|Jason Castro a no-go for Tuesday game |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(7/8/14) Pain in the left armpit area has Astros catcher Jason Castro sidelined for the Tuesday night game in Texas. He was out Monday as well. He has reported that he feels better and could pinch-hit.
Castro will return on a four-game hitting streak. He has seven hits in his last 17 at-bats.
|Pressed into big-league duty before he was ready in 2010 and then saddled by injuries in the two years that followed, Jason Castro, the Astros' top prospect not so long ago, was written off by most Fantasy owners prior to 2013. But he forced his way back into their collective consciousness with a breakthrough so impressive that it even earned him an All-Star nod. And if you think that was just a "well, somebody from the Astros had to make it" sort of pick, take a second look at his numbers. Then, remember this: He missed almost all of September with a cyst behind his right knee that ultimately required surgery. If he closes out the year healthy, there's a good chance he's a 20-homer, 40-double catcher, the majors' first since Brian McCann in 2008 and only its ninth ever. Not surprisingly, among full-time catchers, only Joe Mauer and Yadier Molina finished with a higher OPS than Castro's .835. Because most Fantasy owners perceive him to have come out of nowhere, Castro might not be a top-10 catcher on Draft Day, but those numbers suggest he has top-five potential. He'll have to prove his health again in spring training and keep up-and-comer Max Stassi at bay, but his pedigree suggests he's the real deal.
