Tigers | J.D. Martinez takes a seat

Fri, 06 May 2016 13:48:10 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF J.D. Martinez is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 6. 3B Mike Aviles is starting in right field and is hitting in the two-hole against Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels.

Fantasy Tip: Aviles doesn't offer much (.231, one RBI in 24 at-bats) but does have two home runs in only five at-bats against Hamels in his career. It's too small a sample size to bank on, though, and even with the cushy lineup spot, Aviles makes for a low-end deep sleeper play in DFS action.

Tigers | Detroit shakes up lineup

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 12:51:51 -0700

Detroit Tigers OFs J.D. Martinez and Justin Upton were flopped in the batting order against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray Wednesday, April 27. Martinez is now hitting second in front of 1B Miguel Cabrera, while Upton is dropped to fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Both Upton (.208/.235/.299 with one HR) and Martinez (.278/.346/.403 with two HR) are undererforming in the early going, so Brad Ausmus is looking for a way to get Detroit's offense going. You're probably not sitting either hitter in traditional fantasy formats, but you shouldn't be spending up on either of them in daily contests, at least until they start to break out of their early funks.

Tue, 15 Mar 2016 14:25:02 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF J.D. Martinez hit his third homer in as many days in the spring game Tuesday, March 15, and he now has four long balls in Grapefruit League action.
