Starlin Castro reached base four times and drove in a run Tuesday against the Twins.

All three base knocks were singles, with one of them plating a run in the sixth. Castro entered the game in a 6-for-41 funk at the plate, so hopefully this will get him going. He's got his average back up over .300 after it had dropped below for the first time since the third game of the season.
Sep 20 - 12:00 AM

Starlin Castro went 0-for-4 on Tuesday and is 1-for-22 in his last five games.

Castro did fine initially after coming off the disabled list, but nothing is falling for him right now. Tonight's 0-for leaves him with a sub-.300 average for just the second night this season; he was at .250 after going 0-for-4 in the Yankees' third game of the year on April 5. He's at .298 currently.
Sep 12 - 11:09 PM

Starlin Castro went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in Monday's win over the Orioles.

Castro's bomb in the fifth inning KO'd Dylan Bundy and gave the Yankees the lead what turned out to be for good. He also added a pair of singles, one of which plated a run. It's Castro's first home run since returning from the disabled list, but he's now batting .359 over 10 games.
Sep 4 - 7:14 PM

Starlin Castro went 3-for-5 with a double and drove in three runs on Sunday as the Yankees routed the Red Sox.

Castro delivered a bases-clearing double during a six-run uprising in the sixth inning that put the game away for the Bombers. He has been mighty impressive when healthy this season, slashing .309/.346/.469 with 12 homers and 51 RBI.
Sep 3 - 11:30 PM

Starlin Castro is not in the Yankees' starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Red Sox.

The Yankees have been giving him plenty of rest since returning from his hamstring injury to ensure he remains healthy. The 27-year-old is hitting .304/.342/.464 with 12 homers and 48 RBI on the season. Ronald Torreyes is starting in his place at second base and batting ninth on Saturday.
Sep 2 - 10:05 AM

Starlin Castro is not in the Yankees' lineup Tuesday against the Indians.

It's Castro's first night off since returning from a hamstring injury on Friday. Ronald Torreyes will hold down the fort at second base and bat ninth against Tribe right-hander Trevor Bauer.
Aug 29 - 3:32 PM

Starlin Castro went 4-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored in the Yankees' win over the Mariners on Sunday.

Castro doubled and scored in the Yankees' six-run first inning before tacking on an RBI single in the bottom of the third. The second baseman has done damage in each of his three games since coming off the disabled list Friday. He's slashing .314/.351/.479 this season.
Aug 27 - 4:27 PM

Yankees activated 2B Starlin Castro from the 10-day disabled list.

Castro has been out for over a month with an aggravation of his right hamstring injury, but he hit .333 with a homer over six rehab games and is ready to go. The second baseman is sporting a nifty .307/.344/.472 batting line with 12 homers this season.
Aug 25 - 2:27 PM

Starlin Castro (hamstring) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Friday.

The Yankees might get both Castro and Greg Bird (ankle) back Friday, with Bird seen as the more likely of the two to be activated if it's just one of them. Castro is hitting .333 with one homer in six rehab games, while Bird has batted .409 with three dingers over eight rehab contests. The two players cranked back-to-back homers for Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre on Thursday. Castro will obviously regain his starting job at second base once he's back, and Bird could play regularly for the Yanks, as well.
Aug 25 - 12:37 PM

Starlin Castro (hamstring) is set to begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Castro got the green light after making it through batting practice earlier in the week. He landed on the DL last month after aggravating a pre-existing hamstring injury. Ronald Torreyes has been covering for him at second base.
Aug 17 - 5:13 PM

Starlin Castro (hamstring) took batting practice Tuesday.

He's also done some light running recently. Castro is obviously progressing, but he'll need to run the bases without any issues before being cleared for game action. A return is not imminent.
Aug 8 - 2:49 PM

Starlin Castro (hamstring) did some light running on the field Friday prior to the Yankees' game against the Indians.

Castro, who has been sidelined since July 21 with a recurring hamstring injury, also took light hitting off of a tee and via soft toss. He's inching closer to a return, but it's still likely to be a few weeks away.
Aug 5 - 10:08 AM

Starlin Castro (hamstring) will begin some light jogging during the Yankees' road trip.

"I think he’s going to start doing some light jogging outside on this road trip and we’ll continue to progress with him," manager Joe Girardi said. It was just Monday that the skipper said Castro was "still a ways away," so we're almost surely looking at multiple weeks before the second baseman returns.
