STANFORD, Calif. -- Jason Castro can now add Stanford graduate to his list of accomplishments that includes an MLB All-Star Game selection. 

The Astros' catcher completed his course requirements this fall and was recently featured by MLB.com for his return to The Farm. 

Castro's quotes to MLB.com:

"That was my intention my whole time, to graduate. I was so close when I was [drafted]. It wasn't a question of getting it. It was question of when."

"A lot of Stanford guys have graduated regardless of their playing careers. Most guys after their junior year have just a quarter left. They stress getting ahead of the curve so you don't have a full year or more after you leave to try to make up."

"A couple classes had decent amount of freshmen, which was funny. All the kids looked a lot younger than I felt when I was there. It was pretty startling."

"We can't play baseball as long as we'd like. At some point, I'll probably put [the degree] to use. Who knows what, but just having it and knowing it's something done and out of the way, when baseball is over, it's nice."
