Blue Jays' Anthony Castro: Demoted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays optioned Castro to Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday.

Castro tossed 28 pitches in his one-inning relief appearance Tuesday against the Yankees and was unlikely to be available for the next day or two, so Toronto opted to swap him out of the bullpen for Jacob Barnes, whose contract was selected from Triple-A. Unless he's called up from Buffalo as a replacement for an injured player later this week, Castro will conclude the regular season with a 4.74 ERA and 1.26 WHIP across 25 appearances with the big club.

Blue Jays' Anthony Castro: Recalled by Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday.

Castro spent a day on the big-league roster last weekend before being optioned. He owns a 5.06 ERA in 21.1 innings of relief this season. He'll take the bullpen spot that had belonged to Joakim Soria, who landed on the family medical emergency list.

Blue Jays' Anthony Castro: Returns to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays optioned Castro to Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday.

Castro allowed an unearned run in one inning of relief after being recalled Saturday. Now, he cedes his roster spot to a fresh arm in Trent Thornton.

Blue Jays' Anthony Castro: Called up Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo ahead of Saturday's nightcap against the Orioles, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.

Castro was sent to the minors after he was reinstated from the injured list at the beginning of September. He struck out six in two perfect innings across his two most recent appearances in Buffalo, and he'll provide an extra bullpen arm after the Blue Jays used four pitchers in Saturday's matinee.

Blue Jays' Anthony Castro: Activated, sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro (elbow) was activated from the 10-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday.

Castro landed on the shelf in mid-July with nerve irritation in his right elbow, and he'll head to Triple-A now that he's healthy. The 26-year-old has a 5.31 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 28:7 K:BB over 20.1 big-league innings this season and could rejoin the Blue Jays for bullpen depth down the stretch.

Blue Jays' Anthony Castro: Starting up rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays sent Castro (elbow) to Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday to begin a rehab assignment.

Castro was placed on the injured list Monday with right elbow irritation, but his move to Buffalo two days later for the rehab assignment implies that the Blue Jays don't expect him to miss much time. Before being deactivated due to the injury, Castro appeared in 22 games out of the Toronto bullpen, posting a 5.31 ERA and 1.33 WHIP.

Blue Jays' Anthony Castro: Unlikely to miss much time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro's ulnar nerve irritation isn't expected to cause him to miss an extended period, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Castro was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday, but that option was later reversed and changed to a trip to the injured list. That suggests that Castro could be sent down once healthy, though the Blue Jays' decision could depend on the status of their bullpen at that time.

Blue Jays' Anthony Castro: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday with ulnar nerve irritation in his right elbow.

Castro was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo during the All-Star break, but the move was reversed since he's actually dealing with an injury. It's uncertain how long the 26-year-old is expected to be sidelined.

Blue Jays' Anthony Castro: Sent down Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.

Castro joined the Blue Jays in early July and allowed three runs on five hits and a walk while striking out four in 2.1 innings during his most recent stint in the majors. The right-hander could return to the big-league club at some point during the second half of the season.

Blue Jays' Anthony Castro: Rejoins big-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Friday, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.

Castro returns to the majors just two days after being optioned. Recent struggles led to the righty's demotion, but Tyler Chatwood (neck) landing on the injured list necessitated Castro's joining the big-league bullpen once again. In his most recent appearance with the Blue Jays he struck out the side in a perfect inning, so perhaps he can build on that momentum and be a valuable contributor to a struggling relief core.

Blue Jays' Anthony Castro: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday.

After a very strong start to the campaign, a trio of shaky June appearances rose his ERA to 4.50. With the Blue Jays adding the newly acquired Adam Cimber to the roster Wednesday, Castro finds himself without a spot on the 26-man roster for the time being. The right-hander should be a top candidate to rejoin the big club should the Blue Jays become in need of another reliever.

Blue Jays' Anthony Castro: Grabs win in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro (1-1) picked up the win in Wednesday's 6-5 victory over the Marlins, walking one in a scoreless ninth inning.

