Cubs' Castillo hoping to earn more playing time after pinch-hit HR
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Cubs catcher Welington Castillo made the best out of his limited role with a two-run, pinch-hit home run in a 3-2 loss to the Reds on Tuesday. Castillo has two hits in his first six at-bats. He remains hopeful that his success at the plate will eventually lead to more playing time, per the Chicago Tribune.

"I know he doesn't like it," manager Joe Maddon said. "I don't want him to like it, actually. He's really good. That's what I felt all along.

"His last three pinch hits, the ball has been hit hard every time and had some big knocks. But it indicates how good of a player he can be, given an opportunity."

Cubs' Castillo doesn't change approach despite being third catcher
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Cubs had a different starting catcher for the third time in three games to open the season Friday against the Rockies, as Welington Castillo drew his first start. 

Although Castillo is now third on the catcher's depth chart behind Miguel Montero and David Ross, his approach hasn't changed.

"I came into the season with my mind ready like I’m going to play every day," Castillo said, per the Chicago Tribune. "That’s my mindset, even though I’m not playing. That’s how my mind is.

"I just got to be ready for whenever they want me to play or how they want me to use me."

Although there is no indication a deal is pending, there is the possibility the Cubs could trade Castillo.

"Sure, anything can happen," Castillo said. "This is a business, so I’m just here to play and win games, whatever they need me to do or if they're going to trade me or if something happens."

Cubs' Welington Castillo to open season as No. 3 catcher
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cubs catcher Welington Castillo has made the team's initial 25-man roster and will open the season as the backup to Miguel Montero and David Ross, MLB.com reports.

"I told him, I think he's a major-league catcher, we think he's a major-league catcher," manager Joe Maddon said. "Obviously, it's going to be more difficult to be slotted in than he'd like to be right now. There's a lot of opportunity in the latter part of the game, whether it's pinch-running for somebody else or pinch-hitting, and beyond that getting him some starts. ... Of course, somebody will get injured -- it always happens -- so be ready. He's still young. He's the kind of guy I don't think we want to lose. That's a premium position to find. You don't shake a tree and find a good catcher. We have three good catchers here and that's really nice."

Castillo has hit .257/.333/.514 with two home runs in 35 at-bats this spring.

Cubs' Epstein doesn't expect to deal C Welington Castillo this spring
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

The Cubs have received inquiries this spring on their backup catcher Welington Castillo but team president Theo Epstein said he does not expect to trade him prior to Opening Day, reports MLB.com.

“We don’t think it’s a high likelihood we’ll make a move outside of this camp,” Epstein said. “We think we have a lot of answers here in camp and as we look forward into the season with what we have at Triple-A, it’s pretty good.”

Along with Castillo, the Cubs are likely to break camp with catchers Miguel Montero and David Ross.

Castillo is hitting .281 this spring with two home runs and seven RBI in 32 at-bats.
