Tigers | Rajai Davis under the weather

Wed, 06 May 2015 10:22:56 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Rajai Davis (illness) is likely to receive the start Wednesday, May 6, against a left-handed pitcher, but he has been under the weather and hasn't played since Saturday, May 2, although that's mainly been due to pitching matchups.

Fantasy Tip: A less than 100% Davis ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) going up against Chicago White Sox lefty Chris Sale is a recipe for a bad play at FantasyScore this evening.

Tigers | Rajai Davis in lineup

Sat, 02 May 2015 14:52:11 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Rajai Davis is back in the lineup for Saturday, May 2, against the Kansas City Royals. Davis will replace OF J.D. Martinez against right-hander Edinson Volquez.

Tigers | J.D. Martinez not starting Saturday

Sat, 02 May 2015 12:41:46 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF J.D. Martinez is not in the starting lineup against the Kansas City Royals Saturday, May 2. OF Rajai Davis will start in right field and DH Victor Martinez will bat in the fifth spot in the lineup, with C Alex Avila hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has six homers and 15 RBIs through 24 games but he is getting the day off because he is hitless in his last 10 at-bats and has struck out in 11 of his last 17 at-bats. Davis ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is batting .389 in his last five games and could be worth a low-end flyer on FantasyScore.

Tigers | Rajai Davis was available

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 21:17:21 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Tigers OF Rajai Davis (groin) was available off the bench Tuesday, April 28, against the Minnesota Twins.

Fantasy Tip: With Davis ($2,700; or 5.4% of cap) sidelined it was Anthony Gose ($2,200; 4.4% of cap) getting the nod in center field. Until Davis can return and prove his legs are 100 percent, as speed is his calling card, FantasyScore owners can avoid him.

Tigers | Rajai Davis not in lineup Tuesday

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 13:23:30 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Rajai Davis (groin) is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 28, against the Minnesota Twins. OF Anthony Gose is in center field.

Fantasy Tip: Two factors are at work here for Davis ($2,700, 5.4% of cap). Mike Pelfrey, a right-hander, is starting for the Twins, and Davis may still have some lingering groin issues. Gose ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is a cheaper source of production in the outfield.

Tigers | Rajai Davis not playing Monday

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 16:31:12 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Rajai Davis (groin) is not in the starting lineup Monday, April 27, after injuring his groin Sunday, April 26. OF Anthony Gose was dropped to ninth in the batting order against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone Monday, and he's starting in center field.

Fantasy Tip: Gose ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is having a fine young season (15-for-45, .333, with three stolen bases), but he's normally a platoon partner with Davis that only faces right-handed hitters. He's not as attractive to FantasyScore owners while facing a southpaw and hitting at the bottom of the batting order.

Tigers | Rajai Davis swipes three bags

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 13:58:40 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Rajai Davis had three stolen bases Saturday, April 25. It was his ninth three-steal game since 2006, which is the most in the majors during that stretch.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($2,700, 5.4% of your cap) had three steals entering the game and is more valuable in traditional formats than in daily games. He's still worth the low-end flyer on FantasyScore.

Tigers | Rajai Davis hitting leadoff vs. White Sox

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 06:32:05 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Rajai Davis is batting leadoff against the Chicago White Sox Sunday, April 19.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) makes for a nice upside play in FantasyScore contests Sunday. He owned lefties last season with a .356/.382/.557 slash line, however opposing starter Jose Quintana is an above-average starter. Keep Davis in mind if you're chasing cap relief for your daily lineups.
