At 26 years old, Jason Castro is just starting to tap into his potential as one of the players around whom the Houston Astros are presumably building their franchise after ripping things down in 2013.

In 120 games last season, Castro batted .276/.350/.485 with 18 home runs and 56 RBI. That kind of production is golden from a catcher, as Castro was good for 4.3 fWAR.

Unfortunately for the Astros and their precise building plan, they have to account for each and every dollar when a player is potentially due for a big payday. As he is eligible for arbitration later this month, the team might have to already consider a trade for Castro.
