C'mon he has to hit higher than that. Plus be an asset behind the plate. (like move properly for balls in the dirt)
For catchers absolutely as long as they can hit home runs and draw walks.

Rutherford with home run number five. He will finish with double digit home runs, and should be on every top list.

If he’s getting on base at .350+ and hitting 20+ HR, then yes, .250 is acceptable for a catcher.

Outside of Collins, what is the rest of your future team hitting?

What is this, 1953? It's pretty well understood that there is more to the game than having a high batting average. A .380 OBP would have been the fourth best among catchers in baseball last year (behind Barnes, Posey, and Avila) and 30 HR would have been second (behind Sanchez). Those are all-star numbers.

If he has to move to 1B, on the other hand... well they're still good numbers but not all-star level.

Finally a good start for Fulmer at AAA. 7 innings pitched, 11 Ks, 7 hits and 3 runs allowed. The most surprising stat is he only walked 1 batter.

When Fulmer starts showing consistency then we'll have something.

MLB Pipeline has refreshed their Top 100 prospect list. 2018 draftees have not yet been incorporated. Notably:

Juan Soto leaps into the #3 spot, which pushes Eloy one spot down, to #4.

Kopech drops a couple spots to #12.

Robert drops a couple spots to #26.

Cease is now the #4 prospect in the organization, at #43 overall.

Hansen drops a couple spots to #49.

Dunning keeps climbing, to #56.

Rutherford remains in the back end of the Top 100, at #85.

Collins deservedly re-enters the Top 100, at #99.

Given that no draftees are ranked, I’d expect Collins to fall back out of the Top 100 once they are, unless further updates to incumbent prospect rankings are considered. But if Collins falls back, we still have 8 in the Top 100 because Madrigal will slot somewhere into the middle of this list. Injuries didn’t cost anyone their prospect stock, just development time.
