Starlin Castro
News 
 Cleveland Indians second baseman Cesar Hernandez went 2-for-3 with a home run in an 11-7 loss to the Angels on Tuesday.
Matthew Terelle
Tue, Mar 3rd
Nats manager Dave Martinez says Starlin Castro will mostly play second base this spring.
Brendan Tuma - Too Much Tuma
Mon, Feb 17th
  Free-agent infielder has agreed to a two-year, $12 million deal with the Washington Nationals, according to a report from MLB insider Ken Rosenthal.
Mike Maher - The Birds Blitz

Notes 
 There is nothing sexy about grabbing Hernandez in the 22nd round as your #3 middle infielder but he has been as consistent as you'll find over the last few years. He is a safe bet for 15 homers, 10 steals and useful batting average while playing just about every game.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Castro never developed into the fantasy stud he looked like he might become earlier in his career, but he quietly set a career high in home runs and RBI last year with the Marlins. Now with the Nationals, where he'll bat anywhere from third to fifth, there are going to be RBI opportunities aplenty for the veteran. A career .336/.358/.513 hitter in Nationals Park, Castro makes a fine middle infield option in mixed leagues.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  Castro was a total afterthought for most of the season but he finished on such a strong note that he ended up with 22 homers, a .270 batting average and 86 RBIs in Miami's crummy lineup. Now that he is in Washington, 100 RBIs is a realistic goal.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
  One of my favorite value MI options this season. Hit 16 second half HRs while batting 302. He now heads to an everyday role in an improved Washington lineup and should be a solid option all year long.
