  • Diamondbacks' Miguel Castro: Stumbles in ninth inning

    Castro (3-2) allowed four runs on two hits and two walks Sunday. He recorded two outs (one strikeout) while blowing a save chance and taking the loss against Atlanta.

    Castro entered the ninth inning with a one-run lead and coughed up a go-ahead grand slam. He was riding a 10.1-inning scoreless streak since May 7 when he gave up a homer and blew a save against Washington. The 28-year-old's ERA spiked to 3.46 with a 23:10 K:BB through 26 frames.

  • Diamondbacks' Miguel Castro: Works around traffic for save

    Castro allowed two hits in a scoreless inning to earn the save in Friday's 3-2 win over Atlanta.

    Castro put two of the first three batters aboard in the ninth inning, but got a flyout from Ozzie Albies and a groundout from Orlando Arcia to avoid disaster. This was Castro's 11th straight scoreless appearance, a span in which he's picked up five of his six saves this year while adding two holds and two wins. The right-hander continues to get late-inning work as a result of his strong pitching -- he's at a 2.13 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 22:8 K:BB through 25.1 innings this year, bringing stability to the back end of Arizona's bullpen. Andrew Chafin remains Castro's primary competition for save chances in what's become a two-man committee.

  • Diamondbacks' Miguel Castro: Earns fifth save

    Castro allowed one hit in a scoreless ninth inning against Boston on Sunday. He struck out two and picked up a save.

    Castro coughed up a single but still closed out the 4-2 win with ease. He's converted five of his six save chances this season, including four straight dating back to May 12. During that span, Castro has fired 8.1 shutout frames, lowering his season ERA to 2.22 with a 22:8 K:BB.

  • Diamondbacks' Miguel Castro: Unavailable for save

    Castro was not used for a save opportunity in Wednesday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to Philadelphia.

    None of Arizona's most trusted bullpen arms were available due to heavy usage this week. Castro had pitched three of the last four days, as had Andrew Chafin and Kyle Nelson. With a 5-3 lead entering the ninth inning, manager Torey Lovullo tried to get by with Jose Ruiz, but he allowed a two-run home run with two outs that sent the game into an extra frame.

  • Diamondbacks' Miguel Castro: Notches fifth save

    Castro tossed a perfect ninth inning Tuesday to record his fifth save of the season in a 4-3 win over the Phillies.

    He didn't walk or strike out a batter, but Castro instead generated weak contact as he retired the Phillies' 6-7-8 hitters on only 11 pitches (seven strikes.) The right-hander has picked up three of the Diamondbacks' last four saves as the team tries to shift Andrew Chafin into a fireman role -- the lefty got the first two outs of the eighth inning while facing the likes of Trea Turner and Bryce Harper. On the season, Castro sports a 2.42 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 20:8 K:BB through 22.1 innings.

  • Diamondbacks' Miguel Castro: Fans three in fourth save

    Castro picked up the save Saturday against the Pirates. He allowed one walk while striking out three over one scoreless inning.

    Castro set a season high in strikeouts Saturday, sending Ji Hwan Bae, Connor Joe and Jason Delay back to the dugout after walking Rodolfo Castro to open up the ninth inning. After starting out the season firmly behind Andrew Chafin as the Diamondbacks' primary closer, Castro has received back-to-back save opportunities and converted each of them without allowing a single hit or run. Fantasy managers should keep an eye on the Diamondbacks' use of Chafin and Castro moving forward, in case one of the two begins to pull away with the closing job.

  • Diamondbacks' Miguel Castro: Converts third save

    Castro picked up the save Wednesday against the Athletics. He struck out one batter in a clean ninth inning.

    Castro was called on in the ninth inning after Andrew Chafin pitched the previous two days, and he delivered a stress-free save, needing just 11 pitches to retire the side in order. Primarily used in a setup role, Castro has been excellent in 2023 with a 2.75 ERA and 0.97 WHIP.

  • Diamondbacks' Miguel Castro: Credited with win

    Castro (2-1) earned the win over San Francisco on Sunday. He struck out two over a scoreless ninth inning.

    Castro worked the ninth inning in his last two appearances, picking up a save and a win. After he was lit up for three runs a week ago while pitching on a third consecutive day -- his 16th outing in 34 games -- manager Torey Lovullo tweaked bullpen rotations to keep arms fresh. Castro and Andrew Chafin remain in high-leverage roles, including important ninth-inning situations.

  • Diamondbacks' Miguel Castro: Closes out win

    Castro allowed one hit and struck out one over a scoreless two-thirds of an inning to record the save in Friday's 7-5 win over the Giants.

    Castro got the call from the bullpen after Andrew Chafin got the first out of the ninth inning. It was Castro's second save of the season. Chafin has been the primary closer, but manager Torey Lovullo had him enter the eighth inning against a string of lefty batters. The sequence hinted at changes Lovullo mused about with Theo Mackie of the Arizona Republic. In reaction to a string of adverse relief work, the manager talked about shifting roles and avoiding the overuse of his most trusted arms, like Chafin.

  • Diamondbacks' Miguel Castro: Records first save

    Castro recorded his first save of the season Tuesday, allowing one walk in a scoreless ninth inning against the Cardinals.

    Castro entered the game to protect an 8-7 lead after Andrew Chafin gave up three runs at the beginning of the ninth inning. The 28-year-old bounced back from a one-out walk, retiring Dylan Carlson to end the game and record his first save of the year. With a 2.25 ERA and 1.00 WHIP over eight innings, Castro is expected to continue sharing high-leverage opportunities late in games.

  • Diamondbacks' Miguel Castro: Dinged for first time

    Castro allowed two runs on two hits and one walk over two-thirds of an inning in Tuesday's 7-1 loss to the Brewers.

    Castro entered with Arizona trailing 1-0 and allowed a pair of inherited runners to score, then two of his own. The outing was the first blemish in four appearances for the right-hander, who typically works in the final third of close games.
