One of the Reds top prospects is getting a chance to start at the big league level. According to Bryan Price, Luis Castillo is getting the callup from AA, instead of guys in AAA and a DL return from Homer Bailey (at least for now). From CTR:
Castillo to start for Reds Friday— C. Trent Rosecrans (@ctrent) June 21, 2017
Castillo is 24 years old, and was the main return from the deal with the Marlins for Dan Straily in the offseason. He’s made 14 starts for the Blue Wahoos so far this year, where he’s gone 4-4 with a 2.58 ERA, but the stat that jumps off the page is that he has 81 strikeouts to only 13 walks so far this year.
The future is now.
