The Los Angeles Angels have brought the term “underachieved” to a whole new meaning halfway through the 2016 season. Although there is no “I” in “team”, many of the blame can be thrown at the catching position.

In the games played thus far, the Angels have seen 3 different players catch for them on a regular basis, ultimately having them windup with a 37-52 record at the break and finding themselves at the bottom of the AL West out by 16.5 games.

In this article we’ll focus on the guys behind the dish: Carlos PerezJett Bandy, and Geovany Soto.

It was a hard process to come up with a “grade” for each player given the time each individual has spent actually on the field. But, read on to see what they scored on my report card and my explanation’s behind them.
