Castellanos hit for plenty of power last season with the Reds, but it was far from the full breakout season many expected. His strikeout rate jumped to 28.5%, his batting average cratered to a career-low .225, and his wOBA was his worst mark since 2015. But Castellanos was also the victim of some pretty terrible luck, given that he had an expected batting average of .273 and a strong 46.7% hard-hit rate. With a full year in Great American Ballpark, Castellanos should fully live up to the hype he had coming into the 2020 season if he can just have even normal luck. Draft him with confidence as a likely strong four-category contributor.

Nick Castellanos doesn't opt out of contract with Reds

Nick Castellanos didn't notify the Reds that he was opting out of his contract.

Fantasy Impact

It means that he'll remain with the team in 2021. It's no surprise that Castellanos isn't opting out given the alarming early indications of the free agent market. Castellanos got off to a torrid start in 2020 but wound up hitting just .225 with 14 homers and a .784 OPS. He could wind up as an appealing bounce-back option in spring drafts next year.
