(WSCR) Looking up and down the Cubs current Major League roster, not many players stick out as someone you’d want to build a team around.

Except, of course, Starlin Castro.

The 22-year-old All Star, currently making $576,000, could soon be in line for a long-term, mega contract, but his agent said negotiations won’t take place during the season.

“Maybe after the season, but I’m not really interested during the season to talk about it,” agent Paul Kinzer told the Tribune on Wednesday. “I don’t want any distractions.”

Though Castro won’t be a free agent until 2017, several other teams have been buying out the potential arbitration years of their young stars.

Through the first 30 games of this season. Castro is hitting .347 with 42 hits, a homer and 19 RBIs. Last season, Castro paced the National League with 207 hits.
