C: Yorvit Torrealba

Rangers (all stats through June 1)

The journeyman signed as a free agent coming off the best two seasons of his career catching for 90-win teams in Colorado and San Diego. He's been one of the worst hitters in baseball in 2011, with a .213/.243/.326 line and just six walks through June 1. He makes up some value with his arm, throwing out 39 percent of basestealers and allowing just 20 steals, although he benefits from a heavily left-handed Rangers staff in that regard. Mike Napoli has been chipping away at Torrealba's playing time, moving into a 50/50 split of the starts, and will probably hold that ratio until and unless Torrealba finds his stroke.
