Chicago Cubs C Welington Castillo was back in the lineup Thursday, June 26, after being given the day off Wednesday, June 25. Manager Rick Renteria said that team doesn't want Castillo to overdo it as he works his way back from a left rib cage strain.
Fantasy Tip: Castillo is enjoying his best offensive season, but his production remains modest. Castillo is hitting .243 with five home runs and 23 RBIs in 46 games, and he isn't really relevant outside of two-catcher leagues.
