Fear has always been the best motivator. The Cubs have Javier Baez and now Addison Russell waiting in the wings. Suddenly, Castro went from just another guy to a top ten shortstop again. I wonder if the possibility of losing his job had something to do with that. He has displayed more power this year and now Baez is trying his hand at second base. People do what they need to do out of self-preservation.
