Tigers | Steven Moya continues June tear

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 16:42:06 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Steven Moya continued his awesome showing in June by delivering his fourth home run of the month Wednesday, June 29, against the Miami Marlins. The 24-year-old went 1-for-4 on the day with a run scored and an RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Moya was recalled only a couple of weeks ago, but he's simply been outstanding for the Tigers ever since. In fact, he's registered at least one hit in seven of his eight games this month, and all of his homers this season have come in June. Now that he's carved out a regular role in Detroit's lineup, owners should start consider adding Moya, even outside deep formats.

Tigers | Daniel Norris claims first win of '16

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 16:39:59 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Daniel Norris secured his first win in his second start of the season Wednesday, June 29, opposite the Miami Marlins. The youngster had to labor through five innings, throwing 100 pitches, but managed to surrender only a pair of runs on eight hits and one walk. He also struck out eight.

Fantasy Tip: Overall, a fine outing for the 23-year-old other than the amount of baserunners scattered, as he continues to get settled in again after only recently returning from injury. There could be some value here, with Norris having a really good offense backing him, plus owners should consider that he was the main piece in the David Price deal a year ago, meaning he'll get plenty of opportunities to succeed. If he gets in a consistent rhythm, Norris can be a very useful arm for most fantasy squads.

Tigers | James McCann resting against Fish

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 09:13:47 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 29. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia receives the start and is batting eighth against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler.

Fantasy Tip: Salty does have seven home runs and 20 RBI on the year in limited time behind the plate, but he's batting a putrid .187 on the season. He has pop but is a lottery ticket in DFS action as a deep sleeper pick to save salary cap space.

Tigers | Steven Moya returns

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 08:45:31 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Steven Moya (knee) returned to the lineup Wednesday, June 29, and he's hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Moya was on a tear with a 5-for-10 (.500) stretch with two homers, and he's a midrange option against Tom Koehler.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera blasts 17th home run

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 21:11:51 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera clubbed a three-run homer as part of a seven-run fifth inning against the Miami Marlins on Tuesday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera has been in a bit of a slump for about a week after lighting it up the previous week, although he does have five home runs in the second half of this month after not hitting any over the first 15 days of the month. The 2013 AL MVP is just a homer shy of tying his total from last year's injury-plagued campaign and it seems like a good bet his average, which stands at .295 at the moment, will crawl back over .300 again in no time.

Tigers | Nick Castellanos enjoys banner day

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 20:26:21 -0700

Detroit Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer - his 14th - and finished a double shy of the cycle versus the Miami Marlins on Tuesday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Castellanos wasn't interested in running up pitch counts tonight either, as he saw only nine. The 24-year-old is already one home run shy of matching his career high set last year, while his .302/.337/.526 slash line would top each of his previous personal-best marks by a wide margin. His breakout season is upon us, and owners should go along for the ride.

Tigers | Mike Aviles starting against Miami

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 12:31:53 -0700

Detroit Tigers INF/OF Mike Aviles is starting in right field and batting eighth against Miami Marlins SP Adam Conley Tuesday, June 28. OF Steven Moya (knee) is not in the starting lineup Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Aviles has a .533 OPS this season and should be viewed as a depth player in cavernous mixed and AL-only formats. Moya hasn't played since sustaining a knee injury Friday, June 24, and at this point, he should be left to similar deep leagues.

Tigers | Cameron Maybin likes home cooking

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 10:47:48 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Cameron Maybin has hit safely in 19 of the 20 home games he's played in this year with at least one at-bat.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin has had his fair share of injuries this year that have limited him to 133 at-bats, but when he's been on the field he's been great, hitting .346 with a home run, 15 RBI, 21 runs and eight stolen bases. Maybin's average will come down, but he contributes modestly across all categories and should be owned in all formats.

Tigers | Justin Verlander pounded for four homers

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 14:57:55 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander became the first pitcher in franchise history to give up four home runs in one inning against the Cleveland Indians on Sunday, June 26. Verlander, who was tagged for eight runs on nine hits and two walks across 4 2/3 innings, had only surrendered four homers in a start one other time - also against the Indians in 2007.

