News: Castro powered the Astros to a 4-2 win Thursday with a grand slam against the Rangers. Impact: Castro's 13th home run of the season came in the fifth inning off Texas reliever Roman Mendez. That's all the scoring the Astros would need on the night, although the former All-Star catcher contributed a single and a walk as well. Castro is slashing a disappointing .227/.297/.377 through 107 games this season.(RotoWire, )

News: Castro is out of the lineup Wednesday against the A's. Impact: Carlos Corporan will step in to catch starter Brad Peacock, as Castro sits following back-to-back starts. Castro is hitless in his last six games (0-for-20) and is now batting .205/.284/.288 for the month of August, but he figures to continue seeing the majority of the work behind the plate for the Astros.(RotoWire, )

News: Castro is out of the lineup Sunday against the Indians, Jose de Jesus Ortiz of the Houston Chronicle reports. Impact: With Sunday's game kicking off at 12:05 ET, Castro will get a breather after starting behind the plate the previous two nights. He's had a rather miserable series so far with five strikeouts in seven at-bats, but should still be a top pinch-hitting option for the Astros on Sunday.(RotoWire, )
