Tigers' Willi Castro: Out of Sunday's lineup

Castro is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles. Castro has been hot lately, slashing .367/.375/.533 across his last 10 games, but he'll get a day off Sunday. Detroit activated both Austin Meadows (illness) and Victor Reyes (quadriceps) before the game, and the two are starting in the outfield along with Robbie Grossman. Castro should still see some playing time if he continues to hit, but he now has more competition for starts.

Tigers' Willi Castro: Gets fourth consecutive start

Castro will start in center field and bat seventh in Thursday's game against the Athletics. Castro will stick in the lineup for the fourth game in a row, with all of his starts coming in the outfield during that stretch. Though Castro hasn't yet established himself as an everyday player, manager A.J. Hinch will likely continue to keep the 25-year-old in the lineup while he's one of the few hitters on the roster swinging a hot bat. Over his last three starts, Castro has gone 5-for-11 with a walk and a run.

Tigers' Willi Castro: Keeps rolling Thursday

Castro went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Thursday's loss to the Athletics. Making his fourth consecutive start, Castro kept producing at the plate, as he's gone 7-for-15 during this stretch. He's not quite yet an everyday player, but the 25-year-old is getting an extended look, and he could continue to push Derek Hill for time in center field. Castro is now batting .325 on the season across 16 games.

Tigers' Willi Castro: Gets call to majors

The Tigers recalled Castro from Triple-A Toledo on Sunday. Castro will provide the Tigers with some reinforcement in the infield following Javier Baez's (thumb) placement on the injured list Saturday. While Baez is out, the switch-hitting Castro could fill the smaller side of a platoon at shortstop with the lefty-hitting Harold Castro.

Tigers' Willi Castro: Removed from Triple-A lineup

Castro was removed from Saturday's lineup at Triple-A Toledo, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Javier Baez (thumb) was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday, and it seems likely that Castro will join the major-league club to provide depth at shortstop. Even if the 24-year-old is ultimately called up, Harold Castro should serve as the Tigers' primary shortstop in Baez's absence.

Tigers' Willi Castro: Beginning season in Triple-A

Castro will begin the 2022 season with Triple-A Toledo, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports. Castro batted .296 with four extra-base hits and five runs over 27 at-bats this spring, but he'll start the year in Triple-A. With his ability to play almost all the positions on the field, the 24-year-old will likely rejoin the big-league club relatively soon. In 125 games with the Tigers in 2021, Castro slashed .220/.273/.351 with 24 extra-base hits, 38 RBI, 56 runs and nine stolen bases.
