Astros C Jason Castro powers up for fifth home run on Tuesday

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/20/15) Astros catcher Jason Castro put the proverbial icing on the cake in Tuesday's win over the A's. Castro launched his fifth home run of the season in the bottom of the eighth inning. The solo shot gave the Astros a 6-2 lead; they would go on to win 6-4. 

Castro went 2 for 4 on the evening, and is hitting .256 with three homers and three RBI in 13 games played this month.

Astros catcher Jason Castro showing strong development

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/19/15) Astros catcher Jason Castro has been able to turn the corner a bit this season for Houston, according to the Houston Chronicle.

The catcher has dropped his strikeout rate from 29.5 percent to 20 percent and is walking at a higher clip than last year.

"I knew after last year I wanted to cut the strikeout rate down, and then, how you go about that obviously is kind of difficult," Castro said. "I've tried to be a little more selective this year and not try to kind of force at-bats, I guess."

He noted his difficulty staying balanced at the plate in 2014.

"The (mechanical) adjustment allowed me to get to more pitches," Castro said. "The biggest thing for me was, I was having a hard time last year getting to a pitch kind of more up in the zone.

"Last year I was… off balance when I was swinging. And it created kind of a loop in my swing, so I was not able to get to balls up in the zone, almost like swinging up through the zone. So I tried to kind of balance that out somewhat."

Hank Conger replaces Jason Castro in Astros' lineup

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/17/15) Astros catcher Jason Castro was held out of the starting lineup for the second straight day. 

Hank Conger gets his tenth start of the season behind the plate, hitting eighth in the lineup. 

Shortstop Jonathan Villar also got his eighth start of the season, replacing Marwin Gonzalez

Astros C Jason Castro goes yard in loss to Giants

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/12/15) Astros catcher Jason Castro was the only bright spot in his club's loss to San Francisco on Tuesday.

Castro took Chris Heston deep for a solo home run in the second inning. It was one of the two hits Heston permitted on the night. He finished 1 for 3 with a run scored and an RBI in an 8-1 defeat. He is hitting .224 (19 for 85) with three homers, six RBI and a .295 on-base percentage this season.

Astros DH Evan Gattis not in Sunday's lineup

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/10/15) Astros designated hitter Evan Gattis is not in Sunday's starting lineup against the Angels. 

For Gattis, it's most likely a day off. Against the Angels on Saturday, Gattis went 0 for 3 at the plate. He holds just a .185 batting average so far this season. Preston Tucker will serve as Houston's DH against the Angels. 

Robbie Grossman will play in left field and bat ninth. After taking Saturday off, catcher Jason Castro returns to the lineup and will bat sixth. Castro has recorded a hit in eight of his last 10 games.
