Castro went 3-for-5 with a run scored in Sunday's 8-2 loss to the Orioles. It's been a tough season for the 44-104 Tigers, but Castro has been a bright spot. The 25-year-old is now batting .305 and has shown good defensive versatility, having appeared at every position except for pitcher and catcher, which should keep him in Detroit's plans moving forward.
Castro went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, two walks and an additional run Saturday in the Tigers' 8-4 win over the Orioles in 12 innings. Castro has now turned in multi-hit efforts in four straight games and in seven of his last eight starts, lifting his season-long batting average from .276 to .300 during the heat wave. The 25-year-old has slotted in first or second in the Tigers' batting order in each of his starts dating back to Aug. 31 and should continue to occupy a prominent spot over the final two weeks of the season.
Castro went 3-for-5 with two runs scored and an RBI in Tuesday's 12-11 win over the Yankees. All three hits for Castro were singles, which isn't too surprising considering he had four singles in a game Saturday. The 25-year-old has just 16 extra-base hits in 300 at-bats this season, though it's hard to complain too much given his .293 batting average.
Castro is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Athletics. Castro will take a seat as the Tigers go with a more righty-heavy lineup to counter Athletics southpaw Sean Manaea. The 25-year-old has slashed just .222/.236/.222 (18 wRC+) versus left-handed pitching this season.
Castro went 4-for-5 with two RBI in Saturday's 10-2 loss to the Athletics. As has often been the case this season, Castro showed good contact skills at the plate with little power, as all four of his hits were singles. The 25-year-old batted first in this one, and he could get more looks in the leadoff spot given his style of play.
