White Sox interested in Astros catcher Jason Castro


Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com and Bruce Levine of CBS Chicago both report that the White Sox are interested in Astros catcher Jason Castro.

Houston just acquired catcher Hank Conger from the Angels, perhaps making the 27-year-old Castro more expendable.

He made the All-Star team in 2013, but hit just .222 with a .651 OPS in 126 games this season, including an ugly 151/34 K/BB ratio.

Chicago’s starting catcher, Tyler Flowers, was similarly bad this season and has no real track record of big-league success, so the White Sox would be betting on Castro bouncing back with two seasons of team control remaining.
