9/28/2014 11:11:00 AM
Description: Miami catcher Jarrod Saltalmacchia will sit for the finale.
Insight: J.T. Realmuto gets the start today. Salty finishes 2014 with a .220/.320/.363 line, along with 11 homeruns and 44 RBI. There are better options at catcher heading into 2015.
 
9/19/2014 12:20:00 PM
Description: Miami catcher Jarrod Saltalmacchia is a career 5-for-11 (.455) against Nationals starter Doug Fister.
Insight: If you are looking for the 2012 version of Saltalamacchia who blasted 25 homers, he's not home. Salty is batting .225 with 11 homers and 44 RBI, but he does have a nice matchup.
 
7/2/2014 10:38:00 PM
Description: Miami catcher Jarrod Saltalmacchia went 1-for-3 with a homer and two RBI Wednesday against the Phillies.
Insight: Saltalamacchia has gone 10-for-39 (.256) with three doubles, two home runs and seven RBI in 10 games since returning from a concussion.
 
Cold7/1/2014 10:06:00 AM
Description: Miami catcher Jarrod Saltalmacchia is 2-for-17 (.118) with 10 strikeouts versus Phillies right-hander A.J. Burnett.
Insight: He's been disappointing so far in 2014 and as all his numbers are down from a season ago (.241, 7 HR, 20 RBI, .751 OPS).
 
6/22/2014 11:53:00 AM
Description: Miami catcher Jarrod Saltalmacchia will sit out Sunday's series finale against New York.
Insight: He's gone 3-for-11 since making his return from the disabled list earlier this week. Jeff Mathis (.203, 2 HR, 5 RB) is getting the start in Salty's place.
 
6/18/2014 4:19:00 PM
Description: The Marlins have activated catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia from the 15-day disabled list.
Insight: Saltalamacchia (.237, 6 HR, 17 RBI) suffered a concussion in late May and needed about three weeks to recover. He should be in the lineup Thursday against New York.
 
Cold6/6/2014 11:09:00 AM
Description: Marlins catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia was still reporting post-concussion symptoms earlier in the week so he isn't likely to return in seven days.
Insight: Saltalamacchia is batting just .177 with one homer and 30 Ks in May. Jeff Mathis has done little with the opportunity to play regularly and just-brought-up J.T. Realmuto knocked in three runs with two hits Thursday night in his first start.
 
Cold6/1/2014 9:48:00 AM
Description: The Marlins have placed catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia on the 7-day disabled list.
Insight: Saltalamacchia is dealing with a concussion. He's batted just .177 with one homer and 30 Ks in May. Jeff Mathis will take over as the starting backstop for Miami.
 
5/25/2014 11:19:00 AM
Description: Miami will be without catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia Sunday against the Brewers. SOURCE: Joe Frisaro, MLB.com
Insight: We're chalking it up to a routine off day though it's worth noting Salty did sit out a few games earlier this week because of an ankle injury. Jeff Mathis (.294, 2 HR, 4 RBI) is starting in his place.
 
5/22/2014 10:59:00 AM
Description: Marlins catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia is not in Thursday's starting lineup
Insight: Saltalamacchia rolled an ankle running the bases on Wednesday, but was probably in line for the day off anyway with the early afternoon start.
 
5/20/2014 10:35:00 AM
Description: Marlins catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia apparently doesn't see the ball well against Phillies starter A.J. Burnett as he's just 1-for-12 with seven strikeouts in their matchups.
Insight: Saltalamacchia isn't one of the big name catchers, but he's batting a respectable .268 with six homers, 13 RBI and a .823 OPS.
 
4/23/2014 10:54:00 AM
Description: Marlins catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia won't be in the lineup Wednesday against Atlanta. SOURCE: Joe Frisaro, MLB.com
Insight: It's pretty common for catchers to sit out the day game after a night game so fantasy owners shouldn't be too thrown off by this. Saltalamacchia isn't one of the more exciting fantasy options at catcher but he did have a 25-HR season as recently as 2012.
 
4/20/2014 11:40:00 AM
Description: Miami catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia will receive a day of rest Sunday against the Mariners.
Insight: Salty is hitting .283 with four doubles, two homers, 10 walks and 17 strikeouts in 53 at-bats so far. Jeff Mathis is catching Kevin Slowey.
 
4/13/2014 1:10:00 PM
Description: Miami catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia is getting a day off Sunday versus Philadelphia.
Insight: He caught all ten innings last night and could probably use the rest. Joe Mathis (.200, 0 HR, 0 RBI) is making his third start of the year behind the plate.
 
4/11/2014 9:43:00 AM
Description: Marlins catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia should be avoided on Friday in the series opener with Philadelphia.
Insight: Saltalamacchia is 1-for-10 over his career, a single, with seven strikeouts. He's off to a solid start, batting .276 with a homer and four RBI, but having played in hitter-friendly parks in Texas and Boston we don't think he's going to like Miami all that much.
 
12/3/2013 8:17:00 PM
Description: The Marlins have signed catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia to a three-year deal worth $21 million. SOURCE: Juan C. Rodriguez, Sun Sentinel
Insight: Saltalamacchia was also being pursued by Minnesota. He ended up choosing the Marlins because they were the only team that offered him three years. He's a serviceable fantasy catcher though he tends to strike out a lot (139 K's in 425 at bats last season).
 
Cold11/27/2013 1:00:00 PM
Description: If the Red Sox want to keep Jarrod Saltalamacchia, they may have to wait in line. The free agent catcher is also being pursued by the Blue Jays, Rockies and Twins according to NESN's Jen Slothower.
Insight: Boston struck out with Carlos Ruiz (re-signed with Philadelphia) and Brian McCann (Yankees), which leaves Salty and veteran A.J. Pierzynski as the top catchers left on the market. The Twins are in the running because they've decided to make Joe Mauer a full-time first baseman. Saltalamacchia (.273, 14 HR, 65 RBI) had his moments in 2013 but inconsistency caused him to lose his starting job to David Ross in the postseason.
 
Cold10/27/2013 10:58:00 AM
Description: Catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia sealed Boston's fate by delivering a poor throw to third base late in Saturday's loss to St. Louis.
Insight: Will Middlebrooks was charged with the error but the throw was one that never should have been made. Saltalamacchia's poor defense also contributed to a loss two nights earlier back at Fenway Park (he mishandled a throw from left fielder Jonny Gomes, which led to a pair of runs). Salty's poor play in the field could be overlooked if he was hitting but he's not doing that either (.188 AVG in 32 postseason at bats). Look for David Ross to sub in for the struggling Saltalamacchia Sunday in Game 4.
 
10/24/2013 7:01:00 PM
Description: Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia is back in the lineup after sitting out Game 1 Wednesday night.
Insight: David Ross has been catching all of Jon Lester's starts, so it wasn't a surprise to see Salty on the sidelines yesterday. He's never faced tonight's starting pitcher Michael Wacha.
 
10/19/2013 11:19:00 AM
Description: Boston catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia has a good track record against Max Scherzer.
Insight: He's hitting .417 against him in 12 at bats. Saltalamacchia (.273 AVG this postseason) sat out Game 5 but he should be back in there on Saturday.
