In collaboration with Breaking T, we at BCB are celebrating that moment with this “Big Stick Nick” T-shirt:
Castellanos has provided just the boost the Cubs offense needed. He led the National League in hits (40) and extra-base hits (20) in August and has set a career high in doubles (47, 37 with the Tigers, 10 with the Cubs). He needs just five more home runs for a career high there, and has posted 1.3 bWAR for the Cubs in just those 30 games.
Hopefully, Castellanos will give the Cubs even more offense in the 25 games remaining this season.
