Insight: He left Monday's game with knee soreness and is dealing with the issue again after catching a full game Tuesday. The Royals have Thursday off so Perez should be back in the lineup Friday at Texas unless tests reveal something.

Brian McCann, C, NYY8/21/2014 11:09:00 AM
Description: Yankees catcher Brian McCann is not in Thursday's starting lineup.

Buster Posey, C, SFG8/21/2014 9:46:00 AM
Description: Giants catcher Buster Posey was out Wednesday against the Cubs because his left hip flared up Tuesday night and is questionable for Thursday's game against the Chicago Cubs.
Insight: Posey has been getting treatment all day and manager Bruce Bochy hopes to have him behind the plate Thursday. However, Thursday is complicated by the necessary completion of the appealed game from Tuesday. Posey is batting .278 with 13 homers, 58 RBI, 48 runs and a .760 OPS, much closer to last year's numbers than his 2012 MVP season.
Salvador Perez, C, KAN8/20/2014 9:03:00 PM

Description: Cleveland catcher Yan Gomes is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Twins.
Insight: Roberto Perez is getting the start. Gomes has batted .284 with 17 homers, 53 RBI, 52 runs and an .804 OPS this season, making him one of the top fantasy backstops. Jonathan Lucroy played this afternoon and Gomes, Devin Mesoraco and Buster Posey are all sitting Wednesday night, so daily league owners don't have a lot of options at catcher behind Victor Martinez.
Devin Mesoraco, C, CIN8/20/2014 5:49:00 PM
Description: Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Cardinals.
Insight: Mesoraco has gone hitless in his last 19 at-bats, so he'll get the night off. Brayan Pena is catching.

Derek Norris, C, OAK8/20/2014 12:45:00 PM
Description: Athletics catcher Derek Norris is not in the lineup Wednesday due to a back injury, according to Joe Stiglich of csnbayarea.com.
Insight: The Athletics start three players with catching experience -- Norris, John Jaso, Stephen Vogt -- every day, so they can afford to sit Norris. The back injury isn't affecting him while catching, just while running the bases.

Description: Yankees catcher Brian McCann went 1-for-4 with a homer and two RBI Tuesday against Houston.

Wilson Ramos, C, WASHot8/19/2014 3:36:00 PM

The catcher has five home runs in 94 at-bats with the Kansas City and Toronto this season.
Salvador Perez, C, KAN8/18/2014 10:54:00 PM
Description: Royals catcher Salvador Perez left Monday's game with right knee discomfort, according to Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star.
Insight: The Royals called it a "precautionary measure." We imagine all everyday catchers are dealing with knee soreness to a certain degree at this point in the season. A day or two off should do the trick.

Description: Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos went 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBI Monday against Arizona.
Insight: Ramos has hit .324 with five homers and 21 RBI in 35 games since he returned from a strained right hamstring.

Description: Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco is in Monday night's starting lineup despite struggling at the plate.

Description: Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki is not in Monday night's starting lineup.

Evan Gattis, C, ATL8/18/2014 3:55:00 PM
Description: Braves catcher Evan Gattis is not in Monday night's starting lineup
Insight: Gattis has struggled over the past four weeks, managing to hit just .231 with two homers, eight RBI and a .658 OPS. That's well below his season long numbers.
Hector Sanchez, C, SFG8/18/2014 3:16:00 PM
Description: Giants catcher Hector Sanchez left Saturday's rehab start with Triple-A Fresno after taking a foul tip off his mask. The Giants say Sanchez was lifted for precautionary reasons.
Insight: This has to be somewhat alarming since this is the second time Sanchez has left a rehab start for getting hit with a foul tip in the mask. Sanchez should still be activated soon, but he will only see the field to spell Buster Posey and isn't a viable fantasy pickup.
Kurt Suzuki, C, MINHot8/16/2014 9:55:00 PM
Description: Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki went 2-for-3 with a solo homer and two runs Saturday against the Royals.
Insight: Suzuki has had a very good season, but home runs haven't been a big part of it. He's hitting .310 with three long balls, 49 RBI, 32 runs and a .777 OPS.

Description: Athletics catcher Derek Norris is not in the lineup Saturday at Atlanta.
Insight: Norris has gone 2-for-18 (.111) with six Ks in his last five games. With Julio Teheran on the mound for the Braves and no DH available, lefty-swinging John Jaso will start behind the plate.
Carlos Ruiz, C, PHICold8/16/2014 2:51:00 PM
Description: Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz is out of the lineup Saturday against San Francisco.
Insight: Ruiz caught 10 innings Friday night, so he'll give way to Wil Nieves on Saturday. He has hit just .184 in August.
Dioner Navarro, C, TOR8/16/2014 12:12:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays catcher Dioner Navarro owns a .400 average, two doubles, and three homers in his career against White Sox starter John Danks.
Insight: The switch-hitting catcher has hit better against righties this season, but he's owned Danks in his career. He could be a good low-cost option Saturday against the homer-prone southpaw.
Evan Gattis, C, ATL8/15/2014 10:34:00 PM
Description: Braves catcher Evan Gattis hit his first homer since July 28 Friday against Oakland.

Description: Its a very small sample size, but Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy is 5-for-6 versus Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke.
Insight: Lucroy was just 2-for-16 in the four-game series with the Cubs, but he has been a consistent force from the catching position all season for fantasy owners, batting .303 with 12 homers, 53 RBI, 57 runs and an .852 OPS.
Salvador Perez, C, KAN8/15/2014 1:44:00 PM
