Tigers' Harold Castro: On bench Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro is not in the lineup Monday against Astros.

Castro has started four of the past five games, going 6-for-16 with a home run and four RBI during that stretch. Ronny Rodriguez is starting at the keystone in his place.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Delivers fourth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and three RBI in Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay.

Castro left the yard in the first inning, depositing a ball over the fence in left field for a two-run blast. He would plate another run in the seventh on a sacrifice fly to center, though the Tigers would fall 5-4 in the series finale. Through 63 games this season, Castro is batting .283 with four homers, 28 RBI and three stolen bases.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Out of Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro is not in Saturday's lineup against the Rays.

He is hitting .246 with one home run and one steal in 57 at-bats this month. Niko Goodrum will start at second base, hitting cleanup.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Collects three hits in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro went 3-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Mariners.

Castro has shown some skills at the plate this season, and he's now batting .285 after the three-hit performance. The 25-year-old doesn't offer a ton of pop -- he has just a .687 OPS and three home runs through 60 games -- but he's certainly earned himself regular playing time on a Detroit team badly in need of any offensive output.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Leading off Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro is starting in center field and hitting first in Sunday's series finale against the Royals.

With JaCoby Jones hitting the injured list with a fractured wrist, Castro and Victor Reyes figure to pick up the slack in center field, with Castro also able to play some infield. The 25-year-old has a respectable .282 batting average through 58 games this season and figures to get some more chances as the leadoff hitter the rest of the way.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Launches three-run bomb in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro went 1-for-4 with a walk, a three-run home run and two runs scored in Thursday's 10-8 win over the Royals.

Castro has been a pleasant surprise for the Tigers, as he's now batting .281 through 56 games. He doesn't offer a ton of pop, with just a .688 OPS and three home runs, but the 25-year-old has earned himself regular playing time and could be worth a look in deep formats or daily contests.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Finding work near top of order
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro will serve as the Tigers' leadoff hitter and start in left field Wednesday against the White Sox.

The Tigers will give normal table setter JaCoby Jones a breather in the series finale, but Castro may not plummet precipitously in the order when both players are included in the lineup. Castro batted second in both ends of Tuesday's doubleheader and appears to have at least temporarily earned a prominent spot in the order after hitting .324 over his past nine starts.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Day off Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Angels, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Castro had started 15 of the last 17 games, appearing at five different positions. He's hit a respectable .313/.320/.424 over his last 24 contests.

July 27, 2019 02:24 PM
Tigers' Harold Castro: Not in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro is out of the lineup Saturday against the Mariners.

It appears to be just a routine day off for Castro, who has recorded a .143 on-base percentage with nine strikeouts over his last six games. Gordon Beckham is starting at second base, batting ninth.

July 25, 2019 05:36 PM
Tigers' Harold Castro: Gets breather
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro is not starting Thursday against the Mariners, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Castro will head to the bench after starting the past 11 games and going 13-for-48 (.271) with a home run and six RBI during that stretch. In his place, Niko Goodrum is starting at second base and hitting seventh.

July 18, 2019 11:20 PM
Tigers' Harold Castro: Hits second home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Indians.

In a tough season offensively for the Tigers, Castro has been a bright spot, as he's now batting .317 with a .783 OPS. The 25-year-old has just two home runs in 126 at-bats, so power isn't a huge part of his game, but his ability to get on base has been a welcome sight in Detroit. Expect Castro to keep getting regular playing time as long as he hits.

July 14, 2019 05:40 PM
Tigers' Harold Castro: Has four-hit game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro went 4-for-6 with a double, two runs scored and two RBI in Sunday's 12-8 win over the Royals.

Batting second, Castro found himself in a great spot to produce in a game that featured 19 Detroit hits. The versatile 25-year-old has earned regular playing time for the Tigers, and his bat should keep him in the lineup for the foreseeable future, as he's slashing .315/.333/.432 this season in 111 at-bats.

July 7, 2019 11:48 AM
Tigers' Harold Castro: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Though he lacks a clear path to an everyday role at any position, Castro had started each of the past nine games thanks to his versatility. He saw action at six different spots, including his first career start at first base in Saturday's 10-6 loss, when he went 3-for-4 with a walk. Expect Castro to continue seeing at least semi-regular work coming out of the All-Star break.

Tigers' Harold Castro: Doubles, scores twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro went 2-for-5 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored in Thursday's 11-5 win over the White Sox.

Castro has been decently productive when he's played this year, as he's batting .284, albeit with just a .671 OPS. The 25-year-old might be squeezed for time in the infield with the return of shortstop Jordy Mercer, but Castro is versatile enough to play all over the field, though the Tigers also have Niko Goodrum deployed in a utility capacity.

July 3, 2019 08:56 PM
Tigers' Harold Castro: Could lose work to Mercer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro will start in right field and bat sixth in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the White Sox.

The versatile Castro will stick in the lineup for a fifth straight contest while Nicholas Castellanos shifts over to designated hitter in place of a resting Miguel Cabrera. Though Castro has benefited from steady work of late, he's the most likely candidate to lose out on an everyday role with top shortstop Jordy Mercer (quadriceps) making his return from the 10-day injured list Wednesday. With Mercer back, Niko Goodrum projects to play second base on a regular basis, leaving no room for Castro at the position he's played most frequently this season.

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

Castro is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Indians, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Castro heads to the bench following seven straight starts, during which he produced five hits across 22 at-bats. Though Ronny Rodriguez will get the nod at second base Saturday, Castro appears to have emerged as the Tigers' primary option at the position for now. Castro could be at risk of moving into a utility role or may even be sent back to Triple-A Toledo once Jordy Mercer (quadriceps) is reinstated from the 10-day injured list, however.

June 19, 2019 11:36 PM
Tigers' Harold Castro: Collects two hits, first home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro went 2-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in Wednesday's 8-7 loss to the Pirates.

Castro singled home a run in the first inning, then followed a Brandon Dixon two-run shot in the third with a solo home run of his own, the first of his MLB career. The 25-year-old has been getting fairly regular playing time lately, and he's slashing .263/.295/.386 through 57 at-bats.

June 16, 2019 11:08 AM
Tigers' Harold Castro: Starting again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro is starting at second base and batting fifth in Sunday's series finale against Cleveland.

This will be the fourth straight start for Castro, who has primarily played at second base but has also gotten time at third and in the outfield. The 25-year-old is slashing just .229/.269/.271 through 17 games, but he should continue to get a look on a rebuilding Tigers team.

June 9, 2019 11:20 PM
Tigers' Harold Castro: Starting at second Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Castro did not start in Friday's series opener, but he started Saturday at third base and will now shift over to second for the series finale. The 25-year-old infielder has nine hits in 31 at-bats through 12 games at the MLB level this season, and he's stolen a base.

June 4, 2019 02:28 PM
Tigers' Harold Castro: Promoted to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro was recalled from Triple-A Toledo ahead of Tuesday's game against the Rays.

Castro appears to be over a minor oblique issue that kept him out of the big leagues near the end of May when the Tigers needed a middle infielder, so he'll replace Jeimer Candelario (shoulder), who was moved to the 10-day injured list Tuesday. Castro is 5-for-22 with a double over nine games this year with Detroit.
