Past the halfway mark ... with a 30% HR/FB ratio.

I guess that's how you stay on pace for 30+ HR while hitting the ball on the ground 50% of the time.

And your starting and backup catchers hitting 4th and 5th.

A friend who is a Cubs' fan sez ... 

How often do you have the starting All-Star Catcher start a game
for you in RF??  Gotta love Joe Maddon.

Willson Contreras (C) CHI-N - Apr. 12

Contreras went 3-for-4 with two solo homers in a 5-1 victory against the Angels on Friday.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The day off Thursday apparently did some good, as Contreras was 1-for-11 this week before his three-hit game to start the weekend series.

It's not fair to compare players at different positions with the Field (fielding runs saved above average) that we show from Fangraphs, since the "average" changes drastically according to the position. But comparisons within positions are interesting.

Buster Posey, for example, gets a Field of zero from Fangraphs.

Willson Contreras (C) CHI-N - Mar. 5

Contreras went 2-for-3 with a double, a run and an RBI in Tuesday's Cactus League loss to the Angels.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Contreras is off to a great start this spring, slashing .385/.467/.923 through 13 at-bats with two home runs, six runs scored and six RBI. The young catcher didn't quite live up to preseason expectations in 2018, but the talent is certainly there for him to rebound and be an elite option at the position in 2019.
