Tigers | Anibal Sanchez sharp in debut

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 14:52:53 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez (1-0) allowed just three hits and two walks in 6 2/3 shutout innings to beat the Minnesota Twins Wednesday, April 8, while striking out six. It was Sanchez's first start since August of 2014.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) was a strong daily fantasy play today going up against the Twinkies, and he didn't disappoint. Sanchez could be in line for another strong season in 2015 and should be a decent FantasyScore option more times than not.

Tigers | Justin Verlander to open on DL

Thu, 02 Apr 2015 09:52:49 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) will open the season on the disabled list for the first time in his career, but he's unlikely to miss much time, according to manager Brad Ausmus. The move will be backdated to March 28, and Ausmus is "optimistic" that Verlander can make a start in the sixth game of the season April 12 against the Cleveland Indians. SPs Anibal Sanchez and Shane Greene will now be moved up in the rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) was throwing very well before his last spring start was interrupted by right triceps tightness. There's a glimmer of hope for his fantasy owners if he can get past this setback, but it'd probably be wise to avoid him at FantasyScore his first time out against the Tribe.

Tigers | Justin Verlander scratched Thursday

Mon, 30 Mar 2015 10:50:35 -0700

Updating previous reports, Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) will not make his spring start against the New York Yankees Thursday, April 2. Verlander said he remains sore Monday, March 30, after suffering from cramping in his right triceps muscle during his outing last Friday. SP Anibal Sanchez will likely be the team's No. 2 starter to open the season if Verlander is not ready. Verlander said he is day-to-day right now.

Fantasy Tip: The Tigers will likely err on the side of cautious with Verlander ($6,500, 13.0% of cap), who dealt with injuries for much of last season, too. Consider him a shaky option at FantasyScore to start the season if he's skipped, but Verlander could be a nice matchup play in 2015.

Tigers | Anibal Sanchez fans six

Thu, 19 Mar 2015 15:24:19 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez threw five shutout innings with six strikeouts and two hits allowed Thursday, March 19.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez had back-to-back rough outings before Thursday, so a solid showing is an encouraging sign heading into the season. Sanchez is a low-end No. 2 fantasy starter, but he looks a lot better as your No. 3, especially considering he has never topped 200 innings pitched in his career. Additionally, it is safe to consider the 10.0 K/9 he returned in 2013 to be an anomaly, as something closer to his 7.3 career mark is what fantasy owners should expect in 2015.
