  • Athletics' Shea Langeliers: Hits double in debut

    Langeliers went 1-for-4 with a double, a run scored and three strikeouts in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Athletics.

    Langeliers was able to get a few milestones checked off in his big-league debut, including his first hit and first run. Despite three strikeouts Tuesday, the 24-year-old shouldn't struggle in a major way with contact -- he struck out at a 21.9 percent clip while slashing .283/.366/.510 with 19 home runs, 56 RBI, 62 runs scored and five stolen bases with Triple-A Las Vegas prior to his call-up. The catching prospect is a solid defender and should get a long audition for an everyday role, sharing time with current No. 1 catcher Sean Murphy behind the dish and at designated hitter for the remainder of the season.

  • Athletics' Shea Langeliers: Arrives in big leagues

    The Athletics selected Langeliers' contract from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday.

    Just one week ago, general manager David Forst suggested that Langeliers was on track to receive a promotion to the big leagues before season's end, and now Oakland has made the move official. Regarded as a solid defender behind the plate, Langeliers should be part of a timeshare at catcher and designated hitter with Sean Murphy that will allow both players to handle near-everyday roles. Prior to getting promoted, Langeliers was in the midst of a big offensive season at Las Vegas, slashing .283/.366/.510 with 19 home runs and five stolen bases across 402 plate appearances. The 24-year-old looks worthy of a flier in just about any league, even in shallower formats that start just one catcher.

  • Athletics' Shea Langeliers: Should get late-season promotion

    Athletics general manager David Forst said Monday that he expects Langeliers to receive a promotion from Triple-A Las Vegas before the end of the season, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Since Oakland will already have to add Langeliers to its 40-man roster this offseason to protect him from the Rule 5 draft, the organization appears motivated to at least give him a late-season look in the majors to see if he's ready to take over the No. 1 catcher's role from Sean Murphy, who could be traded this winter as he heads into his first year of arbitration. At least at the plate, Langeliers looks deserving of a stiffer test, as he's slashing .281/.362/.513 with 38 extra-base hits and five stolen bases while maintaining a 22.3 percent strikeout rate across 381 plate appearances for Las Vegas. Langeliers has also drawn favorable reviews for his work defensively, which should help his case for playing regularly even if he gets off to a slow start with the bat to begin his big-league career. Forst didn't specify when Langeliers' call-up might come, but the 24-year-old at least makes for an appealing pickup for fantasy managers in deeper leagues who can afford a luxury stash.

  • Athletics' Shea Langeliers: Power stroke missing in action

    Langeliers is batting .270/.354/.506 with 11 homers for Triple-A Las Vegas, but he hasn't gone yard in the last month.

    His last homer came back on May 7, and Langeliers has hit only .221/.282/.273 in the interim. It's bad timing for the 24-year-old backstop, as Sean Murphy has struggled at the dish for Oakland (.636 OPS) and backup Christian Bethancourt has been even worse (.605 OPS). The door is open for Langeliers to force his way up to the big leagues if he can rediscover his power stroke soon. He put up an eyebrow-raising .309/.407/.691 batting line through his first 26 games this season before hitting the skids.

  • Athletics' Shea Langeliers: Reassigned to minor-league camp

    Langeliers was reassigned to minor-league camp Thursday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Langeliers was acquired from Atlanta by Oakland as part of the return for Matt Olson mid-March. He closed the 2021 season at Triple-A, though it's not particularly surprising that he will start the new campaign in the minors as Sean Murphy will retain the starting role behind the dish, and the Athletics also recently signed Stephen Vogt. Despite some depth at the position, Langeliers could still be in line for his big-league debut at some point in 2022.

  • Braves' Shea Langeliers: Shipped to Oakland

    Langeliers was traded from Atlanta to Oakland along with Cristian Pache, Ryan Cusick and Joey Estes in exchange for Matt Olson on Monday, Jeff Passan of reports.

    Langeliers is a really strong catching prospect across the board, projecting for above-average game power and above-average defense behind the plate. He hit .258/.338/.498 with 22 home runs, a 26.2 K% and a 9.7 BB% in 370 plate appearances at Double-A as a 23-year-old. Langeliers may spend a good chunk of the season at Triple-A, but he could be expedited to the majors if Sean Murphy gets injured or traded.

  • Braves' Shea Langeliers: Moves up to Triple-A

    Atlanta promoted Langeliers from Double-A Mississippi to Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    After batting .258 with 22 home runs and 52 RBI in 92 games to help lead Mississippi to a Double-A South title, Langeliers will just to the minors' highest level for Gwinnett's final five games of the campaign. The 23-year-old will likely head into 2022 as Gwinnett's No. 1 backstop, and he could be a candidate for his first promotion to the big leagues later in the summer.
