Major League Baseball trade rumors: Cubs get Nicholas Castellanos from Tigers

His demeanor on the mound had been a constant source of debate in Chicago, and Edwards dealt with injuries and a demotion this season while posting a 5.87 ERA.

This season the seven-year veteran is batting.273 with 11 homers and 37 RBI.

The Tigers has sent 30 year old reliever Shane Greene to the Atlanta Braves pending the exchange of medical information, according to ESPN's Buster Olney. Castellanos is in the final year of his contract, and will be a free agent at the end of the season.


Paul Richan and Alex Lange are headed to Detroit in return, per Craig Mish of MLB Network (via Twitter).

Nicholas Castellanos is leaving the Detroit Tigers, just as he wanted to do. The Tigers will pick up approximately $500K of the $3MM left of Castellanos' salary, per Patrick Mooney of The Athletic.

Lange was a first-round pick of the Cubs in 2017 and has been pitching in Double-A. This move was likely made by Avila at the last second to seal the deal before time was up. He has a 10-5 record in advanced single-A baseball and a 3.97 ERA with 86 strikeouts and 18 walks this season. He had a 7.36 ERA in 47 2/3 innings before moving up. While the Tigers are laden with pitching prospect depth, it never hurts to have more arms.


Richan is a 22-year-old pitcher, ranked 16th in the Cubs system.

It was a insane end to the 2019 trade deadline not only for the Detroit Tigers but for the entire league.
