Tigers | Alex Avila starting at 1B

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 15:06:32 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Alex Avila is starting at first base and hitting seventh against Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi Tuesday, July 28. That allows C James McCann to start behind the plate. McCann is hitting sixth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Avila ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) and McCann ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) don't really move the FantasyScore needle very much. Avila is hitting only .188 (21-for-112) with three home runs on the year. McCann has swung the bat a bit better (.289-4-24) and is probably the more intriguing value play at catcher at a slightly more expensive price.

Tigers | Detroit interested in Mike Leake?

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 10:56:19 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake could draw interest from the Detroit Tigers if they determine this week that they have a realistic shot at the American League Wild Card race.

Fantasy Tip: A trade of Leake ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) to the American League Central is unlikely to change his fantasy value all that much. If you're in an AL-only league and in need of upgrades, you should definitely be looking to save your FAAB money for players that cross over in trades later this week.

Tigers | Buck Farmer starting Friday

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 15:43:45 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Buck Farmer will be the starting pitcher against the Baltimore Orioles Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Farmer ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has made a few appearances for the Tigers this season and has struggled in each appearance. Owners on FantasyScore should avoid Farmer until he is able to record a few solid outings.

Tigers | Shane Greene loses rotation spot

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 15:30:38 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Shane Greene will be moved to the bullpen, according to manager Brad Ausmus.

Fantasy Tip: Greene ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has allowed 17 earned runs in 13 2/3 innings this month with more walks (seven) than strikeouts (four) during that span. Greene does not much fantasy value as a relief pitcher, so he could be dropped in leagues.

Tigers | Andrew Romine in the lineup

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 14:35:03 -0700

Detroit Tigers SS Andrew Romine will start in first base against Tampa Bay Rays SP Nathan Karns Monday, July 27, and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Romine ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is hitting .273 with three RBI in limited playing time this month but is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Tigers | David Price may become available

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 13:59:16 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP David Price could become available in a trade if the team struggles in their series against the Tampa Bay Rays this week, according to sources. The team is currently looking to acquire players at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Price ($9,100, 18.2% of cap) likely would become a popular trade target for contending teams if he becomes available before the trade market. He has gone 9-3 with a 2.31 ERA and 134 strikeouts in 20 starts. Price should be a solid starting option against most teams.

Tigers | Alfredo Simon to work on bike

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 09:33:54 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon (groin), who left his start Saturday, July 25, with a slight groin injury, will work on a bike instead of jogging as he prepares for his next start.

Fantasy Tip: Simon ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) allowed at least four earned runs in all but his latest start over the weekend in the month of July. That means he's a bad option on FantasyScore his next time out, especially coming off an injury.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera to take BP

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 09:27:25 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera (calf) ran on an anti-gravity treadmill before the game Sunday, July 26, and he will take batting practice with the team before their series against the Tampa Bay Rays starts Monday, July 27, according to manager Brad Ausmus.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) could be back in the middle of August if everything goes according to plan. As one of the best hitter's in the game, he can still make a pretty big impact for the remaining month and a half of the season as long as he doesn't have any recurrence of calf problems.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera due back soon

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 05:43:57 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera (calf) could be back around Aug. 15, from his calf injury.

Fantasy Tip: This would put Miggy on the front end of his timetable to return and could keep the team from becoming sellers at the trade deadline. Keep Cabrera stashed on the DL.

Tigers | Nick Castellanos drives in three

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 18:39:17 -0700

Detroit Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and a run scored in a 5-1 win over the Boston Red Sox Saturday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Castellanos ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has had three multi-hit games in his last five, logging three homers and eight RBI during the stretch. He could make a solid low-priced play at FantasyScore again Sunday against Boston starter Eduardo Rodriguez, who brings a 4.64 ERA into the game.

Tigers | Alex Avila playing first base

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 11:23:01 -0700

Detroit Tigers C/1B Alex Avila will start at first base and bat seventh against Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright Saturday, July 25, with C James McCann starting behind the plate and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: This will be Avila's ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) seventh appearance and fifth start at first base this season. He is only batting .196 in 46 at-bats this month and is only hitting .161 away from Comerica Park, so he should be avoided in FantasyScore. McCann ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is batting .417 with a home run and seven RBIs through 36 at-bats this month and is worth consideration for FantasyScore lineups.

Tigers | Rajai Davis playing center field

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 11:19:10 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Rajai Davis will bat leadoff and play center field against Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright Saturday, July 25. OF Anthony Gose is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is hitless in his last 12 at-bats and is 5-for-33 (.152) during the month of July. He should be avoided in FantasyScore today.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera takes batting practice

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 07:47:29 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera (calf) was able to participate in some batting practice Friday, July 24, and also took some throws at first base.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) is still probably still a few weeks away from returning and may need to go on a rehab assignment. Cabrera is one of the best players in the league and probably will be a starting option most nights on FantasyScore when he returns to the lineup.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera not cleared yet

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 14:53:57 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera (calf) said he is making progress in his recovery from a calf injury but has not been cleared for baseball activities at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) probably is still several weeks away from returning, so owners should continue to monitor his progress. Marc Krauss ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Jefry Marte ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) will continue to share time at first base but are not strong options on FantasyScore.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler on a tear

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 19:42:34 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler notched his fourth straight multi-hit game Thursday, July 23, finishing 2-for-6 a double and a run scored in a 3-2 loss to Seattle Mariners.

Fantasy Tip: Kinsler ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has two homers, four doubles, four RBI and seven runs scored over the last four games, and he has looked sharp since the All-Star break. His price tag won't break the bank at FantasyScore, so feel free to stick with his hot bat until he cools off.
