Castellanos Gets Second Opportunity in All-Star Game

Nick Castellanos gets his second opportunity to perform in the  All-star game. His first go around, Nick Castellanos was representing the Cincinnati Reds back in 2021. Now two years later, the 31-year-old will be back under the bright lights. This time representing the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Detroit Tigers drafted Nick Castellanos with the 44th pick in the second round of 2010. He played in the all-star futures game in 2012 and was named MVP. Nick Castellanos spent seven seasons with the Detroit Tigers then he was traded to the Chicago Cubs. He only spent half of the year as a Cub. He spent two years with the Cincinnati Reds.

Castellanos Gets Second Opportunity in the  All-Star Game

He is now in his second year with the Phillies. He had an “ok” year in year one. What makes him different from last season? Why get the nod to the all-star game? 

For me, it’s obvious he’s not chasing bad pitches like last season. He can read where pitchers wanna go with their pitching. He’s become a doubles machine. He’s at 26 doubles, 12 Home runs, 54 RBIS with 101 hits. Number the 14th overall offensive player so far. It doesn’t matter where he is in the lineup. He produces. He is one of the main reasons why the Phillies are still in contention for a wildcard spot.
