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.

Blue Jays' Anthony Castro: Making push for bullpen spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro struck out one in a scoreless eighth inning during Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Yankees.

The 25-year-old right-hander came into camp as a long shot to win a spot on the 26-man roster after being claimed on waivers from the Tigers in December, but Castro has impressed with a 1.23 ERA and 13:1 K:BB through 7.1 spring innings. With Kirby Yates (elbow) and Nate Pearson (groin) set to open the season on IR and other arms battling injuries as well, there may be room for Castro to sneak onto the Opening Day roster in a low-leverage role.

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

Castro cleared waivers Thursday and was outrighted to Triple-A Buffalo, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Castro was claimed off waivers by Toronto in December but won't wind up making it to spring training as part of the team's big-league roster. The 25-year-old righty has just one big-league appearance to his name, allowing two runs in one inning for the Tigers last season.

Blue Jays' Anthony Castro: DFA'd by Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Thursday.

Castro was claimed off waivers by Toronto in early December, but he'll be cast off the 40-man roster to make room for right-hander Tyler Chatwood. He could still compete for a bullpen role during spring training, but he'll likely begin the 2021 season in the minors.

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

Castro was claimed off waivers by the Blue Jays on Monday.

Castro made his MLB debut last season with the Tigers, but he logged just one inning in one appearance. He should compete for a spot in Toronto's bullpen during spring training but will likely open the year at Triple-A.

Tigers' Anthony Castro: Sent to alternate training site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro was optioned to Detroit's alternate training site following Monday's game against the White Sox.

Castro was recalled Saturday, but he won't enter a ballgame before heading back to the team's alternate training site. He's appeared in just one contest this season, allowing two runs on a hit and a walk while striking out one over one inning.

Tigers' Anthony Castro: Recalled Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro was recalled from the Tigers' alternate training site Saturday after Ivan Nova (tricep) was put on the 10-day injured list.

Castro was optioned to the Tigers' alternate training site earlier this month and will already be making his return to the big-league roster. It's unclear as to why the Tigers opted to recall Castro, who is a reliever rather than a starter like Dario Agrazal (forearm) or Casey Mize, who can fill the empty gap in the rotation. Regardless, Castro's time on the active big-league roster shouldn't last very long.

Tigers' Anthony Castro: Sent down to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers optioned Castro to their alternate training site Tuesday.

Though Detroit is off until the weekend after its four-game series with St. Louis was postponed, the Tigers will still have to reduce their active roster from 30 to 28 men prior to Friday's series opener in Pittsburgh. As a low-leverage reliever with minor-league options remaining, Castro was a logical choice to lose his spot on the active roster. The 25-year-old right-hander made his MLB debut July 27 against the Royals, giving up two runs on one hit and one walk in a one-inning appearance.

Tigers' Anthony Castro: Recalled by Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro was called up by the Tigers on Monday.

Castro was left off the Tigers' initial 30-man roster, but he'll join the major-league pitching staff after Dario Agrazal (forearm) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move Monday. The right-hander hasn't pitched above the Double-A level, where he posted a 4.40 ERA and 116:65 K:BB over 102.1 innings last season.

Tigers' Anthony Castro: Left off roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro was not included on the Tigers' 30-man Opening Day roster.

Castro is on the 40-man roster and participated in summer camp, but considering he was optioned to Double-A before play was suspended in March, he didn't seem likely to make the Opening Day roster. The 25-year-old will turn his attention toward development this season at the team's alternate training site.

Tigers' Anthony Castro: Among 30 pitchers in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro is among 30 pitchers who will be a part of the Tigers' 60-man player pool this season.

Castro was optioned to Double-A Erie back in March, but with the minor-league season officially canceled, the 25-year-old will now technically work at the MLB level, though he won't necessarily see game action in the majors this year. Castro posted a 4.40 ERA and 116 strikeouts over 102.1 innings at Double-A last season.

Tigers' Anthony Castro: Optioned to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro was optioned to Double-A Erie on Tuesday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

The 24-year-old righty had a 4.40 ERA over 102.1 innings at Double-A last season. He is on the 40-man roster but is one of the least interesting of the Tigers' upper-level pitching prospects, as he profiles best as a middle reliever long term.

Tigers' Anthony Castro: Contract selected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro was added to the Tigers' 40-man roster on Wednesday, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

This protects him from the Rule 5 draft. Castro, a 24-year-old righty, has logged 112.1 innings at Double-A over the past two seasons, and he could report to Triple-A this year if he looks solid in spring training. Long term, he profiles as a fastball/slider reliever, but the Tigers haven't pulled the plug on developing him as a starter just yet.

Tigers' Anthony Castro: Inks deal with Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro signed a minor-league contract with the Tigers on Thursday.

Castro settled in with Double-A Erie last season, recording a 4.40 ERA with a 116:65 K:BB over 102.1 innings. While his numbers don't necessarily turn heads, they signal that the 24-year-old is progressing in the minors, although it could be several years before he's in the discussion for a spot in the majors.

Tigers' Anthony Castro: Signs deal with Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro inked a minor-league contract with Detroit on Friday, Baseball-Rosters reports.

The Tigers decided to re-sign Castro after a ho-hum minor-league campaign. He posted a 2.93 ERA with 101 strikeouts over 116 innings with High A Lakeland and advanced to Double-A Erie where he struggled to an 8.10 ERA, although the sample size was relatively small (10 innings).
