Reds Ace Set To Return

The 5-23 Cincinnati Reds are getting a boost, as Luis Castillo has been activated off the injured list.

Castillo is set to make his first start of the season on Monday against the Milwaukee Brewers. During the 2021 season, he had an 8-16 record and 3.98 ERA. It's important to note, however, that his play improved immensely as the year progressed. Due to this, there's optimism that he can put together another All-Star-caliber campaign from here. 

Castillo's name has once again come up in the rumor mill, so it will be interesting to see how he does from here. With the Reds being atrocious, they will be hoping Castillo has a great season, as it will help raise his trade value.
