Cubs | Starlin Castro rested

Chicago Cubs SS Starlin Castro is taking the day off Tuesday, June 25, his first day off after starting 269 straight games. He's hitting a career-low .228 on the season. Castro is hitting only .131 in June with no home runs and three RBIs. "Failure is innate in baseball; it's inevitable," president Theo Epstein said. "It's actually an important part in the development of the development process. Starlin is someone who went very quickly through the upper minor leagues. If you look at the number of at-bats he had at the Double-A and Triple-A level, there are not very many and he was in the big leagues instantly and had success."

Fantasy Tip: This might be the perfect time to buy low on Castro if his current owner has clearly given up on him. If you're planning to ride this out, you should probably keep him on your bench until he receives a spark. If you haven't already, build depth behind him.
