Tigers' Harold Castro: Will return Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Suffers minor setback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Performing baseball activites
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Leaves with hamstring tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Reaches base four times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

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

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.

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

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.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Hot start to camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Utility role likely on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Vying for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Remains out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Out Game 2 with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Sitting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

September 16, 2019 02:32 PM
Tigers' Harold Castro: Sits out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Three hits, run in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Fourth straight multi-hit effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, two walks and an additional run Saturday in the Tigers' 8-4 win over the Orioles in 12 innings.

Castro has now turned in multi-hit efforts in four straight games and in seven of his last eight starts, lifting his season-long batting average from .276 to .300 during the heat wave. The 25-year-old has slotted in first or second in the Tigers' batting order in each of his starts dating back to Aug. 31 and should continue to occupy a prominent spot over the final two weeks of the season.

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

Castro went 3-for-5 with two runs scored and an RBI in Tuesday's 12-11 win over the Yankees.

All three hits for Castro were singles, which isn't too surprising considering he had four singles in a game Saturday. The 25-year-old has just 16 extra-base hits in 300 at-bats this season, though it's hard to complain too much given his .293 batting average.

September 8, 2019 03:00 PM
Tigers' Harold Castro: Getting day off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Athletics.

Castro will take a seat as the Tigers go with a more righty-heavy lineup to counter Athletics southpaw Sean Manaea. The 25-year-old has slashed just .222/.236/.222 (18 wRC+) versus left-handed pitching this season.

September 8, 2019 12:44 AM
Tigers' Harold Castro: Collects four hits Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro went 4-for-5 with two RBI in Saturday's 10-2 loss to the Athletics.

As has often been the case this season, Castro showed good contact skills at the plate with little power, as all four of his hits were singles. The 25-year-old batted first in this one, and he could get more looks in the leadoff spot given his style of play.
