Cubs | Tweaks to Starlin Castro's swing pays dividends

Chicago Cubs manager Dale Sveum and the hitting coaches have gotten SS Starlin Castro to get his weight shift back on his back leg again, and the tweak in his form at the plate is starting to pay off. He went 6-for-13 with a pair of home runs before the All-Star break. "I am looking for the fastball every time now," Castro said. "I was late to the fastball and now I am adjusting to looking for fastballs. You can't hit a good slider (anyway), you can only hit a hanging slider. If you are looking for a fastball you can hit it."
