Castro (hamstring) will kick off his rehab assignment Friday, Sweeny Murti of Sports Radio 66 WFAN reports. Castro has been out since July 21 and was forced to skip the All-Star game due to the injury. He had a fantastic first half with a .307 average, 12 homers, 45 RBI and 52 runs, so he'll be a welcomed addition to the Yankees' lineup once he receives the all-clear to return to the Bronx.
Castro (hamstring) fielded grounders Saturday and is planning to run the bases Sunday, George A. King of the New York Post reports. Castro has been able to ramp up his activity to light running and batting practices in the past week, so it seems like he may be nearing the final hurdles of his recovery before being cleared to set out on a rehab assignment. The second baseman reported no issues with his hamstring that landed him on the disabled list toward the end of July, so Castro may be able to return after just about a month on the shelf.
Castro (hamstring) is expected to begin a rehab assignment sometime next week, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. Castro was able to take batting practice Tuesday for the first time since landing on the disabled list July 22, and apparently everything went without a hitch as he now has a rehab stint in sight. He'll likely need a few games in the minors before rejoining the big club, so he probably won't be back until next weekend, at the earliest. In the meantime, Ronald Torreyes will continue to man second base in his stead.
Castro (hamstring) was able to participate in both light running and batting practice Tuesday, Erik Boland of Newsday reports. Castro was able to begin running last week, but this marked the first time the second baseman took swings since landing on the disabled list over two weeks ago. He'll likely need to embark on a brief rehab stint before rejoining the major-league squad, though there's still no timeline for the rest of his recovery. Ronald Torreyes figures to continue seeing the bulk of the starts at the keystone in Castro's stead.
Castro (hamstring) did some light running on the field Friday, Mike Mazzeo of the New York Daily News reports. This is an important early step in the rehab for a hamstring ailment, and manager Joe Girardi also added that Castro had been hitting off a tee. The second baseman remains without a firm timetable though, but it could become a bit clearer as he continues to gradually ramp up the baseball activities.
