The catchers of the Los Angeles Angels are all or nothing when batting

Mike Napoli and Jeff Mathis have been splitting time behind the plate this season and they have produced a lot of runs from the bottom of the batting order, but it’s all or nothing for both of them. Napoli has played in 39 games this season for the Angels and he is 25 for 122 (.205 avg, .758 OPS) with 14 runs scored, 10 homers and 24 RBIs. Napoli often looks helpless at the plate as he has already whiffed 38 times this season. Jeff Mathis was once one of the Angels’ brightest prospects but he has been a huge disappointment for them in his career so far. Mathis has played in 31 games for the Angels this season and he is 20 for 96 (.208 avg, .665 OPS) with 14 runs scored, 4 homers and 13 RBIs. Mathis also whiffs a lot as he has went down on strikes 27 times this season. The Angels probably can live with the all or nothing hitting as long as Napoli and Mathis play good defense.
