8/8/2014 10:31:00 PM
Description: Detroit third baseman Nick Castellanos went 1-for-3 with a game-tying two-run homer Friday against the Blue Jays.
Insight: Castellanos' shot came in the ninth inning off closer Casey Janssen and was his eighth homer of the year. It's been a disappointing rookie year for the 22-year-old.
 
7/30/2014 10:43:00 PM
Description: Detroit third baseman Nick Castellanos went 2-for-4 with a homer and four RBI Wednesday against the White Sox.
Insight: Castellanos hadn't homered since June 27. He's gone 17-for-69 (.246) this month and is hitting .267 with seven home runs, 41 RBI and a .721 OPS this season.
 
7/30/2014 3:05:00 PM
Description: Detroit third baseman Nick Castellanos (finger) is back in the lineup Wednesday.
Insight: Castellanos had a ground ball hit his finger during batting practice Tuesday and was scratched from the lineup. He's had a disappointing season, hitting .264 with six homers, 37 RBI and a .709 OPS in 326 at-bats.
 
7/29/2014 6:39:00 PM
Description: Detroit third baseman Nick Castellanos was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to a right index finger contusion.
Insight: Castellanos had a ground ball hit his finger during batting practice. He's had a disappointing season, hitting .264 with six homers, 37 RBI and a .709 OPS in 326 at-bats.
 
7/4/2014 3:28:00 PM
Description: Detroit third baseman Nick Castellanos is not in Friday's starting lineup.
Insight: No injury or slump, it appears to be a routine day of rest. Castellanos is batting .271 with six homers, 30 RBI and a .730 OPS after a solid week in which he batted .353.
 
Hot6/14/2014 8:18:00 PM
Description: Detroit third baseman Nick Castellanos has gone 17-for-39 (.436) with four doubles and a homer in June.
Insight: The hits are starting to fall in for Castellanos, who has one of the best line-drive rates in baseball. However, his RBI Saturday was just his second of the month and 22nd of the season.
 
Hot6/8/2014 9:12:00 AM
Description: Detroit third baseman Nick Castellanos had his third straight three-hit game as well as a home run Saturday against the Red Sox.
Insight: Castellanos (.271) has the second-highest line-drive rate in the majors after Freddie Freeman, but he has a 44/12 K/BB and just 15 extra-base hits (5 HR) in 197 plate appearances. For now, he's only a fantasy option in AL-only leagues.
 
6/6/2014 10:05:00 PM
Description: Detroit third baseman Nick Castellanos went 3-for-4 in Friday's win against the Red Sox.
Insight: That gives the rookie back-to-back three-hit games. Castellanos (.260, 4 HR, 20 RBI) isn't likely to be a fantasy option this year but at age 22 he has a bright future ahead of him.
 
5/18/2014 6:23:00 PM
Description: Tigers rookie Nick Castellanos is getting a rest Sunday against the Red Sox.
Insight: Castellanos (.233, 4 HR, 19 RBI) has done a lot of swinging and missing lately with seven strikeouts in his last 14 at bats. Don Kelly (.316, 0 HR, 2 RBI) is making his sixth start of the season at third base.
 
Cold5/2/2014 6:31:00 PM
Description: Detroit third baseman Nick Castellanos won't start Friday's game against Kansas City.
Insight: The Tigers rookie is just 2-for-16 with seven strikeouts over his last four games. Don Kelly (.316, 0 HR, 1 RBI) will grab the start at third base.
 
4/8/2014 6:42:00 PM
Description: Detroit third baseman Nick Castellanos won't play Tuesday against Los Angeles. SOURCE: Eric Stephen, SB Nation
Insight: With no DH available, the team is putting Miguel Cabrera at third with Victor Martinez manning first base. Castellanos (.385, 0 HR, 1 RBI) could see action as a pinch-hitter later on.
 
Hot3/25/2014 8:00:00 PM
Description: Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos is hitting .389 with nine doubles, two homers and 16 RBI in 54 at-bats this spring.
Insight: MLB.com ranked Castellanos as the No. 15 prospect in baseball this preseason after he hit .276 with 37 doubles, 18 home runs, 76 RBI and a .793 OPS at Triple-A last year. The Tigers opened up a spot at third base for him by trading Prince Fielder for Ian Kinsler and moving Miguel Cabrera across the diamond.
 
3/14/2014 4:08:00 PM
Description: Tigers new 3B Nick Castellanos is batting .400 this spring with a pair of homers, 13 RBI and a 1.158 OPS.
Insight: Castellanos may have more pressure on him than any other rookie as he's basically replacing Prince Fielder in the Detroit lineup.
 
9/1/2013 10:57:00 AM
Description: The Tigers have called up top prospect Nick Castellanos (OF).
Insight: Castellanos hit .276 with 37 doubles, 18 homers and a 100/54 K/BB over 595 plate appearances with Triple-A Toledo this season. It's unclear if he'll take over as the everyday left fielder, but if he does he's worth adding in 12-team leagues.
 
5/16/2013 2:34:00 PM
Description: Tigers top prospect Nick Castellanos (OF) is batting .256 with 13 doubles, four homers, 20 RBI and a 36/13 K/BB in 41 games with Triple-A Toledo.
Insight: Castellanos hit .320 with 32 doubles, 10 homers and an 118/36 K/BB across two levels in 2012 and is ranked as the No. 21 prospect in all of baseball by MLB.com. Andy Dirks is scuffling in left field and center fielder Austin Jackson is on the DL, but Castellanos' numbers don't warrant a callup.
