Tigers | Ian Kinsler back from illness

Fri, 27 May 2016 15:56:43 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler (illness) is back in the lineup in his customary leadoff spot against Oakland Athletics SP Sean Manaea Friday, May 27. As a result, OF Cameron Maybin moves down to seventh in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Kinsler should immediately thrown back into all starting lineups. The leadoff man has excelled this year with a .306/.354/.519 slash line with 10 home runs, 24 RBI and four steals. Maybin takes a bit of a daily hit but has been remarkable since he returned from the DL. Keep him in your lineups.

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 | Cameron Maybin drives in three

Sun, 22 May 2016 13:49:16 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Cameron Maybin continued to punish American League pitching in his first week back from a 37-game absence due to wrist injury, going 1-for-3 with three RBI in a win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin has brought a serious spark to the Tigers' lineup following his 37-game absence despite hitting seventh and is batting .600 after six games. The three-RBI effort was his first of the season and made up for the fact that Sunday was the first time the 29-year-old didn't steal a base or homer since his return. Maybin is simply too hot to keep out of any fantasy lineup right now.

Tigers | Cameron Maybin on a tear

Sat, 21 May 2016 22:44:50 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Cameron Maybin is 11-for-17 since coming off the disabled list on Monday, May 16. He had three hits in a 5-4 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday, May 21.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin has been a big boost to the lineup, having come in and hit the ground running since his activation. Maybin will eventually cool off, and to what level he does will determine how much fantasy consideration he gets. For now Maybin should get plenty of consideration given his hot batting average.

Tigers | Cameron Maybin busy on the bases

Fri, 20 May 2016 20:10:56 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Cameron Maybin went 3-for-4 with a steal in a 7-5 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays Friday, May 20, and he has stolen a base in all four games since returning from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: He could end up being a one-trick pony, but since speed isn't easy to find, Maybin could be worth a look in deeper mixed and AL-only formats if you need to boost your steals.

Tigers | Cameron Maybin in center Monday

Mon, 16 May 2016 14:19:48 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Cameron Maybin is making his season debut in center field and is batting seventh against Minnesota Twins SP Jose Berrios Monday, May 16. OF Steven Moya is starting on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin was activated off the DL today, and he could split time in the outfield with prospect Moya after Anthony Gose was sent down. The fact that Gose and not Moya was the odd-man out is telling. Maybin can provide modest speed and power numbers if he plays enough and is worth adding in deep mixed leagues if he's still available. Moya has raw power and also is worth rostering in deep mixed formats. The Tigers have tipped their hand that they want to continue giving him playing time at the major league level.

Tigers | Cameron Maybin to see plenty of action

Mon, 16 May 2016 14:03:32 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Cameron Maybin will receive the bulk of starts in center field with OF Justin Upton starting in center "every once in awhile," according to manager Brad Ausmus.

Fantasy Tip: There isn't any shocking news here after Anthony Gose was demoted Monday, May 16. However, this does cement Maybin's fantasy value as a low-end starter in the majority of fantasy leagues. He should approach double-digit home runs and stolen bases with a respectable batting average and enough runs and RBI to tip the scales across each fantasy category.

Tigers | Cameron Maybin activated

Mon, 16 May 2016 09:17:34 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Cameron Maybin (wrist, shoulder) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Monday, May 16. OF Anthony Gose was optioned to the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin figures to share time with either Justin Upton or Steven Moya in the outfield upon his return. The 29-year-old outfielder has a modest mix of power and speed that should play well for at least depth in deep mixed leagues. Scoop him up immediately if he's still out there and you're in need in the outfield.

Tigers | Cameron Maybin experiencing soreness

Mon, 09 May 2016 23:45:51 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Tigers OF Cameron Maybin (wrist, shoulder) experienced soreness in his right shoulder while playing center field in his minor-league rehab game Saturday, May 7, and he was limited to designated hitter Sunday, May 8, and Monday, May 9.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin has been a talented player in his career, but he has had a lot of difficulty staying healthy for long stretches of time. When healthy, he is bested used in AL-only fantasy leagues and DFS play.
