Luis Castillo News
Seattle Mariners right-hander Luis Castillo will look to come up big for his team Monday when he gets the ball for a key start versus the Houston Astros. The Mariners enter Monday's contest just a half-game back of the Astros for the final Wild Card spot in the American League and are also three games back of the Texas Rangers for the top spot in the AL West. The club has the right man on the mound tonight as Castillo has worked to a 3.06 ERA and a 20.7% K-BB% across 31 starts on the season including a tidy 2.52 ERA across 96 1/3 innings at home where he will pitch tonight. The 30-year-old has allowed just four earned runs over his last three starts and 19 innings of work but will take on an Astros offense that ranks first in baseball with a .377 wOBA over the last 30 days.
Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Luis Castillo notched his 10th win of the season in Monday's 14-2 game against the White Sox. Castillo pitched seven innings, allowing one run on five hits and no walks with nine strikeouts. The 30-year-old has been a consistent higher-end fantasy starter all season long and now has a 10-7 record with a 3.15 ERA and a 10.01 K/9 rate. His next start will be another favorable matchup against the Royals.
Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Luis Castillo took a no-decision on Friday when he surrendered seven runs on 10 hits with six strikeouts and one walk over six innings in a 9-7 win over the Los Angeles Angels. Normally, you'd expect a starting pitcher to take the loss when they allow seven runs but the Mariners offense punched back in this one, giving their ace a no-decision for their effort. Castillo was victimized by the long ball in this contest, serving up a solo shot to Luis Rengifo on his first pitch of the game, a three-run homer to Mike Moustakas, and a two-run bomb to Mickey Moniak. He still managed to punch out six batters and only issued one walk but did give up a lot of hard contact. It happens. Castillo has been steady as a rock this season for Seattle so his overall stat line is still great, even with the poor effort on Friday. He'll carry a 3.21 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, and 155:34 K/BB ratio over 137 1/3 innings into his next turn against the Padres at home.
Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Luis Castillo enjoyed a strong bounce-back 2022 season with the Reds and Mariners. Castillo compiled a combined 8-6 record with a 2.99 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and 27.2% strikeout rate in 25 starts and 150 1/3 innings pitched. After an up-and-down 2021 campaign, Castillo posted a career-low ERA, while his strikeout rate and walk rate returned to his career averages. One potential downside to note is Castillo did give up harder contact, with an average exit velocity in the 35th percentile of baseball and a hard-hit rate in the 53rd. This came with a career-high 10.4-degree launch angle. The good news is that Castillo was able to escape one of baseball's least pitcher-friendly parks in the first half for one of the more pitcher-friendly parks in Seattle, where he will presumably pitch all of his home games in 2023. Castillo is currently being drafted as the 71st player overall, making him the 28th pitcher drafted. There are nine relief pitchers going ahead of Castillo, who now has six seasons of offering mid-rotation fantasy production with high-end upside. Given the caliber of relief pitchers being drafted after him and his high floor and ceiling, Castillo's ADP among other SP seems fair, while his overall ADP seems a bit low.
