Castro went 1-for-4 with one RBI and a couple of strikeouts in Saturday's win over the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

The run-scoring single ended up proving to be the difference, as the Yankees went on to win 2-1. For much of the season, Castro was on pace to set new career bests in home runs and RBI but he was ultimately slowed down after missing a month with a hamstring injury following the All-Star break. Still, with one game to go in the season, the second baseman carries a .301/.339/.455 slash line that would all rate as his highest totals since 2011.

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

EDGE Analysis

Castro heads to the bench after starting the past seven games, including a 2-for-5 day at the plate during Wednesday's victory. Outside of that contest, Castro had accumulated just two hits since Sept. 5. In his place, Ronald Torreyes gets the start at the keystone, while batting eighth in the order.

Castro went 1-for-5 with a solo home run during Thursday's win over Baltimore.

EDGE Analysis

Castro is now 17-for-48 (.354 batting average) with two homers, 10 RBI and eight runs through 12 games since returning from the disabled list on Aug. 25. He's locked into the heart of the Yankee lineup and appears set to make up for lost time over the final weeks of the season.

Castro (teeth) will start at second base and bat cleanup Sunday against the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Castro was unavailable Saturday after undergoing an emergency root canal, but it didn't take long for him to recover from the dental procedure. He'll return to his usual spot in the heart of the batting order and should be on tap for a full slate of starts entering the upcoming week.

Castro had an emergency root canal Saturday morning, which is why he is out of the lineup, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

He apparently lost a fake tooth Friday night, so he had to undergo the dental procedure. Despite it being a matinee against the Red Sox, manager Joe Girardi expects Castro to be available off the bench, meaning he would likely be able to slot into the lineup again Sunday

Castro is out of Saturday's lineup against the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

He will take a seat after starting the last three games at the keystone. Castro is hitting .276/.323/.379 with three doubles in 29 at-bats since returning from a hamstring injury on Aug. 25. Ronald Torreyes will start at second base and hit ninth.

Castro is out of the lineup for the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

Castro is hitting .375 in his four games since returning from the disabled list, but because the infielder only recently got over the setback with his hamstring, the Yankees are understandably reluctant to use him in both halves of the twin bill. It's expected that Castro will reenter the starting nine for Game 2, though his absence in the first contest will allow Ronald Torreyes to pick up a start at the keystone.

Castro went 4-for-4 with a pair of runs scored and an RBI in Sunday's win over the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

With the game already comfortably in hand, Castro was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning, but he was still able to match a career-best with the four hit showing. The second baseman is now 6-for-12 since missing over a month with a hamstring injury, so it looks like that issue is fully behind him as the season heads toward the stretch run.

Castro (hamstring) will be activated from the 10-day disabled list prior to Friday's game against the Mariners, Sweeny Murti of Sports Radio WFAN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Castro returns to the big leagues after spending over a month on the disabled list with another hamstring issue. The second baseman has missed over 45 games during the past couple months due to the lingering injury, but appears to be ready for action following six rehab appearances with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Castro will regain his position atop the depth chart at second base, and should be back in the lineup for Friday's contest.
