2014 Projections1441561714551.215.288.389.676
2014 Outlook: Lost in the hoopla of Boston's magical season was that Ross struggled mightily at the dish, fanning at a career-worst rate while hitting far fewer line drives than normal. Now 37 years old, not much of a bounce back should be expected.
48. Martin Maldonado, Mil CYEARABRHRRBIBBKSBAVGOBPSLGOPS

2014 Projections1831811724210.251.346.306.652
2014 Outlook: A series of injuries curtailed Hanigan's already limited offensive ability last season, but the Rays did not acquire him for his bat. His strength with the stick is excellent contact though it is devoid of any pop. If you're looking for a second catcher in AL-only formats that won't hurt your average, ignore last season's injury-riddled disaster. Hanigan should rebound sufficiently to use so long as you have power covered elsewhere.
50. Christian Bethancourt, Atl CYEARABRHRRBIBBKSBAVGOBPSLGOPS
2013 Statistics1000010.000.000.000.000
2014 Projections514142111.216.241.314.554
2014 Outlook: A polished defensive prospect, Bethancourt makes a lot of sense for the Atlanta Braves as a backup/part-time catcher, even right at the start of 2014. They'll have offensively oriented Evan Gattis as their projected starter and light-hitting Gerald Laird as his backup; Bethancourt is a nice blend of their collective talents, possessing a strong arm, contact-hitting ability and a hint of pop. He'll need to prove his worth to make the team and be a viable No. 2 catcher in NL-only formats, but it's possible he'll emerge as one by year's end at the latest.
51. Jose Molina, TB CYEARABRHRRBIBBKSBAVGOBPSLGOPS
2013 Statistics2832621822632.233.290.304.594
2014 Projections2292332018532.227.287.314.601
2014 Outlook: It says more about the back-end of the catcher inventory than it does about Molina that he's an option for a second catcher in standard, AL-only formats. The .281 average he toted in 2011 was a fluke, completely driven by a lucky hit rate. That said, last season's home-run total was a bit unlucky.
52. Gerald Laird, Atl CYEARABRHRRBIBBKSBAVGOBPSLGOPS
2013 Statistics1211211314231.281.367.372.739
2014 Projections111121911191.252.328.342.670
2014 Outlook: Don't be fooled by his .282 and .281 batting averages of the past two seasons; Laird is your typical all-glove, no-bat backup backstop. He's in a prime spot to secure a respectable number of at-bats, as the caddy for all-bat, no-glove catchers Evan Gattis and Ryan Doumit, but if his .320 BABIP corrects, that might actually harm more than help those NL-only owners desperate enough to grab him as a No. 2 option.

2014 Outlook: Break out your tired "Buck for a buck" auction puns, except that this year, knowing that Buck is destined for a backup role behind Mike Zunino, understand that if you cast such a bid, you might hear crickets. Never a high-average hitter -- he has a .234 career mark, .215 in the past three seasons combined and has batted better than .247 in only one of his 10 seasons (.281, in 2010) -- Buck's fantasy value is rooted entirely in power. And while fewer at-bats means less damage to your batting average, it also means fewer opportunities to hit said homers. He's an AL-only desperation No. 2.
