by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/4/15) Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos made it into the lineup for Wednesday's spring game against the Orioles after leaving Tuesday's game with a left hand contusion, per MLB.com. Castellanos underwent X-rays on Tuesday, which came back negative.

Tigers' Nick Castellanos departs with hand injury; X-rays negative

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/3/15) Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos was forced out of Tuesday's Grapefruit League opener with a left hand contusion, according to the team's official website. Castellanos underwent X-rays, which came back negative, and is listed as day to day moving forward.

Detroit will play Baltimore in Sarasota, Fla., on Wednesday.

Avila, Gose among options to bat second for Tigers vs. RHPs

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/23/15) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Monday he is "seriously considering" batting catcher Alex Avila second in the order against right-handed pitchers, per MLive.com. Anthony Gose appears to be the other main option, but Gose could also lead off, which would allow Ian Kinsler to bat second.

Ausmus added Jose Iglesias could also work into the mix, but he doesn't see Yoenis Cespedes, J.D. Martinez or Nick Castellanos as options to bat second.

Tigers' Castellanos works to be 'more comfortable' at 3B in 2015

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/27/15) Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos struggled in his first full year playing third base at the major-league level in 2014, so he is hard at work this offseason improving his defense

"Last year was [about] the actual ground-ball catching," Castellanos said, per MLB.com. "This year is a lot more [about] quickness, working on my range, lateral movement."

On top of committing 15 errors, Castellanos' Ultimate Zone Rating of negative-18.4 was nearly twice as bad as the next-lowest rating among third-base regulars. He also had a Defensive Runs Saved of minus-30 and a plus/minus rating of minus-39, which was lowest in the majors last year.

"I'm going to be more comfortable this year," Castellanos said. "Last year, I knew nobody [in terms of hitting tendencies]. Also I was getting used to the tempo of the game. It wasn't like I was in the big leagues for a while at another position and then had to go to third base. It was pretty much me making my first year in the big leagues at pretty much a new position, or trying to relearn an old position."

Tigers' Castellanos spending offseason improving his defense

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/10/14) Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos is focusing on improving his quickness during offseason workouts in order to improve defensively, Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said Tuesday at the Winter Meetings.

Castellanos committed 15 errors and had a .950 fielding percentage in 145 games at third base in 2014.

"His hands are solid and his arm is solid," Dombrowski said, per MLive.com. "He normally catches what he gets to, but we're looking to increase his quickness over there.

"There's no question, from a defensive perspective, that he needs to improve. But when I say that, we try to give him the benefit of the doubt. He hadn't played third base in a while."

Dombrowski also has confidence in Castellanos' offensive abilities after he hit just .259 with 11 home runs as a rookie.

"We think he has a chance to be a good offensive player," Dombrowski said. "He had a good solid year last year, and we think he's going to continue to get better. When you look at his numbers for a rookie, and in a pennant race, his offensive numbers were pretty good."
