Reds' Luis Castillo: Rebounds with win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castillo (12-5) allowed one run on five hits with no walks and four strikeouts across six innings while earning a victory against the Padres on Wednesday.

After his roughest outing of the season in his last start, Castillo responded as one would have expected. He didn't strike out as many as he's averaged per start this year, but with no walks, he also allowed fewer baserunners than normal. Castillo already has set career highs in wins and strikeouts and is posed to do the same in ERA and innings. He has 12 wins with a 3.04 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 179 strikeouts in 154 innings. Castillo will pitch next at the Marlins on Tuesday.

Reds' Luis Castillo: Tagged for eight runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castillo (11-5) was saddled with the loss after allowing eight runs on nine hits while striking out three over 4.1 innings Friday night against the Cardinals.

Castillo never settled into this one, surrendering one run in the first inning, followed by three in the second, two in the third and two more in the fifth. He struggled to keep the ball in the park, as seven of his eight runs allowed came via the long ball. Despite an uncharacteristic outing, Castillo sports a 3.10 ERA and 1.14 WHIP with a 175:61 K:BB over 148 frames in 2019.

Reds' Luis Castillo: Strikes out eight in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castillo gave up three runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out eight through 6.2 innings in a no-decision against the Cubs on Sunday.

Castillo looked to be cruising until running into trouble in the seventh inning, eventually leading to his exit and a loss for the Reds. After dominating with his changeup in his last start, he collected another 10 swinging strikes and threw his changeup more than any other pitch. Castillo has a 2.69 ERA and 172 strikeouts through 24 starts this season. Castillo will make his next start Friday against the Cardinals at Great American Ball Park.

Reds' Luis Castillo: Fans 13 for 11th win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castillo (11-4) picked up the win after surrendering two runs on three hits and a walk while striking out 13 over seven innings Monday against the Angels.

Castillo gave up a pair of solo homers in the second and third innings, but he was otherwise locked in Monday evening. The 26-year-old right-hander has now secured back-to-back victories, yielding just three runs while fanning 20 over his last two starts (14 innings).

August 1, 2019 06:28 PM
Reds' Luis Castillo: Strikes out seven in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castillo (10-4) allowed one run on six hits with no walks and seven strikeouts across seven innings while earning a victory against the Pirates on Wednesday.

After giving up a season-high six runs in his last outing, this was a great bounceback effort and could have been expected, given that Castillo owns a 1.50 ERA against the Pirates this season. Overall, Castillo's been one of the better starting pitching fantasy assets this season, as he has posted a 2.63 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 151 strikeouts in 130 innings this season. Castillo will look to build off this outing in his next start Monday against the Angels at home.

Reds' Luis Castillo: Knocked around by Colorado
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castillo (9-4) took the loss after yielding six runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out six over five innings Friday night against the Rockies.

Castillo was hit hard from the very start, surrendering three runs in the first inning followed by three in the fourth prior to being lifted with a four-run deficit. He fired 61 of 97 pitches for strikes and threw first-pitch strikes to 15 of the 25 batters he faced. Despite a rough outing, the 26-year-old has been impressive for Cincinnati this season, posting a 2.71 ERA and 1.15 WHIP with a 144:59 K:BB across 123 frames.

Reds' Luis Castillo: Quality start in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castillo didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Cardinals, allowing one run on five hits and a walk over six innings while striking out four.

Despite producing his fourth straight quality start and 13th of the season, Castillo was actually in line for his fourth loss until the Reds offense woke up and put three runs on the board in the seventh inning. The right-hander will take a 2.36 ERA and 138:57 K:BB through 118 innings into his next outing Friday, at home against the Rockies.

July 16, 2019 09:24 AM
Reds' Luis Castillo: Fans 10 in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castillo (9-3) allowed three runs on seven hits and three walks over six innings Monday, striking out 10 and earning the win over the Cubs.

Castillo yielded a third-inning homer to Kyle Schwarber and allowed a pair of runs in the fourth inning but the Reds managed to tally five unanswered runs to earn him the victory. It was his first start with double-digit strikeouts since he fanned 11 on May 10. He'll carry a 2.41 ERA into Saturday's home start against St. Louis.

Reds' Luis Castillo: Tosses gem for eighth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castillo (8-3) earned the win after allowing just one hit and one walk while striking out nine batters over 7.2 frames to beat the Brewers on Thursday.

If possible, the incredible pitching line actually underrates Castillo's performance, as his lone walk was charged to him despite being finished by David Hernandez after Castillo was taken out during a rain delay. Thursday's start was the fourth time all season Castillo has done his work without allowing a single run. His 2.29 ERA is second-best in the National League.

Reds' Luis Castillo: Pitches brilliantly in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castillo (7-3) allowed one run on three hits with six strikeouts and three walks across seven innings while taking a loss against the Cubs on Saturday.

He was outstanding but allowed a second-inning homer to Jason Heyward that was all the Cubs needed. Castillo has been particularly effective In his last six starts, permitting only 10 earned runs in 34 innings. The 26-year-old is 7-3 with a 2.47 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP despite walking 52 in 98.1 innings, though Castillo has offset the free passes by punching out 115. He will be on the mound again at home against the Brewers next Thursday.

Reds' Luis Castillo: Walks five in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castillo allowed six runs (four earned) on five hits with six strikeouts and five walks across 3.2 innings while taking a loss against the Brewers on Saturday.

