Two offseasons ago, the Detroit Tigers were interested in signing their right fielder to a contract extension. The right fielder was J.D. Martinez, who was coming off a breakout season in 2015. Back then, the Tigers offered Martinez four years and $88 million. Martinez’s camp rebuffed that offer, instead signing a two-year extension which would cover his final two seasons of arbitration-eligibility. This time, that rightfielder is Nick Castellanos. Late in the regular season, the Tigers approached Castellanos’ camp about a contract extension, general manager Al Avila said at the Major League Baseball Winter Meetings on Monday afternoon.
