Yankees placed 2B Starlin Castro on the 10-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain.
Castro suffered the injury on Monday while running out a groundball. The good news is it's only a Grade 1 strain and he thinks he has a chance to be back when his 10 days are up. Tyler Wade is replacing Castro on the roster and figures to play a lot at second base. Ronald Torreyes is starting there Tuesday, and Rob Refsnyder is also an option. Jun 27 - 4:44 PM

Starlin Castro left Monday's game versus the White Sox with a strained right hamstring.

Castro tweaked the hammy while trying to beat out a grounder in the third inning. Tyler Wade is headed to the majors, and it's likely to take Castro's spot on the roster. Castro will undergo an MRI on Tuesday before the team officially makes a decision on a DL move, but it certainly appears the second baseman will miss some time.

Starlin Castro departed Monday's game against the White Sox in the third inning with an apparent leg injury.

Castro pulled up lame while trying to beat out a grounder and was lifted after walking off gingerly. It looked like something that could require a disabled list stint, but the Yankees should have an update later Monday. Castro has also been battling a wrist issue of late.

Starlin Castro (wrist) is back in the Yankees' lineup Monday.

Castro unavailable on Sunday after receiving a cortisone shot in his ailing right wrist, an injury that's bothered him for six weeks. He'll tape the wrist up and attempt to gut it out.
Jun 26 - 5:15 PM

Yankees' manager Joe Girardi said that Starlin Castro was unavailable on Sunday after receiving a cortisone shot in his ailing wrist.

Girardi indicated that Castro's wrist has been bothering him for the last six weeks. It's something that he'll continue to play through, but could lead to the occasional day of rest.

Starlin Castro went 3-for-5 with a double and three runs scored Thursday's 10-inning loss to the A's.

Castro was instrumental in helping the dogged Yankees offense overcome multiple deficits in the late innings. His one-out double off Santiago Casilla in the ninth inning set the stage for Gary Sanchez's game-tying RBI single to knot the score at 6-6 and his sacrifice fly with the bases loaded in the 10th gave the Yankees a 7-6 lead. Alas, he came up just short on a diving attempt at Khris Davis' dying quail of a pop-up in the bottom of the frame, a hit which scored two runs to deliver the A's a hard-fought victory. This three-hit night marked Castro's 28th multi-hit game of the season.
Jun 16 - 2:56 AM

Starlin Castro went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and four total RBI in Sunday's 14-3 drubbing of the Orioles.

Castro picked up a two-run single as part of a five-run first inning for the Yankees, then later socked a two-run homer in the sixth. That homer barely even registered in the Stadium, as the crowd was still buzzing from a 495-foot bomb by Aaron Judge from earlier in the frame. Castro has now homered in three consecutive games and has driven in 10 runs in his last four contests.
Jun 11 - 5:49 PM

Starlin Castro went 2-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in a win over the Red Sox on Thursday.

Castro had an RBI single in the sixth inning before plating a run with a groundout in the eighth. The runs batted in gives him 33 RBI on the year, and his 41 runs scored are fourth-best in the American League (behind teammate Aaron Judge and tied with teammate Brett Gardner). Perhaps somewhat quietly given what his teammates are doing, Castro is having himself a great year in his own right, batting a robust .319/.354/.491 in 57 games.
Jun 9 - 12:07 AM

Starlin Castro clubbed his ninth home run as the Yankees dispatched of the Blue Jays on Saturday in Toronto.

Castro also doubled in the ballgame, finishing the afternoon 2-for-4. He has been a steady force in the middle of the Yankees' lineup this season, slashing .321/.358/.498 with nine long balls and 31 RBI.
Jun 3 - 4:15 PM

Starlin Castro went 3-for-4 with two doubles and a walk against the Royals on Wednesday.

The 27-year-old Castro passed the 1,200-hit mark for his career tonight. He actually has more hits now than Derek Jeter did through age 27 (1,201 to 1,199), and he still has 125 games to add to that total. It doesn't mean that Castro is necessarily on the path to 3,000 hits -- he'll have to age particularly well -- but he got a big head start by picking up so many at-bats at a young age.
May 18 - 12:08 AM

Starlin Castro went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and three total RBI in Sunday's win over the Astros.

Following a leadoff walk to Matt Holliday in the fourth inning, Castro took the ball the opposite way against Mike Fiers, depositing it into the short porch in right field. He also hit a key RBI double in a six-run seventh inning as the Yankees pulled off yet another comeback on the young season. After clubbing a career-high 21 homers last season, Castro is already up to seven on the year and could well set a new personal best by the time the 2017 campaign has reached its close.
May 14 - 5:43 PM

Starlin Castro drove in the go-ahead run with a ground ball in the 18th inning, propelling the Yankees to a 5-4 victory on Sunday and a sweep of the Cubs.

Castro actually went hitless in eight at-bats on the night, but was still a major contributor. He plated the game's first run with a fielder's choice in the first inning. He reached on an error and scored on Aaron Judge's triple in the seventh and then ended the madness with his RBI in the 18th. Castro is off to a terrific start in 2017, slashing .355/.395/.545 with six long balls and 21 RBI.
May 8 - 2:18 AM

Starlin Castro had a big night against his former club, finishing 3-for-4 with a double, a home run, three RBI and two runs scored in an 11-6 win over the Cubs.

Castro had an RBI double in the Yankees' five-run first inning before smacking a two-run homer in the fourth. The homer was his sixth of the year. Castro has a ridiculous nine-game hitting streak during which he's 18-for-39 (.462), with seven of those nine games featuring multiple hits. The 27-year-old leads the American League with his .381 batting average, and he also ranks among the league leaders in runs (20), slugging percentage (.584) and OPS (1.006).
May 6 - 11:25 PM

Starlin Castro slugged a game-tying two-run homer off Brad Brach in the bottom of the ninth inning Friday against the Orioles.

Castro used an Adrian Beltre-like swing on the homer, dropping to one knee as he watched the ball carry into the left field bleachers. The Yankees went on to win the game in the 10th. The 27-year-old went 3-for-5 with two runs scored on the night and ranks second in the AL with a .361 batting average.
Apr 28 - 11:35 PM

Starlin Castro went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in a win over the Red Sox on Thursday.

Castro has hits in eight of his last nine games and has multiple hits in four of those games. His .346 batting average is second-best among qualified American League hitters. He's also got four homers, 14 RBI and 10 runs scored on the year.
