|Nick Castellanos goes 3 for 4 again |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(6/8/14) Tigers infielder Nick Castellanos has been on fire in recent days, as he strung together his third three-hit game in a row in an 8-6 win over the Red Sox Saturday.
Castellanos went 3 for 4 in the game and contributed his first home run in nearly a month with his solo shot in the third inning. He drove and scored just one run in the game.
Castellanos is 9 for 12 over the last three games, raising his season batting line to .271/.315/.409. He has five home runs and 21 RBI in 51 games.
|Slider giving Nick Castellanos some trouble |

(5/26/14) After an impressive spring training, Tigers rookie third baseman Nick Castellanos hasn't exactly put up big offensive numbers through the first two months. He comes into Monday's game batting just .236 with 37 strikeouts in 40 games.
"I don’t think anybody thought he was going to come up and be Mike Trout," manager Brad Ausmus said, per the Detroit Free Press. "He’s gotta learn the league. The league’s going to learn him. He’s going to make adjustments. They’re going to adjust to him. ... They go through growing pains, but he still gives good at-bats. If he hits that line drive with the bases loaded yesterday that’s five feet one way or the other it’s two RBI. And the truth is we don’t know what type of player he is."
Ausmus said the rookie is having plenty of difficulty catching up to the slider.
"The slider down, middle away, us giving him a little trouble," Ausmus said. "We talked about him having to make adjustments ... get that pitch up or lay off it or a combination of the two."
|Don Kelly in, Nick Castellanos out of Friday lineup |

(5/2/14) A desire to get another left-handed bat into the lineup for the Tigers against Kansas City ace right-hander James Shields has motivated the benching of third baseman Nick Castellanos on Friday in favor of Don Kelly.
Kelly hasn't started a game or had an at-bat since April 23. He has six hits in 19 at-bats on the season.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Rick Porcello has an AL-leading 12 wins and a 3.39 ERA for the first-place Detroit Tigers. His manager believes that's good enough for the right-hander to be on the All-Star team.

Sanchez helps Tigers squeak out 2-1 win over KC
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Detroit Tigers manager Brad Ausmus was feeling ill even before Friday night's game against Kansas City, so he told bench coach Gene Lamont in the second inning that he was heading upstairs.
|The Tigers spent a year and a half of Nick Castellanos' minor-league development transitioning him to the outfield just so they could free up third base for him as soon as he's projected to win a job out of spring training. OK, so that wasn't exactly the plan, but that's the way it turned out with the Tigers' decision to trade Prince Fielder for Ian Kinsler this offseason, shifting back-to-back AL MVP Miguel Cabrera back to first base and returning Castellanos to his natural position. Not that Fantasy owners are complaining. Third base is fairly weak this year, so the eligibility there will only improve Castellanos' value whenever he regains it. Of course, his bat will have the most say as far as that goes. Yes, his minor-league numbers have been inconsistent, but he was young at every level. In his age-21 season, he took a notable step forward. His walk rate went from scary to decent, and he nearly doubled his home run total from the year before. Plus, scouts still envision him hitting for a high average with his ability to drive the ball the other way. He'll have some growing pains at age 22, but he's a definite sleeper in AL-only formats and may even get drafted in some mixed leagues.
