(9/16/14) Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos was a late scratch from Tuesday's starting lineup due to left foot soreness, the team announced.
Castellanos fouled a ball off his left foot in Monday's game, and the team has decided to let him rest the injured foot Tuesday rather than risk further injury. The third baseman has hit .266/.313/.405 with 10 home runs and 60 RBI in 496 at-bats.
|Nick Castellanos goes deep in win |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(8/14/14) Tigers infielder Nick Castellanos put together a solid performance Wednesday, in an 8-4 win over the Pirates.
Castellanos went 2 for 4 with two extra-bas hits, including an RBI triple in the second inning and a solo homer in the sixth. He scored once to go with his two RBI in the game.
Castellanos has put up a solid rookie season, hitting .262/.312/.419 with nine home runs and 46 RBI in 370 at-bats.
|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.
