Tigers | J.D. Martinez not starting Saturday

Sat, 02 May 2015 12:41:46 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF J.D. Martinez is not in the starting lineup against the Kansas City Royals Saturday, May 2. OF Rajai Davis will start in right field and DH Victor Martinez will bat in the fifth spot in the lineup, with C Alex Avila hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has six homers and 15 RBIs through 24 games but he is getting the day off because he is hitless in his last 10 at-bats and has struck out in 11 of his last 17 at-bats. Davis ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is batting .389 in his last five games and could be worth a low-end flyer on FantasyScore.

Tigers | J.D. Martinez hasn't slowed down

Fri, 27 Mar 2015 10:34:01 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF J.D. Martinez hit .315 in 123 games last year for the Tigers, and he has continued to spray line drives all over the field this spring. He has moved from left field to right field to make room for OF Yoenis Cespedes.

Fantasy Tip: What everyone wants to know is can Martinez do it again in 2015? His spring results should have you optimistic, but don't overvalue him in fantasy drafts just because of his impressive 2014 season.
