Description: Mariners catcher Kelly Shoppach is just 3-for-20 (.150) versus White Sox starter John Danks.
Insight: Shoppach is 2-for-24 over his last six games and with this matchup should be sitting on your bench - not in your lineup.

Description: Mets catcher Kelly Shoppach has been fantastic in his short stint with the team, batting .346 with two homers and seven RBIs.
Insight: Shoppach has also owned Marlins starter Mark Buehrle in 18 at-bats, picking up eight hits and four homers. NL-only and deeper league owners should get Shoppach in the lineup Sunday.

Description: The Mets have activated newly-acquired catcher Kelly Shoppach. Boston traded Shoppach to New York Tuesday for a player to be named later.
Insight: Shoppach accumulated a .250 average with five homers and 17 RBI in limited action with the Red Sox earlier in the year. He might get a few more opportunities in New York than he did in Boston but he's still unlikely to carry much fantasy value.

Description: Under no circumstances should backup Red Sox catcher Kelly Shoppach start against Toronto's Ricky Romero. He's faced him 15 times and is still looking for his first hit.
Insight: Starter Jarrod Saltalamacchia is just 2-for-his-last-15, but he did homer on Tuesday night and is a career .286 hitter versus Romero.

Description: Backup Red Sox catcher Kelly Shoppach "owns" Miami lefty Mark Buehrle, batting .438 against the Marlins scheduled starter with three homers and eight RBI in just 16 at-bats.
Insight: While Jarrod Saltalamacchia is the Boston everyday catcher, the last time Buehrle faced Boston manager Bobby Valentine started Shoppach and he went 2-for-3 with two doubles and an RBI against Buehrle. He'll likely play him tonight too.

Description: Backup Red Sox catcher Kelly Shoppach "owns" Miami lefty Mark Buehrle, batting .385 against the Marlins scheduled starter with three homers and seven RBI in just 13 at-bats.

4/24/2012 10:28:00 AM
Description: Backup Red Sox catcher Kelly Shoppach "owns" Minnesota starter Nick Blackburn, batting .500 against the Twins scheduled starter with three homers and five RBI in 16 at-bats.
Insight: The Boston catcher is batting .375 in limited opportunities, but if manager Bobby Valentine is paying attention to the numbers (Jarrod Saltalamacchia 0-for-3 vs. Blackburn) he'll be in tonight's starting lineup. If he starts, he'd be a great one-day option.

Insight: The Boston catcher also had a couple of RBIs in the Red Sox's 12-2 win. Shoppach is off to a hot start (.364) but he faces an uphill battle for playing time against starting backstop Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
