Padres designated OF Alex Castellanos for assignment.

It's the third time he's been designated for assignment since the end of last season. Castellanos could get claimed on waivers again, but if he isn't he'll have the opting of declaring free agency.
Apr 25 - 4:15 PM

Alex Castellanos smacked his first home run of the Cactus League season in Saturday's loss to the Dodgers.

He got the start at third base in this one, and with injuries to Chase Headley and Cameron Maybin this spring, Castellanos has a legitimate shot at making the Padres in a utility role.
Mar 15 - 8:18 PM

Padres claimed OF Alex Castellanos off waivers from the Rangers.

Castellanos has landed in his fourth organization since October. With Cameron Maybin (biceps) slated to begin the season on the disabled list, Castellanos should have a shot to crack the Opening Day roster.
Mar 7 - 2:44 PM

Rangers designated OF Alex Castellanos for assignment.

The move clears a spot for the newly-signed Joe Saunders on the active roster. Castellanos has already been with two organizations since the end of last season and he could soon be on the move again.
Mar 5 - 10:10 AM

Rangers claimed OF Alex Castellanos off waivers from the Red Sox.

Castellanos was designated for assignment by Boston earlier this month to clear a 40-man roster spot for the return of Mike Napoli. A dynamic athlete, the 27-year-old Castellnos batted .257/.347/.468 with 19 homers and 19 steals in 105 games this past summer at the Triple-A level. He could see action in the majors next year with Texas.

Red Sox designated OF Alex Castellanos for assignment.

The move was made in order to clear room on the 40-man roster for Mike Napoli. It's the second time in less than two months that Castellanos has been designated for assignment, as the Red Sox picked him up in a trade after the Dodgers DFA'd him. He hit .257/.347/.468 with 19 home runs and 19 stolen bases in 105 games in 2013 at the Triple-A level.

Red Sox acquired OF Alex Castellanos from the Dodgers in exchange for OF Jeremy Hazelbaker.

Castellanos, 27, was designated for assignment by the Dodgers last week. He hit .257/.347/.468 with 19 home runs and 19 stolen bases in 105 games this summer at the Triple-A level but is one year older than Hazelbaker. It's basically a swap of quad-A players.

Dodgers designated OF Alex Castellanos for assignment.

The move clears a spot for Mike Baxter on the 40-man roster. Castellanos was acquired from the Cardinals in the Rafael Furcal deal in 2011 and appeared in 24 games with the Dodgers over the past two seasons. He could draw some interest on waivers.

Dodgers recalled OF Alex Castellanos to Triple-A Albuquerque.

He'll serve as an extra bat off the bench for the final two weeks of the regular season. The 27-year-old outfielder hit .257/.347/.468 with 19 homers, 61 RBI and 19 stolen bases in 105 games at Triple-A.

Dodgers recalled OF Alex Castellanos from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Castellanos will provide some outfield depth with Matt Kemp and Carl Crawford on the DL and Scott Van Slyke banged up. He's batted .270/.359/.491 with nine homers, 28 RBI and eight steals at Albuquerque this season.
Tue, Jun 11, 2013 06:42:00 PM

Dodgers optioned OF Alex Castellanos, RHPs Stephen Fife and Josh Wall and INF/OF Elian Herrera to Triple-A Albuquerque; reassigned INF/OF Alfredo Amezaga, RHPs Kevin Gregg and Peter Moylan and C Matt Wallach to minor league camp.

Castellanos hit four homers during Cactus League play, but it wasn't quite enough to earn an Opening Day roster spot. With the exception of Wallach, all of the demoted players have a good shot to spend some time in the majors this season.

Alex Castellanos homered for the second straight game in Wednesday's 11-7 win over the Cubs.

Castellanos launched a solo blast off of Hisanori Takahashi in the seventh inning a day after taking the Giants' Ramon Ramirez deep. The 26-year-old is competing for a bench job this spring but will likely function as depth at Triple-A.

Dodgers recalled INF/OF Alex Castellanos from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Castellanos is 3-for-22 (.136) in two stints with the Dodgers this season. He'll function as a right-handed bat off the bench down the stretch.
