Starlin Castro will be back in the Cubs lineup tuesday in Cincinnati against the Reds. Castro has been on the bereavement list since last week after the news of a deadly car accident claimed the lives of several people including a relative of Castro’s in the Dominican Republic. He has been out the last five games for the Cubs, after playing in every game up to that point this season.
With Starlin Castro back, the Cubs have optioned infielder Logan Watkins to Triple-A Iowa. Watkins played in 4 games while Starlin was gone, hitting .300 with 1 run scored and 3 RBI’s. On saturday, he went 2-4 with 2 RBI’s.
