Castillo began his career with the Phillies organization as an outfielder. After three full subpar seasons at the plate, the Phillies converted the talented right-hander to the mound where he found much more success. For Class-A Lakewood in 2011, Castillo went 4-2 with a solid 2.54 ERA in 21 appearances. In 46 innings, he allowed just 37 hits while walking 16 and striking out 46. The Cubs selected Castillo with the sixth pick in the Major League phase of the 2011 Rule V draft. Barring injury, he'll have to stay on the Cubs active 25-man roster, or he will be returned to the Philadelphia system following the season. miCubs rated Castillo the 49th best prospect in the Cubs organization prior to the 2012 season.
