Frank Anthony Castillo (born April 1, 1969 in El Paso, Texas) is a retired Major League Baseball starting pitcher. Castillo has played for the Chicago Cubs (1991-1997), Colorado Rockies (1997), Detroit Tigers (1998), Toronto Blue Jays (2000), Boston Red Sox (2001-2002, 2004), and Florida Marlins (2005), In his 13-year career, he has had 82 wins and 104 losses, 1101 strike outs, and a 4.56 ERA.

Castillo retired from Major League Baseball after he had 2 kids and after receiving a World Series Championship ring as a brief member of the 2004 Boston Red Sox. He returned to baseball in 2007 with the York Revolution of the independent Atlantic League and again played for them in 2008. He is currently the pitching coach for the Mesa Cubs.

On September 25, 1995, in a 7-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals at Wrigley Field, Castillo had a no-hitter broken up with two out in the ninth by inches. Bernard Gilkey hit a line drive that fell in for a hit, despite an all-out attempt by Sammy Sosa to make a diving catch. The ball rolled to the wall for a triple, the only hit Castillo would allow. The no-hitter would have been the first by a Cub (and, in fact, the first the Cubs had been involved in) since Milt Pappas in 1972.
