Tigers outfield prospect Nick Castellanos has endured some growing pains at Triple-A Toledo. The highly touted prospect is batting .232 with three home runs and 10 RBI through 31 games.

“It’s a learning experience,” Castellanos said, per MLB.com, “the highest competition I’ve played against. The game’s a little bit faster. I feel like I’m making really good strides in the outfield. Just trying to find a little bit more consistency at the plate. I’ll have one good game where I’ll feel great, then I’ll have like two games where I can’t find it. It’s just an adjustment period right now.”
