|Nick Castellanos slugs seventh home run Wednesday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(7/30/14) Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos went 2 for 4 with a home run and a career-high four RBI in his team's 7-2 win over the White Sox Wednesday.
Castellanos put an exclamation point on a six-run first inning by swatting a three-run home run. He added a fourth RBI on a single in the seventh inning. Castellanos has hit .267/.312/.409 with seven home runs and 41 RBI in 330 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.
