Add another name to the list, as Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports that Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro is getting into The Best Shape Of His Life:

The Cubs are making sure shortstop Starlin Castro reports to Spring Training in better shape. The team assigned strength and conditioning coach Tim Buss to the Dominican Republic to work with Castro for three weeks in November. In January, Castro will start workouts at the Cubs’ facility in the Dominican. …

“I think we felt like there’s no reason he can’t be a little faster and he can’t have more range than he does,” [general manager Jed] Hoyer said. “He’s at that age–he’s going to be 24 years old–where he’s going to start to put on a little bit of that man strength.”

Maybe, but I’m 30 now and still waiting for “a little bit of that man strength” to arrive.
