Cubs not impressed with trade talks regarding Welington Castillo
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer said Monday he has had no compelling trade discussions regarding catcher Welington Castillo, according to the Chicago Daily Herald. Castillo has been mentioned in trade rumors since the Cubs acquired Miguel Montero from the Diamondbacks.

The Cubs avoided arbitration with Castillo, agreeing to a $2.1 million salary for 2015. Castillo hit .237 with a career-best 13 home runs and 46 RBI in 110 games last season.

Diamondbacks have had trouble dealing for a catcher
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Diamondbacks haven't been happy with the cost of acquiring a catcher in a trade, according to the Arizona Republic.

We've not made a whole lot of headway in that area yet," general manager Dave Stewart said. "Without really giving up something that's going to cost us a player that we don't want to give away." Arizona dealt starter Miguel Montero to the Cubs in December, and the team is set to open the season with the unproven Tuffy Gosewisch behind the dish.

The club has been in contact with the Cubs regarding Welington Castillo, but nothing has materialized yet. Stewart said rival clubs are asking for Arizona's "top guys" in exchange for a catcher.
