Castro signed for the New England Revolution on February 15, 2008. He was seriously injured by Chicago Fire's Mexican forward Cuauhtemoc Blanco in his first season. After 30 appearances, including 25 starts, for the Revs in 2008 and 2009, Castro was released by the Revolution on May 14, 2010, having failed to make an appearance in the 2010 season.
In 2011 the left-sided midfielder returned to Honduras and signed with second division Municipal. He then joined Necaxa for the 2011 Apertura season and moved to Atlético Choloma ahead of the 2012 Clausura. He was said to have left Choloma in summer 2012 after playing only two matches into the 2012 Apertura season, since he had received only half of his salary but later declared that a talk with manager Edwin Pavón made him stay with the club.
Castro was born in Honduras' capital Tegucigalpa to Andrés Castro and Lourdes Matamoros. He is married to Glenda and they have two children: Mauricio and Katherine.
