Tigers | Ian Kinsler stays hot

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 13:30:16 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler went 2-for-4 with two runs, a double, an RBI and a walk during the Tigers' 7-3 win over the Oakland Athletics Thursday, April 28.

Fantasy Tip: Kinsler has now registered a hit in 18 of 20 games this season and sits with a .345/.376/.529 slash line. He has also padded the counting stats by collecting 20 runs, four home runs, 13 RBI and a stolen base. At 33, Kinsler doesn't offer the power-speed combo he did in his prime, but his strong start has him among the best fantasy options at the keystone.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler back in lineup Tuesday

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 13:39:59 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler (flu) is back in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 26, against the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Kinsler should be reinstated to fantasy lineups immediately in daily leagues, otherwise there is little disruption in weekly or annual contests. He is worth putting in your lineup, with a .320 average, four runs and eight hits in the past seven games.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler scratched from lineup

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 14:46:47 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler (illness) has been scratched from the lineup Monday, April 25, against the Oakland Athletics due to flu-like symptoms. 2B Mike Aviles will take his place at second base and bat ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Bad break for Kinsler, who is out to a wonderful start this year and has even recorded at least one hit in all but two games he's played in. Aviles will get the start as a result, but isn't worth utilizing in any daily formats. After all, he's picked up just one hit thus far in 12 at-bats. Jose Iglesias, however, is worth a look, as he gets bumped up into the leadoff spot this evening.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler wallops second HR

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 15:30:55 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler belted his second home run of the season Tuesday, April 12, versus the Pittsburgh Pirates. He finished the afternoon 2-for-4 with three runs scored and one RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Like a few other Tigers hitters, Kinsler is out to a scorching start, as he's now slashing .370/.414/.630. Considering how explosive Detroit's lineup is, the former Texas Ranger has to be considered one of the best second baseman to own at the moment, seeing as how he hits at the very top of the order. It looks like he'll top 100 runs for the sixth time in his career.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler has big '16 debut

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 22:03:00 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler finished 3-for-6 Tuesday, April 5, opposite the Miami Marlins, producing his first home run of the year, two runs scored and four RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Owners who have Kinsler have to like what they received in his first game of the year, filling up the stat sheet. Although he only had 11 homers last season, Kinsler is still someone capable of getting to 20 long balls while delivering a relatively solid batting average and double-digit stolen bases. Continue to fire him up and hope this leads to a nice April.

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 11:30:39 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Frankie Montas Sunday, Oct. 4. INF Josh Wilson will play second base and bat ninth.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler, Victor Martinez out

Fri, 02 Oct 2015 15:28:01 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler and 1B Victor Martinez are not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale Friday, Oct. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Sale ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) presents a low-end matchup for the Tigers, and FantasyScore players cannot start anyone from the Detroit lineup with confidence Friday, especially with Miguel Cabrera ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) limited to pinch-hitting duty for the season.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler sitting against Rangers

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 14:36:13 -0700

Detorit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler is not in the starting lineup Monday, Sept. 28. SS Andrew Romine is starting at second base and batting eighth against Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Kinsler ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is having a monster second half with a .335/.357/.513 slash line, and checks out as a second-tier option at second base in all fantasy formats. Romine ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) owns a .515 OPS since the All-Star break, and he is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore Monday.

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 06:51:29 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Kinsler ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has a .263-2-10 line this month and faces a solid matchup against youngster Frankie Montas. He is a solid FantasyScore option.

Tigers | Victor Martinez out for Game 2

Mon, 21 Sep 2015 13:31:21 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez is not in the lineup for Game 2 of the doubleheader against the Chicago White Sox Monday, Sept. 21. 2B Ian Kinsler is serving as the designated hitter and 2B Josh Wilson is starting at second base and hitting eighth against Chicago White Sox SP Erik Johnson.

Fantasy Tip: Kinsler ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) isn't a bad click on FantasyScore in the nightcap. He's hitting .300 (21-for-70) with two home runs and nine RBI in September. Wilson ($1,900, 3.8% of cap), a light-hitting backup infielder, should be ignored everywhere.
