Fixed. Many apologies, Troy. For reasons that we still haven't figured out, some people aren't getting access to the subscriber page automatically when they pay. Just send me an email, cc to Peter. Whoever sees it first will let you in.

Alex, I renewed my subscription a  few weeks ago, but just noticed I do not have access to the Excel updates.  Can you fix that for me, please?

Nick Castellanos (OF) PHI - Mar. 26
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=11448

Castellanos will make his spring debut Sunday afternoon against Toronto, reports Jim Salisbury of NBC Philadelphia.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Castellanos will make his first appearance with the team after signing a five year, $100 million contract last week. The outfielder will start in left field Sunday and likely hit in the middle of the Phillies lineup.

So obviously Philly will mash quite a bit more this year versus their mediocre hitting last year.  But adding Castellanos and Schwarber to that already  bad defense?  I think I want the over on runs scored for every game they play next year.

From MLBTR...  adding Castellanos to an already defensively challenged team whose signature offseason addition thus far was the defensively challenged Schwarber creates its own concerns. Castellanos has improved his defense in right field since first moving off third base earlier in his career, but he still rates as a well below-average defender in either corner. The 2021 Phillies already ranked last in the Majors in Defensive Runs Saved, and that wasn’t an issue unique to last year’s team. The Phillies have ranked among the worst defensive teams in baseball for more than a half decade now, regularly trotting out subpar defenders and embarking on curious defensive experiments that have not proven fruitful (e.g. Rhys Hoskins in left field).

Lands with the Phillies ... 4 years 100 million, no opt outs. Phillies, Braves, Dodgers, Mets are now the four to beat. Would have loved Castellanos in Milwaukee but it is what it is.

No, Nick isn't going to starve. Especially not now with the universal DH. But the qualifying offer definitely dampens the enthusiasm. Players really want to get rid of it and owners really want an international draft, so here's one trade I'll predict will happen fairly soon.

In any case, there's a reason the Reds aren't talking to Nick. They're glad he didn't take the Q.O.

The Reds have not been in contact with Castellanos or his agent, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. "We have not been engaged with his representatives," GM Nick Krall said in his first press conference following the lockout.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: This isn't a big surprise -- Castellanos exercised the opt-out clause in his contract and declined the Reds' qualifying offer subsequent to that. But because he still hasn't signed, there was perhaps a glimmer of hope prior to Saturday's comments by Krall.

If they do this, it's as a DH. He's barely passable in RF in a normal sized stadium. If he played OF in that monster stadium, they'd have to play a buck-short and a 3 man infield to have a chance to stop the other team.

Maybe the Rockies sign him for 5 years $125M and then trade him and $25M to another team, just because they are the Rockies and that's how they do business.
