Candidate to lead off Castro is a candidate to bat leadoff this season, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.
Impact Castro batted .349 with a .381 on-base percentage during the shortened 2020 campaign, though his success was fueled by an atypically high .448 BABIP. The team might not put the pressure of leading off onto the 23-year-old's shoulders right out of the gate, and veteran Robbie Grossman is an option for the top spot to start the regular season. However, a hot start by Castro could force manager A.J. Hinch's hand.
