Nick Castellanos finished 2-for-4 with a homer and three RBI in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Red Sox.

Castellanos hit an RBI ground-rule double in the top of the fourth inning and a solo shot in the top of the sixth. He's shown some signs of life lately, but the 23-year-old third baseman still owns an ugly .245/.294/.393 overall batting line this season. Maybe he can put it all together down the stretch.

Nick Castellanos (face, finger) is in the Tigers' starting lineup Monday versus the Mariners.

Castellanos suffered a bruised cheek and a hyperextended ring finger when he got struck with a bad hop at third base on Sunday against the Orioles, but the young third baseman managed to avoid serious injury.

Nick Castellanos also hyper-extended his ring finger when taking a ball off his cheek during Sunday's loss to the Orioles.

The third baseman believes that the finger issue will affect him more than the contusion to his cheek bone. There's a good chance that he'll be forced to miss a couple of games, with Andrew Romine the likely beneficiary in terms of playing time.
