Castro is one of the Indians Top 30 prospects coming into the season. The Indians are being aggressive, and assigned Castro (who is only 19), to the Low-A Lake Country Captains. He is holding his own with the bat, carrying a .298 AVG, but his strikeout total is a little worrying: in 84 at bats he has 16 K’s and only 1 walk. And that lack of walks is killing his OBP, which is at .302.
Still, most of his competition in almost 3 years older than he is, so he has plenty of time to figure things out. I am excited about his future with the Tribe.
