Fri, 20 May 2016 20:19:52 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera went 3-for-5 with two home runs, three RBI and two runs scored in a 7-5 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays Friday, May 20.

Fantasy Tip: Don't look now, but Cabrera has his average up to .308, and he is on pace for 32 homers and 95 RBI. His early-season power outage is a thing of the past.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera in line for big game?

Tue, 17 May 2016 14:20:31 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera is hitting .448 with five home runs and 12 RBI in 29 at-bats over the last five years against Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes. The two face each other Tuesday, May 17.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera should never come out of your traditional lineups. He's definitely worth paying up for in daily games given his success against Hughes recently, too.

Tigers | Nick Castellanos out of lineup

Wed, 11 May 2016 12:16:39 -0700

Detroit Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 11, in a National League ballpark. 1B Miguel Cabrera is moving to third base, while 1B Victor Martinez gets the start at first against Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer.

Fantasy Tip: While facing Scherzer, most might be hesitant to use Cabrera or V-Mart in daily leagues, but they can still return value as contrarian picks at high prices. Scherzer has been vulnerable to the long ball with 1.9 home runs allowed per nine innings in 2016.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera out Tuesday

Tue, 10 May 2016 12:47:03 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 10, against the Washington Nationals. 1B Victor Martinez will bat third against Nationals SP Joe Ross.

Fantasy Tip: Two items are at play here. First, Cabrera turned his ankle slightly sliding into second base during the team's game on Monday. Although it looked like he was all right, manager Brad Ausmus may have wanted to give him a night off. In addition, there is no designated hitter because the interleague game is in an NL park. Victor Martinez is in a small slump himself, with a .174 mark in the last week, but he is one of the few hitters to post a .300 average or better for the season and is definitely worth playing in a fantasy lineup.

Tigers | Four hits for Miguel Cabrera

Sat, 07 May 2016 18:10:30 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera went 4-for-5 with a run scored in a 10-5 loss to the Texas Rangers Saturday, May 7.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera has his average up to .286, and while his power numbers are down, he should still be one of the better fantasy first basemen when all is said and done.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera finally powers up

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 21:16:22 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera went 4-for-4 with a double, two home runs and four RBIs Monday, April 25, against the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Miggy entered the game with just one homer and a total of six RBIs, so this was a much-needed game to calm his fantasy owners, at least for one day.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera out vs. Cleveland

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 07:15:05 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera is not in the starting lineup Sunday, April 24. SS Andrew Romine is starting at first base and batting eighth against Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera has been a little slow out of the gate with a .210/.300/.306 slash line through his first 70 plate appearances. Remain patient with the fantasy star, as he paced the American League with a .338 batting average in 2015. Romine should be avoided in all fantasy formats Sunday. Carrasco has allowed just eight hits and two runs through his past 14 1/3 innings, and it projects as a daunting matchup for Romine.

Tigers | Victor Martinez to play 1B?

Mon, 14 Mar 2016 09:12:27 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez could play some first base this year in order to let 1B Miguel Cabrera serve as the designated hitter in some day games following night games, according to manager Brad Ausmus.

Fantasy Tip: It makes sense to keep Cabrera as fresh as possible. V-Mart could even regain first base eligibility, which would be great for fantasy owners. The fact that Martinez is a DH only in most fantasy leagues will drive his price down to levels that will make him a nice value in the late middle rounds. When healthy, he's a solid source of average and decent power.
