Starlin Castro to resume rehab in Arizona during the offseason


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/27/2014) Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro will spend some time in the Dominican Republic, but plans to resume his rehab at the team's spring facility in Arizona during the offseason, MLB.com reports Saturday.

Castro suffered a high left ankle sprain while sliding into home plate on Sept. 2, and injured that ended his season prematurely. He finished 2014 with a .292/.339/.438 slash line with 14 home runs and 65 RBI in 528 at-bats.

"It's big time frustrating," Castro said. "It's tough for me because I worked really hard to come back for one game or two. It's not going to happen but I'm not going to get frustrated. It's a really important season next year and I'm going to be healthy."

Starlin Castro still holding out hope for this season


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/9/2014) Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro told reporters Monday he still hopes to return to action this season, despite suffering what was believed to be a season-ending ankle injury.

"I want to come back this year," Castro told the Chicago Sun-Times. "I don't care if it's one game, I don't care if it's two games. Hopefully It's more than that."

Castro suffered the injury last Tuesday and was given a four-week prognosis to return to action. He hopes he can beat that projection and take the field again, in part because of trade rumors that are sure to swirl around him this offseason. The Cubs have a glut at the shortstop position, among a number of other top young prospects.

"I want to stay here," he said. "Especially [since] we're really close, with a lot of young guys and we're playing better. As soon as [Anthony Rizzo] and me are [back], it's going to be good."

Castro has put together a fine bouneback season, hitting .292/.339/.438 in 528 at-bats.
