BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 Lefty reliever Alberto Castillo pitched well for two Triple-A affiliates, but didn't get a very long look in the majors. Big-league lefties have hit .296/.377/.519 against him in 123 PA over the course of his career, which helps explain why.
2011 Situational southpaw Alberto Castillo allowed left-handed hitters to bat .391/.417/.957 against him, which made him about as useful as a gelding at a stud farm.
2010 Alberto Castillo has held left-handed hitters to a .191 EqA over the last two years, better than Tim Lincecum; right-handers cranked at a .289 clip, worse than Russ Ortiz.
2009 A Cuban refugee who'd been playing in the Atlantic League prior to last season, Alberto Castillo is a good LOOGY candidate.
