Castro is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Castro tallied two hits in Thursday's game and is 16-for-45 (.356) in his career against Orioles starter Yovani Gallardo, so it comes as a surprise that he is being held out Friday with Gallardo on the mound for the opponent. Regardless of the reason Castro is being held out, Ronald Torreyes will get the start at second base Friday night.

Castro went 2-for-4 with a double, a run and an RBI in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Castro delivered out of the cleanup spot, knocking in his first runs since Sept. 15. He surpassed last season's total of 69 RBI with this effort, but is still eight short of his career high set back in 2012. The 26-year-old has performed right in line with expectations during his first season with the Yankees.

Castro (hamstring) is back in the lineup Tuesday, hitting cleanup and manning the keystone.

EDGE Analysis

He made a pinch hit appearance Monday after missing the previous seven games with the injury, so it's no surprise to see him return in full Tuesday. Castro has hit a career-high 21 homers in his first year in the Bronx, so his owners have to be satisfied with his production. However, a .304 OBP and subpar defense at second base (according to Fangraphs), may leave the Yankees wishing for more production at the position if Castro doesn't show improvement in those areas next season.

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 (hamstring) remains out of the lineup Thursday against the Rays, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

This marks Castro's fourth straight absence and a possible return date remains up in the air. He was diagnosed with a Grade 1 hamstring strain last weekend -- the least severe type of strain, classified as "mild" -- but the team has not said definitively that Castro will play again this year.
