Cubs may carry Welington Castillo as third catcher
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Cubs manager Joe Maddon loves how catcher Welington Castillo has performed so far this spring. So much so, Maddon gushed over how he handled a situation with pitcher Jon Lester Monday.

"Think about Welly's tools," Maddon said to MLB.com. "He's a premier thrower, premier -- one of the best out there right now. Furthermore, there's always the threat of injury. What is probably the most difficult spots in all of baseball to find somebody you like? I would say catching is among the most difficult."

Maddon wouldn't go as far as to say Castillo will make the team as the third catcher, but is thinking about it.

"I'm not saying Welly is on the team," Maddon said, "but you have to think that way as you're putting the whole thing together. If you're trying to find Welington Castillo in mid-April, you ain't going to find him unless you've got him," Maddon said.

Cubs' Maddon proud Lester did not blame catcher for bad outing
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cubs starting pitcher Jon Lester had his worst outing of the spring thus far Monday against the Padres, yielding six runs on seven hits (two home runs) in 3 1/3 innings. It was his first game working with catcher Welington Castillo, who tried to take the blame for Lester's poor outing but the veteran pitcher wouldn't have it.

"I was so proud of Jon Lester," manager Joe Maddon said Tuesday morning, per ESPN. "Lester would not permit [catcher] Welington Castillo to take blame for any of his shortcomings yesterday.

"It was so refreshing and good. This is so awesome, that your guy is that accountable and that your guy gets it. He probably elevated Welington so much from that conversation. I could not be more proud of a player on my team than I was yesterday."

Lester had tossed five scoreless innings in his first two spring starts, allowing four hits and no walks.

"Wely came in a couple times in the dugout and apologized for some stuff, and I don't know what he was getting at," Lester said. "I'm the one chucking the ball, he's not. When it comes down to it, it doesn't matter who you have back there, you're the one trying to execute the pitches, and I flat out did not execute the pitches."

Cubs taking wait-and-see approach on Welington Castillo's future
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Although Cubs catcher Welington Castillo is on the trade block and could be dealt before opening day, manager Joe Maddon told reporters that he's going to let the Castillo rumors play out before he decides whether he'll break camp with three catchers, per Comcast SportsNet Chicago.

"Let's just play it (out)," Maddon said. "Let's get him ready. He's really good. I really mean it. I like Castillo a lot. He's really opened up also in talking to guys and among the group, which is really nice to hear. There's a lot of good stuff going on there."

Cubs considering keeping three catchers on roster
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Cubs general manager Theo Epstein believes in Welington Castillo, but he's not sure if it'll be with Chicago.
