Marlins’ Starlin Castro Requests Trade

Yahoo Sports

It didn’t take long for Miami Marlins infielder Starlin Castro to request a trade from the team, as the veteran 2nd baseman who was acquired in the December deal that sent slugger Giancarlo Stanton to the New York Yankees has done just that, according to MLB Network insider Ken Rosenthal.

According to the report, Castro “does not want to be a part of another rebuilding process” as he was when he was with the Chicago Cubs from 2010-15.

While it was initially expected that Miami would move Castro,’s Joe Frisaro reported last week that the Marlins might ultimately keep him.

Castro is to make nearly $11 million in 2018 and almost $12 million in 2019 and comes with a $16 million club option for 2020.
