Ramon Castro recorded the second two-homer game of his career and just the eighth three-hit game of his career, helping the White Sox beat the Mariners on Thursday. Castro homered once against a fastball and once against a changeup Thursday, his first hit against a changeup ALL SEASON! Since the start of 2007, Castro has handled fastballs well, but struggled with the change.
Inside Edge has scouted, by video, 52 of Castro's 60 career HR, and his first HR on Thursday was the ONLY one of those 52 to come against a changeup. Inside Edge has scouted almost half of his career AB (996 of 2117) and in those, Castro is hitting .172 and slugging .230 against changeups, while hitting .258 and slugging .483 against fastballs.
