Here we have the last of the reader requests.  If no one has another before this evening, I will move on to the regularly scheduled add/drop programming.

First, we did the standard 5×5 categories.  You can find them here in case you missed them: batting average, runs, home runs, RBI, steals, wins, ERA, WHIP, strikeouts, saves

The reader requests we have had so far are holds and OPS.

This last reader request comes from Kevin, who plays in a league that counts total bases.

I will give you three players at each position.  One  for standard, moderate, and deep leagues. Standard league players will be available in 10-50 percent of leagues. Moderate league players will be available in 50-90 percent of leagues. The deep leagues will focus on players owned in ten percent of leagues or less.

Catchers:

Standard:

Salvador Perez, Royals: While his overall numbers are disappointing, Perez has still managed to rack up 69 total bases, which is fourth among catchers.  Yes, he is ahead of Buster Posey, Joe Mauer, and Evan Gattis.  He has been quite an asset overall in leagues that count total bases.  That helps make up for his sub-par overall numbers.

Moderate:

Yan Gomes, Indians: Gomes is showing why Cleveland moved Carlos Santana out from behind the plate.  His 71 total bases are third overall among catchers, and his overall numbers are enough to help you out across the board.

Deep:

Mike Zunino, Mariners: Zunino’s 64 total bases put him in the top ten at the catcher position.  His .239 average hurts some, but if you are in a sabermetrics league, the batting average won’t count anway.  He does have a solid OPS, meaning better days could be ahead in the average department.
