Jose Castillo
24-Year-Old PitcherRP
San Diego Padres
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Castillo pitched 7.2 innings during the 2019 season around two major injuries. He missed most of the year with a left forearm flexor strain, only to come back from that and tear a tendon in his pitching hand. When he was healthy in 2018, Castillo was absolute death to lefties (.133/.220/.133) and held his own very well against righties (.189/.270/.333) over 38.1 innings of work. The San Diego bullpen has become more crowded over the past 12 months, but Castillo's ability to handle lefties and righties should serve him well as long as his pitching arm is in good shape. While he may be best utilized as a lefty specialist in 2020, especially with Drew Pomeranz now on the roster to provide a late-inning lefty, the new usage rules could give Castillo a jump in production and perhaps some value in deep NL-only leagues as a ratios play who can vulture the occasional win.
