Nick Castellanos had his best game yet since the Tigers promoted him to Double-A Erie, going 3-for-4 with a home run, a triple and a double yesterday.
Castellanos, a 20-year-old third baseman, hit .405/.461/.553 in 55 games for high Class A Lakeland before the promotion, though he's hit just .273/.267/.432 and hasn't drawn a walk yet in 11 games since his move to Double-A.
Give it time though, because there's not much to worry about here. The only player in the Eastern League younger than Castellanos is Orioles shortstop Manny Machado. Castellanos may still need another year or two on the farm, but he projects as a potential all-star third baseman in his prime.
