Starlin Castro … A Future Star?

The CCO will have more in the coming days about Cubs’ prospect Starlin Castro. He is getting rave reviews in the Arizona Fall League after a very good 2009 season. Keith Law from had this to say about Starlin Castro:

Starlin Castro is a future star. He won’t turn 20 until March but was one of the best and most impressive hitters I saw in Arizona.” Law went on to say, “At shortstop, he has good lateral range, especially to his right, and a 65-70 arm on the 20-80 scale.

Keith Law mentioned the comparisons that have been made to Alfonso Soriano but Law quickly stated, “I heard a few comparisons of Castro to Alfonso Soriano, and although there’s some physical resemblance, Soriano has a longer swing and always has been a bit of a hacker, while Castro has better bat control and ability to adjust to changing speeds.
