Recently, MLB Now, a show on MLB Network has been counting down the top-10 players at each position.
Yesterday, they counted down the top starting pitchers.
Tonight, the top-10 catchers in all of baseball will be revealed.
But while we wait, we’ve got a list made by the fans to look at.
The fans vote on these topics before the official results are revealed.
That will come tonight, which means now is a great time to dive into the fans’ list to see who they have at the top.
Philadelphia Phillies backstop J.T. Realmuto is clearly popular among fans, as he graces the top of the list.

For his career, Realmuto owns a WAR of 29.7, an average of .275, 134 career home runs, and a .788 OPS.
Last season, he hit .276 with 22 home runs and an .820 OPS, while posting a WAR of 6.5.
He even has three Silver Slugger Awards and is a three-time All-Star.
But it’s not just on the offensive side where the 31-year-old dominates.
The star catcher has also won two Gold Gloves.
So naturally, it’s easy to see why Realmuto is at the top.
Behind him on the list are catchers such as Adley Rutschman, Willson Contreras, Salvador Perez, Cal Raleigh, Will Smith, Jose Trevino, Alejandro Kirk, Sean Murphy, and Travis d’Arnaud.
These are of course great catchers who deserve credit for their accomplishments.
But as the fans see it, Realmuto should come out on top when the results are revealed, which they will be tonight on MLB Now.
We’ll see if they agree with the fans’ take on the situation.NEXT: Craig Kimbrel Owns A Favorable Mark In Philadelphia
