Tigers | Ian Kinsler not starting Sunday

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.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is batting .324 in 34 at-bats this season but should only be used in FantasyScore as a source of salary cap relief.

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.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera out Wednesday

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

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera is out of the lineup Wednesday, Sept. 23, with 2B Ian Kinsler hitting third.

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.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler sitting vs. Royals

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 07:20:57 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Sept. 20. SS Andrew Romine is starting at second base and batting second against Kansas City Royals SP Kris Medlen Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Kinsler ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Sunday. He is having a huge second half with a .349/.375/.542 slash line, 41 runs, eight home runs and 31 RBI. Romine ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) enters with a .238 slugging percentage since the All-Star break and offers little upside for FantasyScore players Sunday. The only positive is batting second in the lineup.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler out of the lineup

Sun, 06 Sep 2015 08:21:26 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler is not in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Cody Anderson Sunday, Sept. 6. SS Andrew Romine will start at second base and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Kinsler ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) probably is just receiving a day off Sunday. Romine ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has gone hitless in his last seven games and should be avoided by owners on FantasyScore.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler sitting Tuesday

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 13:32:55 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25. SS Andrew Romine is starting at second base and hitting ninth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver.

Fantasy Tip: Don't automatically assume Romine ($2,300, 4.6% of cap), a light-hitting backup infielder, will suddenly find success against the soft-tossing Weaver. Weaver has actually been very solid since his return from a hip injury. Romine remains a low-end desperation deep sleeper pick.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler leading off

Sat, 15 Aug 2015 14:27:56 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler is leading off Saturday, Aug. 15, against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh.

Fantasy Tip: This is probably going to be routine with Miguel Cabrera back in the three-hole. Kinsler ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) loses some luster, but his .383-1-6 line this month is worth the price tag on FantasyScore.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler provides late heroics

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 23:16:53 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler went 2-for-5 with a double, two runs scored and two RBIs Wednesday, Aug. 12, against the Kansas City Royals.

Fantasy Tip: Kinsler ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has managed multi-hit games in five of his past seven games. He is a consistent contributor and must-start FantasyScore option at a mid-level price, especially while he is red hot.
