I think the Reds gave up on Castillo too soon, that he would be an upgrade at third catcher now. He's not a star, but I'd rather see him than Corky or Ashley, who they won't even try.
Of course, no organization has Castillo now (he's playing in Mexico) and he hasn't appeared in the majors for any team since the pre-play-off caliber Reds. His OPS in AAA during the 3 years since the Reds gave him a look in Cincy in 2009 was .697, .650 and .638. He's not better than Corky.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
