2010 Chachi #12 Juan Castro

With Jimmy Rollins DL-bound due to a strained right calf, utility infielder Juan Castro suddenly finds himself the starting shortstop on the Phillies. I honestly had no idea how long Castro has been around until I created the back of his 2010 Chachi card, #12 in the set.

Phillies debut: April 12, 2010
Major League debut: September 2, 1995
How acquired: Signed as a free agent formerly with the Los Angeles Dodgers, December 17, 2009
Others wearing #7 in the 2000s: Terry Francona (manager) 2000, Richie Hebner (coach) 2001, John Mabry 2002, Jeremy Giambi 2002, Gary Varsho (coach) 2003-2004, Kenny Lofton 2005, Marc Bombard (coach) 2006, Steve Smith (coach) 2007, Pedro Feliz 2008-2009
