Latest Update Starlin Castro hits 14th home run Sun Aug, 31, 04:22 AM
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.
Despite logging only one RBI over his last six games, Castro has been hitting the ball very well over that span, slashing .375/.375/.542 over his last 24 at-bats. On the season the Cubs shortstop is now sitting on 14 home runs and 65 RBI as he continues to have himself a solid bounce back year as he remains one of the better options to deploy at his position in terms of fantasy.Analyst: Matthew Beck
Castro was activated from the teams bereavement list after he left the team for personal reasons.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Castro has been out of action since being placed on the bereavement list last Wednesday as he dealt with a personal matter. Expect to see Castro back in the middle of the Cubs lineup where he has had much success in 2014. Through 496 at-bats Castro is slashing .284/.333/.429 with 13 home runs and 64 RBI, making him one of the better shortstops to own in 2014. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Javier Baez -- a shortstop by trade -- will fill in for Castro in the meantime. If Castro misses a week, it could ensure Baez retains SS eligibility in 2015, arguably making him the best power option at the position. Analyst: Spencer Silva
