6/26 Handle with care
Welington Castillo was back in the Cubs’ lineup Thursday after getting a one day breather. Castillo was activated from the disabled list on Sunday, and the Cubs don’t want the catcher to overdo it. Castillo arrived Sunday at Wrigley Field from his rehab assignment with Triple-A Iowa, where he played back to back games.
“For him, it’s a little like Spring Training again,” manager Rick Renteria said. “We have to make sure we use him wisely.”
John Baker, who has been matched up with Jason Hammel, caught Edwin Jackson on Wednesday. Castillo was behind the plate Monday and Tuesday this week.
