The Rangers won the division last season despite getting abysmal production from their catchers, who hit .212/.288/.317 and had the third-lowest OPS in the majors at the position. That's why the trade for Mike Napoli—the former Angel who spent four days as a Blue Jay during the off-season before being flipped to Texas for Frank Francisco—could be their biggest move of the winter. Napoli, 29, is a career .251/.346/.485 batter, but his reputation as a backstop belies his performance. Napoli has thrown out 23.9% of runners trying to steal in his career; the league average in 2010 was 23.1%. Yes, he is below average at moving behind the plate and getting to balls in front of it and isn't especially skilled at handling a pitching staff. Mike Scioscia prefers his catchers to be defensive specialists, a decision that cost the Angels runs they desperately needed last year. Texas can get a boost by recognizing that Napoli's bat adds more than his glove takes away and by committing to him as the No. 1 catcher—a move Los Angeles never quite made. Free-agent pickup Yorvit Torrealba should be the backup.
