He scooped five balls on the forehand, five on the backhand, then did it all over again. It could be something. It likely was nothing. Castellanos is the Tigers’ right fielder, of course. Nothing this season has suggested that will change in the final two months of the season, or going forward. Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire hasn’t entertained questions of the sort since April, when he made it loud and clear that Castellanos is the team’s right fielder. But how does Castellanos fit into the team’s defensive plans going forward? At face value, he just isn’t good defensively. … [Read more...] about Where does Detroit Tigers’ Nicholas Castellanos fit in: RF, DH, 1B?

Nick Baumgardner Detroit Free Press Published 2:47 p.m. UTC Aug 10, 2018 Michigan basketball was minutes into a controlled scrimmage Thursday evening when Ignas Brazdeikis showed everyone what he can do. A versatile 6-foot-7 freshman wing from Canada with a chiseled 215-pound physique usually found with a third-year player, collected a pass toward the top of the key and then drove against one of the best returning defenders in the Big Ten.
