RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Castillo took over as the team's starting catcher after the Geovany Soto trade and did not disappoint, posting a .265/.337/.418 line in 170 at-bats as a 25-year-old. That followed up three straight .800-plus-OPS campaigns at Triple-A from 2010-2012. Castillo is also a solid defensive catcher, so he should get a shot to establish himself in 2013. Once the proven major league producers are off the board, Castillo is worth a look.

2012

Known for his defense, Castillo put together a strong season at Triple-A, slashing .286/.351/.524 in 227 Triple-A at-bats. Keep in mind he did that as a 24-year-old, so he's not considered an upper-echelon prospect. Unless the team elects to move Geovany Soto - due a decent raise in arbitration - Castillo likely to fill a backup role at best. He's worth a look in two-catcher NL-only leagues, as he did show some signs of offensive life, unlike most backstops.

2011

Castillo is a good defensive catcher with some pop in his bat, but lacks plate discipline and on-base skills. He played well in a brief September callup last year, and should compete for a job backing up Geovany Soto. That said, the team tendered Koyie Hill a contract in December, so Castillo could begin the year at Triple-A.

2010

Castillo is a whiz with the glove and does have a little pop, but his plate discipline and on-base skills are lacking. He'll start the season at Triple-A and could eventually push Koyie Hill for the backup catcher job.
