Tigers | Detroit sticking with Nick Castellanos

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 14:39:01 -0700

Detroit Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos is sticking at third base despite a surge by SS Andrew Romine lately. Romine was 6-for-15 (.400) in the last four games with three doubles, two home runs and three RBI, while Castellanos is hitting only .224 with 10 doubles, four triples and four home runs with 28 RBI in 70 games this year. "I think he's going to be fine," manager Brad Ausmus said of Castellanos. "He looked better the last few days after taking the better part of three games off. ... Sometimes you get paralyzed when you're trying to fix everything. You're trying to fix your hands, fix your feet. You get paralyzed because you're thinking about everything except the one thing you should be thinking about and that's the ball."

Fantasy Tip: Castellanos ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) isn't out of the woods yet after getting two hits Thursday. Those in need of middle infield help in AL-only leagues should stash Romine ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) just in case. Tonight on FantasyScore, Castellanos could pay off as a sleeper pick, as he's hitting .295 (13-for-44) against southpaws this season. He's facing Chicago White Sox starter Jose Quintana.

Tigers | Nick Castellanos back at 3B

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 14:34:09 -0700

Detroit Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos is starting at third base and hitting sixth against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar Tuesday, June 23.

Fantasy Tip: Castellanos ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is hitting only .217 on the year and is 9-for-51 (.176) with no homers and five RBI in the month of June. He has lost playing time at the hot corner as a result. Avoid using him in daily lineups until he shows some signs of life at the plate.
