Tigers | Jose Iglesias hitting second vs. Boston

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 08:07:46 -0700

Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias is batting second against Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez Wednesday, July 27.

Fantasy Tip: Iglesias often climbs up the batting order against southpaws, and he's a viable flier in daily contests hitting second Wednesday. In seasonal settings, Iglesias is nothing more than a middling starter in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues.

Tigers | Twos wild for Jose Iglesias

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 21:24:06 -0700

Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias went 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored and a two-run home run Monday, July 25, against the Boston Red Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Iglesias has taken a step backward in the month of July after 10 extra-base hits and 10 RBIs in June. He is still a decent AL-only fantasy option and DFS play as a mid-tier option.

Tigers | Cameron Maybin sitting out

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 13:41:33 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Cameron Maybin is out of the starting lineup again Monday, July 25. SS Andrew Romine is starting in center field and batting ninth against Boston Red Sox SP Drew Pomeranz. Also, SS Jose Iglesias is hitting second for the second straight day.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin could be dealing with an injury since he's been out two days in a row. Check back for an update. Romine and Iglesias are both light-hitting middle infielders, but if you must take a flier on a deep sleeper in daily leagues it should be Iglesias since he's hitting in the heart of a powerful lineup. He's hitting just .255 on the year, though, with three homers and 21 RBI, so don't expect much.

Tigers | Jose Iglesias sitting vs. Minny

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 07:50:45 -0700

Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20. INF Andrew Romine is starting at shortstop and batting ninth against Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Steady playing time in a strong lineup keeps Iglesias in the fold for cavernous mixed and AL-only owners, but his real value is as a cheap flier in daily contests when Detroit faces a southpaw. Igelsias owns a respectable .289/.351/.417 slash line against lefties. Romine is a desperation start in all fantasy settings Wednesday given his career .285 slugging percentage.

Tigers | James McCann, Jose Iglesias starting

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 07:46:07 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann and SS Jose Iglesias are back in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Sunday, July 10. In addition, INF/OF Mike Aviles is batting seventh and playing right field, with OF Steven Moya receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: After a disastrous beginning to 2016, McCann is batting .267 in 90 at-bats since June 1, with four homers and 13 RBI, making him a viable catching option in all fantasy formats. Aviles is just 3-for-18 at the plate this month and is not a great option anywhere.

Tigers | James McCann, Jose Iglesias out

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 08:09:00 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann and SS Jose Iglesias are not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez Saturday, July 9. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup. SS Andrew Romine will start at shortstop and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Saltalamacchia has gone hitless in his six at-bats this month and is hitting only .200 this season. Owners should be able to find other players to use in their lineups. Romine is also hitting .200 so far this season and can also be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Tigers | Steven Moya not in lineup Saturday

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 10:04:32 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Steven Moya is not in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco Saturday, June 25. INF/OF Mike Aviles will play right field and bat seventh. In addition, SS Jose Iglesias is back in the lineup, batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Moya is batting .391 with three home runs over the past week but he will give way to Aviles Saturday, who is hitting .295 with four RBI over the past four weeks. He should be viewed as nothing more than an inexpensive flier option in daily fantasy contests. Iglesias is batting .351 with eight RBI this month and makes a productive source of cap relief in DFS at the shortstop position.

Tigers | Jose Iglesias sitting out

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 13:06:20 -0700

Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias is not in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar Friday, June 24. SS Andrew Romine will start at shortstop and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Romine has been playing better recently but is still hitting .196 this season. Owners in all leagues should be able to find better options to use.

Tigers | V-Mart, Maybin out Thursday

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 07:18:56 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez and OF Cameron Maybin are out of the lineup Thursday, June 23. 3B Nick Castellanos is hitting cleanup, and SS Jose Iglesias hits second. OF Andrew Romine is hitting ninth in center field, and C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is playing first and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Castellanos has cooled a bit with a .274-3-8 line this month, but he's a high-end consideration behind Miguel Cabrera. Iglesias is hitting .356 this month, and he has high upside ahead of Miggy. Romine and Salty aren't strong DFS flyers against Adrian Sampson.

Tigers | Jose Iglesias continues to rake

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 20:23:09 -0700

Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias went 3-for-4 with a double and a pair of RBIs Wednesday, June 22, against the Seattle Mariners.

Fantasy Tip: After hitting .160 in the month of May, Iglesias has picked up the pace in June. He is hitting .356 (26-for-73) with six doubles, a home run and six RBIs during the month. He has re-emerged as a must-start in AL-only fantasy leagues and deeper mixed formats.
