Orioles send Castillo to DL with hematoma in groin

After being rushed to the emergency room following Tuesday’s game against the New York Yankees when he was struck in the groin on a deflected pitch, Baltimore Orioles catcher Welington Castillo was placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday after being diagnosed with a hematoma in his groin, according to the Baltimore Sun’s Jon Meoli.

“He’s got a hematoma there in his groin that we’re going to monitor and see how it progresses,” Showalter said, according to Meoli.

Castillo was struck in the ninth inning Tuesday when Richard Bleier‘s pitch deflected off Didi Gregorius and hit Castillo.

Francisco Pena has been called up by the Orioles in a corresponding roster move.