The right-hander entered the game with the Jays down 5-3, and Castro got rewarded for a scoreless appearance when his offense staged a rally in the bottom of the ninth. The 26-year-old isn't seeing many high-leverage opportunities and has only a one-out save and zero holds through 10 appearances, but his 1.74 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 12:4 K:BB in 10.1 innings could earn him a more important role.

Blue Jays' Anthony Castro: Takes first loss Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro (0-1) allowed one earned run on two hits and a walk while striking out one in two-thirds of an inning, taking the loss Saturday against the Rays.

Castro made his first appearance since April 27, coming off the injured list from a forearm injury. He allowed a leadoff single to Randy Arozarena, who eventually scored the winning run later in the eighth inning. It was Castro's first run allowed in 2021. The 26-year-old only had one MLB inning under his belt prior to this season. He has a 1.13 ERA and 0.88 WHIP with 10 strikeouts in eight innings.

Blue Jays' Anthony Castro: Returns from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro (forearm) was activated from the 10-day injured list Saturday, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports.

The right-hander has been out since late April with a forearm strain, but he'll rejoin Toronto's bullpen Saturday. Castro has a 9:1 K:BB with only three hits allowed through 7.1 scoreless innings this season.

Blue Jays' Anthony Castro: Nearing return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blue Jays bullpen coach Pete Walker said Thursday that Castro (forearm) is "real close" to being activated from the injured list, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Castro has been on the injured list since May 2, but he's been throwing off a mound recently. Walker said that Castro could be activated "any day." The right-hander made six relief appearances to begin the season and posted a 0.55 WHIP and 9:1 K:BB in 7.1 scoreless innings.

Blue Jays' Anthony Castro: Another bullpen on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro (forearm) hopes to throw another bullpen session this weekend, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

The 26-year-old recently threw a bullpen session and was still experiencing some tightness, but it apparently isn't much of a concern considering he could retake the mound this weekend. Castro landed on the injured list May 2 with a strained right forearm and is already eligible to be activated, though it's unclear when he's expected to rejoin the active roster.

Blue Jays' Anthony Castro: Not yet at 100 percent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro (forearm) has thrown a bullpen session but isn't yet at 100 percent, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Castro has been on the injured list since Sunday due to a right forearm strain, and he didn't feel fully healthy when he recently threw a bullpen session. The right-hander is eligible to return as early as Wednesday, but he'll throw another bullpen in the coming days before the Blue Jays determine his status.

Blue Jays' Anthony Castro: Shut down with forearm strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toronto placed Castro on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a right forearm strain.

The Blue Jays haven't elaborated on the severity of Castro's forearm strain, but this type of injury typically necessitates a recovery period beyond the 10-day minimum. The 26-year-old had been one of the Blue Jays' more reliable bullpen arms this season, recording a save and striking out nine over 7.1 scoreless innings while permitting only two hits and one walk.

Blue Jays' Anthony Castro: Notches first career save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro retired the only batter he faced Wednesday to earn the save against the Red Sox.

After Rafael Dolis had faced the heart of the Boston order in the eighth inning, southpaw Tim Mayza began the ninth with the Blue Jays staked to a three-run lead, but the team opted to go to a right-hander with a runner aboard and the dangerous J.D. Martinez up to bat after Mayza recorded two outs. Manager Charlie Montoyo decided Castro was his best remaining option, and the unseasoned reliever came through by getting Martinez to ground out to end the game. The appearance was Castro's fifth of his MLB career and accounted for his first save opportunity. The 26-year-old has pitched five scoreless innings so far this season, and while Dolis has the most experience in high-leverage spots among Toronto's current bullpen arms, it's not out of the question that Castro could get more save opportunities with both Julian Merryweather (oblique) and Jordan Romano (elbow) currently on the shelf.

Blue Jays' Anthony Castro: Activated by Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro's contract was selected by the Blue Jays on Wednesday, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

Castro was unable to break camp with Toronto this year, but he'll join the major-league bullpen after Julian Merryweather (oblique) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday. Castro should serve as a low-leverage reliever during his time with the big-league club.
