RHP ALVARO CASTILLO-Perfect Game report
6-6/195, R/R, 9/26/95, Santo Domingo, DR

Trainer: Fausto “Chiki” Mejia
PG Grade: 8.5

Castillo passes the eye test very well, with a big athletic body that is probably nowhere close to filling out yet. He throws a heavy sinking fastball at 81-84 mph, but more impressively he throws a true curveball with good spin and some depth in the 73-76 mph range, and he also throws a 74 mph changeup. Castillo’s delivery has some pause and drift in it and he hasn’t started growing into his big body’s coordination. Like many oversized pitchers, he might mature a year or two later in his mechanics than his smaller peers would. He’s an interesting follow who isn’t close to showing the talent he might have down the road.
