Welington Castillo C CHC 57 Mins

Castillo (ribs) is back in the lineup Sunday against the Dodgers.

Castillo suffered a left rib contusion in Friday's contest, and although the team said he'd be available Saturday, they elected to take the conservative approach and give him another day of rest. He'll return to the backstop Sunday, however, and will catch starter Jacob Turner. The 27-year-old has had a strong finish to his 2014 season, batting .318 in the month of September.
