News: Castro signed a one-year, $4 million contract with the Astros on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports.
Impact: Castro caught 114 games for the Astros in 2014, and also served as the designated hitter for a handful of games. He struggled at the dish, however, finishing the campaign with a .222/.286.366 batting line, 14 home runs and 56 RBI. Castro figures to enter the season as the top catcher for the Astros again, but will have a new stable of catchers available behind him in Hank Conger and Evan Gattis.
