Twins' Jason Castro: Expects normal offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro anticipates that he'll have a normal offseason workout program after undergoing surgery May 15 to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Castro has been ruled out for the season and won't be able to walk without the aid of crutches until later this month, but he's confident that his recovery from the major knee procedure won't affect his availability for spring training. The backstop is familiar with the extensive rehab associated with the injury, as he torn the same meniscus and also recovered from an ACL tear during his time in Houston. Castro will enter the final season of his three-year contract in 2019 and could retain the top spot on the depth chart if Mitch Garver fails to distinguish himself in the primary role over the rest of the current campaign.

Twins' Jason Castro: Transferred to 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro (knee) was moved to the 60-day disabled list Thursday, Brandon Warne of Zone Coverage reports.

Castro was transferred over in order to make room for Trevor May (elbow) on the active 40-man roster. This was merely a housekeeping transaction as Castro is set to miss the remainder of the 2018 season following a surgical procedure to repair his torn meniscus in mid-May.

Twins' Jason Castro: Will miss rest of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro (knee) will be out for the rest of the 2018 season following Wednesday's surgery to repair his torn meniscus, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

During the procedure, it became clear that Castro's meniscus was in worse condition than initial tests led on and the doctors decided to complete a full repair of his meniscus, which will keep the catcher on the shelf until 2019. In his place, Mitch Garver will likely see a majority of the starts behind the plate, though Bobby Wilson should receive a decent amount of playing time as well.

Twins' Jason Castro: Set for knee surgery Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro will undergo surgery on his right knee in Colorado on Tuesday, Brandon Warne of The Athletic Minnesota reports.

Castro is dealing with a torn meniscus in his right knee. While he was originally hoping to avoid surgery after receiving a cortisone shot, a visit with knee specialist Dr. Robert LaPrade determined the backstop's injury would require surgery to repair. He's expected to be sidelined for around 4-to-6 weeks following surgery, which would line him up for a return sometime during the second half of June. In the meantime, Mitch Garver and Bobby Wilson will continue to split duties behind the dish in his absence.

Twins' Jason Castro: Set to see knee specialist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro's knee injury "is probably not progressing as much as we had hoped," said manager Paul Molitor, and Castro will visit with knee specialist Dr. Robert LaPrade on Monday in Colorado, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Castro has a torn meniscus in his right knee. It was initially thought he'd avoid surgery after receiving a cortisone shot, but it now sounds like an extended absence is a possibility. Mitch Garver will remain the Twins' primary catcher, with Bobby Wilson working as the backup catcher.
