2023 Player Outlook
2023 Recap: Basabe made his big-league debut for the Rays last season playing 19 games at shortstop and he also spent some time at second base and third base as well. His offensive stats weren’t very impressive but with just 87 big league at bats we’re looking at a very small sample size.
2024 Outlook: Based on his minor league profile he’s a disciplined hitter who’s a speedster that can spray the ball to all fields (.311/.369/.432). His playing time will depend on whether Caballero proves he can hit big league pitching or not and on when Walls is healthy enough to rejoin the Rays’ lineup.
