Latest Update Castro plans to resume his rehab at the team's spring facility in Arizona during the offseason Sat Sep, 27, 08:18 PM
Has a legitimate shortstop arm, burgeoning power and the speed to steal bases. Can be a true doubles machine due to very good bat speed. Owns all the tools for stardom.
Flaws: : Is mercurial and needs to play more of a fundamental game, in general. Could stand to draw more walks so as to maximize his potential as an offensive catalyst. Is too nonchalant in the field. Must mature.
Castro injured his ankle earlier in September and is done for the season. He'll get back to full strength in Arizona this offseason, and should be good to go for the spring. Analyst: Ben Diamond
Castro hasn't played since the beginning of September because of the ankle issue. This was a bounce back season for Castro and will be a solid fantasy shortstop next season.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
While this is Castro's goal, it's hard to imagine he will, as the Cubs won't want to have him risk further injury with them far out of the playoff race. If he does come back, it won't be for a bit longer, so he's probably safe to drop in single league formats. Analyst: Ben Diamond
While it's certainly not worst-case-scenario, the high-ankle sprain is a bummer for the Cubs who wanted to see him finish the season strong. Now it looks like his year is over. With no playoffs in sight, the Cubs have no reason to rush him back, so those of you in re-draft leagues, it's safe to cut him.Analyst: Howard Bender
