Cubs minor league pitcher sentenced for brawl incident

Justice moves slow in the minor leagues. Just ask Julio Castillo.

Julio Castillo was the pitcher who was involved in the bench-clearing brawl during the Dayton Dragons-Peoria Chiefs game in Dayton last July.  During the brawl, Castillo threw a ball into the stands and injured a fan.

Well, over a year later, he’s finally getting his due.  An Ohio judge sentenced him to 30 days in jail and three year’s probation

Castillo hasn’t pitched all year and it looks like he’ll have to wait till next year before he throws again.
