    • Twins' Jason Castro: Takes seat Monday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Castro is out of the lineup Monday against the Red Sox, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Castro will be one of three lefty bats sitting out for the Twins with southpaw Chris Sale on the hill for the Red Sox, as Joe Mauer and Max Kepler join him on the bench. Chris Gimenez will pick up the start behind the dish and bat seventh.

    • Castro went 2-for-4 with two doubles and three RBI during Sunday's win over Cleveland. The veteran backstop is posting modest numbers and receiving consistent playing time. His .222/.314/.383 slash line, six homers, 26 RBI and 19 runs don't jump off the page, but the catcher position is pretty shallow. So, while Castro is a low-end option in most settings, he's not a fantasy afterthought, either.

    • Castro is out of the lineup Sunday against the Indians, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Castro and Chris Gimenez have alternated starts behind the plate the last six games, which has largely been a byproduct of Gimenez catching fire at the plate. Gimenez is a career .218/.304/.340 hitter, so once he reverts closer to the norm, Castro should reclaim a larger portion of the timeshare at catcher.

    • Castro went 4-for-5 -- all singles -- with four RBI and a run in Tuesday's 20-7 mashing of the Mariners. Multi-hit games have been few and far between for Castro, who came in hitting just .218 before marking season highs in hits and RBI in Tuesday's game. The former Astro has added some pop behind the plate for the Twins, giving him some value in two-catcher formats despite his laggard batting average.

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

      Castro is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Mariners, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. The Twins are attempting to get as many right-handed hitters in the lineup as possible against dominant lefty James Paxton, so Chris Gimenez draws the start behind the dish, hitting seventh. He is hitting .235/.325/.456 with three home runs and a 27.5 percent strikeout rate over his last 19 games (68 at-bats), which is actually useful for a catcher in today's environment.
