Yankees Reportedly Pursuing Reds Ace Luis Castillo

12 Up

If the Yankees have their heart set on acquiring a young, controllable starting pitcher, there aren't many available on the market today that are better than Cincinnati Reds starter Luis Castillo.

As the wait for Luis Severino to return from injury becomes longer and longer, the Yankees have put some feelers out on Castillo, who is under contract with the Reds until 2023. This would be something:

Another former Miami Marlin prospect who was traded for Dan Straily, Castillo has been a revelation for the pitching-starved Reds in his age-26 season, going 7-2 with a 2.56 ERA. While his 49 walks lead the National League, he is allowing an NL-best 5.7 hits per nine innings.
