Thu Sep 913:18Diego Castillo Strikes Out Three In Relief Win
Seattle Mariners relief pitcher Diego Castillo earned the win in relief Wednesday, improving his record to 3-5 for the year. He faced four Houston Astros, allowing one hit and striking out three in an inning of work. Castillo now has three consecutive scoreless appearances with five strikeouts since returning from the injured list. He's not the primary closer in Seattle, but in leagues that value holds he is worth an add with his 2.77 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, and 62 strikeouts in 48 2/3 innings.
Sat Aug 2112:36Diego Castillo Placed On Injured List Saturday
Seattle Mariners relief pitcher Diego Castillo (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list on Saturday with right shoulder inflammation, according to Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times. Castillo had just blown a save opportunity in his last outing on Thursday, allowing two runs on one hit and one walk while striking out two over one inning of work. Over 10 appearances with Seattle since being acquired from Tampa Bay, Castillo has gone 0-1 with one save, a 3.86 ERA, 0.857 WHIP and 22.2 percent strikeout rate over 9 1/3 innings of work. To replace Castillo on the active roster, the Mariners recalled relief pitcher Robert Dugger from Triple-A Tacoma. At this point, Castillo only has value in SV/HLD formats, and in those leagues he should be stashed on the IL for now.

Fri Aug 2012:03Diego Castillo Melts Down Thursday
Seattle Mariners relief pitcher Diego Castillo blew a save Thursday night against the Texas Rangers. Seattle took a five-run lead into the ninth inning, but fellow reliever Anthony Misiewicz allowed three runs without recording an out, and then Castillo came on to complete the meltdown, allowing two runs on one hit and one walk. He struck out two batters. Castillo was already filling a set-up capacity most of the time for Seattle, and this won't help him cut into Paul Sewald's closer role. Castillo is only rosterable in holds leagues.
Wed Aug 1801:29Diego Castillo Pitches The Eighth Tuesday
Seattle Mariners relief pitcher Diego Castillo earned his fifth hold of the season Tuesday, allowing one hit and striking out one batter in his inning of work against the Texas Rangers. It was a solid outing for Castillo, but fantasy managers will be quick to note that Castillo pitched the eighth inning, setting up for apparent closer Paul Sewald. Castillo has been excellent since coming over from Tampa Bay, but it appears that he will not be the primary option for saves, having collected just one in his Seattle tenure. He's droppable in leagues that don't reward holds.
Sat Aug 1411:37Diego Castillo Unhittable Again
Seattle Mariners relief pitcher Diego Castillo turned in another scoreless performance Friday night, getting four outs against the Toronto Blue Jays, walking one and striking out one. Castillo has now allowed just one hit in eight appearances since being acquired from the Tampa Bay Rays, though he also has just one save in two opportunities. Castillo has largely been used in the seventh and eighth innings, leaving the ninth to Paul Sewald and Drew Steckenrider. Fantasy managers may want to look elsewhere for saves if they can.
Sun Aug 800:36Diego Castillo Pitches The Seventh Saturday
Seattle Mariners relief pitcher Diego Castillo is the clear primary closing option for the Mariners, but that doesn't mean he'll consistently get the ninth inning. After throwing the eighth on Friday, Castillo once again pitched Saturday, but this time in the seventh inning. He struck out two and did not allow a baserunner. Much like with Kendall Graveman before him, Castillo will be used in the highest leverage situations. That will leave Paul Sewald with some stray save opportunities, but Castillo is still the guy to add in most formats.
Wed Aug 401:52Diego Castillo Earns Save Against Former Team
Seattle Mariners relief pitcher Diego Castillo pitched against the Tampa Bay Rays for the first time since being traded away Tuesday, and he walked one and struck out one in an inning of work en route to his 15th save of the season. Castillo has enjoyed an excellent year, with a 2.82 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, and 50 strikeouts in 38 1/3 innings. With Paul Sewald entering before Castillo in the eighth inning, Castillo appears to be the locked-in closer for Seattle. That affords him plenty of fantasy value as the Mariners (and fantasy managers) seek to secure their position in the playoffs.
Sat Jul 3123:14Diego Castillo Blows First Save Chance For Seattle
Seattle Mariners relief pitcher Diego Castillo came on in the bottom of the 10th inning with a chance for his first save as a member of the Mariners Saturday, but instead he allowed a two-run home run to Jonah Heim that left him with a blown save and a loss. He did not record an out. It's his third blown save in 17 opportunities this season. Castillo has been quite good this year, with a 2.89 ERA and 0.99 WHIP in 39 games, but his value does take a hit coming over from Tampa Bay. He's in no danger of losing his job, however.
Fri Jul 3023:47Diego Castillo Throws Clean Inning In Mariners Debut
Seattle Mariners reliever Diego Castillo threw a perfect ninth inning in the 9-5 victory against the Texas Rangers. It was Castillo's first appearance with the Mariners after being acquired in a trade with the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday. The Mariners dealt closer Kendall Graveman on July 27, meaning Castillo should be the clear closer in Seattle. Castillo's been good this year, posting a 2.65 ERA with 14 saves in 16 chances. Fantasy managers should continue to roster and start Castillo with him possibly getting more save opportunities.
Thu Jul 2919:15Diego Castillo Traded To The Mariners
The Tampa Bay Rays have traded right-hander Diego Castillo to the Seattle Mariners in exchange for right-hander JT Chargois and third baseman Austin Shenton. Seattle recently traded closer Kendall Graveman and now acquired his replacement in Diego Castillo. The 27-year-old has been terrific as the Rays closer in 2021, converting 14-of-16 save chances to go along with a 2.72 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, and a 49:10 K: BB across 36 1/3 innings in 2021. He should immediately take over the closer role in Seattle. As for Tampa Bay, Pete ... [More]
