26-Year-Old CatcherC
Oakland Athletics
2024 Fantasy Outlook
Langeliers opened the season as the Athletics primary catcher. He gathered a taste of the majors down the stretch in 2022 but struggled making contact. In his first full season, Langeliers lowered his strikeout rate to a still elevated 29.2 percent while hitting the ball with more authority. However, as a fly ball hitter in the cavernous Coliseum, Langeliers' BABIP was well below average, but his 22 homers was fifth most among catcher-eligible hitters and his 63 RBI tied for 12th highest. Langeliers is still a work in progress behind the plate as his -13 defensive runs saved was the third worst in the league and he graded as one of the poorest pitch framers. Langeliers' 31 percent success rate catching base stealers was one of the best marks in the league. Langeliers will share catching duties with Tyler Soderstrom, with Langeliers likely to get the heavier workload. The volume will generate mixed league worthy counting stats, but Langeliers is a batting average liability. Read Past Outlooks

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Finds power stroke
COakland Athletics
August 25, 2023
Langeliers has gone 10-for-34 with three walks, a double, four home runs and seven RBI in his past 10 games.
ANALYSIS
The backstop has found his offense of late, especially over his last four games with four long balls. The 25-year-old still has an underwhelming .208/.272/.391 slash line and 29.1 percent strikeout rate for the season, but a strong finish to the campaign could flip the narrative heading into 2024.
See All MLB Rumors
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Langeliers was acquired by Oakland from Atlanta in March 2022 and made his MLB debut in August, and he had a .218/.261/.430 slash line with six home runs in 40 games. The 25-year-old split his playing time between catcher and designated hitter, but he won't be serving as the primary backstop as long as Sean Murphy remains with the A's. Langeliers showcased his power in his first taste of the big leagues, but he also had a problematic 34.6 percent strikeout rate. He'll need to improve in order to retain his spot in Oakland's lineup next season, but Langeliers should at least enter spring training with an inside track to a regular role after a solid showing last season.
