    • Athletics' Simon Castro: Re-ups with A's
      By RotoWire Staff

      Castro agreed to a minor-league deal with the Athletics on Thursday that includes an invitation to spring training, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Simon signed a minor-league deal with the A's last offseason and split his time between Triple-A Nashville and the majors. He was effective in the minors (3.32 ERA over 38 innings) but less so in the bigs (4.38 ERA over 37 innings). He could work his way onto the Opening Day roster with a strong spring training performance.

    • Castro was outrighted to Triple-A Nashville on Monday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Castro saw plenty of time in the majors during the 2017 campaign. He pitched 37 innings over 26 games and finished the year with a 4.38 ERA and 1.24 WHIP. His control was lackluster, as he owned a 35:14 K:BB and gave up home runs at a lofty 1.7 HR/9 clip. Moving forward, Castro's fantasy value is fairly limited, as his performance to this point hasn't warranted use in high-leverage situations.

    • Castro allowed two earned runs on three hits over two-thirds of an inning in Monday's 8-3 win over the Tigers. Castro was the first in a parade of relievers called upon following emergency starter Raul Alcantara's exit after 3.2 innings. The hard-throwing right-hander disposed of James McCann to finish out the fourth, but ran into trouble in the fifth by allowing RBI doubles to JaCoby Jones and Ian Kinsler. The results were par for the course for Castro, who's now surrendered a pair of earned runs in each of his last three appearances. Castro's rough stretch has bumped up his ERA from 2.88 to 4.55, even as he's generated an impressive nine strikeouts across 8.1 innings over that span.

    • Castro fired two scoreless innings in Tuesday's 8-2 loss to the Angels, allowing one hit and three walks. He struck out two. The hard-throwing right-hander's final line represented a much-needed bounce-back from the four earned runs he'd surrendered over his previous trio of appearances. Castro did issue multiple free passes for the first time this season, but he also recorded multiple whiffs for the third straight outing. Despite his recent stumbles, his solid 3.09 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 21 strikeouts over 23.1 innings are helping to keep him relevant in deeper formats.

    • Castro (1-2) gave up a game-winning solo home run for his only hit and earned run over two-plus innings in Wednesday's 8-7 extra-inning loss to the Orioles. He also issued a walk and recorded three strikeouts. Castro otherwise turned in a dominant 33-pitch appearance, but his one mistake against Manny Machado cost the Athletics the game. The 29-year-old right-hander has been scored upon in three straight appearances, allowing a total of four earned runs over the five innings encompassing that stretch. Although his ERA (3.43) and WHIP (0.95) remain solid, thanks to his performances earlier in the season, he's trending in the wrong direction as of late.
