Tigers reach $9.95 mil­lion deal with Castel­lanos

Tri-City Herald (Sunday) - - Television/Sports -

The Detroit Tigers avoided ar­bi­tra­tion with Ni­cholas Castel­lanos, agree­ing on a $9.95 mil­lion deal with the out­fielder for 2019.

Detroit also reached agree­ments with left­handers Matthew Boyd ($2.6 mil­lion), Daniel Nor­ris ($1,275,000) and Blaine Hardy ($1.3 mil­lion). Right-han­der Michael Ful­mer is the Tigers’ only ar­bi­tra­tion-el­i­gi­ble player with­out a deal. He asked for $3.4 mil­lion and was of­fered $2.8 mil­lion.

The 26-year-old Castel­lanos hit .298 last year with 23 home runs and 89 RBIs, when he made $6,075,000. He’s con­sid­ered a can­di­date to be traded, with the Tigers re­build­ing af­ter con­sec­u­tive 98-loss sea­sons.

Ful­mer, the 2016 AL Rookie of the Year, went 3-12 with a 4.69 ERA last sea­son, when he dealt with oblique and knee prob­lems.
