Castano was optioned to Triple-A Jacksonville on Sunday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
The 26-year-old took the loss Saturday after surrendering three runs over four innings, and he'll now make his way to Triple-A. Castano has a 5.19 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 10:7 K:BB over 17.1 innings (four starts) for the Marlins this season.
Castano (0-2) took the loss Saturday as the Marlins were downed 6-2 by the Brewers, giving up three runs on six hits and two walks over four innings. He struck out five.
The southpaw embarrassingly gave up a solo shot to Adrian Houser in the fourth inning -- the second time this season he's been taken deep by the Milwaukee hurler. Castano has shown little sign of becoming an effective rotation option for Miami, posting a 5.19 ERA and 10:7 K:BB through 17.1 innings, but the team's lack of healthy alternatives will likely mean he gets more chances.
Castano will be recalled to start Saturday's game against the Brewers, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Castano has made three starts this season. His 4.73 ERA could be worse -- his 5.63 FIP and 5.68 xFIP indicate that it should have been worse. He's allowed far too much contact, striking out just 8.6 percent of opposing batters. A corresponding move has not yet been announced.
Castano was optioned to the Marlins' alternate training site Thursday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Castano was hit hard in Tuesday's loss to the Brewers and has posted a 4.72 ERA and 5:5 K:BB in 13.1 innings to begin the season. He'll now attempt to sort things out at the team's alternate training site. The Marlins haven't indicated who could take Castano's place in the rotation, but Nick Neidert could be an option to start in the near future.
Castano allowed three runs on six hits and a walk while striking out three over 3.1 innings and was not involved in the decision in a 5-4 loss to the Brewers on Tuesday.
Castano did give up six hits in just 3.1 innings Tuesday but most of his troubles came in the second, when he allowed back-to-back solo home runs to Adrian Houser and Tyrone Taylor. The 26-year-old has been extremely underwhelming to begin the year with a 4.72 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 5:5 K:BB over 13.1 innings. He'll be in search of his first win of the season his next time out.
Castano (0-1) took the loss Thursday against the Giants after allowing three runs on five hits and two walks while fanning two across five innings.
Castano got off to a rough start in this outing after allowing three runs in the first inning, and while he settled down afterward, the damage was already done. The left-hander has yet to pitch more than five innings in his first two outings of the campaign and has posted a 2:4 K:BB through 10 innings so far, so he's is unlikely to remain in the rotation in the long run. He posted a 3.03 ERA and 1.38 WHIP across 29.2 innings during seven appearances (six starts) in 2020, however, so he could be in line for a bounce-back performance sooner than later based on what he did last year.
Castano gave up one run on three hits and two walks across five innings Friday against the Giants. He didn't factor into the decision.
Castano limited the damage to just one run in his season debut, and while he didn't strike out anyone, he's never been a pitcher with high strikeout numbers, as evidenced by his 3.6 K/9 last season. The southpaw is unlikely to serve as a regular starter for the Marlins, but he delivered when called upon and notched decent numbers in 2020, posting a 3.03 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP across 29.2 innings during seven appearances (six starts).
Castano will start Friday's game against the Giants, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Castano was called up by the Marlins on Sunday, and he'll make his season debut in the series opener at home against San Francisco. The southpaw is unlikely to serve as a regular starter for Miami, but he posted a 3.03 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 29.2 innings during seven appearances (six starts) in 2020.
Castano was recalled from the Marlins' alternate training site Sunday.
The 26-year-old didn't make Miami's Opening Day roster but will join the big-league club to close the second weekend of the season. Castano made his major-league debut last season and had a 3.03 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 12:11 K:BB over 29.2 innings for the Marlins. He could be an option to serve as a bulk reliever behind opener John Curtiss in Sunday's game against the Mets.
Castano was optioned to Triple-A Jacksonville on Sunday.
Castano missed out on a spot in the Marlins' Opening Day bullpen, with the organization's decision to keep Rule 5 picks Paul Campbell and Zach Pop on the roster likely playing a major factor. The 26-year-old lefty will likely open the campaign as a member of Jacksonville's rotation.
