Sveum considers break for Castro
CHICAGO – Shortstop Starlin Castro, arguably the Cubs’ best everyday player, doesn’t get too many days off.
He’s started all 64 games this season, but a seat on the bench for a mental break might be on the horizon. Entering Saturday’s game against the Red Sox, Castro owned a .203 batting average in June with 16 strikeouts and a walk in 14 games. He was mired in 1-for-17 slump, which includes seven strikeouts, dropping his average to .292.
“It's a possibility I've thought about just to be able to sit back,” manager Dale Sveum said. “And it might be coming pretty close because it looks like he's pressing a little bit at the plate. We'll see. He's still a huge asset on that field every day though.”
