Cincinnati Reds general manager Nick Krall has issued a statement denying rumors that Luis Castillo could be traded to the New York Yankees.

"[The rumors] are completely false," Krall told The Cincinnati Enquirer. "We intend to have [Castillo] as a member of our rotation for 2021."

According to Jon Heyman of the MLB Network, the Reds informed teams that they now intend to hold onto Castillo, but they tested the waters for a potential trade.
