    Castillo is one of the rawest, toolsiest prospects in the entire class. An accomplished football player from upstate New York, Castillo has limited baseball experience and doesn't face quality competition in high school. He has natural above-average raw power in his thick, muscular 6-foot-2, 225 pound build. Castillo's swing is rarely synced up, and most of his power comes from his strength and hands; he has yet to incorporate his lower half to create separation in his swing, and he was susceptible to swinging and missing at quality velocity and breaking pitches on the summer showcase circuit. Castillo is a plus-plus runner in the 60-yard dash, though he has yet to translate that to the field thus far. He typically shows a below-average arm, but flashes a plus arm at the Area Code Games when he needed to make a bang-bang play from right field to catch a runner sliding into third. Castillo is committed to Oklahoma; he has the tools to be an excellent baseball player but is raw and would likely struggle early on at the D-I level. Scouts think he'd be better off developing for a couple years in the low minors rather than risking going to college and not performing.
