Tampa Bay Rays trade Diego Castillo to Seattle Mariners

In a somewhat surprising move, the Tampa Bay Rays have traded reliever Diego Castillo to the Seattle Mariners. The return from the Mariners is right-handed relief pitcher JT Chargois and minor league infielder Austin Shenton.

Chargois (whose name, according to the Rays press release, is pronounced “SHA-gwah”), is currently 30, and has gone 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA, win 30 IP in 31 appearances, all in relief, for the Mariners this season. He has limited opponents to a .217 average and is especially menacing to lefites, who are only hitting .184 against him so far.
