Castro went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Sunday's loss against the Cubs. Castro has hit safely in five of his last six games while recording two or more knocks in four of those appearances. He's hitting .354 with four RBI and two runs scored across 31 at-bats this month.
Castro is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Royals. Castro had started three of the past four games for Detroit, producing eight hits -- all singles -- in 14 at-bats over that stretch. The 27-year-old still looks set to remain in a utility role for the time being, but he could get a longer trial in an everyday role if primary second baseman Willi Castro (.570 OPS) continues to languish.
Castro is starting at shortstop and batting second in Sunday's game against the Twins. Castro started in center field Saturday and went 3-for-4, and the Tigers will reward him with another start in the series finale. The 27-year-old is batting .302 so far this season, so he could continue to earn playing time at the expense of players such as Niko Goodrum, who is on the bench Sunday, and Willi Castro.
Castro went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Saturday's win over the Twins. Castro has posted back-to-back three-hit games, and those two appearances have allowed him to leave a 3-for-20 slump in the rearview. The utility man is hitting .302 in 2021.
Castro went 3-for-5 with a run scored and two RBI in Thursday's loss to the Red Sox. Making the start at second base, Castro recorded his second three-hit performance of the season. The 27-year-old is more of a utility player off the bench at this point, though Detroit is in need of all the offensive production it can muster, so Castro could earn more playing time if he gets hot at the plate.
