Detroit Tigers news, rumors and injuries
Sat, 03 Oct 2015 15:07:53 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Moya ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is just 2-for-15 (.133) on the year and isn't a good FantasyScore option against Erik Johnson.

Fantasy Tip: The knee injury partially explains Simon's ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) ineffectiveness for much of the season. He will finish the year with a 13-12 record and 5.05 ERA over 31 starts, with 201 hits allowed over 187 innings. Simon allowed five or more earned runs in 11 of those outings.

Fantasy Tip: The Tigers are limiting Cabrera ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) down the stretch as he chases yet another batting title. Make sure he's in the lineup first this weekend before picking him on FantasyScore. Romine ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) should be avoided against Sale this evening.

Fantasy Tip: Sale ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) presents a low-end matchup for the Tigers, and FantasyScore players cannot start anyone from the Detroit lineup with confidence Friday, especially with Miguel Cabrera ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) limited to pinch-hitting duty for the season.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Martinez ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. He has heated up at the dish lately, though, with a .324/.375/.559 slash line over his past 40 plate appearances. FantasyScore players should view Collins ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) as a mid-priced flier and far from a lineup lock Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Season owners chasing counting stats are faced with a tough call over the final days of the season with Cabrera ($6,200, 12.4% of cap). He isn't going to play every day, so you may want to surf your waiver wire for upgrades. FantasyScore players have no reason to be excited about Avila ($3,300, 6.6% of cap). He owns a .192 batting average and .291 slugging percentage for the season, after all.

Fantasy Tip: Castellanos ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game. Time is running out for that to occur if he doesn't come back immediately.

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez and C James McCann are not in the lineup against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Cole Hamels Tuesday, Sept. 29. 1B Jefry Marte is starting at first base and batting sixth, while C Bryan Holaday is catching and hitting eighth.
Fantasy Tip: Both Marte ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) and Holaday ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) won't give you much of a chance at cashing out on FantasyScore if you gamble on them against Hamels tonight.

Detroit Tigers DH Victor Martinez (quadriceps) left the game Monday, Sept. 28, against the Texas Rangers due to a sore left quadriceps, according to the team. He will be re-evaluated Tuesday, Sept. 29.
Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any lingering effects of his injury.
Mon, 28 Sep 2015 22:09:32 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) is not a recommended play in FantasyScore, as he could start and be pulled early, or might just be used off the bench. His outlook for the remainder of the season is not good.
Mon, 28 Sep 2015 16:16:22 -0700
Fantasy Tip: There's no reason you should have held onto Iglesias in traditional formats with the likelihood of him playing again this season very slim. Ignore him on FantasyScore, as well.
Mon, 28 Sep 2015 14:36:13 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Kinsler ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is having a monster second half with a .335/.357/.513 slash line, and checks out as a second-tier option at second base in all fantasy formats. Romine ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) owns a .515 OPS since the All-Star break, and he is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore Monday.

Detroit Tigers manager Brad Ausmus will return for the 2016 season despite speculation that he would be fired at the end of this season. General manager Al Avila confirmed that Ausmus will return after Detroit's game Saturday, Sept. 26. The rest of the Tigers coaching staff will return, too. This year will be the first time in five years that they will not be in the playoffs.

Fantasy Tip: Buxton ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) owns oodles of upside, but his .197/.236/.265 slash line shouldn't be ignored. Still, it is an A+ matchup against Wolf ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) who has allowed a 5.64 EA through his past 215 1/3 innings. Buxton checks out as a potential flier for FantasyScore players.
Sun, 27 Sep 2015 07:15:14 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) owns a .267/.314/.429 slash line against right-handed pitchers this season, and he checks out as a potential value play hitting in front of the best hitters in the lineup. Still, Santana ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) has been excellent of late with just six runs allowed over his past five outings, so Davis is far from a lineup lock.
