Cubs hoping Castellanos can aid woes vs. lefties

Nicholas Castellanos, pulled from the field just moments before Detroit Tigers' game in Anaheim, has been traded to the Chicago Cubs for two young pitchers. "So I was like, 'OK, finish the season strong, '" Castellanos said.

The 27-year-old Castellanos is hitting.273/.328/.462, with 11 home runs.

Jesse joined ESPN Chicago in September 2009 and covers the Chicago Cubs for ESPNChicago.com and ESPN Radio 1000.

In all, it's not a huge haul to give up for a guy like Castellanos, who was arguably the top hitter available on the market and a potential impact bat.

Castellanos posted a career.783 OPS with 103 home runs and 208 doubles in 837 games. The Tigers will pick up approximately $500K of the $3MM left of Castellanos' salary, per Patrick Mooney of The Athletic.

"All clubs have a model of what they would and would not do", Avila said. Richan has been at the High-A level all year, where he's through 93 innings of 3.97 ERA ball with 8.3 K/9 and 1.7 BB/9.

Lange is a 23-year-old righty who started the season in Class A-Advanced but moved up to Double-A, where he's got a 3.92 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 28 strikeouts in 39 innings.
