  • Pirates' Diego Castillo: Rejoins Bucs

    The Pirates recalled Castillo from Triple-A Indianapolis on Monday. Castillo has been in the minors since the end of July, at which point he had slashed .201/.245/.368 through 257 big-league plate appearances in 2022. Those numbers, combined with his .689 OPS at Triple-A, don't inspire confidence in his rest-of-season outlook.

  • Pirates' Diego Castillo: Sent to minors

    Castillo was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Sunday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports. Castillo has been up in the majors all season but has seen limited playing time of late, and he'll head to the minors while in the midst of a 2-for-19 slump. Overall the 24-year-old has a .201/.245/.368 slash line with 10 home runs and 25 RBI in 84 games this year. Bryan Reynolds was reinstated from the paternity list in a corresponding move.

  • Pirates' Diego Castillo: Looks like reserve player

    Castillo will start in right field and bat fifth in Sunday's game against the Rockies. Though he's back in the lineup for the series finale while lefty Austin Gomber takes the bump for Colorado, the righty-hitting Castillo was on the bench in both of the previous two games, when the Rockies brought right-handers to the hill. As such, Castillo looks to be stuck in the short side of a platoon at the moment.

  • Pirates' Diego Castillo: Riding pine against righty

    Castillo is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Marlins. Castillo will take a seat against right-hander Pablo Lopez after he went 8-for-24 with two home runs, two walks, five RBI and two additional runs while starting each of the past seven games. With Bryan Reynolds (oblique) landing on the 10-day injured list Monday, the Pirates have a regular spot open in the outfield, and Castillo and Jake Marisnick look to be the primary candidates to play alongside Jack Suwinski and Ben Gamel. It'll be Marisnick who is rewarded with the start Wednesday after he hit home runs in both of his first two games since returning from the 60-day IL.

  • Pirates' Diego Castillo: Taking advantage of opportunity

    Castillo went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI on Monday against the Marlins. Castillo has started six consecutive games, though he has been aided by the fact that the Pirates have faced four lefties in that span. He's taken advantage of the opportunity, maintaining a .300 average with two homers, five RBI and three runs scored across his last 22 plate appearances. Despite his ability to play multiple positions, Castillo may find playing time harder to come by in the near future with Ben Gamel, Jake Marisnick and Kevin Newman all back in the mix.

  • Pirates' Diego Castillo: Playing regularly in utility role

    Castillo will start in right field and bat sixth in Sunday's game against the Brewers. Castillo doesn't possess a regular spot in the lineup at any position, but he'll nonetheless pick up his fifth straight start Sunday. The last three of his starts have come in right field, but the Pirates are expected to roll out an outfield of Ben Gamel, Bryan Reynolds and Jack Suwinski in most games. Castillo will get the nod in right field for the series finale while the slumping Suwinski takes a seat.

  • Pirates' Diego Castillo: Slugs ninth homer

    Castillo went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in the first game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Reds. The rookie gave the Pirates a 1-0 lead with a solo shot in the fifth inning off Mike Minor and added a single off Ian Gibaut in the eighth. The homer was Castillo's first blast since July 28 and his ninth of the season. However, he's still only slashing .198/.240/.371 through his first 70 games.

  • Pirates' Diego Castillo: Slugs eighth homer

    Castillo went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Tuesday against the Nationals. Castillo continued to display power, mashing his fifth home run in his last eight starts. He has eight home runs on the season but is still hitting just .195/.236/.357 across 199 plate appearances. The return of Josh VanMeter has crowded the team's infield, though Castillo drew the start in right field Tuesday at the expense of Bligh Madris.

  • Pirates' Diego Castillo: Sits after five straight starts

    Castillo is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Nationals. Castillo started each of the past five games and went 4-for-20 with three solo home runs over that stretch, but he benefited in part from lineup regulars Ke'Bryan Hayes and Oneil Cruz sitting out three and one of those contests, respectively. Both Hayes and Cruz are in the lineup Monday, and with Josh VanMeter (finger) also back from the 10-day injured list and Tucupita Marcano (illness) likely to come off the COVID-19-related IL by the end of the week, the Pirates suddenly have a logjam in the infield. The righty-hitting Castillo is thus likely to find himself as an odd man out for an everyday role, though he may still see steady starts against left-handed pitching.

