Erik Castro: Tired of Strasburg, Needs more ABs

Surely the Astros' 10th Round pick out of San Diego State - Erik Castro - can get some ABs...somewhere?

That's what you would think, but it's not happening.

Castro only has nine ABs, "platooning" at third in Tri-City with Jhonny Medrano, and he knows that Jason Castro is C1 of the future.
"I’m OK with that. I have the ability to help a team with my versatility, my ability to play several positions. That’s my strength. However many (ABs) I get, I’ll try to make the most of it."

Tri-City manager Jim Pankovits:
“We’ll find a way to get him so more at-bats. He can help us.”

And on answering questions about former teammate Stephen Strasburg:
“It gets a little tiring after while. But he’s a great guy.”
