DETROIT (WXYZ) -- Don't count Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos among those getting caught up in playing "Pokemon Go."

"All my friends tried it, and all they do is walk around with their heads down in their phones looking for Pokemon," Castellanos told Brad Galli. "Congratulations, does that make you any more successful in life? No. But people love that game, so it is when it is."

When Galli jokingly responded that Castellanos will make a great dad, Castellanos continued expressing his critique of the game and its players.

"I'm all for it, but everything's in moderation, you know? We were on a boat during the break, and my buddy's driving the boat, trying to look for Pokemon in the water. It's ridiculous."

Pitcher Jordan Zimmermann was also asked about the Pokemon craze, and had a much tamer response, stating that he wasn't very familiar with it.
