Castillo allowed three runs on six hits and two walks across four innings in a no-decision Sunday against the Cubs. He struck out three.
Castillo got into a bit of trouble in the second inning, allowing two runs on two hits and a walk to start the frame. He was spotted a one-run lead going into the fourth, but he gave that right back as the hosts scored on a pair of hits to tie the game. Castillo worked up to 83 pitches to escape the jam and wasn't brought back out as the game moved into the fifth. It was a disappointing outing for Castillo, who delivered one of his strongest starts of the season last time out, and he'll look to get back on track next weekend against the Cardinals.
Castillo (5-8) tossed 6.2 one-run innings to earn the win Monday against the White Sox, allowing six hits with no walks and six strikeouts.
Castillo limited baserunners to great effect and wasn't even scored upon until the bullpen allowed an inherited runner to score with two outs in the seventh inning. He threw an impressive 73 percent of his pitches for strikes, inducing a whopping 21 swinging strikes and nine groundball outs in what was one of his finest outings of the season. Castillo still has a 5.53 ERA after allowing three earned runs or more in each of his previous six starts, but he continues to flash his potential from time to time. He'll look to build on this effort Sunday against the Cubs.
Castillo didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 6-5 win over the Braves, allowing five runs (four earned) on six hits and a walk over four-plus innings while striking out four.
After setting down 11 straight batters to begin the game, Castillo fell apart with two outs in the fourth inning, then allowed the first two hitters he faced in the fifth to reach base before getting the hook. Despite his clear upside, the right-hander's inconsistency, both from start-to-start and within an outing, makes him a very difficult player to rely on in a fantasy lineup. Castillo will carry a 5.85 ERA into his next start Monday at home against the White Sox.
Castillo (5-8) picked up the win in Friday's 6-3 victory over the Cubs, allowing three runs on four hits and a walk over 5.2 innings while striking out five.
The right-hander fell just short of a quality start, getting the hook after hitting Javier Baez with a pitch to put runners at first and second with two outs in the sixth inning of a 4-3 game, but Castillo was still able to notch his first win in almost a month. He'll carry a 5,70 ERA into his next outing Wednesday in Atlanta.
Castillo (4-8) took the loss against the Pirates on Saturday, allowing three runs on six hits and two walks across five innings. He struck out two.
Castillo once again struggled to keep the ball in the park, allowing a pair of homers for the second straight game and putting his season total at a brutal 17 home runs allowed through 78 innings. The 25-year-old has now taken a loss in four straight starts, a stretch in which he's gone six innings just once and allowed a combined 16 runs over 20.2 frames. He'll carry an unsightly 5.77 ERA into his next start, which will come at home against the Cubs.
