Who on the Houston Astros will backup Jason Castro in 2016?
One of the stable parts of this Houston Astros team is their starting catcher Jason Castro. Although there has been quite a bit of a drop-off in his offensive production and lineup appearances, only hitting .211 with a .648 OPS and 11 home runs in 108 games, he has been a stable option behind the plate in his five years in an Astros uniform. Last season, Castro helped lead Astros pitching to a team 3.57 ERA and a .241 batting average against. With a stable defensive option to start behind the plate, there are many directions the Astros can go in to back up Castro.
