Elias Catchers Updated

In the American League, Jason Varitek remains the only Type A free agent. Ivan Rodriguez has fallen further behind and looks more likely to be a type B. Pudge is the only Type B free agent right now, as Gregg Zaun has lost his status. Miguel Olivo, Rod Barajas, Zaun, and Mike Redmond all are within striking distance of Type B status.

In the National League, Jason Kendell and Paul Lo Duca remain as the only Type B free agents. Lo Duca has lost some ground and could lose his status. Among those close to Type B status, Javier Valentin may not qualify at catcher depending on how national league pinch hitters are treated. Also, it shows how many Astros fans have read this thread as nobody noticed that Brad Ausmus was missing from the last rankings. Somehow, he's right on the brink of Type B status, but still seems to be a long shot.

Updating the firstbasemen and outfielders will be next, either Monday or Wednesday depending on my schedule.
