Cubs' Starlin Castro plays at second base for first time in career
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cubs infielder Starlin Castro, who lost his starting shortstop job to rookie Addison Russell, played at second base for the final four innings of Tuesday's win against the Brewers. It was the first time in his six-year MLB career he played at second base.

"It doesn't matter where they put me," Castro said, per the Chicago Tribune. "I just want to play. I just want to be in the lineup. It doesn't matter if it's at second or short."

While Castro's agent -- Paul Kinzer -- lent support to his client, he also chose his words carefully.

"Sometimes a change of scenery is good for everybody," Kinzer said. "I think it would crush him to leave Chicago. He loves it here.

"Let's face it. If he's not playing, he's not being traded. There are a lot of people in baseball who know he can play shortstop at a high level."

Benching of Cubs SS Starlin Castro could be permanent
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro was benched Friday. He might be forced to get used to it.

Joe Maddon did not term his absence from the lineup a day off and made no guarantees that the slumping Castro will start Saturday against San Francisco either. In fact, quite the opposite.

"I did not give him any promises on how he is going to be utilized, other than 'just stay ready off the bench,'" Maddon told the Chicago Tribune. "I didn't want to give him any kind of false promises whatsoever."

Castro owns a weak slash line of .236/.271/.304. He ranks last among major league shortstops with a -0.8 WAR. The last straw was Thursday, when he stranded six runners.

Report: Cubs seeking to trade SS Starlin Castro to Padres
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Cubs and Padres have discussed a deal involving shortstop Starlin Castro with the former seeking starting pitching, sources have told Fox Sports.

The 25-year-old Castro has stagnated in recent years and is having arguably his worst season. He owns a .230/.268/.302 slash line and has been particularly ineffective recently. He has just seven hits in his last 69 at-bats.

Report: Cubs dangle top middle infielders in Cole Hamels talks
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Cubs are offering standout prospect Javier Baez and established shortstop Starlin Castro in an attempt to land Phillies prized pitcher Cole Hamels, a team executive has told ESPN.com senior baseball writer Jayson Stark.

Stark added, however, that the Phillies are not enthralled with either player. But the Cubs remain determined in their efforts to trade for Hamels.

"I don't think they'll be in the rental market," the executive who has spoken to the Cubs told Stark. "So the value to them, with Hamels, is the three years [left on his contract]. This isn't just about selling out to go for the wild card. It's about getting ahead of [the free-agent ace market] this winter."
