BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 An injury-plagued 2011 season didnít paint an accurate picture of reliever Fabio Castillo; a broken bone in his foot turned his power arsenal into a powerless arsenal. When healthy, Castillo has the stuff to pitch at the major league level, with a plus (to plus-plus) fastball and a sharp slider thrown with velocity and tilt. With a deep queue of quality relief arms eagerly awaiting opportunity, Castillo will need to quickly regain the form that made him a 40-man roster addition after the 2010 season or risk getting swallowed by the depth.
2011 A prototypical late-inning power arm with a mid-90s fastball and a bat-evading hard slider, Fabio Castillo was one of the first big international signings for the Rangers back in 2005 and finally harnessed his talent in 2010, earning a deserved promotion to Double-A and pitching capably in the Arizona Fall League.
