David Reiffer:

Four-Seam Fastball– Castro fires a low-to-mid-90s four-seamer from a low 3/4 arm slot. The offering features good movement away from left-handed hitters and is a plus pitch.

Slider – The slider is above average at times with sharp late downward movement. Castro lives on the heater/slider combo.

Change-up – The change needs work and, according to reports, needs refining due to a hesitation in his delivery that may tip-off more advanced hitting.

Two-Seam Fastball – Scouts report that this pitch has some movement too but not as much as the four-seamer and with less downward movement. Tops out in the low-90s.

Reiffer says if Don Cooper can straighten out Castro’s command problems, Castro can become a member of the starting rotation.
