  • Twins' Willi Castro: Gets $3 million

    Castro agreed to a one-year, $3 million contract with the Twins on Thursday, avoiding arbitration, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Castro took advantage of some injuries ahead of him on the depth chart in 2023 and had a breakout season, slashing .257/.339/.411 with nine home runs and 33 steals in 124 games. He is eligible at outfield and third base in fantasy leagues and should once again be a source of cheap speed while working in a super utility role.

  • Twins' Willi Castro: Goes deep in victory

    Castro went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer in Tuesday's 7-0 win over Cincinnati.

    Castro reached on an infield single in the fifth inning before hitting a towering, two-run homer in the seventh that extended Minnesota's lead to 6-0. In 15 games since returning from an oblique injury Sept. 3, the switch-hitting speedster has posted a slash line of .291/.333/.545 with three home runs, seven RBI, 11 runs and two steals across 61 plate appearances. Castro has started 14 of 16 games since his return and figures to maintain his everyday role given his positional versatility and the fact that Carlos Correa is once again dealing with plantar fasciitis.

  • Twins' Willi Castro: Homers, tallies three hits

    Castro went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double and two runs scored in Saturday's 8-4 victory over the Mets.

    Castro doubled in the bottom of the second before coming around to score on a Donovan Solano single, making it a 2-2 game. The left fielder then added a solo homer in the eighth to extend Minnesota's lead to four runs, and he finished with three hits on the day -- his first time accomplishing that feat since July 18. Castro is now batting .471 in September and has recorded multiple hits in three of his last five games.
