ESPN's projections: .246, 12 HRs, 42 RBIs

As a first-time starter it's unknown if Castillo can handle both the offensive and defensive duties of an everyday catcher. Even manager Dale Sveum said he didn't see what he wanted to at the plate for the .182 spring hitter. By all accounts he has improved calling a game, and that's his most important duty.
