Look I’m certainly not rooting for Luis Castillo to win the starting second base job but it’s not fair to kill the guy for not arriving early to camp considering his brother was having major surgery.
While it’s hard to verify whether surgery in another country actually happened and is a legit excuse, you gotta give him the benifit of the doubt.
Reporting dates are there for a reason, because you’re required to be in camp by that date - NOT before.
So as long as Castillo was on time we can’t have a problem with that.
I like that Collins thinks Luis is still spooked by the dropped pop-up. I really like that he spoke to the player about it and I love that he shared that with the press.
