Starlin Castro's mental lapse Monday when he didn't try to turn a double-play because he thought there were three outs wasn't his first miscue.

In fact, according to Baseball Info Solutions, Castro has had the most defensive misplays and errors of any middle infielder since he broke into the big leagues on May 7, 2010.

BIS puts such mistakes into a category entitled: Losing the double-play as the pivot man, which it defines as: Fielder juggles, drops or mishandles a throw from another fielder, or makes the play in an exceptionally slow manner, resulting in one out being recorded on a play which quick and smooth handling might have resulted in a double play.

According to ESPN Stats & Info: It's the eighth time Castro has done that in his MLB career. No other shortstop has more than five since Castro’s debut.
