Castillo (elbow) was placed on the 60-day injured list Saturday.
Castillo's placement on the injured list is simply procedural since he was recently diagnosed with a UCL tear that will require Tommy John surgery. As a result, he'll miss the entire 2021 campaign and could also be sidelined to begin 2022. The move will clear a spot on the 40-man roster for right-hander Jordan Humphreys, who was claimed off waivers in a corresponding move.
Castillo has been diagnosed with a UCL tear that will require Tommy John surgery, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Castillo suffered a setback while throwing his first live bullpen session of the year Tuesday, and he'll miss the entire 2021 campaign after being diagnosed with a torn UCL. The southpaw has dealt with various injuries in recent years and will now face a lengthy recovery process going forward.
Castillo was diagnosed with forearm tightness Tuesday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Castillo has dealt with a long list of injuries in recent seasons and suffered another one during his first live batting practice session of the year. Forearm tightness can sometimes be the first sign of a more serious injury; we'll know more after he undergoes another evaluation Wednesday.
Castillo's (lat) first live bullpen session of spring training concluded early Tuesday after he appeared to experience discomfort, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
The exact source of Castillo's discomfort isn't known, but he's most likely dealing with a setback related to the left lat/forearm injuries that have sidelined him for the majority of the past two seasons. Despite Castillo's shaky health track record, the Padres recognized enough potential in the reliever to tender him a contract for 2021, hoping he could reemerge as an impact contributor in the middle or late innings. The Padres will presumably evaluate Castillo over the next few days before more information on his latest injury becomes available, but even a minor setback could keep him on the shelf to begin the season.
Castillo is throwing regular bullpen sessions but will "take it slowly" during spring training, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Castillo has thrown only two-thirds of an inning since his debut 2018 campaign due to a variety of injuries, so it's logical that the Padres will not rush him back into action. That said, manager Jayce Tingler described Castillo as "full-go," so the left-hander could play a key role in the team's bullpen if he's able to stay healthy.
The Padres reinstated Castillo (lat) from the 45-day injured list Nov. 2.
According to Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune, the Padres declared Castillo healthy heading into the winter after he was limited to just one appearance with the big club over the past two seasons while missing time with a torn ligament in a finger on his left hand and a strained left flexor tendon. When he was last healthy in 2018, Castillo was a key bullpen piece for San Diego, delivering a 3.29 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 52 strikeouts in 38.1 innings. If he can avoid any further setbacks this spring, Castillo could break camp as one of the Padres' top setup options.
Castillo (lat) was transferred to the 45-day injured list Friday.
Castillo has been on the injured list with a Grade 2 lat strain since July 23, and the procedural move of transferring him to the 45-day IL will free up a spot on the 40-man roster. The southpaw could still potentially return during the 2020 campaign, but a timetable hasn't been established.
Castillo (lat) threw from 120 feet Friday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Castillo has been out since early July with a Grade 2 lat strain. He appears to be nearing a return, though when exactly that's expected to happen remains unclear.
Castillo (lat) is feeling much better as he continues to recover, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.
Castillo has been sidelined since early July with a lat strain, but manager Jayce Tingler provided an encouraging update on his status Monday. The southpaw still hasn't resumed throwing off a mound, but Tingler said that he remains optimistic that Castillo will be able to pitch for the Padres later in the season.
Castillo (lat) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday.
Castillo was diagnosed with a Grade 2 lat strain July 9 and was subsequently projected to miss six weeks, so a move to the injured list was inevitable. While a return during the 2020 season isn't out of the question, the severity of the injury leaves Castillo's status for the campaign in doubt.
Castillo has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 lat strain and could miss six weeks as a result, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.
This is a tough blow for Castillo, who suffered the injury during Tuesday's intrasquad game. While the Padres are hoping that he'll be able to pitch at some point during the abbreviated 2020 season, manager Jayce Tingler acknowledged that Castillo will "need some breaks" in order for that to happen.
Castillo exited Tuesday's intrasquad scrimmage with what appears to be a lat strain, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Castillo is set to undergo additional testing in the coming days, after which the specifics and severity of his injury should become clearer. If the southpaw is in fact dealing with a strained lat, there's a good chance it could impact his availability for the start of the season.
Castillo threw a sim game Sunday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Castillo has been brought along slowly this spring after an injury-plagued 2019 campaign in which he was limited to 8.2 combined major- and minor-league innings. With a simulated game now in the books, Castillo could feasibly earn a spot on the Opening Day roster if he's able to pitch in a few Cactus League games before the end of spring training.
Castillo (finger) is being eased into action this spring, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
While Castillo appears healthy entering the campaign, the Padres have elected to nudge him along slowly following a season in which injuries to his forearm and finger limited the southpaw to a combined 8.2 innings between the minors and majors. Manager Jayce Tingler did not provide a target date for Castillo to take the mound in a game, but he has not yet ruled out the possibility of the reliever making the Opening Day roster.
Castillo (finger) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Monday.
Castillo has already been ruled out for the remainder of the season with a torn tendon in his left middle finger. This move frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for Ronald Bolanos, who was summoned from Double-A Amarillo on Monday.
Castillo will miss the rest of the 2019 season with a torn tendon in his left middle finger, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.
Castillo landed on the injured list Friday with a finger strain, but it appears he suffered a more severe injury. It's incredibly bad luck for the 23-year-old as he sustained the injury Thursday in his season debut after spending the first four-plus months of the year on the injured list. Castillo won't need to undergo surgery but will still miss the remainder of the season.
Castillo was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with a left middle finger strain.
Castillo suffered the injury Thursday night in his first game back from the 60-day IL, so he'll head right back to the shelf for at least the next 10 days. He'll be eligible to return Aug. 19. Gerardo Reyes was recalled from Triple-A El Paso in a corresponding move.
The injury that caused Castillo to leave Thursday's game may be tendon-related, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.
An earlier report suggested that Castillo may have exited due to a blister, but the presence of a splint on his left middle finger after the game implies that the injury may be more severe. Castillo suffered the injury while pitching in his first major-league game this season following a stint on the 60-day injured list due to a left forearm flexor strain.
Castillo left Thursday's game against the Rockies due to an apparent finger injury, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. He walked one and struck out two over 0.2 innings prior to departing.
Castillo was just activated from the injured list earlier in the day after missing time with a left forearm flexor strain, though he now appears to be dealing with a blister on his right hand, per Acee. The lefty will be considered day-to-day until more information on his status is revealed.
Castillo (forearm) was activated from the 60-day injured list Thursday.
He has not pitched in the majors this year and logged a 4.50 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 18:2 K:BB in eight innings during a rehab assignment that spanned stops at three levels of the minors. Castillo will pitch in mid-leverage spots down the stretch.
