Castro had a cortisone shot in his wrist Saturday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Yankees manager Joe Girardi revealed that this discomfort in Castro's wrist that preceded the shot has lasted about six weeks. Right now, it's unknown whether Castro will miss some time or he will continue to play through the pain. The 27-year-old is hitting .315 in 311 plate appearances this season, and his .295 average in June, including five home runs and 17 RBI this month, did not suggest that he was playing hurt.

Castro is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the A's.

EDGE Analysis

He'll get a rare day off Saturday as Ronald Torreyes takes over at second base as the Yankees get set to face Jesse Hahn. Castro is in the midst of a career season for the Yankees, slashing .330/.367/.523 with 25 extra-base hits and 43 RBI in 65 games. Look for him to rejoin the lineup for Sunday's series finale.

Castro went 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBI in Saturday's win over the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

All of Castro's damage -- including a 452-foot home run that forced out Baltimore starter Chris Tillman -- came in the first four innings, as he was able to head to the bench for some rest early with the club up 14-0 by the time his spot came up in the fifth inning. The 27-year-old is enjoying a career year so far, slashing .324/.360/.521 with 11 homers -- all on pace to be career-highs.

Castro went 2-for-4 with a double, a solo homer and two runs Saturday against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Castro was the third of four Yankees to leave the yard against Jason Grilli in the eighth inning of a winning effort. He continues to be an excellent surprise for fantasy owners, and with his .321/.358/.487 slash line, he should remain in lineups until he proves otherwise.

Castro wnet 1-for-3 with a two-run homer Friday against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Castro's eighth bomb of the year pulled the Yankees within a run in the sixth inning of a road loss. The 27-year-old is continuing his breakout season with a slash line of .318/.356/.479, and he's proving to be one of the best values from fantasy drafts this year.

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.
