​After yet another blunder in right field on Monday, Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire might have seen enough of Nick Castellanos in the outfield.


To keep his bat in the lineup, though, Gardenhire said that he is considering moving Castellanos over to first base.


Castellanos has been far and away Detroit's best hitter this year. In 91 games, he has hit .305 and slugged .523 with ​15 home runs and 56 RBI. This is coming after his breakout year in 2017, when he hit .272 with 26 home runs and 101 RBI.


While he has been a great hitter for Ron Gardenhire's squad, his defense has been downright atrocious. His subpar play in right field has cost Detroit 13 runs defensively.


If Gardenhire started playing Castellanos at first base, that would require franchise star Miguel Cabrera to move somewhere else on the diamond. Putting him at third base is no longer an option with his old age and declining health, meaning he would probably be made Detroit's primary designated hitter when he returns from ​injury.


Cabrera is no longer the Triple Crown winner he once was, but he still warrants a spot in the lineup upon his return. While his role will diminish, hopefully Castellanos can flourish at first base.
