It hasn’t been the smoothest of times for the Detroit Tigers’ Nick Castellanos. An uncertain future mired with trade rumors and an admitted inner struggle hasn’t exactly equaled the best of circumstances. But he’s trying to make the most of it.

He blasted a solo home run in the bottom of the third inning against the Oakland A’s to tie the score at three. It was his fourth home run of the season.

The two teams are currently caught in a rain delay.
