21-Year-Old OutfielderOF
Chicago Cubs
2024 Fantasy Outlook
One of the premier power hitters in the minors, particularly from an exit velocity standpoint, Caissie has never had a strikeout rate below 28.6 percent and has a 30 percent strikeout rate for his career. He took a small step forward with a 27.1 percent strikeout rate in the second half last year, which coincides with the pre-tacked balls being removed from the Southern League. Even so, strikeouts will inevitably be a big part of Caissie's game. Fortunately, he has always walked at an 11 percent clip or higher, so he has the requisite approach to be a three-true-outcomes right fielder. Caissie has a plus arm and runs well for a 6-foot-3 slugger. A left-handed hitter, Caissie had a .755 OPS and 32 percent strikeout rate against lefties in 2023 and a .690 OPS against lefties in 2022, so it's possible he will get a platoon partner. It's also not a given that he will make enough contact against righties in the majors to handle the strong side of a platoon. Read Past Outlooks

March 9, 2024
Caissie was reassigned to minor-league camp by the Cubs on Friday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.
ANALYSIS
Caissie received an invitation to big-league camp, but this was always the expected outcome, as the 21-year-old has yet to appear above Double-A. He was great at that level last season, recording 22 home runs and a .917 OPS across 120 games. If Caissie continues to make noise in the minors this year, his MLB debut might not be that far away.
