Chicago Cubs SS Starlin Castro is fully healthy heading into the season, and his swing is well ahead of where it was last season already, as he was popping balls out of the park during batting practice Tuesday, Feb. 3. Castro recently moved his family from the Dominican Republic to Arizona, which allowed him to get an early start on spring training, and he feels much safer and more comfortable.
