Rotowire: Mar 4 / 9:20a ET
News: Castellanos (hand) checked out fine and will start at third base Wednesday, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Impact: Castellanos took a pitch off the hand in Tuesday's game, but it was just ruled a contusion, so it comes as no surprise that he's back in the lineup. He should be fine moving forward barring an unforeseen circumstance.

News: Castellanos took a pitch off of his left hand Tuesday and suffered a contusion.
Impact: Initially, it looked as though Castellanos could have suffered a tough break early in spring training, but X-rays came back negative, and the team is listing him as day-to-day. He could miss a few days with swelling in the hand, but it's not something that will hamper him in the long-term.

News: Castellanos will make a trip to Texas to work with Tigers defensive coordinator Matt Martin prior to the start of spring training, the Detroit News reports.
Impact: The primary emphasis for Castellanos will be improving his first step, as his defense graded out poorly with the move back to third base for the Tigers in 2014. He has the physical tools, including the arm strength, to become an adequate defender at the position. His second full season in Detroit will likely put him in the bottom third of the order, although the Tigers are seeking an option to replace Torii Hunter in the No. 2 hole since offseason acquisition Yoenis Cespedes doesn't carry an ideal profile for the role.
