Cal Raleigh

24-Year-Old CatcherC
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Raleigh was a third-round draft pick by Seattle in the 2018 draft out of Florida State. He had a solid debut in the rookie leagues, hitting .288/.367/.534 for short-season Everett, but took off with power in 2019, combining for 29 homers while playing in the California and Texas leagues. The scouting reports always said he could hit for power from either side of the plate, and there is nothing long-term in the way preventing Raleigh from being a fantasy factor in Seattle as early as the 2022 season. In keeper leagues, you will want to get ahead of the curve for a catcher like this with above-average potential at a position where such players are tough to find most years. It would be a surprise to see Raleigh in the big leagues in 2021 for anything more than a cup of coffee. Read Past Outlooks
