      Tigers' Nick Castellanos exits with bruised finger Tuesday

      Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos left Tuesday's game with a right index finger contusion and is day-to-day,'s Jason Beck reports. The Tigers only have four games left on the schedule, so fantasy owners will have precious few opportunities to extract any more value from the young third baseman. Andrew Romine and Jefry Marte could see extra time if Castellanos misses any of the Tigers' final games.

      Tigers' Nick Castellanos shakes off groin injury, returns Saturday

      Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos (groin) is back in the lineup Saturday against the Royals. Castellanos came into Friday's game to pinch hit, easing concerns about the groin injury, and sure enough, he's back in the lineup Saturday to face right-hander Edinson Volquez. While the 23-year-old Castellanos is batting .259/.322/.487 since the All-Star break, his season line against same-handed pitching leaves a lot to be desired (.221/.271/.371).

      Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos (groin) not ready to roll just yet

      Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos (groin) remains out of the lineup Friday against the Royals. A bout of groin tightness resulted in Castellanos' scratch from Wednesday's lineup, and it seems the two days of rest -- the Tigers were off Thursday -- were not enough to completely eliminate the issue. Castellanos will, however, be available to pinch hit. Jefry Marte will get another start at third base in his absence.

      Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos homers, doubles in Saturday win

      If recent trends are any indication, Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos will hit a home run Sunday in Boston. He has twice already this month gone yard in back-to-back games. And he nailed one Saturday against the Red Sox. His solo homer in the sixth was his ninth the season and put the cherry on top of an easy victory. One of the reasons it was an easy victory was that he hit a two-run double in the sixth. "It was well-struck," Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said of Castellano's home run, per "At the time, it was a big run because they had just scored. We came back next half-inning and got that run right back with Nick's home run." Castellanos now owns a slash line of .245/.294/.393. His slugging percentage is at its highest point since May 24. "To hit it over the Green Monster? It's freaking awesome," Castellanos said. "The Green Monster is a baseball icon. Everybody knows what you're talking about when you say it. The amount of movies it's been in. I've seen this park countless times. I remember looking at this park when I was younger and seeing how tall the fence was. I'm like, 'How does anyone hit it over that?' And to say I was able to do that in a game was pretty cool."
