Tigers | V-Mart, Maybin out Thursday

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 07:18:56 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez and OF Cameron Maybin are out of the lineup Thursday, June 23. 3B Nick Castellanos is hitting cleanup, and SS Jose Iglesias hits second. OF Andrew Romine is hitting ninth in center field, and C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is playing first and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Castellanos has cooled a bit with a .274-3-8 line this month, but he's a high-end consideration behind Miguel Cabrera. Iglesias is hitting .356 this month, and he has high upside ahead of Miggy. Romine and Salty aren't strong DFS flyers against Adrian Sampson.

Tigers | Victor Martinez lifted for runner

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 18:42:00 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez (undisclosed) appeared to tweak something in his lower body while running from first to third on a double by 3B Nick Castellanos in the bottom of the eighth inning. Martinez was lifted for a pinch runner despite being at third base.

Fantasy Tip: The injury did not appear serious, but he did wince in pain with either a hip or quadriceps injury, perhaps, although that's speculation. We'll keep an eye on it after the game for further details.

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez went 3-for-5 with three solo home runs in a 10-4 win over the Kansas City Royals Thursday, June 16.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez has been battling a sore knee and had been dealing with a power dip. However, he has maintained an excellent batting average and should be starting in all formats.

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 has minor knee injury

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 14:51:43 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Tigers DH Victor Martinez (knee) had an MRI exam on his left knee, but there were no major issues.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Martinez to return to the lineup sooner than later, but it is worth noting that minor and nagging injuries are part of the package at this point of the 37-year-old veteran's career. Martinez has still been rock solid thus far and worth starting in all fantasy leagues after posting 24 runs, nine home runs, 35 RBI and a .333/.381/.519 slash line to start the season.

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 | Victor Martinez finds the seats

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 20:49:45 -0700

Detroit Tigers DH Victor Martinez went 3-for-5 with a double, home run and two RBIs Friday, June 3, against the Chicago White Sox to improve his season average to .344.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez is on a roll lately, posting at least one RBI in 10 of his past 13 games, driving in 12 runs during the stretch since May 22. He remains a must-start in all fantasy formats.
