2015

Letís be frank Ė the Rays care more about how catchers handle the pitching staff and frame pitches than they do offensive abilities at the plate. They havenít developed an offensive catcher since Toby Hall and Casali is not going to end that trend. The organization likes how he works behind the plate, but his bat has been exposed since he got to Triple-A. With the offseason acquisition of Rene Rivera, Casali will go to Durham and split playing time with bigger prospect Justin OíConner who has more offensive upside. Even in deep, two-catcher AL-only leagues, Casali is unlikely to offer a useful contribution.
