From MLB.com’s Jason Beck comes word that the Tigers have officially purchased the contract of top prospect Nick Castellanos from Triple-A Toledo. Castellanos is not starting but will be available for Sunday afternoon’s series finale against the Indians.

The well-built 21-year-old was selected 44th overall in the 2010 MLB Amateur Draft out of Miami baseball powerhouse Archbishop McCarthy High School and was the 21st-ranked prospect in the sport this winter by both Baseball America and MLB.com. He played in the 2012 All-Star Futures Game in Kansas City.

Castellanos was moved from third base to the outfield this year as he made the jump from Double-A to Triple-A and will serve as outfield depth down the stretch for the AL Central-leading Tigers. Castellanos was batting .276/.343/.450 with 18 home runs and 76 RBI in 134 games this summer for the Toledo Mud Hens.

        Nobody listens to me anyways, why not try to talk sense to a bot?

        At least you aren’t drinking alone…

      • frank433 - Sep 1, 2013 at 3:42 PM

        It is still early, plenty if time to drink alone after the game.

        If you find yourself drinking with the Borg, you might need to reconsider your priorities.

    His batting line is a lot like Victor’s, it’s kinda low because it took them a month or so to get things going but have been on fire ever since.
