The Dodgers Just Can't Quit Juan Castro

Juan Castro, who put up career highs of a .277 batting average and .311 on-base percentage off the Dodger bench last season, is one step closer to his third stint in Los Angeles, per Ed Price of AOL Fanhouse:

Infielder Juan Castro, released by #Phillies, signs minor-league deal with #Dodgers.

Castro was signed by the Dodgers as an amateur free agent in 1991, and played the first five seasons of his career (1995-1999) in Los Angeles. He was released by the Phillies earlier this season after hitting .198 with a .237 on-base percentage and .238 slugging percentage in 54 games.

Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times added to the story:

Castro is working out at the Dodgers' spring training complex and will join triple-A Albuquerque for their next homestand.

The next homestand for the Isotopes begins on Wednesday, August 4.
