  • Mariners' Diego Castillo: Earns save against Mets

    Castillo allowed no hits and a walk while striking out two in two-thirds of a scoreless inning to earn the save in Sunday's win over the Mets.

    Drew Steckenrider earned the save Friday against the Mets and entered Sunday's game in the ninth inning to preserve a three-run lead. However, Castillo was brought into the game after Steckenrider gave up two runs on four hits and no walks in one-third of an inning. Castillo had given up nine runs in one inning over his last three appearances, but he held the Mets scoreless Sunday to pick up his second save of the year. Although it was encouraging to see the right-hander earn the save Sunday, the Mariners have used a pure committee-based approach for closing duties this season, and Castillo has had just two save opportunities.

  • Mariners' Diego Castillo: Hit hard in Monday's loss

    Castillo allowed three earned runs on five hits over two-thirds of an inning in a loss to the Phillies on Monday. He struck out one.

    Castillo has now put together back-to-back nightmarish appearances, as he also failed to record an out while giving up five earned runs to his old Rays squad Saturday. The sudden slump has ballooned Castillo's previously tidy 2.70 ERA to an unwieldy 9.28. While his career body of work strongly suggests he'll work himself out of the skid in short order, the veteran's one save and zero holds have dinged his fantasy value significantly over the first month-plus of the season.

  • Mariners' Diego Castillo: Picks up first win

    Castillo (1-0) got the win during Saturday's 13-7 victory over the Royals, throwing a 1-2-3 eighth inning.

    Castillo entered a tie game in the eighth and required a surprising 20 pitches to get the three outs despite not allowing a baserunner and fell in line for the victory when Seattle posted a six spot on the scoreboard in the bottom of the inning. The 28-year-old isn't operating in the closer role he's had in the past but is still producing with a 2.57 ERA and seven strikeouts in seven innings.

  • Mariners' Diego Castillo: Scoreless in non-save scenario

    Castillo fired a scoreless ninth inning in a win over the Astros on Sunday, allowing a hit and recording a strikeout.

    The veteran right-hander posted his third scoreless appearance over four trips to the mound this season, with manager Scott Servais giving him some work after Castillo had been idle since Thursday. The 28-year-old has been victimized by a dearth of save opportunities thus far, but he's at least been sharp right from the beginning of the season and should eventually see the ninth-inning opportunities start to come.

  • Mariners' Diego Castillo: Picks up save

    Castillo earned his first save of the season, striking out two in one inning of work in a 4-3 win Saturday in Minnesota.

    Castillo pitched a perfect ninth as the Mariners came back to win against the Twins. Drew Streckenrider was given the save opportunity in the season opener but Castillo was called upon to close out Saturday's game. The 28-year-old primarily served as a setup man after being traded to Seattle midseason but is in the mix to receive save chances. Time will tell who manager Scott Servais will rely on most in save situations.

  • Mariners' Diego Castillo: Gets '22 deal from Seattle

    Castillo and the Mariners agreed Tuesday on a one-year contract to avoid arbitration.

    All of Castillo, Drew Steckenrider and Paul Sewald came to terms on deals to avoid arbitration, leaving the three primary candidates for saves out of the Seattle bullpen on the books for 2022. While splitting time between Tampa Bay and Seattle last season, Castillo delivered a 2.78 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 75:17 K:BB in 58.1 innings while converting 16 of 22 save chances.

  • Mariners' Diego Castillo: Sharing saves again

    The Mariners will use a handful of relievers to close out games again this season, Jesse Borek of MLB.com reports. "We'll have a number of guys who will finish off games for us," manager Scott Servais said.

    Many expected Castillo to pick up more saves upon getting traded to the Mariners last summer, but the opposite occurred, as he converted only two save chances with his new team. Castillo still has good reliever skills, but he's competing with Paul Sewald, Drew Steckenrider and Ken Giles (elbow) for those precious save chances.

  • Mariners' Diego Castillo: Earns win despite blown lead

    Castillo (5-5) got the win over the Athletics on Wednesday but allowed one run on one hit while striking out two over an inning.

