The Detroit Tigers have traded right fielder Nick Castellanos to the Chicago Cubs, reports Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press. The 27-year-old has not officially finalized the deal, but several other outlets are confirming the transaction.Castellanos will enter free agency this fall, making him an obvious trade candidate for one of the worst teams in baseball. He signed a 1-year, $9,950,000 contract with Detroit last offseason after emerging avoiding arbitration the last two seasons.According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Castellanos was acquired for pitching prospects Alex Lange, a former first-round pick, and Paul Richan. Richan was 10-5 with a 3.97 ERA in 17 starts for high-A Myrtle Beach.His averages are down from 2018, his best statistical season. He is hitting .273 for 11 homers and 37 RBIs. His on-base percentage is just .328, which is slightly above his career average.He earned a $3 million pay bump after last season’s performance. He batted .298 with an OBP of .354, while driving in 89 runs and blasting 23 home runs. He was also the American League’s triples leader in 2017.This is the second move for the Tigers as they near the trade deadline. They sent closer Shane Greene to the Atlanta Braves. Robert Murray of The Athletic says the Tigers will receive Joey Wentz and Travis Demeritte for their troubles.
