What should we expect from Castillo for his first full year? Should we expect a Soto like (his first year) year, or should we just expect him to fix his form enough to make a little improvement from last year? I personally would be happy if he was able to receive and frame the ball better.

Sveum said he showed the most improvement of any player by the end of last year. I expect to see him perform better behind the plate. I dont' think we'll see the same offensive output we got from Soto's rookie year, but I think he will be decent offensively.
Please don't feed the psychos.

Cario has him with 364 PA 249/316/430
ZIPS 375 PA 240/309/307

If his D improves as much as last year it would be a good year.

He really needs to work on his receiving. I think his bat will be fine--probably something along the lines of a .725 OPS--hopefully Navarro can be a mentor to him when it comes to blocking/framing pitches.

I do like the idea that Navarro is the one the Cubs signed to mentor him. He understands the pressure that is involved with being a highly touted prospect for a team.
