Starlin Castro collects two hits vs. the Cardinals

Starlin Castro went 2-for-3 against the Cardinals on Friday afternoon.

Fantasy Impact

Castro is now batting .359 this spring in 39 at-bats. The Marlins plan to bat him third in the lineup which will give his fantasy value a boost. Despite hamstring issues that sent him to the DL in 2017, Castro is usually durable and consistent. This makes him a safe low-ceiling, high-floor pick in deeper mixed leagues.

Starlin Castro to bat third for the Marlins this season

According to Joe Frisaro of, Starlin Castro will be batting third for the Marlins this season.

Fantasy Impact

A 2017 All-Star, Castro was hampered in the second half last year due to a hamstring injury. He still finished batting over .300 for the second time in his career. A career 80% contact rate makes Castro a good candidate to bat third for this young Marlins team. It may be worth a gamble to take a flyer on the second basemen late in deep mixed leagues.

Starlin Castro traded to Marlins

The Yankees have traded Starlin Castro and two minor leaguers to the Miami Marlins in exchange for Giancarlo Stanton. The deal is pending physicals.

Fantasy Impact

Castro had a resurgent year with the Yankees, but obviously now goes to a team with a worse lineup and ballpark. There's a strong chance that Castro will again be on the move, as there are already rumors of teams, such as the Mets, engaging in dialogue with the Marlins. It's likely Castro will be downgraded from last year wherever he lands, but wait to see where the dust settles before getting too worried.
