Miguel Castro is expected to be placed on the 15-day injured list with a right shoulder injury.
Castro was sent for an MRI on his right shoulder and is looking likely to be placed on the 15-day injured list. Manager Aaron Boone said that Castro's shoulder 'has been barking a little bit' which prompted the team to sit him out since July 10. On the season Castro has five wins and eight holds with a 4.00 ERA and 1.41 WHIP over 32 appearances.
Miguel Castro allowed one walk and struck out four batters in two innings.
Castro has a 2.83 xFIP and a 3.00 K/BB ratio this season. He's been used as an opener and has appeared in 18 games this season with three holds and two blown saves.
Miguel Castro pitched a scoreless first inning allowing one walk and one hit while striking out one.
Castro has appeared in 11 games for the Mets this season; this was his first start. He's been quite effective in middle relief with a 1.71 xFIP and 3.27 ERA. But he's not in the mix for saves behind closer Edwin Diaz.
Reliever Miguel Castro has been traded from the Baltimore Orioles to the New York Mets, according to multiple reports. The Orioles are receiving Kevin Smith in return.
Castro is a big-armed right-handed reliever who still has two years of team control after this season, so this is a move for the Mets to shore up their bullpen for the rest of 2020 and beyond. In 16 appearances this season, he has a 4.02 ERA and 24 strikeouts over 15 2/3 innings.
Miguel Castro pitched the eighth inning of Tuesday's game against the Phillies, immediately allowing a Rhys Hoskins single and Bryce Harper homer. He got two swinging strikeouts, but then gave up a Jean Segura homer and a triple before exiting the game.
Castro did not have his best stuff on Tuesday, but even after this poor outing, he still has a 3.38 ERA and has 12 strikeouts in eight innings. In a holds league, he's a good target.
