Detroit Tigers C James McCann is not in the starting lineup Friday, Sept. 4. C Bryan Holaday is behind the plate and is hitting eighth against Cleveland Indians SP Josh Tomlin.
Fantasy Tip: You shouldn't be tempted to use Holaday ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) under any circumstances on FantasyScore this evening. There are other cheap catchers better equipped to return value as salary cap relievers tonight if you choose to go that route.

Detroit Tigers C James McCann is not in the starting lineup against Masahiro Tanaka Sunday, June 21. C Bryan Holaday will start at catcher and is batting seventh in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: McCann ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) should return to the lineup in the next game or two. Holaday ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is hitting only .214 in limited playing time this month and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Detroit Tigers C James McCann is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Adam Warren Friday, June 19. C Bryan Holaday will be the starting catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: McCann ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Holaday ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is hitting .259 with eight RBI in limited playing time this season, but owners probably could find better options to use.

Detroit Tigers C James McCann is out of the starting lineup Thursday, June 18. C Bryan Holaday is in his place.
Fantasy Tip: McCann ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is likely out because the Tigers went 13 innings with the Cincinnati Reds and the Tigers want a catcher in there who may have fresh knees. Holaday has a .286 average in the past week, but there are likely catchers out there with a similar price who may make better alternatives.

Detroit Tigers C Bryan Holaday is starting at catcher and hitting seventh in the order Sunday, June 14, against the Cleveland Indians and RHP Corey Kluber. C James McCann will come out of the starting lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Holaday ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) has just two hits since going 3-for-5 in his season debut. With the difficult matchup against Kluber, Holaday won't even be an option for those looking to punt the catcher position.

Detroit Tigers C Alex Avila is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 15, against the Seattle Mariners. C Bryan Holaday is starting behind the plate and batting eighth.
