Cubs | Welington Castillo has improved

Chicago Cubs manager Dale Sveum and pitching coach Chris Bosio, as well as general manager Jed Hoyer and team president Theo Epstein all feel C Welington Castillo is a building-block type of player. Bosio is particularly impressed with his improvement. "He's come a long way in a short period of time," Bosio said. "He's a very talented guy with the arm, block-ability and throw-ability. His knowledge and aptitude have become a lot better."

Fantasy Tip: Castillo is the team's full-time catcher, and therefore is a decent low-end No. 2 receiver in mixed fantasy leagues, and a Top 10 option at the position in NL-only formats.
