HARTFORD, Conn, (WTNH)- Starlin Castro might be good to go.
In a pair of games with the Yankees Double A affilaite, the Trenton Thunder, the All-Star second baseman showed no signs of the hamstring injury that sidelined him for two weeks and forced him to miss the MLB All-Star game in Miami.
On Friday night, Castro played his second game for the Thunder, he went 1 for 4 with a double. Castro also looked comfortable in the field turning a 4-4-3 double play.
In the series with Hartford, Castro is 2 for 7 and has played a smooth second base.
“I made a couple of double plays that I was moving quick. I don’t feel anything”, said Castro, “I feel really good now and I feel like I’ll be with the team soon.”
The Yankees continue their series with the Red Sox this weekend in Boston.
