Latest Update Castro has drawn some trade interest, but the Cubs do not plan to move him this month   Fri Jul, 18, 01:56 PM

The Cubs have a plethora of talented shortstops with Starlin Castro showing that he can produce at a high level at just 24 years old but with current top prospects Javier Baez and newly acquired Addison Russell also shortstops the team might be inclined to trade one of them in an effort to rebuild their pitching staff. Castro is hitting .276 on the season with 43 runs, 11 home runs and 52 RBI on the season.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba

Assets & FlawsComplete Stats

Assets:   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.

    Cubs will try to move either current shortstop Starlin Castro or Triple-A prospect Javier Baez ?
  • In truth, it would probably be better for the Cubs to move Baez over Castro as the haul would likely be bigger. Castro is having a solid season so we know the skills are still there. If he can mentally handle being moved off shortstop and onto second base, then having that "veteran" presence is going to make the infield jell that much more. It's a pretty sweet place for the Cubs to be right now.Analyst: Howard Bender

    Starlin Castro drives in two runs in victory over Nationals
  • Castro continued his solid start to the season on Friday, registering his four multi-hit performance over his last five games. He is now sitting on a .290 average with 11 home runs and 50 RBI through 335 at-bats and has shown no signs of slowing down while maintaining a strikeout rate under 20 percent (18.8 percent). Even if he suffers a setback across the board in the second half of the season, he is still going to finish much better than he did the last two seasons. Analyst: Matthew Beck

    Starlin Castro with two RBI in win
  • Castro continues to be a solid run producer in the middle of the Cubs batting order, now sporting a .287 average with 11 home runs and 47 RBI through 307 at-bats. After sub-par performances in both 2012 and 2013, Castro has certainly got back on track this year and should remain a top fantasy option at shortstop while batting cleanup behind Anthony Rizzo.