    Castillo entered to pitch the top of the seventh with the Mariners clinging on to a 2-1 lead. He retired the first two batters he faced but then missed his location on a slider to Seth Brown, who connected on the pitch and sent it over the wall in right to tie the game. Fortunately, the Mariners were able to manufacture a run in the bottom half of the frame and held on until the end to award Castillo the win. The flame-throwing 27-year-old now has three wins, six holds and a save in 13 appearances this month and has settled in nicely in a setup role in front of Paul Sewald and Drew Steckenrider. Castillo has been very solid again this year, as he has a 2.81 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 73:17 K:BB over 57.2 innings.

  • Mariners' Diego Castillo: Succeeding in set-up role

    Castillo secured his 10th hold of the season against the Athletics on Thursday with a scoreless eighth inning during which he allowed a walk and a strikeout, his third hold in the last four games.

    The big right-hander is just 2-for-5 in save opportunities since joining the Mariners at the trade deadline, and with more reliable ninth-inning options on hand for manager Scott Servais, Castillo has transitioned into a setup role. The move has mostly agreed with him, and he's posted a 2-0 record, 1.93 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 11:2 K:BB over 9.1 innings in September.

  • Mariners' Diego Castillo: Nabs fourth win

    Castillo (4-5) recorded the win in a victory over the Red Sox on Monday, firing a perfect seventh inning during which he recorded two strikeouts.

    The big right-hander was stellar after Logan Gilbert's six strong frames to open the contest. Castillo has been impressive since returning from a stay on the injured list due to a shoulder issue, as he's now posted scoreless efforts in four of the last five appearances while recording a pair of victories during that span.

  • Mariners' Diego Castillo: Collects third win

    Castillo (3-5) earned the win Wednesday over Houston. He allowed one hit and struck out three in a scoreless inning.

    Castillo did his part to keep the game tied at 4-4 in the eighth inning, and Seattle rallied for the lead in the ninth to make him a winner. The right-hander has logged three scoreless innings since he returned from right shoulder inflammation. Castillo owns a 2.77 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 62:15 K:BB through 48.2 innings this year. He's likely to continue to be in Seattle's closer committee with Paul Sewald and Drew Steckenrider.

  • Mariners' Diego Castillo: Earns save in return to action

    Castillo picked up the save against the Diamondbacks on Saturday, pitching a scoreless inning during which he gave up one hit and didn't walk or strike out any batters.

    The right-hander was activated from the injured list earlier in the day and was thrown right into the fire with Seattle leading by three runs in the ninth inning. Castillo yielded a single to open his outing but then induced a foul out and a double play to close the contest. Though he was given the save chance Saturday, Castillo will likely share ninth-inning duties with Paul Sewald and Drew Steckenrider moving forward. Both relievers performed well in Castillo's recent absence, notching two saves apiece.

  • Mariners' Diego Castillo: Returns from injured list

    Castillo (shoulder) was activated off the injured list Saturday.

    Castillo wound up missing two weeks with right shoulder inflammation. He's only recorded one save in 10 appearances for the Mariners since coming over from the Rays at the deadline, but he should be one of the team's top ninth-inning options down the stretch. Paul Sewald has saved eight games this season while striking out 41.0 percent of opposing batters en route to a 2.44 ERA, however, so Castillo could face stiff competition for save chances.

  • Mariners' Diego Castillo: Should return over weekend

    The Mariners plan on sending Castillo (shoulder) to their rookie-level Arizona Complex League affiliate for a one-game rehab assignment before activating him from the 10-day injured list Saturday or Sunday, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.

    Because the Mariners are playing a three-game set in Arizona this weekend, the organization wants to keep Castillo nearby for his rehab assignment rather than having him report to a higher-level affiliate. Castillo has been sidelined for only a week and a half with the inflamed right shoulder, so one tune-up outing in the minors should be all he needs to prove to the Mariners that he's healthy. Once reinstated from the IL, Castillo should re-emerge as a factor in Seattle's closer picture.

  • Mariners' Diego Castillo: Feels good after bullpen session

    Castillo (shoulder) felt good after throwing a bullpen session Monday, though he's expected to need a rehab outing before returning from the injured list, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.

    The Mariners previously expressed optimism that Castillo could return after spending the minimum 10 days on the injured list, but that won't be happening, as that window expired Monday. It doesn't look as though he'll miss too much more time, but he'll miss at least a few more days if the Mariners do indeed go ahead with the rehab assignment.
