Of course, emegency glove who can handle SS is a job description practically made for Paul Janish, so maybe he's all they need, but Rojas might fit that bill as well. Castro pobably never plays in the big leagues.
That is what most people believe. However, I would argue as I saw Castro make some amazing plays this past season. Castro finally hit last year and showed some amazing defense. Sending him to Pensacola in 2012 would just be a slap in the face and pointless. Rojas, while he has played good defense as well, was injured for much of 2011 and really didn't hit (as he's never had a good bat.) However, he has only played 75 games above High-A. I think he could go back and play all over the infield while Gregorious, Hernandez, and Greene start. He will, however, get a call up to Louisville if an injury presents itself.
