Castillo went 3-for-5 with two runs scored in Friday's win over the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Castillo returned to action after missing two games due to soreness in his elbow. He's still experiencing discomfort when swinging the bat, but is able to play through the issue by wearing a wrap. After he missed 80 games due to a suspension and another 12 in the minors preparing for his return to the majors, the White Sox will want to get Castillo as many starts behind the plate as possible. He's expected to be the team's primary catcher next season and missed significant time to establish a rapport with the White Sox's young starters.

Castillo was scratched from the lineup Wednesday against Cleveland for undisclosed reasons.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear if the change is injury-related or simply strategic -- the White Sox also altered their originally-released lineup prior to Tuesday's game for reasons that did not seem to have anything to do with an injury. Omar Narvaez will bat in Castillo's fifth spot as a designated hitter, while Kevan Smith will move from DH to catcher.
