  • Diamondbacks' Humberto Castellanos: Can't capitalize on run support

    Castellanos did not factor in the decision against Colorado on Friday, allowing six runs on nine hits and one walk while striking out four across 5.2 innings.

    Through five innings, the right-hander held Colorado off the scoreboard, at one point retiring 11 straight batters. His three-run homer in the third inning helped stake him to a seven-run lead, and it appeared that Castellanos was on his way to an easy win. However, he gave nearly the entire lead back in the sixth frame, when the Rockies tagged him for six runs on six hits, with the big blow being a Sam Hilliard three-run homer. The blowup marked not only the most runs Castellanos has given up in an inning this season, it also led to his highest run total for an entire outing on the campaign. He'll likely finish 2021 with a 4.93 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 29:15 K:BB across 45.2 innings.

  • Diamondbacks' Humberto Castellanos: Surrenders three runs again

    Castellanos (2-2) took the loss in Friday's 4-2 defeat at the hands of the Dodgers, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks with one strikeout in five innings.

    Castellanos pitched well aside from the second inning, when he permitted all three runs on consecutive hits to lead off the inning. The 23-year-old has now surrendered exactly three runs in each of his last three starts while pitching between five and 5.1 innings in each. He's tentatively lined up to take the mound next Friday against Colorado.

  • Diamondbacks' Humberto Castellanos: No-decision Saturday

    Castellanos didn't factor into the decision Saturday against the Astros after allowing three runs on eight hits and a walk while fanning three across five innings.

    Castellanos has started in each of his last five outings but hasn't looked very good, and he has given up at least three runs in each of his last three appearances while failing to complete six frames each time. He's not expected to pitch deep into games and hasn't looked dominant by any means, so his upside should be matchup-dependent the rest of the way.

  • Diamondbacks' Humberto Castellanos: Notches win Saturday

    Castellanos (2-1) got the win in Saturday's 7-3 victory over the Mariners, allowing three runs on four hits and a walk with four strikeouts in 5.1 innings.

    After struggling in his previous start against Seattle, Castellanos pitched much better Saturday in permitting only five total baserunners. He was bitten by the long ball as all three runs surrendered came on two Mariners home runs, but Arizona staked its starter to an early lead that it didn't relinquish. The 23-year-old may have done enough to earn another turn in the rotation and currently lines up to face Houston on Friday.

  • Diamondbacks' Humberto Castellanos: Gets another turn in rotation

    Castellanos is listed as the Diamondbacks' scheduled starter for Saturday's game in Seattle.

    With Taylor Widener recently moving to the bullpen and Merrill Kelly (illness) still in the process of building up after being placed on the COVID-19 injured list, Castellanos will pick up a second straight start following his Sept. 4 call-up from Triple-A Reno. He faltered in his start against this same Mariners squad, lasting only 3.2 innings while giving up five runs on seven hits and a walk in a no-decision. Kelly threw 51 pitches in an intrasquad game last weekend and looks on track to return from the IL next week, so Castellanos will likely head to the bullpen or back to Triple-A following Saturday's outing.

  • Diamondbacks' Humberto Castellanos: Scheduled starter Saturday

    Castellanos is the scheduled starter for Saturday's game against the Mariners.

    The Diamondbacks will officially call up Castellanos from Triple-A Reno at some point ahead of the start, which begins at 8:10 pm E.T. Saturday night. Taylor Widener had been the presumed starter, but Arizona manager Torey Lovullo opted to move him to the bullpen, opening a rotation spot for Castellanos.

  • Diamondbacks' Humberto Castellanos: Struggles in Saturday's start

    Castellanos allowed five runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out four over 3.2 innings against Seattle on Saturday. He did not factor in the decision.

    The right-hander had pitched well across 21 innings for Arizona coming into the contest, but his ERA jumped from 2.14 to 3.65 after the Mariners lit him up for five runs. Three of those runs came on a first-inning homer off the bat of Kyle Seager, and the remaining two were tallied after Castellanos left the contest with two outs in the fourth. If he remains in the rotation, Castellanos will likely get a rematch against the Mariners next weekend.

  • Diamondbacks' Humberto Castellanos: Officially recalled Saturday

    Castellanos was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Saturday.

    Castellanos is slated to start Saturday's game against Seattle, and he'll officially rejoin the major-league club after spending just over two weeks in the minors. The right-hander has posted a 0.84 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 10.2 innings across his last three appearances with the Diamondbacks.

  • Diamondbacks' Humberto Castellanos: Does it all in win

    Castellanos (1-1) allowed one run on three hits and two walks while striking out one over 5.1 innings to earn the win over Philadelphia on Wednesday.

