If there is one position the Chicago Cubs seemingly are always trying to find a long-term starter for it's arguably at catcher. With Geovany Soto long gone, this year they’ll turn to 25-year-old Welington Castillo.

Cubs manager Dale Sveum made it clear on Monday the job is Castillo’s -- as long as he performs.

“You’d like to see Welington start out his first year playing every day, catch right around 100 to 110 games,” Sveum said. “But that’s subject to change depending on his own production and how things are going.”

Sveum made those comments before Monday’s Cactus League contest between the Cubs and Dodgers, in which Castillo promptly homered in his first at-bat.

“It helps to come to spring training and know you have a job, but at the same time I don’t feel comfortable, just have to keep working hard and feel like I don’t have anything,” Castillo said afterwards.
