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.
