Twins reportedly deal Castillo to Mets

Postby raw skillz » Mon Jul 30, 2007 5:24 pm

The Twins are close to a deal that would send second baseman Luis Castillo to the Mets in exchange for two Minor League prospects, The Star Tribune is reporting.

Crediting a Major League source, the newspaper reported the Twins would likely receive two prospects in the deal: Double-A catcher Drew Butera, the son of former Major League catcher Sal Butera, and Class A outfielder Dustin Martin.

If this is true, I think the real fantasy impact would be Alexi Casilla getting called up for the Twins. The guy is a stolen base monster (24SB in 320 minor league ABs). He's considered a young version of Castillo, and if he could get his average up to the 290s, he could be a nice addition if you're looking for steals. In an early season callup, he swiped 4 in 14 games...
