Athletics' Simon Castro: Joins big club in wake of trades
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Athletics selected Castro's contract from Triple-A Nashville on Sunday.

Castro will join the Athletics for what's likely a temporary basis to provide an extra arm out of the bullpen after relievers Sean Doolittle and Ryan Madson were traded to the Nationals on Sunday. The Athletics did take back another bullpen arm in Blake Treinen back in the deal, so once Treinen joins the big club, Castro could be shipped back to Triple-A. Over 38 innings with Nashville this season, the 29-year-old has supplied a 3.32 ERA to go with an eye-popping 63 strikeouts.

Athletics' Simon Castro: Making impression with energy, performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro, a hard-throwing non-roster invitee, has made an impression with his aggressiveness and performance over his first two spring appearances, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports. "He's pretty passionate about what he does, and when he came to the mound, he was pretty vocal," A's manager Bob Melvin said. "He was telling the guys, 'Let's go! Right now, let's go!' I haven't heard that too many times out of pitchers, let alone in Spring Training, so he impressed me with his eagerness to pitch and certainly was not scared and got the outs we needed.

The 28-year-old Dominican has been hard to miss when out on the mound, both for his demeanor and ability to successfully navigate difficult situations. Castro has a 1-0 record on the strength of a scoreless inning across two appearances, earning the win by getting two outs after inheriting a man on third in Monday's victory over the Giants. He also limited further damage in the second inning of the Cactus League opener by coming on in relief of Jesse Hahn after the latter had already given up three runs in the frame. The 6-foot-5 Castro has limited big league experience -- having posted a 4.76 ERA and 1.41 WHIP over 17 innings with the White Sox and Rockies in the 2013 and 2015 seasons -- but has built up a solid minor league resume following a transition to reliever after 2014 Tommy John surgery. Castro compiled an impressive 132 strikeouts over 110.1 innings at Triple-A Albuquerque during the 2015-16 campaigns and is arguably making the biggest impact of the 14 non-roster pitches in Oakland camp this spring.

Athletics' Simon Castro: Signs minor league deal with Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro signed a minor league contract with Oakland on Thursday that includes an invite to spring training, CSN Bay Area reports.

Castro put together a solid showing at Triple-A Albuquerque in 2016, where he was one of the club's most-used relievers, as he threw for a 3.38 ERA and 1.20 WHIP over 53.1 innings (50 games). He also posted a 25.8 percent K-rate, which is well above his career average of 20 percent, and managed to walk batters at a career-low rate of 5.3 percent.
