Castellanos to start in Triple-A All-Star Game

TORONTO -- Nick Castellanos was a snub from the Futures Game, losing out in the fan vote for the final spot on the U.S. Team. The Toledo Mud Hens' sweet-swinging outfielder and Tigers top prospect was not overlooked in fan balloting for the Triple-A All-Star Game.

Castellanos, last year's Futures Game Most Valuable Player and one of the youngest players in the league at age 21, will join fellow Futures Game alumnus Billy Hamilton and Joey Terdoslavich in the starting outfield when the International League All-Stars face their counterparts from the Pacific Coast League in Reno, Nev., on Wednesday, July 17 -- the day after the MLB All-Star Game.

Jordan Lennerton, who will represent the Tigers in the Futures Game on Sunday, July 14, also made the IL All-Stars. The Mud Hens' first baseman was one of 17 reserves selected by league managers and officials.
