Rockies' Ryan Castellani: Stays in organization
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rockies outrighted Castellani to Triple-A Albuquerque on Wednesday.

Castellani will remain a member of the Colorado organization after none of baseball's other 29 teams elected to put in a waiver claim for the 25-year-old right-hander when he was designated for assignment last week. He'll likely slot into the Albuquerque rotation, but his lack of a 40-man roster spot will hamper Castellani's chances of receiving another call-up to the big club.

Rockies' Ryan Castellani: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castellani was designated for assignment by the Rockies on Thursday.

Castellani made just one major-league appearance for Colorado this year, though he started eight games for Triple-A Albuquerque. During the time in the mnors he posted a 7.82 ERA and 1.82 WHIP in 35.2 innings. He'll now be removed from the 40-man roster to make room for left-hander Bernardo Flores, who was claimed off waivers from the Cardinals on Thursday.

Rockies' Ryan Castellani: Returned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castellani was returned to Triple-A Albuquerque following Tuesday's doubleheader against the Giants.

Castellani served as the 27th man in Tuesday's twin bill and made his season debut as the starter in the nightcap. The right-hander allowed two runs on five hits and four walks while striking out two in 3.1 innings. He didn't factor into the decision and will now head back to Triple-A Albuquerque with the minor-league season is underway.

Rockies' Ryan Castellani: No-decision Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castellani did not factor into the decision after surrendering two runs on five hits and four walks while striking out two across 3.1 innings in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Giants.

All of Castellani's damage came on a two-run homer by Brandon Belt in the first inning. Otherwise, it was a short outing for the 25-year-old, who was recalled from Colorado's alternate training site ahead of Tuesday's twin bill as the team's 27th player. Castellani is expected to report back to Triple-A Albuquerque following the doubleheader.

Rockies' Ryan Castellani: Call-up official
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rockies recalled Castellani from their alternate training site ahead of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Giants.

He'll be appointed as the 27th man for the twin bill and is scheduled to start the second game Tuesday. Castellani will likely report to Triple-A Albuquerque following the doubleheader.

Rockies' Ryan Castellani: Getting spot start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bud Black said that Castellani will be called up from Triple-A Albuquerque to start the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Giants, Jenny Cavnar of AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain reports.

German Marquez is thus in line to start the first game of the day after he had his scheduled start Monday postponed due to inclement weather in Colorado. Castellani will likely be designated as the Rockies' 27th man for the twin bill, so he'll presumably head back to Albuquerque following the spot start. The 25-year-old right-hander made 10 appearances (nine starts) for Colorado as a rookie in 2020, posting a 5.82 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 25:26 K:BB in 43.1 innings.

Rockies' Ryan Castellani: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castellani was optioned to Triple-A on Tuesday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

The 24-year-old righty gave up seven earned runs in two frames this spring. He needed 61 pitches to get those six outs and did not record a strikeout. Castellani will serve as organizational rotation depth this season.

Rockies' Ryan Castellani: Gives up three runs Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castellani allowed three runs on no hits and three walks while failing to record an out in Monday's spring loss to the Reds. He didn't factor into the decision.

Castellani struggled mightily with control during his second Cactus League appearance Monday. He only threw one strike across his 17 pitches and let three runs come across while issuing three walks and hitting one batter during the relief outing. The right-hander has now given up 10 runs (seven earned) on two hits and five walks while failing to record a strikeout across two innings to begin spring training.

Rockies' Ryan Castellani: Struggles in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castellani allowed seven runs (four earned) on two hits and two walks while failing to strike out any batters over two innings in Wednesday's Cactus League win over the Athletics. He didn't factor into the decision.

Castellani gave up three earned runs in the first inning, while multiple errors in the second frame resulted in several more runs for Oakland. However, the right-hander picked up a no-decision after the Rockies mounted a 10-run rally across the final four innings. Castellani admitted that his struggles stemmed from rushed mechanics during his brief outing, but he said that he wants to work on making adjustments sooner to prevent similar results during the regular season. The 24-year-old made his major-league debut in 2020 and is competing with southpaw Austin Gomber for the fifth spot in the starting rotation. Gomber was impressive during Sunday's spring opener, and the team could choose to develop Castellani more to begin the season if his struggles during Cactus League play continue.

Rockies' Ryan Castellani: Command struggles continue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castellani (1-4) took the loss against the Giants on Wednesday, surrendering four runs on five hits and five walks while striking out one across 4.2 innings.

Castellani blanked the Giants until the fourth inning, when he served up a solo home run to Evan Longoria to even the score, 1-1. The right-hander unraveled from there, working himself into a mess of a fifth inning that included a double by Alex Dickerson and a pair of walks. All of Castellani's baserunners would eventually score after he left the game, charging him with the loss. The 24-year-old struggled with his command once again. He has now issued 18 walks across 19 innings in his last four starts and finishes the regular season with a 5.82 ERA and 1.45 WHIP.

Rockies' Ryan Castellani: Hit hard by Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castellani (1-3) gave up eight runs (seven earned) on four hits and three walks while striking out one over 4.1 innings in Friday's loss to the Dodgers.

This was always going to be a tough start for the 24-year-old rookie. Castellani allowed a pair of two-run homers to Cody Bellinger and Gavin Lux in the second inning. In the fifth, Castellani again ran into trouble as the Dodgers rallied for five more runs, four of which were charged to him. The right-hander now has a 5.59 ERA and 1.37 WHIP across 38.2 innings this year. He lines up for one more start in the regular season, Wednesday in San Francisco.

