Tigers | Steven Moya not in lineup Saturday

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 10:04:32 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Steven Moya is not in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco Saturday, June 25. INF/OF Mike Aviles will play right field and bat seventh. In addition, SS Jose Iglesias is back in the lineup, batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Moya is batting .391 with three home runs over the past week but he will give way to Aviles Saturday, who is hitting .295 with four RBI over the past four weeks. He should be viewed as nothing more than an inexpensive flier option in daily fantasy contests. Iglesias is batting .351 with eight RBI this month and makes a productive source of cap relief in DFS at the shortstop position.

Tigers | Steven Moya sitting vs. Seattle

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 12:32:21 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Steven Moya is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 21. INF/OF Mike Aviles is starting in right field and batting seventh against Seattle Mariners SP James Paxton Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Moya is expected to receive the majority of starts in right field with J.D. Martinez out with a broken elbow. Moya should be owned in deep mixed and AL-only leagues at this point. Aviles is nothing more than a low-end option in cavernous mixed and AL-only setups. He's a risky flier in daily contests Tuesday, too.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler on the bench

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 09:59:04 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler is not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Chris R. Young Sunday, June 19. 3B Mike Aviles will start at second base and is batting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Aviles has received more playing time recently and is hitting .306 with three RBI this month. He should be a starting candidate for desperate owners in daily fantasy leagues.

Tigers | Cameron Maybin sitting vs. Royals

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 13:34:31 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Cameron Maybin is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 16. INF/OF Mike Aviles is starting in left field and batting ninth against Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy Thursday. Tigers SS Jose Iglesias has also been promoted to the two-hole with Maybin out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Sub out Maybin where you can in seasonal leagues, and Aviles is nothing more than a desperation start in all fantasy formats. Iglesias, however, has a strong track record against left-handed hurlers and makes an excellent option in daily contests Thursday, especially hitting second in the lineup.

Tigers | Victor Martinez out again

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 14:03:38 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez (knee) is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale Wednesday, June 15. OF Justin Upton will serve as the designated hitter, while 3B Mike Aviles will start in left field and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Aviles has been playing better lately with a .294 average and one RBI in the last seven days but does not appear to be a strong option since he is hitting only .111 against left-handed pitchers this season.

Tigers | Victor Martinez not playing

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 13:17:44 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez (knee) is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Miguel Gonzalez Tuesday, June 14. 3B Nick Castellanos will serve as the designated hitter, while 3B Mike Aviles will start at third base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Castellanos is hitting .200 with two home runs and four RBI over the last seven days but should be a fine starting candidate in most leagues. Aviles is hitting .261 with two RBI this month, but owners likely will be able to find better options to use in their lineups.

Tigers | Victor Martinez, James McCann out

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 12:09:33 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez and C James McCann are not in the starting lineup Monday, June 13. SS Mike Aviles draws into the lineup in right field and is batting ninth, while C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is doing the catching and batting seventh against Chicago White Sox SP James Shields.

Fantasy Tip: It's likely just a routine off day for V-Mart and McCann. Aviles has very little power and is extremely limited for fantasy purposes hitting low in the order. Salty is a low-end catching consideration in daily leagues but could be worth a sleeper selection for his power (seven homers) against a pitcher that has struggled to keep the ball in the yard.

Tigers | V-Mart, Maybin out Wednesday

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 08:15:59 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez and OF Cameron Maybin (wrist) are out of the lineup Wednesday, June 8. OF Mike Aviles is hitting second, and 1B Andrew Romine is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin's wrist is now a concern after missing his third straight start. Aviles and Romine are hitting under .200 and don't have extensive history against R.A. Dickey. They're not much of DFS flyers today.

Tigers | Justin Upton resting Saturday

Sat, 04 Jun 2016 10:09:05 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Justin Upton is receiving the day off against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale Saturday, June 4. INF/OF Mike Aviles will play left field and bat eighth. In addition, 3B Nick Castellanos has returned to the starting lineup and will bat sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Upton leads the majors with 75 strikeouts through 196 at-bats and is hitting just .177 with one home run and four RBI over the last four weeks. Aviles is batting only .170 through 47 at-bats and is not a recommended fantasy option this afternoon against one of baseball's best pitchers.

Tigers | Nick Castellanos receiving night off

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 12:57:05 -0700

Detroit Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 3. INF Mike Aviles is starting at third base and batting seventh against Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon Friday.

Fantasy Tip: As expected, Castellanos has cooled down over his past 20 games with a .241/.268/.443 slash line. However, he is still a solid option at the hot corner and hitting in the heart of a strong lineup. Remain patient with the emerging hitter. Aviles owns a .182/.234/.227 line for the season, but he also went 2-for-4 with a run, a double and an RBI Thursday, June 2, so he could be a viable flier in daily contests Friday.
