      Rockies' Simon Castro: Optioned to Triple-A

      Castro was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Thursday, Nick Groke of The Denver Post reports. The Rockies trimmed their roster down to exactly 40 men Thursday with the move to option Castro down to Triple-A. Castro struck out four batters while allowing zero runs across 5.1 innings of work this spring. He figures to provide depth out of the bullpen at Albuquerque for most of the season.

Castro pitched well with Triple-A Albuquerque last season, but he failed to perform well once he received a promotion to the majors.
