Curtis Michael Casali Bio Info

Selected by the Detroit Tigers in the 10th round of the 2011 June Draft...signed by Harold Zonder. 2: Acquired by the Tampa Bay Rays from Detroit in exchange for LH Kyle Lobstein, March 25, 2013

2015

Rookie backstop enjoyed a breakout season and took over the starting catcher role for a month-long period before suffering a left hamstring strain on a home run trot Aug 25 vs. MIN, sidelining him for the last 37 games...it was his second consecutive season to end in injury...played in 38 games, 33 starts (32-C, 1-DH). Believed to be the first major leaguer since Luke Scott with the Orioles in 2010 to be injured on a home run trot...Scott also suffered a pulled hamstring. Became just the fourth catcher in Rays history to hit at least 10 HR in a season and only the second in the last 12 seasons, joining Kelly Shoppach (11 in 2011)...hit his 10th home run in his 68th career game...only 13 AL catchers all-time reached 10 homers as fast. From the time of his June 13 call up from Triple-A Durham until his injury (Aug 25), led the Rays with 10 HR...ranked 3rd among major league catchers in homers during this span, behind ARI Welington Castillo (14) and NYY Brian McCann (13)...despite missing the last 37 games, his 9 HR after the All-Star break tied for 4th most among major league catchers...since 2000, only three other rookie catchers hit as many homers after the break: TOR J.P. Arencibia (11 in 2011), SF Buster Posey (11 in 2010) and KC John Buck (12 in 2004). Slugged 10 HR in 101 AB, after 0 HR in 72 AB in 2014...among players with at least 100 AB, his 10.1 AB/HR ranked 1st in the majors ahead of MIA Giancarlo Stanton (10.3) and was the best ratio of any AL player since CWS Frank Thomas in 2005 (8.8, 12-HR, 105-AB)...it was the best ratio ever by a catcher (min. 100 AB), ahead of ATL Javy Lopez in 2003 (10.6, 43-HR, 457-AB).Two-thirds of his hits went for extra bases (24-H, 6-2B, 10-HR). Hit 2 HR in back-to-back games July 27-28 vs. DET...according to the Elias Sports Bureau, became the first rookie catcher in major league history with multiple homers in back-to-back team games...was the first catcher to do it since TEX Mike Napoli (Sep 27-28, 2011 at LAA)...joined Greg Vaughn (May 18-19, 2002 at BAL) as the only Rays to do it. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, became the fourth player to homer twice in back-to-back games within the first 50 games of his career, and first since his former Vanderbilt teammate PIT Pedro Alvarez (July 20-21, 2010 vs. MIL)...the others were BOS George Scott (May 4-6, 1966 at DET/MIN) and CWS Zeke Bonura (May 19-20, 1934 vs. PHA/BOS). Prior to his back-to-back 2-HR games, only four times in Rays history had a Rays catcher hit 2 HR in a game-and never by a rookie catcher.His second homer on July 27 vs. DET is believed to be just the second ball to deflect off the B-ring catwalk for a home run, joining CWS Frank Thomas, who did it in the fifth game ever played at Tropicana Field, April 4, 1998...Thomas' blast later prompted a change in the ground rules. Both his homers on July 28 vs. DET were off fellow Vandy alumnus David Price, making him just the sixth player with a multi-HR game off Price...he joined LAA Albert Pujols, NYY Mark Teixeira (Sep 28, 2011-"Game 162"), BAL Mark Reynolds, TOR Jose Bautista and BOS Victor Martinez. In addition, recorded 3 hits in each of his 2-HR games, the first rookie with at least 2 HR and 3 hits in consecutive games since OAK Troy Neel in July 8-9, 1993 vs. BOS. His 4 HR in that series tied the club record for a 3-game series, joining Carlos Peña (June 8-10, 2010 vs. TOR), Greg Vaughn (May 17-19, 2002 at BAL) and Fred McGriff (May 4-6, 1999 vs. KC)…His 6 HR in July were the most by a Rays catcher in a single month, passing John Flaherty (5, May 1999)...J.P. Arencibia tied that record with 6 HR in September...he was the first rookie catcher with 6 HR in July since SF Buster Posey in 2010 (7)...tied HOU Preston Tucker for the most HR among major league rookies in July, and tied Jonny Gomes' team mark (2005) for most by a Rays rookie in July…On June 17 at WAS, hit his first career homer off Jordan Zimmermann, recorded 3 hits and reached base 4 times-all while catching a 2-hit shutout in a 5-0 win...became the first Ray to reach 4 times while catching a shutout since Michel Hernandez on April 30, 2009 vs. BOS-a 13-0 win and combined 1-hitter by Matt Garza and Grant Balfour…On July 18 at TOR, hit a game-winning, 8th-inning solo homer off Ryan Tepera, making him the first rookie catcher in club history with a go-ahead homer in the 8th inning or later…Threw out 6 of 25 (24.0 pct.) attempted base stealers...yielded 4 SB on June 24 vs. TOR, then threw out 6 of 21 (28.6 pct.) after that.

2014
