BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2007 What generally separates a lot of Triple-A second basemen from major league utility jobs is their inability to run and spot in the outfield. If you can do that, you get opportunities. Though not a prospect by any means, Castro can do that. Of course, it doesn`t hurt that he`s playing for a GM and assistant GM who once thought that keeping Wilton Guerrero around was a good idea.
2006 Your basic speed demon with no power, Castro would be a fit in the lineup if John McGraw managed the O`s. He`s got no arm at all, effectively limiting him to second base and making it hard to carry him as pinch-runner. Picked up by the Nationals, he should get reasonable playing time backing up the always-fragile Jose Vidro. His lack of power will hardly be noticed in RFK.
