Update: Starlin Castro is playing with the Cubs on Saturday for first time since injuring his hamstring March 2 .

All signs had pointed to Castro being ready for Opening Day, so this just adds a bit of confirmation to it. Don't be alarmed if he comes out the gate a little rusty as he hasn't been taking his regular cuts, but he should still be fine. The important thing is that the club took its time with the hamstring injury so hopefully he won't have a lingering issue all year.ANALYST: Howard Bender
