      Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo plates three in win over Rockies

      Diamondbacks catcher Welington Castillo went 1 for 3 with a walk, three RBI and a run scored in an 8-6 win over the Rockies on Thursday. Castillo has been slumping a bit as of late, but his second half has been pretty amazing considering the circumstances. He ranks in the top-five of all catchers in home runs and RBI since being acquired by the Diamondbacks and has been playing quite regularly. It remains to be seen if the Diamondbacks will rely on him in the future, but he certainly has made a nice case to reclaim the starting role next season.
