Finally! This is probably a delayed move but the Cubs called up 20 year old SS Starlin Castro from Double A. The Cubs will move Ryan Theriot to 2B. In responding move to the call-up, the Cubs sent down Chad Tracy.
The reason I think Tracy was sent down is Mike Fontenot and Jeff Baker are out of options. And until they can trade one of them, Tracy will be in the minors. I would rather keep Baker but lets see what Hendry does. I think one of them will be traded shortly.
I love this move, I wanted to see him out of spring training but needed more time in the minors. He is a way better defender than Theriot at SS and will hit arong what Theriot hits or even better. Castro is in today's lineup batting 8th and so is Theriot playing 2B and batting 1st.
In other moves, the Cubs promoted top pitching prospect Andrew Cashner to Triple A and 2nd best prospect Josh Vitters to Double A. Good to see this!
Lets see what happens tonight against the Reds.
