Astros' Jason Castro: Has four-RBI day in rout
Jason Castro, C, HOU
12:13 AM
News: Castro hit a two-run homer and a two-run double, drew two walks and scored three runs in five trips to the plate Wednesday against the Twins.

After a terrible 2015, an awful start to 2016 had Castro well off most fantasy radars, but he's been showing signs of life recently. The 28-year-old backstop has homered in consecutive games and hit safely in five straight, going 7-for-15 with a 4:3 BB:K in that span. If you're needy at catcher -- and with the early injuries this season, many are -- he's worth a look.

Angels' Geovany Soto: Gets fourth start in six games Wednesday
Geovany Soto, C, LAA
5/4/2016
News: Soto went 0-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in the Angels' win over Milwaukee on Wednesday.

Wednesday's start marked the fourth time in the last six games that Soto has been given the nod behind the plate over Carlos Perez. If that distribution of playing time holds up, Soto may emerge as an option in deeper two-catcher formats thanks to his ability to provide cheap pop from behind the dish.

Twins' Kurt Suzuki: Out of Wednesday's lineup
Kurt Suzuki, C, MIN

News: Suzuki is out of the lineup Wednesday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

The 32-year-old catcher will sit in place of John Ryan Murphy, who will bat eighth in the Twins lineup against the Astros. Suzuki has started the brunt of the games this season, but will be sitting for the third time in the past five days after Wednesday's game. He has struggled from the plate thus far, hitting .196 with a .528 OPS, but shouldn't be too worried since Murphy is only 3-for-36 on the year.

Red Sox's Ryan Hanigan: Out of the lineup Wednesday

News: Hanigan is out of the lineup Wednesday against the White Sox, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

Hanigan is getting regular reps as the backup catcher with the Red Sox taking a cautious approach with Christian Vazquez. Hanigan is hitting just .167 on the season with one extra-base hit in 30 at-bats this season. However, he will cede the starting job to Vazquez on Wednesday.

News: Vazquez is back in the lineup, batting eighth and starting behind the plate, Wednesday against the White Sox, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

While Vazquez's average isn't great-hitting just .225 on the season-he's currently on a six-game hitting streak and picked up his first home run of the season in his last start on Sunday. He replaces Ryan Hanigan in the starting lineup on Wednesday.

Tom Murphy
Rockies' Tom Murphy: Could rejoin Triple-A squad soon
Tom Murphy, C, COL
5/4/2016
News: Murphy (oblique) is playing games at extended spring training and could rejoin the Triple-A squad soon, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Murphy hasn't been able to appear in a game yet with Triple-A Albuquerque due to the oblique strain, but it appears that he's progressed very well through the rehab process. Unfortunately, he may be locked in the minors for the time being despite his upper-prospect status due to the success of major league backup catcher Tony Wolters.

Curt Casali
Rays' Curt Casali: Blasts second homer of season in Tuesday loss
Curt Casali, C, TB
5/4/2016
News: Casali went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer and two runs scored in Tuesday's 10-5 loss to the Dodgers.

The third-year catcher continues to alternate starts with offseason acquisition Hank Conger, although both backstops are currently hitting below the Mendoza line. The gopher ball Tuesday was Casali's second of the season, and only his fourth extra-base hit overall in 51 at-bats.

Orioles' Matt Wieters: Out of the lineup Wednesday
Matt Wieters, C, BAL
5/4/2016
News: Wieters is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Yankees, Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Wieters finally played back-to-back games at the end of April, but he's still stuck splitting time down the middle with Caleb Joseph. Wieters' power hasn't really come through this season, hitting just one home run and two doubles as he's only mustered a .217/.288/.300 slash line.

News: Joseph is batting eighth and starting behind the plate Wednesday against the Yankees, Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Continuing to alternate games with Matt Wieters, Joseph doesn't provide quite the same pop that Wieters does. He's hitting .212 with one extra-base hit. He has drawn three walks in his past two games after drawing just one in his first nine games.

News: Castillo is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Marlins.

Despite hitting his seventh home run of the season in Tuesday's contest, Castillo will take the day off to rest. Chris Herrmann will fill in for him behind the plate Wednesday.
