Welington Castillo 2018 Outlook

Recommended Posts

I like and hate the Duke of Welington. I love his hit tool and think with that alone he is an impact catcher and can land Top 5 if given adequate playing time. I HATE his approach at the plate. The man only walks when he decides to rest his arms for the next at bat and the pitcher can't hit the strike zone. This will of course limit his ability to score runs, but the average and power are real. His Hard hit% and LD% are great. The ballpark should help as well. Sleeper.

according to yahoo almost the same distance on both nice. 20 HR a realistic target with upside.

 

NICE!

Top 5 catcher upside, imo, especially with injuries to Perez, Realmuto and Zunino to start the year.

I just picked him up, with Gattis off to a slow start. I’m not sure what to expect, but based off those statistics posted above, I think he was worth a flier.

Sounded like general leg soreness, would expect him to miss too much time

Any word how long he is going to be missing games?  Starting to think about cutting bait.

Hoping he turns things around. Had high expectations for him to be a top 10 catcher. Picked up mccann on detroit in the meantime..

He was pretty useful, which speaks more to how bad the C spot is.

Damn just realized he won’t be eligible for the playoffs.  Big blow for the Sox.

Does anyone know what he actually tested positive for? Reports say it’s not a steroid so I’m wondering if it’s another masking agent.
