2024 Fantasy Outlook
Bailey slashed an uninspiring .225/.342/.419 at the High-A level in 2022 and entered the 2023 campaign behind Joey Bart and Roberto Perez, among others, on the Giants' catching depth chart. Needless to say, he didn't really seem to be on the fantasy radar heading into last season. As it turned out, he was promoted before the end of May and made a terrific first impression in batting .322/.347/.557 with five homers over his first 33 major-league contests. Although he continued to provide excellent defense, Bailey crashed hard at the plate the rest of the way with a .503 OPS and 29.1 percent strikeout rate from July on. A 10 percent barrel rate was nice to see, but Bailey's strikeout and walk rates were both in the 17th percentile and the switch-hitter sported just a .557 OPS against righties. His defense should provide job security, but Bailey should be reserved only for two-catcher leagues in fantasy. Read Past Outlooks

Four hits in loss
CSan Francisco Giants
June 21, 2024
Bailey went 4-for-5 in Thursday's 6-5 loss to the Cardinals.
ANALYSIS
Bailey is 14-for-37 (.378) over his last 10 games, and the lone contest in that span in which he failed to log a hit was one where he appeared off the bench. While the catcher is making consistent contact, it hasn't been particularly powerful -- he has just two extra-base hits in that span. Overall, he's at a .299/.367/.439 slash line with five homers, two stolen bases, 23 RBI, 19 runs scored and eight doubles through 50 contests.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Everyday role won't change
CSan Francisco Giants
September 5, 2023
Manager Gabe Kapler said the Giants plan to start Bailey "as much as he's physically capable of playing" over the final month of the season, reports Evan Webeck of the San Jose Mercury News.
ANALYSIS
The 24-year-old has served as San Francisco's primary backstop since making his MLB debut in May, and he'll continue to be leaned on heavily down the stretch as the Giants push for a playoff spot, though he's not starting Tuesday versus the Cubs. Bailey's .696 OPS and 27.7 strikeout rate are nothing special at first sight, but a 92 wRC+ is impressive from a rookie catcher, especially since he's a plus defender behind the plate. Blake Sabol will continue to see occasional starts over the next few weeks, but it's clear Bailey will be catching as much as possible.
