offensively and racks up those RBIs. Castro ended the month of April with .325/.349/.410 line as well as two home runs, 12 RBIs, and two stolen bases in 83 at-bats.

He may have struggled to get his first home run, but now he’s hit three in four days. 3 home runs, 18 RBIs, and an on-base plus slugging percentage of .810. There’s no denying Kris Bryant is fun to watch even if you aren’t a Cubs fan.
