Swing, And A Miss - Mariners win Castillo Sweepstakes

By SSTN Admin

July 30, 2022



"The first major starting pitching trade has been made, as the Mariners and Reds announced a deal sending two-time All-Star Luis Castilloto Seattle. In exchange, the Reds bring back four prospects — highly-regarded infielders Noelvi Marteand Edwin Arroyo and right-handers Levi Stoudtand Andrew Moore."


"With Castillo off the market, Mahle and A’s hurler Frankie Montas become the top two rotation trade candidates, in addition to a handful of high-impact arms who might be available despite having control windows extending beyond 2023. Teams like the Yankees, Cardinals, Rangers and Twins are known to be in the market for rotation help. Mark Feinsand of tweets that 12 teams were in contact with the Reds about Castillo and suggests the Yankees’ offer was close to the quality of Seattle’s."


  • With the Yankees losing out of the top pitcher available, do they double down on Juan Soto?

  • Is Ohtani really available?

  • Do the Yankees have what it takes to get a top pitcher?

  • Will the wins against Kansas City make the Yankees feel they have a better team than they might actually have and make them feel a trade is less important?

STAY TUNED! These next few days could be a wild ride.

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
