Latest Update Castellanos is not in the Tigers' starting lineup on Monday. Mon Jul, 21, 06:11 PM
Is a natural with the stick, capable of hitting for both power and average to all fields on a consistent basis. Also owns a very good arm, no matter where he plays.
Flaws: : His glove at third base is a bit suspect for the highest level. Also, he needs to improve as a base-runner in general, but will never steal a lot of bases.
The Tigers are starting Miguel Cabrera at third base and Victor Martinez at first base, instead of DH, since they are playing at a National League park. It will be hard for the Tigers to find playing for the young third baseman when they are without a DH spot.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Castellanos will be replaced by Don Kelly at the hot corner on Friday despite going 2-for-4 in Thursday night's contest. He is now hitting .271 with six home runs and 30 RBI through 261 at-bats and should be expected back in the starting lineup on Saturday. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Castellanos has put together a five-game hitting streak, going 7-for-20 (.350 BA) with three extra-base hits (1 HR), three RBI and three runs scored in that span. Although he has yet to live up to the hype that surrounded him prior to the start of the season, he has managed to get his act together in the month of June (.333 BA), which is good sign of things to come as we reach the halfway point.

The rookie went through a rough May where he posted a slash line of just .233/.286/.322 with only one home run in 90 at-bats, but those May showers of sub-par performances have brought about June flowers as he has been on fire in five games to start the month with a ridiculous slash line of .611/.632/.889 with an OPS of 1.520, so if he happens to be available in your league pick him up and ride him while he is hot.
