Prospect Watch: Top 10 Catchers for 2016 | MLB.com

Top ten catchers.

1. Willson Contreras, Cubs
One of the top breakout prospects of 2015, Contreras led the Southern League in both batting (.333) and extra-base hits (46), and he set personal bests in most offensive categories. Signed out of Venezuela as a third baseman in 2009, he moved behind the plate in 2012 and has continued to make strides defensively. Contreras’ athleticism and arm strength give him a good chance of sticking at the position, though his receiving still needs work.
