The countdown for the Top 10 MLB players at each position is complete.
Last night, MLB Network revealed their final list of top players, finishing things off by counting down the Top 10 catchers in the league.
Some catchers on the list include Willson Contreras, Adley Rutschman, Sean Murphy, Tyler Stephenson, Travis d’Arnaud, Will Smith, Salvador Perez, Danny Jansen, and Alejandro Kirk.
But at the top of the list is none other than Philadelphia Phillies backstop J.T. Realmuto, who helped lead the team to its first World Series appearance since 2009.

Realmuto put together another solid season at the plate, hitting .276 with 22 home runs, an .820 OPS, a 129 OPS+, and 21 stolen bases.
He even has three Silver Slugger Awards to his name.
The 31-year-old is also a master at his craft behind the plate as well.
The veteran catcher has won two Gold Glove Awards over the course of his MLB career.
Needless to say, it’s easy to see why MLB Network chose him as the top catcher in all of baseball.
He certainly is in an elite class of catchers, but he stands out among the rest.
Realmuto hit a clutch home run in Game 1 of the World Series against the Houston Astros to help the Phillies complete a comeback after trailing 5-0.
Philadelphia ultimately fell short in the series, falling in six games.
But with one of the top catchers in baseball behind the plate, the future appears bright in the City of Brotherly Love.NEXT: J.T. Realmuto Tops An Elite List Of Catchers
