Nick Castellanos, 2016 Fantasy Sleeper

I went looking around The Google Machine for Nick Castellanos articles and they go like this starting in 2013 to present (I'm paraphrasing):  "Is High-Flying Prospect, Castellanos, The Next George Brett?"  "Can Castellanos Be Better Than Miggy?"  "Castellanos Hopes To Bounce Back After His Lackluster Rookie Season?"  "One Bad Year Behind Him, But He's Still Young."  "Castellanos...

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....

When is it o.k. to boo the home team?

Recently Nick Castellanos said that some players were upset that the fans booed the Tigers after they were swept in last year’s ALDS. He basically said that some players have not gotten over being booed last year on Detroit Sports 105.1. I’m here to clear up my take on this. Booing is bad. I always see this argument come up and have to shake my head at baseball games when players...

Nick Castellanos talks about fans booing Tigers in postseason

newenglishd.com Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos provided some pointed comments about Tigers players and their feelings toward fans booing in his weekly interview with Detroit 105.1’s Matt Dery.  Now, I appreciate Castellanos’ willingness to be honest.  But, I’m guessing his teammates may not have cared for Nick talking about their feelings. Castellanos said that Victor...

Game 2015.114: Tigers at Royals

When the Tigers only got 4 hits on Monday, all you could really do was shrug; it’s not like Johnny Cueto hasn’t done that before, to other teams. A different feel after a 2nd 4-hit night last night, an “oh this again feel. And it didn’t help that the Tigers made more outs on the base paths again. Remember when the Tigers were leading the league in a lot of offensive categories...

Sunday Notes: Felix, Shark, Archer, Sale, Castellanos, more

My first piece for FanGraphs was an interview with Felix Hernandez. That was in May 2011, when Hernandez was 25 years old and coming off a Cy Young season. Four-plus years later, I’m still here and King Felix is better than ever. Earlier this summer, I asked the Seattle Mariners ace to compare then to now. “I’m a little different,” Hernandez told me. “I don’t throw as...

Castellanos' first career grand slam has special meaning

Nick Castellanos hit his first career grand slam on Wednesday, and it meant more than any other home run he's ht in his young career. The Tigers third baseman struggled through most of the first half and found himself in need of a mental break in late-June, hoping to reboot his game. So he took a break, deciding to sit for a few games. And it worked. "It was kind of a reset button...

Castellanos’ glove has vastly improved. After checking in with -30...
