Rockies signed RHP Simon Castro to a minor league contract.

Castro made it up to the majors briefly with the White Sox last season but spent most of the year at Triple-A, posting a 5.83 ERA and 1.41 WHIP. He's merely organizational depth.

White Sox sent RHP Simon Castro outright to Triple-A Charlotte.

Castro allowed two runs over 6 2/3 relief frames during his time with the White Sox this season. The 25-year-old will surely get invited to big league camp in spring training.

White Sox recalled RHP Simon Castro from Triple-A Charlotte.

Castro will replace Brian Omogrosso on the active roster. The 25-year-old right-hander has 4.92 ERA over 16 appearances (12 starts) at the Triple-A level this season and will serve in a long relief role.

White Sox acquired RHP Simon Castro and LHP Pedro Hernandez from the Padres for OF Carlos Quentin.

Castro (6-5, 210), is the higher regarded prospect of the two, but posted a 5.63 ERA and 1.44 WHIP over 22 appearances between Double-A San Antonio and Triple-A Tucson. Neither player is listed among the Padres’ top 10 prospects. However, considering the White Sox's farm system is barren of talent, they should rank much higher within their organization.

Padres reassigned RHP Simon Castro to minor league camp.

He was one of 11 prospects sent out, none of whom were surprise cuts. The Padres' top pitching prospect before Casey Kelly arrived via trade, Castro gave up three runs in three innings this spring. First baseman Anthony Rizzo was also among those given the pink slip. Both players are expected to begin the season at Triple-A.

Padres purchased the contract of RHP Simon Castro from Triple-A Portland.

The team's top pitching prospect, Castro posted a 3.28 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 113/42 K/BB ratio over 140 innings between Double- and Triple-A this past season. The 22-year-old is expected to get a look in spring training but is likely to begin 2011 back at Triple-A.

The San Diego Union-Tribune expects top prospect RHP Simon Castro to get a "long look" in spring training but to ultimately begin the season at Triple-A.

The 22-year-old posted a 3.28 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 113/42 K/BB ratio over 140 innings between Double- and Triple-A this past season (just two starts coming at Triple-A). Armed with a fastball that touches the mid-90s and a plus slider, Castro has significant upside, especially with PETCO as his home park. The Dominican native will be someone to keep an eye on this spring.

Padres prospect right-hander Simon Castro tossed five shutout innings for Double-A San Antonio on Friday night.

Castro, who turned 22 on Friday, was making his Double-A debut. Armed with his plus-fastball, he struck out five and walked two in the effort. The 6-foot-5 right-hander emerged as the organization's top pitching prospect last season with Class A Fort Wayne, going 10-6 with a 3.33 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 157/37 K/BB ratio in 140 1/3 innings.
