      Reds' Nick Castellanos: Back in action

      Nick Castellanos (illness) will start in right field and bat third Thursday in the Cincinnati Reds' Cactus League game against the Brewers, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.Castellanos returns to the spring lineup for the first time since Feb. 26 after the Reds kept him out of action as a precaution for more than a week due to the illness.

      Reds' Nicholas Castellanos: Reaches deal with Cincinnati

      Nick Castellanos agreed Monday with the Cincinnati Reds on a contract, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports. The outfielder will make $64 million over four years but can opt out after the first season, per Jeff Passan of ESPN.com.Though the Rangers and Giants remained in the bidding for Castellanos' services as recently as a few days ago, the Reds were able to make significant headway in negotiations with the 27-year-old over the weekend and have now finalized a deal. Castellanos will likely man right or left field as he heads to Cincinnati, presumably pushing Jesse Winker (neck) and/or Aristides Aquino to the bench as a result. While his outfield defense leaves much to be desired, Castellanos will provide yet another boost to an offense already brimming with quality talent, essentially filling the lineup spot that was vacated by Yasiel Puig. Castellanos has been an above-league-average hitter each of the past four seasons, slashing .286/.336/.504 (121 wRC+) over that span.

      Cubs' Nicholas Castellanos: Likely done for season

      Nicholas Castellanos (groin) has likely played his final game of the season, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.It doesn't sound as though Castellanos' groin tightness is a particularly major concern, but with just two games left in the season and nothing left to play for, the Chicago Cubs have little reason to bring him back. The outfielder's .289/.337/.525 season slash line and career-high 27 homers should earn him a sizeable contract as a free agent this offseason, especially since he'll be hitting the market as a 27-year-old.
