DETROIT -- No one expects a 23-year-old to be a finished product in the real world and they really shouldn't in baseball, either. Let's face it, most players aren't like Miguel Cabrera and Mike Trout, who can jump right into the big leagues and be immediate stars. Nick Castellanos had high expectations put upon him when he was made the Tigers' starting third baseman last season at...

Four external solutions to the Castellanos problem

      We can all admit that the Tigers have a black hole in the batting order at third base. Nick Castellanos has had a horrible sophomore season. His on OPS is the worst in the major leagues among qualifying third baseman and ninth worst among those who have enough at bats to qualify for the batting title.

Game 2015.42: Astros at Tigers

Nick Castellanos had his biggest hit of the season last night, a slicing line drive with the bases juiced in the 8th inning. Castellanos was credited with a triple and showed a ton of emotion standing on third, rightfully so. It was a huge moment for a team that sorely needed a big hit. (Let’s be clear, the RF took an awful angle, but it would have driven in at least 2 in any event...
