Castillo will get the day off for Sunday's game against the Rays, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. He has played the past three games and will receive a standard day of rest in favor of Caleb Joseph, who is behind the plate while batting seventh Sunday. Castillo will likely be back in the lineup Tuesday following Baltimore's scheduled day off.
Castillo went 1-for-5 with a two-run homer Saturday against the Rays. Castillo crushed his eighth bomb of the campaign to put the Orioles on the board in the second inning of a road victory. With a .284 batting average along with a .462 slugging percentage, he's been a strong fantasy player at the catcher position.
Castillo (shoulder) is in the lineup for Thursday's game against Cleveland. Castillo sat out Wednesday with a sore right shoulder after getting struck by a foul ball while catching during Tuesday's contest. He appears good to go for the series finale with the Indians, as he will set up behind the dish and bat sixth.
Updating a previous report, Castillo is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Indians due to a sore right shoulder, according to Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports. Castillo picked up the injury during Tuesday's game, when he was struck by a foul ball while catching. The injury doesn't sound all that significant, and considering Castillo had started 11 straight games, he could probably benefit from the day off anyway. Caleb Joseph is starting behind the plate in Castillo's stead Wednesday.
Castillo is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Indians. Castillo has started each of the last 11 games at either catcher or designated hitter and has hit just .162 over that stretch, so he'll receive a needed day off as the Orioles go with Caleb Joseph behind the plate. Look for Castillo to draw back into the lineup for Thursday's series finale.
