Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos homers twice, gets five RBI in win


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(8/20/2015) Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos went 4 for 5 with two home runs, two doubles and five RBI in Wednesday's win over the Cubs.

Castellanos is hitting .381 with eight hits, two doubles, two home runs and eight RBI in his last five games.


Tigers' Nick Castellanos continued recent power surge Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/1/2015) 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
(7/25/2015) 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

Tigers' Castellanos on go-ahead hit: 'I've been waiting for that all season'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus told reporters he started seeing a "noticeable difference" in Nick Castellanos approach at the plate during batting practice prior to Wednesday's game against Milwaukee. Castellanos backed that up with a pivotal bases-clearing triple in the eighth inning to lead his club to a 5-2 victory, snapping a three-game losing streak

"I've been waiting for that all season," Castellanos said, per MLive.com. "I needed it. The team needed it. The organization, the fans needed it. Everybody needed it. And I'm just blessed that I was able to deliver it."

Castellanos is hitting .278 (15 for 54) with a double, two triples, a home run and nine RBI over his last 14 games, raising his batting average from .216 to .240 on the season.

"Lately, I've been trying to get really mechanical, trying to have the perfect swing," Castellanos said. "You see the way J.D. (Martinez) swings and you see the way Miguel (Cabrera) swings and you see how good of hitters they are, obviously you want to hit like them, because it's no secret why they have success.

"But Newie and Wally made a good point. They said, 'Hey, they're great at what they do. You're great the way you do it. You don't have to try to adjust to the way they do to have success. You can have success the way you hit.' So that's what I did. All through coming up, I've always been kind of tall, free and easy, and I went back to that. To be honest, I felt pretty comfortable."
