RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Bernie Castro.

2007

He didn't hit at all after being called up to the majors but Castro's base stealing ability, the source of any potential fantasy value he might have, remained intact. He could break camp with a bench spot, but more likely he'll return to Triple-A as insurance in case Cristian Guzman breaks down once again.

2004

Castro's terrific minor league season was cut short in August 2003, when he went down with a torn ACL. Up to that point the Triple-A Pacific Coast League All-Star had hit .309 with 49 stolen bases (102 the past two seasons). With Mark Loretta and Ramon Vazquez in front of him, and top prospect Josh Barfield closing from behind, his future is likely that of a utility-man who can offer blazing speed off the bench. The Padres have discussed working him out at the other infield positions to facilitate this, and we'll wager a guess that he'll begin this process with Triple-A Portland in 2004.

2003

Castro swiped 53 bags for AA Mobile in 2002 and recorded a solid 52/67 BB/K ratio. He only hit .260 last season, so there are some concerns about his ability to make contact. At 22, heís entering the prime of his prospect status. Itís not too late for Castro to carry early-season hitting magic into the summer and validate his prospect status, but the likelihood here is that Castro becomes a late-inning pinch runner/defensive replacement type. And even that wonít happen for a couple more seasons.
