Sad news Mets fans…
The New York Mets are reporting that minor league pitcher Rafael Castro has died of an apparent heart attack. He was just 18 years old.
Castro died Friday at the Mets’ academy in Carabobo, Venezuela. The Mets announced his death Saturday.
Castro had spent two years with the Mets’ team in the Venezuelan Summer League. The right-handed pitcher was from Colombia.
“On behalf of the entire Mets organization, our thoughts and prayers are with the Castro family,” said Jeff Wilpon, Mets Chief Operating Officer.
On behalf of everyone at Mets Merized Online we echo those same sentiments.
