LA adds Castillo to roster, then options righty

MLB.com @kengurnick

LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers made an unusual roster move on Thursday, selecting the contract of right-handed pitcher Fabio Castillo onto the 40-man roster, optioning him back to Triple-A Oklahoma City and designating left-handed pitcher Justin Marks for assignment.

Castillo has been mostly at Triple-A this season, but he was also briefly with Double-A Tulsa. He is a combined 3-4 in 12 games (seven starts) with a 3.27 ERA and 41 strikeouts in 44 innings. Castillo pitched in Korea last year and worked extensively with Dodgers broadcaster Orel Hershiser during Spring Training.
