Padres trading for pitcher Luis Castillo

The Padres reportedly have been eyeing Cincinnati Reds pitcher Luis Castillo, according to MLB insider Jon Heyman. Though the Padres aren’t lacking in talent on the mound, they could benefit from trading for Castillo.

This season, Castillo has an ERA of 2.77, BAA of .199 and WHIP of 1.08.

Current Padres pitchers Joe Musgrove and Yu Darvish are two that shouldn’t be considered for trade, but there are some pitchers in the rotation underperforming this season that may be enticing in a trade package with some prospects.

Castillo is also being looked at by other teams, reportedly the Minnesota Twins and New York Mets. If the Padres can manage to land him, they’d be on the right path to overtaking their division rivals, the Los Angeles Dodgers.
