Ryan Casteel managed a hit in just two of his 24 at-bats this spring and also struck out eight times for the Colorado Rockies .
Casteel played in 19 of the Rockies' spring training games but managed a slash line of just .083/.154/.083. This was rather surprising, considering Casteel was a .300 hitter for Triple-A Albuquerque last season. He continues to be a major strikeout candidate which seems to be the main thing holding him back from moving up in the Rockies' organization.
Ryan Casteel received an invitation to spring training Thursday.
Casteel was fairly successful at the Triple-A level last season, hitting .292 despite striking out nearly 25 percent of the time. He could be knocking on the door of the majors soon, but he may have to wait with the catcher pecking order in the majors pretty well set already.
