    • Castellanos went 2-for-4 with a double and three RBI in Thursday's win over the Royals. Castellanos continued his September tear with his third two-hit performance over the past four games. The 25-year-old has set new career highs in doubles, runs scored, home runs and RBI in what's been a breakout 2017 season, and he should be moving up fantasy draft boards next year.

    • Tigers' Nick Castellanos: Doubles, scores Wednesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Castellanos went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Wednesday's loss to the Royals. Castellanos kept up his torrid September, as he's now slashing .373/.387/.647 this month with six home runs, 10 doubles and 20 RBI. The shift to the outfield hasn't seemed to impact the 25-year-old at all at the plate. Castellanos will likely start 2018 as the team's everyday right fielder, and he'll likely be a coveted fantasy commodity based on his hot finish to 2017.

    • Castellanos went 1-for-4 with a solo homer Friday against the Twins. Castellanos crushed his 26th bomb of the season to open the scoring for the Tigers in the second inning of the game they'd go on to lose. He now has six homers in a month in which he's been tearing the cover off the ball, and in the process, he's likely helping many fantasy teams to advance through the playoffs.

    • Castellanos went 2-for-5 with a double, a homer and two RBI against the A's on Tuesday. He's hit safely in 16 straight games and 21 of the last 22, and Castellanos has doubled in four straight contests now as well. Over that 22-game span, the emerging young slugger has hit .420/.429/.773 with six homers and 22 RBI while striking out only eight times -- a stunning reversal of fortune for a guy who was mired in mediocrity at the dish for much of the campaign.

    • Castellanos went 3-for-4 with a double in Monday's loss to the Athletics. Castellanos now has hits in 15 straight games, and he's gone 25-for-58 (.431) during the stretch. The shift to right field earlier this month hasn't seemed to impact him at the plate. He's poised to enter 2018 as a player on the upswing of his career at just 25 years old.
