Fantasy Baseball: Luis Castillo traded, DFS plays and more for Monday
Luis Castillo traded to SeattleAfter missing all of April (which is typically his worst month of the season), Castillo was good in May (3.38 ERA), slightly better in June (3.26 ERA) and terrific in July (1.93 ERA). Castillo’s splits have fantasy managers dreaming of how well he could fare now that he pitches for a team with an offense-suppressing venue. Castillo should be valued as a top-20 starter for the remainder of the season. The biggest fantasy loser of the Castillo trade is likely rookie righty, George Kirby. His IL stay is expected to be a short one, which is welcome news for fantasy managers and Mariners fans.wftv.com
