Rays C Curt Casali loses backup catcher spot to Bobby Wilson


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2015) Rays rookie catcher Curt Casali lost the backup catcher spot to Bobby Wilson, according to tbo.com.

Rays manager Kevin Cash stated that it was a tough call between Wilson and Casali.

“There was a lot that went to it,” Cash said. “Rarely do you go through a season without the use of three catchers. We’re going to need Curt at some point. We’re lucky to have him. We view him as a big league catcher. With the way things out this spring, he did everything he could to make this team, but where we are today, moving forward, what we can do best for the organization right now is to have Bobby with us and have some coverage in Curt.”

Wilson signed a minor league contract with the Rays this offseason.

“It was definitely a tough decision for them because they are sticking their neck out for me and they’re putting their eggs in their basket for me and saying we appreciate what Bobby does behind the plate and values the defensive side and what I can do,” Wilson said. “I know it was a difficult decision for them, but I’m glad in their evaluation they wanted a veteran guy, somebody that has been in that role before.”

Casali batted .207 with six hits, one home run and 12 strikeouts in 33 plate appearances this spring.

"I know he's been continuing to work," Cash said, although he'd like to see him "drive the ball a little more."

It's pretty cool. Just two quality guys."
