Profiles:  2017  (Click Year to Expand / Close)
Profile: Castro is a tiny, slap-hitting, glove-first infielder who never really hit in the minors and didn’t hit at all in limited stints with the Braves. In 80 big league games between 2015 and 2016, he’s hit a pitcheresque .217/.250/.265, earning him a WAR in the negatives. Castro can’t hit, but his low strikeout rates suggest his bat isn’t quite as empty as it looked in Atlanta. Castro's a slick fielder, so simply making regular contact might be enough for him to carve out a career as a glove-first utility guy in Colorado. Unfortunately, glove-first utility guys who don't steal are the fantasy-equivalent of a screen door on a submarine. Although he's a 24-year-old who's big league ready, Castro's fantasy upside is negligible. (Chris Mitchell)

The Quick Opinion: Castro is a no-hit, utility infielder who lacks speed. Move along.
