Tigers | Ian Kinsler out again Wednesday

Wed, 25 May 2016 07:21:23 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler (illness) is out of the lineup Wednesday, May 25, with OF Cameron Maybin leading off. 2B Mike Aviles is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin is 16-for-28 (.571) with a homer, five RBI and four steals to start his season. Aaron Nola is a tough matchup, but Maybin is a daily consideration at this juncture. Aviles is hitting .139 and has struck out 13 times in 36 at-bats. He's not worth consideration today.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler scratched

Tue, 24 May 2016 14:19:12 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler (flu) has been scratched from the starting lineup Tuesday, May 24, due to flu-like symptoms. SS Mike Aviles, who was supposed to play in left field, has been moved to second base and will bat eighth. OF Cameron Maybin will now bat leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: Kinsler's absence shifted the lineup around for the evening, most notably with Maybin going to leadoff. He has been the Tigers' hottest hitter in the last week, and Maybin definitely carries increased fantasy value with that hot bat. Aviles' value is still nonexistent.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler homers in fourth straight

Wed, 18 May 2016 16:38:35 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler homered for the fourth straight game Wednesday, May 18, against the Minnesota Twins. He finished the afternoon 3-for-4 with two runs scored and two RBI. He now has 10 home runs on the year.

Fantasy Tip: Kinsler is simply on fire right now, as not only does he keep clocking the ball out of the park, but he's also hitting .464 in his last seven games. Clearly, with his .319/.367/.554 line and desirable power numbers, the 33-year-old is trending towards a berth on the All-Star team. He's been one of the most valuable second baseman in all of fantasy this year.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler stays hot

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 13:30:16 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler went 2-for-4 with two runs, a double, an RBI and a walk during the Tigers' 7-3 win over the Oakland Athletics Thursday, April 28.

Fantasy Tip: Kinsler has now registered a hit in 18 of 20 games this season and sits with a .345/.376/.529 slash line. He has also padded the counting stats by collecting 20 runs, four home runs, 13 RBI and a stolen base. At 33, Kinsler doesn't offer the power-speed combo he did in his prime, but his strong start has him among the best fantasy options at the keystone.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler back in lineup Tuesday

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 13:39:59 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler (flu) is back in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 26, against the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Kinsler should be reinstated to fantasy lineups immediately in daily leagues, otherwise there is little disruption in weekly or annual contests. He is worth putting in your lineup, with a .320 average, four runs and eight hits in the past seven games.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler scratched from lineup

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 14:46:47 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler (illness) has been scratched from the lineup Monday, April 25, against the Oakland Athletics due to flu-like symptoms. 2B Mike Aviles will take his place at second base and bat ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Bad break for Kinsler, who is out to a wonderful start this year and has even recorded at least one hit in all but two games he's played in. Aviles will get the start as a result, but isn't worth utilizing in any daily formats. After all, he's picked up just one hit thus far in 12 at-bats. Jose Iglesias, however, is worth a look, as he gets bumped up into the leadoff spot this evening.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler wallops second HR

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 15:30:55 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler belted his second home run of the season Tuesday, April 12, versus the Pittsburgh Pirates. He finished the afternoon 2-for-4 with three runs scored and one RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Like a few other Tigers hitters, Kinsler is out to a scorching start, as he's now slashing .370/.414/.630. Considering how explosive Detroit's lineup is, the former Texas Ranger has to be considered one of the best second baseman to own at the moment, seeing as how he hits at the very top of the order. It looks like he'll top 100 runs for the sixth time in his career.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler has big '16 debut

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 22:03:00 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler finished 3-for-6 Tuesday, April 5, opposite the Miami Marlins, producing his first home run of the year, two runs scored and four RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Owners who have Kinsler have to like what they received in his first game of the year, filling up the stat sheet. Although he only had 11 homers last season, Kinsler is still someone capable of getting to 20 long balls while delivering a relatively solid batting average and double-digit stolen bases. Continue to fire him up and hope this leads to a nice April.
