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
Indians recall OF Tyler Holt from Triple-A Columbus.
The Indians traded David Murphy to the Angels on July 28 which opened up a roster spot for Holt. The 26-year-old outfielder had a slash line of .286/.369/.348 with 20 stolen bases for Triple-A Columbus. Holt should provide fantasy owners with speed, but it's hard to know how valuable he is until the Indians announce how they will use Holt. Analysis: Phil Backert
Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) had an injection of platelet-rich plasma Monday. He'll be shut down for a few days.
Pedroia was rushed back from his previous hamstring injury and it appears the Red Sox will be extra careful with their star second baseman this time around. Pedroia missed nearly a month after being placed on the disabled list June 25 so it is safe to assume he will at least miss that much time again. Fantasy owners are looking at the end of August as a best case scenario for Pedroia to return which puts his fantasy value in huge jeopardy. That's a shame as Pedroia has put together a solid season with a slash line of .287/.348/.426 with nine homeruns, 34 RBIs and 35 runs scored. Analysis: Phil Backert
