Nick Castellanos destined to sit twice against Diamondbacks
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos will be riding the pine for two of three games of the upcoming series in Arizona, according to MLive.com.

His benching would not be performance-related. He would be forced out by Miguel Cabrera, who would move to third with Victor Martinez switching from designated hitter to first base.

Nick Castellanos goes 3 for 4 again
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Tigers infielder Nick Castellanos has been on fire in recent days, as he strung together his third three-hit game in a row in an 8-6 win over the Red Sox Saturday.  

Castellanos went 3 for 4 in the game and contributed his first home run in nearly a month with his solo shot in the third inning. He drove and scored just one run in the game.

Castellanos is 9 for 12 over the last three games, raising his season batting line to .271/.315/.409. He has five home runs and 21 RBI in 51 games.

Slider giving Nick Castellanos some trouble
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

After an impressive spring training, Tigers rookie third baseman Nick Castellanos hasn't exactly put up big offensive numbers through the first two months. He comes into Monday's game batting just .236 with 37 strikeouts in 40 games.

"I don’t think anybody thought he was going to come up and be Mike Trout," manager Brad Ausmus said, per the Detroit Free Press. "He’s gotta learn the league. The league’s going to learn him. He’s going to make adjustments. They’re going to adjust to him. ... They go through growing pains, but he still gives good at-bats. If he hits that line drive with the bases loaded yesterday that’s five feet one way or the other it’s two RBI. And the truth is we don’t know what type of player he is."

Ausmus said the rookie is having plenty of difficulty catching up to the slider.

"The slider down, middle away, us giving him a little trouble," Ausmus said. "We talked about him having to make adjustments ... get that pitch up or lay off it or a combination of the two."
