Description: Cubs catcher Welington Castillo hit a single and drew a walk in his return to action on Saturday against the Pirates.
Insight: Castillo missed Friday's suspended game with lower back tightness. His back should not be an issue going forward. Castillo is hitting .235 with 11 home runs and 39 RBI.
 
5/30/2014 10:04:00 AM
Description: Cubs catcher Welington Castillo only has 19 homers over his four plus seasons, but four of the home runs were against Friday's starter Marco Estrada.
Insight: Castillo has hit five home runs and is batting .252 this season, but he could be a decent option with Estrada pitching today.
 
5/18/2014 10:06:00 AM
Description: Cubs catcher Welington Castillo has four hits in 14 at-bats (.286) against Brewers starter Marco Estrada, and three left the park.
Insight: Castillo has hit four home runs and batted .240 this season, but he could be a decent option with Estrada pitching Sunday.
 
4/12/2014 11:10:00 AM
Description: Cubs catcher Welington Castillo will get Saturday afternoon off.
Insight: Day game off after a extra-inning night game is the normal practice for catchers. Castillo is batting .212 this season with a couple of homers.
 
4/3/2014 11:16:00 AM
Description: Cubs catcher Welington Castillo will get the afternoon off on Thursday.
Insight: No surprise after the 16-inning game last night in which he went 1-for-8. John Baker will get the start, but has never shown to have much of a bat.
 
9/20/2013 6:50:00 PM
Description: Cubs catcher Welington Castillo has a partial tear of his right meniscus and is done for the season, according to ESPN Chicago. Castillo will have a 4-6 week recovery ahead of him.
Insight: GM Theo Epstein said that the 26-year-old Castillo is part of Chicago's core for the future. After not producing much at the plate for most of the season, Castillo hit .310 with four homers over his last eight games before the injury, but he's not likely to be on the fantasy radar next year.
 
9/20/2013 9:55:00 AM
Description: Cubs catcher Welington Castillo is doubtful for Friday's game against Atlanta with a sore right knee.
Insight: Castillo has but up solid numbers in limited action (.273, 8 HR, 32 RBI, .747 OPS in 377 at-bats), though he still swings and misses too often (96 Ks).
 
5/5/2013 12:37:00 PM
Description: Cubs catcher Welington Castillo (ankle) fouled a ball off his ankle Saturday and will miss Sunday's game.
Insight: He's just dealing with a little soreness, according to Carrie Muskat of MLB.com. He should return soon.
 
4/18/2013 9:05:00 PM
Description: Cubs catcher Welington Castillo is batting .425 this season after going 4-for-4 Thursday against the Rangers.
Insight: Castillo has struck out eight times without a walk this year, and he profiles as someone who will hit for power but not a high average.
 
4/12/2013 10:41:00 PM
Description: Cubs catcher Welington Castillo went 2-for-4 Friday afternoon against the Giants and is hitting .414 this season.
Insight: Castillo is 12-for-29 with two doubles, one homer and four RBIs, but he has struck out six times and hasn't walked. He profiles as more of a power-hitting catcher than someone who will hit for a high average.
 
5/22/2012 11:07:00 AM
Description: Cubs catcher Welington Castillo is expected to miss Tuesday's game against Houston with a sprained right MCL.
Insight: The Cubs had already dipped into their farm system for Castillo with injuries to both starter Geovany Soto and backup Steve Clevenger. Now they have purchased the contract of Blake Lalli who was batting .178 at Iowa. That doesn't bode well for Lalli's production at the major league level.
