Blake Sabol

25-Year-Old CatcherC
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Sabol was the fourth overall pick during the Rule 5 draft in December, as the Giants picked him up (via trade with the Reds) after the Pirates declined to add him to the 40-man roster. He turned 25 years old in January and finished the 2022 campaign at the Triple-A level, where he had .296/.426/.543 slash line with five home runs in just 25 games. Sabol must stay on San Francisco's big-league roster for the full 2023 season in order for the organization to keep him. Joey Bart struggled in his first full-time action behind the plate last year following the retirement of Buster Posey, and it's hardly a guarantee he takes a notable step forward in 2023. Sabol should begin the season in a reserve role, and the Giants seem likely to add a veteran catcher for some stability, as it would be quite risky to have Sabol as the sole backup given he has yet to make his MLB debut.
