Castellani was returned to Triple-A Albuquerque following Tuesday's doubleheader against the Giants. Castellani served as the 27th man in Tuesday's twin bill and made his season debut as the starter in the nightcap. The right-hander allowed two runs on five hits and four walks while striking out two in 3.1 innings. He didn't factor into the decision and will now head back to Triple-A Albuquerque with the minor-league season is underway.
Castellani did not factor into the decision after surrendering two runs on five hits and four walks while striking out two across 3.1 innings in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Giants. All of Castellani's damage came on a two-run homer by Brandon Belt in the first inning. Otherwise, it was a short outing for the 25-year-old, who was recalled from Colorado's alternate training site ahead of Tuesday's twin bill as the team's 27th player. Castellani is expected to report back to Triple-A Albuquerque following the doubleheader.
The Rockies recalled Castellani from their alternate training site ahead of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Giants. He'll be appointed as the 27th man for the twin bill and is scheduled to start the second game Tuesday. Castellani will likely report to Triple-A Albuquerque following the doubleheader.
Manager Bud Black said that Castellani will be called up from Triple-A Albuquerque to start the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Giants, Jenny Cavnar of AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain reports. German Marquez is thus in line to start the first game of the day after he had his scheduled start Monday postponed due to inclement weather in Colorado. Castellani will likely be designated as the Rockies' 27th man for the twin bill, so he'll presumably head back to Albuquerque following the spot start. The 25-year-old right-hander made 10 appearances (nine starts) for Colorado as a rookie in 2020, posting a 5.82 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 25:26 K:BB in 43.1 innings.
Castellani allowed three runs on no hits and three walks while failing to record an out in Monday's spring loss to the Reds. He didn't factor into the decision. Castellani struggled mightily with control during his second Cactus League appearance Monday. He only threw one strike across his 17 pitches and let three runs come across while issuing three walks and hitting one batter during the relief outing. The right-hander has now given up 10 runs (seven earned) on two hits and five walks while failing to record a strikeout across two innings to begin spring training.
