SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) -- Chicago White Sox catcher Ramon Castro left the team's split-squad game against the Texas Rangers on Sunday in the top of the second inning with an apparent leg injury.
Castro pulled up between first and second after looping a double down the left-field line and walked into second base. He jogged slowly to third on Jason Nix's subsequent single before he was replaced by a pinch-runner.
Castro, the backup to starter A.J. Pierzinski, hit .184 in 31 games with the White Sox after he was acquired from the New York Mets last July for pitcher Lance Broadway. He has played parts of 11 seasons in the majors, six with Florida and four-plus with the Mets before the trade.
