Welington Castillo Throws To Bases

Washington Nationals catcher Welington Castillo (shoulder) threw to the bases on Sunday and should return to Grapefruit League action on Tuesday. Castillo should be just fine for Opening Day as long as he doesn't have any setbacks. The 32-year-old (33 in April) Dominican slumped to a .209/.267/.417 slash line with 12 home runs and 41 RBI in 230 at-bats for the White Sox last year. He's also third on the catching depth chart in D.C. behind Yan Gomes and Kurt Suzuki, so Castillo won't even have much fantasy appeal in two-catcher leagues to begin the season.

Nationals Agree With Welington Castillo

The Washington Nationals agreed to a minor league deal with catcher Welington Castillo on Friday. Castillo will receive a non-roster invite to spring training. The 32-year-old (33 in April) hit a disappointing .209/.267/.417 with 12 home runs and 41 RBI in just 72 games for the White Sox in 2019. There won't be much fantasy value to be had here in D.C., however, as he's third on the catching depth chart behind Kurt Suzuki and Yan Gomes. Castillo can be avoided unless you're in a deep NL-only league in which you start two backstops.

Rangers Acquire Welington Castillo

The Texas Rangers acquired catcher Welington Castillo and international slot compensation from the White Sox on Thursday in exchange for minor league infielder/outfielder Jonah McReynolds. Castillo had a tough year with the Pale Hose, hitting .209/.267/.417 with 12 home runs and 41 RBI in 230 at-bats as the backup in Chicago. His best year came in 2017 with the Orioles when he hit .282 and slugged a career-high 20 home runs, but that's likely his high-water mark in the big leagues. Texas isn't guaranteed to keep Castillo around in 2020.
