Castillo is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Red Sox. It's surprising Castillo is sitting out Tuesday against left-hander Drew Pomeranz given his .979 OPS against lefties this year, but less so when considering he went just 1-for-18 (.056) with nine strikeouts over his last six starts. Caleb Joseph will get the nod behind the plate in Castillo's place.
Castillo is out of the lineup Sunday against the Yankees. Over the last three games, Castillo has picked up just one hit across nine at-bats, although said hit was a home run. He'll rest Sunday as Caleb Joseph fills in at catcher.
Castillo went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer Friday against the Yankees. Castillo launched his 20th homer of the season to give the Orioles a short-lived lead in the second inning of a road defeat. Although he doesn't play every day, he's been an outstanding option at catcher this season, as he owns a .291/.327/.508 slash line.
Castillo (groin) is in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Yankees. Castillo is back behind the plate following a multi-game absence due to a groin injury that he suffered on a foul ball Monday. The catcher will bat eighth in the order, and is slashing .217/.250/.609 with three home runs this month.
Castillo (groin) is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Blue Jays. Although he's shown plenty of improvement, Castillo is still dealing with a groin injury that he incurred after being hit by a foul ball Monday. He's expected to return to the lineup fairly soon, but Caleb Joseph will start in his place behind the dish and hit ninth Wednesday night.
