Detroit Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos has been making adjustments at the plate, and they have been paying dividends lately. At the end of May, he worked with hitting coach Wally Joyner to come up with some solutions to pitches that had been giving Castellanos the most trouble. For the most part, the pitches were breaking balls low in the zone that Castellanos simply lacked the plate discipline to avoid. "It's difficult to hit well when you're swinging at bad pitches," Castellanos said.
Fantasy Tip: Castellanos also worked with Joyner on the placement of his hands and feet. Since making the adjustments, Castellanos has seen his batting average rise from .229 to .274.
