5/13/2015 10:26:00 PM
Description: Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki had an RBI-double in the, 6-2, victory over the Tigers on Wednesday.
Insight: Suzuki doubled in the third after Joe Mauer and Trevor Plouffe had back-to-back triples. Suzuki was 2-for-3 with a walk in the game. He is hitting .247 with two home runs and 11 RBI this season.
 
4/9/2015 11:58:00 AM
Description: Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki will get Thursday afternoon off.
Insight: The catcher is just 1-for-6 this season and not much of a fantasy asset. Chris Herrmann will get the start behind the plate. He's a career .196 hitter, so you can easily guess that he's not the guy to have in your lineup.
 
9/25/2014 10:32:00 AM
Description: It is a small sample size, but Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki is a career .400 (4-for-10) hitter against Tigers starting pitcher Max Scherzer.
Insight: The catcher also has a home run in his 10 at-bats. Prior to his 0-for-3 on Tuesday, Suzuki had hits in his previous nine games.
 
8/18/2014 4:15:00 PM
Description: Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki is not in Monday night's starting lineup.
Insight: Suzuki went 5-for-10 in the most recent series with the Royals. He has had a very good season, but home runs haven't been a big part of it. He's hitting .307 with three long balls, 49 RBI, 32 runs and a .768 OPS.
 
Hot8/16/2014 9:55:00 PM
Description: Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki went 2-for-3 with a solo homer and two runs Saturday against the Royals.

7/31/2014 6:16:00 PM
Description: Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki has signed a two-year, $12 million contract extension with a vesting option for 2017, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.
Insight: Suzuki, who made the All-Star team this year, was reportedly on the trade block, but the Twins have decided to make a commitment to the 30-year-old rather than hand the catcher job to Josmil Pinto.
 
7/12/2014 3:38:00 PM
Description: Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki is not in Saturday's starting lineup versus Tyler Matzek and the Colorado Rockies.
Insight: Suzuki is a .300 hitting catcher that almost no one is talking about. He's batting .306 with 18 doubles, two homers, 35 RBI, 25 runs and a .756 OPS.
 
Hot6/22/2014 5:37:00 PM
Description: Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki went 3-for-4 with a double Sunday against the White Sox.

6/22/2014 10:46:00 AM
Description: Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki could be in for a tough day Sunday against White Sox starter John Danks.
Insight: Suzuki (.313, 2 HR, 32 RBI) has only managed one hit against him in 15 career at bats. The veteran's eight-game hitting streak could be in jeopardy.
 
5/28/2014 10:30:00 AM
Description: If you're selecting a catcher for Wednesday, don't pick Minnesota's Kurt Suzuki.
Insight: Suzuki is 2-for-31 (.065) against Rangers left-hander Joe Saunders. He's had a strong season, hitting .297 with two homers, 27 RBI and just 12 Ks, but he isn't likely to have a good day Wednesday against Saunders.
 
Hot5/18/2014 10:03:00 AM
Description: Minnesota catcher Kurt Suzuki is hitting .322 with 26 RBI this season and has batted .314 against Mariners starter Felix Hernandez.
Insight: Suzuki has gone 11-for-35 with four doubles and a homer against Hernandez, Sunday's scheduled starter against the Twins.
 
Hot5/15/2014 10:26:00 PM
Description: Minnesota catcher Kurt Suzuki (3-for-5) scored the game-winning run Thursday in a walkoff win over the Red Sox.
Insight: Suzuki is 10-for-23 with three RBI in his last five outings. His .325 average in 114 at bats this season leads all big league catchers.
 
5/4/2014 6:55:00 PM
Description: Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki drove in three runs Sunday against the Orioles.
Insight: Suzuki went 3-for-3 with two doubles and now has a .325 average and 22 RBI. No backstop has more RBI.
 
4/24/2014 6:09:00 PM
Description: Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki went 3-for-4 with three RBI Thursday at Tampa Bay.
Insight: Suzuki's 17 RBI rank first among backstops this year. The 30-year-old has struck out just six times and is hitting .310.
 
1/25/2014 9:27:00 PM
Description: According to Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Twins GM Terry Ryan said Friday he wasn't sure who would back up Kurt Suzuki this season, effectively naming Suzuki the starter.
Insight: Suzuki will only be a fantasy option in AL-only leagues. The 30-year-old has a .253 average, 67 homers and a .684 OPS in 840 career games.
 
12/20/2013 11:23:00 AM
Description: Minnesota has agreed to terms with catcher Kurt Suzuki, according to the San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser.
Insight: He'll earn $2.75 million in 2014. Suzuki's offense has gone south of late, but he's a good defensive catcher and a nice guy to have in the clubhouse. The Twins hope that youngster Josmil Pinto (.314 at Triple-A Rochester) can grab the lion's share of the catching duties with Suzuki as his backup and Joe Mauer at first base.
 
8/23/2013 2:55:00 PM
Description: Oakland has re-acquired catcher Kurt Suzuki in a trade with Washington.
Insight: He'll fill in while Derek Norris and John Jaso are out with injuries. Suzuki will be more useful to the A's than to fantasy owners with his .223 batting average and .595 OPS.
 
6/6/2013 11:16:00 AM
Description: Washington catcher Kurt Suzuki hasn't had much success against Mets righthander Shaun Marcum.
Insight: He only has one hit in 11 career at bats against him. Catcher is a thin position in fantasy but you can probably do better than Suzuki (.237, 2 HR, 11 RBI). Definitely don't start him Thursday against New York.
