Luis Castillo picks up seventh victory Monday

Luis Castillo allowed two runs on two hits over six innings in the Reds' 3-2 win over the Astros on Monday. He walked six and struck out seven while improving to 7-1.

Fantasy Impact

The six walks are worrisome, but Castillo was otherwise stellar in a tough matchup. Walks have been a problem for him all season, as he's walked multiple batters in each of his last five starts. With a 4.52 BB/9, we cannot reasonably expect Castillo to maintain a sub-3 ERA. He's still a must-start pitcher, but these walks will come back to haunt him at some point. His next start comes Saturday vs. Milwaukee.

Luis Castillo allows one run in no-decision Tuesday

Luis Castillo allowed one run on four hits over six innings in the Reds' 2-1 extra innings loss to the Indians on Tuesday. He walked two and struck out six in the no-decision.

Fantasy Impact

Castillo keeps rolling, as this was his second straight start allowing just one run. He now has a 2.31 ERA and 29% K rate on the season, both elite marks. His ERA will surely regress, but Castillo is looking like a front line starter regardless. His next start comes Monday vs. Houston.

Luis Castillo struggles in no-decision Monday

Luis Castillo allowed (three runs) two earned on six hits over 5 1/3 innings in the Reds' 8-5 loss to the Pirates on Sunday. He walked four and struck out four in the no decision.

Fantasy Impact

Castillo was less than sharp in this one, and makes back-to-back questionable outings for him. He's still rocking a stellar 2.45 ERA, and the only major red flag is his 4.13 BB/9. Castillo should be fine if he can reign in the walks just a bit. His next start comes Sunday vs. Washington.

Luis Castillo can't make it through three Wednesday

Luis Castillo allowed four runs on five hits over 2.2 innings in the Reds' 11-9 loss to the Brewers on Wednesday. He walked three and struck out two in the no decision.

Fantasy Impact

Even the best pitchers churn out a stinker now and then, and that's exactly what happened to Castillo in this one. He had trouble commanding his pitches, and served up a pair of home runs early in the game. He'll get a chance to rebound Tuesday vs. Pittsburgh.

Luis Castillo picks up fifth win Thursday

Luis Castillo allowed two runs on two hits over 5.1 innings in the Reds' 4-2 win over the Cubs on Thursday. He walked one and struck out six while improving to 5-1.

Fantasy Impact

Castillo only went 76 pitches in this one, which is disappointing since he was pitching well prior to exiting. He now has a 1.90 ERA and 5-1 record on the year with an 11.09 K/9 in 61.2 innings. He seems to have made the leap towards acehood this season, and should finish as a top-20 pitcher. His next start comes Wednesday at Milwaukee.
