RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Not typically regarded as a major offensive threat, Casali surpised many with his productivity and power in 2015. In a small sample size of 113 plate appearances, the backstop hit 10 home runs and posted an .898 OPS despite a paltry .238 batting average. This was a stark contrast to the .674 OPS he posted with Triple-A Durham, but is still promising considering the lack of strong-hitting catchers the Rays have recently had. The 26-year-old has plenty of competition at catcher for the Rays, including Hank Conger, Rene Rivera and Justin O'Conner, but if he can show that his production wasn't a fluke, Casali could see more time with the big club in 2016.

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.