    Castellanos was key with his bat as well, going 2-for-2 with an RBI single in the fourth inning to give the Diamondbacks a lead they never relinquished. He almost had an RBI two frames earlier, but Josh Rojas was gunned down at home trying to score on the pitcher's first single. The 23-year-old right-hander picked up his first win and hit in the majors in just his second start. In his first start July 7, Castellanos threw four shutout innings at the Rockies. With Merrill Kelly (illness) up in the air, Castellanos could start another game next week.

  • Diamondbacks' Humberto Castellanos: Dropped to minors

    Castellanos was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Thursday.

    Castellanos was recalled to start Wednesday's game against the Phillies and got the job done, allowing just one run on three hits in 5.1 innings of work. His reward for that performance is a trip back to Triple-A, as the Diamondbacks clear a roster spot for Noe Ramirez's return from the COVID-19 injured list.

  • Diamondbacks' Humberto Castellanos: On tap for second MLB start

    Castellanos is listed as the Diamondbacks' probable starting pitcher for Wednesday's game against the Phillies.

    Though Caleb Smith would have been stretched out enough to start after tossing 5.1 innings in his long relief in his last outing Aug. 12 versus the Padres, the Diamondbacks will instead turn to Castellanos to fill Merrill Kelly's (COVID-19 injured list) spot in the rotation. Castellanos' lone big-league start came in his last outing for Arizona on July 7 at home versus Colorado, when he struck out two over four scoreless frames. The 23-year-old right-hander has maxed out at six innings during his time in the minors since that July 7 start, so he shouldn't face significant restrictions with his workload Wednesday, when he steps back into the Arizona rotation.

  • Diamondbacks' Humberto Castellanos: Recalled to Arizona

    Castellanos was recalled by the Diamondbacks from Triple-A Reno on Thursday.

    Castellanos has thrown 15.2 innings with the big-league club this season, primarily as a reliever. He's capable of throwing multiple innings out of the bullpen and may be asked to do so Thursday with Matt Peacock drawing a spot start. Castellanos has produced poor ratios at hitter-friendly Triple-A Reno this season, but has a fairly strong 16.8 K-BB%.

  • Diamondbacks' Humberto Castellanos: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Diamondbacks optioned Castellanos to Triple-A Reno on Friday.

    Castellanos, who made his first career start Wednesday, has a 2.30 ERA and 12:7 K:BB in 15.2 big-league innings this season. Given his solid performance, it would not be surprising to see him recalled at some point later in 2021 for some added depth in the rotation or bullpen.

  • Diamondbacks' Humberto Castellanos: No-decision as starter

    Castellanos allowed four hits and one walk while striking out two over four scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Rockies on Wednesday.

    Castellanos made his first start in the majors and held his own through four innings and 60 pitches (42 strikes). The 23-year-old right-hander mixed in all five of his pitches to generate 14 called strikes and swing-and-misses. He became the 14th player to start a game for the Diamondbacks, but it's unclear if he'll get another opportunity. This was the final turn of the rotation spot before the All-Star break, and Arizona could have Madison Bumgarner (shoulder) and Taylor Widener (groin) back in the rotation after the break.

  • Diamondbacks' Humberto Castellanos: Named Wednesday starter

    Castellanos will start Wednesday against the Rockies, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.

    Castellanos has allowed one earned run on three hits and two walks across two relief appearances since being recalled June 28. He tossed four innings in his last outing with Reno on June 25, so he should be eligible to provide multiple innings Wednesday. That said, he seems like a long shot to qualify for a win.

  • Diamondbacks' Humberto Castellanos: Recalled by Diamondbacks

    Castellanos was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Monday.

    Castellanos was sent down Friday, but he'll return to the major-league roster after Ketel Marte (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list. The right-hander has made five appearances for the Diamondbacks this year, and he's posted a 3.24 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in 8.1 innings.

  • Diamondbacks' Humberto Castellanos: Returns to minors

    Castellanos was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Friday.

    Castellanos was called up by Arizona on Friday, but he didn't make any appearances over the last several days. The right-hander has posted a 3.24 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in 8.1 innings across five relief appearances with the Diamondbacks this year but will now return to the minors after right-hander Matt Peacock was reinstated from the bereavement list in a corresponding move.

    Castellanos was recalled by the Diamondbacks on Monday.

    Castellanos had only just been sent down Thursday. He's made five major-league appearances this season, posting a 3.24 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in 8.1 innings of work. Matt Peacock landed on the bereavement list in a corresponding move.
