Giants' Curt Casali: Drives in both runs in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali went 1-for-4 with a pair of RBI in Saturday's 2-0 win over Atlanta.

The 32-year-old provided the only scoring play of the game, plating LaMonte Wade and Brandon Crawford with a four-inning single. Casali has posted a .214/.314/.359 slash line with five home runs, 26 RBI, 20 runs scored and 11 doubles in 221 plate appearances. He'll continue to play roughly twice a week as backup to Buster Posey.

Giants' Curt Casali: Filling in for resting Posey
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali will start at catcher and bat eighth Wednesday against the Rockies.

Casali should make for an appealing streaming option in season-long leagues with daily lineup moves, given that he'll have the benefit of hitting at high altitude in Colorado. Beyond Wednesday, however, Casali won't provide much fantasy value, given that he typically starts only once or twice per week while No. 1 catcher Buster Posey is healthy. Posey is merely getting some routine maintenance Wednesday with the Giants playing a day game after a night game.

Giants' Curt Casali: Passes concussion tests
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali (head) passed concussion tests and will be available off the bench Friday against Atlanta, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

Casali left Thursday's game against the Mets after a foul ball off the mask led to him experiencing dizziness. The backstop appears to feel better Friday, and with him clearing all concussion tests, he'll be an option off the bench. Starting catcher Buster Posey (knee) is set to return to the lineup after missing the previous two games.

Giants' Curt Casali: Experiencing dizziness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali was removed from Thursday's game against the Mets after experiencing dizziness while running the bases, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Casali took a foul ball off his mask and then later reported feeling dizzy after running from first to third on a single. There has been no official diagnosis to this point, though Casali will continue to be evaluated over the next few days.

Giants' Curt Casali: Suffers injury on bases
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali exited Thursday's game against Mets after picking up an injury running from first to third base, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

It's not clear exactly what the injury is, though presumably Casali tweaked something in his lower-body. If he is forced to miss extended time, the team would be thin at catcher as Buster Posey (knee) has also missed the last two games.

Giants' Curt Casali: Playing time still limited
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali has gone 6-for-26 (.231) with a home run and two doubles through nine games in August.

Casali sees a regular work pattern, typically starting behind the dish roughly once every three games. He went 0-for-3 Wednesday versus the Mets with Buster Posey sidelined by knee discomfort, although the latter had started four games in a row (once as the designated hitter in Oakland) and likely would have sat out that contest anyway. Should Posey need more time off, Casali could get a short-term bump in playing time, but he's hit to a mediocre .219/.321/.388 slash line with five homers, 23 RBI, 18 runs scored and 10 doubles in 185 plate appearances.

Giants' Curt Casali: Smacks fifth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a walk in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to Arizona.

The catcher accounted for San Francisco's lone run when he went deep in the fifth inning. Casali has gone 3-for-6 with a homer and a double in his last two games. The 32-year-old has five long balls, 21 RBI, 15 runs scored and a .221/.329/.404 slash line in 158 plate appearances. He's likely to start every third game or so as Buster Posey's backup.

Giants' Curt Casali: Starts in series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali will start at catcher and bat eighth in Sunday's game against the Pirates.

Casali will be checking back into the starting nine for the first time since Wednesday after Buster Posey's recent return from the injured list bumped Casali back to the No. 2 spot on the depth chart. Expect Casali to pick up about one or two starts per week the rest of the season while Posey is healthy.

July 18, 2021 12:56 PM
Giants' Curt Casali: Resting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Casali will cede catching duties to Chadwick Tromp in the series finale after he was behind the dish Friday and Saturday. With Buster Posey (thumb) considered day-to-day and likely to return from the injured list during the upcoming week, Casali's time as San Francisco's No. 1 catcher will soon come to an end.

July 12, 2021 09:56 PM
Giants' Curt Casali: On base three times, homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali went 1-for-2 with a three-run home run, two walks and a strikeout in a 3-1 win against the Nationals on Sunday.

