As we continue through the waning days of the MLB Offseason with Spring Training creeping up on the horizon, it’s time to get started with some very early draft prep with the help of Fansided.  This season, you can expect plenty of fantasy baseball analysis all season long on our fantasy baseball page so make sure to drop a bookmark of follow me on twitter @ZT_Sports where I’ll be posting the links to all the daily content.

We started last week with a look at one of the most tumultuous positions in baseball this offseason: Catcher.  We started in the American League and ran down each team’s catching options and a quick outlook for the coming season.  Later in the week, we turned our attention to the National League and did the same thing.  Before we move on to our next position, I thought it would be helpful to do a pre-spring training rankings just to compile all the preview information into a quick, simple one-stop format.

For further breakdown on all these players check out the links above, but here is how I would rank the MLB catchers for fantasy baseball 2014:
