San Diego Padres
2018 Fantasy Outlook
A throw-in in the 2014 Wil Myers trade, Castillo reached the Double-A level late last season as a 21-year-old and showed enough in 47 total appearances to warrant Rule 5 protection. Walks have held him back some (4.2 BB/9 at High-A last year), but an uptick in strikeouts over the past two years has helped him limit the damage from the free passes. The lefty was excellent against same-handed hitters last season with Lake Elsinore, holding them to a .197 average and 1.03 WHIP (23:6 K:BB). He touches the mid-90s with his fastball and has been mostly healthy since missing nearly all of 2014 with an arm injury. There are a trio of capable southpaws on the Padres' roster behind Brad Hand (Buddy Baumann, Jose Torres, Kyle McGrath), but with Castillo now on the 40-man roster, he will likely be among the top candidates to come up when bullpen reinforcements are needed.

Picks up win in relief
PSan Diego Padres
September 7, 2018
Castillo (2-2) was the winning pitcher after firing a scoreless inning with a strikeout against the Reds on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Starter Eric Lauer was only deployed for four innings, so the official scorer deemed Castillo's scoreless appearance worthy of the victory. Kirby Yates and Craig Stammen are firmly entrenched as the Padres' top late-inning options, but Castillo is making a strong case for a larger role next year after posting a 2.67 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 11.6 K.9 over 30.1 innings.
