Welington Castillo brought in the winning run in the top of the ninth inning in Tuesday's comeback win against the Pirates.
Castillo, who went 2-for-5, belted a solo home run in the eighth inning to reduce the Cubs' deficit to 8-6. After the Cubs tied the game at 8-8 in the ninth, Castillo brought in the go-ahead run with a ground out to second base against closer Mark Melancon. Castillo only has 17 plate appearances under his belt, but has two home runs and five RBI already. If the Cubs manage to trade Castillo during the season, his fantasy value will expand greatly as he's currently #3 on the Cubs' catching depth chart. Apr 21 - 10:36 PM
