The Colorado Rockies got positive production from almost every position on the field in 2018, with two notable exceptions: catcher and first base. Right now, first base is occupied by the seemingly immovable Ian Desmond, which makes catcher one of the most logical places the Rockies could seek to upgrade for 2019.
Last year, Colorado Rockies catchers Chris Iannetta, Tony Wolters, Tom Murphy, and Drew Butera compiled a dismal -0.3 WAR combined. Iannetta logged the most innings, however he managed to hit only .224/.345/.385 over 360 at-bats. He also nailed only eight of 48 stolen base attempts against him for a downright miserable 14%.
As a group, Rockies catchers caught only 21% of would-be base stealers, a mark that puts them behind every other team save the Rangers and Mets. They also rated well below league average in passed balls, fielding percentage, double plays, and UZR.
Clearly there is some room for improvement here. However, catcher is notorious for being one of the most difficult places on the diamond to find quality help. That said, there are some options out there for the Rox that may be able to help in 2019.
