MLB: Nick Castellanos throws the stone at the Reds; Will you regret leaving?

All Star right fielder, Nick Castellanos, has already rejected the qualified offer of the Cincinnati Reds, little more than a formality after he opted out of the remaining two years of his contract.

However, the 29-year-old did not close the door upon his return to Cincinnati and told reporters that he would listen to any offers from the Manager David Bell’s Reds:

Yes of course. Why shouldn’t I? “I feel like there are still a lot of valuable pieces that it’s really good to win with. Jonathan India … Jesse Winker is freaking out, finding out who he is, finding out what kind of father he wants to be, he’s doing a great job at it. Joey Votto just reinvented himself. We still have pitching. We have parts. Why not entertain him? “

Regardless of Castellanos’ kindness, a return to the Reds seems highly unlikely. Cincinnati started the offseason by separating from two veteran collaborators (Tucker Barnhart and Wade Miley) for little more than financial relief, and CEO Nick Krall has spoken of “(aligning) our payroll with our resources.”

It would be nothing short of shocking if Cincinnati later turned around to make a serious run at Castellanos, whom MLB Trade Rumors projects he will sign for $ 115MM over five years.

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Bachelor of Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services at Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and after a few days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
