Mariners | Welington Castillo starting Tuesday

Tue, 26 May 2015 15:30:22 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Welington Castillo is starting behind the plate and batting seventh in the order Tuesday, May 26, against the Tampa Bay Rays. C Mike Zunino will be available off the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) had a hit and a run scored in each of his first two games as a member of the Mariners before going 0-for-4 Sunday, May 24. Castillo is hitting for an average of just .152 against righties, and he shouldn't be considered against Rays RHP Alex Colome.

Mariners | Welington Castillo in lineup

Sun, 24 May 2015 07:49:00 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Welington Castillo will make his third start for the Mariners Sunday, May 24, against the Toronto Blue Jays. It will be Castillo's third start in four games.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is quickly supplanting Mike Zunino as the Mariners' regular catcher. At the minimum cost, Castillo has been able to exceed his price in each of his first two games. Castillo is also worth a look in AL-only leagues or deeper, mixed leagues.

Mariners | Welington Castillo in lineup Friday

Fri, 22 May 2015 12:02:50 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Welington Castillo is in the lineup Friday, May 22, against the Toronto Blue Jays. Castillo is serving as designated hitter, and OF Dustin Ackley is out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has an .091 average but has scored two runs and driven in one. Despite the low average, he may be worth the risk if you're not looking to spend too much money on a catcher.

Mariners | Welington Castillo starting Thursday

Wed, 20 May 2015 13:24:06 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Welington Castillo will start Thursday, May 21, and he will catch SP J.A. Happ.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) may be tested as Happ's personal catcher during this game. Castillo may get more starts, especially if Mike Zunino falters, so keep an eye on how Castillo does.

Mariners | Welington Castillo to be activated

Wed, 20 May 2015 08:00:34 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Welington Castillo will be activated to the 40-man roster Wednesday, May 20. Mariners C Jesus Sucre was optioned to Class AAA Tacoma.

Fantasy Tip: It is unclear if Castillo ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will start Wednesday on the road against the Baltimore Orioles. Fantasy owners should let him settle into his new home before tossing him into lineups, yet there is mild appeal given his basement price point.

Mariners | Welington Castillo acquired by Seattle

Tue, 19 May 2015 08:18:26 -0700

The Seattle Mariners acquired Chicago Cubs C Welington Castillo in exchange for RP Yoervis Medina Tuesday, May 19.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has all-universe value as a No. 2 fantasy catcher and could earn extra playing time if C Mike Zunino doesn't get on track soon. Castillo is a cheap source of cap relief on FantasyScore. Medina has no fantasy value at this time.

Cubs | Miguel Montero out Thursday

Thu, 14 May 2015 07:46:06 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is out of the lineup Thursday, May 14, with C Welington Castillo in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($1,600, 3.2% of your cap) is hitting just .194 and isn't a good play on FantasyScore.

Cubs | Miguel Montero out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 12:55:33 -0700

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.

Cubs | Welington Castillo still may be moved

Sat, 21 Feb 2015 07:28:50 -0800

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.
