On Friday, the Pirates edged the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field, but the real highlight of the game came when Diamondbacks catcher Wellington Castillo smacked the ball out of the park.

D-Backs' Welington Castillo tries Beef Wellington for the first time

Welington Castillo has been showing off his power at the plate in recent weeks, something that the Diamondbacks refer to as "Beef Mode."

Cubs catcher Wellington Castillo takes foul tip to the junk (GIF)

Your Opening Day was better than Cubs catcher Wellington Castillo’s.  He went 0 for 2 with two punchouts, caught ten innings and called the pitch that Neil Walker killed for the Pirates’ 1-0 walk-off win.  But all that paled in comparison to the foul tip he caught off the bat of Pirates third baseman Pedro Alvarez. The worst part – he didn’t catch it at all. via @samthomas86...
