Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 25. C Tuffy Gosewisch is doing the catching and is hitting seventh against Milwaukee Brewers SP Chase Anderson.
Fantasy Tip: It looks to be a normal day off for Castillo. Replace him everywhere. Gosewisch has a limited offensive ceiling and is batting .263 with a homer and three RBI in 19 at-bats this year. Consider him a desperation pick in daily formats.

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo and SS Nick Ahmed are not in the lineup against the Cincinnati Reds SP Keyvius Sampson on Saturday, July 23. INF/OF Chris Owings will fill in for Ahmed and hit fifth, while C Tuffy Gosewisch will replace Castillo behind the plate and bat eighth.
Fantasy Tip: Castillo is batting a miserable .158 in July, but this appears to be nothing more than a day off as he is in no danger of losing his job to Gosewisch. Owings will be making his first big-league appearance since June 5 after recovering from a foot injury, but neither Gosewisch nor Owings is worth using outside of NL-only leagues today.

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20. C Tuffy Gosewisch is doing the catching and batting seventh against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman.
Fantasy Tip: Ignore Gosewisch in all fantasy formats Wednesday. The backstop has a .213 career average and only two home runs in four major league seasons. Castillo figures to be taking a normal day of rest.

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo and OF Yasmany Tomas are both absent from the lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Kenta Maeda on Sunday, July 17. 2B/OF Mike Freeman will get the nod in right field and bat sixth, while C Tuffy Gosewisch will draw a start behind the plate and hit seventh.
Fantasy Tip: Castillo is mired in a 2-for-24 slump with no extra-base hits over his last nine games, although today's non-start appears to a regularly scheduled maintenance day. Tomas has received only one game off since June 20 - not including the All-Star break and is scuffling as well, batting .150 with no extra-base hits in July. Freeman and Gosewisch should only be considered as last-minute options in NL-only leagues today.

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo is receiving the day off against San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy Saturday, July 9. C Tuffy Gosewisch will start behind the plate and bat seventh.
Fantasy Tip: Gosewisch is 3-for-5 since returning earlier this month from surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. The career .218 hitter should be viewed as a desperation source of cap relief in DFS.

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo is not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Albert Suarez Sunday, July 3. C Tuffy Gosewisch will start at catcher and is batting eighth.
Fantasy Tip: Gosewisch was recalled earlier this week and has not received an at-bat this season. Owners should avoid him in all fantasy leagues.
