  1. Its great to see Erik Davis who continually get better each season from the horrible baseball accident he was in. He has the mental toughness to complete a the highest level.

  2. It takes a lot of guts to get back on the mound after getting hit with a comebacker like that.
    I took one to the chest and that made me scared to go back out there for a little while. I couldn't imagine doing what Davis did that soon after his surgeries.

Catchers By Age

The best way to analyze prospects is using their age in relation to the level they are playing at. Without taking too much of the level into account to start, I'll just be looking at age.

If a player is 26.01 on that date, he falls into the 26 year old age category. The age won't always match what is listed on Baseball Reference or FanGraphs but that is how I do it. If I don't have a players birthdate, I use the age listed on Baseball Reference.

Catchers typically progress slower than players at most other positions. The average time for a  college catcher to make it to the majors is 4.15 years. The average for a high school catchers is 5.27 years. This time can be reduced if a player has a higher skill level. Elite players only take 3.04 years out of college and 4.09 out of high school.
