Tigers | Nick Castellanos knocks in five

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 12:53:30 -0700

Detroit Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos went 3-for-5 with two runs, a double, a home run and five RBI during the Tigers' 12-2 win over the Cleveland Indians Wednesday, July 6.

Fantasy Tip: After being a late scratch because of an illness Tuesday, July 5, Castellanos tied his career-high 15 home runs from 2015 Wednesday. He's emerged as a viable starter at the hot corner in all fantasy setups and is providing huge fantasy numbers this season: 41 runs, 15 home runs, 45 RBI and a .302/.342/.526 slash line. Continue to start him confidently going forward.

Tigers | Nick Castellanos scratched

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 14:37:42 -0700

Detroit Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos (illness) was a late scratch from the game against the Cleveland Indians Tuesday, July 5, because of flu-like symptoms. INF/OF Mike Aviles draws into the lineup at third base and will bat seventh against Cleveland SP Carlos Carrasco Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Sub out Castellanos where you can in seasonal leagues, and view Aviles as as desperation fantasy option against Carrasco in all formats Tuesday. Expect Castellanos to return to the lineup sooner than later.

Tigers | Nick Castellanos swats 15th home run

Mon, 04 Jul 2016 22:16:44 -0700

Detroit Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos finished 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and a double in a losing cause against the Cleveland Indians on Monday, July 4.

Fantasy Tip: Castellanos tied the career high set last year with the blast and only needs to score one more run to match his 2015 contribution in that department as well. Although an All-Star bid may not be coming his way, his .302 average, 15 homers and 45 RBI certainly make him a solid candidate. Castellanos is a top-10 third baseman for the season and should be starting in all leagues.

Tigers | Nick Castellanos enjoys banner day

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 20:26:21 -0700

Detroit Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer - his 14th - and finished a double shy of the cycle versus the Miami Marlins on Tuesday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Castellanos wasn't interested in running up pitch counts tonight either, as he saw only nine. The 24-year-old is already one home run shy of matching his career high set last year, while his .302/.337/.526 slash line would top each of his previous personal-best marks by a wide margin. His breakout season is upon us, and owners should go along for the ride.

Tigers | V-Mart, Maybin out Thursday

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 07:18:56 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez and OF Cameron Maybin are out of the lineup Thursday, June 23. 3B Nick Castellanos is hitting cleanup, and SS Jose Iglesias hits second. OF Andrew Romine is hitting ninth in center field, and C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is playing first and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Castellanos has cooled a bit with a .274-3-8 line this month, but he's a high-end consideration behind Miguel Cabrera. Iglesias is hitting .356 this month, and he has high upside ahead of Miggy. Romine and Salty aren't strong DFS flyers against Adrian Sampson.

Tigers | Victor Martinez not playing

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 13:17:44 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez (knee) is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Miguel Gonzalez Tuesday, June 14. 3B Nick Castellanos will serve as the designated hitter, while 3B Mike Aviles will start at third base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Castellanos is hitting .200 with two home runs and four RBI over the last seven days but should be a fine starting candidate in most leagues. Aviles is hitting .261 with two RBI this month, but owners likely will be able to find better options to use in their lineups.

Tigers | Nick Castellanos dials long distance

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 20:43:04 -0700

Detroit Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos connected for a solo home run in four at-bats Saturday, June 11, against the New York Yankees. It was his 12th homer of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Castellanos swatted a career-high 15 homers last season, so he is well on pace for a career best in 2016. He is also hitting .309, 43 points better than his career average, so he has really come into his own and emerged as a must-start fantasy option in all AL-only leagues and most mixed formats.
