In our latest look at the Cubs top minor league prospects, shortstop Starlin Castro will also be playing in the AFL this fall.  Castro is only 19 years old and will be the Cubs youngest player in the AFL this season.  Castro played for the World Team in the All-Star Futures Game earlier this season.

Castro played 96 games at Class-A Daytona where he hit a promising .302.  After being promoted to Class Double-A Tennessee at the end of the year, Castro racked up a .288 batting average in 31 games.  It’s a good sign that his average stayed pretty steady as the season progressed and as he moved up to a higher level of competition.  The Cubs hope that Castro continues his development this fall in the AFL.  Could we see Castro at the major league level at Wrigley Field anytime soon?  Guess we will have to wait and see…
