JT Realmuto (32, Philadelphia Phillies), who monopolized the National League Gold Glove and Silver Slugger last year, was selected as the best current catcher.
On the 3rd (Korean time), the US MLB Network selected the TOP 10 catchers in charge of each team’s home. Among them, two players from two teams made it to the TOP 10.
First of all, Realmuto rose to the top spot. This is the result of monopolizing the Gold Glove and Silver Slugger last year. Realmuto deserves to be called the best catcher in his career.
Realmuto recorded a batting average of 0.276, 22 homers, 84 RBIs, 75 points, 139 hits, and an on-base percentage of 0.342 OPS of 0.820 in 139 games last year.
Also, Realmuto recorded very good numbers in defense. As a result, Realmuto’s FWAR last year reached a whopping 6.5. A performance worth more than 20 million dollars.
Based on these performances, Realmuto ranked 7th in the National League Most Valuable Player (MVP) vote and won both the Gold Glove and Silver Slugger.
In second place was Will Smith (28, LA Dodgers), who has excellent long hitting power. After hitting 25 home runs in 2021, Smith hit 24 home runs last year.
In third place, Adley Larchman (35, Baltimore Orioles), who made his major league debut last year, was a super prospect.
In 113 games last year, Rutchman recorded a batting average of 0.254, 13 homers, 42 RBIs, 70 points, 101 hits, and an on-base percentage of 0.362 OPS of 0.806, ranking second in the American League Rookie of the Year. 메이저놀이터
After that, Sean Murphy, Wilson Contreras, Alejandro Kirk, Travis Dano, Salvador Perez, Danny Jansen, and Tyler Stevenson took the 4th through 10th places.
Unusually, Murphy and Dano, 4th and 7th for the Atlanta Braves, and Kirk and Jansen, 6th and 9th for the Toronto Blue Jays, were named at the same time.
This roster appears to have been chosen with an emphasis on offense. Jose Trevino (31), who won the Gold Glove and Platinum Glove in the American League catcher category last year, is excluded.
