WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
The Pirates signed Castillo as a shortstop and he has the athleticism to stay there.  He grew some before signing and still probably needs to get stronger.

2021
DSL:  245/341/272, 147 AB, 2 2B, 1 3B, 17 BB, 30 K, 15-20 SB

Castillo did a good job of getting on base, but didn’t hit for any power.  He showed good speed on the bases.  He played second, third and short, appearing the most at second.  Javier Rivas got the most time at short.  Castillo’s error totals were low for that level.

Castillo did reasonably well in his debut.  He’ll be in the Gulf Coast League in 2022.
