In the Nick of time

In yesterday's draft the Tigers used their top selection on Nick Castellanos (center above at last year's East Coast Pro Showcase in Lakeland), a right-handed hitting high-school shortstop from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. He's 6' 3", 190 pounds, and the Tigers see him moving to third base as a pro.

According to the Free Press, Castellanos has committed to the University of Miami, but the Tigers might have a hometown edge in trying to sign him: his mother is from Detroit, her family still lives there, and his father is a retired firefighter in Detroit.
