Tigers | Yoenis Cespedes out of the lineup

Mon, 18 May 2015 12:01:33 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes (thumb) is not in the starting lineup against the Milwaukee Brewers Monday, May 18. OF Rajai Davis is batting sixth and playing left field Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Cespedes ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday. He played Sunday, May 17, after he hurt his thumb in the game Saturday, May 16. His absence Monday is likely just an opportunity to rest the slugger. Davis ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) could be a sneaky low-priced FantasyScore option Monday. He has 12 runs and 5 stolen bases with an .845 OPS over his last 50 plate appearances.

Sun, 17 May 2015 14:04:22 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) could have been a scratch, but after he stayed in the game on Saturday it comes as no surprise that he's back. Continue playing him as if nothing happened.

Tigers | Yoenis Cespedes on cold streak

Tue, 12 May 2015 12:20:17 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes hasn't driven in a run in 11 games, the longest stretch of his career without a run batted in.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has 10 hits during this 11-game stretch and he has scored five runs, so he isn't quite drawing zeroes in your lineup. Still, be a little cautious with Cespedes, especially with tough matchups.

Tigers | Yoenis Cespedes owns Jose Quintana

Thu, 07 May 2015 11:06:36 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes has hit home runs in each of his last four at-bats against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana. Cespedes is 6-for-8 (.750) with a double, four home runs and nine RBI against Quintana in his career.

Fantasy Tip: It's an extremely small sample size, but anytime a hitter has that much success with home runs against a pitcher, you take notice. For that reason, Cespedes ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) becomes an attractive option at FantasyScore today, despite the fact he's hitting just .185 (5-for-27) against lefties this year.

Tigers | Yoenis Cespedes has career day

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 13:48:36 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes had a pair of home runs and six RBI against the Chicago White Sox on Sunday, April 19. It is a career high for Cespedes and the most RBI by a Tiger since Omar Infante in September 2013.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) appears to be adjusting beautifully to his surroundings in Detroit. It may have been just the pitching matchup (Jose Quintana), but he is definitely a great pickup at a lower salary with the threat of some power.

Tigers | Yoenis Cespedes back on track

Thu, 19 Mar 2015 07:13:35 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes (quadriceps) is back on his regular schedule after he was shut down a couple of days due to a quadriceps injury.

Fantasy Tip: There is no word on whether he was leg pressing his friends again to cause the flare-up, but Cespedes ($5,200; 10.4% of your cap) has a ton of RBI and run potential in this lineup. His home run output could dip a little in the big ballpark, but Oakland's spacious confines didn't hinder him much. He's a low-end first outfielder on FantasyScore.

Tigers | Yoenis Cespedes to miss two games

Sun, 15 Mar 2015 11:42:08 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes (quadriceps) will take batting practice Sunday, March 15, but is not on the travel roster for the team's next two exhibition games in Jupiter, Fla.

Fantasy Tip: This appears to be a minor setback for Cespedes, who said he is feeling better. He is likely to be taken in the middle rounds of universal fantasy drafts, although he has had some trouble remaining healthy this spring.

Tigers | Yoenis Cespedes to take BP

Sat, 14 Mar 2015 07:35:41 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes (quadriceps) is scheduled to take batting practice Saturday, March 14.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes suffered the injury Thursday, March 12, but it looks like a minor injury. Cespedes has posted solid home run and RBI totals over the last several seasons but could hurt owners with his batting average. Cespedes probably will be an option in the early middle rounds of drafts this season.

Tigers | Yoenis Cespedes day-to-day

Thu, 12 Mar 2015 13:33:07 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes (quadriceps) quadriceps injury was deemed minor by head athletic trainer Kevin Rand Thursday, March 12. Rand said Cespedes is day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes has topped 70 runs, 20 home runs and 80 RBIs in each of his three seasons in the league, and expect those benchmarks to be met again in 2015. His batting average and stolen bases are another story, though. It is unlikely Cespedes deliveries a plus-return in either category, and there is potential for him to post a sub-.250 batting average. Still, those counting stats warrant attention in the early middle round on draft day.

Tigers | Yoenis Cespedes leaves game

Thu, 12 Mar 2015 11:01:50 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes (quadriceps) left the game with left quadriceps tightness Thursday, March 12, and he's listed as day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes has already dealt with a back injury this spring, too. The injuries appear minor, but it's something to keep an eye on. Cespedes has hit at least 22 home runs and drive in 80 RBI in his three MLB seasons, but his batting average fluctuates, he doesn't take many walks, and Comerica Park might hurt his power numbers. He's a safe fantasy baseball commodity if priced right, but don't overvalue him just because he plays for the Tigers now.
