MESA, Ariz. -- Welington Castillo will be behind the plate Thursday in Scottsdale, Ariz., in one of the Cubs' split-squad games. Where he'll be when the season opens is to be determined.
After two seasons as the starting catcher, Castillo, 27, finds himself No. 3 on the depth chart behind Miguel Montero, 31, and David Ross, 37. Manager Joe Maddon says the Cubs can carry three catchers, and Castillo gives them insurance.
