Cubs | Starlin Castro to miss time

Chicago Cubs SS Starlin Castro (hamstring) is expected to miss some time this spring after straining his left hamstring Wednesday, Feb. 27. INFs Javier Baez, Edwin Maysonet, Brent Lillibridge and Alberto Gonzalez figure to see time at shortstop in Castro's absence.

Fantasy Tip: There is still plenty of time left in spring training, so Chicago has no reason to rush Castro back. If for some reason this injury becomes a lingering issue, Lillibridge is the likeliest candidate to start the year as the starting shortstop.
