Rays | Curt Casali starting again

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 07:38:24 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C Curt Casali is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Baltimore Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen Sunday, July 26.

Fantasy Tip: Casali ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) could return sneaky value for FantasyScore players Sunday. He carries a contest-minimum salary, and each of his last five hits have gone for extra bases. Keep expectations in check, though, as he boasts a .225/.289/.525 slash line over only 45 plate appearances this season.

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 12:10:48 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C Curt Casali will bat ninth against Baltimore Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez Saturday, July 25. C Rene Rivera is getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Casali ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 3-for-19 this month with a home run and three RBIs and is only hitting .125 in 16 at-bats at Tropicana Field. Unless you desperately need FantasyScore salary cap relief, avoid using him.

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 07:40:25 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C Rene Rivera is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Saturday, July 18. C Curt Casali will start at catcher and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Rivera ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and will be back in the lineup in the next game or two. Casali ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has not done a lot at the plate in his limited playing time this season and is not a great option on FantasyScore.

Rays | Rene Rivera sitting out vs. Astros

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 08:32:50 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C Rene Rivera is not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 12. C Curt Casali is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Rivera ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) enters the All-Star break with three runs, a home run run, seven RBI and a .421/.429/.632 slash line over his past six games. It is the best stretch of his otherwise awful season. Perhaps, he'll have a better second half, but Rivera shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a low-end catcher in AL-only, cavernous mixed and two-catcher formats. Casali ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be viewed as a desperation source of cap relief by FantasyScore players Sunday, as has just 116 career plate appearances and a .561 OPS to show for them.

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 21:55:12 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C Curt Casali went 3-for-3 with a walk and his first-career home run Wednesday, June 17, against the Washington Nationals.

Fantasy Tip: Casali ($1,600; or 3.2% of cap) is still behind Rene Rivera ($2,000; or 4.0% of cap) on the depth chart, but he can be a decent salary saver for FantasyScore players when he makes an occasional start.

Fantasy Tip: Rivera ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Casali ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has gone hitless in his only three at-bats this season and should not be a starting option on FantasyScore.

Rays | Curt Casali playing Saturday

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 13:00:07 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C Curt Casali is starting behind the plate against the Chicago White Sox Saturday, June 13.

Fantasy Tip: Casali ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is starting because the team is playing a day game following a night game. He is making his first appearance of the season and is a career .167 hitter, so he should be avoided in FantasyScore.