Casali accounted for all three San Francisco runs with his second-inning shot to center off Nationals' starter Erick Fedde and later walked in both the third and sixth innings. The backstop has been performing admirably in the absence of Buster Posey and concludes the first half with a .220/.336/.404 slash line in 42 games. Moreover, his 11.6 BB% would be among the league leaders if Casali had enough at-bats to qualify.

Giants' Curt Casali: Tallies three hits in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run and a double in a 5-3 victory over Washington on Friday.

The Giants decided to put Buster Posey (thumb) on the 10-day injured list earlier in the day, giving Casali another chance to start. He came through with a big performance, finishing with his third three-hit game of the season. Casali should function as San Francisco's primary starter until Posey returns, especially since he is on a roll at the plate. Over his past five games, Casali has gone 7-for-14 with four doubles, two walks and two RBI.

Giants' Curt Casali: Blasts second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's 2-0 win over Oakland.

There was little offense in the battle between Bay Area teams, so Casali's seventh-inning solo homer loomed large. The long ball was just his second this season and Casali struggled to a .100 average through his first 70 at-bats, but he has stepped things up considerably of late, batting .500 (8-for-16) with both his homers and six RBI over his past six contests.

June 18, 2021 12:32 PM
Giants' Curt Casali: Drives in four
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali went 3-for-5 with a home run, a triple, four RBI and two runs scored Thursday against Arizona.

Casali finished just a double shy of the cycle to record his third multi-RBI game of the season. The highlight of his performance came in the second inning, when he took Zac Gallen deep for his first home run of the season. He drove in a run on each of his other two hits and now has 10 RBI on the campaign. Casali has yet to get on track with the bat across 93 plate appearances, as he's hitting just .165/.290/.241.

Giants' Curt Casali: Three-hit effort Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali went 3-for-4 in Monday's 5-2 win over Arizona.

All three of Casali's hits were singles, and this was his first multi-hit effort of the season. The 32-year-old has seen roughly one-third of the playing time when healthy as the backup to Buster Posey. Casali is slashing just .135/.264/.149 with a double, six RBI and six runs scored across 87 plate appearances.

June 12, 2021 05:16 PM
Giants' Curt Casali: Activated for nightcap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali (wrist) was activated off the injured list Saturday and is expected to start the nightcap of the doubleheader against the Nationals, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Casali wound up missing slightly more than the minimum 10 days with a left wrist strain. He'll resume his role as Buster Posey's backup, with Chadwick Tromp heading to Triple-A.

June 10, 2021 04:04 PM
Giants' Curt Casali: Trending toward return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali (wrist) could be reinstated from the 10-day injured list as early as Saturday or Sunday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Casali has been sidelined since June 1 due to a left wrist strain, but the issue wasn't considered particularly serious. Manager Gabe Kapler is hopeful that the catcher will be able to return to the active roster after spending just over the minimum amount of time on the injured list.

June 2, 2021 01:36 PM
Giants' Curt Casali: Heads to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a left wrist strain, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

The catcher isn't expected to miss much time (if any) beyond the minimum 10 days. Though a solid defensive asset, Casali has struggled considerably at the plate with a .104 average this season and may benefit from some time off. Chadwick Tromp was recalled to fill Casali's roster spot for the time being.

May 23, 2021 02:40 PM
Giants' Curt Casali: Starts for resting Posey
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali will start at catcher and bat seventh Sunday against the Dodgers, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Casali will get his third turn behind the plate in less than a week with Buster Posey getting Sunday off for maintenance purposes. For the season, Casali is slashing .107/.265/.125 across 68 plate appearances, so he likely won't be in store for an uptick in playing time while Posey remains healthy.

April 24, 2021 01:24 PM
Giants' Curt Casali: Plates two runs in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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.

April 7, 2021 01:12 PM
Giants' Curt Casali: Starting in day game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali will start at catcher and bat seventh in Wednesday's game against the Padres, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

He'll pick up his second start of the season while top catcher Buster Posey rests for the day game after a night game. Casali will likely be in store for around two starts per week throughout the season so long as Posey is healthy.
