The Chicago Cubs have placed SS Starlin Castro on the bereavement list. The team also recalled 2B Logan Watkins from Triple-A Iowa.
Fantasy Tip: Castro could miss up to a week while on the bereavement list. The team could consider moving Javier Baez to shortstop and Arismendy Alcantara to second base with Justin Ruggiano and Matt Szczur seeing time in the outfield. Ruggiano and Szczur probably should only be options in NL-only leagues.
