Tigers' Willi Castro: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro was optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Sunday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Castro made enough of an impression early in spring training that manager Rod Gardenhire indicated he could see time at shortstop for the Tigers at some point this season. Nonetheless, the 21-year-old will begin the season at Triple-A, where he saw five games of action in 2018 after a late-season promotion.

Tigers' Willi Castro: Getting positive reviews in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro has been drawing praise from manager Ron Gardenhire this spring and he could factor into the team's plans at shortstop at some point this season, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Gardenhire was complimentary of Castro, saying the 21-year-old is "a good-looking baseball player." The Tigers currently have Jordy Mercer installed at shortstop but if the team struggles, the veteran Mercer is a candidate to get moved before the deadline. The could open the door for Castro, who got his first taste of Triple-A action toward the end of last season.

Tigers' Willi Castro: Sent to Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro was shipped from Cleveland to Detroit in exchange for Leonys Martin and Kyle Dowdy on Tuesday, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.

The 21-year-old has hit just .245/.303/.350 in 97 games for Double-A Akron this season. He projects to combine a solid glove with decent contact skills and a bit of speed but does not have any standout tools.
