Cubs' Starlin Castro returns to lineup Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro is back in the starting lineup Wednesday after missing five days of action due to right groin tightness. He feels "100 percent" after the time off, MLB.com reports.

Castro is aiming to play 162 games this season, though he hasn't informed manager Joe Maddon of his goal.

"Not yet, but I think they know," Castro said. "They know I want to play that, I want to be there every day. It doesn’t matter if today is a bad game, tomorrow’s a bad game, I don’t care. I’m here, trying to grow up every day and try to be a better player."

Castro is 6 for 26 with two doubles, one triple and two walks this spring.

Cubs' Starlin Castro carries teammate to build leg strength
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

One of the strength drills Cubs strength coach Tim Buss had shortstop Starlin Castro do to strengthen his legs was carry teammate Mike Olt on his back and run forward and backward, MLB.com reports.

"I did some things I've never done in my life," Castro said. "It really makes you tired at the moment, but after that, a few days later, you feel good."

Castro has had hamstring problems the last two springs, so the team has decided to emphasize leg work heading into the start of camp Wednesday.

Manager Joe Maddon has yet to determine where to hit the shortstop in the lineup, but Castro has voiced his preference to be placed in a spot and left there.

"Wherever they put me, I'll try to do my job," Castro said. "The only thing I like is if he puts me six, seven, leave me there. I like one spot and that's it."

Castro spent most of the 2014 season batting cleanup but did bat second, third, fifth and sixth in at least four games each. He hit .292/.339/.438 with 14 home runs, 65 RBI and four stolen bases in 528 at-bats last season.
