"I played third and he played first," said left fielder Castellanos, who went 1-for-2 with a run scored in his first Major League start. "When I was on first, it felt like I was doing baserunning drills back in my sophomore year at American Heritage. It's really funny how baseball works out. Now, we're on the Major League stage playing together."
Castellanos' first Major League hit came in the venue where he was the 2012 Futures Game Most Valuable Player. Castellanos, who is ranked No. 11 in MLB.com's Top 100 Prospects, had a homer, three hits and three RBIs in that Futures Game at Kauffman Stadium.
