2020 Fantasy Outlook
Castillo proved to be a jack-of-all-trades for the Rays in 2019, working as both a setup man and closer -- finishing with 17 holds and eight saves -- while also starting six games as an opener. He was dialed in for the first two months of the season before struggling in June and subsequently landing on the injured list with a shoulder issue. Castillo returned after the All-Star break and showed no ill effects, posting a 2.88 ERA and 1.17 WHIP over 34.1 second-half innings with a 43:10 K:BB and 0.8 HR/9 over that stretch. His skill set, which includes a fastball that touches triple digits with a swing-and-miss slider, is reminiscent of a closer; while Emilio Pagan was traded, the Rays used a committee at times and could do so again in 2020 as they still have a plethora of viable endgame options. Either way, Castillo should see high-leverage work and is a good bet to see at least some save chances. Read Past Outlooks
