Tigers | Daniel Norris recalled by Detroit

Wed, 11 May 2016 10:41:57 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Daniel Norris was recalled from Class AAA Toledo Wednesday, May 11. In a corresponding move, OF Tyler Collins was optioned.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear what Norris' role will be in Detroit, but Mike Pelfrey's (6.23 ERA) rotation spot could be in jeopardy. The 23-year-old Norris was struggling in the minors in two different stops with an 8.44 ERA and 26 strikeouts in 21 1/3 innings over six starts. He had a tumultuous year in 2015 and was diagnosed with cancer. The strikeout upside is there if he can improve his control and limit the long ball. He's a speculative add in AL-only leagues for now.

Mon, 09 May 2016 12:17:08 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Tyler Collins was recalled from Class AAA Toledo Monday, May 9. In a corresponding move, SP Buck Farmer was optioned to Toledo.

Fantasy Tip: Collins is a depth outfielder for the Tigers and a low-end fantasy option in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. He is 2-for-20 to start 2016 and has a career .250/.295/.390 slash line.

Tigers | Anthony Gose, Saltalamacchia sitting

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 14:13:40 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Anthony Gose and C Jarrod Saltalamacchia are not in the starting lineup Friday, April 22. OF Tyler Collins is starting in center field and batting seventh, while C Bobby Wilson is behind the dish and is hitting eighth against Cleveland Indians SP Josh Tomlin.

Fantasy Tip: Collins and Wilson are at the bottom of the barrel in terms of daily options to consider Friday night. That's two straight games Gose has been on the bench against right-handers, so his playing time could be in jeopardy moving forward. After all, Gose is off to a .200 (8-for-40) start with no stolen bases in one attempt.

Tigers | No Anthony Gose Thursday

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 12:31:29 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Anthony Gose is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 21. OF Tyler Collins draws the start in center field and is batting eighth against Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez.

Fantasy Tip: Collins has only five career home runs in 241 plate appearances and doesn't move the fantasy needle at all, really, in any format. There are better low-priced daily options to choose from.

Tigers | Three Tigers take a seat

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 07:10:01 -0700

Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias, OF Anthony Gose and C Jarrod Saltalamacchia are out of the lineup Thursday, April 14. OF Tyler Collins is hitting sixth, C Bobby Wilson is hitting seventh and SS Andrew Romine is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: The trio is a combined 1-for-5 (.200) this season, and none of them provide enough upside for a DFS start. Furthermore, Jordan Zimmermann is hitting ninth in the National League park, which means the bottom of Detroit's order is even more questionable. That could affect Ian Kinsler in the leadoff spot. Kinsler is on a .355-3-8 tear and remains a daily consideration, but his RBI upside is minimal today.

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 07:24:42 -0700

Tigers | Anthony Gose the primary CF

Thu, 03 Mar 2016 14:22:53 -0800

Detroit Tigers OF Anthony Gose becomes Detroit's primary center fielder with OF Cameron Maybin (wrist) out four to six weeks with a non-displaced fracture of his left wrist. The Tigers would like Gose to share center field, but they don't have a lot of depth behind him at the position. OF Tyler Collins can play some center, but he also hits left-handed, like Gose. It's unlikely the Tigers would sign free-agent OF Austin Jackson (Cubs), because of his price tag.

Fantasy Tip: Gose hits a lot of ground balls, and speed is by far his best asset. However, he doesn't make much contact, so he won't help you in average, and he's bad against lefties, making him strictly a source of some steals in deep mixed leagues. Maybin's injury doesn't do a whole lot to help his value.

Tigers | No Victor Martinez against Texas

Wed, 30 Sep 2015 14:31:37 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 30. OF Tyler Collins draws into the lineup and is batting fifth against Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Martinez ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. He has heated up at the dish lately, though, with a .324/.375/.559 slash line over his past 40 plate appearances. FantasyScore players should view Collins ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) as a mid-priced flier and far from a lineup lock Wednesday.

Tigers | Rajai Davis hitting ninth

Tue, 08 Sep 2015 13:42:20 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Rajai Davis is hitting ninth and starting in left field against Tampa Bay Rays SP Erasmo Ramirez Tuesday, Sept. 8. OF Tyler Collins is out of the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,700, 7.4% of cap), who is hitting .244 (70-for-287) with six home runs and 22 RBI on the year, is usually only an acceptable sleeper click on FantasyScore when he's hitting atop the batting order. His daily upside is limited tonight.
