Castillo is dealing with a concussion, James Fegan of The Athletic reports. Initial reports after Castillo took a foul ball off his mask Friday suggested that the catcher would avoid the concussion protocol, but that evidently changed as he was placed on the 7-day injured list Saturday. Seby Zavala was called up in a corresponding move to back up James McCann.
Castillo (head) was placed on the injured list Saturday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. It was reported Friday that Castillo was not in the concussion protocol, but perhaps that has changed. He will be out through the end of May. Seby Zavala was promoted from Triple-A Charlotte in a corresponding move.
Castillo is not in the concussion protocol, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Castillo had to leave Friday night's contest after taking a foul tip to the mask, but according to skipper Rick Renteria, he's managed to avoid being placed in the concussion protocol. Castillo will be considered day-to-day until further notice.
Castillo was lifted from Friday's game against the Twins after he took a foul tip off his catcher's mask, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. The White Sox have yet to disclose the nature of Castillo's issue, though it appears to be a head injury. He'll likely have to pass through concussion protocol if this is the case.
Castillo went 2-for-3 with a double, a solo home run and two runs scored in Monday's 5-2 win over Cleveland. Castillo, who opened the season as the primary catcher, has fallen behind James McCann on the depth chart and needs more showings like Monday to get back the playing time he's lost. Monday's two-hit effort moved his average up to .186.
