Description: Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro's MRI showed a high-ankle sprain and he'll likely miss about four weeks ... a.k.a the remainder of the season.
Insight: Castro rebounded from 2013 to post solid numbers in 2014 - .292, 14 HR, 65 RBI and a .777 OPS, but it will be interesting to see if he's still with the team in 2015 because of all the shortstop talent the Cubs have in their minor league system.
 
9/2/2014 9:02:00 PM
Description: Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro left Tuesday's game against the Brewers in the first inning with a leg injury.
Insight: Castro's leg looked like it was caught in the dirt when the shortstop slid awkwardly as he scored on a single. He walked off on his own power but with an obvious limp.
 
8/25/2014 11:40:00 AM
Description: Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro has been activated from the bereavement list and will be available for Tuesday's game against Cincinnati.
Insight: Castro has rebounded with a solid season, batting .284 with 13 HR, 64 RBI and 53 runs. Javier Baez started at shortstop while Castro was out but will now go back to second.

Insight: Castro is 7-for-36 (.194) with no extra-base hits, one RBI and three Ks against Lohse. He's not a good fantasy option Wednesday.
 
Hot8/12/2014 10:02:00 AM
Description: Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro is a lifetime .476 hitter (10-for-21) versus Milwaukee starter Wily Peralta.
Insight: Castro (.281, 12 HR, 61 RBI) has been hot since the break batting over .300 in the past 23 games. Hot hitter plus favorable matchup equals must start.
 
8/3/2014 1:25:00 PM
Description: Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro is getting the day off Sunday.
Insight: It's a little surprising considering castro has six hits over the past two games, but it will be his first missed game of the season. Castro (.275, 11 HR, 57 RBI) has bounced back from a mediocre last season and is putting together a solid year.
 
7/18/2014 12:18:00 PM
Description: Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro is just 1-for-11 (.091) against Arizona right-hander Trevor Cahill.
Insight: Castro (.276, 11 HR, 52 RBI) has bounced back from last season and is putting together another solid season. Just don't use him Friday in an unfavorable matchup.

Description: Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro has gone 21-for-49 (.429) with eight doubles, four home runs and 14 RBI in his last 13 games.
Insight: Castro (.290, 11 HR, 43 RBI) didn't have more than three homers or 12 RBI in any month last season, but he already has two months with at least four homers and has produced at least 12 RBI in all three months this season. He's on pace to shatter his career highs of 14 home runs and 78 RBI.
 
Hot6/20/2014 9:35:00 AM
Description: Shortstop Starlin Castro is a career .458 hitter (11-for-24) with a pair of home runs versus Pittsburgh starter Charlie Morton.
Insight: He has 40 RBI in 70 games, putting him on pace for 93 RBI, which would shatter his career high of 78. With 10 home runs, he's also on pace to exceed his career high in homers by nine. And in his fifth season, he's still just 24-years-old.
 
6/18/2014 6:02:00 PM
Description: Shortstop Starlin Castro has become a strong run producer for the Cubs this season.
Insight: He has 40 RBI in 70 games, putting him on pace for 93 RBI, which would shatter his career high of 78. With 10 home runs, he's also on pace to exceed his career high in homers by nine.
 
6/15/2014 4:30:00 PM
Description: Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro contributed three hits Sunday against the Phillies.

Description: Chicago shortstop Starlin Castro has gone 10-for-25 (.400) with two doubles against Phillies starter A.J. Burnett.
Insight: Castro has picked up five doubles and two homers while hitting .260 in June. He'll face Burnett Sunday, so he should be one of your shortstop options.
 
Hot6/9/2014 10:03:00 PM
Description: Chicago shortstop Starlin Castro has gone 6-for-13 with four doubles and a homer in his last three games.
Insight: Castro's career high in home runs in 14; he already has eight this season after going 3-for-4 with a double and a homer Monday against the Pirates. Unfortunately, he's stopped stealing bases altogether.

Insight: The shortstop has bounced back from a weak 2013 campaign, batting .266 with seven homers, 29 RBI, 24 runs and a .735 OPS, but has struggled this week (3-for-20) so could use a favorable matchup.
 
Hot5/31/2014 10:48:00 AM
Description: Chicago shortstop Starlin Castro is a career .474 hitter (9-for-19) with two homers against Milwaukee right-hander Wily Peralta.
Insight: The shortstop has bounced back from a weak 2013 campaign, batting .276 with seven homers, 26 RBI, 23 runs and a .761 OPS. We would like to see him return all the way to his .300 hitting ways.
 
5/28/2014 10:22:00 AM
