Castro sits again after collision at home plate
MILWAUKEE -- Nursing a sore neck after a violent collision with the Brewers' Mat Gamel on Monday night, catcher Jason Castro was out of the starting lineup on Wednesday for the second day in a row.

"I'm feeling better today," Castro said. "It's still sore. I'm just going to take advantage of the day off [on Thursday] and kind of maximize my amount of rest, that way I'll be ready to go and 100 percent when we start up in Cincinnati [on Friday]."

Castro remained in the game after Gamel bowled him over. Castro fell backward and hit the back of his head on the dirt but was allowed to remain in the game after passing all of the neurological tests.

Manager Brad Mills said that although Castro was available to play, "[because of] the off-day, both he and the trainers came in and talked to me, and they felt they could give him three full days. If something happens, he's able to play today. His neck is still pretty stiff."
