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.

Tigers | Yoenis Cespedes back on track

Thu, 19 Mar 2015 07:13:35 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes (quadriceps) is back on his regular schedule after he was shut down a couple of days due to a quadriceps injury.

Fantasy Tip: There is no word on whether he was leg pressing his friends again to cause the flare-up, but Cespedes ($5,200; 10.4% of your cap) has a ton of RBI and run potential in this lineup. His home run output could dip a little in the big ballpark, but Oakland's spacious confines didn't hinder him much. He's a low-end first outfielder on FantasyScore.

Sun, 15 Mar 2015 11:42:08 -0700

Tigers | Yoenis Cespedes to take BP

Sat, 14 Mar 2015 07:35:41 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes (quadriceps) is scheduled to take batting practice Saturday, March 14.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes suffered the injury Thursday, March 12, but it looks like a minor injury. Cespedes has posted solid home run and RBI totals over the last several seasons but could hurt owners with his batting average. Cespedes probably will be an option in the early middle rounds of drafts this season.

Tigers | Yoenis Cespedes day-to-day

Thu, 12 Mar 2015 13:33:07 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes (quadriceps) quadriceps injury was deemed minor by head athletic trainer Kevin Rand Thursday, March 12. Rand said Cespedes is day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes has topped 70 runs, 20 home runs and 80 RBIs in each of his three seasons in the league, and expect those benchmarks to be met again in 2015. His batting average and stolen bases are another story, though. It is unlikely Cespedes deliveries a plus-return in either category, and there is potential for him to post a sub-.250 batting average. Still, those counting stats warrant attention in the early middle round on draft day.

Tigers | Yoenis Cespedes leaves game

Thu, 12 Mar 2015 11:01:50 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes (quadriceps) left the game with left quadriceps tightness Thursday, March 12, and he's listed as day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes has already dealt with a back injury this spring, too. The injuries appear minor, but it's something to keep an eye on. Cespedes has hit at least 22 home runs and drive in 80 RBI in his three MLB seasons, but his batting average fluctuates, he doesn't take many walks, and Comerica Park might hurt his power numbers. He's a safe fantasy baseball commodity if priced right, but don't overvalue him just because he plays for the Tigers now.

Tigers | Yoenis Cespedes could be back Saturday

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 13:56:18 -0800

Updating a previous report, Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes (back) could return to the lineup Saturday, March 7, according to manager Brad Ausmus. Cespedes' back tightened up on him, and he was a late scratch from the game Thursday, March 5.

Fantasy Tip: The injury isn't expected to be serious, but continue to check back for updates on Cespedes' status. He has topped 70 runs, 20 home runs and 80 RBIs in each of his three seasons in the league. While he hit .292 and stole 16 bases in 2012, those are likely going to be career-high marks and aren't his go-to categories. Joining a potent Detroit lineup should help his fantasy stock, and Cespedes is unlikely to last long on draft day. He is a viable target in the early middle rounds after the top-tier outfielders come off the board.

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 09:46:58 -0800

Fantasy Tip: The injury does not appear to be serious, but Cespedes could sit out a few days to allow the injury to heal. Cespedes has joined a powerful Tigers lineup and should hit near the middle of the lineup. Owners can consider selecting Cespedes in the early middle rounds of mixed league drafts.

Tigers | Yoenis Cespedes wants to stay in DET

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 04:53:56 -0800

Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes told media he would love to stay in Detroit for the long term, saying "this is a good team now and will be for a lot of years to come."

Fantasy Tip: The window on a World Series may be closing soon, but Cespedes is correct for the most part. Depending on how Comerica Park's dimensions affect his bat Cespedes' value could increase a bit, but he is still a solid pick in most AL and mixed leagues. Also keep in mind he played several years in Oakland, long considered a pitcher's park.
