Latest Update Jeff Mathis hits second home run Thu May, 15, 08:27 AM
A good athlete for a catcher, he throws well and calls a very good game behind the dish. Leads by example. Is definitely future manager material.
Flaws: : Has too many holes in his swing, leading to streakiness at the plate as well as too many strikeouts. Lacks patience, too, so he's not an everyday catcher.
Although Mathis finished with a monster game on Wednesday night, his lack of at-bats (26 AB) will keep him from gaining any real fantasy value. Unless Jarrod Saltalamacchia was to suffer an injury, there is no reason the Marlins backup catcher should be on anyone's fantasy radar. Analyst: Matthew Beck
