Starlin Castro (wrist) told Nationals manager Dave Martinez that he hopes to be back in three weeks.
Castro underwent surgery on Friday to repair his broken wrist. We can't always take players at their word when discussing injury timelines, but it sounds as if Castro at least has a chance to return before the end of the regular season.
Starlin Castro will have wrist surgery on Friday to put a pin in his broken right wrist according to Nats manager Davey Martinez.
This undoubtedly rules Castro out for the remainder of the regular season but he's got a shot to return if the Nationals were to make the playoffs. "Just get to the playoffs, and I'll be back" the veteran second baseman said. Castro was off to a decent start before breaking his wrist, slashing .267/.302/.450 with two home runs and four RBI across 60 at-bats.
The Nationals placed Starlin Castro on the injured list with a broken right wrist.
The Nationals and Orioles were completing Sunday's game on Friday afternoon. Castro was removed after making a diving play at second base. Unfortunately, that's where he broke his wrist and he was placed on the IL ahead of Friday's regularly scheduled game.
Nationals infielder Starlin Castro went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the New York Mets. The homer was his second of the season.
Castro had gone 0-for-10 over his previous two games coming into Wednesday, watching his batting average drop from .357 to .288 in the process. It's back above .300 after Wednesday, and Castro remains a valuable corner and middle infield depth player in all fantasy formats.
Nationals second baseman Starlin Castro went 1-for-3 in the team's loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night.
After batting third in each of his first four games, Castro was dropped to sixth in the order on Tuesday with the team struggling. With Juan Soto potentially returning soon, Castro is unlikely to return to the third spot in the lineup.
