JUST IN: Nicholas Castellanos ties modern day record with Chicago Cubs

What’s the saying? “The grass isn’t always greener on the other side?”

Well, for Chicago Cubs outfielder Nicholas Castellanos, the grass is not only greener but when it comes to hitting bombs, his new home stadium must feel like heaven.

On Friday, Castellanos hit his 15th home run in his 40th game since being traded to the Cubs from the Detroit Tigers. The 15 home runs, according to the Elias Sports Bureau, ties the most home runs hit by a player in his first 40 games with the Cubs in the modern era.

Since being traded to the Cubs, Castellanos has not only hit 15 home runs, but he has 30 RBIs while posting an OPS of *1.007. (* heading into Friday’s game)

It looks like Nicholas is more than comfortable in his new home.
