About Starlin Castro

Starlin DeJesus Castro (born March 24, 1990) is a Major League Baseball shortstop for the Chicago Cubs. He is a two-time Major League Baseball All-Star who holds the major league record for runs batted in in a Major League debut and the youngest player to lead the National League in hits. In 2009, Castro was named to the Florida State League All-Star team, and won MVP honors, going 4-for-4 with an inside-the-park home run in the game. He was also named All-Star Futures Game for the World Team. After the season, Castro was named the best prospect in Chicago's organization by Baseball America. Castro was called up to the majors for the first time on May 7, 2010 from the Tennessee Smokies, the Cubs double A affiliate. He became the first major league player born in the 1990s. In his first major league at bat he hit a three-run home run off of Homer Bailey of the Cincinnati Reds. He became the sixth player in Cubs history and 106th player overall to do so.
