Castro spent 36 of his 49 games in the field at 3B, committing 13 errors in 106 chances for an iffy .877 Fld%. In 109 chances at 1B, he was perfect, and by "perfect" I mean "didn't commit any errors."

It was a tale of two halves for Castro. Or maybe, more accurately, it was a tale of one two-thirds and one one-third. Pre NYPL All-Star Break, Castro hit .218/.329/.379 with 29K:21BB (in 41 games), and .353/.397/.588 in 19 games after the All-Star Break. The walk rate is very encouraging, and he strikes out in only 17% of his plate appearances. Guy's huge, and with that kind of plate discipline, he should come along with the consistency.
