Sox sign Fabio Castro


According to Ken Rosenthal on Twitter, the Red Sox have signed reliever Fabio Castro. The 25 year old Castro was originally signed by the Chicago White Sox in 2001 as an undrafted free agent. After three years in the White Sox system, he was the first overall selection by the Kansas City Royals in the 2005 Rule V Draft. He was then immediately traded to the Texas Rangers for Esteban German. Castro made his major league debut with the Rangers in 2006 before being traded once again to the Philadelphia Phillies for Daniel Haigwood. In 16 games out of the Phillies bullpen in 2006, he posted a 1.54 ERA in 16 games. He remained a part of the Phillies organization for all of 2007 and 2008, only making 10 appearances with the club in 2007. Castro was sent packing once again in the 2009 offseason, this time to the Toronto Blue Jays, to complete an earlier trade for Matt Stairs.

Castro has posted a 3.30 ERA in 30 games at the major league level in 43.2 innings across two seasons. In seven season in the minors, he has compiled a 3.52 ERA in 214 games (61 starts) striking out 499 batters across 572.1 innings.
