San Francisco Giants Interested In Nick Castellanos

Per reports, the San Francisco Giants are interested in outfielder Nick Castellanos. He played last season with the Detroit Tigers and finished the season with the Chicago Cubs.

San Francisco surprisingly did not tender a contract to OF Kevin Pillar. If Castellanos were to sign, he would add to outfielders Mike Yastrzemsu, Steven Duggar, and Alex Dickerson.

Castellanos would bring the Giants some much-needed offense. Last season with Cubs and Tigers, he held a .289 BA and hit 27 HR. With the Tigers, he hit 11 HR and had a .462 slugging percentage. After joining the Cubs, he finished the campaign strong with 16 HR and a .656 slugging percentage.

Castellanos often mentioned the dimensions of Comerica Park in Detroit impacting his production. Oracle Park is just as bad as Comerica Park; Oracle Park was last in runs and home runs in 2018.

As a result, the Giants are making changes to the ballpark. They plan to move the bullpens to center and right-center field. In addition, ‘Triples Alley’, which is 421 feet away from home plate, will be moved in roughly 4-6 feet.

Castellanos would give the Giants a solid right-handed bat to go along with heavy left-handed lineup. He can play the corner outfield positions, as well as third base from time-to-time.
