Astros' Jason Castro looking for first hit against lefty

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/20/15) Astros catcher Jason Castro has hit .320/.433/.480 against righties but is just 0 for 5 with one walk against left-handed pitchers this season.

Castro has hit just .197/.252/.301 with six home runs in 319 at-bats against southpaws in his career, and he has continued to struggles in the early part of this season. The Astros are slated to face three lefty starters in a four-game span, starting Wednesday against J.A. Happ.

Astros' Jason Castro has no HRs or RBI through first five games

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/13/15) Astros catcher Jason Castro has hit safely in four straight games since going hitless in his first game of the season. However, he doesn't have a home run or RBI through his first five appearances.

After one week, Castro is batting .294 (5 for 17) with one double, three runs, four walks and four strikeouts. 

Castro is a career .247 hitter in March/April. He also has five home runs, 14 doubles and 23 RBI in 65 games in March/April.

Astros' Hinch: Jason Casto 'a well-rounded player'

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/30/15) Catcher Jason Castro is the longest-tenured member of the Astros and optimistic about the direction of the team, MLB.com reports.

"It's a great time for this organization," Castro said. "It's exciting to have been here and weathered the storm a little bit through the middle of that and see it through to the other side. It's exciting and hopefully we can play up to the type of baseball we're capable of playing. We have some guys in here who can do some pretty special things on the baseball field."

Manager A.J. Hinch is a fan of the different things Castro brings to the lineup and behind the plate.

"Jason's a well-rounded player," Hinch said. "There's a reason he's an All-Star, there's a reason he can contribute in every facet of the game. For us, being a left-handed bat, we have some right-handed bats that we're going to rely upon… and he'll offer us something different than those that hit in front of him. I like his balance, his composure, his steadiness of how he approaches the game. I look forward to his leadership. As he's entering these years of his career, he's got a track record under his belt to provide some steady leadership and have a good year for us."

Castro is 9 for 34 with two home runs this spring.

Astros' Jason Castro getting results following offseason changes

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/23/15) Astros manager A.J. Hinch said over the weekend he was impressed with catcher Jason Castro, who has put together a strong spring at the plate coming off a down season in 2014. On Monday, it was Castro's turn to talk about his own performance and he seems just as pleased with his progress.

He is batting .280 (7 for 25) with two home runs, three doubles and five RBI in 10 games. One of those home runs came off Nationals starting pitcher Max Scherzer on Friday.

“Very happy with some of the adjustments that I was trying to make this offseason,” Castro said, per the Houston Chronicle. “At this point I’ve done the things that I’ve kind of wanted to do coming into spring training. Just to kind of check those boxes before this season starts.

“I feel like I’m at the point now where I’m pretty quiet (with my mechanics). I get into position to where I basically read the pitch and then just react. And that’s something I couldn’t really do last year. I had to, in order for me to kind of compensate for some kind of inefficiencies and mechanics in my swing, I had to look for a certain pitch in order to get to it. So it kind of threw me off on other stuff. I’m pretty happy with that aspect of it: being able to just read pitches, not having to cheat, being able to lay off stuff that I don’t want to swing at.”

Astros' Hinch: Jason Castro has swung the bat very well this spring

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/21/15) Astros catcher Jason Castro was hitless in three at-bats Saturday against the Yankees, but despite the off day, he's had a pretty productive spring at the plate. He is batting .280 (7 for 25) with two home runs, three doubles and five RBI in 10 games.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch has noticed the progress Castro has made following a down year in 2014.

"He’s swung the bat very well this spring," Hinch said, per the Houston Chronicle. "His timing is good, his rhythm is good, he’s been hitting the ball on the barrel."
