Castro went 3-for-4 with an RBI double in Friday's 3-2 victory over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

His first-inning two-bagger plated Brett Gardner to open the scoring for the Yankees, and the 26-year-old followed with two subsequent singles for his sixth multi-hit outing of July. Castro is now slashing .304/.342./.449 in what has a chance to be his best month of the season to date.

Castro went 2-for-4 with a homer, a double and four RBI on Tuesday in the Yankees 7-1 beating of the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Castro's fist hit was a two-run shot to deep left in the second inning off Orioles starter Vance Worley. He later laced a two-run double into right field, giving him more than half of the Yankees RBI on the night. Castro now has 11 homers and is hitting .261 on the season as the Yankees everyday shortstop.

Castro went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

The move to the Yankees hasn't done anything to improve his on-base skills, as Castro's first-half slash line sits at .256/.293/.395, but with 10 home runs already he's at least on pace to top his previous career high of 14.

Castro went 4-for-4 with a pair of doubles in Monday's loss to the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Castro represented almost all of the Yankee offense in this one, as the rest of the lineup combined to match his four hits. After a hot April and a cold May, the second baseman has rounded into a more consistent form of late with numbers that mostly resemble his last season with the Cubs.

Castro is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

With Castro getting a rare day off, Ronald Torreyes will start at second base and bat ninth. Castro's .289 on-base percentage has yet to cost him any playing time, but he could eventually lose some at-bats to Torreyes and Rob Refsnyder if there isn't any hint of improvement.

Castro went 3-for-5 with a home run in Wednesday's win over the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

The homer was of the walk-off variety, as Castro sent Jason Motte's second pitch of the ninth inning into the left field seats to deliver the 9-8 victory. The second baseman cooled off a bit after a hot start, but he's bounced back and is hitting .288 with three long balls in June.

Castro went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Sunday's loss to the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Castro was one of the early season success stories on an otherwise struggling Yankee offense, but following a rough May, his slash line now sits at .249/.286/.407. The second baseman has still seen a bump in the power department with seven home runs, but otherwise his numbers fall more in line with the last few seasons rather than indicating the career resurgence they appeared to at first.

Castro will get the start at shortstop Thursday against the Tigers, the Bergen Record's Pete Caldera reports.

EDGE Analysis

This will be Castro's first start of the season at shortstop, with Didi Gregorius getting the day off and Rob Refsnyder starting at second base. Castro represents a defensive downgrade at shortstop for New York, but it's possible he could continue to see the occasional start there as the Yankees attempt to get going offensively. To this point, Gregorius has been a bottom-10 starting shortstop offensively, and his negative 0.2 WAR on Fangraphs is actually second to last among qualified shortstops.

Castro is out of Wednesday's lineup in Toronto, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's been a rough month for Castro, who hit .200 in May after hitting .305 in April. Bad luck has been the primary culprit, as Castro has a .222 BABIP since the end of April, so he's certainly capable of getting going again. Ronald Torreyes will get the start at second base and hit ninth Wednesday.

Castro had the Yankees' lone hit Sunday against the Rays' Jake Odorizzi, a two-run homer that was enough to create the margin of victory.

EDGE Analysis

After Sunday's game Castro is now hitting .253/.287/.425, which is sub-optimal for a team's #3 hitter. And yet that was the highest slugging percentage in the lineup, with Carlos Beltran out with a sore shoulder.
