Marlins trade Castillo to Twins for two pitchers
MIAMI -- The Florida Marlins' payroll purge left a gaping hole at second base Friday when they traded Luis Castillo to the Minnesota Twins for two pitching prospects.
The departure of Castillo, a three-time All-Star and the Marlins' career leader in six major categories, was the latest move by the franchise to cut costs after repeated bids for a new ballpark failed.
