On today's Locked On Giants podcast, host Ben Kaspick breaks down the San Francsico Giants' signing of free-agent catcher Curt Casali to a one-year, $1.5M deal. Casali has been significantly above average against left-handed pitching in his major league career, and has been below-average against righties. He's considered a likeable guy and a strong clubhouse presence. He rates as an average or above-average pitch framer, and his poptimes are below average. With Casali now in the fold, the Giants now figure to boast enviable depth and flexibility at the catcher position as we enter the 2021 season. Buster Posey is still one of the best catchers in the game, Casali is a solid backup with an exploitable skill, Chadwick Tromp is young, intriguing, and has minor league options, and Joey Bart, the fourth catcher on the 40-man, is one of the top prospects in the game.

Also discussed on today's show is the Giants' potential pursuit of Japanese star pitcher Tomoyuki Sugano, who must choose an MLB team to sign with or return to Japan, by this Thursday. A decision, however, is expected as soon as today, and the Giants are reportedly among the interested teams.
