The Detroit Tigers have activated OF Justin Upton from the bereavement list and he will be in the starting lineup against the Kansas City Royals Sunday, July 17. In a corresponding move, OF Steven Moya was optioned to Class AAA Toledo.
Fantasy Tip: Although Moya has shown flashes of brilliance this season, his high strikeout totals (35 through 95 at-bats) and shaky defense explain why he was sent to the minors instead of OF Tyler Collins. Upton is batting just .235 with nine home runs and 38 RBI and has struck out 112 times through 328 at-bats, in what has turned out to be a nightmarish first season for him in the American League.

Detroit Tigers OF Steven Moya is out of the lineup Saturday, July 16, with OF Mike Aviles hitting sixth.
Fantasy Tip: Aviles is hitting just .209 and hasn't done much against lefties to warrant the start against Danny Duffy.

Detroit Tigers C James McCann and SS Jose Iglesias are back in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Sunday, July 10. In addition, INF/OF Mike Aviles is batting seventh and playing right field, with OF Steven Moya receiving the day off.
Fantasy Tip: After a disastrous beginning to 2016, McCann is batting .267 in 90 at-bats since June 1, with four homers and 13 RBI, making him a viable catching option in all fantasy formats. Aviles is just 3-for-18 at the plate this month and is not a great option anywhere.

Detroit Tigers OF Steven Moya is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays left-handed SP J.A. Happ Friday, July 8. INF/OF Mike Aviles is starting in right field and is hitting eighth.
Fantasy Tip: Aviles has very limited offensive upside with his .217/.272/.264 slash line, one home run and six RBI on the season. He especially is unlikely to make a daily impact hitting low in Detroit's lineup tonight. Look elsewhere.

Detroit Tigers rookie OF Steven Moya went 2-for-4 with a fifth-inning solo blast - his fifth homer of the season - versus the Cleveland Indians on Monday, July 4.
Fantasy Tip: Moya is striking out a ton - he has 24 in 73 at-bats, so it is hard to believe he'll keep hitting over .300 for much longer, but the power he displayed throughout most of his minor-league career is legit. Although he has been on the radar of dynasty- and keeper-league owners for years, it's probably still too early to consider him a mixed-league option. He does warrant a roster spot in deeper leagues, however.

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera and OF Steven Moya are back in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer Sunday, July 3. In addition, INF/OF Andrew Romine is batting ninth and starting in center field, with OF Cameron Maybin receiving the day off.
Fantasy Tip: Cabrera is 7-for-20 with two home runs and six RBI over the past week, while Moya is batting .324 with four homers in 34 at-bats since June 1. Both should be viewed as viable starting options in all fantasy formats. Romine is hitting just .185 through 54 at-bats and should be avoided everywhere.
