Player Notes
Starlin Castro knocked in two runs against the Brewers on Friday.

Advice: Castro had an RBI single in the second inning before hitting into a fielder's choice in the fourth inning to drive in another run. The 25-year-old was in the middle of trade discussions this week, but the Cubs are surely hoping he'll breathe a bit easier now that the deadline has passed. He owns a disappointing .237/.271/.304 batting line on the year.

ESPN's Jayson Stark reports that the Cubs are "aggressively trying to include Starlin Castro in any deal."

Advice: It's notable that Addison Russell started at shortstop on Wednesday. Cubs manager Joe Maddon said earlier this week that Castro would not be traded, but that's not a promise he can keep. The 25-year-old is batting just .237/.271/.305 in 406 plate appearances this season and his defense at shortstop has deteriorated. There's been talk of interest from the Padres.

Starlin Castro is not in the Cubs' lineup Wednesday.

Advice: It's a day off for the struggling Castro. Addison Russell has slid over to handle shortstop, while Jonathan Herrera is getting a start at second base.

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Padres have discussed Starlin Castro with the Cubs.

Advice: Morosi adds that the Cubs have inquired on the Padres' starters and he opines that a Castro-for-James Shields swap might make some sense. Castro has been a colossal disappointment with the Cubs this season, hitting just .233/.268/.302 with five homers. He's under contract through 2019 and the Cubs would probably love to use him as a trade chip this week to get pitching help.
