Welington Castillo Has Big Day at the Plate Thursday

Chicago White Sox catcher Welington Castillo led the way in Thursday's 7-1 win over the Cleveland Indians, as he finished 3-for-5 with two doubles, a home run, three RBI and two runs scored. This was a breakout game for Castillo, who had struggled over his last 10 games with a .176 average that dropped his season average to .199. Owners should monitor his next few starts closely, but this could be a sign of good things to come and he could end up being a decent value in daily leagues going forward.

Welington Castillo Activated Tuesday

The Chicago White Sox activated catcher Welington Castillo (oblique) from the 10-day injured list on Tuesday and optioned catcher Zack Collins to Triple-A Charlotte in a corresponding move. The 32-year-old Castillo has been out since June 18 and was hitting just .196 (21-for-107) with five home runs and 15 RBI in 34 games before his injury. With All-Star James McCann the primary backstop for the Pale Hose, Castillo can pretty much be ignored in all fantasy leagues.

Welington Castillo Moves to Triple-A

Chicago White Sox catcher Welington Castillo (oblique) has moved his minor league rehab assignment to Triple-A. Castillo had just one hit during his seven at-bats in Double-A. He's been out since June 17 due to a strained oblique. James McCann has been outstanding at the plate this season, so Castillo will serve as the backup once he's healthy enough to return.
