LF,RF - CIN
Expert NoteView More Notes
Castellanos' numbers were continually deflated batting in the middle of a bad Tigers lineup and in a home park that greatly depressed power numbers. A move to Cincinnati should be just what the doctor ordered, and allow Castellanos to continue to build on his monster finish with the Cubs last year. While he may not hit the 50 homers he was on pace for with the Cubs or total the same 1.000 OPS, his numbers should look much closer to his 2019 second half than his first.

Nick Castellanos doesn't want to be used as a designated hitter
Nick Castellanos told the Cincinnati Enquirer that he doesn't want to DH for the Reds this season.
“I don’t want to DH,” Castellanos explained. “I chose to come to the Reds, first and foremost, I believe they can win. But also, I like being in National League where I get to play defense every day. A goal of mine is to become a better and better defender every year that I play – every game that I play is probably a more appropriate answer.” The Reds have a plethora of outfielders and will surely be using one of them to DH most days. Castellanos isn't the best defender, which likely would've made him a candidate to serve that role before these comments. Nick Senzel, Jesse Winker, and Shogo Akiyama are expected to help fill out Cincinnati's outfield this year. Winker will likely wind up as the designated hitter based on those options.
