Tigers | Tyler Collins on track for LF job

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 12:08:17 -0700

Detroit Free Press OF Tyler Collins is being given a chance to win the starting left field job outright now that OF Yoenis Cespedes has been traded. Entering this week, Collins was hitting .280 in 14 games since the Cespedes trade. Collins has hit safely in nine of 12 starts this month.

Fantasy Tip: Collins ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) can be a decent low-cost source of hits and batting average if he works through some of the shortcomings in his game. He has the backing of manager Brad Ausmus and seems to be a regular since Cespedes was dealt at the deadline.

Tigers | Tyler Collins batting second vs. Texas

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 14:32:01 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Tyler Collins is batting second against Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis Friday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Collins ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has fared well when given a chance this season, and he stands as a viable value play at FantasyScore Friday, especially hitting second in the lineup. He is batting .324 with four doubles and five RBI over 39 plate appearances in August.

Tigers | Tyler Collins draws into the lineup

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 13:24:18 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Tyler Collins is starting in left field and batting second against Kansas City Royals SP Johnny Cueto Monday, Aug. 10. OF Rajai Davis is not in the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Collins ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has handled the bat nicely over his 66 plate appearances with a .270 batting average and would typically stand as an excellent FantasyScore option. Facing Cueto ($9,300, 18.6% of cap) is far from ideal, though, so Collins checks out as an extremely risky daily play. Davis ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) could see his role revert back to only facing left-handed pitchers, if Collins continues to hit well.

Tigers | Three OFs sharing time at two positions

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 18:04:01 -0700

Detroit Tigers OFs Tyler Collins, Rajai Davis and Anthony Gose are expected to share time in left field and center field for the remainder of the season, with OF J.D. Martinez serving as the full-time right fielder.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has played all three outfield positions in 2015, while Gose ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has exclusively played center field and Collins has manned the two corner outfield positions. Expect to see Gose and Collins in the lineup versus righties, with Davis getting playing time against lefties.

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 | Tyler Collins comes out of lineup

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 15:23:31 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Tyler Collins will come out of the lineup Tuesday, June 9, against the Chicago Cubs. 2B Josh Wilson will start at third base and bat eighth, while 3B Nick Castellanos will cover designated hitter duties.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has two singles and one strikeout in three plate appearances against left-handers this season. Wilson should be avoided on FantasyScore with a very difficult matchup against Lester.

Tigers | Tyler Collins out Saturday

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 14:04:55 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Tyler Collins is out of the lineup Saturday, June 6, against the Chicago White Sox. 2B Josh Wilson will make his second consecutive start at third base, and he will bat eighth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson went 1-for-4 with a strikeout in his first major league game of the season Friday. Wilson can continue to be ignored on FantasyScore unless he manages to move up the batting order.

Sat, 23 May 2015 11:54:10 -0700

Tigers | Tyler Collins the DH Wednesday

Wed, 20 May 2015 11:19:11 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Tyler Collins is serving as the designated hitter and hitting sixth in the batting order against Milwaukee Brewers SP Kyle Lohse Wednesday, May 20.

Fantasy Tip: Collins will be a bottom-of-the-barrel option at FantasyScore for the time being, and he could see occasional starts in the outfield and DH with Victor Martinez (knee) on the DL.
