BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Sometimes players make it to the majors before their time, and the results aren't pretty. Castillo was a converted shortstop who was on the Cubs' major-league roster more because of the way the Rule 5 draft works than because of his ability to contribute, or even the Cubs' need for pitching. A left groin strain might have actually helped him stick with the team, as it used up some days without requiring him to use a big-league roster spot. Castillo has thrown exactly three innings above High-A and below the majors, so, having secured his rights by keeping him in Chicago all year, the Cubs will likely dispatch him to the farm for some much-needed experience.
