Brad Ausmus said Nick Castellanos wants to hit second, but the Tigers dont want their young third baseman to change his approach at the plate.

He'll do what he can to maximize the opportunities for players who want and need at-bats, and that includes Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez, who are playing for Team Venezuela.
