Ramon Castro was removed from today's game. It was revealed after the game that Castro was pulled due to tightness in his quad.

Acting manager Sandy Alomar Sr. stated that Castro was removed for precautionary purposes and should be available tomorrow as a pinch hitter or in a switch situation.

Despite the team down playing the extent of Castro's injury, as a fan you have to be concerned, because every time Castro is used as a regular, he gets hurt.
Whether you think Manuel is a genius or over-meddlesome, playing dangerous games, there's no denying since he pulled Castro for Santos in a ninth inning, bases loaded situation,Castro has been on fire.
Castro is currently hitting .292 with a Slg. pct of .479 in 16 games...
But the catcher said he was suffering from leg cramps, and that he'd be available for a double-switch Sunday."I can finish the game, but it's better to be careful," Castro said. Source: Newsday
