MESA, Ariz. -- A day after turning 25, Chicago Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro will return to the field for a game against the Seattle Mariners Wednesday night. Castro was sidelined with a groin issue, causing him to miss the last few games. He says he’s 100 percent now. “It’s nothing,” Castro stated Wednesday afternoon. Castro, a three-time All-Star, returned to form at the plate last season but still has room to improve defensively.
