Tigers | James McCann not starting Tuesday

Tue, 24 May 2016 13:52:13 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann will not start Tuesday, May 24, against the Philadelphia Phillies. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is starting and batting seventh against Phillies SP Jeremy Hellickson.

Fantasy Tip: McCann's numbers have been less than perfect at the plate (.194 at home, .149 during May), and he carries little fantasy value even as a starting catcher. Saltalamacchia has become part of a platoon, but he too has slumped horribly. Right now, the Tigers catching situation is terrible and its fantasy value is negligible.

Tigers | Justin Upton out of lineup Sunday

Sun, 22 May 2016 09:38:15 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Justin Upton, C James McCann and Jose Iglesias are not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer Sunday, May 22. OF Steven Moya will play left field and bat sixth, C Jarrod Saltalamacchia will start behind the plate and bat eighth and INF Andrew Romine will play shortstop and bat ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Saltalamacchia is batting just .163 over the last four weeks and Romine is just 1-for-16 at the plate this year, so both players should be avoided in all fantasy formats. Moya is 7-for-19 (.368) with three extra-base hits and is worth considering as a productive means of salary cap relief in DFS.

Tigers | James McCann sitting Wednesday

Wed, 18 May 2016 09:10:11 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 18. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is starting and is hitting eighth against Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco.

Fantasy Tip: You could certainly do worse than Salty as a low-end catcher in daily formats at a cheap price. The Tigers backup catcher is hitting just .222 but has notable pop and has slugged seven long balls on the season in just 81 at-bats.

Tigers | James McCann takes a seat

Mon, 16 May 2016 14:20:17 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 16. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is taking his place behind the plate and is batting eighth against Minnesota Twins SP Jose Berrios.

Fantasy Tip: Aside from a home run late last week, Salty hasn't done much in May, hitting .227 (5-for-22) with limited playing time after McCann came off the DL. Saltalamacchia has decent power at his position but is a big dice roll in daily formats, especially hitting so low in the batting order.

Tigers | James McCann sitting out

Thu, 12 May 2016 12:51:54 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 12. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is staring at catcher and is batting eighth against Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez.

Fantasy Tip: Salty performed well when McCann was on the DL last month, but the veteran catcher doesn't have much to offer besides the occasional long ball. Hitting low in the batting order severely limits his upside in DFS play tonight, too. Consider Saltalamacchia a low-end catcher pick. He's lost most of his value in traditional leagues, too, with McCann seeing the majority of starts now.

Tigers | James McCann not in the lineup

Sat, 07 May 2016 08:39:39 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann is not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP A.J. Griffin Saturday, May 7. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia will start at catcher and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Saltalamacchia has gone 3-for-10 with two RBI in four games this month. He is hitting .227 on the season but could be a starting candidate for desperate owners in daily fantasy leagues.

Tigers | Three Detroit regulars out

Thu, 05 May 2016 11:25:35 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann, SS Jose Iglesias and OF Anthony Gose are not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 5. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is doing the catching and hitting seventh, 3B Mike Aviles is at the 6 and is batting eighth, and SS Andrew Romine is in center field and is hitting ninth against Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer.

Fantasy Tip: Salty got hot with regular playing time when McCann was on the DL, but has only four hits in his last 29 at-bats (.138). He's a low-end catching option if you're looking to save salary cap space. Aviles and Romine are desperation daily picks and should be avoided.

Tigers | Jarrod Saltalamacchia in lineup

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 09:06:02 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is back in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tyler Duffey Saturday, April 30, batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: After a strong start to the 2016 season, Saltalamacchia has cooled off recently, with just one hit in 13 at-bats over the past week. That being said, his six home runs and 15 RBI are nothing to sneeze at, so he's worth a flier in daily fantasy games.

Tigers | Bobby Wilson starting against Twins

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 12:53:52 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Bobby Wilson is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes Friday, April 29. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Saltalamacchia has eight runs, six home runs and 15 RBI to start the year, but his fantasy value is likely about to shrink with James McCann close to returning from injury. Wilson hasn't registered a hit through 10 plate appearances this season, and he owns a .201/.265/.298 slash line for his career. Avoid Wilson in all fantasy formats.

Tigers | Jarrod Saltalamacchia resting

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 13:00:56 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 27. C Bobby Wilson is doing the catching and batting eighth against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson isn't much of a hitter, as he hit just .189 with one home run in 2015. You can find much better low-price catchers in daily formats Wednesday night.
