Luis Castillo Impressive in Debut


When the best compliment Charlie Manuel can give you is that you looked "in shape" you might want to consider showing up earlier to BP.

On Wednesday former Mets second baseman Luis Castillo made his spring training debut with the Phillies. In the 4-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays Castillo grounded out twice, popped out once, going 0 for 4. No one was expecting a lot from him immediately and the Phillies have seven more spring training games after Wednesday where he can put forth his best effort to piss all over the memory of the late Chase Utley.

never forget.

The guy to keep an eye on though is Michael Martinez. The energetic Rule 5 pick has been on (spring training) fire at third base, and he can play three infield positions and centerfield. With Placido Polanco set to expire like Stop-and-Shop lunchmeat you may want see if Martinez is still available on the waiver wire in your NL East-Only Spring-Training Fantasy League.
