The Chicago Cubs’ signing of free agent backstop David Ross to a two-year, $5 million deal, coupled with the trade for former Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero, has led many to speculate that the team could be ready to deal Welington Castillo, who has served as the team’s primary backstop for the last two seasons.

With the offseason already notably busier than in years past for several teams around the league, the list of potential destinations for Castilo is longer than it may have been any other year. With that in mind, we’re going to take a look at potential landing spots for the 27-year old who batted .237/.296/.389 last season, while also setting career-highs in home runs (13) and RBIs (46).

Here are five potential destinations for Castillo – with a little bit of information on where each club currently sits.
