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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
