Jason Castro went 4-for-4 Sunday with a run scored in the loss to Oakland.
The Astros are off to their worst 50-game start in club history at 14-36, but they have at least one bright spot with their young catcher Jason Castro. Castro has 10 hits in his last 12 at-bats with two home runs, a double, four RBI, and four runs scored in his last three starts. Castro now has five home runs in the month of May after hitting just one in the first month of the season. Castro could provide value in two catcher leagues, or even more so in Daily League contests while he is hot, and his price is still on the cheap at just about a 6% cost to your salary cap.

The Fantasy Nomad, Michael Pichan, nailed it with his recommendation on Castro... He is one of the only true bright spots in Houston these days... On a separate note, I would not have expected Houston to have 14 wins in the first 50 games... As bad as they are playing... and it is BAD... They are still exceeding my expectations (which were to win about 40 games on the season).
