The contract covers four years of arbitration eligibility and three years of free agency, and includes a $16 million option for 2020. Castro, 22, was projected to qualify for salary arbitration as a “Super Two” player at the end of the year.
When contacted by ESPNdeportesLosAngeles.com, Castro’s agent, Paul Kinzer, said he would not comment on the Dominican shortstop’s new contract because the sides are still in the process of negotiating.
Castro entered Saturday batting .278 with 12 home runs, 19 steals, 58 RBIs and 58 runs scored this season — his third in the majors. He has a career average of .297 in 400 games.
No brainer. There are only 2 guys on this team that are untouchable building blocks and besides Rirro getting the call up in June this is by far and away the best moment of the season. 2012 Cubs, fucking love it!
Don’t know if you guys listened to the latest episode of KFC radio but you should be every week. Anyway, listening to KFC and Feitelberg complain for 30 minutes about who’s baseball team was more miserable was pretty sweet. It was like being the obese awkward virgin listening to his two high school friends complain about bad blow jobs. Hey fellas, at the end of the day at least you’re still getting your dick sucked.
