2014 Outlook: Now there we go. Long considered a future top-10 fantasy catcher, Ramos' career had, entering 2013, been marred by injuries. But after returning from a lengthy absence due to a hamstring issue, he started 55 of the Washington Nationals' final 67 games last season, batting .261 with 12 home runs and 42 RBIs, with seven of those homers and 26 of the RBIs coming in 24 September contests. Ramos' durability was the greater surprise, but he had always been praised for his underrated pop. If he can extend his good health into 2014, he'll be one of the more-utilized full-time catchers in the game, with the potential to lead his position in homers and RBIs, albeit at the expense of a mediocre on-base percentage (take note of that if your league counts it). There's risk here, but the reward is awfully good considering his likely mid-round status.
2014 Outlook: Lobaton's role as Jose Molina's platoon partner came to an end after Tampa acquired Ryan Hanigan. But Lobaton's improved 2013 campaign impressed Washington enough to trade for Lobaton to be the backup to Wilson Ramos. Barring an injury to Ramos, Lobaton won't get the same playing time as last season, yielding him waiver-wire fodder even in deep leagues using two catchers.
