The Miami Marlins have acquired reliever Jose Castillo from the San Diego Padres in exchange for cash considerations.
Castillo has made 22 of his 23 appearances this season at Triple-A where he has pitched to an ugly 9.82 ERA across 18 1/3 innings of work. However, his brief big-league resume is quite solid as he sports a 4.24 ERA but also a 2.96 FIP and 2.87 SIERA while punching out hitters at a 33.3% clip across 40 1/3 innings of work since debuting in 2018.
The Padres recalled Jose Castillo from Triple-A El Paso.
Castillo will provide the Padres with some extra depth in the bullpen. He has yet to make an appearance at the MLB level this season.
Padres manager Jayce Tingler says Jose Castillo (lat) could return before the end of the season.
Castillo suffered a lat strain during summer camp and has been on the injured list ever since. The lefty reliever hasn't thrown off a mound yet so he still has a long way to go.
Jose Castillo exited Tuesday's intrasquad game with what appeared to be a lat strain.
Castillo is set to undergo further testing in the coming days, so more details on the extent of his injury should be available soon.
Jose Castillo allowed one in 2/3 of an inning taking the loss Wednesday against the A's. He gave up one walk and struck out one. He raised his season ERA to 2.84.
Castillo allowed a walk to start the bottom of the eighth and then was immediately pulled. That walk became the go ahead run for the A's. Castillo's loss was not entirely his fault but he will be the pitcher of record. His debut season as a whole has been impressive with a 0.79 WHIP and a 18/4 SO/BB rate in 12 2/3 innings.
