Daniel Alejandro Castro Cruz (born November 14, 1992) is a Mexican professional baseball infielder in the Colorado Rockies organization.
Castro signed with the Atlanta Braves in 2009 as a free agent. They allowed him to play for the Saraperos de Saltillo of the Mexican League to gain experience in 2012 and 2013. In August 2013, the Braves assigned Castro to the Lynchburg Hillcats of the Class A-Advanced Carolina League.
After Castro began the 2015 season with the Gwinnett Braves of the Class AAA International League, the Braves promoted him to the major leagues for the first time on June 17, 2015. He recorded his first Major league hit against the Boston Red Sox while pinch-hitting for relief pitcher Nick Masset. He was optioned to Gwinnett the next day. The Braves recalled Castro on July 25, after the Braves traded Juan Uribe and Kelly Johnson. Castro was optioned back to Gwinnett on August 8, along with Todd Cunningham, after the Braves acquired Nick Swisher and Michael Bourn from the Cleveland Indians.
Castro was recalled to the major leagues on April 13, 2016, after beginning the season at Gwinnett. He filled in at second base, third base, and shortstop when needed, and hit .182 in 42 games. After starting shortstop Erick Aybar was reactivated on June 12, Castro was optioned to the minors. He elected free agency after the season.
During the 2016 offseason, Castro signed a minor league contract with the Colorado Rockies.
