Castro (back) is not in the lineup Sunday against the Royals, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Castro is out of the lineup after exiting Saturday's contest with lower-back tightness, and he'll be available off the bench only in an emergency. Brandon Dixon receives the start at first base for the Tigers on Sunday.
Castro was removed from Saturday's game against the Royals with lower-back tightness.
Castro went 1-for-3 with a run and appeared uncomfortable during his final plate appearance. According to Evan Woodbery of MLive.com, it's a minor issue for the 26-year-old, and he may be available to play in Sunday's series finale.
Castro went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a walk in a 5-2 win over the Indians on Saturday.
Castro extended his hitting streak to seven games. The 26-year-old is coming on strong, slashing .355/.412/.484 over his past 15 games.
Castro is starting at third base and batting fifth in Saturday's game against Cleveland.
Isaac Paredes will get a breather Saturday, which opens up third base for Castro. The versatile 26-year-old is slashing .281/.361/.375 through 16 games so far this season.
Castro (hamstring) will be activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Friday's game against the Indians, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Castro has been on the shelf since Aug. 18 due to a hamstring injury, and after suffering a minor setback earlier this month, he's been cleared to return. He was slashing .276/.364/.379 with three doubles and an RBI over 15 contests prior to suffering the injury.
Manager Ron Gardenhire said Tuesday that Castro is dealing with some tightness in his right hamstring, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Castro was getting close to making his return from the injured list after dealing with a left hamstring strain, but he felt some tightness in his right hamstring recently that will keep him sidelined for several more days. The setback isn't believed to be serious, and Gardenhire said that Castro's getting close to being ready to return to game action.
Castro (hamstring) is performing all baseball activities, recently adding baserunning, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.
Castro has been out for two weeks with a left hamstring strain, but he appears to be closing in on a return. He filled just a part-time role prior to the injury and will presumably be used similarly once healthy.
Castro was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left hamstring strain Wednesday.
Castro left Tuesday's game against the White Sox with the injury, which is evidently serious enough to keep him out for at least 10 days. Whether or not he'll need more time beyond that remains to be seen. He filled just a part-time role during his time with the team, so his absence won't shake up the Tigers' depth chart very much.
Castro was removed from Tuesday's game against the White Sox with left hamstring tightness.
The 26-year-old went 1-for-3 and appeared to sustain the injury while running out his fifth-inning grounder, since he was replaced in the field for the bottom of the frame. Castro should be considered day-to-day until more is known on the injury.
Castro went 3-for-4 with a double, two singles, one walk and two runs scored in Sunday's 8-5 loss to the Indians.
The utilityman is now slashing a solid .278/.328/.407 after reaching base four times Sunday. His versatility was also on full display as he moved from right field to third base in the fifth and then back to right field an inning later. Expect Castro to continue to see sporadic playing time at multiple positions moving forward.
Castro is starting in right field and batting second in Sunday's game against Cleveland.
Both Victor Reyes and Cameron Maybin are out of the lineup Sunday, setting the versatile Castro up for a start in the outfield. The 26-year-old has so far been unable to replicate his success from 2019, as he's slashing just .182/.280/.227 through 13 games this season.
Castro is starting at third base and batting sixth in Sunday's game against the Reds.
The versatile 26-year-old will be making his first start of the season. Last year, Castro saw time at seven different positions in the field, including 10 games at third base. He put together a .291/.305/.384 slash line and figures to get plenty of playing time in 2020 if he continues to hit well.
Castro is 7-for-11 with three doubles, three runs scored and four RBI in intrasquad action, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Castro turned some heads by batting .291 in 97 games for the Tigers last season, and the 26-year-old is out to prove that that performance was no fluke. Castro can play all over the field for the Tigers, and his versatility and ability to make solid contact should afford him plenty of playing time, even if he's not a regular at any one position.
Castro figures to work in a utility role for the Tigers this year and his versatility could be particularly helpful during the condensed season, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.
Before play was suspended, Castro was already looking at a utility role, but Stavenhagen notes that such a role could be especially valuable in a year that could feature some unique lineups as teams cram in 60 games. Castro posted a solid .291/.305/.384 slash line in 2019, and if he can parlay his success into more playing time, he could be a sneaky fantasy contributor in 2020.
Castro is competing for one of the Tigers' final roster spots when the 2020 regular season begins, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Castro is jockeying to be Detroit's 25th or 26th player now that rosters have expanded heading into 2020. The 26-year-old played well in 97 games at the big-league level last season, posting a .291/.305/.384 slash line along with five home runs and four stolen bases. His ability to play multiple positions in the infield and outfield makes him a useful part of an MLB roster, though he may not play enough to be a reliable fantasy factor.
Castro (ankle) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Castro sustained the ankle injury during Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader and did not see the field during the nightcap. Jordy Mercer will cover the keystone in his place Sunday.
Castro is out of the lineup for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the White Sox due to an ankle injury, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Castro suffered the injury during the matinee on a play at first base, though he never exited the contest and finished 0-for-4 with three strikeouts. There's a decent chance the 25-year-old is done for the year with the regular season coming to an end Sunday. Gordon Beckham will take over at the keystone during the nightcap.
Castro is not in Thursday's lineup against the Twins.
He is hitting .333 with one home run and zero steals in 21 games this month. Ronny Rodriguez will start at second base and hit cleanup.
Castro is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Orioles.
Jordy Mercer will fill in at second base while Castro rests after turning in a productive first half of September. Over his 11 starts this month, Castro has delivered multiple hits in eight of those contests, including each of his last five games. Castro's .305 average this season leads all Tigers hitters.
Castro went 3-for-5 with a run scored in Sunday's 8-2 loss to the Orioles.
It's been a tough season for the 44-104 Tigers, but Castro has been a bright spot. The 25-year-old is now batting .305 and has shown good defensive versatility, having appeared at every position except for pitcher and catcher, which should keep him in Detroit's plans moving forward.
