Nicholas Castellanos Traded to Cubs

Nicholas Castellanos

Nicholas Castellanos is heading to the Chicago Cubs in exchange for Alex Lange and Paul Richan, source says.

Nicholas Castellanos has been with Detroit for all seven years of his career. He has a career line of .274/.324/.459 with the team and has a very similar line in 2019 at .273/.328/.462. Castellanos can play third base and the outfield, and none of those positions are out of the equation yet. He will give this Cubs team a lot of depth down the stretch, especially against left-handed pitching.

The Tigers are recieving former first-round pitcher Alex Lange. Through almost three minor league seasons, Lange has a career ERA of 4.62. He’s reached double-A, but was with high A Myrtle Beach at the time of the trade. Lange actually pitched pretty well in double-A with an ERA of 3.92 through seven starts. However, after being demoted the 23-year-old has a 7.36 ERA through 11 starts with Myrtle Beach this season.

Paul Richan is also heading to Detroit. Richan was also with high A Myrtle Beach at the time of the trade. He has an impressive 3.97 ERA through 17 starts with the club.
