Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is not in the batting order Tuesday, April 21, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. C Welington Castillo is hitting instead.
Fantasy Tip: Montero ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) looks like he is getting a standard night off. Castillo ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) may not be a bad option for starters looking to go cheap on the catcher spot, but catchers like Texas Rangers starter Carlos Corporan ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) may be a better bet.

Chicago Cubs C Welington Castillo is still being shopped by the team since they have Cs Miguel Montero and David Ross on the roster. The Philadelphia Phillies have shown interest in Castillo.
Fantasy Tip: It looks like Castillo is the third catcher on the depth chart at this point, so it would help his value if he is traded. At this point, Castillo should not be an option in drafts but would have value if he becomes a starting catcher elsewhere.

Chicago Cubs president Theo Epstein said the organization will look to strengthen their catching situation during the winter meetings next week, even though he expressed confidence in C Welington Castillo. "Catching is one of the few areas on the field where we can add some veteran leadership - in the near term, anyway - and not block a potential impact player," Epstein said. "That's a scenario we'll continue to look at. If you can have two good catchers, that's certainly better than one."
