Castro (hand) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Angels, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. Castro is still tending to a hand contusion he suffered Friday night when a foul ball ricocheted off of him. It doesn't appear to be a major concern for the Astros, as manager A.J. Hinch said that Castro would be available off the bench Sunday, according to Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports. Evan Gattis will get the nod behind the plate Sunday, but Castro should return to action at some point during the Astros' series with the Yankees that begins Monday.
Castro, who took a foul tip off his hand in Friday's game, was a late scratch Saturday, the Houston Chronicle's Jake Kaplan reports. A right hand contusion will keep him out of action Saturday, but considering he was in the initial lineup, it's likely not that serious. Evan Gattis, who was originally slated to be the DH Saturday, will start at catcher and hit eighth while Jake Marisnick was added to the lineup in left field.
Castro is out of the lineup Tuesday against Oakland, Angel Verdejo Jr. of the Houston Chronicle reports. Castro will get the day off for the second time in the past three days as the Astros face another southpaw in Dillon Overton. With the left-hander on the mound, manager A.J. Hinch will start Evan Gattis at catcher, adding another right-handed bat to the lineup while giving Castro more rest.
Castro is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mariners. With southpaw Mike Montgomery starting for the Mariners, Astros manager A.J. Hinch will purge most of the lefty bats from his lineup, with Castro, A.J. Reed and Colby Rasmus all taking a seat. Evan Gattis will replace Castro at catcher.
Castro is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Oakland. After starting each of the past four games, Castro will be held out of the lineup for the final contest before the All-Star break. Evan Gattis is behind the plate, with Jose Altuve serving as the DH.
