Fantasy Impact - Saltalamacchia will probably fool many drafters into thinking his .273 average in 2013 is the norm, but his ceiling is still only a 18 home run hitter with a .260 average. His R and RBI totals will assuredly drop with the weak lineup around him. With the budding catcher market, Salty only warrants a draft pick in 12-team leagues or if in dire need of a catcher.
Predictions - .255, 50 R, 15 HR, 58 RBI, 45 BB, 140 K, 1 SB
