8/25 Castillo returns

Catcher Welington Castillo was back in the Cubs’ lineup Sunday after missing a few days to rest sore ribs, injured Aug. 17 while making an awkward throw.

“We gave him enough days off and he’s feeling a lot better,” Cubs manager Dale Sveum said.

Castillo said he’s still a little tender, but doesn’t want to go on the disabled list with so little time remaining in the season.

“I’m not 100 percent but I have to get through the season,” said the catcher, who feels it more when he’s hitting than when he’s making a throw from behind the plate.

Castillo, who has not played since Wednesday, went 3-for-26 in the last eight games, and was batting .265 overall.
