Tigers will continue to pull Castellanos with lead late in games
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus lifted third baseman Nick Castellanos for defensive purposes in the ninth inning in each of the team's three wins over the weekend against the Indians. Ausmus said this trend will continue to happen until Castellanos improves defensively.

"If we get to a point where I'm as confident in him as I am in (Andrew) Romine or (Hernan) Perez, then maybe we get to a point where Nick stays out there and I hope he does," Ausmus said, per the Detroit Free Press. "I'd rather not bring someone in for Nick.

"I want him to be the guy, but we also have to -- if we have a lead late in the game -- depending on the score, the closer the score, the more important keeping that team where they're at. I'm going to have to put what I think is our best defense out there."

Tigers' Nick Castellanos impresses with plate maturity
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos went 2 for 4 with a home run in his team's 8-4 win over the Indians Friday, but it was his work drawing a walk after falling behind in the count that impressed manager Brad Ausmus, The Detroit News reports.

"The slider and change-up down are the pitches that gave him the most trouble last year against right-handers, and the change-up, too, against lefties," manager Brad Ausmus said. "He’s made a concerted effort to make sure he gets those pitches up, recognizes them as off-speed and make them be up in the zone where they can be hit."

Castellanos hit .158 and struck out 140 times after having two strikes against him in 2014, and he's changed his approach with two strikes while also working on plate discipline and pitch recognition.

"There is no secret formula for it," Castellanos said. "It just happens in time and with game repetition."

Castellanos is 3 for 14 with one home run, three walks and two strikeouts in his first four games.

Avila, Gose among options to bat second for Tigers vs. RHPs
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Monday he is "seriously considering" batting catcher Alex Avila second in the order against right-handed pitchers, per MLive.com. Anthony Gose appears to be the other main option, but Gose could also lead off, which would allow Ian Kinsler to bat second.

Ausmus added Jose Iglesias could also work into the mix, but he doesn't see Yoenis Cespedes, J.D. Martinez or Nick Castellanos as options to bat second.
