Orioles' Welington Castillo: Announced as member of Dominican Republic roster for WBC
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Castillo will play for the Dominican Republic in next month's World Baseball Classic, Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes reports.

The Orioles' new catcher was a surprise inclusion on the Dominican Republic roster that was announced Wednesday. Castillo, who signed a one-year deal worth $6 million this offseason with a player option in 2018, must now grow comfortable with the club's pitchers on a shortened spring training timetable. Pitchers and catchers report early next week, with the first workouts on Feb. 14, but Castillo will only have a couple weeks to get acquainted with his new staff before leaving to join the national team. This development is more likely to have a fantasy impact on Baltimore's pitching stats than it will on Castillo, however.

Orioles' Welington Castillo: Lands with Orioles on one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Castillo agreed to a one-year contract with the Orioles on Wednesday, Jon Heyman of Today's Knuckleball reports. The deal includes a player option for a second year.

The deal is worth $6 million in the first year and $7 million for the option year, per Heyman. Castillo will replace Matt Wieters behind the plate for the Orioles after getting non-tendered by the Diamondbacks, moving from one homer-friendly park to another. The 29-year-old posted solid offensive numbers for a catcher in 2016, slashing .264/.322/.423 with 14 home runs and 68 RBI, but that represented a small decline in power from his 2015 season. He may also see some designated hitter opportunities on days where Caleb Joseph takes over behind the plate.

Welington Castillo: Non-tendered by Diamondbacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Diamondbacks declined to tender Castillo a contract Friday, making him a free agent, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

With Castillo non-tendered, that leaves Oscar Hernandez and Chris Herrmann as the only catchers on the Diamondbacks' 40-man roster. Castillo might have received close to $6 million through the arbitration process following a 2016 season in which he hit .264/.322/.423. He packs good power for a catcher and is a plus player behind the plate, so he should land comfortably with another organization.

Diamondbacks' Welington Castillo: Held out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castillo is out of the lineup Sunday against the Padres.

Castillo will end his 2016 campaign with two consecutive days off, enabling Tuffy Gosewisch to get a turn behind the plate. While the 29-year-old Castillo didn't show quite as much power as the season before, he upped his batting average from .237 to .264 and still finished with respectable totals of 14 homers and 68 RBI in his 457 plate appearances.
