Welington Castillo in Futures Game

Congratulations to Welington Castillo, catcher for the Tennessee Smokies, on his selection to the World Team in the Futures Game. Castillo, the only representative from the Cubs system, actually began the year in Daytona. While he hit a respectable .273 for Daytona, his productivity seemed to take off after the promotion. In 18 games at AA, Castillo is hitting .333 with 4 HR's (he didn't have a HR at Daytona). In half as many AB's, he already has more RBI's than he did at Daytona. He was named a Florida State League All-Star prior to being sent to Tennessee.
