...on my 2 catcher AL only league team?

Here’s the deal, Jonathan Lucroy was recently traded from the Texas Rangers to the Colorado Rockies in a deal that will almost certainly raise the struggling catcher’s value. The problem is the Rockies play in the National League and I own Lucroy in an American League only fantasy league. I drafted Lucroy and have been making due with a combo of Austin Romine (while Gary Sanchez was hurt) and James McCann (who has actually been better than Lucroy this year) at my 2nd catcher spot. Now I need to replace Lucroy! This is a 4 x 4 roto league meaning I need BA HR RBI and SB at offense.

Here are my options:

Drew Butera, Royals - 7 for 19 with 2 RBI over past 14 days 0% owned, plays behind Salvador Perez

Austin Romine, Yankees - 3 for 13 with 2 RBI over past 14 days 1% owned, plays behind Gary Sanchez

Roberto Perez, Indians - 4 for 19 with 1 RBI over past 14 days 0% owned, plays behind Yan Gomes

Kevan Smith, White Sox - 3 for 18 with 0 RBI over past 14 days 1% owned

Brett Nicholas, Rangers - 0 for 1 all season 0% owned, the Rangers new backup

Yeah, it’s ugly! Please vote below on who I should pick up and leave comments with any reasoning or condolences!
