It might have had his current totals this year not looked eerily similar to his rates and totals from 2010. A lot of his numbers have remained consistent, but this season’s GB% and GB/FB are back up to where they were. To me, that tells me that his .364 BABIP helped him out tremendously last season.

If Rosario was playing full-time, then I’d be inclined to say so. However, with the assumption that Hernandez comes back and the two split time evenly, I’d say to go with Perez. You should get a small handful of home runs, but it’s his average that will be a huge boost. I’d rather have that than the hope of some Rosario power in half the at-bats. Of course, if the Rockies were to announce that Rosario will get the majority of starts behind the plate, I’d probably go with him for the power potential.

I think I agree…in 2 catcher leagues, if you get someone who won’t hurt you in any category for that 2nd spot, it’s a win. Best case for Rosario, he hits another 10 HR with a .240 BA. More likely it’s 6-7 HR at .225, with downside below that. I may look to cash my Rosario stock in my weekly league before I lose all the value earned over the past month or so.
