It may be rainy in the Bronx, but nothing can put out the fire that is the New York Yankees’ second baseman, Starlin Castro. 

The New York Yankees acquired Starlin Castro from the Chicago Cubs with the intention of bringing in a consistent second baseman.

They got that and more. Now, they’re asking the question: “Can this guy get any hotter?”


On Tuesday, his first game as a member of the Yankees, Castro ripped an RBI double to score two runs off the reigning American League CY-Young award winner, Dallas Keuchel.

Last night, in his second game sporting navy blue pinstripes, Castro had an RBI single in the first inning, a three-run home run in the second inning and yet another RBI single in the seventh inning in New York’s monstrous 16-6 victory over the Astros.

Today, through four innings of his third day in the Bronx, he blasted his second home run of the season into the left field bleachers and extended his season batting average to .700.

So no, you cannot be hotter than Castro is right now.
