New York Yankees’ second baseman Starlin Castro came up big in his first at bat sporting Yankee pinstripes.
Let’s just say it’s been a damn good start for the newest Yankee.
With two on and one out in the bottom of the second inning of Opening Day, Castro ripped a Dallas Keuchel fastball down the left field line and into the corner.
Welcome to the Bronx, Starlin! A huge 2-run double gives the #Yankees a 2-0 lead in the 2nd!

Against Keuchel in 2015, Yankee hitters struck out 28 times and did not score a single run in three games.
Castro had a .367/.373/.571 slash line with two home runs in Spring Training, and it looks like he’s carrying that over into the regular season.
