The 29-year-old has good stuff, but a lot of wildness, too.

How very exciting for the Reds.
The Cubs will try to get out of Cincy with a split behind a guy who hasn’t won in over a year.
It’s almost certainly going to get done soon, but, technically, it isn’t done. Brett Jackson is feeling good, Alfonso Soriano is feeling proud, and Anthony Rizzo is feeling even.
You’re running out of time to see some of the Cubs’ minor league affiliates.
The Cubs split/tied yesterday’s doubleheader with the Reds.
The deal buys out three years of free agency, and comes with another option year on the end. Castro’s agent says the deal isn’t quite done.
The latest on the extension talks, including thoughts straight from the men, themselves.
He was just released by the Red Sox, and the natural questions come up. Travis Wood couldn’t duplicate, Albert Almora can dominate, and Ryan Dempster can’t travel.
Totally not altruistic reasons for hoping the Smokies win this week.
Travis Wood had a rough night.
A couple of homer-prone pitchers on a warm evening in Great American Ballpark? Could be high-scoring.
Jed Hoyer, predictably, says the Cubs probably won’t be going free agent crazy this Winter. How about some August trades, though?
This thing is almost certainly going to happen. Darwin Barney continues to get love, Frankie De La Cruz is gone, and Jorge Soler might be hurt.
Wondering about playing a major league team and a minor league team in the same place in the same season. Also, Javier Baez and Pierce Johnson dominate.
The extension could lock Castro up as a Cub for the next six years.
