Extra bases

• Castro would love to have the same type of career as Jeter.

"I've heard that from some guys," Jeter said Tuesday. "A lot of the shortstops come up who wore No. 2, I've met them and they said they've been fans. ... I haven't seen Castro play a lot. I don't watch the National League teams much. But the times that I have, I've seen he has a lot of talent. He's played well already up to this point. I think he's only going to get better. I wish him all the luck."

• On May 6, Cubs Charities teamed up with Advocate Health Care to "PINK OUT" the Budweiser Bleachers for the Cubs' game against the White Sox. Each fan sitting in the bleachers received a pink "Save 2nd Base" T-shirt in honor of moms and women who are breast cancer survivors. It was a visual reminder to focus on breast health and prevention through mammograms.

Proceeds from the 50/50 raffle and donations for pink hats that day raised $7,000, which will be used to fund mammograms for uninsured and under-insured women through Advocate Charitable Foundation.

Team wives such as Lindsay Barney, Erika Jackson, Kate Schierholtz, Brittany Wood and others participated by passing out the shirts at the bleacher entrance.

• Justin Ruggiano, sidelined with a left hamstring strain, began his rehab on Monday with Triple-A Iowa and went 2-for-3. Renteria said there was not a prescribed number of at-bats that Ruggiano needs before he is activated. The outfielder is responding well to drills, Renteria said.
