Has he been disappointing?

If you went to my bid limit (or beyond), you would say he has.

If you paid $10 or less, you would say he's been just fine thanks.

Keith Law at ESPN has this to say.

Castellanos has had a solid rookie season at the plate; while his wOBA of .314 ranks 20th of 25 qualifying third basemen this year (tied with Evan Longoria), he's also the youngest everyday player at the position in the majors...

He'd probably have spent half of 2014 in the minors if he was in a lot of other organizations, but the Tigers had a critical need for him after trading Prince Fielder for Ian Kinsler and moving Miguel Cabrera back to first base. Only three other position players aged 22 or younger have qualified for the batting title this year – one of them Mike Trout, who might not even be human -- so there's reason to be optimistic about Castellanos' bat. The bigger challenge will be improving his defense...

First homer of his career in the third inning. Straightaway center in Chavez Ravine, two runners on.

There were enough that I would have rather lost that duel. Not sure what he did with the money; I always have enough trouble tracking my own woes.

He did if there weren't other goodies left. Were there?

A great moment in our league -- he came up when I really wasn't in a position to go over $10 for another hitter, so we could lean back. It was clearly going over $13. It went over $15. Two gladiators glared at each other, with too much money left. $16! $17! And so to $21, as hooting and hollering filled the room. Nice player, but not sure the loser lost.
