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.
