On Saturday, the Detroit Tigers announced they have called up Castillo, who will be wearing No. 54.

Castillo who is 27 years old is getting his first call-up after going 4-1 with a 1.42 ERA in the minors this season. He has 32 strikeouts and 10 walks in 34.2 innings with the Mud Hens.

In a corresponding move, the Tigers have optioned RHP Bryan Garcia to Triple A Toledo.