Castano will get the start in the Marlins' Grapefruit League opener Sunday against the Astros, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
The southpaw isn't thought to be a candidate for a rotation job for the beginning of the regular season, but Castano is firmly in the mix for a long-relief or swingman role out of the bullpen. The 26-year-old posted a superficially strong 3.03 ERA over 29.2 innings last year in his big-league debut, but his 12:11 K:BB and 4.80 FIP offer a better reflection of his likely upside.
Castano was left off the Marlins' 28-man roster for the team's NL Wild Card Series with the Cubs that begins Wednesday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
Castano was the star of the Marlins' win over the Yankees in the regular-season finale, covering 6.1 shutout innings of long relief to capture his first big-league victory. The heavy workload he logged Sunday may have made the Marlins reluctant to include Castano in the bullpen for the three-game series, but since he's still a part of Miami's taxi squad, he would be eligible to rejoin the active roster later in the playoffs.
Castano (1-2) fired 6.1 scoreless innings Sunday as he earned the win against the Yankees. He allowed four hits and two walks while striking out two.
Castano entered Sunday's game in the third inning after Jose Urena (forearm) was hit by a comebacker. The southpaw held the Yankees scoreless in his long-relief role as he earned his first win of the season. Urena was ruled out for the remainder of the postseason, so Castano could pitch either as a starter or long reliever, especially if the Marlins advance to the NLDS.
Castano was recalled by the Marlins on Thursday.
Castano was sent down Saturday, but he'll return to the majors with four days remaining in the regular season. The southpaw has worked solely as a starter in his first taste of major-league action this year. The Marlins have their rotation set for the remainder of the regular season, so Castano will likely come out of the bullpen for the remainder of 2020.
The Marlins optioned Castano to their alternate training site Saturday.
Castano's demotion came one day after he served as the 29th man for the Marlins' doubleheader with the Nationals. He picked up his sixth start of the season in the second game of the twin bill, giving up three runs on five hits and no walks over 4.1 innings. Since Miami has no more doubleheaders on its schedule, Castano won't be eligible to pitch for the big club in the final week of the season unless the Marlins place a player on the injured list.
Castano allowed three runs on five hits and no walks while striking out one over 4.1 innings in Game 2 of Friday's doubleheader against the Nationals. He didn't factor into the decision.
Castano made his sixth start of the season during Friday's nightcap and was relatively effective. He gave up two runs in the first inning and allowed one more run in the fifth inning prior to his removal from the game. The southpaw now has a 3.86 ERA over 23.1 innings this season, but it's unclear whether he'll make another start in 2020.
Castano is listed as the Marlins' starter for the second game of Friday's doubleheader against the Nationals, but manager Don Mattingly indicated he could pitch in relief in the afternoon game, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Castano should feature at some point in one of Friday's games, though exactly when remains to be seen. If Castano is used in Game 1, expect Robert Dugger to get the call to start Game 2.
Castano will serve as the 29th man for Friday's doubleheader against the Nationals and is expected to start Game 2, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
The 26-year-old will rejoin the active roster with Miami set to play it's final twin bill of the season. Castano has a 3.32 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 9:9 K:BB through 19 innings this season and may return to the alternate site after the outing.
Castano was optioned to the alternate training site Sunday.
The 25-year-old surrendered one unearned run on five hits with one walk and one strikeout Friday, but he'll head to the alternate site before Sunday's twin bill. Castano gave up four earned runs in his first outing of the season, but he has a 1.84 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 8:5 K:BB in his past four appearances, so he could rejoin the Marlins for the closing stretch.
Castano didn't factor into the decision during a 5-3 win over the Phillies in the second game of Friday's doubleheader, allowing only one unearned run on five hits and a walk over 3.2 innings. He struck out one.
The rookie left-hander continues to minimize the damage against him despite a lot of traffic on the basepaths. Castano has a 3.32 ERA through his first 19 big-league innings, but a 1.58 WHIP and 9:9 K:BB highlight the tightrope he's been walking. The Marlins have three more doubleheaders coming up in the next nine days, so Castano should get another start during that stretch.