Rockies' Ryan Castellani: Can't find command in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castellani allowed one run on one hit and six walks across 5.2 innings pitched in Sunday's loss to the Angels. He struck out four and did not factor in the decision.

Castellani somehow managed to give up just the one run despite yielding six free passes. The right-hander was in line to pick up the win when he exited in the sixth but had to settle for a no-decision after the Colorado bullpen could not hold the lead. He will take a 4.46 ERA into his start against the Dodgers on Friday.

Rockies' Ryan Castellani: Gives up four runs in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castellani pitched 4.1 innings, allowing four runs on six hits and four walks and striking out one in a no-decision against the Dodgers on Sunday.

The original plan was for Castellani to work more as an opener with Chi Chi Gonzalez working in a piggyback role. Instead, Castellani threw 87 pitches (49 strikes) in a fairly erratic start and Gonzalez didn't make an appearance. Luckily for Castellani, the back-and-forth contest allowed him to avoid a loss. He now has a 5.34 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 19 strikeouts across 28.2 innings. If the right-hander gets another turn in the rotation, it would likely come at home versus the Angels on Saturday.

Rockies' Ryan Castellani: In line for piggyback start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castellani is scheduled to start Sunday's game against the Dodgers, but Chi Chi Gonzalez is expected to piggyback him in the outing, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

Castellani opened his big-league career by giving up one run over 8.2 innings in his first two starts, but regression has reared its head since then, with the right-hander surrendering 12 runs over his subsequent three starts. The Rockies may have discovered a better role for Castellani on Wednesday, when he came on in relief of Kyle Freeland to fire two shutout innings in Colorado's 9-6 win over the Giants. While Castellani will stay on turn to start this weekend in Los Angeles, the Rockies will be conservative with his workload since he'll be pitching on three days' rest following his 26-pitch relief outing. Gonzalez also tossed two innings (46 pitches) in relief Wednesday, so neither he nor Castellani will probably be in line for a true "bulk innings" role.

Rockies' Ryan Castellani: Yanked after two innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castellani (1-2) allowed five runs on six hits and a walk over two innings Sunday, striking out two and taking the loss against San Diego.

Castellani struggled right out of the gate, allowing a three-run homer with just one out in the first inning. He then allowed a pair of runs in the second before the bullpen took over. The 24-year-old's season ERA shot up to 5.24 as a result of the rough outing. Castellani will next face the Dodgers on the road Saturday.

Rockies' Ryan Castellani: Solid for six innings in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castellani (1-1) gave up two runs on three hits and three walks across six innings in a win over the Diamondbacks on Monday. He struck out three.

Both runs Castellani allowed came on solo home runs by Kole Calhoun and Christian Walker. The 24-year-old Castellani has been solid in four starts, with a 3.54 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 14 strikeouts over 20.1 innings. He's expected to make his next start Saturday at home versus the Padres.

Rockies' Ryan Castellani: Serves up two homers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castellani (0-1) allowed five runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out one over 5.2 innings in a loss to the Astros on Wednesday.

All things considered, Castellani was lucky to leave this game with only five earned runs on his ledger; both homers he allowed were solo shots. He had a decent start at home last week against the Rangers, but Castellani averaged just 7.3 K/9 in six minor-league seasons and that kind of profile spells danger in Colorado. Assuming he sticks in the rotation, Castellani will get two starts next week, first at Arizona and then home against the Padres.

Rockies' Ryan Castellani: Fans seven in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castellani didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Rangers, allowing one run on two hits and two walks over 4.2 innings. He struck out seven.

The rookie didn't last long enough to qualify for a win, but the Rockies offense couldn't get much going against Lance Lynn anyway. Castellani threw 88 pitches, 57 of them for strikes, and despite significant control problems in the minors (47:30 K:BB in 43.1 IP at Triple-A last year) he has a surprising 10:3 K:BB through his first 8.2 big-league innings. He's pitched well enough to stick in the rotation for now, but it's not yet clear whether the 24-year-old is displaying real skills growth, or whether the walks will resurface. His next start is scheduled for Wednesday, at home against the Astros.

Rockies' Ryan Castellani: Gets another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castellani is scheduled to start Friday's home game against the Rangers.

With Chi Chi Gonzalez (biceps) still on the injured list, Castellani will receive a second turn as the Rockies' fifth starter after impressing in his MLB debut last weekend in Seattle. He tossed four no-hit, shutout innings in the win over the Mariners, issuing one walk and hitting a batter while striking out three. Though Castellani may be able to work a little longer in Friday's start, the right-hander should still be viewed as a risky fantasy option since he'll be pitching at altitude in Coors Field.

Rockies' Ryan Castellani: Tosses scoreless outing in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castellani didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's contest between the Mariners and the Rockies. He pitched four scoreless innings, allowing one walk and striking out three.

Castellani was recalled by the Rockies on Friday after Chi Chi Gonzalez was placed on the 10-day injured list with a biceps injury, and he did a good job in his MLB debut -- he threw 35 of his 60 pitches for strikes while tossing four scoreless frames. He should remain in the rotation as long as Gonzalez remains sidelined.
