Following a breakout 2018, Castellanos waited until April 25 to hit his first home run of 2019. Despite a tumultuous start, his slash line has quietly risen to .293/.343/.509 with 76 runs scored. He has notched eight homers and a 184 wRC+ in 23 games since getting traded to the Cubs. Playing every day in a better lineup as the No. 2 hitter, he's on track to nearly replicate last year's results. He's once again someone to trust in all formats.

Castellanos isn't doing nearly as much this season for the Tigers as we have grown to expect from him. He may end up with 90 runs scored, but with no one else in the lineup, his RBIs are vastly behind what we've seen in the past. Likewise, his power is virtually non-existent.

Castellanos' fantasy numbers are down this year across the board, and while he is due for a bit of positive regression in terms of his power output, he's unlikely to be a difference-maker in any offensive category, particularly in a weak Tigers lineup.
