Manny Castillo played parts of three years in the majors. After a seven game cameo with the 1980 Kansas City Royals in 1980, he was the regular third baseman for the Seattle Mariners in 1982, hitting .257/.286/.336 with 29 doubles in 138 games. He played a final 91 games, with a .207/.233/.266 line, in 1983. During his 10 years in the minors, he hit over .300 several times, with a peak in 1981 when he hit .335 with 31 doubles and was named MVP of the American Association. Although there have been 23 major leaguers through 2019 with the last name Castillo, Manny was one of the earliest. The first, Bobby Castillo, made his debut three years before Manny.

Castillo spent eight years (1989-1996) managing and coaching for the minor league affiliate of the Hiroshima Carp in the Dominican Republic. He also had an extensive minor league coaching career.
