Latest Update Welington Castillo is not in the Cubs' starting lineup on Friday. Fri Sep, 26, 04:40 PM
Owns very good game-calling skills and defensive ability behind the plate. Also boasts home-run power and a decent bat overall.
Flaws: : Lacks polish as a hitter and doesn't usually have a flattering walk/strikeout ratio. Like most catchers, he lacks a lot of mobility.
Castillo is getting the night off, but should be behind the plate for the Cubs' final two games. He is batting .239 with 13 home runs this year. Rafael Lopez will catch and bat ninth on Friday night.Analyst: David Kerr
Castillo doesn't see many big games, but he had one on Tuesday night. Though his average is paltry, Castillo does had 13 home runs this year.Analyst: David Kerr
Castillo now has 12 home runs on the year to go with 43 RBIs. He has experienced a significant drop off in his batting average from last year, but his home runs and RBIs are up. Consider him a #2 catcher or an NL-only league option at best.Analyst: Colby Conway
That at least offers up some promise for next week in case you have Castillo in your lineup for the final week of the season. The injury is not serious and he should be back in a day or so.Analyst: Howard Bender
