I am shocked -- absolutely stunned, really -- that Valverde is not the projected 2016 closer.

Kind of a fail there. He wasn't resigned.

I think the only thing that can hold back Bruce Rondon will be injuries...he has an absolute cannon for an arm.

They are but by 2016, Miggy can slide to DH and V-Mart should be gone so he can slide back to 3B.

Or have Fielder DH, Cabbie at first, and Castellanos at 3rd.

Is it that hard to transition from 3rd to SS? We could sure use Castellanos there.

I don't think he's quick enough for SS.

Best Strike Zone Discipline Nick Castellanos

He batted over .400 in the FSL this year, widely considered to be a difficult league for hitters.

There's no way we are going to still have Peralta in 2016. This will be his last unless he has an incredible turnaround.

I understand that. However, he swings at anything and everything. Vlad Guerrero hit for a high average and his strikezone discipline was terrible so I don't think those two things are mutually exclusive. Speaking as a Tigers fan, if he has the best strikezone discipline of any prospect in the entire organization, I'm concerned.

BA's current scouting report on Castellanos:


SCOUTING REPORT: One of the best pure hitters in the minor leagues, Castellanos has batted.316 while advancing quickly. With natural, loose, wristy actions, hes a rare righthander whose swing is described as pretty. He recognizes pitches well, lets balls travel deep and has no problems catching up to premium velocity. He makes loud contact and can hit all types of pitching. Castellanos has a tall, well-proportioned frame with wiry strength. His natural power is to right-center field, but he truly uses the entire ballpark. Though more advanced pitchers got him to chase sliders away in Double-A, he has shown the ability to make adjustments. Overall, he has the upside of a .300 hitter who could hit 40 doubles and 20-25 homers annually. Defensively, Castellanos is still looking for a permanent home. He came up as a third baseman, and still might end up there eventually, but the Tigers moved him to right field at midseason. He has earned mixed reviews at third base. Some scouts think he has stiff actions and can be too timid on balls, often getting caught in between hops. Others felt he was solid at the hot corner with quick reactions and above-average arm strength. In mid-July, the Tigers shifted him to right field. Hes still learning to read balls off the bat and to take clean routes on fly-balls. With more experience, he could be an average outfielder. He has below-average speed but moves well for his size and runs the bases well.
