RotoWire News: Castro, a hard-throwing non-roster invitee, has made an impression with his aggressiveness and performance over his first two spring appearances, Jane Lee of reports. "He's pretty passionate about what he does, and when he came to the mound, he was pretty vocal," A's manager Bob Melvin said. "He was telling the guys, 'Let's go! Right now, let's go!' I haven't heard that too many times out of pitchers, let alone in Spring Training, so he impressed me with his eagerness to pitch and certainly was not scared and got the outs we needed." (3/2/2017)
