Cubs | Starlin Castro won't be traded

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 09:43:51 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Starlin Castro was assured by manager Joe Maddon that he won't be traded this summer.

Fantasy Tip: That's far from a guarantee that Castro ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) won't be traded away. However, with a .163 average (14-for-86) in July and a .237 average on the season, not many contending teams are likely looking to acquire the shortstop. With Castro's bat dormant right now, he's a weaker shortstop play on FantasyScore.

Cubs | Starlin Castro with day off

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 08:42:52 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Starlin Castro is out of the lineup Wednesday, July 29, with SS Addison Russell moving up to sixth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Russell ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is still trying to figure it out offensively and isn't a good start on FantasyScore.

Cubs | Starlin Castro tries to break slump

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 20:43:35 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Starlin Castro entered the game Monday, July 27, against the Colorado Rockies hitting just .139 in the month of July. Manager Joe Maddon watched video of Castro from last season, and the shortstop has been doing drills with hitting coach John Mallee trying to work on a more direct path to the ball.

Fantasy Tip: Castro ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) has been overpriced for FantasyScore players during most of July. Avoid him until his price tag falls dramatically or he starts to show more consistency at the dish.

Padres | Friars discussing Starlin Castro

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 15:31:50 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Starlin Castro has been discussed by the San Diego Padres, according to sources. The Cubs are inquiring about the Padres' starting pitchers.

Fantasy Tip: Castro ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has faded quickly and is hitting .139 (11-for-79) with no home runs and five RBI in July to drop his season average to .233. A move to pitching-friendly Petco Park would only further drop his fantasy value moving forward. If Castro were to be traded, it would allow the Cubbies to move Addison Russell to shortstop - his natural position - and create room for Javier Baez at second base.

Cubs | Starlin Castro hitting the the two-hole

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 13:34:24 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Starlin Castro is batting second in Game 2 of the doubleheader against Cincinnati Reds SP Tony Cingrani Wednesday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Castro ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is struggling through a difficult season offensively, but the lineup move could provide a spark. Still, he is a risky FantasyScore play and is currently riding a 6-for-55 run with just three runs, three RBI and a .265 OPS over his past 15 games.

Cubs | Starlin Castro sitting Game 1

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 07:05:28 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Starlin Castro is out of the lineup for the first half of a doubleheader Wednesday, July 22. 2B Jonathan Herrera is hitting seventh against Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake.

Fantasy Tip: Herrera ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is actually hitting .346 this month, but he's a bit of a dice roll on FantasyScore.

Cubs | Starlin Castro working on swing

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 15:06:22 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Starlin Castro said he has been working on fixing his swing because he has been opening up during his swings in games. "My front hip is open a little bit," Castro said. "That's what I'm working on. Watching the video from last year. Trying to stay closed and think middle all the way." Castro said he believes he can play better than what he has shown this season.

Fantasy Tip: Castro ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) started the season off strong but has hit .250 or worst in each of the last three months with a .153 batting average this month. Owners on FantasyScore may want to avoid Castro until he can become more consistent at the plate.

Cubs | Starlin Castro, Anthony Rizzo could shine

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 15:17:40 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Starlin Castro and 1B Anthony Rizzo are a combined 12-for-28 with four RBI in their career against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha, who they face Wednesday, July 8.

Fantasy Tip: Castro ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) and Rizzo ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) both become a little more attractive on FantasyScore because of their history against Wacha, but it's still a very tough matchup tonight. Rizzo has more risk because of the higher price.

Fantasy Tip: Castro ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) received a scheduled day off Friday. He is 6-for-21 over the past week and is hitting .273 against the Fish this year.

Cubs | Starlin Castro has day off

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 08:57:36 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Starlin Castro is out of the lineup Friday, July 3, in favor of SS Jonathan Herrera.

Fantasy Tip: Herrera ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) and his .229-1-10 line shouldn't be used on FantasyScore.
