Marlins acquired INFs Starlin Castro and Jose Devers, and RHP Jorge Guzman from the Yankees for OF Giancarlo Stanton and cash considerations.
Castro’s stay with the Marlins figures to be brief. The primary objective for the Marlins was to shed Stanton’s contract, so they didn’t receive the top prospects fans were hoping for here, but they should get some decent pieces back for Castro. The 27-year-old is owed $24 million over the next two seasons and batted .300/.338/.545 with 16 homers over 112 games in 2017. Dec 11 - 11:01 AM

USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the Marlins "say they're not desperate to move Starlin Castro."

Castro is part of the return from the Yankees in the Giancarlo Stanton trade that should be official any time now. The Marlins are going to continue to shed payroll, but, at least publicly, they're saying they don't have to flip Castro and the relatively affordable $24 million he's owed over the next two seasons. Realistically, though, there's no doubt they'll trade him if they receive a decent offer. The Mets are one club that's already been mentioned as a potential landing spot.

Mike Puma of the New York Post notes that the Mets plan to speak with the Marlins' regarding newly-acquired second baseman Starlin Castro.

Castro will head to the Marlins in the Giancarlo Stanton trade, but it's expected that the Marlins will then flip him elsewhere to shed his salary. The Mets have also been linked to Ian Kinsler, Jason Kipnis and Josh Harrison.
Dec 9 - 12:23 PM

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that Starlin Castro is expected to be a part of the package that heads to the Marlins in the Giancarlo Stanton trade.

The Yankees needed to find a way to dump some salary in the trade, and it sounds like the Marlins were not receptive to the idea of taking on Jacoby Ellsbury. Castro, who is still only 27 years old, is coming off a terrific season where he slashed .300/.338/.454 with 16 homers and 63 RBI in 112 games. He has two years and $22.7 million remaining on his contract, as well as a club option for $16 million ($1 million buyout) for 2020. Moving Castro means that top prospect Gleyber Torres could begin the year as the starting second baseman.

Starlin Castro socked a solo home run and reached base four times in Tuesday's win over the Rays.

Castro led off the bottom of the second inning with a blast off of Blake Snell in what turned out to be a four-run frame for the Yankees. He later added a walk and a couple singles. Castro has struggled in September overall but has reached base eight times over his last three contests.
Sep 26 - 10:34 PM

Starlin Castro is not in Monday's lineup versus the Royals.

The Yankees and Royals are playing a makeup game Monday afternoon at Yankee Stadium. Ronald Torreyes will make the start at second base and bat ninth against Jake Junis.
Sep 25 - 10:06 AM

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.
