Castro (wrist) was transferred to the 45-day injured list Saturday. The 30-year-old fractured his right wrist Aug. 14 and elected to undergo surgery shortly thereafter. Castro hasn't been provided an official timetable for his return, but he won't be eligible to be activated until the end of September.
Castro will have surgery to repair his broken right wrist, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. Castro broke his wrist while making a diving play Friday, and the injury should sideline him for the remainder of the regular season. The 30-year-old told manager Dave Martinez that he'd be ready if the Nationals were to make the playoffs. Luis Garcia should continue to see the bulk of the playing time at second base.

Castro underwent X-rays after hurting his wrist while making a diving play Friday, and he'll be sidelined as a result.

Castro went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Mets. His eighth-inning blast was too little, too late for the Nats in an 11-6 loss. Castro's impressive .304/.328/.500 slash line has only resulted in two homers and four RBI through 15 games, but the veteran infielder has scored nine runs to bolster his fantasy value.
