  • Twins' Diego Castillo: Traded to Minnesota

    The Twins acquired Castillo from the Orioles on Friday in exchange for cash consideration, Bobby Nightengale of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Castillo will provide some quality infield organizational depth with Royce Lewis (quad) out, as he's capable of playing multiple infield positions as well as left field. The 26-year-old has now been in six different organizations since December, spending much of the offseason bouncing around via waivers. He will not be on the Twins' 40-man roster after being outrighted by the Orioles back in February.

  • Orioles' Diego Castillo: Assigned to Norfolk

    Castillo was assigned to Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday after clearing outright waivers, Jake Rill of MLB.com reports.

    The Orioles DFA'd Castillo on Sunday after claiming him off waivers two days prior. He has been with five different organizations this offseason but will stay in Baltimore's system for the time being. Castillo played 124 games for the Diamondbacks' Triple-A affiliate last season and finished with a .313/.431/.410 line, three home runs and 72 RBIs across 556 plate appearances.

  • Orioles' Diego Castillo: DFA'd by Baltimore

    Castillo was designated for assignment by the Orioles on Sunday.

    The 26-year-old was claimed off waivers by Baltimore on Friday, but his stay on the 40-man roster was brief. Castillo has already been with five different organizations this offseason, and a sixth could be added to the list with him being put through the waiver process once again.

  • Orioles' Diego Castillo: Nabbed off waivers by Baltimore

    The Orioles claimed Castillo off waivers from the Phillies on Friday.

    It marks the fifth organization Castillo has been in just this offseason, as he continues to bounce around via waivers. The 26-year-old utility player does have an option year remaining and seems likely to begin the year at Triple-A Norfolk, assuming he's still in the organization by Opening Day.

  • Phillies' Diego Castillo: DFA'd by Philly

    Castillo was designated for assignment by the Phillies on Tuesday.

    Castillo was claimed off waivers by Philly early last week but won't stick on the 40-man roster. The 26-year-old spent last season at the Triple-A level and had an .841 OPS in 124 contests. Kaleb Ort, who was claimed off waivers from the Marlins, will take Castillo's place on the Phillies' roster.

  • Phillies' Diego Castillo: Claimed by Philadelphia

    The Phillies claimed Castillo off waivers from the Yankees on Monday.

    Castillo has now been in four organizations this offseason as he continues to bounce around via waivers. The utility player hasn't found his footing at the major-league level to this point but slashed .313/.431/.410 in 556 plate appearances with Arizona's Triple-A affiliate in Reno last season. He'll compete for a reserve role in Philadelphia.

  • Yankees' Diego Castillo: Removed from 40-man roster

    Castillo was designated for assignment by the Yankees on Monday.

    The move frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for waiver claim Matt Gage. Castillo himself was a waiver claim of the Yankees earlier this month and could be on the move again. The 26-year-old has struggled during his major-league chances but slashed .313/.431/.410 in 556 plate appearances at the Triple-A level in 2023.

  • Yankees' Diego Castillo: Claimed by Yankees

    The Yankees claimed Castillo off waivers from the Mets on Friday.

    Castillo will join his third team in as many weeks after being DFA'd by both the Diamondbacks and Mets earlier in the offseason. The 26-year-old slashed .313/.431/.410 in 556 plate appearances with Arizona's Triple-A affiliate last season but has yet to find his footing in the majors. Jeter Downs was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

  • Mets' Diego Castillo: Dumped from 40-man roster

    Castillo was designated for assignment by the Mets on Friday, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

    Castillo was just claimed off waivers from Arizona a week ago but will make way for Sean Manaea, whose two-year deal with the Mets is now official. While Castillo has mostly struggled at the highest level, he had a .431 OBP at Triple-A last season, so a team with an opening on its 40-man roster may give him a shot.

  • Mets' Diego Castillo: Claimed by Mets

    The Mets claimed Castillo off waivers from Arizona on Friday, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

    Castillo was designated for assignment in December after Lourdes Gurriel re-signed with the D-backs, and Castillo will now move across the country to join New York. The 26-year-old made just one plate appearance in the majors last year while slashing .313/.431/.410 with 72 RBI in Triple-A. He'll likely begin the year at Triple-A Syracuse.

  • Diamondbacks' Diego Castillo: Loses 40-man roster spot

    Castillo was designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks on Friday, Alex Weiner of ArizonaSports.com reports.

    The move was made in order to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for the return of Lourdes Gurriel. Castillo received just one plate appearance with Arizona in 2023 but slashed .313/.431/.410 at Triple-A Reno. As a 26-year-old with defensive versatility, Castillo could draw some interest on waivers.

  • Diamondbacks' Diego Castillo: Optioned to Reno

    The Diamondbacks optioned Castillo to Triple-A Reno on Tuesday.

    A day after coming up from the minors, Castillo will head right back to Triple-A after going 0-for-1 during Monday's contest. Castillo holds an impressive .892 OPS in Reno this season, so there's a good chance he returns to Arizona later this summer if he continues to produce.

  • Diamondbacks' Diego Castillo: Back in majors

    The Diamondbacks recalled Castillo from Triple-A Reno on Monday.

    Josh Rojas was sent to Seattle as part of the Paul Sewald trade, so Castillo will join the major-league squad to make up for lost depth. The 25-year-old infielder has yet to play in a big-league game this season, but he's slashed .340/.442/.450 across 370 plate appearances in Triple-A.

  • Diamondbacks' Diego Castillo: Shifts to Triple-A

    Castillo was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Sunday.

    Castillo was acquired by the Diamondbacks in December and had a solid showing in spring training with a .270/.325/.459 slash line in 17 contests, but it wasn't enough to give him a spot on the Opening Day roster. The 25-year-old had a .633 OPS over 96 games in his first taste of MLB action with the Pirates last year.

  • Diamondbacks' Diego Castillo: Could return to lineup soon

    Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said Thursday that Castillo (neck) could return to Arizona's lineup within the next couple of days, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

    After colliding with Geraldo Perdomo (chest) while fielding a ground ball Wednesday against the Brewers, Castillo and Perdomo each were removed from the game. Luckily, both of their injuries seem to be minor and won't impact their status for Opening Day. Castillo is currently 9-for-33 at the plate this spring with two RBI and a stolen base.

  • Diamondbacks' Diego Castillo: Suffering from neck spasms

    Castillo was removed from Wednesday's spring game due to neck spasms, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Castillo and Geraldo Perdomo (chest) collided on the first play of the game and were removed after spending several moments on the ground. They walked off the field under their own power, but the extent of the injuries were not immediately known. The Diamondbacks later confirmed Perdomo suffered a chest contusion while Castillo is dealing with neck spasms.

  • Diamondbacks' Diego Castillo: Leaves game early

    Castillo was removed from Wednesday's game against Milwaukee after colliding with Geraldo Perdomo, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

    Luckily, both players were able to walk off the field without assistance, but the situation is still something to keep an eye on. The D-backs will take a look at the two infielders and should provide an update fairly soon.

  • Diamondbacks' Diego Castillo: Lands in the desert

    Castillo was acquired by the Diamondbacks from the Pirates on Friday in exchange for minor-league right-hander Scott Randall.

    Castillo had been designated for assignment earlier this week. The 25-year-old had an uneven rookie season in 2022 while splitting time between the Pirates and Triple-A Indianapolis, finishing with a .633 OPS and 11 homers with the big club. He's got an interesting bat and is versatile, though, making him a worthy acquisition by Arizona. Castillo will attempt to win a spot on the Diamondbacks' Opening Day roster.
