Castro went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Friday's loss to the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

The effort extends Castro's hitting streak to six straight, four of which have been of the multi-hit variety. The 27-year-old currently leads the American League with his .352 average and all of baseball with 57 hits, while also remaining on pace to top the career-best 21 home runs he belted in 2016. While he may cool down a bit over the remainder of the season, there's no reason to think the three-time All Star isn't in line for his best season yet.

Castro went 2-for-5 with a home run, double, three RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's 11-6 win over Houston.

EDGE Analysis

Castro contributed in a big way to the Yankees' victory in game one of a doubleheader Sunday. He now has 16 hits in the month of May, and has raised his slash line to an impressive .343/.378/.543 on the season. The 27-year-old infielder is making good on his immense potential with the bat, and should be an automatic in your fantasy lineup.

Castro is not in the lineup Monday against the Reds, Pete Caldera of The Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

After going 0-for-8 during Sunday's 18-inning marathon win over the Cubs, Castro will head to the bench for a breather as Ronald Torreyes takes over at the keystone. Castro will look to pick up where he left off when he returns to the lineup, as the 27-year-old is sporting a healthy .355/.395/.545 triple slash to go along with six homers and 21 RBI through 29 games this season.

Castro went 3-for-4 with a double, a two-run home run, two runs and three RBI during Saturday's win over the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

After six seasons with Chicago, Saturday's outing was probably an enjoyable one for Castro. The 27-year-old second baseman is currently leading the American League in hits (43) and batting average (.381), and the rest of Castro's stat line is also impressive: 20 runs, six home runs, 19 RBI and a 1.006 OPS. While it's easy to project that there will be negative regression ahead for Castro, he did post high-end numbers early in his career, and he's now in the heart of his prime.

Castro went 3-for-5 with a home run, two runs scored and two RBI in Friday's 14-11 extra-inning win over the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

His two-run shot off Brad Brach in the ninth inning, Castro's fifth homer of the season, sent the game into extras. The second baseman's blistering start to 2017 continues, and he's now slashing .361/.398/.578 with 16 RBI and 12 runs scored in 21 games.

Castro went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer and a walk Saturday against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Castro's fourth bomb of the year was a three-run shot that started an 11-run eruption that resulted in the Yankees victory. He's been red hot throughout April with a .364 batting average, and he should be kept in fantasy lineups until he runs into a slump.

Castro went 3-for-4 with two doubles and two runs during Monday's win over the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

This was the seventh multi-hit game of the season for Castro, and the veteran has put together a strong start to the campaign with a .356/.389/.538 slash line. He's been bouncing all over the lineup the past eight games but hasn't dropped lower than fifth, so hitting in the heart of a clicking lineup is a nice fantasy boon and helps his floor. Second base is a deep fantasy position, but Castro is quickly proving to be a serviceable asset in the majority of settings.

Castro went 2-for-4 with a run during Wednesday's 8-4 win over Tampa Bay to improve his hitting streak to five games.

EDGE Analysis

Castro's best fantasy seasons might be in the rearview mirror now that he doesn't run anymore, but he's still a serviceable middle infielder in deeper settings. He's hardly missed any time through his first seven years in the league and can provide a respectable return in the runs, home runs, RBI and batting average columns. Playing his home games at hitter-friendly Yankee Stadium is a nice boost, too.

Castro will start at second base and bat sixth in the order in Sunday's game against the Rays, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Castro turned in a productive spring, batting .300 with five extra-base hits in 50 at-bats during Grapefruit League play. After smacking a career-high 21 homers last season, Castro looks to be one of the better power-hitting options at the keystone, but his low on-base percentage and diminishing stolen base totals will probably prevent him from taking his fantasy value up another notch.

Castro was given a full day off Friday, as he didn't travel to the team's spring game or go through workouts, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

The day off had been planned, as manager Joe Girardi is trying to not overwork some of his veteran players in the early goings of spring training. Castro was one of the more dependable forces in the lineup in his first year in pinstripes, setting a career high with 21 home runs while hitting .290 over the second half of the season. The 26-year-old also provided serviceable defense after making the transition to second base, and he'll be tabbed to man the everyday duties at the keystone once again in 2017.
