Former Saltdogs RHP Angel Castro (2010) made his Major League Baseball debut May 9, pitching in relief for Oakland.
The 32-year old from Pimentel, Domincan Republic tossed 2/3 of an inning scoreless in the Athletics’ loss to Seattle.
Castro pitched for the Saltdogs during the 2010 season, going 3-3 with a 3.16 ERA with 21 strikeouts in 31 1/3 innings.
He becomes the second Lincoln alum (Chris Jakubauskas, 2006) to reach “The Show.” Castro also pitched on the record-setting Dominican Republic team in the 2013 World Baseball Classic.
The right-hander appeared in 196 minor league games over nine seasons before his first MLB appearance for Oakland.
