Padres' Jason Castro: Starting Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro (jaw) will catch and bat ninth in Game 3 of the NLDS against the Dodgers on Thursday.

Castro left the final game of the regular season with a sprained jaw and hasn't played since. Whether that was due to the injury or simply because the Padres preferred Austin Nola as the everyday catcher isn't entirely clear.

Padres' Jason Castro: Diagnosed with sprained jaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro was diagnosed with a sprained jaw but should be ready for Wednesday's contest, Annie Heilbrunn of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Castro left Sunday's regular-season finale after taking a foul tip off the face mask, and he's dealing with a jaw injury. Manager Jayce Tingler said that he should be ready for Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series, but the team will need to see how he recovers prior to determining his status.

Padres' Jason Castro: Exits with trainer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro left Sunday's game against the Giants in the bottom of the sixth inning with an apparent injury, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Castro took a foul ball off his face mask and left the game after some discussion with the trainer. The severity of his injury isn't yet known, but his availability as catching depth for the AL Wild Card Series is now in question.

Padres' Jason Castro: Belts key double in Padres debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro went 1-for-5 with a double, a run and two RBI in a victory versus the Angels on Wednesday.

Though the Padres ultimately won the game by seven runs, it was a tight affair most of the way. Castro played a key role in turning the tide in the Padres' direction, striking a two-run double in the eighth inning to break a 3-3 tie. The hit was the backstop's first since the Angels traded him to San Diego on Sunday.

Padres' Jason Castro: Sent to San Diego
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro was acquired by the Padres from the Angels on Sunday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

The writing was on the wall when Castro was a late scratch from Sunday's lineup, and discussions apparently progressed quickly from there. The trade return remains unclear, but it will need to be a player or players in the Padres' 60-player pool, a player to be named later or cash considerations. Castro has a .708 OPS in 18 games and should operate as the Friars' primary backstop once he officially joins the team.

Angels' Jason Castro: Scratched amid trade talks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro was a late scratch for Sunday's game against the Mariners due to ongoing trade discussions, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

No agreement has been reached, but the Angels will play it safe and keep Castro on the bench ahead of Monday's trade deadline. The Padres appear to be the current favorites for a potential deal. Anthony Bemboom is starting in his place Sunday and would be in line for an increased role if a trade is completed.

Angels' Jason Castro: Late scratch Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro was scratched from Sunday's lineup against the Mariners, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Castro was slated to start behind the plate and bat eighth, but he was scratched shortly before first pitch for undisclosed reasons. Anthony Bemboom enters the lineup for the Halos in his place.

Angels' Jason Castro: Out of Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro is not in the lineup Saturday against the Mariners.

Angels' Jason Castro: Not starting second game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro isn't in the lineup for the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Astros.

Castro went 1-for-3 with one RBI, one run and one strikeout in the first game of the doubleheader, but he'll get a breather for Game 2. Anthony Bemboom will start at catcher in his place.

August 24, 2020 06:12 PM
Angels' Jason Castro: Takes seat Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro isn't starting Monday's game against the Astros.

Castro reached base in each of the past two games as he went 1-for-7 with two walks and two strikeouts during that time. However, he'll take a breather Monday with Anthony Bemboom starting behind the plate.

Angels' Jason Castro: Not in lineup Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro isn't starting Friday against the Athletics.

Castro returned to the starting nine Wednesday after battling neck stiffness, but he'll be on the bench for his second consecutive contest Friday. Max Stassi (knee) was placed on the 10-day injured list, which could free up more playing time for Castro in the coming days, but Anthony Bemboom will serve as the starting catcher Friday.

Angels' Jason Castro: Returns to action Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro (neck) is starting behind the plate and batting seventh Wednesday at San Francisco, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

The 33-year-old was absent from the lineup for the past five games due to neck stiffness, but he'll rejoin the starting nine Wednesday. Castro is off to a strong start in 2020 with an .855 OPS through 41 plate appearances.

Angels' Jason Castro: Sits for fifth straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro (neck) will be on the bench for the fifth straight game Tuesday against San Francisco.

Castro did appear off the bench in the first of those five contests but has been out with neck stiffness ever since. He's making progress, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports, but he'll need at least one more day. Anthony Bemboom will be the catcher Tuesday.

Angels' Jason Castro: Still sitting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro (neck) remains sidelined Monday against the Giants.

Castro sits for the fourth game in a row due to a stiff neck. Max Stassi remains the starter behind the plate.

August 16, 2020 02:52 PM
Angels' Jason Castro: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro (neck) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers.

Castro will sit for the third day in a row while he contends with a sore neck, allowing Max Stassi to make another start behind the plate. The Angels have brought up Anthony Bemboom from their alternate training site to provide another option behind the plate in the short term, so Castro could be a candidate for the injured list if he fails to show much improvement heading into Monday's series opener with the Giants.

Angels' Jason Castro: Battling minor neck issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro was originally supposed to be in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Dodgers but was scratched due to neck stiffness, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

It was unusual to see Castro out of the lineup against a righty as well as on the bench for two straight days. The issue is considered a minor one, so it's possible Castro returns for Sunday's contest. Max Stassi remains the starter behind the plate in his absence.

Angels' Jason Castro: Remains on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro will sit again Saturday against the Dodgers.

Castro has sat against all seven lefties the Angels have faced this season, but his off day Saturday comes against righty Walker Buehler. Max Stassi starts behind the plate against a right-hander for just the third time this season.

August 14, 2020 05:48 PM
Angels' Jason Castro: Not starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Dodgers.

Castro has the edge in starts behind the plate for the Angels this season, but it's quite a slim one. He's gotten the nod 11 times, while Max Stassi, who starts Friday, has started nine games.

Angels' Jason Castro: Belts second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run and a walk in a 6-0 win over Oakland on Tuesday.

Castro has been somewhat overshadowed by fellow backstop Max Stassi -- who has hit four home runs -- but the 33-year-old has been productive with a .267/.389/.600 slash line and five RBI. He broke open a one-run game Tuesday with a three-run shot to center field in the fourth inning, one of a trio of long balls by the Angels in the frame. Castro and Stassi should continue sharing time behind the plate moving forward; through 18 games, Castro has one more plate appearance than Stassi (36 to 35).

August 10, 2020 06:40 PM
Angels' Jason Castro: Not in Monday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro isn't in the lineup Monday against the Athletics.

Castro will retreat to the bench for the fourth time in the past six games after recording a double Sunday. Max Stassi will take over at catcher, batting eighth.
