Cubs SS Starlin Castro catching break Friday against Marlins
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/3/15) Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro has had successive multi-hit games for the first time in two weeks, but a third one is quite unlikely. He is on the bench for the Friday afternoon game against visiting Miami.
Castro has started all but two games at shortstop this season, but he has been fairly unproductive after a bounce-back season in 2014. He owns a slash line of .263/.298/.341 with just 26 runs scored as midseason approaches.
Cubs move Starlin Castro to leadoff spot Thursday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(7/2/15) For the first time this season, the Cubs will have shortstop Starlin Castro in the leadoff spot for Thursday's game at the New York Mets, reports MLB Lineups.
Castro will bat first instead of Dexter Fowler, who was given the day off. Over his last 12 games, Castro is hitting .239 with two doubles and four RBI.
The Cubs are the underdogs (+125) at New York on Thursday.
Cubs SS Starlin Castro gets two hits, RBI in win over Mets
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(7/1/15) Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro went 2 for 5 with a RBI in Wednesday's win over the Mets.
The multi-hit performance is Castro's fourth in his last 11 games. Over that stretch, he is hitting .256 with 11 hits and four RBI.
Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro scratched from lineup Thursday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/25/15) Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro was scratched from the starting lineup Thursday against the Dodgers for personal reasons, as his wife is due to give birth to the couple's second child. Addison Russell moved over from second base to start in Castro's absence.
Starlin Castro gets three hits for Cubs
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(6/21/15) Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro went 3 for 4, with a run scored and an RBI in Sunday's win over Minnesota.
Castro recorded his third multi-hit game and second three-hit game in the last seven. He hit a sacrifice fly for his 35th RBI of the year.
|2014 summary: At first glance, 2014 looked like a bounceback season for Starlin Castro. After experiencing across-the-board dips in 2013, Castro raised his batting average from .245 to .292, his home run total from 10 to 14 and his RBI total from 44 to 65. However, Castro barely reduced a strikeout per at-bat ratio that jumped nearly four percentage points the prior season (from 15.5 to 19.4 percent) and he stole just four bases in eight attempts. He finished 14th in standard Rotisserie and Head-to-Head value, and though Castro missed almost all of September with a high ankle sprain, he ranked just 12th in Fantasy points per game among shortstops with at least 300 at-bats.|
Playing time status: The Cubs plan to use Castro as their starting shortstop out of spring training, but Javier Baez and prospect Addison Russell loom as alternatives.
2015 outlook: Much of Castro's 2014 success resulted from hitting .273 on ground balls, but that may not be sustainable. Castro became one of the majors' most extreme pull hitters on grounders and line drives, and his infield hit rate actually decreased. He was one of the six most productive shortstops in Fantasy three seasons ago, but unless he makes more contact, Castro could have trouble cracking the top 12.
