Diamondbacks' Welington Castillo: Agrees to one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Castillo and the Diamondbacks agreed to terms on a one-year, $3.7 million deal Friday, avoiding arbitration, MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports.

Castillo impressed after coming over from Seattle last season, and manager Chip Hale said last month that Castillo is expected to enter the season at the team's starting catcher. Chris Herrmann and Oscar Hernandez currently sit behind Castillo on the depth chart.

Diamondbacks' Welington Castillo: Starting catcher heading into 2016
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arizona Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Wednesday that Welington Castillo has earned the starting catcher job based on his performance in 2015, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

After a blistering few months following a trade from Seattle, Castillo cooled down the stretch to the point where he was splitting time evenly with Jarrod Saltalamacchia. He still finished with 19 homers, 57 RBI and 42 runs scored in 110 games, and while he did take a step back defensively, he returned plus value behind the plate. Chris Herrmann and Oscar Hernandez are currently the top options behind Castillo on the depth chart.

Diamondbacks to convert OF Peter O'Brien to catcher next season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Peter O will enter spring training next season as a catcher, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

O'Brien came up as a catcher, but made all three of his big league appearances this season in left field. With Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Welington Castillo both potentially hitting the free agent market, the Diamondbacks will enter the offseason with some uncertainty behind the plate, but O'Brien will have the opportunity to win the job.

Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo plates three in win over Rockies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Welington Castillo went 1 for 3 with a walk, three RBI and a run scored in an 8-6 win over the Colorado Rockies on Thursday.

Castillo has been slumping a bit as of late, but his second half has been pretty amazing considering the circumstances. He ranks in the top-five of all catchers in home runs and RBI since being acquired by the Diamondbacks and has been playing quite regularly. It remains to be seen if the Diamondbacks will rely on him in the future, but he certainly has made a nice case to reclaim the starting role next season.

Diamondbacks hold Welington Castillo out of Saturday's lineup
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Diamondbacks catcher Welington Castillo is out of the lineup Saturday against Giants, MLB.com's Steve Gilbert reports. 

With the Diamondbacks and Giants playing a day game after a night game, Castillo will receive a breather. Jarrod Saltalamacchia serves as the catcher for Diamondbacks starter Patrick Corbin.
