With a Free-For-All pick in the 2014 MotownSports.com Adopt-A-Tiger Draft Extravaganza, TigersFan81371 selects Harold Castro Second Baseman Photo by Potthole Born: 11/30/93 Birthplace: Caracas, Venezuela Height: 6'0" Weight: 145 Bats: Left Throws: Right Signed by the Tigers as an international free agent on March 15, 2011. MiLB.com Profile Page Baseball-Reference.com Page Here is a brief blurb from a page of free TigsTown.com content that was posted prior to the 2013 season: Here's a brief scouting report that Jordan Gorosh wrote for Bless You Boys after seeing Castro this past season: Click here for a more detailed write-up that Brian Sakowski wrote for Bless You Boys prior to the 2013 season. Castro made his professional debut in 2011 as a member of the VSL Tigers and posted a nice .313/.352/.365/.717 slash line with 24 steals in 63 games. The organization brought him stateside for 2012, and he turned in a nice .311/.343/.420/.763 slash line in 51 games with the GCL Tigers. He began 2013 in extended spring training before being joining the Lakeland Flying Tigers in May. He singled in his very first LFT at-bat and scored the only run of the game in a 2-1 loss to Clearwater. In 21 games at the High-A level, he turned in a respectable .274/.316/.329/.645 slash line. When the organization decided to promote Devon Travis from West Michigan to Lakeland at the end of June, Castro was sent down to the Whitecaps to take Travis' place there. Castro went hitless in his first two games for the 'Caps. It's likely that he'll always remember his third game, which took place on July 2nd against the Great Lakes Loons at Dow Diamond in Midland. The game was tied 3-3 in the top of the 9th. Castro (who had notched his first hit, first stolen base and first run as a member of the 'Caps back in the 5th inning) stepped to the plate with one out. He then hit what would turn out to be the game winning home run! Click here to see it. (I was disappointed about missing that game. It turned out to the only game in Midland that Castro would play in.) Unfortunately, there weren't many highlights for Castro during his 41-game stint in West Michigan. He finished the season with a .231/.240/.313/.553 slash line. Castro will likely return to the Whitecaps to begin the 2014 season, and it'll be interesting to see what this talented, but still raw, player can do over the course of a full-season.
