Line of the Day: April 16th, 2011

SS Starlin Castro of the Chicago Cubs went 4-for-5 with a double, home run, three RBI and a run scored in an 8-3 win over the Colorado Rockies. It was his first home run of the season and increased his batting average to .397.

Line: 5 AB, 1 R, 4 H, 3 RBI; 2B, HR

Fantasy Perspective: Castro is currently the 3rd-ranked shortstop on ESPN with a 5x5 line of .397/12/1/6/2. He was the 11th shortstop drafted with an ADP of 150.6, compared to Derek Jeter being the 4th-drafted shortstop with an ADP of 56 and a 5x5 line of .240/8/0/3/0. Castro is the Cubs new leadoff hitter and in six games this season, he's batting .536 (15/28).
