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.

Starlin Castro to resume rehab in Arizona during the offseason
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro will spend some time in the Dominican Republic, but plans to resume his rehab at the team's spring facility in Arizona during the offseason, MLB.com reports Saturday.

Castro suffered a high left ankle sprain while sliding into home plate on Sept. 2, and injured that ended his season prematurely. He finished 2014 with a .292/.339/.438 slash line with 14 home runs and 65 RBI in 528 at-bats.

"It's big time frustrating," Castro said. "It's tough for me because I worked really hard to come back for one game or two. It's not going to happen but I'm not going to get frustrated. It's a really important season next year and I'm going to be healthy."
