Picked this guy up last week and got three SB's out of him already. Anyone else like this guy?

I like him a lot, but he'll be back to the bench once Castillo comes back...

I like him too although more so in keeper leagues. He'll probably be sent back down in a couple of weeks when Cirillo and Castillo are both healthy but should steal a lot of bases in the meantime. If the Twins find themselves out of contention come August then Castillo should be dealt and Casilla will be back to stay. I don't think he's ready to hit major league pitching quite yet. As Alexei often says to the first baseman "Casilla later"!

Keep this kid's name in mind for 2008. If all goes as planned, he'll lead off for the Twiknies, hit .280+ and steal 50+.

That said, I figure they'll go with their veterans for this year while keeping Casilla in AAA for most of the year, giving him a cup of coffee in September and maybe some more playing time if people get hurt.

But don't count on him to produce for you this year.

Last I heard, Castillo's quad is tweaked a bit, but it's feeling better. I would give him a week tops. If it does give him further problems though, Casilla could be a great source of steals while not killing your average...
