News: Castillo went 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in Friday's 6-3 victory over the Cardinals. Impact: Castillo's deep drive in the top of the 11th inning was his second of the year and ended up being the difference in the game Friday night. The 26-year-old catcher is only batting .212 so far through eight games, but has driven in five. Castillo is a decent option in NL-only and two-catcher formats.(RotoWire, )
