Player Outlook
A second-round pick in 2020, Casey Schmitt was called up for the first time in May as a replacement for Brandon Crawford. Schmitt ended up bouncing between shortstop (42 games), third base (35 games) and second base (19 games), mostly struggling at the plate until the final day of the season when he hit two home runs. He spent some time back at Triple-A in August and September as the team tried to spark the offense later in the year. Among the 328 big leaguers to see 250-plus plate appearances last season, Schmitt ranked 11th worst by wRC+ (59). While he ended the season on a brief high note, Schmitt is not a lock to start the 2024 season with a regular role. His minor-league track record suggests there may be something here, but most will need to see more before rostering him on a fantasy team.

  • Giants' Casey Schmitt: Retreating to bench

    Schmitt is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks. Schmitt started at shortstop in each of the previous four games and went 5-for-12 with a pair of home runs, but he still looks to be stuck in a part-time role with the Giants. He benefited from Thairo Estrada missing three of the previous four games with a thumb injury, resulting in Brett Wisely picking up starts at the keystone on all three occasions. Wisely and Estrada should serve as the Giants' primary middle infielders now that both are healthy, and Schmitt could be at risk of a demotion to Triple-A Sacramento once shortstop Nick Ahmed (wrist) makes his way back from the 10-day injured list.

  • Giants' Casey Schmitt: Homers in consecutive games

    Schmitt went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 7-5 loss to the Yankees. With Marco Luciano (hamstring) landing on the injured list Friday, Schmitt has a chance to make shortstop his own in June. This was Schmitt's second game in a row in the lineup -- he started versus right-hander Cody Poteet on Saturday and stayed in the starting nine versus southpaw Nestor Cortes on Sunday. Through eight games this season, Schmitt has two homers, five RBI and two runs scored over 30 plate appearances. Brett Wisely has also been an option at shortstop lately, and both Schmitt and Wisely offer utility upside if the Giants opt to get creative with their lineup decisions.

  • Giants' Casey Schmitt: Hits homer in loss

    Schmitt went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 7-3 loss to the Yankees. Schmitt got the Giants on the board in the third inning in his first game since his recall Friday and his seventh contest at the big-league level season. He's gone 5-for-26 (.192) with two extra-base hits and three RBI. Schmitt will be an option at shortstop primarily, but he also has experience at second and third, so he may settle into a utility role while in the majors.

  • Giants' Casey Schmitt: Recalled by San Francisco

    The Giants recalled Schmitt from Triple-A Sacramento on Friday. The move corresponds with Marco Luciano being placed on the injured list due to a right hamstring strain. Since being optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on May 17, Schmitt has gone 14-for-44 with 12 runs, four home runs and 12 RBI. With both Luciano and Nick Ahmed (wrist) on the IL, Schmitt will likely form a platoon at shortstop with the lefty-hitting Brett Wisely.

  • Giants' Casey Schmitt: Optioned to Sacramento

    The Giants optioned Schmitt to Triple-A Sacramento on Friday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Schmitt will lose his spot on the big-league roster with Jorge Soler (shoulder) returning from the injured list Friday. Schmitt went just 3-for-22 and drove in one RBI during his brief stint in the majors, though he may return to San Francisco if the Giants need to rely on their organizational infield depth again later this season.

  • Giants' Casey Schmitt: Recalled from Sacramento

    The Giants recalled Schmitt from Triple-A Sacramento on Friday. With Nick Ahmed (wrist) headed to the injured list, Schmitt will come up from the minors to serve as infield depth. The 25-year-old has spent all of 2024 with Sacramento, slashing .269/.313/.440 with 31 RBI across 147 plate appearances, and he will get the start at shortstop Friday against the Reds.

  • Giants' Casey Schmitt: Sent down to Triple-A

    The Giants optioned Schmitt to Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday, Shayna Rubin of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Schmitt's chance at an Opening Day roster spot probably went away when the club signed Nick Ahmed, but he didn't help himself in going 3-for-26 at the dish this spring. The 25-year-old should bounce around the infield as a regular at Sacramento.

  • Giants' Casey Schmitt: In mix for shortstop job

    Schmitt is in the mix to be the Giants' starting shortstop, though he begins the spring behind Marco Luciano on the depth chart, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Schmitt is a versatile defender who could also slot in at second base or third base. He appeared in 90 games for the Giants as a rookie last season, posting a .206/.255/.324 slash line with five home runs, 30 RBI, 28 runs scored, 15 doubles and two stolen bases. Schmitt could end up being a utility option, but his strong defense should allow him to open the season in the majors.

  • Giants' Casey Schmitt: Homers twice in finale

    Schmitt went 2-for-3 with a pair of solo home runs in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Dodgers. Schmitt was responsible for all of San Francisco's offense in the loss. He got the Giants on the board with a homer off Ryan Pepiot in the sixth inning, just his second in his last 86 games, before adding another long ball in the fifth. After going 26-for-76 (.342) with a .851 OPS in his first 20 major-league games, Schmidt struggled to a .147 average (26-for-177) in his final 70 contests. The 24-year-old infielder will wrap up his rookie campaign with a .206/.255/.324 slash line, five homers, 30 RBI and two stolen bases across 277 plate appearances.

