Nationals' Starlin Castro: Plays in simulated game

Castro (hamstring) participated in a simulated game Monday, Maria Torres of The Athletic reports.Castro has been out since Tuesday with a strained left hamstring, but he got through Monday's game without issues. He's expected to be ready to play on Opening Day and will spend the day at third base, as Carter Kieboom's poor spring saw him fail to break camp with the team. Castro was strictly a second baseman last year but should add third-base eligibility early in the season in most formats, giving him the ability to fill in as both a middle and a corner infielder.

Nationals' Starlin Castro: Set to start at third base

Manager Dave Martinez announced Sunday that Castro (hamstring) will begin the season as the starter at third base, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.The 31-year-old was in the mix for the job at the hot corner throughout spring training, and the demotion of Carter Kieboom on Saturday clears the path for a starting role. Castro is recovering from a mild left hamstring strain, but the team expects him to be good to go by Opening Day on Thursday. He will participate in a simulated game Monday as he moves closer to full clearance.
