Tigers | Three OFs sharing time at two positions

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 18:04:01 -0700

Detroit Tigers OFs Tyler Collins, Rajai Davis and Anthony Gose are expected to share time in left field and center field for the remainder of the season, with OF J.D. Martinez serving as the full-time right fielder.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has played all three outfield positions in 2015, while Gose ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has exclusively played center field and Collins has manned the two corner outfield positions. Expect to see Gose and Collins in the lineup versus righties, with Davis getting playing time against lefties.

Tigers | Anthony Gose taking day off

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 13:11:02 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Anthony Gose is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 30. OF Rajai Davis is starting in center field and hitting ninth against Baltimore Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez.

Fantasy Tip: Both Gose and Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) have fizzled out at the plate lately, and Davis has only six hits in 43 at-bats (.140) in July with no homers or RBI. He typically is only attractive to daily gamers when he's facing left-handers, too, so he should be considered a weak option on FantasyScore tonight, especially while hitting ninth.

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 13:25:41 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Alex Avila, SP Alfredo Simon and OF Rajai Davis could be moved before the trade deadline since they will become free agents after the season.

Fantasy Tip: Avila ($3,300, 6.6% of cap), Simon ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) and Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has been regulars for the Tigers this season but could be moved for the right offer. Their fantasy value will be determined by which team they play for and the role on the team.

Tigers | Anthony Gose will not start

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 12:39:54 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Anthony Gose is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Mike Montgomery Wednesday, July 22. OF Rajai Davis will start in center field and is batting first in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gose ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) likely is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has not done much at the plate this month and should be avoided on FantasyScore.

Tigers | Anthony Gose not in the lineup

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 12:25:55 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Anthony Gose is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP J.A. Happ Monday, July 20. OF Rajai Davis will start in center field and is batting first in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gose ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) likely is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is hitting only .208 this month and has not recorded any home runs or RBI during that span. Owners on FantasyScore may want to look for other options to use.

Tigers | Rajai Davis starting Saturday

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 10:19:05 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Rajai Davis will bat ninth and play center field against Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes Saturday, July 11. OF Anthony Gose is getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is a career .219 (7-for-32) hitter against Hughes, with four doubles and four RBIs. However, he is only batting .176 this month and hasn't swiped a bag in his last 16 games - a major problem for a player known best for his speed. Avoid using him in FantasyScore today.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler out Wednesday

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 10:00:09 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 8. SS Andrew Romine is starting at the keystone and hitting eighth against Seattle Mariners SP J.A. Happ. OF Rajai Davis is batting leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: Romine ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is hitting well this year (.320-2-8) in 75 at-bats, but he remains a low-end shortstop option on FantasyScore. Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is a fine value pick today while facing a lefty. He's hitting .299 (20-for-67) with one of his two home runs against southpaws.

Tigers | Anthony Gose sitting vs. righty

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 14:32:52 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Anthony Gose is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 1. OF Rajai Davis is leading off against Pittsburgh Pirates SP A.J. Burnett Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Gose ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is sporting a .365 OPS over his past 90 plate appearances, and he is in danger of losing playing time to Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) going forward. Davis has a .348/.388/.587 slash line over his past 49 plate appearances with plenty of speed, and he is a viable FantasyScore option Wednesday.

Tigers | Rajai Davis leading off vs. Pirates

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 13:43:40 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Rajai Davis is leading off against Pittsburgh Pirates SP A.J. Burnett Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has a .348/.388/.587 slash line over his past 49 plate appearances and stands as an upside play for FantasyScore players when in the lineup, especially leading off. Just note, he faces a tall test againt Burnett Wednesday. In seasonal formats, there is a chance Davis begins to earn the majority of starts in center field with Anthony Gose ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) sporting a .365 OPS over his past 90 plate appearances. Davis' speed makes him a viable add in the majority of leagues, albeit currently, just a speculative one.
