Reds catcher Curt Casali is not starting Monday versus the Royals.
Casali went 1-for-4 with a run scored in Sunday's series finale against the Cardinals but will give way to Luke Maile on Monday evening against the Royals. The veteran backstop has struggled mightily this season, hitting just .172 without a home run alongside a .496 OPS across 77 trips to the plate.
Curt Casali signed a one-year, $2.5 million deal with the Cincinnati Reds with a mutual option for 2024.
Casali spent time with the Giants and Mariners last season but only appeared in 57 games. He posted a .203 batting average with five home runs. The 34-year-old will be back up to Tyler Stephenson.
The Seattle Mariners activated Curt Casali from the injured list Thursday.
Casali was acquired by the Mariners at the trade deadline. He will be the backup catcher for Seattle behind Cal Raleigh as Luis Torrens was designated for assignment.
Curt Casali has been traded to the Seattle Mariners for righthanded prospect Michael Stryffeler.
With this trade, Seattle is likely adding depth to a thin position, as Casali and Curt Raleigh will probably split time behind the plate. Casali is slashing .231/.325/.370 with four homers and 14 RBIs in 41 games this season.
Curt Casali went 1-for-2 with an RBI single in Thursday's 7-6 loss to the Braves.
Casali was able to drive in his 14th run of the season on Thursday before being pinch hit for later in the game. The catcher now holds a .237 batting average with an OPS of .713 in 96 at-bats this season. He is not a fantasy option, as he operating in a platoon at the moment.
