The Philadelphia Phillies have claimed infielder Diego Castillo off waivers from the New York Yankees.

Castillo spent the 2023 season with the Arizona Diamondbacks. He played most of the season in Triple-A.

The Diamondbacks DFA’d him and he was claimed by the New York Mets before they DFA’d him following their signing of Sean Manaea. The Yankees then claimed him, but DFA’d him 10 days later.

In 2022, Castillo played in 96 games. He had a .206 batting average with 11 home runs and 29 RBI.

The Phillies have added Castillo to their 40-man roster.
