  • Diamondbacks' Miguel Castro: Back from paternity list

    The Diamondbacks reinstated Castro (personal) from the paternity list Monday.

    Arizona optioned right-hander Slade Cecconi to Triple-A Reno to clear room on the 28-man active roster for Castro, who spent the maximum three days away from the team following the birth of his child. Castro, who has posted a 1.64 ERA and 1.27 WHIP over his last 14 appearances, should step back into a middle relief or setup role for the final week of the regular season.

  • Diamondbacks' Miguel Castro: Placed on paternity leave

  • Diamondbacks' Miguel Castro: Spoils Pfaadt's outing

    Castro (5-6) took the loss Friday against San Diego. He allowed four runs on three hits over one-third of an inning.

    Castro entered a scoreless tie after Brandon Pfaadt fired seven scoreless innings of one-hit ball. He hit a batter with his first pitch then allowed a pair of singles and left after Fernando Tatis' home run made it 4-0. It was the second straight outing in which Castro allowed four runs.

  • Diamondbacks' Miguel Castro: Blows lead, takes loss

    Castro (5-4) was tagged with Thursday's loss to Atlanta. He allowed three runs on two hits and one walk over two-thirds of an inning.

    Castro, who began the eighth inning protecting a 5-3 lead, sandwiched a pair of outs around a double before getting into trouble. He walked Ozzie Albies before Austin Riley took him deep for a three-run home run. Although Castro's 3.4 BB/9 is an improvement over previous seasons, it's still a high number and the right-hander walked a delicate line before Thursday's costly free pass. A one-time part of the closer picture, Castro has since returned to a middle-relief role, one in which he's had recent success. Castro entered the game with a 1.50 ERA over his previous 12 innings.

  • Diamondbacks' Miguel Castro: Records seventh save

    Castro picked up the save in Monday's 9-8 win over the Phillies. He allowed one run on two hits and no walks while striking out one over one inning.

    Castro's seventh save of the season wasn't particularly smooth, but the Diamondbacks' two-run lead heading into the ninth inning provided him just enough cushion. The right-hander has had a shaky start to June, giving up six runs across three innings. With the Diamondbacks still taking a closer-by-committee approach at the back end of their bullpen, fantasy managers can't count on Castro continuing to get consistent save opportunities if he keeps giving up runs.

  • 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.
