Tigers | Yoenis Cespedes could be back Saturday

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 13:56:18 -0800

Updating a previous report, Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes (back) could return to the lineup Saturday, March 7, according to manager Brad Ausmus. Cespedes' back tightened up on him, and he was a late scratch from the game Thursday, March 5.

Fantasy Tip: The injury isn't expected to be serious, but continue to check back for updates on Cespedes' status. He has topped 70 runs, 20 home runs and 80 RBIs in each of his three seasons in the league. While he hit .292 and stole 16 bases in 2012, those are likely going to be career-high marks and aren't his go-to categories. Joining a potent Detroit lineup should help his fantasy stock, and Cespedes is unlikely to last long on draft day. He is a viable target in the early middle rounds after the top-tier outfielders come off the board.

Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes told media he would love to stay in Detroit for the long term, saying "this is a good team now and will be for a lot of years to come."

Fantasy Tip: The window on a World Series may be closing soon, but Cespedes is correct for the most part. Depending on how Comerica Park's dimensions affect his bat Cespedes' value could increase a bit, but he is still a solid pick in most AL and mixed leagues. Also keep in mind he played several years in Oakland, long considered a pitcher's park.
