Season Recap: Andrew Knapp

Who will catch the most games for the Phillies in 2018? There's little doubt that Jorge Alfaro is the most talented of the three likely catchers. We also know that Cameron Rupp is the most experienced catcher. But I'd argue there's a good chance Andrew Knapp gets the most starts in 2018.

Look, Alfaro drips talent, but he's still incredibly raw behind the plate. Rupp has been a solid catcher, but he's averaged 91 games caught the past three seasons and he seemed to take a slight step back in 2017. So it stands to reason that Knapp could, if an injury occurs and the Phillies are playing well, get a good stretch of playing time. So let's look at what he did in his rookie season.

In the coming days, we're going to recap every player who spent a part of  2017 with the Philadelphia Phillies. The previous post looked at relief pitcher Edubray Ramos. We even have a landing post with a link to each player's season.

Knapp played in 56 games, slashing a respectable .257/.368/.368/.735. In his previous three minor league seasons he had a .385, .375, .330 on-base percentage. That's a valuable took. He also has a solid track record with extra base hits, but didn't really drive the ball in his rookie season. He hit just eight doubles, a triple and three home runs during the year. Defensively, he gave you basically what you expect from a rookie catcher.

I’m in favor in trading Rupp for whatever, maybe a decent utility infielder. Let Knapp and Alfaro handle catching duties.
