Latest Update Nick Castellanos hits 10th home run Sun Aug, 17, 05:40 AM
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.
Castellanos is now 10-for-22 (.455 BA) with four extra-base hits (2 HR) and seven RBI over his last seven games. Although his first full season in the big leagues would be considered mediocre by most, his performance of late certainly shows what he is capable of and should be given a shot if in need of help at the hot corner down the stretch. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Castellanos is batting .389 and has two home runs in his past seven games, so there is no doubt that he is seeing the ball well right now. He has had growing pains throughout the season, but hasn't found himself in a position where he was close to being demoted. He is firmly entrenched as the third base in Detroit for the foreseeable future.Analyst: David Kerr
Castellanos ended a three-game 1-for-9 slump with this performance as he capped a brilliant six-run first inning with his three-run blast off White Sox starter Hector Noesi. The production has been just okay -- .267 with seven home runs and 41 RBI -- but remember that he's just 22-years-old right now. He's got a very bright outlook for his future, so keeper league owners will want to pay close attention to his performance over the final two months of the season.Analyst: Howard Bender
