Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro wasn’t known for his fielding skills, but he flashed his glove a couple times against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday.

In the bottom of the 4th inning, after an Andrew McCutchen single, former Cubs third baseman Aramis Ramirez hit a ground ball to Castro. The Cubs shortstop backhanded the ball and threw it to Addison Russell who turned the double play.
