Nick Hundley is one of the latest Coors Field success stories, going from being light-hitting, who-else-are-we-going-to-play type for the Padres and Orioles to one of the few difference makers at the position in Fantasy. His .301 batting average was more than 50 points higher than his career mark, and naturally, he achieved it mostly at home, batting .355 with a .957 OPS there compared to .237 with a .630 OPS on the road. The only problem is a neck strain sidelined him for most of September, opening the door for the more talented Tom Murphy to make a splash. Hundley is under contract for one more year, so the Rockies will probably use him to ease in the rookie. Still, the expected loss of at-bats makes him more like a No. 2 catcher in mixed leagues.
