Fantasy Tip: Kinsler ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has two homers, four doubles, four RBI and seven runs scored over the last four games, and he has looked sharp since the All-Star break. His price tag won't break the bank at FantasyScore, so feel free to stick with his hot bat until he cools off.

Tigers | Big game for Ian Kinsler

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 20:50:44 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler went 2-for-4 with a home run, a double, three RBI and two runs scored in a 4-2 win over the Minnesota Twins Thursday, July 9.

Fantasy Tip: Kinsler ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has just three homers all year, but despite the power outage, he is still providing a solid combination of runs scored and RBI. He isn't an elite option at second base at this point, but feel to use him at FantasyScore when he draws a favorable matchup.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler out Wednesday

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 10:00:09 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 8. SS Andrew Romine is starting at the keystone and hitting eighth against Seattle Mariners SP J.A. Happ. OF Rajai Davis is batting leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: Romine ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is hitting well this year (.320-2-8) in 75 at-bats, but he remains a low-end shortstop option on FantasyScore. Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is a fine value pick today while facing a lefty. He's hitting .299 (20-for-67) with one of his two home runs against southpaws.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler moved to leadoff spot

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 13:11:07 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler is batting first against Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison Friday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: Hutchison has a 8.92 ERA and a 5.66 FIP on the road this season, so Kinsler ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has a plus-matchup in that regard. Still, Kinsler is far from a lineup lock for FantasyScore players given his unimpressive current form (.208/.278/.292 slash line over the past 17 games).

Tigers | Ian Kinsler still in two-spot

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 13:59:19 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler will remain near the top of the lineup Saturday, June 6, against the Chicago White Sox. Kinsler will hit second once again, this time against LHP John Danks.

Fantasy Tip: Kinsler ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is 3-for-9 in his last two games, but he is hitting just .220 off lefties for the season. Kinsler is a career .302 hitter against southpaws, but he'll carry some measure of risk on FantasyScore until he finally overcomes his early-season struggles. That said, while hitting immediately in front of Miguel Cabrera, Kinsler will have a high ceiling, making it difficult to fade him completely.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler up, Jose Iglesias down

Fri, 05 Jun 2015 14:58:55 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler is returning to the two-hole in the batting order against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Friday, June 5, while SS Jose Iglesias moves back down to the No. 9 spot in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Kinsler ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) had two hits yesterday to break out of his funk, but he's still hitting .111 (5-for-45) with seven strikeouts since May 22. A move back to the top of the order may help him continue to turn things around, and he's more attractive there to FantasyScore players. You may want to be safe and continue sitting him tonight, though, since he's just 10-for-46 (.217) with no homers and one RBI against lefties this year. Iglesias ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is 10-for-31 (.323) since May 22 but has only one home run and an RBI in that span. He's due for more correction on his inflated average this summer, and hitting at the bottom of the lineup makes him a weak play.

Tigers | Jose Iglesias, Ian Kinsler moved in lineup

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 12:49:41 -0700

Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias is batting second against the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday, June 3. 2B Ian Kinsler is hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Iglesias ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) usually bats at the bottom of the lineup and Kinsler ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has hit second, but Chris Iott of MLive.com reports manager Brad Ausmus is shaking up the lineup. These two will still contribute, but Iglesias' value may have risen a bit because of where he is in the lineup.
