Player Outlook
Diego Castillo was scooped up by Arizona when Pittsburgh designated him for assignment prior to 2023 spring training and spent all but one day at Triple-A Reno. He appeared to change his approach with the new organization, increasing his walk rate to 17.6 BB% and posting a .431 on-base percentage, while playing left field, second base, shortstop and third base. Overall, it was his best year in the minors - MiLB.com's Organizational All-Star rankings rated him the system's best second baseman - but it wasn't enough for the 26-year-old to hold onto a spot on the 40-man roster. He was jettisoned to make room for Lourdes Gurriel, who re-signed with Arizona. A return to Reno had been expected, but Castillo was claimed off waivers by the Mets. He's another in a string of fringe additions New York made during the offseason. He could fill an infield depth role behind Pete Alonso, Jeff McNeil and Francisco Lindor.

  • Twins' Diego Castillo: Summoned from Triple-A

    The Twins selected Castillo's contract from Triple-A St. Paul on Sunday. He'll start at third base and bat seventh in the Twins' series finale in San Francisco. Castillo joined the Twins' 26-man active roster as replacement for infielder Jose Miranda, who was placed on the 10-day injured list with a low back strain. Over his 283 plate appearances with St. Paul this season, Castillo slashed a respectable .269/.375/.399 with five home runs and seven stolen bases while seeing action at all four infield spots as well as in right field. He'll likely see most of his starts against left-handed pitchers like the Giants' Blake Snell while he's up with the big club.

  • Twins' Diego Castillo: Promotion pending

    The Twins are expected to call up Castillo from Triple-A St. Paul on Sunday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Minnesota is currently dealing with several injuries in the infield and Castillo is expected to take the 26-man roster spot of the IL-bound Jose Miranda (back). Castillo logged just one big-league at-bat last season and is slashing .269/.375/.399 with five homers and seven stolen bases across 283 games with St. Paul. The 26-year-old should see work at third base and could mix in at second base and shortstop if needed. The Twins will need to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for Castillo.

  • Twins' Diego Castillo: Traded to Minnesota

    The Twins acquired Castillo from the Orioles on Friday in exchange for cash consideration, Bobby Nightengale of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Castillo will provide some quality infield organizational depth with Royce Lewis (quad) out, as he's capable of playing multiple infield positions as well as left field. The 26-year-old has now been in six different organizations since December, spending much of the offseason bouncing around via waivers. He will not be on the Twins' 40-man roster after being outrighted by the Orioles back in February.

  • Orioles' Diego Castillo: Assigned to Norfolk

    Castillo was assigned to Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday after clearing outright waivers, Jake Rill of MLB.com reports. The Orioles DFA'd Castillo on Sunday after claiming him off waivers two days prior. He has been with five different organizations this offseason but will stay in Baltimore's system for the time being. Castillo played 124 games for the Diamondbacks' Triple-A affiliate last season and finished with a .313/.431/.410 line, three home runs and 72 RBIs across 556 plate appearances.

  • Orioles' Diego Castillo: DFA'd by Baltimore

    Castillo was designated for assignment by the Orioles on Sunday. The 26-year-old was claimed off waivers by Baltimore on Friday, but his stay on the 40-man roster was brief. Castillo has already been with five different organizations this offseason, and a sixth could be added to the list with him being put through the waiver process once again.

  • Orioles' Diego Castillo: Nabbed off waivers by Baltimore

    The Orioles claimed Castillo off waivers from the Phillies on Friday. It marks the fifth organization Castillo has been in just this offseason, as he continues to bounce around via waivers. The 26-year-old utility player does have an option year remaining and seems likely to begin the year at Triple-A Norfolk, assuming he's still in the organization by Opening Day.

Kaleb Ort, who was claimed off waivers from the Marlins, will take Castillo's place on the Phillies' roster.

  • Phillies' Diego Castillo: Claimed by Philadelphia

    The Phillies claimed Castillo off waivers from the Yankees on Monday. Castillo has now been in four organizations this offseason as he continues to bounce around via waivers. The utility player hasn't found his footing at the major-league level to this point but slashed .313/.431/.410 in 556 plate appearances with Arizona's Triple-A affiliate in Reno last season. He'll compete for a reserve role in Philadelphia.

  • Yankees' Diego Castillo: Removed from 40-man roster

    Castillo was designated for assignment by the Yankees on Monday. The move frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for waiver claim Matt Gage. Castillo himself was a waiver claim of the Yankees earlier this month and could be on the move again. The 26-year-old has struggled during his major-league chances but slashed .313/.431/.410 in 556 plate appearances at the Triple-A level in 2023.

