Scouting Report
: Thin Venezuelan righty with a developing frame. Castillo features a fastball, curveball, and changeup. He pitches from a 3/4 arm slot with quick downward snap motion. Fastball sits between 90-92 mph, with pretty good life that he can maintain when pitching. Has reached 94 mph on occasion. Leaves his fastball up in the zone far too much, resulting in a lot of hard contact. Low-to-mid-70s curveball that shows a nice break on occasion, but not consistently. Changeup, which is his outpitch, goes about 82-84 mph, with very good deception. Command needs work. Still doesn't look all that relaxed on the mound.
