Juan Castro (born Juan Gabriel Castro in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico on June 20, 1972) is a Major League Baseball infielder. He is currently the starting shortstop for the Minnesota Twins. Castro bats right-handed, throws right-handed, and wears number 17.

Castro is a 1990 graduate of CBTIS 43 High School in Los Mochis. He has three children with his wife Yadira (née Delgado).

Castro made his Major League debut with the Los Angeles Dodgers on September 2, 1995. Playing for the Dodgers was especially meaningful for Castro, as he idolized fellow Mexican and former Dodgers pitching ace Fernando Valenzuela as a child. Castro played for the Dodgers through the 1999 season, and for the Cincinnati Reds from 2000 to 2004.

In 2005 Castro was signed by the Minnesota Twins as a backup to rookie shortstop Jason Bartlett. Bartlett showed promise early in the season, but began to slump at the plate and was sent down to the minor leagues. Relishing his new starting job, Castro has become a fan favorite for his spectacular defensive plays.
