Chicago White Sox should sign Jason Castro

The Chicago White Sox will likely have a backup catcher opening this offseason and they should try to sign Jason Castro to fill that spot.

Castro, 32, is entering free agency as his three-year, $24.5 million contract with the Minnesota Twins finishes up after the World Series.

In 2019, Castro hit .232/.332/.435 with 13 home runs and 30 RBI, serving as the backup to Mitch Garver. Castro’s stats were good for a 101 OPS+ and 0.7 bWAR.

The reason he should appeal to the Chicago White Sox, though, has more to do with his defense.
