Seattle Mariners C Welington Castillo will make his third start for the Mariners Sunday, May 24, against the Toronto Blue Jays. It will be Castillo's third start in four games.
Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is quickly supplanting Mike Zunino as the Mariners' regular catcher. At the minimum cost, Castillo has been able to exceed his price in each of his first two games. Castillo is also worth a look in AL-only leagues or deeper, mixed leagues.

Seattle Mariners C Welington Castillo is in the lineup Friday, May 22, against the Toronto Blue Jays. Castillo is serving as designated hitter, and OF Dustin Ackley is out of the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has an .091 average but has scored two runs and driven in one. Despite the low average, he may be worth the risk if you're not looking to spend too much money on a catcher.

Seattle Mariners C Welington Castillo will start Thursday, May 21, and he will catch SP J.A. Happ.
Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) may be tested as Happ's personal catcher during this game. Castillo may get more starts, especially if Mike Zunino falters, so keep an eye on how Castillo does.

Seattle Mariners C Welington Castillo will be activated to the 40-man roster Wednesday, May 20. Mariners C Jesus Sucre was optioned to Class AAA Tacoma.
Fantasy Tip: It is unclear if Castillo ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will start Wednesday on the road against the Baltimore Orioles. Fantasy owners should let him settle into his new home before tossing him into lineups, yet there is mild appeal given his basement price point.

The Seattle Mariners acquired Chicago Cubs C Welington Castillo in exchange for RP Yoervis Medina Tuesday, May 19.
Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has all-universe value as a No. 2 fantasy catcher and could earn extra playing time if C Mike Zunino doesn't get on track soon. Castillo is a cheap source of cap relief on FantasyScore. Medina has no fantasy value at this time.

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is out of the lineup Thursday, May 14, with C Welington Castillo in his place.
Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($1,600, 3.2% of your cap) is hitting just .194 and isn't a good play on FantasyScore.

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is not in the batting order Tuesday, April 21, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. C Welington Castillo is hitting instead.
Fantasy Tip: Montero ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) looks like he is getting a standard night off. Castillo ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) may not be a bad option for starters looking to go cheap on the catcher spot, but catchers like Texas Rangers starter Carlos Corporan ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) may be a better bet.

Chicago Cubs C Welington Castillo is still being shopped by the team since they have Cs Miguel Montero and David Ross on the roster. The Philadelphia Phillies have shown interest in Castillo.
Fantasy Tip: It looks like Castillo is the third catcher on the depth chart at this point, so it would help his value if he is traded. At this point, Castillo should not be an option in drafts but would have value if he becomes a starting catcher elsewhere.
