Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo takes a seat

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 14:05:48 -0700

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.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb, Michael Bourn out Sunday

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 09:30:27 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb and OF Michael Bourn are not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Brandon Finnegan Sunday, July 24. INF/OF Chris Owings will hit sixth and play center field, while INF/OF Brandon Drury will bat seventh and play third base. In addition, INF Phil Gosselin will bat second and play second base, OF Rickie Weeks will hit cleanup and start in left field and C Welington Castillo will bat fifth and start behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Arizona is using a lineup exclusively made up of right-handed and switch hitters against the lefty Finnegan this afternoon, which explains the absences of Bourn and Lamb. Although he has struggled recently, Weeks may be worthy of consideration as a value play in DFS because he is hitting fourth and has performed well on the road (.304) and against southpaws (.278) this season.

Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo gets a break

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 12:26:08 -0700

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.

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 18:48:00 -0700

Updating a previous report, Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo (hand) was out of the starting lineup against the Toronto Blue Jays Wednesday, July 20, because of a minor hand injury suffered after being hit by a pitch Monday, July 18. However, manager Chip Hale said he was fine and added that he was available off the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Through 69 games this season, Castillo is batting .261 with 10 home runs and 30 RBI. He should be viewed as a midrange catching option in all fantasy formats.

Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo not playing

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 10:14:51 -0700

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.

Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo takes a seat

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 12:22:36 -0700

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.

Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo receiving day off

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 10:38:40 -0700

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.

Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo takes a seat

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 15:12:14 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 6. C Chris Herrmann is doing the catching and is hitting fifth against San Diego Padres SP Colin Rea.

Fantasy Tip: Herrmann has been a pleasant surprise for the Snakes this year, slashing .289/.353/.504 with six home runs and 27 RBI in 135 at-bats. He's a perfect second catcher in two-catcher formats, and he profiles as a decent value selection in DFS tonight against Rea.

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 12:03:25 -0700

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.

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 05:36:23 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo went 2-for-4 with two runs, a home run and four RBI during the Diamondbacks' 6-5 win over the San Francisco Giants Saturday, July 2.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo is a low-end starter in all fantasy formats and sits with 24 runs, 10 home runs, 30 RBI and a .283/.325/.469 slash line for the season. He's been particularly strong of late with seven runs, three home runs, eight RBI and a .898 OPS through his past 15 games, too.
