Latest Update Welington Castillo hits ninth home run Sun Aug, 17, 04:32 AM
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 now 6-for-18 (.333 BA) with two extra-base hits, one RBI and a pair of runs scored over his last six games and is now just one home run away from reaching doubled digits. However, he is far from being a fantasy option at this point in the season while slashing .240/.305/.389 through 283 at-bats.Analyst: Matthew Beck
Castillo has started six of the last seven games, so he'll take a seat Friday and get some well-deserved rest. Lefty John Baker will handle the work behind the dish and bat eighth against Chris Archer and the Rays.Analyst: Howard Bender
Despite a nice showing on Tuesday night, Castillo is slashing just .236/.301/.386 through 254 at-bats which is certainly not going to win anyone over. Unless you are in a deep NL-only league, he should remain on the waiver wire as we get into the stretch run. Analyst: Matthew Beck
After Tuesday's 16-inning game, Castillo will take a seat and get some much-needed rest. John Baker will handle the work behind the plate Wednesday.Analyst: Howard Bender
