Astros still believe in Jason Castro after down year offensively
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

After an All-Star campaign in 2013, Astros catcher Jason Castro suffered a bit of a drop-off, especially offensively, in 2014. He struggled to find an offensive rhythm last season, batting just .222 in a career-high 126 games.

Even though Castro is coming off a down year offensively, the Astros still have high hopes for the 27-year-old catcher.

"He's a player that's an important player on our team, and he needs to be himself. He can have an impact on both sides of the ball," Hinch said Monday, per the Associated Press. "I really believe that he's settling into an important few years of his career. ... As he's getting older and more mature and more comfortable in the league, and getting into his rhythm and game plan on catching and hitting, he's in a great spot to have a great impact."

Astros general manager Jeff Lunhow echoes Hinch's sentiments.

"He's been a key part of the team ever since I got here," Luhnow said. "He had his All-Star year a couple years ago. Last year we saw some major strides defensively with his game, which were important, and the offense slipped a little bit, but I think that if you can somehow get the offense from 2013 and the defense from 2014, you've got one of the better catchers in the game."
