Tigers' Harold Castro: Starting after all
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro will start at first base and bat ninth Sunday against the White Sox, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Castro wasn't included in the Tigers' initial lineup for the series finale, but he'll end up cracking the starting nine after Jonathan Schoop was scratched with a sore left hand. Assuming Schoop's injury proves to be a minor concern, Castro will likely transition back into a utility role in the infield during the upcoming week.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's matchup with the White Sox.

Castro will get a breather with Chicago sending lefty Carlos Rodon to the mound. Isaac Paredes will man the hot corner and bat seventh in the series finale.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Smacks first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 15-2 blowout loss to the White Sox.

Castro accounted for both of Detroit's runs when he took White Sox starter Dylan Cease deep in the first inning. The 27-year-old Castro was also called upon to mop up an inning in the laugher, and he didn't allow a baserunner in the ninth. The utility man has a .290/.333/.327 slash line with one homer, 13 RBI and seven runs scored across 115 plate appearances. Despite the solid on-base skills, his lack of both power and an everyday role greatly limits Castro's fantasy impact.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Back in action Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro (hand) is starting at third base and batting second Friday versus the White Sox.

The 27-year-old was a late scratch from Wednesday's lineup with a right hand injury, but it's apparently a minor issue given his quick return to the starting nine. Castro has a .306 average through 106 plate appearances, though his lack of pop (one extra-base hit) limits his offensive value.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Late scratch Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro was scratched from Wednesday's lineup against the Mariners due to a right hand injury, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Castro hurt his right hand during pregame warmups, and he'll be replaced by Isaac Paredes at third base. The 27-year-old is being examined by team doctors, and a better idea of his status going forward could be revealed once the examination is complete.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Draws third straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro will start at second base and bat second Thursday against Cleveland.

Castro saw a five-game streak with multiple hits come to an end Wednesday with an 0-for-4 showing in the Tigers' 1-0 win, but it won't stop him from getting a third consecutive start. He'll be filling in at second base while the usual starter at the position, Willi Castro, gets a turn as the Tigers' designated hitter.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Knocks in three
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro went 3-for-5 with three RBI in Wednesday's 6-2 victory over the Mariners.

All three of Castro's hits were singles, but they came at opportune times and helped him drive in half of Detroit's runs in the win. He has been red hot at the plate over his past three games, going 8-for-13 with seven singles and a double. The scorching stretch has pushed his batting average up to a standout .343 on the season.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Paces team with three hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored Tuesday in the Tigers' 5-0 win over the Mariners.

Castro has now turned in multi-hit efforts in five of his last seven contests, lifting his season average to .323. Given that the Detroit offense that's been one of MLB's least productive units this season, Castro could be in store for an enhanced role while he's wielding a hot bat.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Scores run Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Sunday's loss against the Cubs.

Castro has hit safely in five of his last six games while recording two or more knocks in four of those appearances. He's hitting .354 with four RBI and two runs scored across 31 at-bats this month.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Royals.

Castro had started three of the past four games for Detroit, producing eight hits -- all singles -- in 14 at-bats over that stretch. The 27-year-old still looks set to remain in a utility role for the time being, but he could get a longer trial in an everyday role if primary second baseman Willi Castro (.570 OPS) continues to languish.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Starting again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro is starting at shortstop and batting second in Sunday's game against the Twins.

Castro started in center field Saturday and went 3-for-4, and the Tigers will reward him with another start in the series finale. The 27-year-old is batting .302 so far this season, so he could continue to earn playing time at the expense of players such as Niko Goodrum, who is on the bench Sunday, and Willi Castro.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Records three hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Saturday's win over the Twins.

Castro has posted back-to-back three-hit games, and those two appearances have allowed him to leave a 3-for-20 slump in the rearview. The utility man is hitting .302 in 2021.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Productive in Thursday loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro went 3-for-5 with a run scored and two RBI in Thursday's loss to the Red Sox.

Making the start at second base, Castro recorded his second three-hit performance of the season. The 27-year-old is more of a utility player off the bench at this point, though Detroit is in need of all the offensive production it can muster, so Castro could earn more playing time if he gets hot at the plate.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro is starting at second base and batting fifth in Sunday's game against the Yankees.

Willi Castro heads to the bench Sunday, with Niko Goodrum getting the start at shortstop and Harold Castro entering the lineup at second. The latter is slashing .226/.314/.226 through 16 games, which is well below the .347/.407/.429 line he posted across 22 games last season.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro is starting at second base and batting seventh in Saturday's game against the Royals.

Castro gets the nod at second with the slumping Niko Goodrum heading to the bench. Castro is batting .294 in limited action this year, but he also batted .347 last year and .291 back in 2019, so the 27-year-old has shown that he's capable of collecting plenty of hits at the MLB level.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Collects three hits, two RBI Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro went 3-for-4 with two RBI in Sunday's loss to the Athletics.

Castro collected half of the team's hits and drove in both Detroit runs, which were his first two RBI of the season. The utility man hasn't been playing a ton, as he came into Sunday with only 10 at-bats, but he's shown himself to be a capable hitter when given opportunities, as he posted a .291 batting average in 2019 and a .347 mark last season in a reserve role.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Enters lineup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro is starting at first base and batting seventh in Sunday's game against Cleveland.

Castro will be making his first start of the season in Sunday's series finale. New Detroit manager A.J. Hinch has preached the need for versatility, so Castro figures to pick up starts all over the field this year. He'll get first base Sunday with Miguel Cabrera out of the lineup after experiencing cramps in Saturday's game.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Makes Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro has been informed that he'll make the Tigers' Opening Day roster, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Castro was competing for a roster spot with Renato Nunez during camp, but Nunez was informed Saturday that he won't begin the season on the major-league roster. As a result, Castro will secure a bench role for Detroit to begin the year. The 27-year-old has hit .250 with two doubles and four RBI over 17 spring games.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Still in mix for roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro is still in the mix for an Opening Day roster spot, as the 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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.
