Cincinnati Reds GM says ‘completely false’

Cincinnati Reds general manager Nick Krall ended speculation of a Twitter rumor that the club was on the verge of trading pitcher Luis Castillo to the New York Yankees on Sunday night. 

"Regarding the Luis Castillo rumors to the Yankees, they are completely false," Krall said. "We intend to have him as a member of our rotation for 2021." 

Responding to a tweet about the false rumor, Castillo's agent, Rafa Nieves, wrote: "Not true at all." 

Reds general manager Nick Krall said there is no truth that the Reds were on the verge of trading starting pitcher Luis Castillo to the New York Yankees.

MLB Network Radio's Jim Bowden said on Friday afternoon that the Yankees had chatted with the Reds regarding Castillo, but none of the talks were recent. That was before the Yankees reportedly agreed to terms with free-agent pitcher Corey Kluber on Friday night. 

That morphed into a false report Sunday night that a trade was done. 

The Reds have gauged the trade market for some of their top players this offseason, including Castillo, Sonny Gray and Eugenio Suárez, but the Reds aren't committed to trading any of them.
