Pre-Season 2009: Catcher Rankings
Cody Crosby, FantasyJuice.com

Continuing the countdown to Spring Training, FantasyJuice's experts have independently ranked their top 25 catchers heading into Spring of 2009.

Brian McCann and Russell Martin share the #1 ratings, as expected. Victor Martinez's value plummeted after an injury-plagued 2008.

After the top seven catchers rankings are all over the place at the weak catching position.

Ryan Doumit's value shot-up after a solid 2008 season. Look for him to continue his success in 2009.

Matt Wieters is the 13th ranked catcher, despite never playing a game in the major leagues. His call-up is highly anticipated so keep an eye on him if he goes undrafted in your league.

These rankings will be updated during Spring Training to reflect position changes and Spring performance.
