After suffering a broken wrist in August 2020, Starlin Castro indicates that his wrist feels 100%. If the Nationals made the postseason, Castro supposedly would've been ready to play in the postseason.
Assuming health, Starlin Castro should be a nice late-round sleeper to target at second base. He should hit about 20 home runs with a decent amount of runs and RBI and a solid .270 to .280 batting average.
Starlin Castro, who fractured his wrist back in August, is a "full go" for spring training, according to Nats manager Davey Martinez.
Castro had surgery on his fractured wrist back in August and wanted to play winter ball but was advised to take some time off in order to get ready for spring training. Castro appeared in just 16 games in 2020 before getting injured. He registered a .267/.302/.450 batting line over 60 at-bats. He is a decent infield option in deeper mixed leagues.
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.
