O's Castillo takes foul ball to groin, DL possible


Baltimore Orioles catcher Welington Castillo was taken to the emergency room Tuesday night after being hit in the groin by a foul ball in the team’s loss to the New York Yankees.

Buck Showalter said a trip to the disabled list is possible for Castillo, who has a “hematoma in his groin,” according to the Orioles manager.

Castillo’s situation is similar to that of teammate and fellow catcher Caleb Joseph, who was struck in the groin by a foul ball last year. Showalter said Castillo’s injury doesn’t appear to be as severe.
