Perez, Moustakas’ teammate, received a little more attention in fantasy circles before 2015 coming in with the sixth lowest ADP among catchers.

With a hot April, Perez is outplaying that ADP and finished the month as one of the best fantasy options behind the plate.

He hit .326 with three home runs and 14 RBI in the month, finishing in the top three among catchers in each category. Perez is also a workhorse as he leads all catchers with 86 at-bats.

Perez doesn’t walk a lot, so that will keep his OPS below .900, but his other numbers are as consistent as they get for a catcher.
