Yeah, I was hoping that they would kick Castillo to the curb, and have a 3-man rotation at C and DH between McCann, Collins and Mercedes. Maybe they like the way Castillo has been working with some of the pitchers like Lopez (his last outing notwithstanding). In the end Lopez's development is more important than getting Mercedes a few September ABs, so I get it. Mercedes would have also required opening up a 40-man spot, but that could have been done by cutting someone like Minaya who they didn't even bother calling up anyway.
