Tigers | Adjustments helping Nick Castellanos

Tue, 17 Jun 2014 19:37:12 -0700

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.

Tigers | Nick Castellanos still adjusting to third base

Mon, 03 Mar 2014 18:18:31 -0800

Detroit Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos hit his first home run of the spring Monday, March 3, in a Grapefruit League game against the St. Louis Cardinals, and he has five hits in 10 at-bats with seven RBI. However, he is still getting used to playing third base again, and manager Brad Ausmus said that was evident Monday. There was one play where Castellanos was unable to come up with a backhanded grab, and Ausmus said "a good third baseman probably makes that play."

Fantasy Tip: Ausmus has to be happy with the bat of Castellanos, and the prospect has another month to work on his defense and get more comfortable, something Ausmus admitted could potentially happen. Fantasy owners will be very pleased if the offense keeps up. He is a great long-term keeper prospect, a must-have in AL-only leagues and he has value in deeper mixed formats, too. If your fantasy provider allows him to be used at both his old position of outfield, as well as third base, his natural position, he will be a very useful guy due to his versatility.
