Luis Castillo signs trial contract with Philadelphia Phillies

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Luis CastilloNobody expected it to take very long for deposed second baseman Luis Castillo to find work. The mere fact that the New York Mets – who released him last Friday – will pick up the tab for whichever team asks for his services suggested that.

If he doesn’t prove himself good enough in that time frame, they’ll release him outright.
