Detroit Tigers C Alex Avila is not in the starting lineup Monday, April 20. C James McCann will be the starting catcher for the Tigers.
Fantasy Tip: Avila ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is not playing since the team is facing a left-handed starter. McCann ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) only has one hit in his last 16 at-bats, so owners probably should look for better options to use.

Detroit Tigers C Alex Avila is not in the starting lineup Sunday, April 19. C James McCann will be the starting catcher against the Chicago White Sox.
Fantasy Tip: The Tigers are facing a left-handed pitcher, so Avila ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) receives his second straight day off. McCann ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should not be a starting option in FantasyScore since he has not recorded a hit in his last 12 at bats.

Detroit Tigers C Alex Avila is not in the starting lineup Saturday, April 18. C James McCann will be the starting catcher for the Tigers.
Fantasy Tip: Avila ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) probably will be back in the lineup Sunday, April 19, and is just receiving an off day. McCann ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has gone hitless in his eight at-bats and is a weak starting option on FantasyScore.

Detroit Tigers C James McCann will start behind the plate Sunday, April 12, against the Cleveland Indians. McCann will bat eighth, behind OF Yoenis Cespedes and 3B Nick Castellanos.
Fantasy Tip: McCann ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is an intriguing option for owners in need of a cheap option at catcher. McCann had just 12 plate appearances in the majors last season, but hit .295 with seven home runs and stole nine bases in Triple-A in 2014. McCann is going for the cheapest possible price, and is part of a red-hot offense.
