Detroit Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos is not in the starting lineup Saturday, April 18.
Fantasy Tip: Castellanos ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) probably is just receiving a day off since he has been producing at the play the last few games. Hernan Perez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) only has two at-bats this season and should not be an option on FantasyScore.

Detroit Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos is showing more plate discipline than he did in 2014. He already has four walks this season after not reaching four walks last year until June. Castellanos hit .400 (30-for-75) on the first pitch in 2014, and eight of his 11 homers came on the first pitch. "That's what makes me good," Castellanos said. "Staying aggressive. There's a fine line between being aggressive and being anxious. You want to stay aggressive on good pitches." He also said he is starting to lay off sliders and changeups that righties throw him that are out of the zone.
Fantasy Tip: Castellanos ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is off to a bit of a slow start in 2015, hitting .194 (6-for-31), but he does have a home run and a triple. Against the Pittsburgh Pirates and lefty Francisco Liriano Wednesday, Castellanos doesn't look too appealing at FantasyScore after hitting .237 with three of his eight home runs against lefties in 139 at-bats.

Detroit Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos (hand) left the team's game against the Baltimore Orioles Tuesday, March 3, with a left hand contusion. X-rays were negative and he is day-to-day.
Fantasy Tip: Castellanos should be all right as spring training goes on, and he should be drafted in later rounds of most AL and mixed leagues depending on the amount of playing time he gets.