Fantasy Tip: Juan Uribe, Tyler Naquin, Mike Napoli and Lonnie Chisenhall each went deep off Verlander during the Indians' six-run fifth inning, ending his day after 87 pitches. The 2011 AL MVP is 0-3 with a 9.18 ERA in three turns versus Cleveland this season and 7-3 with a 3.38 ERA against everybody else, so his owners should go ahead and give him a chance to make things right Saturday against the Tampa Bay Rays on the road.

Tigers | James McCann, Steven Moya sitting

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 07:30:12 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann and OF Steven Moya (knee) are not in the starting lineup Sunday, June 26. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is starting behind the plate and batting seventh, and INF/0F Mike Aviles is starting in right field and batting eighth against Cleveland Indians SP Josh Tomlin Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: McCann has been hot in June with a .283/.313/.550 slash line and is a viable starting option in the majority of seasonal leagues. Saltalamacchia, meanwhile, is mired in an active 13-for-88 runs at the plate with a .529 OPS and is a desperation own and start at this point. Aviles and Moya have been splitting time of late in right field with Moya nursing a knee injury. Neither are anything more than low-end starters in cavernous mixed and AL-only setups, but when healthy, Moya has the potential to enter the mixed league conversation.

Tigers | Sore knee for Steven Moya

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 17:07:49 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Steven Moya (knee) is dealing with a sore right knee, and manager Brad Ausmus said Moya is day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't sound like the injury is overly serious, but monitor his status over the coming days and be prepared to swap him out.

Tigers | Steven Moya not in lineup Saturday

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 10:04:32 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Steven Moya is not in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco Saturday, June 25. INF/OF Mike Aviles will play right field and bat seventh. In addition, SS Jose Iglesias is back in the lineup, batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Moya is batting .391 with three home runs over the past week but he will give way to Aviles Saturday, who is hitting .295 with four RBI over the past four weeks. He should be viewed as nothing more than an inexpensive flier option in daily fantasy contests. Iglesias is batting .351 with eight RBI this month and makes a productive source of cap relief in DFS at the shortstop position.

Tigers | Mike Pelfrey makes relief appearance

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 19:28:14 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Mike Pelfrey tossed 4 1/3 scoreless innings in relief of SP Jordan Zimmermann versus the Cleveland Indians Friday, June 24, with three hits allowed and two strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Pelfrey recently had his next scheduled start pushed back from Saturday, June 25, to Tuesday, June 28, so that he could work on his mechanics. However, Friday's outing means he will probably be pushed back a second time. The 32-year-old right-hander was pressed into service because the Detroit bullpen was shorthanded. He is 1-7 with a 5.36 ERA through 15 appearances in 2016 and should not be owned outside of deep AL-only fantasy leagues.

Tigers | Jordan Zimmermann struggles Friday

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 19:24:46 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Jordan Zimmermann (9-4) allowed seven runs on nine hits over 3 2/3 innings in a loss to the Cleveland Indians Friday, June 24, with no walks and three strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: After a strong start to 2016, Zimmermann has allowed at least six runs in four of his last seven outings and has only made it past the sixth inning twice in the last month. He should be viewed as a somewhat risky play for his next start versus the Tampa Bay Rays Friday, July 1.

Tigers | Michael Fulmer has next start lined up

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 15:55:48 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Michael Fulmer will make his next start during the upcoming four-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays beginning Thursday, June 30, according to manager Brad Ausmus.

Fantasy Tip: Fulmer is being skipped this trip through the rotation to conserve his innings. It isn't a huge hit to fantasy owners because it should mean he'll pitch deeper into the season. Through 11 starts, Fulmer has 11 wins with a 2.40 ERA, a 1.16 WHIP and 60 strikeouts through 63 2/3 innings. Those are high-end numbers, and until Fulmer shows otherwise, he should be viewed as a solid mid-rotation hurler for your virtual squad.
