Toronto wants Castillo to be the key to a trade hiatus
It is known that the Toronto Blue Jays, which have many gaps in starting pitchers, are still interested in the trade of Luis Castillo (Cincinnati Reds), which they have been watching since the season.
“Castillo has been Toronto’s trade target since last winter,” said Bob Nightingale, a reporter for USA Today. It’s not surprising that Toronto, which has deep concerns about starting, is still interested in him,” he said.
Castillo started about a month late this season with a shoulder injury, but he is still pitching well. He started all 12 games, recording 3 wins, 4 losses, and ERA 2.9274 strikeouts. He was recognized for his performance and was named the only All-Star player on the team 코인파워볼사이트
Currently, Alec Manoa is doing well in Toronto’s starting lineup. However, Ryu Hyun-jin has left due to Tommy John surgery, and Yusei Kikuchi, who was suffering from a slump, was also on the injured list due to a neck injury. On top of that, Kevin Gausman is also skipping the starting rotation after being hit by a ball.
Fortunately, substitute starter Ross Stripling continues to pitch well, but he is considered the first starter and Jose Berrios is below expectations with a 5.44 ERA.
If Castillo joins the Toronto starting lineup, it will be of great help. “I expect Toronto to be the most aggressive team that wants to start in the trade market,” Nightingale said, adding that there is a high possibility of a Castillo trade.
However, Toronto is not the only team that wants Castillo. The New York Yankees have also expressed their interest in him, and the New York Mets also want to reinforce their starting lineup, so they want Castillo, the top sale of the starting trade. With Castillo expected to move the team, attention is being paid to whether Toronto will be able to recruit the starter that it has so longed for
