Castillo is out of Thursday's lineup against the Nationals, CSN Mid-Atlantic's Chase Hughes reports.

EDGE Analysis

He started the last seven games for the Diamondbacks, but will be replaced behind the dish by Tuffy Gosewisch on Thursday. Castillo mad significant gains in batting average and OBP this season over his 2015 numbers, but his owners likely drafted him with hopes of him replicating the 19 homers he hit last year, so the fact that he only has 14 long balls on the season comes as something of a disappointment.

Castillo went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Castillo connected for his 13th home run of the year with his eighth-inning solo shot off Sergio Romo. The long ball was his first since August 6, but he remained productive in the 17 games between homers by batting .333/.397/.449 with 21 RBI. The 29-year-old has tallied at least 13 round-trippers in each of the past three seasons, solidifying himself as a solid source of power behind the plate.

Castillo is out of the lineup Saturday against the Giants, the Arizona Republic's Nick Piecoro reports.

EDGE Analysis

Friday's game was a 12-inning affair, and Castillo went 0-for-6 with three strikeouts, so it's not surprising that he will get a chance to rest up Saturday. Tuffy Gosewisch will get the start behind the dish, batting eighth Saturday.

Castillo (shoulder) is back in the lineup Friday against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

A bout of trapezius muscle tightness led to Castillo's scratch from Wednesday's lineup, but evidently he's good to go following Thursday's team off day. Castillo owns a healthy .309/.374/.598 line against left-handed pitching this season, and while he's just 5-for-22 in his career against Friday's starter Madison Bumgarner, two of those hits went for home runs.
