    Player Outlook

    Because he has a reputation for working well with pitchers, Kurt Suzuki continues to hold down a regular job in the majors even though he provides little of value to Fantasy owners. His best skill offensively is that he rarely strikes out, which does give him some low-end appeal in points leagues, but at age 32, he's never losing that "low-end" designation. Even when he appeared to break free early in 2014, hitting .309 in the first half to earn a trip to the All-Star game, he predictably came back down to earth, hitting .244 in the year and a half since. He's an OK choice late in AL-only leagues, particularly two-catcher formats, but then again, just about anyone getting regular at-bats is.

    • Twins' Kurt Suzuki: Has competition for starting job
      By RotoWire Staff

      Suzuki will likely find himself in a spring training battle for the starting catcher job now that the Twins have acquired John Ryan Murphy from the Yankees in exchange for Aaron Hicks. As the incumbent Suzuki may be perceived to have a bit of an advantage, but Murphy had the edge in batting average, OBP, slugging percentage, wOBA, and wRC+ last season, so as long as the Twins view the defense as comparable, Suzuki could see a noticeable dip in playing time.
