Castillo went 2-for-6 with three RBI in Wednesday's win over the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

Absences on the paternity and bereavement lists have limited Castillo to only 13 games so far in August, but it's been a terrifically productive span -- he's hitting .354 for the month and averaging an RBI per game. Chris Herrmann is on his way back, which could impact Castillo's playing time down the stretch, but for the time being, he makes for a strong start at catcher most nights.

Castillo was placed on the Paternity Leave List on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Per league rules, Castillo will be required to miss at least one game but no more than three games, so he'll sit out Tuesday's matchup with the Mets before a potential return Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. In a corresponding move, the Diamondbacks recalled Double-A catcher Oscar Hernandez to temporarily provide some depth with Chris Herrmann on the DL.
