  • Rays' Jose Caballero: Smacks second homer

    Caballero went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Monday against the Tigers.

    Caballero has made his mark with seven stolen bases across his first 22 games this season. However, he swatted his second homer of the campaign against Shelby Miller in the eighth inning, and he now has an extra-base hit in each of his last three games. Caballero has a clear path to playing time for the foreseeable future, as Taylor Walls (hip) has been shut down from baseball activities and is ineligible to return from the injured list until late May.

  • Rays' Jose Caballero: Tallies seventh stolen base

    Caballero went 1-for-3 with a double, an RBI, a run scored and a stolen base Saturday against the Yankees.

    Caballero continues to impress as the Rays' primary shortstop, as he now has at least one hit in four of his last five games while hitting .288 for the season. Though he doesn't offer much in terms of power, Caballero has been very aggressive on the basepaths with seven stolen bases on the season while being caught three times. With Taylor Walls out until at least late May, Caballero has a clear runway for consistent playing time.

It was Caballero's first long ball of 2024, but he's had a blistering start to the campaign at the plate, batting .351 (13-for-37) through 11 games with three doubles, five steals, six RBI and seven runs in addition to Wednesday's homer.

  • Rays' Jose Caballero: Strong start to time with Rays

    Caballero went 1-for-3 with a stolen base Sunday against the Blue Jays.

Caballero also swiped his first base of the campaign after stealing 26 bags in only 280 plate appearances in 2023.

  • Rays' Jose Caballero: Working on pulling flyballs

    Rays manager Kevin Cash said recently that hitting coach Chad Mottola has been working with Caballero on pulling the ball in the air, Adam Berry of reports.

    The 27-year-old had a recent batting practice that featured a handful of wind-aided homers, with Cash saying afterward of the approach that Caballero is "letting it loose" and "seems to be taking to that." Caballero hit just four home runs in 104 games last season with the Mariners and has never gone deep more than nine times in any professional season. However, the Rays have been able to squeeze the most out of players with limited power before with a pull-heavy approach, most recently with Isaac Paredes. Caballero -- who is expected to be Tampa Bay's Opening Day shortstop -- could boost his draft stock if he shows a power uptick this spring.
