One of the few bright spots in the Detroit Tigers lineup this season has been Nicholas Castellanos.  He has been recognized as being named a finalist for the Silver Slugger Award.

According to the Detroit Tigers,  Castellanos is a finalist for the award which is given to the best offensive players at each position in both leagues.

The last Tigers player to win this award was Miguel Cabrera in 2016.   Former Tigers outfielder, Justin Upton won last year as a member of the Los Angeles Angels.

Castellanos leads the team in most offensive categories.  He is also among the league leaders in multi hit games and doubles,  along with being near the top of the league for hitting in the month of September.

We'll see if he can win this year but it will be tough with many of the current top players playing in the outfield.

The Tigers 2018 season is winding down as they have two series left on the road in Minnesota and Milwaukee.
