Cubs | Starlin Castro out a week

Mon, 03 Mar 2014 09:02:04 -0800

Chicago Cubs SS Starlin Castro (hamstring) will sit out seven to 10 days after injuring his hamstring Sunday, March 2, according to manager Rick Renteria. Renteria said the team is choosing to be cautious with Castro at this time. "It's not too bad like last year," Castro said. "It (hurts) just a little bit. It's early right now. I'll take a couple days and be back again." 2Bs Darwin Barney and Emilio Bonifacio will see some time at shortstop in Castro's absence, and SS Javier Baez is slated to start Monday, March 3.

Fantasy Tip: Castro's price is already down because of his disappointing 2013 campaign. This news won't endear him to any more folks, even if it won't affect his availability for opening day. Take advantage of the value if you have faith in a rebound year for Castro.
