I can only assume Ozzie Guillen recommended him before leaving for Miami.

The White Sox on Tuesday acquired infielder Jose Castro from the Reds for a player to be named and assigned him to Triple-A Charlotte.

Castro, a 25-year-old second baseman and shortstop, hit .306/.343/.354 with no homers and no steals in 291 at-bats between Double-A Carolina and Triple-A Louisville last year. The White Sox are currently going with a light-hitting 23-year-old in Eduardo Escobar as their utilityman and needed some extra infield depth. Castro fits the bill, but it’s doubtful he’ll have a significant major league career.

    NOW I understand how Kenny Williams has kept his job this whole time: he’s a comedic genius.

    Its funny cause they also got Castro for Carlos Quentin in the trade with the Padres

    I love Castro – how can you not admire him for his ability to stay in the minor leagues with a slash line like that?
