Tigers | J.D. Martinez out of the lineup vs. Tribe

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 13:19:23 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF J.D. Martinez is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 12. OF Tyler Collins is playing right field and batting fifth against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is 1-for-9 with seven strikeouts against Salazar, so that is a logical explanation for Collins ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) starting in his place Friday. Salazar is a tough matchup, so FantasyScore players should view Collins as a risky option, even though he has a solid .897 OPS over 43 plate appearances this season. Expect Martinez back in the lineup Saturday, June 13, and he remains a solid option in all formats. He has 32 runs, 10 home runs, 27 RBI and a .258/.317/.444 slash line. Don't rule out better results going forward for Martinez, either.

Tigers | Tyler Collins batting fifth vs. Chicago

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 13:29:00 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Tyler Collins is batting fifth as the designated hitter against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta Wednesday, June 10.

Fantasy Tip: Collins ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) should be viewed as a desperation flier by FantasyScore players Wednesday. He has played well when called upon with five runs, a home run, five RBI and a .306/.359/.472 slash line over 13 games. It is a small sample size, though, and Arrieta is a tough matchup.

Tigers | Victor Martinez heading to DL?

Tue, 19 May 2015 09:40:35 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez (knee) could be on his way to the disabled list after the team recalled OF Tyler Collins from Class AAA Toledo (Ohio) Tuesday, May 19. Collins was hitting .248 with no home runs and nine RBI in 32 games with the Mud Hens, and he was the final cut from the opening day roster. Martinez has been fighting through soreness in his twice surgically-repaired left knee all year. He tweaked his knee again Monday, May 18, and went 0-for-4 to extend his hitless streak to 13 at-bats. Martinez is hitting .141 with one extra-base hit in 85 at-bats against right-handed pitchers, and he refuses to hit right-handed against righties.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) came up gimpy trying to beat out a double play in Monday night's game. His knee ailment is likely the main culprit for his slow start and lack of thump at the plate. Hopefully for his owners, a break and some rest will do him good, but this could very well be a lost season for the veteran switch hitter. If Martinez needs a DL stint, it'll raise the value of Rajai Davis ($3,000, 6.0% of cap), who has mainly been starting against left-handed pitchers.
