  • Yankees' Miguel Castro: On paternity leave

    The Yankees placed Castro on paternity leave Friday.

    It's unclear exactly how many games Castro will be unavailable while on paternity leave. The righty has strung together four straight scoreless appearances with seven strikeouts over five innings in that span.

  • Yankees' Miguel Castro: Picks up win Thursday

    Castro (4-0) earned the win over Houston on Thursday, issuing one walk and striking out one batter in one inning.

    The right-hander's outing at first resembled mop-up duty with the Yankees trailing by three runs entering the ninth inning and facing the daunting task of trying to come back against Astros closer Ryan Pressly, but Castro's scoreless frame ended up being critical when New York stormed back for four runs and a walk-off win in the bottom of the frame. The veteran reliever has already set a single-season career high with four victories on the campaign.

  • Yankees' Miguel Castro: Picks up third victory

    Castro (3-0) earned the win over Minnesota on Thursday, pitching 1.1 scoreless innings during which he allowed one walk and struck out one batter.

    Yankees ace Gerrit Cole was uncharacteristically shelled for seven runs over 2.1 innings, forcing manager Aaron Boone to go to the bullpen early. Castro was New York's third pitcher, taking over with two outs in the bottom of the fifth. He struck out Gio Urshela to end the frame, then retired three of the four batters he faced in the sixth. Castro was credited with the win when New York put up a pair of runs to take the lead in top of the following inning. The right-hander has enjoyed a strong first season as a Yankee, supplementing his three wins with six holds and a 3.24 ERA.

  • Yankees' Miguel Castro: Notches hold Saturday

    Castro pitched two-thirds of an inning against the White Sox on Saturday, allowing one hit and striking out one batter to earn a hold.

    The righty reliever came on in the eighth inning and retired two batters around a Gavin Sheets single. He was replaced by Clay Holmes and credited with a hold after Holmes secured the four-out save. Castro has held the opponent scoreless in 14 of his 16 appearances this season and has compiled two wins, five holds and a 2.77 ERA across 13 innings.

  • Yankees' Miguel Castro: Earns win in relief

    Castro (2-0) was credited with the win Thursday against Baltimore, pitching one-third of an inning during which he allowed one hit and one walk while striking out one.

    Castro didn't pitch particularly well, as he gave up a double and a walk upon entering in the fifth inning before getting a strikeout to escape a bases-loaded jam. The reliever benefitted from fortunate circumstances, however, as the Yankees scored four runs in the bottom of the frame to put him in position for a win. Castro has two victories and three holds this season while posting a 2.45 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 6:6 K:BB across 7.1 innings.

  • Yankees' Miguel Castro: Moves to new borough

    The Yankees acquired Castro from the Mets on Sunday in exchange for Joely Rodriguez, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    The two New York teams are flipping relievers in the deal, with Castro providing the Yankees with another potential setup option while Zack Britton (elbow) remains on track to miss most, if not all, of the 2022 season. Castro likely won't rank high in the pecking order for saves with his new team, but he proved to be a serviceable arm for the Mets in 2021, finishing with a 3.45 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and nine holds over 70.1 innings.

  • Mets' Miguel Castro: Avoids arbitration

    Castro agreed to a one-year, $2.62 million contract with the Mets on Tuesday to avoid arbitration, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    Castro was a solid bullpen piece for the Mets in 2021 with a 3.45 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 77:43 K:BB across 70.1 innings. He also recorded nine holds and could see some high-leverage opportunities if he continues to pitch well this season.

  • Mets' Miguel Castro: Handed relief loss

    Castro (3-4) took the loss in Monday's 7-5 defeat at the hands of San Francisco, allowing two runs on two hits with two strikeouts in 1.1 innings.

    Castro relieved Rich Hill with two on and two out in the fourth and induced a Tommy La Stella lineout to escape the threat, but he surrendered a Kris Bryant two-run home run in the fifth to fall in line for the loss. The earned runs were the first in August so far for Castro, who now has 3.38 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 56:29 K:BB in 50.2 innings this season.

  • Mets' Miguel Castro: Activated Tuesday

    Castro was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list prior to Tuesday's game against the Marlins.

    He was on the IL due to contact tracing but tested negative, so Castro will be available after missing just one game. The veteran righty has a 3.97 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 11 strikeouts in 11.1 innings since the start of July.

  • Mets' Miguel Castro: Moves to COVID IL

    Castro (undisclosed) was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Monday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    The Mets apparently haven't reported a positive test for the virus, so it appears Castro is sidelined due to contact tracing. Assuming that remains the case, he should be able to rejoin the team relatively quickly if he continues to test negative.

