The Padres pulled Castillo off his rehab assignment at Triple-A El Paso after he experienced renewed discomfort in his left forearm during his appearance Saturday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Castillo was evaluated by team doctors in San Diego on Monday, but it's unclear what the medical staff concluded after its examination. In any event, Castillo's shutdown will push back any potential activation from the 60-day injured list, which was initially expected to come later this week.
Castillo (forearm) allowed two runs on two hits while recording one strikeout in two-thirds of an inning Monday as he took the loss in a rehab appearance for High-A Lake Elsinore.
The 23-year-old's second rehab appearance of the season was less than ideal from a production standpoint, but it's promising to see him back on the mound. His first appearance went much more smoothly, as he allowed no hits and recorded two strikeouts in one inning pitched. Castillo likely has several weeks until he returns to the Padres, but he's on the right track.
Castillo (forearm) is close to beginning a minor-league rehab assignment, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Castillo has been on the shelf all season with a left flexor strain, but he's finally nearing a return to game action. That said, given the length of his absence, Castillo will likely need to make multiple rehab appearances before the Padres feel comfortable bringing him back.
Castillo was placed on the 60-day injured list with a left flexor strain Friday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Castillo was shut down with left forearm tightness at the start of the week, and the issue is apparently a significant one. He'll miss most of the first two months of the season, at minimum, though a specific return timetable has yet to be outlined.
Castillo was shut down with left forearm tightness Monday, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.
Castillo reportedly felt the issue at the end of his live batting practice session Sunday. Forearm issues are sometimes the initial diagnosis for what is eventually discovered to be a serious elbow injury, so the news is certainly not good for the southpaw. Whether or not this particular injury turns out to be a worst-case scenario remains to be seen.
Castillo (2-2) was the winning pitcher after firing a scoreless inning with a strikeout against the Reds on Thursday.
Starter Eric Lauer was only deployed for four innings, so the official scorer deemed Castillo's scoreless appearance worthy of the victory. Kirby Yates and Craig Stammen are firmly entrenched as the Padres' top late-inning options, but Castillo is making a strong case for a larger role next year after posting a 2.67 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 11.6 K.9 over 30.1 innings.
Castillo fired a clean inning with three strikeouts while picking up a hold in Thursday's victory over the Cubs.
The 22-year-old has fired 3.2 scoreless innings with two walks and four strikeouts since being activated from the disabled list July 28. The Padres didn't move veteran relievers Kirby Yates or Craig Stammen at the deadline, so Castillo will resume his role as a middle reliever. The rookie has looked impressive in the majors so far, posting a 2.20 ERA and 12.1 K/9 over 16.1 innings this season.
Castillo (hamstring) was activated from the 10-day disabled list ahead of Saturday's tilt with Arizona, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Castillo will return to action after landing on the disabled list July 7 with a right hamstring strain. In 13 games out of the bullpen this season, he's posted a 2.84 ERA and 0.79 WHIP with 18 strikeouts over 12.2 innings.
Castillo (hamstring) will begin his rehab assignment Saturday with Triple-A El Paso, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
The right-hander was sent to the 10-day disabled list July 7 with a right hamstring strain and will initiate his rehab assignment in the Pacific Coast League. Castillo sports a 2.84 ERA, 0.79 WHIP, 18 strikeouts and four walks in 12.2 innings during his ascension into a reliable relief role with the big club, and if all goes well, he should start building on those numbers as a Padre sometime in the coming week.
Castillo was placed on the 10-day disabled list retroactive to Friday with a right hamstring strain.
Castillo last pitched Wednesday and allowed one run with a walk and no hits allowed over two-thirds of an inning. The 22-year-old has been stellar out of the Padres bullpen since he was promoted in early June, recording a 2.84 ERA, 0.79 WHIP, 18 strikeouts and four walks across 12.2 innings.
Castillo fired two scoreless innings while giving up a hit and striking out three in Friday's 9-3 win over the Braves.
Castillo has been untouchable since getting the call to majors June 2, tossing six scoreless innings with 12 strikeouts over that span. The 22-year-old was equally impressive in the minors, posting a 2.31 ERA and a 13.5 K/9 over 23.1 innings across two levels prior to his promotion. The Friars have several proven options atop their bullpen, but Castillo could prove to be a solid ratio booster in middle relief if he keeps things rolling this year.
Castillo was recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Saturday.
He opened the year at Double-A and received a promotion recently to Triple-A, where he allowed one earned run in 7.1 innings while striking out seven over six appearances. Castillo could gradually earn mid-to-high-leverage opportunities, but he should initially work in the middle innings.
The Padres optioned Castillo to Triple-A El Paso on Sunday.
Castillo will move up a rung on the minor-league ladder after spending time with High-A Lake Elsinore and Double-A San Antonio a season ago, producing a 2.88 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 59:26 K:BB in 56.1 innings across the two levels. He'll have a good chance of making his Padres debut at some point later in the season after San Diego added the lefty to its 40-man roster in November.
