I think Alex Trevino should be there. .979 career fielding percentage at catcher for a guy who couldn't hit and couldn't throw out runners by his 3rd or 4th year in the majors (yet he played for 13 seasons. The guy had one error for almost every 4 assists as a catcher (89 errors /398 assists).
By comparison, Johnny Bench in 17 seasons 97 errors / 850 assists.