Not much was working for Castillo in this outing, as he allowed his most hits in a start since May 27. He has dealt with control problems all season, but the issue burned him in this one as three of his five walks came around to score. Castillo is 7-2 with a 2.56 ERA. He also has a 1.17 WHIP despite a .182 batting average against because of 49 walks in 91.1 innings. Castillo has also punched out 109 batters. He will be on the mound again at home against the Cubs next Saturday.

Reds' Luis Castillo: Works around six walks in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castillo (7-1) allowed two runs on two hits with seven strikeouts and six walks across six innings while earning a victory against the Astros on Monday.

This was a pretty typical Castillo start. He's had control issues all season, but this was a new low, as Castillo walked a season-high six batters, raising his BB/9 to 4.5. However, opponents are also batting just .175 against Castillo, and as a result, he leads the league with a 5.4 H/9. That's enabled Castillo to post a 2.26 ERA and 1.11 WHIP. He is also 7-1 with 103 strikeouts in 87.2 innings this season. Castillo will look to keep his strong season going and maybe display a little better control in his next start Saturday at the Brewers.

Reds' Luis Castillo: Whiffs six in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castillo allowed one earned run on four hits and two walks while striking out six across six innings Tuesday against the Indians. He did not factor into the decision.

Castillo's only earned run came on a homer by Carlos Santana in the fourth inning. He was tagged for three other extra-base hits -- all doubles -- but worked around them with timely strikeouts, particularly in the sixth frame when he struck out the final two batters with the bases loaded. Castillo now has a 2.20 ERA and 1.09 WHIP across 81.2 innings to go along with 96 strikeouts. His next start is currently scheduled for Monday against Houston.

Reds' Luis Castillo: Ends mini slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castillo held the Cardinals to one run over six innings to get the win Tuesday, striking out eight while allowing two hits and four walks.

The only run against Castillo came on the first batter he faced, a leadoff homer by Matt Carpenter. Castillo's last two outings were shakier, especially a 2.2-inning start against the Brewers on May 22. The four walks are a bit of a concern -- he now has allowed 11 walks in his last three starts, covering 14 innings.

Reds' Luis Castillo: Scheduled to start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castillo is scheduled to start Tuesday against the Cardinals, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

Castillo was originally expected to get the ball for Sunday's series finale against the Nationals, but Sonny Gray will make that start instead. The young right-hander should benefit from some extra rest before his next outing; over his last two starts, Castillo has allowed seven runs (six earned) on 11 hits with a 6:7 K:BB in eight innings.

Reds' Luis Castillo: Settles for no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castillo allowed three runs (two earned) on six hits with four strikeouts and four walks across 5.1 innings during a no-decision against the Pirates in the first game of Monday's doubleheader.

While he did allow 10 baserunners, Castillo fell victim to some poor defense in the sixth. The Reds had just taken their first lead in the bottom of the fifth when Cincinnati's infield committed two costly mistakes (one of which was recorded an error). Castillo could have been out of the inning, but instead, the Reds turned to their bullpen, which blew the lead and Castillo's chance at the win. With a 5-1 record, though, Castillo is experiencing a great season. He also has a 2.45 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, .187 batting average against and 82 strikeouts in 69.2 innings. He is scheduled to pitch next against the Nationals on Sunday.

Reds' Luis Castillo: Throws shortest outing of year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castillo allowed four runs on five hits with two strikeouts and three walks across 2.2 innings during a no-decision against the Brewers on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old couldn't take advantage of the Reds' offense scoring six runs through three frames. Castillo needed 75 pitches to record eight outs and failed to reach the end of the third inning for the first time this season. Still, owners have to be very pleased with Castillo's first 11 starts. He is 5-1 with a 2.38 ERA and 1.04 WHIP in 64.1 innings. Castillo also possesses a 0.7 HR/9 and .176 batting average against. He will look to bounce back in his next start against the Pirates on Monday.

Reds' Luis Castillo: Records fifth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castillo (5-1) picked up the win against the Cubs on Thursday, giving up two earned runs on two hits over 5.1 innings, striking out six and walking one as the Reds won 4-2.

Castillo continues to dominate, as he picked up his fifth win in six decisions to start the season while providing yet another solid stat line. The right-hander is putting up Cy Young-caliber numbers at the outset of 2019, as he now boasts a fantastic 1.90 ERA, a 0.96 WHIP and a 76:25 K:BB through 61.2 innings.

Reds' Luis Castillo: Dominant again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castillo threw six scoreless innings against the Giants on Friday night to get his fourth win of the season. He struck out 11 while allowing two hits and five walks. He generated 15 swings and misses on his changeup, accounting for nine of his strikeouts, and threw his changeup 40 times in the effort, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

It's those five walks that drove Castillo's pitch count over 100 after six innings, leading to the early exit. He was facing a Giants team that scored four against him in his previous outing, his worst so far this season, albeit without Buster Posey, who is now on the injured list. He next faces a red-hot Cubs lineup back in Great American Ballpark, a challenge that will really test his newfound ace level.

Reds' Luis Castillo: Fans nine in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castillo yielded four runs on four hits and two walks over seven innings Sunday, taking the no-decision during a loss to the Giants. He struck out nine batters.

Castillo had allowed just one baserunner via a fourth-inning walk through five frames. He then was drilled for four runs in the sixth, including a three-run shot from Buster Posey. It was the worst outing of the year for Castillo, who still owns a terrific 1.96 ERA and 59:19 K:BB. The 6-foot-2 righty will aim for revenge against San Francisco on Friday.
