      Astros' Jason Castro: Loses arbitration hearing

      Castro lost his arbitration hearing and will be paid $5 million in 2016, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports. Castro was seeking $5.25 million, so he probably won't be too upset. With Hank Conger traded during the offseason, Castro could see a bump from last year's 104 games, though he'll need to do a bit more with the bat this time around. Even if he struggles, Castro's glove and pitcher management should give him a long leash.

      Astros' Jason Castro: Headed to arbitration

      Castro will have an arbitration hearing to settle his contract, MLB.com's Brian McTaggart reports. Castro and the Astros have been unable to agree to a contract, with the two sides reportedly $250,000 apart. Regardless of how this plays out, Castro figures to open the season as Houston's primary catcher. With Hank Conger traded during the offseason, Castro should see an uptick from last season's 104 games played, assuming he stays healthy.

      Astros' Jason Castro: Tendered a contract by Astros

      Castro was tendered a contract by the Astros on Wednesday, Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle reports. This comes as no surprise, as Castro acted as the Astros' primary catcher for much of last season. Despite the fact that he hit only .211 with 11 home runs and 31 RBI, the recent trade to send Hank Conger out of town means that Castro appears primed to continue that role into next season.

      Astros C Jason Castro making progress from quad injury

      Astros catcher Jason Castro said he was pleased with the progress he was making from a strained right quad, reports MLB.com. "The soreness has gone down quite a bit, so that's a good thing," Castro said. "All the reports have been pretty good, as far as what the staff and doctors think... It's only been three or four days, so we're trying to get it to calm down as much as possible before we start pushing it again." Castro is on the DL due to the injury and is hoping to return after his 15 days are up. "That's not something we've talked about yet," Castro said of a possible rehab assignment. "But because I have the 15 days to get everything in I need to do, that will be our kind of timeline and that's what we'll kind of shoot for, as far as how we're going to progress."
