Latest Update Welington Castillo homered in 2nd game back with the Cubs Sun Jul, 20, 12:24 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 27-year old catcher has some home run upside if you are desperate for a second catcher in a two catcher league, just realize that it will likely come at the expense of a low average as Castillo, who is currently hitting .236, is a career .259 hitter.Analyst: Michael Pichan
Castillo will sit the early game against right-hander Johnny Cueto and be back in the lineup for the second game. John Baker will catch the first game.Analyst: Howard Bender
Though this is his second day off in three games, he's still started five of the last six and is in need of a little bit of rest. Nothing major here. John Baker will get the nod in his stead.Analyst: Howard Bender
Castillo chipped in on the Cubs 16-run night, smacking his first home run since May 18. Sitting on a .237 average with six home runs and 26 RBI, Castillo will have to pick up the pace before warranting consideration in league outside of NL-only formats. Analyst: Matthew Beck
