$Signed a contract with the Giants in July of 2015.
Takes loss Saturday
PSan Francisco Giants
October 3, 2021
Castro (1-1) allowed an unearned run on one walk and struck out one in two-thirds of an inning, taking the extra-inning loss Saturday versus San Diego.
ANALYSIS
This was the first run Castro has allowed in the majors, although it was surrendered when Jake Cronenworth doubled home the initial runner in the 10th inning off Jarlin Garcia. Castro's spotless ERA remains intact, and he has a 1.11 WHIP with a 12:2 K:BB across 12.2 innings so far. While he hasn't recorded a save or a hold, the 22-year-old has found modest success in his first taste of big-league action.
