Fantasy Impact:

Raleigh told the media he had surgery to repair a broken thumb and torn ligaments in his catching hand. After scuffling in his MLB debut in the 2021 season, Raleigh broke out with 27 home runs in 2022 to lead all catchers in that department. The good news is it's also been reported he caught a bullpen session and said he's feeling great. Raleigh's underlying metrics backed up his prodigious power output from a season ago as he should rack up plenty more long balls - and perhaps more playing time - in 2023.
