Cubs | Starlin Castro to miss time

Thu, 21 Aug 2014 11:07:31 -0700

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.

Cubs | Starlin Castro has minor knee issue

Tue, 12 Aug 2014 20:47:58 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Starlin Castro (knee) said Tuesday, Aug. 12, that he twisted his left knee Monday, Aug. 11, running to first base. He said he felt some discomfort in his knee again legging out a double Tuesday. However, he said he is OK.

Fantasy Tip: Castro extended his hitting streak to 11 games. He is hitting .400 (18-for-45) with a homer, five RBI and seven runs scored during the impressive stretch. It appears his injury is minor, as he is playing through it and not being rested or coming out of games. For now, keep him active in all fantasy leagues unless he has some sort of setback.
