C - CIN
Curt Casali went 2-for-5 with a home run, three RBI, and a run scored Tuesday against the Marlins.
Casali's homer, his seventh, tied the game at three in the fourth. He then laced a two-run single in the fifth to help the Reds build their lead. He's batting .259 in a primarily backup role for the Reds.
Curt Casali left Monday night's game with knee soreness. Before departing, he went 1-for-3 with a solo home run.
Casali downplayed the severity of this injury, stating that he could have stayed in the game if he were needed. He's considered day-to-day until more is known about the injury.
Curt Casali went 2-for-5 with a home run, three RBI, and another run scored in Saturday's win over the Rockies.
Casali has now knocked two hits in both of his first two games in the weekend series at Colorado. He may get a breather Sunday, but he's entrenched as the Reds' starting catcher with Tucker Barnhart (oblique) not believed to be close to returning.
Curt Casali went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a walk in the Reds' 4-3 loss to the Rangers on Saturday.
Casali has homered twice over his last three games, and seems to be stealing playing time from the scuffling Tucker Barnhart. He is worth a look in NL-only and two-catcher leagues, as Casali has proven capable with the stick. He's hitting .294 with a .798 OPS over the last three seasons, though it's just a combined 228 PA.
Curt Casali went 3-for-4 with a three-run homer, a double, and four RBI in the Reds' 9-3 win over the Nationals on Friday.
Casali had an offensive explosion tonight, and now has a .298/.355/.452 triple slash on the year. His .371 BABIP will undoubtedly drop, but his 35% line drive rate suggests his batting average is at least somewhat sustainable. He's still the backup in Cincinnati, but with Tucker Barnhart's struggles Casali could push for more playing time. He's someone to watch in NL-only or two-catcher leagues.
