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. 

Epstein said Saturday Castillo will be on a major league roster this season. "Keeping three catchers is something we are contemplating," Epstein said, according to 670thescore.com.

Castillo is competing with Miguel Montero and David Ross at catcher after hitting .237 with 13 home runs and 46 RBI in 380 plate appearances in 2014.

Cubs' plan for Castillo remains cloudy as spring training approaches
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Cubs catcher Welington Castillo has heard all the rumors. He knows the team has been looking to find a trade partner to send him out of town. But he also knows it's nothing he can control.

"My plan was to come to spring training, keep working hard like I always do, trying to get better," Castillo said to the Chicago Sun-Times, "and just let the front office do their job. I can’t control it."

Castillo hit .237 in 380 at-bats in 2014 with 13 home runs and 46 RBI. New manager Joe Maddon said he likes Castillo, but things are still in flux.

"The team has not been set. A lot of things can happen between Feb. 20 and the start of the baseball season," Maddon said. "I’ve talked to the guy. I really like the guy. He’s very good. He’s an interesting player. He’s young. There’s a really high ceiling for this guy. So right now when we meet with Welington we’re just going to talk about the positive stuff and let’s just do spring training and see how it all plays out."

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.
