Welington Castillo feeling good after 16-inning game
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cubs catcher Welington Castillo caught 10 innings opening day and was behind the plate for all 16 innings Wednesday. Even though Wednesday's game took nearly six hours, Castillo said he was feeling good Thursday despite getting the day off.

"After the game, I did eight minutes in the cold tub and I was fine," Castillo said, per MLB.com. "That's why I'm very happy, because my body feels like that after 16 innings. It's not 16 easy innings -- it was tough. We had long innings, we had foul balls, I got hit. My body feels really, really good. I'm really happy about it."

Cubs to 'make sure' Welington Castillo 'stays healthy'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cubs catcher Welington Castillo said he's had no problems with his right knee since undergoing surgery in September, reports MLB.com.

He was able to catch bullpen sessions Saturday, but the Cubs said they will be cautious with his workload this spring.

"We're going to monitor the innings he's catching, just like anybody who comes off something, especially a catcher," Cubs manager Rick Renteria said Saturday. "He's working hard. We were out there this morning, and he was moving fine. We're aware of it, and we'll do what we can to make sure he stays healthy."
