Reds' Nick Castellanos: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castellanos (illness) will start in right field and bat third Thursday in the 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. The 28-year-old finds himself a little behind schedule now, but he'll have plenty of time to pick up the at-bats he needs to gear up for Opening Day.

Reds' Nick Castellanos: Expected to play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castellanos (illness) is expected to play Thursday in the Reds' Cactus League game against the Brewers, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Castellanos has been withheld from the Reds' spring lineups the past few days due to the illness, but he's apparently made a fair amount of progress since resuming workouts. It's unclear if Castellanos will be limited to designated-hitter duties Thursday or immediately take back a spot in the corner field, but either way, he's in no danger of missing Opening Day.

Reds' Nick Castellanos: Battling illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castellanos' absence from Friday's lineup is due to illness, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

The report is a reassuring one after Castellanos was a late scratch for initially unknown reasons. There doesn't appear to be any reason to worry about the outfielder's readiness for Opening Day.

Reds' Nick Castellanos: Scratched from lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castellanos was scratched from the lineup for Friday's game against Oakland for undisclosed reasons, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

It's not yet clear if Castellanos is dealing with a significant injury, or something minor. If he's forced to miss time, more at-bats would be opened up for Aristides Aquino in right field.

Reds' Nicholas Castellanos: Reaches deal with Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castellanos agreed Monday with the 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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.

Cubs' Nicholas Castellanos: Remains out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castellanos (groin) is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Cardinals.

Right groin tightness led to Castellanos' scratch Friday, and he will remain out Saturday as Tony Kemp gets another start in right field. It's uncertain if Castellanos will play Sunday. A free agent this winter, Castellanos has hit .289/.337/.525 with 27 homers in 151 games between Detroit and Chicago this season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castellanos was scratched from Friday's game against the Cardinals due to right groin tightness.

Castellanos was slated to start in right field and bat second, but he'll head to the bench for Friday's series opener. Tony Kemp will man right field and lead off.

Cubs' Nicholas Castellanos: Resting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castellanos is out of the lineup Thursday against the Pirates.

Ian Happ is starting in right field for Castellanos on Thursday as the Cubs -- who were eliminated from the playoffs Wednesday -- rest most of their starters.

Locked into a premium spot in a strong Chicago lineup, Castellanos should continue to produce at a high level the rest of the way.

Castellanos has been a hitting machine since joining the Cubs at the trade deadline, as he now has 12 multi-hit efforts in 22 games with the team. The 27-year-old outfielder is locked in as the No. 2 hitter in a strong lineup and should continue posting good counting stats if he keeps swinging the bat like this.
