Phillies' Nick Castellanos: Catches breather Thursday
Castellanos is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Cubs.
Castellanos went 3-for-4 in Wednesday's game, but he returned from nearly a four-week absence the day before, so he will be held out Thursday for maintenance purposes. Expect him to get an at-bat -- or perhaps more -- at some point in Thursday's contest.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Nick Castellanos: Comes off IL on Tuesday
Castellanos (oblique) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list prior to Tuesday's game against the Cubs.
He missed almost the whole month with a right oblique strain. Castellanos is hitting .297 with five home runs in 37 games in the second half and did not go on a rehab assignment.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Nick Castellanos: No rehab assignment needed
Castellanos (oblique) will not need a rehab assignment and is expected to return sometime during next week's series against the Cubs, which runs Tuesday through Thursday, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Castellanos has missed the last three weeks due to a strained right oblique, but his recovery is evidently going well. He hit off a pitching machine Friday and apparently convinced the Phillies that he won't need any game action before returning to the team. The Phillies currently sit in playoff position but have yet to lock up a wild-card berth, so it makes sense that the team would want to have Castellanos back as soon as possible.... See More ...

Phillies' Nick Castellanos: Hitting against machine
Castellanos (oblique) hit off a high-velocity pitching machine Friday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Castellanos hasn't played in consecutive games since the end of August and has been slowly working his way back from an oblique strain. He expressed his desire to avoid a rehab assignment in Triple-A Lehigh Valley despite interim manager Rob Thomson's recommendation that he do so. It's uncertain what lies in Castellanos' near future, but a rehab assignment would figure to keep him out of the big-league lineup for another week.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Nick Castellanos: Working toward return
Castellanos (oblique) ran around the bases Tuesday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Castellanos was put on the injured list earlier this month with a right oblique issue. Interim manager Rob Thomson said that the "best-case scenario" for the veteran outfielder is a rehab assignment with Triple-A Lehigh Valley this weekend. If all goes well, there remains a possibility he can return before the end of the season.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Nick Castellanos: Takes dry swings
Castellanos (oblique) was able to take some dry swings Saturday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
Castellanos has been out with an oblique injury for the past two weeks. He paused his rehab work briefly earlier this week after he continued to feel sore while swinging, but he's been able to start back up again. While that's certainly a positive sign, he still has work to do before he's activated off the injured list.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Nick Castellanos: Still feeling sore
Castellanos (oblique) felt sore when swinging earlier this week and has backed off rehab work for a few days, Alex Coffey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Castellanos has been out since early September with an oblique strain. The Phillies haven't provided an updated timeline for his return, but time is getting short for him to play a meaningful number of games before the end of the regular season. He at least hasn't been fully shut down, as he's merely stopped swinging and is still able to throw and do work in the outfield.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Nick Castellanos: Sent to IL with oblique injury
The Phillies placed Castellanos (oblique) on the 10-day injured list Sunday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
Castellanos missed three games earlier in the week due to turf toe, but it's a right oblique strain that will now force him out until at least the second half of September. According to Gelb, the Phillies are classifying Castellanos' oblique injury as "mild," leaving the team optimistic that he'll be in line for a minimum-length stay on the shelf. Dalton Guthrie was summoned from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to provide depth in the outfield while Castellanos is out, but it'll be Nick Maton who receives the starting nod at Castellanos' usual spot in right field Sunday against the Giants, per Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia....

Phillies' Nick Castellanos: Dealing with oblique issue
Castellanos, who isn't starting Saturday against San Francisco, will undergo an MRI to determine the extent of a right oblique injury that he sustained Friday against the Giants, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Castellanos was removed from Friday's loss to the Giants in the bottom of the sixth inning since he apparently sustained an oblique issue during his second at-bat of the game. He recently missed three games with turf toe, and the extent of his oblique issue is unknown. It's not yet clear whether he'll be forced to miss additional time, but his MRI should help provide more details regarding his status.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Nick Castellanos: Getting MRI on oblique
Castellanos will undergo an MRI on his right oblique Saturday, which explains why he isn't in the lineup against the Giants, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Castellanos missed three games earlier in the week with turf toe, but he's now dealing with what appears to be an entirely separate injury. The outfielder reportedly felt something in his oblique during his second at-bat of Friday's blowout loss and wound up exiting the game. Whether or not he's at risk of missing an extended period should become clear once the results of his MRI are known.... See More ... See Less

Castellanos isn't in the lineup Saturday against the Giants.

Phillies' Nick Castellanos: Sitting again Wednesday
Castellanos (toe) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
The 30-year-old has sat out the past two games due to turf toe, and the Phillies will keep him on the bench Wednesday ahead of a scheduled day off Thursday. Castellanos should remain day-to-day heading into Friday's series opener in San Francisco. In his absence, Matt Vierling will receive another start in right field Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
