A little more pricey than Brogdon and Naquin, Kent, but here's someone who is off to a good start. When you touch them all more often than you walk back to the dugout, you are definitely seeing the ball.

For the record: in six games, Nick has fanned twice and hit four homers (also two doubles and a triple).

It seems 2020 never happened.

Nick Castellanos (OF) CIN - Apr. 04

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=768664

Castellanos went 2-for-4 with a triple, a three-run home run and two total runs scored in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: A day after being ejected because he "re-engaged the pitcher in unnecessary fashion" after scoring on a wild pitch (crew chief Jim Reynolds' words), Castellanos broke the game open with his second homer of the young season. Castellanos already has six hits, including four for extra bases, through three games in 2021.

$25 in CBS, came when the crazy bidding had subsided some (+17 for the 10 surrounding bids).  You'll have to pay as if 2020 never happened.

Rotoman nudged me. JD Bolick pushed me. LVW shoved me.

AP4 is getting a significant bump in the March 4 update.

Pick or Pan?

Major Pick for me. In 2020 he had

1. Career best walk rate 7.9%

2. Kept his elite LD rate going 26.0%

3. Extremely unfortunate BABIP vs lefties .237

4. Career best HR/Fly rate 23.7%

5. His best Exit Velocity 91.0 and Barrel% 16.0% since statcast started tracking it and barrel% was in top 5% of all players

6. Overall BABIP on the unfortunate side 

I wouldn't be shocked if he has his career year in 2021.
