  • Castro is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles. Castro has been hot lately, slashing .367/.375/.533 across his last 10 games, but he'll get a day off Sunday. Detroit activated both Austin Meadows (illness) and Victor Reyes (quadriceps) before the game, and the two are starting in the outfield along with Robbie Grossman. Castro should still see some playing time if he continues to hit, but he now has more competition for starts.

  • Castro went 1-for-3 with a double, a run scored and an RBI in Friday's win over the Orioles. Castro has been rolling lately, as he's 8-for-18 across his past five games with an RBI and three runs scored. The 25-year-old started in left field Friday, with Derek Hill getting center. With Akil Baddoo at Triple-A, it looks like Castro will continue to serve as something of a utility outfielder, and he should see regular starts while he's hot at the plate.

  • Castro went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Thursday's loss to the Athletics. Making his fourth consecutive start, Castro kept producing at the plate, as he's gone 7-for-15 during this stretch. He's not quite yet an everyday player, but the 25-year-old is getting an extended look, and he could continue to push Derek Hill for time in center field. Castro is now batting .325 on the season across 16 games.

  • Castro will start in center field and bat seventh in Thursday's game against the Athletics. Castro will stick in the lineup for the fourth game in a row, with all of his starts coming in the outfield during that stretch. Though Castro hasn't yet established himself as an everyday player, manager A.J. Hinch will likely continue to keep the 25-year-old in the lineup while he's one of the few hitters on the roster swinging a hot bat. Over his last three starts, Castro has gone 5-for-11 with a walk and a run.

  • Castro went 5-for-7 with a walk and a run scored across both games of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Athletics. Castro got the start in left field for Game 1, then shifted over to center for the second game. The 25-year-old used to primarily play in the infield, though he's expanded his defensive versatility, which has helped him earn more playing time. With Akil Baddoo recently demoted to Triple-A, Castro and his .344 batting average may see more outfield run moving forward, though Derek Hill is still the presumptive starter in center, with Robbie Grossman and Austin Meadows in the corners.
