J. Castro - C
Jason Castro went 0-for-2 with a strikeout on Friday in his minor-league rehab assignment debut with Triple-A Sugar Land.
Castro started behind the plate and caught five innings on Friday night. The 33-year-old backstop has been out since late-May due to left Achilles soreness. It will likely take him a few games to get re-acclimated before making his return to the Astros' lineup at some point soon.
