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.
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.
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.
