With Thursday's news that Texas Rangers starting catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia is unfortunately back on the disabled list dealing with upper back stiffness, Taylor Teagarden will become the starter somewhat by default. I know a few people in AL-only leagues who are kind of excited about Teagarden, and were hoping opportunity would come his way. Personally, even in deep leagues, I don't think he can help much, but we're about to see him get another chance.
Overall, the Rangers' catching situation is a somewhat intriguing one for fantasy purposes. Let's look at the prospects of their more notable backstops.
