Reds RHP Luis Castillo (0-0, 3.38 ERA) at Rock­ies RHP Jeff Hoff­man (4-1, 4.04), 6:10 p.m. Mon­day, ROOT; 850 AM Jon Gray gave the Rock­ies a much-needed boost Fri­day night, and now an­other for­mer high draft pick needs to step up. Hoff­man, the ninth pick in the 2014 draft, has mostly pitched well since get­ting called up from Triple-A, but he has strug­gled at Coors Field. In his last start there, Ari­zona blasted him for a ca­reer-high nine runs. Hoff­man bounced back with a solid start at San Fran­cisco on Tues­day, al­low­ing two runs on six hits over 6M in­nings. Castillo is mak­ing his third big-league start. In each of his first two starts, the Reds blew a save. In his de­but, he left with a 5-2 lead over Wash­ing­ton, and he left Wed­nes­day’s game with a 3-2 lead. He’s the sixth rookie pitcher and 11th pitcher over­all to start a game for the Reds this sea­son.
