2014-12-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)Who has the best group of young starting pitching prospects?
(Ryan from Aurora)
For sheer volume of arms in the lists we have done so far, Toronto's stick out. Sanchez, Norris, and Hoffman are a pretty good start right there. From the reports and chatter, Jairo Labourt is a player I feel can really breakout and gain some good traction in 2015. Miguel Castro is a legit power arm that's realistically a 'pen guy, but can really bring it.

Reid-Foley, Osuna, Tirado, and add in Smoral from the OTR section. Volatility for sure overall, but busting at the seams with arms. (Top 10s Chat With Chris Mellen)
2014-11-04 18:00:00 (link to chat)What is your take on Blue Jays pitcher Miguel Castro? What is his extreme vs. realistic upside?
(Kevin from NY)
Castro is impressive, if very raw. I know our own Chris King has gotten some looks at him and has been impressive. The secondary stuff needs to come and the pitchability is developing -- though promising for his age -- and if it does, you could be looking at a #2/#3 type. Realistically, I'd say there's a decent chance he moves forward as a #4 starter or impact reliever, but the ceiling is considerable and he's early enough in his developmental path that you need to keep talking about and thinking about the ceiling, as opposed to just focusing on the realistic role. (Mark Anderson)
2014-09-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Did you by chance happen to see Miguel Castro when he was with Lansing? If so wanted to hear your thoughts
(Mike from Grand Rapids)
I didn't, but am familiar with the profile. Advanced teenage arm, worked 96-98 at the beginning of his last start, before settling in at 92-93 for the middle innings. Ch at 82-84, shows some promise. SL is 80-81, relatively slurvy at times, but effective. He should tighten up the secondary offerings, and has the promise of a middle of the rotation starter. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-08-29 12:00:00 (link to chat)Miguel Castro is 19, throws 100 and is in high A. What does he project as for the bluejays?
(Mikeleelop from Toronto)
An interesting young arm. Prospects aren't my beat, but obviously there's a wide range of possibilities when we're talking about a teenager with big-time arm strength.

We're a ways off from the final product there (or even the near-final product), however, Jason Parks tabbed him as a potential top-10 prospect for next year back before the season started. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-05-15 20:00:00 (link to chat)Pick up Clinton Hollon, Jairo Labourt or Miguel Castro over any of these injured upside pitchers: Tyrell Jenkins, Luis Heredia or Jose Martinez?
(traindoggah from maine)
I'd take a shot on Hollon at this point. Tough to take any of the injury struck pitchers over him. (Bret Sayre)
2014-02-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you know about Miguel Castro of the Blue Jays?
(Rusty Shackelford from Arlen, Texas)
His employer. The surname of at least one of his parents. The thing he's better at than anything else in the world (baseball). Quite a bit, actually. (Sam Miller)
