Who is the current ML best catcher?… This player who swept ‘Gold Glove + Silver Slugger’
JT Realmuto, who also played a big role last season, is currently selected as the best catcher in the major leagues.
‘MLB Network’ selected the TOP 10 best catchers on the 3rd 안전놀이터 (Korean time). At the top of this list is Philadelphia Phillies starting catcher Realmuto.
Few doubt that Realmuto is the best catcher right now. Last year, he had a batting average of 0.276, 22 homers, 84 RBIs, 75 runs, and an OPS of 0.820. Also, unlike most catchers who have slow feet, Realmuto showed off his fast feet, recording 21 stolen bases last year.
Thanks to his great performance, Philadelphia succeeded in reaching the World Series and created a miracle. After the season, he won the Silver Slugger as well as the Gold Glove while showing good defense. He came 7th in MVP voting.
In addition, Los Angeles Dodgers’ Will Smith rose to second place. Smith played an active part in the offense and defense by creating seasons of 20 or more homers for two consecutive years.
Adley Luchman (Baltimore Orioles), who made his debut last year, rose to third place. With a batting average of 0.254, 13 homers, 42 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.806, Ritchman ranked second in the American League Rookie of the Year following Julio Rodriguez (Seattle Mariners).
There was little disagreement about the players ranked at the top, but negative opinions about the rankings are coming out. Jose Trevino, who won the Gold Glove and Platinum Glove in the American League catcher category last year, is excluded. Fans are interpreting this roster as an offense-oriented selection.
