The Cincinnati Reds have been more than aggressive on the market in the last two years in their effort of ending a seven-year postseason drought. They made another statement, signing former Tigers and Cubs outfielder Nicholas Castellanos to a four-year contract, according to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal.
The stars of MLB free agency - Gerrit Cole, Stephen Strasburg, Anthony Rendon - have all signed. The next tier of free agents are yet to move. Outfielders have been under the radar so far, with leading free agents Nicholas Castellanos and Marcell Ozuna the only players frequently popping up on the rumour mill.
Nicholas Castellanos completed an impressive turnaround to his 2019 campaign after he was traded from the Detroit Tigers to the Chicago Cubs. Now, after being said to have improved his defensive skill set, he could be a vital part of a not so deep free agent outfield group.
Despite recently being designated for assignment by the Houston Astros, Tyler White is the sort of player that plenty of MLB teams should be interested in. The Detroit Tigers are one of those teams.
It’s going to be a long season. There’s little intrigue in this Tigers roster and the best prospects, like last season’s number one overall pick Casey Mize, are unlikely to appear in the Majors in 2019.
