Astros C Jason Castro powers up for fifth home run on Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Astros catcher Jason Castro put the proverbial icing on the cake in Tuesday's win over the A's. Castro launched his fifth home run of the season in the bottom of the eighth inning. The solo shot gave the Astros a 6-2 lead; they would go on to win 6-4. 

Castro went 2 for 4 on the evening, and is hitting .256 with three homers and three RBI in 13 games played this month.

Astros catcher Jason Castro showing strong development
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Astros catcher Jason Castro has been able to turn the corner a bit this season for Houston, according to the Houston Chronicle.

The catcher has dropped his strikeout rate from 29.5 percent to 20 percent and is walking at a higher clip than last year.

"I knew after last year I wanted to cut the strikeout rate down, and then, how you go about that obviously is kind of difficult," Castro said. "I've tried to be a little more selective this year and not try to kind of force at-bats, I guess."

He noted his difficulty staying balanced at the plate in 2014.

"The (mechanical) adjustment allowed me to get to more pitches," Castro said. "The biggest thing for me was, I was having a hard time last year getting to a pitch kind of more up in the zone.

"Last year I was… off balance when I was swinging. And it created kind of a loop in my swing, so I was not able to get to balls up in the zone, almost like swinging up through the zone. So I tried to kind of balance that out somewhat."

Astros DH Evan Gattis not in Sunday's lineup
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Astros designated hitter Evan Gattis is not in Sunday's starting lineup against the Angels. 

For Gattis, it's most likely a day off. Against the Angels on Saturday, Gattis went 0 for 3 at the plate. He holds just a .185 batting average so far this season. Preston Tucker will serve as Houston's DH against the Angels. 

Robbie Grossman will play in left field and bat ninth. After taking Saturday off, catcher Jason Castro returns to the lineup and will bat sixth. Castro has recorded a hit in eight of his last 10 games.
