Tigers | Cameron Maybin, James McCann out

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 13:43:48 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Cameron Maybin (back) and C James McCann are not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright Tuesday, July 26. OF Tyler Collins will start in center field, while 3B Mike Aviles will start in right field and is batting seventh. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Aviles is hitting only .180 this month and has received solid playing time during that span. Owners probably should avoid him in their leagues. Saltalamacchia has only three hits in his last 12 games and should only be a starting option in two-catcher leagues.

Tigers | Jarrod Saltalamacchia in vs. White Sox

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 14:36:47 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Chicago White Sox SP Jacob Turner Friday, July 22. C James McCann is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Saltalamacchia is 10-for-50 through his past 20 games with nine runs, two home runs and seven RBI. He's a potential flier in daily contests, but like McCann, neither are anything more than low-end options in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only leagues.

Tigers | James McCann resting Thursday

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 11:53:21 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 21. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is behind the plate and is batting seventh against Chicago White Sox SP James Shields.

Fantasy Tip: Despite Shields evening out of late, he's prone to allowing the long ball, which makes Salty a consideration as a deep sleeper at catcher tonight in DFS games. Saltalamacchia is hitting just .201 on the season but does have nine home runs in 144 at-bats.

Tigers | James McCann, Tyler Collins sitting

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 12:47:51 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann and OF Tyler Collins are not in the starting lineup Monday, July 18. INF/OF Mike Aviles is starting in right field and batting seventh, and C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco Monday.

Fantasy Tip: McCann is just 7-for-37 in July and should be viewed as a low-end option in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only leagues. Saltalamacchia is a potential flier in daily contests Monday, but he's got very little seasonal value. Aviles remains a viable depth option in cavernous mixed and AL-only formats, while Collins also has fleeting value in those deep settings.

Tigers | James McCann resting Sunday

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 08:28:15 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann is out of the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura Sunday, July 17. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia will bat eighth and start behind the plate. In addition, OF Justin Upton is batting sixth and playing left field, with OF Tyler Collins hitting seventh and starting in right field.

Fantasy Tip: Saltalamacchia and Upton haven't been hitting enough recently to warrant starting in DFS. Collins is 3-for-8 in his career against Ventura but is only batting .148 through 27 at-bats in 2016, making him nothing more than an inexpensive flier option.

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.
