White Sox Acquire Jose Castro

Let's keep track of the day's minor moves right here…

  • The White Sox have acquired infielder Jose Castro from the Reds according to Mark Gonzales of The Chicago Tribune (on Twitter). He was assigned to Triple-A Charlotte. Castro, 25, hit .306/.343/.354 in 318 plate appearances in Cincinnati's minor league system last year. He's a .262/.307/.314 career hitter in the minors and has never played in the big leagues.

I honestly have never heard of the guy, and I follow this stuff quite a bit. Looks to be a high-average low-power SS. The system is stacked with SS’s, so whatever.

could have been a waiver claim so then yes, or a player to be named later, or cash….most likely a waiver claim

I doubt they’d give away a league-minimum 25-year-old for free.
