Notes 
 Wong has had an up-and-down career so far, which has seemingly come year-to-year. He's guaranteed playing time thanks to his defense, at the very least.
Michael Waterloo - 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
 Don't look now, but Wong was actually great last year, hitting .285 with 24 steals and a dozen homers. While he hasn't exactly been consistent in his career, repeating those type of numbers would make him a downright steal late in drafts.
Bobby Sylvester - 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.
