Yadier Molina, Salvador Perez underrated
By this point, most everyone should know what Molina brings to the table, and it's more than fantastic defense. After years of providing mostly safe batting averages, Molina smacked 14 home runs in 2011; his previous career best was eight from 2005. Molina's current ESPN catcher rank of ninth doesn't reflect the theory that his power will continue to grow, but it's not uncommon for backstops to develop this skill late. Molina is only 29. As far as keeper-league catchers go, I'd call him a relatively safe bet for the next few seasons, and a top-10 option.
