Change Blowing in Windy City – Cubs Recall Prospect
The Cubs, who are off to a slow start at 13-16, and were just swept by Pittsburgh, decided to make a change. They called up their top prospect, shortstop Starlin Castro.
Castro was tearing it up for Double-A Tennessee hitting .376 with 20 runs, 1 HR, 20 RBIs, and 4 SBs. He not only should give them a boost offensively, but should improve them defensively as well. Ryan Theriot will likely move over to second to accomodate Castro. Mike Fontenot will move to a utility role, which bolsters their bench.
You can try to get ahead of the curve in deep leagues by picking up Castro, but in normal leagues just take a wait-and-see approach with him.