  • Yankees' Diego Castillo: Claimed by Yankees

    The Yankees claimed Castillo off waivers from the Mets on Friday. Castillo will join his third team in as many weeks after being DFA'd by both the Diamondbacks and Mets earlier in the offseason. The 26-year-old slashed .313/.431/.410 in 556 plate appearances with Arizona's Triple-A affiliate last season but has yet to find his footing in the majors. Jeter Downs was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

  • Diamondbacks' Diego Castillo: Back in majors

    The Diamondbacks recalled Castillo from Triple-A Reno on Monday. Josh Rojas was sent to Seattle as part of the Paul Sewald trade, so Castillo will join the major-league squad to make up for lost depth. The 25-year-old infielder has yet to play in a big-league game this season, but he's slashed .340/.442/.450 across 370 plate appearances in Triple-A.

  • Diamondbacks' Diego Castillo: Shifts to Triple-A

    Castillo was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Sunday. Castillo was acquired by the Diamondbacks in December and had a solid showing in spring training with a .270/.325/.459 slash line in 17 contests, but it wasn't enough to give him a spot on the Opening Day roster. The 25-year-old had a .633 OPS over 96 games in his first taste of MLB action with the Pirates last year.

  • Diamondbacks' Diego Castillo: Returns to lineup

    Castillo (neck) is back in the Diamondbacks' Cactus League lineup Friday versus the Rockies. He tweaked his neck when he collided with teammate Gerardo Perdomo (chest) on Wednesday, but both players are back in action Friday. Castillo is at second base and batting seventh.

  • Diamondbacks' Diego Castillo: Suffering from neck spasms

    Castillo was removed from Wednesday's spring game due to neck spasms, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports. Castillo and Geraldo Perdomo (chest) collided on the first play of the game and were removed after spending several moments on the ground. They walked off the field under their own power, but the extent of the injuries were not immediately known. The Diamondbacks later confirmed Perdomo suffered a chest contusion while Castillo is dealing with neck spasms.

  • Diamondbacks' Diego Castillo: Leaves game early

    Castillo was removed from Wednesday's game against Milwaukee after colliding with Geraldo Perdomo, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports. Luckily, both players were able to walk off the field without assistance, but the situation is still something to keep an eye on. The D-backs will take a look at the two infielders and should provide an update fairly soon.

  • Diamondbacks' Diego Castillo: Lands in the desert

    Castillo was acquired by the Diamondbacks from the Pirates on Friday in exchange for minor-league right-hander Scott Randall. Castillo had been designated for assignment earlier this week. The 25-year-old had an uneven rookie season in 2022 while splitting time between the Pirates and Triple-A Indianapolis, finishing with a .633 OPS and 11 homers with the big club. He's got an interesting bat and is versatile, though, making him a worthy acquisition by Arizona. Castillo will attempt to win a spot on the Diamondbacks' Opening Day roster.

  • Pirates' Diego Castillo: Designated for assignment

    Castillo was designated for assignment by the Pirates on Tuesday, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports. Castillo went back and forth between Pittsburgh and Triple-A Indianapolis in 2022, slashing .206/.251/.382 through 283 major-league plate appearances. The Pirates' decision to remove Castillo from the 40-man roster comes as a direct consequence of signing Austin Hedges.

  • Pirates' Diego Castillo: Two doubles, RBI in win

    Castillo went 2-for-4 with two doubles, an RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's win over the Cardinals. Castillo notched an RBI double in the bottom of the fourth inning before coming around to score on a Ji Hwan Bae groundout. He later added another double in next at-bat in the sixth frame. The two-hit performance was his first since July and he finished the four-game series with the Cardinals having gone 4-for-12 with three doubles, an RBI and two runs scored. Castillo will finish the 2022 season with a .206 average, 11 homers, 29 RBI, 28 runs and a stolen base over 262 at-bats in 96 contests with the Pirates.

  • Pirates' Diego Castillo: Rejoins Bucs

    The Pirates recalled Castillo from Triple-A Indianapolis on Monday. Castillo has been in the minors since the end of July, at which point he had slashed .201/.245/.368 through 257 big-league plate appearances in 2022. Those numbers, combined with his .689 OPS at Triple-A, don't inspire confidence in his rest-of-season outlook.

  • Pirates' Diego Castillo: Looks like reserve player

    Castillo will start in right field and bat fifth in Sunday's game against the Rockies. Though he's back in the lineup for the series finale while lefty Austin Gomber takes the bump for Colorado, the righty-hitting Castillo was on the bench in both of the previous two games, when the Rockies brought right-handers to the hill. As such, Castillo looks to be stuck in the short side of a platoon at the moment.
