Tigers | Yeonis Cespedes batting second

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 13:22:55 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes is batting second against Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison Friday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: Hutchison has a 8.92 ERA and a 5.66 FIP on the road this season, so Cespedes ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) has a plus-matchup in that regard. Cespedes is slumping, though. Over his past eight games, he is 5-for-35 with just three runs, four RBI and a .371 OPS. At his cap hit, FantasyScore players should view Cespedes as a high-risk, high-reward start in contests.

Fri, 05 Jun 2015 15:06:39 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes (flu) is back in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Friday, June 5.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has really struggled against lefties in 2015, going just 6-for-40 (.150) with three home runs and 12 RBI. However, throw that out the window Friday on FantasyScore. In his career against Quintana, he's 6-for-9 with four home runs and nine RBI. It's a small sample size, but you can't ignore it.

Tigers | Yoenis Cespedes out of the lineup

Mon, 18 May 2015 12:01:33 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes (thumb) is not in the starting lineup against the Milwaukee Brewers Monday, May 18. OF Rajai Davis is batting sixth and playing left field Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Cespedes ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday. He played Sunday, May 17, after he hurt his thumb in the game Saturday, May 16. His absence Monday is likely just an opportunity to rest the slugger. Davis ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) could be a sneaky low-priced FantasyScore option Monday. He has 12 runs and 5 stolen bases with an .845 OPS over his last 50 plate appearances.

Tigers | Yoenis Cespedes owns Jose Quintana

Thu, 07 May 2015 11:06:36 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes has hit home runs in each of his last four at-bats against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana. Cespedes is 6-for-8 (.750) with a double, four home runs and nine RBI against Quintana in his career.

Fantasy Tip: It's an extremely small sample size, but anytime a hitter has that much success with home runs against a pitcher, you take notice. For that reason, Cespedes ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) becomes an attractive option at FantasyScore today, despite the fact he's hitting just .185 (5-for-27) against lefties this year.

Tigers | Yoenis Cespedes has career day

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 13:48:36 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes had a pair of home runs and six RBI against the Chicago White Sox on Sunday, April 19. It is a career high for Cespedes and the most RBI by a Tiger since Omar Infante in September 2013.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) appears to be adjusting beautifully to his surroundings in Detroit. It may have been just the pitching matchup (Jose Quintana), but he is definitely a great pickup at a lower salary with the threat of some power.
