The Rays have placed right-handed reliever Diego Castillo on the 10-day injured list with shoulder inflammation, Juan Toribio of MLB.com tweets. Righty Hunter Wood is coming up from Triple-A Durham to take Castillo’s spot.
This is another notable blow to the Rays’ bullpen. The unit has already been without one of Castillo’s fellow late-game hurlers, Jose Alvarado, for almost all of June as he deals with a family matter.
The 25-year-old Castillo owned a 2.05 ERA as recently as June 11, but a couple recent blowups have sullied his output. He allowed six earned runs over a combined 1 2/3 innings in his previous two appearances, raising his ERA to 3.93 over 34 1/3 frames. Castillo has also put up a 4.51 FIP with 9.96 K/9, 4.19 BB/9 and a 52.9 percent groundball rate.