  • Giants' Casey Schmitt: Recalled from Triple-A

    The Giants recalled Schmitt from Triple-A Sacramento on Friday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. J.D. Davis (shoulder) will be unavailable for the final weekend of the regular season, so Schmitt returns to the active roster as an option at third base. The 24-year-old has batted just .202/.254/.300 with three homers and two steals through his first 88 major-league games this season.

  • Giants' Casey Schmitt: Sent back to minors

    Schmitt was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Friday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Schmitt loses his roster spot with Michael Conforto (hamstring) returning from the injured list. The rookie infielder has not been able to get things going offensively to this point at the big-league level, putting up just a .553 OPS in 88 contests.

  • Giants' Casey Schmitt: Ends homer drought

    Schmitt went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's 8-5 win over Atlanta. Schmitt homered twice over his first three major-league games, but that was it for his power until Sunday. The homer drought lasted 71 contests. The infielder is at a .199/.252/.292 slash line with 26 RBI, 23 runs scored, two stolen bases and 11 doubles through 236 plate appearances this season. Schmitt appears to have a lock on a short-side platoon role at third base while providing cover around the infield as a strong defender, but he hasn't hit well enough (2-for-19 in August) to justify a full-time role for a team in the wild-card chase.

  • Giants' Casey Schmitt: Returns to bench role

    Schmitt is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Phillies, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports. Schmitt started at three different infield positions the last three games, going hitless across eight at-bats. Since June 19, Schmitt has mustered a .086/.202/.111 slash line over a stretch of 37 games. Though he's been valued for his defensive work, Schmitt's lack of production at the plate over a prolonged stretch looks as though it'll force him into a utility role even while the Giants are without Brandon Crawford (forearm). The Giants signed veteran Paul DeJong on Wednesday, and he's expected to take over as the team's everyday shortstop sans Crawford.

  • Giants' Casey Schmitt: Back in majors

    The Giants recalled Schmitt from Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Schmitt will offer the Giants extra depth in the infield while Ross Stripling (back) and Ryan Walker (paternity) are both out. The 24-year-old was optioned to Triple-A on Aug. 6 and has since slashed .311/.354/.533 with six RBI over 48 plate appearances.

  • Giants' Casey Schmitt: Optioned to minors

    Schmitt was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday. Schmitt has been up with the big club since early May and has at times served as San Francisco's primary shortstop, but he'll head back to the minors with a .548 OPS in 218 plate appearances. Brandon Crawford has struggled in his own right this year with a .211/.281/.349 slash line, so Schmitt could receive another look in the majors before the end of the campaign.

  • Giants' Casey Schmitt: Serving as primary shortstop

    Schmitt will start at shortstop and bat eighth in Sunday's game against the Nationals. Schmitt will stick in the lineup for a seventh consecutive game and looks poised to serve as the Giants' primary shortstop against both right- and left-handed pitching while Brandon Crawford (knee) is on the shelf. Since opening his big-league career with 26 hits in his first 20 games, Schmitt is batting an abysmal .124 with no home runs, eight runs and seven RBI over his subsequent 39 contests.

  • Giants' Casey Schmitt: Sitting Saturday

    Schmitt isn't starting Saturday against the Pirates, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Schmitt will get a breather Saturday after going 1-for-4 with a double during Friday's contest. Brett Wisely will take over at the keystone and bat ninth while Schmitt sits.

  • Giants' Casey Schmitt: Not starting Saturday

    Schmitt isn't in the Giants' lineup Saturday against the Rockies, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports. Schmitt has just one hit in 15 tries since the beginning of July, so he'll take a day off Saturday to regroup. While Schmitt sits, Brett Wisely will start at second base and bat ninth while Brandon Crawford covers short.

  • Giants' Casey Schmitt: Sitting Saturday

    Schmitt isn't in the Giants' lineup Saturday against the Diamondbacks, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports. Schmitt is 1-for-12 across his last six games, though he still managed to reach base seven times in that span. He'll get a day off Saturday as Brandon Crawford starts at shortstop for the sixth time in seven games.

  • Giants' Casey Schmitt: Walks twice in return

    Schmitt (arm) went 0-for-1 with two walks in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Padres. Schmitt was out of the starting lineup for a couple of games after he was hit by a pitch Sunday. He's drawn walks in four of his last six plate appearances, though he's gone just 3-for-22 since June 12. Prior to Monday, Schmitt had walked just one time in his first 35 big-league games. Schmitt will likely continue competing for playing time on the left side of the infield, primarily challenging J.D. Davis and Brandon Crawford for their spots in the lineup. Schmitt owns a .262/.302/.377 slash line with two home runs, 21 RBI, 16 runs scored and two stolen bases through 139 plate appearances.
