Latest Update Jason Castro went 2-for-5 with a RBI and a stolen base in the Astros win over the Yankees Tuesday. Tue Aug, 19, 11:45 PM
Brings a big frame and excellent athleticism to the catching position. Shows good instincts as a hitter, complete with power and the ability to draw walks.
Flaws: : Needs to show he can become a consistent all-round performer behind the dish, which he has the potential to become. Injuries are a concern with him.
He hasn't lived up to his overall numbers from last season, but Castro has been much better during the month of August. He is currently batting .235 with 12 home runs in 373 at-bats.Analyst: David Kerr
Castro is now slashing .233/.303/.386 with 12 home runs and 45 RBI through 373 at-bats as he continues to struggle building off of an impressive first full season as the Astros backstop. Unless you are in a very deep league, he is best served either on the bench or on the waiver wire until further notice. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Carlos Corporan will don the tools of ignorance while Castro gets a routine day off. Corporan could be a sneaky play in daily formats, as Twins starter Kyle Gibson has struggled mightily after a hot start.Analyst: Steve Pimental
Castro has now hit safely in five straight games, with Saturday's performance being the first multi-hit game in that stretch. He is slashing .234/.300/.398 with 11 home runs and 43 RBI on the season, which is certainly down from a season ago but still worthy of fantasy consideration for those in deep mixed and AL-only formats if in need of help behind the dish.Analyst: Matthew Beck
