The bad news keeps on coming: The Minnesota Twins will lose their catcher, Jason Castro, for the rest of the season due to a knee injury.

According to Chip Scoggins of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Twins' manager Paul Molitor made the announcement this Wednesday morning. Castro was placed in the 10-day disabled list earlier this season with a meniscus tear in his right knee.

 

Even though his injury was not that bad at the beginning, it developed into a serious one that ultimately cost Castro the remainder of the season. Now with the player out, the catcher duties will be split between  Mitch Garver and Bobby Wilson.

 

The Twins just signed Castro to a three-year contract worth $24.5 million in November 2016.
