Luis Castillo whiffs seven in no-decision Tuesday

Luis Castillo allowed four runs on seven hits -- including two home runs -- over five innings in a no-decision against the Giants on Tuesday. He struck out seven and walked none.

Fantasy Impact

Despite the semi-disappointing final line, Castillo's seven strikeouts and zero walks are encouraging. After a rocky first inning in which he allowed two homers, Castillo settled in well. He's seemingly turned the page on his horrific Opening Day start. Over his past two starts, he has a 12:1 K:BB. Castillo's next start is currently scheduled to come Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

Luis Castillo gets back on track with stellar start Wednesday

Luis Castillo (1-1) earned the win Wednesday against the Pirates. He threw seven scoreless innings while allowing four hits and one walk. He struck out five.

Fantasy Impact

Castillo rebounded beautifully after a rough first outing last week. He was in complete control and his velocity was measurably higher in this outing. He lowered his season ERA to 6.97 and WHIP to 1.45. Hopefully, fantasy managers did not panic after his outing last week. He lines up to take on Giants early next week.

Luis Castillo charged with eight earned runs Thursday

Luis Castillo (0-1) allowed 10 runs (8 earned) on eight hits and two walks over 3.1 innings in a loss to the Cardinals on Thursday. He did not record a strikeout.

Fantasy Impact

Castillo struggled mightily in this one, as he simply did not have it on a cold Opening Day in Cincinnati. His defense let him down as well; a Eugenio Suarez error in the second yielded two runs. Castillo will look to get back on track in his next start against the Pirates.

Luis Castillo throws live BP for first time this spring

Reds RHP Luis Castillo threw live batting practice on Monday for the first time this spring.

Fantasy Impact

Castillo is behind other pitchers in camp due to travel issues getting back to the United States from the Dominican Republic. However, he's slated to make his Cactus League debut on Friday. Castillo still has time to be ready for Opening Day.

Luis Castillo agrees to one-year, $4.2 million deal with the Reds

Luis Castillo agreed to a one-year, $4.2 million deal with the Reds to avoid arbitration.

Fantasy Impact

While this looks like a relative bargain for Castillo, considering his career trajectory, this is actually a decent salary bump for him. He was rumored to be in some trade talks earlier this offseason but it would be a surprise if Cincinnati moved him at this point.
