Starlin Castro hit a pair of solo homers Monday against the Mariners.
Castro has set a new career high with 17 homers this year, but even so, he hasn't been as productive as hoped. The sub-.300 OBP and mediocre defense at second base have left him a below average regular. Aug 23 - 1:30 AM

Starlin Castro went 2-for-4 with a homer and four RBI in Friday’s 6-3 win over the Rays.

Castro put the Yankees ahead twice on Friday, first on a two-run single in the fourth inning before putting them ahead for good with a two-run blast off Chris Archer in the sixth. The 26-year-old got off to a hot start in pinstripes back in April, but he has struggled to maintain it. He’s batting just .258/.296/.403 overall.

Starlin Castro is not in the Yankees' lineup Sunday.

It appears he's just getting a breather. Rob Refsnyder is handling second base. Alex Rodriguez is also listed on the Yanks' lineup card as a reserve, so if he's retiring it appears it won't be effective immediately.
Aug 7 - 9:56 AM

Starlin Castro crushed a grand slam and scored three times as the Yankees' offense came alive on Friday night.

New York put 13 runs on the scoreboard tonight and Castro was a major reason why. His bases loaded homer off Josh Tomlin in the third inning was the key blow of the night. He finished the game 2-for-3 and added two walks. The fantastic game boosts his slash line to .258/.298/.398 with 11 homers but he has still been a bit of a disappointment in his first season in pinstripes.

He's been hitting the ball with authority more in recent days -- the double was his third in three games -- and Castro is now hitting .288 this month. Castro is batting .261/.296/.410 with 36 RBI and 37 runs on the year.

Jul 17 - 11:25 PM

Starlin Castro went 4-for-4 with a run scored in Monday’s loss to the White Sox.

Castro’s return to Chicago went well, as he had two singles and two doubles. The 26-year-old was just 5-for-32 (.156) over his previous nine games. He’s batting .256/.292/.403 overall in his first season with New York.

Starlin Castro stroked three hits, scored a run and drove in two versus the Orioles on Saturday.

The 3-for-5 day boosted Castro’s batting average back up to .254 on the year. The Yankees’ second baseman had a great April but has struggled ever since. Perhaps this game will quiet down calls to give Rob Refsnyder the starting role.
