Latest Update Saltalamacchia belts 10th home run of the season Tue Jul, 22, 12:42 AM
A switch-hitter, he boasts good plate discipline and big-time power. Is versatile enough to also play first base if needed, mainly due to his huge frame.
Flaws: : Is somewhat injury-prone. Must also smooth out the rough patches in his game-calling and receiving ability, as well as throwing out base-stealers. Needs to develop more consistency with the bat, as well.
The home run was Saltys 10th of the season and his third of the month. As nice as all that looks, his overall production is spread too far apart, in-between long stretches of way too many 0-for-ers to warrant ownership in most single catcher leagues that dont count on-base percentage.Analyst: Michael Pichan
Salty has put together a nice, little six-game hit streak here and is batting .269 (which is actually good for him) with two home runs, seven RBI and four runs scored over that span. He seems primed to match last year's totals, though the batting average might be a struggle, but any thoughts of him reaching the 20-home run barrier again seem fleeting at best.Analyst: Howard Bender
Salty was behind the plate for the full 14 innings of Saturday's game, so he could use a little breather here. Jeff Mathis will get the nod against lefty Tom Milone on Sunday.Analyst: Howard Bender
Salty begun to sizzle a bit at the plate as he has at least one hit in each of his last three games going 4-for-11 (.364) with a home run, a double, three walks, three RBI, and two runs scored.Analyst: Michael Pichan
