Luis Castillo clings to quality start in Mariners' victory

by Chris Schommer | Mariners Correspondent | Sun, May 19th 8:55am EDT

Luis Castillo navigated through a tightrope Saturday, yielding two earned runs on four hits and four walks while striking out two over six innings in the Mariners' 4-3 win over the Orioles.

Fantasy Impact:

Despite the less-than-dominant strikeout numbers and higher walk total in this outing, Castillo managed to limit the damage and keep his team in the game, which ultimately led to a Mariners' victory. His season ERA slightly increased to 3.28, and his WHIP now stands at 1.14, reflecting a solid, if not spectacular, performance thus far. Fantasy managers should note that while his K/9 rate has dipped slightly in this game compared to his season average, his ability to grind out quality starts keeps him as a viable option in most fantasy formats.
