RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Shortly after he was selected with the 48th overall pick in the 2014 draft, the 18-year-old Castellani bypassed a scholarship from Arizona State University to sign with the Rockies in June. At 6-foot-4 and 195 pounds, Castellani possesses ideal size and seemingly the imposing repertoire to match, as his fastball already sits in the low-to-mid-90s and figures to gain a few ticks as he fills out his frame. The right-hander wasn't a prolific strikeout artist in high school, nor in his 37 innings with the Rockiesí Northwest League affiliate, but itís his ability to generate groundballs that has the organization excited about his potential. That attribute is more vital to the Rockies than any other organization, given how Coors Field has proven historically ruinous for pitchers more reliant on flyballs to record outs. Castellani will likely be brought along slowly through the minors and figures to see time at Low-A Asheville this season.
