According to White Sox manager Rick Renteria, Castillo suffered the injury when his spike stuck in the ground while throwing out C.J. Cron stealing second for the second out in the top of the sixth. Omar Narvaez pinch-hit for Castillo and drew a walk in the bottom half of the frame, with Narvaez eventually lining out to right as the winning run at the plate in the ninth to end the White Sox fifth straight setback at home and overall.

"He kind of tweaked his knee, and he's day to day right now," Renteria said. "We'll see how he feels tomorrow. I don't anticipate honestly that it's anything of concern, long-term concern.

"If I have to give a day tomorrow, I'll give him a day tomorrow. But he should be fine."
