Castro (hamstring) was able to take batting practice on the field prior to Saturday's game against the Blue Jays, LoHud.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Joe Girardi had previously indicated it was unlikely Castro would return during the weekend set, and while that outlook may still hold true, it's an encouraging sign that the second baseman was able to hit on the field after he was also able to take swings in a cage Friday. If he does indeed remain out for the remainder of the Toronto series, Castro's next chance to slot back into the lineup will come Monday against the Red Sox.

Manager Joe Girardi said Friday that he does not expect Castro (hamstring) to return during the Blue Jays series, Brendan Kuty of NJ.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Castro was said to be "a little more optimistic" about his chances to play before the team leaves Toronto, but it sounds like we probably won't see him again until the Yankees return home to New York. He suffered a Grade 1 hamstring strain last weekend and will miss his fifth straight start Friday.

Castro, who is not in Sunday's lineup, underwent an MRI that revealed a Grade 1 right hamstring strain.

EDGE Analysis

Castro will remain at Yankee Stadium on Sunday to undergo treatment, with the hope he'll be able to join the team in Tampa Bay on Tuesday. Donovan Solano will fill in for Castro at the keystone Sunday, and could be in line for extra reps during the season's final weeks if the Yankees decide to take a conservative approach with the veteran's ailment.

Castro was removed from Saturday's game against the Red Sox in the top of the fifth inning with an apparent hamstring injury, David Lennon of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

After reaching second base on a double, Castro was clutching the back of his right leg near the hamstring area and was quickly removed from the game. Ronald Torreyes entered the contest to pinch-run for Castro, who will likely be evaluated in the locker room. Expect the Yankees to provide an update on Castro's condition during or shortly after the game concludes.

Castro went 2-for-4 with a home run on Monday against the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

The second baseman has been struggling in September after a hot August, hitting just .211 after Monday's multi-hit game. On the positive side, Castro now has 21 home runs -- seven better than his previous career high. Home runs aside, Castro is putting together a very similar season to what he produced a year ago in Chicago.