  • Mets' Miguel Castro: Feeling better Wednesday

    Castro (neck) should be available out of the bullpen Wednesday against the Cubs, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

    The righty's neck stiffness has improved, according to manager Luis Rojas. Before suffering the injury and yielding two runs June 11, Castro had held opponents to just one run in his previous 8.2 innings as one of the Mets' most trusted late-inning relievers.

  • Mets' Miguel Castro: Exits with neck stiffness

    Castro left Friday's game against the Padres with a stiff neck, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    He gave up two runs on two hits and a walk while recording one out via a strikeout before exiting. It's unclear if he is day-to-day or if he could end up on the injured list.

  • Mets' Miguel Castro: Notches win

    Castro (2-1) pitched two scoreless innings and allowed just one walk, earning the win Wednesday versus Arizona.

    Castro kept Arizona off the board in the seventh and eighth innings. Pete Alonso put the Mets ahead in the top of the ninth, and Edwin Diaz converted the save. Castro owns a 2.66 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 31:12 K:BB across 23.2 innings, He's also collected four holds and blown a pair of save chances along the way, and he should continue to be in the mix for high-leverage work.

  • Mets' Miguel Castro: Nabs win Tuesday

    Castro (1-1) picked up the win Tuesday against the Rockies, striking out four over two scoreless innings while walking one.

    The right-hander was the first pitcher out of the bullpen after Jacob deGrom got the hook following five strong innings in his return to the rotation, and Castro was rewarded for his dominant effort when the Mets took the lead for good in the sixth. On the season, the 26-year-old has three holds in addition to his win with a 2.79 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 30:10 K:BB through 19.1 innings.

  • Mets' Miguel Castro: Works clean inning in bullpen game

    Castro started and struck out a batter in a perfect first inning Tuesday in the Mets' 4-3 win over Atlanta. He didn't factor into the decision.

    Rather than summoning a starter from Triple-A Syracuse to aid a banged-up rotation, the Mets opted for a bullpen game Tuesday. Castro was the first of seven pitchers to work Tuesday, getting through the opening inning unscathed before Tommy Hunter took over. Castro has posted a 3.14 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 21:8 K:BB across 14.1 innings over his 15 appearances on the season.

  • Mets' Miguel Castro: Charged with loss Friday

    Castro (0-1) allowed a run on one hit and two walks in one-third of an inning to take the loss Friday against Tampa Bay.

    Castro got Yandy Diaz to fly out to start the ninth inning, but he allowed the next three batters to get aboard. Reliever Aaron Loup entered the game and allowed a walkoff single to Brett Phillips, with the decisive run charged to Castro. Through 13.1 innings, Castro has a 3.38 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, 20:8 K:BB and two holds in 14 appearances. The hard-throwing righty has been reasonably effective in a versatile role, although he's not likely to challenge Edwin Diaz for saves.

  • Mets' Miguel Castro: No-decision Wednesday

    Castro tossed a scoreless inning in Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals, giving up one hit and one walk while fanning one. He didn't factor into the decision.

    As expected, Castro worked as the opener in the second half of the twin bill but only tossed 22 pitches (11 strikes) and didn't return for the second inning. Castro bounced back in this one, as he had allowed three runs (two earned) in his previous appearance. That was a small bump on the road for the right-hander, however, as the 26-year-old hasn't allowed runs in six of his last seven outings.

  • Mets' Miguel Castro: Gets ball for Game 2 of twin bill

    Castro is scheduled to start the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Cardinals, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    The Mets are still making Castro available out of the bullpen behind starter Marcus Stroman for the first game of the twin bill, suggesting that manager Luis Rojas is planning to use Castro as more of an opener for the nightcap than a traditional starter. Castro hasn't topped 31 pitches or recorded more than five outs in any of his 10 appearances this season, so he shouldn't be expected to work more than two innings in the second game before his night is over. Jordan Yamamoto and Sean Reid-Foley represent logical options to serve as a bulk reliever in Game 2, if the Mets decide to go that route.

  • Mets' Miguel Castro: Tuesday's game postponed

    Castro won't start Tuesday at St. Louis since the game was postponed due to inclement weather, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    The 26-year-old was set to start a bullpen game after Jacob deGrom (lat) was a late scratch, but the game ended up being postponed. Castro may not end up receiving a starting opportunity, as the Mets will have some extra time to square away their pitching staff. The game will be made up via a doubleheader Wednesday with Marcus Stroman starting the matinee, while the starter for the nightcap remains up in the air.
