Nevin said that Castellanos was expected to be in the lineup for tonight's game against Norfolk, but he was taken out of the lineup as a precaution.
"Nick was a little sore when he went to hit [today]," Nevin said. "He did some hitting off a tee and was OK, but when he 'let it go' in BP he felt it a little bit. So I took him out of the lineup as a precaution -- we want to err on the side of caution."
Castellanos did a variety of work before the game, including shagging balls in the outfield and taking grounders at shortstop. Those "grounders" weren't any kind of a story, though ... it was in fun and included Hens OF Ben Guez.
Castellanos has not played for the Mud Hens since he was hit on the right forearm by a pitch from Indianapolis RHP Jameson Taillon Saturday.
This season Castellanos has hit .278 in 118 games for Toledo, collecting 13 home runs and 64 RBIs.
