Coming off a serviceable major-league debut in 2016, Narvaez was slotted in as the White Sox's Opening Day catcher. Eventually, Narvaez found himself in a three-headed timeshare behind the plate with veterans Geovany Soto and Kevan Smith. After Soto went down with an injury in early May, Narvaez and Smith split the catching duties the rest of the way, each finishing the season with 73 starts to their name. In his sophomore season, Narvaez posted a league-average 100 wRC+ on a .277/.373/.340 slash line while also playing solid defense. His already low power numbers did take a hit, but he was able to increase his batting average by 10 points while continuing to walk at an excellent 12.9 percent clip. The 25-year-old will likely see fewer opportunities with Welington Castillo signing with the White Sox, and his lack of power greatly limits his fantasy appeal to begin with.

  2. Omar Narvaez 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Narvaez hadn't played an inning above High-A in his career prior to 2016, but he made a much bigger impact than expected. He began the campaign with Double-A Birmingham, but he only played 13 games there before he was promoted to Triple-A Charlotte. Although his results were modest at best (.245 batting average, 11 RBI, 14 runs), injuries in Chicago helped the backstop get the call to the big leagues, where he fared surprisingly well. His .267 batting average in 101 at-bats was more than serviceable considering the circumstances, and he impressed many with his plate discipline by posting a strong 14:14 K:BB ratio over that span. He certainly doesn't have the prospect shine that newly drafted Zack Collins has, but at just 24 years old, Narvaez has some room to grow over the years as he continues to face upper-level pitching. He should compete for the starting gig out of spring training if he can maintain this strong showing at the plate.
