Latest Update Several teams are reportedly showing interest i Thu Dec, 11, 02:33 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.
The Cubs' recent acquisitions of Jon Lester and Miguel Montero have made Castillo and Wood a bit superflous, though the Cubs certainly do not need to trade either player. Wood's fantasy prospects would likely be better in Wrigley Field, though Castillo's fantasy owners should hope he winds up in Philadelphia or someplace where he can start most days.Analyst: Steve Pimental
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
