      Tigers' Harold Castro: Makes Opening Day roster

      Tigers' Harold Castro: Still in mix for roster

      Harold Castro is still in the mix for an Opening Day roster spot, as the Detroit Tigers may carry him and Niko Goodrum as utility players, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.The Tigers optioned Isaac Paredes to the minors Thursday and informed Greg Garcia he won't make the team, and both moves improve Castro's chances of earning a bench role. Conventional wisdom around camp has been that Paredes and Renato Nunez were battling for one role, so it's unclear how Castro fits into the mix after Thursday's cutdown.

      Tigers' Harold Castro: Might be squeezed from roster

      Harold Castro could find himself left off the Opening Day roster, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.The strong play of Rule 5 draft pick Akil Baddoo is a bad development for Castro. The Detroit Tigers have to keep Baddoo on the roster or give him back to the division-rival Twins, so he will likely be a fifth outfielder who makes the team. Detroit also has Niko Goodrum in a utility role, and Renato Nunez, Nomar Mazara and Grayson Greiner all figure to earn bench spots as well. That likely leaves Castro as the odd man out, at least to begin the season. The 27-year-old had a strong .347/.407/.429 slash line in 22 games last year, so he's capable of producing if he's able to get some time in the majors at some point in 2021.

      Tigers' Harold Castro: Mediocre this spring

      Harold Castro has posted a .227/.261/.318 slash line through his first 22 Grapefruit League at-bats.Castro hasn't done much in spring training but he was also quiet last spring before posting a .347/.407/.429 line across 22 regular-season games. The 27-year-old should secure a utility role with the Detroit Tigers this year, and he has the ability to play across the infield and in the outfield, giving him some fantasy upside if he's able to secure regular playing time at some point.

      Tigers' Harold Castro: Competing for bench role

      Harold Castro will compete with the likes of Akil Baddoo and potentially Isaac Paredes for a roster spot out of spring training, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.Castro's role depends on how new manager A.J. Hinch decides to construct the roster. If Baddoo makes the team as a fifth outfielder, Castro could get squeezed. Paredes is also an option to play third base if Jeimer Candelario shifts over to first, which would further cloud the picture for Castro. The 27-year-old did impress with a .347/.407/.429 line in 22 games last season, so that should help his cause, and he has the versatility to play multiple positions in the infield and outfield.
