    • Twins' Jason Castro: Out of lineup Wednesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Castro is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Castro will head to the bench following back-to-back starts, allowing Chris Gimenez to step in behind the dish. The 29-year-old Castro continues to walk at a good clip, but he's batting .200 -- his average has ranged from .200-.211 over the past three years -- and he hasn't hit a home run since May 1.

    • Twins' Jason Castro: Gets day off Wednesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Castro is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Rockies. Castro turned in his first game with multiple extra-base hits Tuesday, doubling twice and driving in a run. That won't prevent manager Paul Molitor from moving Castro to the bench for the second time in three games, but that may be a preemptive measure with rainstorms descending on the Minneapolis area. Even if Wednesday's game doesn't get postponed, there's a good chance of an in-game delay or two, which could translate to a long night behind the plate for Chris Gimenez, who will swap in for Castro.

    • Catsro went 2-for-4 with two doubles, a run scored and an RBI in Tuesday's 7-3 loss to the Rockies. Both doubles came off left-handed pitchers, a nice bonus for a hitter who's struggled against same-side opponents in his career, but Castro's limp .202/.304/.360 slash line through 26 games still isn't moving the needle for fantasy GMs even in deep AL-only formats.

      By RotoWire Staff

      Castro is out of the lineup Sunday against the Indians, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    • Twins' Jason Castro: Not in lineup Thursday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Castro is not in the lineup Thursday against the White Sox, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. This comes as no surprise, as Castro was out of the lineup Wednesday before the contest was postponed. With the White Sox still sending southpaw Derek Holland to the mound, manager Paul Molitor will overload his lineup with right-handed bats, sending Castro and Max Kepler to the bench. Chris Gimenez will take over behind the dish in his stead.
