MESA, Ariz. — All-Star shortstop Starlin Castro is likely to remain sidelined with that tight hamstring at least through the weekend, manager Dale Sveum said Friday morning.
“We’ll probably look more towards Monday than this weekend,” the manager said. “We’ve got a lot of games left. We don’t have to do anything [too quickly] that way.”
Castro left Wednesday’s game when his left hamstring tightened while running out a grounder.
The two-time All-Star said Thursday afternoon he felt much better, said he’d only miss a couple of days, and even jogged slightly as he headed to the field for his match in the camp bunting tournament.
