Yan Gomes

Gomez is probably one of the most accessible catchers on the market as he is a free agent next year if the team option is not engaged. Gomez is the best option for the defense and pitching of Miami as he is a veteran catcher and he has thrown out 5 of 20 on stolen base attempts this year.  Gomez is less of a bat however than the rest but has shown a power increase this year with 6 home runs and 19 RBI.  

His slash line sits at .280/.304/.458 with an OPS of .762 and his home run percentage (5.2%) and  strikeout percentage (18.3%) are big improvements over other options, something Kim Ng would favor.  Gomes’ 5.2% home run rate is a huge improvement over his 3.6% career average and could be the stat that wins over Marlins brass paired with his high average and lower strikeout percentage.
