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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Giants' Curt Casali: Slated to start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali (hand) is expected to start Friday's spring game against the Padres, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Casali underwent hamate surgery in December, but he played catch and hit without pain to begin spring training. He'll make his Cactus League debut Friday, batting third while playing catcher. Barring any setbacks, the veteran backstop should have plenty of time to prepare for Opening Day.

Giants' Curt Casali: Underwent offseason surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali revealed Saturday that he underwent hamate surgery in December, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Casali signed a major-league contract with the Giants in January, but the catcher revealed Saturday that he had surgery during the offseason. However, the 32-year-old has been playing catch and hitting without pain to begin spring training. While he could face some limitations during camp, Casali was optimistic that he'll be ready for Opening Day.

Giants' Curt Casali: Signs big-league deal with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali signed a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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: Battling sore wrist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali is battling a sore wrist but is available off the bench Thursday for Game 2 of the Wild Card Round against Atlanta, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Casali played the first six innings in Game 1 on Wednesday, which proved to be slightly less than half of the 13-inning contest. Tucker Barnhart starts behind the plate in Game 2.

Reds' Curt Casali: Hits sixth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's 6-3 win over Milwaukee.

Casali extended Cincinnati's lead to 3-1 with his long ball off Drew Rasmussen in the eighth. The backstop has hit .224/.373/.522 to go along with six homers and eight RBI while backing up Tucker Barnhart this season.

Reds' Curt Casali: Gets second start of series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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.

Reds' Curt Casali: Slugs homer in nightcap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a walk in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cubs.

Casali sat out the first game of the twin bill but started behind the plate and hit ninth in Game 2. He put the Reds ahead with a solo shot to left field in the third inning. Casali is slashing .205/.352/.568 with five homers but only six RBI this season.

Reds' Curt Casali: Hits fourth long ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Brewers.

Casali got the Reds on the board with his homer off Brett Anderson in the sixth. The backstop is hitting .179/.319/.513 while handling the short side of a catching platoon with Tucker Barnhart.

August 19, 2020 11:08 PM
Reds' Curt Casali: Pops third homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a hit-by-pitch in a 5-0 win over the Royals in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Casali went deep in the sixth inning off Royals reliever Gabe Speier to produce the Reds' final run of the contest. The long ball was Casali's third of the year to go with three RBI and five runs scored across 40 plate appearances. Expect the 31-year-old to see little playing time as Tucker Barnhart makes most of the starts at catcher.

Reds' Curt Casali: Benched in third straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali is out of the lineup for the first game of Sunday's doubleheader with the Tigers.

After starting behind the dish in each of the Reds' first five games, Casali has predictably taken a back seat since Tucker Barnhart was activated from the paternity list Tuesday. Though Casali will be on the bench for a third straight contest, he'll likely catch in the second game of the doubleheader later in the day.
