The way Cal Raleigh’s rookie season unfolded wasn’t what he expected, but he now understands why his playing time has been drastically cut in the last weeks.
The Mariners’ young catcher had no right to complain or mope about his father’s absence. He had more time to get ready for his next opportunity.
Raleigh’s two-run homer off Deolis Guerra in the fifth inning of the key four-game series with the A’s sparked the Mariners’ come-from-behind 6-5 victory over the A’s.
Raleigh’s first home run since July 23, again against the A’s at T-Mobile Park, marked his second career MLB home run. It lasted 36 games and 117 plate appearances.
Considering the power he showed in the minors this season, the dry spell was shocking. However, the move to big-league pitching has been challenging for him.
At the start of the All-Star break, Raleigh has a .177/.217/.308 slash line with 11 doubles and two home runs, 13 RBI, six walks and 50 strikeouts in 130 at-bats.
With just four hits (three doubles), no runs batted in, no walks given up, and 14 strikeouts in his last 13 games, he has a slash line of .114 (.114/.114/.200).
