11/6 AFL update
Starlin Castro went 2-for-6 in the Mesa Solar Sox’s 11-1 romp over Surprise on Friday. Castro leads the Arizona Fall League with a .424 average, and he’ll play Saturday in the Rising Stars game at Surprise Stadium. The Cubs’ highly touted shortstop was to have been joined by third baseman Josh Vitters, but he was scratched because of a strained pectoral muscle, suffered Wednesday in batting practice. Vitters was day to day. Saturday’s game will be broadcast on the MLB Network.
