Casto to play some first

Acta said he would like to start getting Kory Casto more at-bats, and the most likely spot to find them would be at first base.

With Lastings Milledge back from a groin injury and Elijah Dukes expected to return from knee surgery soon, Casto has had few opportunities to crack the lineup as an outfielder.

Though Casto has limited experience at first base, Acta thinks it’s worth a shot to get him more playing time.

“I need to get Kory involved in getting some at-bats when I can because Kory is part of our future,” the manager said. “I’m going to work him in there a little bit.”
