  • Twins' Willi Castro: Out of Friday's lineup

    Castro is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Tigers.

    Castro has just three hits in 32 plate appearances this season and will head to the bench Friday for the second consecutive contest. Kyle Farmer will man the hot corner and bat sixth in the series opener at Detroit.

  • Twins' Willi Castro: Not in Wednesday's lineup

    Castro is absent from the lineup Wednesday versus the Dodgers.

    Castro has been getting most of the starts at third base versus right-handed pitching since Royce Lewis (quadricep) landed on the injured list, but Dodgers righty Bobby Miller has reverse splits for his career. Kyle Farmer will get the nod at the hot corner in Castro's stead.

  • Twins' Willi Castro: Out of Monday's lineup

    Castro is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Dodgers.

    The switch-hitting Castro started the first seven games of the season but has a .130/.286/.130 slash line and will take a seat for Monday's contest. Jose Miranda, who was called up from Triple-A St. Paul earlier in the day, will start at third base and bat fifth.

  • Twins' Willi Castro: Draws fifth straight start

    Castro will start in center field and bat seventh in Wednesday's game against the Brewers.

    Castro looked set to begin the season in a super-utility role, but he's started every game since Royce Lewis suffered a severe quadricep strain in the March 28 win over the Royals. Though each of his previous three starts came at Lewis' old post at third base, Castro will cede the hot corner to Kyle Farmer in the series finale and instead patrol center field while the Twins give Byron Buxton a day at designated hitter. After swiping 33 bags in 2023, Castro has gotten off to a slow start on the basepaths through four games, as he was thrown out on his lone steal attempt.

  • Twins' Willi Castro: Takes over at third base

    Castro started at third base and went 1-for-2 with a walk and a caught stealing in Saturday's win at Kansas City.

    Castro and Kyle Farmer are expected to get the bulk of starts at third base with Royce Lewis out a month or more due to a quad injury. Castro will likely be the left-handed part of a platoon with Farmer, and the duo could get an extended run with top infield prospect Brooks Lee out several weeks with a back injury. Castro had 33 stolen bases last season and was caught just five times, so his out on the basepaths was a rare occurrence.

  • Twins' Willi Castro: Strong start to spring

    Castro started at shortstop and went 1-for-3 in Saturday's spring training loss to Philadelphia and has gone 4-for-10 overall this spring. He appears set for a multi-position utility role again this season, MLB.com reports.

    Castro had the best season of his career in 2023, as he became a solid utility player and a surprising source of stolen bases. Castro gained manager Rocco Baldelli's confidence on the basepaths and went 33-for-38 in steal attempts. The switch hitter will likely get most of his time in the outfield against left-handed pitching if the roster stays healthy, but he can fill in at almost any position but catcher if injuries strike.

  • Twins' Willi Castro: Gets $3 million

    Castro agreed to a one-year, $3 million contract with the Twins on Thursday, avoiding arbitration, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Castro took advantage of some injuries ahead of him on the depth chart in 2023 and had a breakout season, slashing .257/.339/.411 with nine home runs and 33 steals in 124 games. He is eligible at outfield and third base in fantasy leagues and should once again be a source of cheap speed while working in a super utility role.
