Nick Castellanos News
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Nick Castellanos didn't record a hit during Thursday's 2-0 loss to the San Diego Padres. He also struck out once over four at-bats and is now 5 for his last 34. In 37 games, the 30-year-old is slashing .271/.335/.443 with five home runs, 21 RBI, 18 runs, and no stolen bases. Castellanos has the potential to be one of the top sluggers in the game after a 34 HR season in 2021, especially while playing his home games at Citizens Bank Park. Fantasy managers should stay patient and expect him to heat up.
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Nick Castellanos (wrist) underwent X-rays, which came back negative after being hit by a pitch in the wrist during Thursday's game against the New York Mets. He was diagnosed with a bruised right wrist. The 30-year-old will be re-evaluated on Friday and is day-to-day. He went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run before leaving. Roman Quinn replaced Castellanos in Thursday's contest and would see an uptick in playing time if the Phillies outfielder misses any time.
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Nick Castellanos (wrist, forearm) exited Thursday's game against the New York Mets after getting hit by a pitch in the wrist/forearm area. The 30-year-old went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run before leaving. He was examined by the trainers and removed from Thursday's game for precautionary reasons. The severity of Castellanos's injury is unknown, and the 30-year-old is considered day-to-day. Roman Quinn replaced Castellanos in Thursday's contest and would see an uptick in playing time if the Phillies outfielder misses any time. Stay tuned for further updates.
Nick Castellanos was a big disappointment last season, as he hit a career-low .225, and also fashioned a career-worst 28.5% strikeout rate. Raising his Launch Angle from 14 to 16.5 produced 14 homers in 60 games, but the HR/FB% of 23.7 was a big outlier and cannot, realistically, point to anything encouraging for 2021, although it did fill out his frustrating 2020 profile as a whiffing, added pop type. There is faith in his ability to bounce back, as evidenced by his ADP of 85. When you consider his xBA of .273 and a career-low .257 BABIP, last season does indeed carry some indicators of being an aberration. Castellanos is a career .274 hitter with a lifetime K% of 23.3, so a regression back to a much better BA and respectable OBP (career-low .298) should be realistically expected in 2021. Castellanos knows he was a flop last year, as he decided not to opt out of his contract with Cincinnati. He is projected to hit second in the Reds lineup, so it appears the team is counting on him to rebound, and you can do the same.
