Castellanos (hamstring) was reinstated from the 7-day disabled list Sunday and returned to action with Triple-A Norfolk. The Miami native played in just 11 games with the Tides before being sidelined in April. Castellanos came off the DL in July, but aggravated the injury after just four games, sending him back to the shelf until now. Through 16 games at Triple-A, the former big leaguer is slashing just .176/.276/.294.
Castellanos (hamstring) was placed on the 7-day disabled list Wednesday. Castellanos was 7-for-35 with three RBI and three walks at Triple-A before landing on the DL. The 30-year-old hasn't appeared in the majors since 2013, and has just seven hits in 41 at-bats at that level. Additionally, as a third baseman in the same organization as Manny Machado, it's highly unlikely he'll see significant playing time with Baltimore in the near future.
Castellanos signed a minor league deal with the Orioles on Tuesday, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports. The 30-year-old hasn't been to the majors since 2013, but that's not because of lackluster performances in AAA. Last season, he slashed .299/.364/.482 in 184 plate appearances over 49 games for Triple-A Albuquerque, while he slashed .314/.381/.614 in 312 plate appearances over 79 games with Triple-A Las Vegas in 2015. He's likely to serve as organizational depth for Baltimore next season. Injuries to the Orioles outfield could result in a promotion for Castellanos, but he wouldn't be expected to see consistent playing time.
The Mets reassigned Alex Castellanos and Chasen Bradford to minor-league camp on Saturday, per ESPN.
Mets outfielder Alex Castellanos returned from a bruised foot Monday and singled in his only at-bat while also seeing time at third base. Castellanos is 8 for 30 this spring, but five of his eight hits have been for extra bases, including two doubles, two triples and one home run. He came out of Saturday's game with the foot issue after colliding with a runner.
