Tigers' Nick Castellanos: Still out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castellanos (illness) is feeling better but remains out of the lineup for the Tigers on Sunday, Evan Woodbury of MLive reports.

He is feeling well enough to hit and throw lightly, but won't play today against the Mets. It isn't anything serious, and he'll likely be back in the lineup for the next spring game.

Tigers' Nick Castellanos: Under the weather, out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castellanos is out of the Tigers' Grapefruit League lineup Friday because he's battling an illness, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Omar Infante slides in at third base, hitting sixth. Castellanos should be back in a few days.

Tigers' Nick Castellanos: Wants to hit second
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Castellanos wants to hit second, Chris McCosky of the Detroit News reports.

The Tigers have discussed J.D. Martinez and Castellanos for the spot, and Castellanos certainly seems open to the idea. Ausmus said he wouldn't want his young third baseman to change his approach, but batting second would limit the RBI opportunities. However, Castellanos would see plenty of pitches to hit batting in front of Miguel Cabrera, and he could make a push for 30 home runs if he stays healthy.

Tigers' Nick Castellanos: Could bat second
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Castellanos is a candidate to bat second this season, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Castellanos did not bat second at any point in 2016, as he primarily filled the No. 5 or 6 slots in the lineup. Manager Brad Ausmus is looking to figure out the best way to line up his power bats. Castellanos is primed for a big season if he's healthy, but batting second would limit his RBI potential. It might set him up to score more runs, however, and he could see better pitches to hit batting in front of Miguel Cabrera every day.

Tigers' Nick Castellanos: Showing more power in camp
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Castellanos is showing improved power in his swing early in spring training, theDetroit Free Press reports.

The 24-year-old is turning heads in camp by launching moonshots out of the park. Castellanos hit a career-best 18 home runs last season despite playing in only 110 games due to a hand injury that limited his availability in the second half. He's improved his home run output in each of his four MLB seasons, so a run toward 30 long balls is not out of the question if Castellanos can stay healthy. He should be a fixture in the middle of Detroit's lineup.
