Pirates' Rodolfo Castro: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates optioned Castro to their alternate training site Tuesday.

The 21-year-old infielder appeared in one game during his first cup of coffee in the majors, going 0-for-3 in an April 21 loss to the Tigers. He'll likely report to Triple-A Indianapolis or Double-A Altoona when the minor-league season begins next week, and he'll likely remain on the farm for much of the 2021 campaign unless the Pirates' infield depth is tested.

Pirates' Rodolfo Castro: Making MLB debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro is making his MLB debut in Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Pirates. He is starting at third base and batting eighth.

The Pirates protected Castro from the Rule 5 draft by adding him to the 40-man roster this past offseason, and that will enable him to make his MLB debut before playing a game at Double-A or Triple-A. Castro hits the ball really hard but has some major swing-and-miss concerns. He can play second base in addition to the hot corner and will likely head back to the minors in the near future.

Pirates' Rodolfo Castro: Recalled by Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro was recalled by the Pirates on Wednesday.

Castro was sent down by the Pirates in mid-March and hasn't yet played above High-A. However, he'll join the major-league roster after Anthony Alford was designated for assignment in a corresponding move. Castro hit .136 with two home runs and six RBI this spring and should mainly serve in a depth role for the Pirates.

Pirates' Rodolfo Castro: Optioned Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates optioned Castro to minor-league camp Tuesday.

The switch-hitting infielder has gone 3-for-19 in Grapefruit League action, but he hit home runs on consecutive days in his most recent pair of games. Known for his elite exit velocity, the 21-year-old will likely begin 2021 at Double-A Altoona. Castro hit 19 homers in 2019 while splitting time between Low-A and High-A ball.

Pirates' Rodolfo Castro: Contract purchased by Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro's contract was selected by the Pirates on Friday.

Castro is best known for posting some pretty elite exit velocity readings in the lower levels by middle infielder standards. He hit 14 home runs in 61 games at Low-A in 2019 as a 20-year-old, which is quite the feat, but he fell flat after a promotion to High-A. Castro will likely open the year at High-A or Double-A and could reach the majors in 2022.
