Tigers | Jarrod Saltalamacchia in vs. White Sox

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 14:36:47 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Chicago White Sox SP Jacob Turner Friday, July 22. C James McCann is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Saltalamacchia is 10-for-50 through his past 20 games with nine runs, two home runs and seven RBI. He's a potential flier in daily contests, but like McCann, neither are anything more than low-end options in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only leagues.

Tigers | James McCann resting Thursday

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 11:53:21 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 21. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is behind the plate and is batting seventh against Chicago White Sox SP James Shields.

Fantasy Tip: Despite Shields evening out of late, he's prone to allowing the long ball, which makes Salty a consideration as a deep sleeper at catcher tonight in DFS games. Saltalamacchia is hitting just .201 on the season but does have nine home runs in 144 at-bats.

Tigers | James McCann, Tyler Collins sitting

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 12:47:51 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann and OF Tyler Collins are not in the starting lineup Monday, July 18. INF/OF Mike Aviles is starting in right field and batting seventh, and C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco Monday.

Fantasy Tip: McCann is just 7-for-37 in July and should be viewed as a low-end option in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only leagues. Saltalamacchia is a potential flier in daily contests Monday, but he's got very little seasonal value. Aviles remains a viable depth option in cavernous mixed and AL-only formats, while Collins also has fleeting value in those deep settings.

Tigers | Jarrod Saltalamacchia hits walk-off HR

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 13:23:15 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Jarrod Saltalamacchia clubbed a two-run, walk-off homer off Kansas City Royals RP Joakim Soria in the ninth inning to lead his team to a 4-2 victory.

Fantasy Tip: Saltalamacchia has been virtually nonexistent in fantasy since hitting six home runs and driving in 15 runs in April. Even with his theatrics on Sunday, he only has three homers and 12 RBI since since that torrid spell while playing sporadically behind James McCann. Owners can ignore this result for now and leave them on the waiver wire, as McCann will likely return to the lineup on Monday and continue to make most of the starts.

Tigers | James McCann resting Sunday

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 08:28:15 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann is out of the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura Sunday, July 17. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia will bat eighth and start behind the plate. In addition, OF Justin Upton is batting sixth and playing left field, with OF Tyler Collins hitting seventh and starting in right field.

Fantasy Tip: Saltalamacchia and Upton haven't been hitting enough recently to warrant starting in DFS. Collins is 3-for-8 in his career against Ventura but is only batting .148 through 27 at-bats in 2016, making him nothing more than an inexpensive flier option.

Tigers | James McCann, Jose Iglesias out

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 08:09:00 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann and SS Jose Iglesias are not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez Saturday, July 9. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup. SS Andrew Romine will start at shortstop and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Saltalamacchia has gone hitless in his six at-bats this month and is hitting only .200 this season. Owners should be able to find other players to use in their lineups. Romine is also hitting .200 so far this season and can also be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Tigers | James McCann sitting out Wednesday

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 09:10:16 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 6. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is behind the dish and is hitting eighth against Cleveland Indians SP Josh Tomlin.

Fantasy Tip: Salty has occasional pop with eight home runs in 131 at-bats, but he's hitting just .206 on the season. He's a sleeper catcher in DFS, but Tomlin has been very good this year. Look to fade Saltalamacchia.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera on the bench

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 09:41:20 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera is not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Blake Snell Saturday, July 2. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia will start at first base and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Saltalamacchia has six hits and three hits in his last six games but is hitting .209 this season and is not a strong fantasy option.

Tigers | Jarrod Saltalamacchia in again

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 12:13:07 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is starting behind the plate and hitting eighth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi Thursday, June 30. C James McCann will start on the bench again.

Fantasy Tip: Salty went 3-for-3 with a home run and double Wednesday afternoon, and he could see more starts moving forward if he stays hot. However, he's barely hitting .206 on the year despite notable pop occasionally. He's more of a low-end daily pick and appeals only to owners desperate for a catcher in two-catcher and AL-only leagues.

Tigers | James McCann resting against Fish

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 09:13:47 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 29. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia receives the start and is batting eighth against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler.

Fantasy Tip: Salty does have seven home runs and 20 RBI on the year in limited time behind the plate, but he's batting a putrid .187 on the season. He has pop but is a lottery ticket in DFS action as a deep sleeper pick to save salary cap space.
