Castro (forearm) hopes to throw another bullpen session this weekend, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
The 26-year-old recently threw a bullpen session and was still experiencing some tightness, but it apparently isn't much of a concern as he could retake the mound this weekend.

Blake Bortles LAR QB
Packers' Blake Bortles: Joins Packers as workouts approach17m ago
Bortles agreed to a one-year contract with the Packers on Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Prior to Bortles' signing, Jordan Love was the only quarterback slated to attend the start of in-person workouts April 17, so the 29-year-old's presence fills a clear need for depth at the position. The ongoing saga of Aaron Rodgers' disgruntlement with management will ultimately determine Bortles' chances of making the Packers' Week 1 roster in a backup capacity.
Rashod Bateman BAL WR
Ravens' Rashod Bateman: Inks rookie contract27m ago
Bateman signed his four-year rookie contract with the Ravens on Wednesday.
Bateman's four-year, $12.6 million rookie deal includes a $6.5 million signing bonus. Having selected Bateman in the first round of April's draft, at No. 27 overall, the Ravens will have to make a decision about his fifth-year option come 2024. In the more immediate future, Bateman's draft capital and skill set should give him a near immediate starting opportunity alongside Marquise Brown and Sammy Watkins. The Minnesota standout's ability to create separation off the line of scrimmage should translate well to the pro level, giving Lamar Jackson some much-needed help in the intermediate passing game. That said, the infamously scarce passing volume of Baltimore's offense may cap Bateman's fantasy upside as a rookie.
Sam Jones IND OG
Sam Jones: Cut by Colts2h ago
