RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2012

Castro started off strong in the Padres system, but has found success difficult to achieve above the Double-A level. In 2010 he saw his K/BB ratio drop from 2.97 to 1.00 with the move and then from 4.56 to 1.17 in 2011. Consistent delivery and command seem to be an issue for him and while his raw skills are strong, he won't be a factor in the majors unless he can learn to dominate Triple-A hitting. While a potential promotion hinges on his growth in the minors, perhaps his path to the majors becomes a bit easier since being acquired by the White Sox in the Carlos Quentin deal this offseason. Chicago's farm system is pretty barren and a strong showing in Triple-A could accelerate Castro's advancement.

2011

When you talk about the top pitching prospects in the Padres' system, you talk about Castro. At 6-foot-5 and 211 pounds, he possesses a mid-90s fastball, slider, and changeup. At Double-A San Antonio he had a 2.92 ERA with a 2.97 K/BB ratio and .226 batting average against in 129.2 innings. He got a taste of Triple-A action late in the season and got hit around. He should start the 2011 season back at Triple-A Portland, where he'll work on his off-speed pitches and wait for a midseason callup. Those in keeper leagues should take notice of Castro's potential, as a 2011 debut is possible.

2010

It took four seasons for this young Dominican righty to be turned loose on a full-season league. When he was, he showed that the Padres' careful handling of him had paid off, posting the best rates of his career. At 22, he could make a real move upward next season. Get him before anyone notices, because he's a rare prospect in this system with star upside.
