|(9/20/14) Cubs catcher Welington Castillo is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Dodgers.

Welington Castillo leaves game with rib injury

|(9/19/14) Cubs catcher Welington Castillo left Friday's game with a rib injury.
Castillo was pulled in the bottom of the first inning, and did not receive a plate appearance. He was replaced by Rafael Lopez.
|2014 summary: Welington Castillo hit as many home runs (13) as Jonathan Lucroy and Miguel Montero, and in considerably fewer at-bats, but it's no coincidence that the Cubs' catcher is a relatively obscure Fantasy option while Lucroy and Montero were mixed-league mainstays. Castillo hasn't played quite as regularly as many other starting catchers, and perhaps because he has been embedded in a meek Cubs lineup he hasn't been a robust run producer. Even though Castillo showed decent power for his position, he barely cracked the top 30 among catchers in Fantasy value.
Playing time status: Castillo got steady playing time in his second full season as the Cubs' primary catcher, though a midseason ribcage injury prevented him from topping the 428 plate appearances he logged in 2013. Castillo is heading into this season healthy, but it could all be for naught unless he is dealt, as the Cubs acquired Montero to be their starting catcher this offseason.
2015 outlook: Should Castillo latch on as some team's primary catcher, even with more playing time, his upside is that of a No. 2 catcher in a standard mixed Rotisserie league. He simply strikes out too often, and last season's .237 batting average is a better indicator of what to expect this season than the .274 mark he posted in 2013.
