Carrillo signed with the Chicago Cubs in March 2005. The scout was Raúl Cano. He was 2-5 with a save and a 2.81 ERA for the DSL Cubs that summer, walking only 12 in 57 2/3 innings. In '06, he split time between the AZL Cubs (4-0, 1.73) and Peoria Chiefs (6 R in 3 IP). Among Arizona League hurlers with 40+ innings, only Vladimir Veras had a better ERA. Carrillo slumped with Peoria in 2007 at 7-6, 4.07. In 2008, the 21-year-old was with the Daytona Cubs (7-6, 2.88, .99 WHIP) and Tennessee Smokies (2-2, 7.03). He was second to Rick Porcello in the Florida State League in ERA, .22 off the pace.
The right-hander split 2009 between Daytona (1 scoreless inning) and the Smokies (4-1, 4.21, 29 BB in 51 1/3 IP), moving to the bullpen. He bounced around the Cubs system in 2010, with stops for Daytona (2-0, 3 Sv, 1.67 in 17 G), Tennessee (5-0, 2 Sv, 4.47 in 24 G) and the Iowa Cubs (0-1, 2.45 in 4 G). In 2011, he fared well for the Smokies (5-4, 3 Sv, 2.36 in 29 G) but poorly with Iowa (2-1, 6.10 in 11 G). He was 5 for 19 at the plate between the two teams. On Tennessee's staff, only Jeff Beliveau had a lower ERA and 50+ innings.
He had a 5-3, 2.72 record for the Yaquis de Obregon in the 2011-2012 Mexican Pacific League. He was third in ERA behind Tomas Solis and Andres Meza and tied for 5th in wins. In the postseason finale, he tossed six shutout innings (3 H, 6 K) to beat the Algodoneros de Guasave to give Obregon the title.