  • Pirates' Diego Castillo: Power returning

    Castillo went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Saturday against the Rays. Castillo took Corey Kluber deep in the third inning to record his seventh home run of the season. Castillo did not homer and had only five extra-base hits in a 27-game span between May 8 and June 12, but he has connected for five home runs in his last 10 starts. However, he's still hitting just .171 in that span. For the season, Castillo has maintained a .197/.240/.348 line across 192 plate appearances.

  • Pirates' Diego Castillo: Slugs fifth homer

    Castillo went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run scored Wednesday against the Cubs. Castillo led off the second inning to tally his fifth home run of the season. After going 27 games without a long ball, Castillo has gone yard three times in his last seven starts. He had begun to lose playing time to Hoy Park -- both Park and Castillo were in the lineup with Ke'Bryan Hayes getting a day off Wednesday -- but Castillo could begin to earn back playing time given his strong stretch at the dish.

  • Pirates' Diego Castillo: Won't start Monday

    Castillo is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Cubs. Pittsburgh called up top prospect Oneil Cruz from Triple-A Indianapolis earlier Monday and will have him make his first start with the big club at shortstop, where he'll likely handle an everyday role moving forward. As a result, Castillo no longer has a path to steady playing time at the position, but he could get a look at second base while the likes of Josh VanMeter (finger) and Kevin Newman (groin) are on the shelf. However, it'll be Hoy Park who picks up the start at the keystone Monday after slugging a solo home run in Sunday's 4-3 win.

  • Pirates' Diego Castillo: Belts fourth homer

    Castillo went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run, a walk and a sacrifice fly in a 7-5 loss to the Giants on Saturday. The 24-year-old rookie had a nice four-RBI night at the plate, hitting a sacrifice fly off Alex Wood in the first, and then belting a three-run home run off him in the third. The second baseman had been ice cold in June, hitting only .075 over 40 at-bats. He did hit for a respectable average in the minors last year, and he is projected to hit about 30 to 40 points higher than his current .195 average on the season.

  • Pirates' Diego Castillo: Snaps homer drought

    Castillo went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Monday against the Cardinals. Castillo opened the scoring in the second inning with his third home run of the season. That ended a 27-game homerless drought, and he's struggled mightily in general during that stretch by hitting just .158 with four RBI and six runs scored. He could be a candidate to lose playing time when either Kevin Newman (groin) returns or Oneil Cruz is recalled, but Castillo remains the Pirates' primary shortstop for the time being.

  • Pirates' Diego Castillo: Picking up work at shortstop

    Castillo will start at shortstop and bat fifth in Tuesday's game against the Tigers. With Pittsburgh sending Rodolfo Castro back to Triple-A Indianapolis over the weekend, Castillo looks primed to get a look as the team's everyday shortstop. Though he enjoyed a hot start to the season, Castillo has been mired in a deep slump at the plate since the beginning of May, slashing .197/.256/.310 in 26 games dating back to the start of last month.

  • Pirates' Diego Castillo: Not in Saturday's lineup

    Castillo isn't starting Saturday against Arizona. Castillo started in the last five games but went just 1-for-16 with a run, three walks and seven strikeouts. Rodolfo Castro will shift to shortstop while Tucupita Marcano starts at second base.

  • Pirates' Diego Castillo: On bench Monday

    Castillo isn't starting Monday against the Cubs. Castillo has gone 1-for-5 with an RBI and a strikeout over his last two games, and he'll be out of the lineup for the third time in the last five matchups. Rodolfo Castro will shift to shortstop while Michael Chavis starts at second base.

  • Pirates' Diego Castillo: Not in Sunday's lineup

    Castillo is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds. Castillo is 1-for-12 with an RBI and a run over his past four games and will take a seat for Sunday's series finale. Rodolfo Castro and Josh VanMeter will start in the middle infield for Pittsburgh.

  • Pirates' Diego Castillo: Gets breather Thursday

    Castillo isn't starting Thursday against the Reds. Castillo started in the last seven games and hit .200 with a home run, a double, two runs and an RBI. Rodolfo Castro will start at shortstop while Josh VanMeter takes over at second base.

  • Pirates' Diego Castillo: Slugs second homer

    Castillo went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Reds. Castillo was in the lineup for both of Saturday's games, but his damage came in the first inning of the latter contest when he took Phillip Diehl yard for his second homer of the season. Castillo has earned a near everyday role in Pittsburgh, thanks in large part to his defensive versatility. He hasn't had an inspiring start to the season by maintaining a .254/.282/.358 line across 63 plate appearances, though he has only a 19.7 percent strikeout rate.
