Tigers | Jose Iglesias out of the lineup

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 07:51:06 -0700

Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Saturday, July 4. SS Josh Wilson will start at shortstop and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Iglesias ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Wilson ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has been solid at the plate in his limited playing time, but owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use.

Tigers | Alex Avila will start at 1B

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 07:37:39 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Alex Avila will start at first base against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Saturday, July 4, and is batting fifth in the lineup. C James McCann will start at catcher and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Avila ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) will be a candidate to be the regular first baseman with Miguel Cabrera out but is receiving the first start at the position. He is just coming off the disabled list, so owners on FantasyScore may want to see him in a few games before using him. McCann ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has recorded seven hits in each of his last three games and could be a starting option on FantasyScore.

Tigers | Victor Martinez not an option at 1B

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 07:36:27 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez will not be an option to fill in at first base while 1B Miguel Cabrera (calf) is sidelined.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) likely will remain as the team's designated hitter and will be an important piece in the lineup because of Cabrera's injury. He has at least one hit in nine of his last 11 games and also has 10 RBI during that span. Owners on FantasyScore should consider Martinez as a starting option most nights.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera out six weeks

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 07:29:48 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera (calf) will miss around six weeks because of a Grade 3 calf strain, according to manager Brad Ausmus.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to monitor Cabrera's ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) progress to see when he will be able to return to the lineup. Alex Avila ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) will receive the first chance to start at first base, but it is not known who will fill the role on a regular basis. Owners on FantasyScore probably should pass on Avila for the time being.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera officially placed on DL

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 06:24:57 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera (calf) was placed on the disabled list with a left calf strain Saturday, July 4.

Fantasy Tip: This was expected, and Cabrera ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) leaves a big hole in the heart of the Tigers' lineup and fantasy rosters. Seasonal owners will want to check back for updates on his recovery timeline and be thankful, in terms of replacement value, first base is arguably the deepest position in most formats. Victor Martinez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is likely to receive the majority of starts at first base while Cabrera is sidelined. Andrew Romine ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Bryan Holaday ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) could also work into the mix occasionally.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera could land on DL

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 19:51:42 -0700

Updating previous reports, Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera (calf) will not play against the Toronto Blue Jays Saturday, July 4. Manager Brad Ausmus said he could land on the 15-day disabled list but the team is awaiting a doctor's opinion.

Fantasy Tip: The team will know more about Cabrera's ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) status once the results of the MRI exam are revealed. If he is placed on the disabled list, he would be ineligible to return to action until after the All-Star break. DH/1B Victor Martinez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) appears to be in line to see most of the action at first base while Cabrera is sidelined, although Andrew Romine ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Bryan Holaday ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) have also seen playing time there this season.

Tigers | Anibal Sanchez flirts with no-hitter

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 19:06:53 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez (7-7) carried a no-hitter into the eighth inning against the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, July 3, but OF Ezequiel Carrera's one-out single ended the bid. He ended up allowing four runs on three hits over 7 1/3 innings, with three walks and five strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) didn't even end up with a quality start, thanks to a poor performance by the Detroit bullpen, although he still managed to be credited for the victory. He will make his next start against the Seattle Mariners next week.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera to undergo MRI exam

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 18:05:36 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera (calf) suffered a strained left calf while running the bases against the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, July 3. He is scheduled to undergo an MRI exam.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) went 2-for-2 Friday before injuring himself on the basepaths during an apparent hit-and-run in the fourth inning. INF Andrew Romine ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) replaced Cabrera at first base, although DH/1B Victor Martinez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is more likely to start at the position if he is forced to miss multiple games. Keep checking back for further updates on Cabrera's status.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera suffers leg injury

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 17:17:26 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera (leg) left the game against the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, July 3, after suffering a leg injury while running the bases. Cabrera came up limping during an apparent hit-and-run attempt in the bottom of the fourth inning. He was replaced in the game by INF Andrew Romine.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) was batting .345 with 15 home runs and 53 RBIs through 76 games entering play Friday, July 3. If he is sidelined for an extended period of time, DH/1B Victor Martinez would probably see regular playing time in the field. Check back for updates on Cabrera's status.

Tigers | Alex Avila returns to the lineup vs. Jays

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 13:35:11 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Alex Avila is starting behind the plate and batting sixth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison Friday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: Dating back to the beginning of 2013, Avila has hit just .221 over 780 at-bats. Add that he last played almost two months ago, and there is no reason to start him in FantasyScore contests Friday. He is a low-end catcher in AL-only, cavernous mixed and two-catcher seasonal formats, too.

Tigers | Anthony Gose batting in eight-hole

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 13:27:43 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Anthony Gose is batting eighth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison Friday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the potential plus-matchup against Hutchison (8.92 ERA and a 5.66 FIP on the road), Gose ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has been reeling at the plate. Over his past 25 games, Gose has a single multi-hit showing, a single extra-base hit, zero RBI and a .153/.200/.165 slash line.

Tigers | Yeonis Cespedes batting second

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 13:22:55 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes is batting second against Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison Friday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: Hutchison has a 8.92 ERA and a 5.66 FIP on the road this season, so Cespedes ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) has a plus-matchup in that regard. Cespedes is slumping, though. Over his past eight games, he is 5-for-35 with just three runs, four RBI and a .371 OPS. At his cap hit, FantasyScore players should view Cespedes as a high-risk, high-reward start in contests.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler moved to leadoff spot

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 13:11:07 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler is batting first against Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison Friday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: Hutchison has a 8.92 ERA and a 5.66 FIP on the road this season, so Kinsler ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has a plus-matchup in that regard. Still, Kinsler is far from a lineup lock for FantasyScore players given his unimpressive current form (.208/.278/.292 slash line over the past 17 games).

Tigers | Alex Avila close to returning

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 11:12:33 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Alex Avila (knee) caught seven innings for Class AAA Toledo Wednesday, July 1, and he is 5-for-16 on his minor league rehab assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Avila ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is serving as the DH for Toledo today, and he could return to the Tigers this weekend if he doesn't have any setbacks. Avila is expected to share time behind the plate with James McCann ($3,000, 6.0% of cap). Avila is worth picking up in two-catcher or AL leagues if you're in need of a backstop. Hitting isn't his forte, though, and he doesn't have much power, so he'll be a mediocre catching option most days on FantasyScore.

Tigers | Alfredo Simon shelled again

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 21:00:12 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon allowed six runs on a career-high 15 hits in 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Simon ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) has been hit hard in three straight starts, allowing 18 earned runs over his last 14 2/3 innings. Avoid him at FantasyScore until he is able to turn things around.
