Here's When Nick Castellanos Will Make Phillies Spring Training Debut
It's been 10 years since the Philadelphia Phillies made the MLB playoffs. The front office has been on a mission to stop that trend with some important free-agent signings this offseason, none more notable than Nick Castellanos.
Fresh off of an All-Star campaign, Castellanos signed five-year, $100 million contract with the Phillies and brings a wealth of power in the lineup and edge on the field.
Phillies fans are eager to see their newest All-Star outfielder in action, and we now have confirmation when exactly that will go down.

Phillies insider Todd Zolecki reported Castellanos is scheduled to make his Spring Training debut on Sunday, March 27. He'll start in left field when Philadelphia takes on the Toronto Blue Jays at TD Ballpark in Dunedin, FL at 1:07 p.m. ET.
Castellanos' addition gives Philadelphia one of the fiercest corner outfield combinations in the league. Thinking of a Phillies lineup that boasts Bryce Harper, Castellanos, Kyle Schwarber, J.T. Realmuto and Rhys Hoskins will put fear in the hearts of opposing pitching staffs around baseball.
