      Giants' Curt Casali: Plates two runs in win

      Curt Casali went 1-for-3 with two RBI in Thursday's win over the Marlins.He made the most of his lone knock of the contest, plating Evan Longoria and Darin Ruf to make it a 3-0 game for the San Francisco Giants in the first inning, although Casali's bat went silent the rest of the way. He has recorded just three hits in 24 at-bats this season, and he can't be counted on to produce offensively on a consistent basis.

      Giants' Curt Casali: Signs big-league deal with Giants

      Curt Casali signed a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the San Francisco Giants on Monday.While the Giants aren't paying Casali all that much, the major-league contract implies that they see him as part of the active roster in 2021. He deserves at least a backup spot given his respectable .230/.316/.413 slash line in parts of seven seasons at the highest level. That leaves the Giants' catcher depth chart rather full, however, as Buster Posey will be returning to action after opting out of the 2020 season and the highly-rated Joey Bart has already arrived, appearing in 33 games in Posey's absence last season. The signing of Casali potentially indicates that the Giants intend to give Bart more seasoning in the minors to start the year.

      Curt Casali: Non-tendered by Reds

      Curt Casali was non-tendered by the Reds on Wednesday.Casali logged a respectable .866 OPS in 93 plate appearances last year, working primarily as a backup. He should be able to catch on elsewhere in a similar capacity, but he may need to settle for a pay cut.

      Reds' Curt Casali: Enters offseason healthy

      Curt Casali (wrist) was used off the bench in Game 2 of last week's series-clinching loss to the Braves, catching one inning and logging no plate appearances.Casali started behind the dish in Game 1 of the series, but he exited in the sixth inning of a 1-0 loss in 13 innings while he battled a sore wrist. While he ceded his spot in the lineup to Tucker Barnhart in Game 2, Casali's entry into the game as a substitute suggests he'll head into the winter healthy. Unless the Cincinnati Reds feel confident that top catching prospect Tyler Stephenson is ready for a full-time assignment in the majors in 2021, Casali will likely reprise his role as a part-timer alongside Barnhart next season.

      Reds' Curt Casali: Gets second start of series

      Curt Casali will start at catcher and will bat ninth Wednesday against the Pirates.He'll be behind the dish for the second time in the series while top backstop Tucker Barnhart rests. Barnhart's greater familiarity with the Cincinnati pitching staff and his ability to control the run game may be enough to maintain his spot atop the depth chart, but if the 24-26 Cincinnati Reds fade from the playoff race during the final week of the season, manager David Bell could hand more starts to Casali or Tyler Stephenson.
