Pirates | Castillo likely to report with lighter weight

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Dejan Kovacevic reports when Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Jose Castillo reports to spring training, he could check in 15-20 pounds lighter than he was last season, according to some in the organization. His official listing for 2006 was 219 pounds on a 6-foot-1 frame. "He's definitely in better shape now, which is a very positive thing," general manager Dave Littlefield said. "It's a sign that he committed himself to working hard and taking very seriously some of the advice we gave, like we give to every player at the end of a season."
