NICK CASTELLANOS RUMORS

Tigers’ Nick Castellanos makes excellent defensive play vs. Red Sox

Ok, so maybe Mookie Betts slipped, but it was still a nice play. Defensive highlights have been few and far between for Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos throughout his career. He will likely never be a wizard with the glove, but he has shown flashes of competence in 2016. One of those instances came on Monday, when Castellanos ventured into foul territory to throw out the speedy...

WATCH: Brad Ausmus loses his mind during ejection

Brad Ausmus lost his mind as he was ejected from Monday’s Detroit Tigers game against the Minnesota Twins. Ausmus’ Tigers scored eight runs in the bottom of the first to get off to a great start, but then they saw the lead evaporate over the next few innings. By the bottom of the fourth, the score was 8-7. So you can imagine why Ausmus was frustrated then when Nick Castellanos...

Nick Castellanos’ Launch-Angle Improvements

If you look at Nick Castellanos‘ traditional statistics, you obviously will notice that something is different. His OPS is over 1.000 after messing around in the 700 level before. This was the kind of improvement we were hoping for! The wait is over! If you look at the next level, things begin to muddy. Over 40% of the third baseman’s balls in play have fallen for hits, compared...

The wait for Nick Castellanos will soon be over

Young Tiger Nick Castellanos has two seasons under his belt and hasn’t yet turned 24. He’s shown flashes of the talent he was supposed to have as a top prospect, but he’s on the wrong side of the leaderboards so far. The second half had some good news for him, particularly when it came to his plate discipline, but it’s fair to wonder how important he will be for Detroit...

Detroit Tigers trade rumors: a philosophical debate

So far, the Detroit Tigers have yet to pull the trigger on an apparently inevitable trade deadline move to shore up their bullpen. They have inquired on guys such as Joakim Soria, Joaquin Benoit, Neal Cotts, Jonathan Papelbon, Antonio Bastardo, and surely many others that we don’t know about. If you’re following things closely then chances are you sit on one side of the fence...

With seemingly infinite possibilities facing the Detroit Tigers and their roster remodeling project following the Prince Fielder trade, left field is sure to get some attention. If the Tigers make a move here, expect it to be for a left-handed hitter, and likely one with some pop in his bat. The Tigers have three options: Go in-house with Andy Dirks/Nick Castellanos Sign a free...
