Tigers' Nick Castellanos continued recent power surge Saturday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(8/1/15) Third baseman Nick Castellanos was the source of the Tigers' only runs in the 6-2 loss to the Orioles on Saturday. Castellanos went 1 for 3 with his 11th home run of the year.
The two-run blast came in the fifth inning, but the Tigers were alread down by five runs at that point.
The young third baseman has now homered five times in his last 12 games, but he has also struck out 17 times--compared to six walks--over that stretch.
Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos homers, doubles in Saturday win
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/25/15) If recent trends are any indication, Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos will hit a home run Sunday in Boston.
He has twice already this month gone yard in back-to-back games. And he nailed one Saturday against the Red Sox.
His solo homer in the sixth was his ninth the season and put the cherry on top of an easy victory. One of the reasons it was an easy victory was that he hit a two-run double in the sixth.
"It was well-struck," Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said of Castellano's home run, per MLB.com. "At the time, it was a big run because they had just scored. We came back next half-inning and got that run right back with Nick's home run."
Castellanos now owns a slash line of .245/.294/.393. His slugging percentage is at its highest point since May 24.
"To hit it over the Green Monster? It's freaking awesome," Castellanos said. "The Green Monster is a baseball icon. Everybody knows what you're talking about when you say it. The amount of movies it's been in. I've seen this park countless times. I remember looking at this park when I was younger and seeing how tall the fence was. I'm like, 'How does anyone hit it over that?' And to say I was able to do that in a game was pretty cool."
Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos sends one 448 feet in Wednesday win
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/22/15) Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos didn't just hit a home run Wednesday against Seattle.
He smashed a 448-foot grand slam to center. There's a difference.
The blast turned a tight game into a relative rout for Detroit, which led just 1-0 until Castellanos stepped to the plate and cranked his eighth homer of the season. He also singled in the victory.
He has ended an 0-for-12 stretch in style with five hits, including two taters, in the last two games in sweetening his slugging percentage to .389, its highest point since May 27.
Nick Castellanos homers in three-hit night for Tigers
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(7/22/15) Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos went 3 for 4 with a home run in Tuesday's loss to Seattle.
Castellanos got his first hit since July 11, his first multi-hit game since July 10, his first RBI since July 8 and his first home run since July 7.
|2014 summary: As a 22-year-old rookie, Nick Castellanos' game was a work in progress. He struck out in 26 percent of his at-bats and offered modest power with 11 home runs, but there were some clear positives. Castellanos hit with gap power and produced 31 doubles and four triples, and his strikeouts were offset by the fact that he hit only 10 infield flies all season. Still, a .259/.306/.394 slash line with 66 RBI and 50 runs wasn't good enough to rank Castellanos among the top 20 third basemen in Fantasy value.|
Playing time status: Castellanos was often the odd man out when the Tigers visited National League parks and the DH slot was eliminated from the lineup. As long as Miguel Cabrera is a viable option at third base, Castellanos could lose occasional at-bats. Even so, he will be the clear regular at the hot corner.
2015 outlook: Castellanos' four-year rise through the Tigers' minor-league system had its share of ups and downs, but at times, he showed an ability to strike out at a moderate rate and hit for decent power. He certainly has breakout potential, but it may not be realized in his sophomore season. The safe play is to pass on Castellanos in standard mixed leagues although he is a worthy gamble in deeper formats.
