Tigers | Miguel Cabrera back in a groove

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 21:26:29 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run Wednesday, Aug. 26, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) kills left-handed pitching, and he has a monster average and power numbers at home in cavernous Comerica Park. He has hit safely in 11 straight games going 17-for-46 (.370) with two homers, 10 RBIs and 12 runs scored.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera returning to form

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 19:36:13 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-3 with a home run, a double, three RBI, two runs scored and two walks in a 6-5 loss to the Houston Astros Sunday, Aug. 16.

Fantasy Tip: After going hitless in his first game off the disabled list, Cabrera ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) has delivered back-to-back two-hit games. He looks to be back in top form and should be a regular in lineups at FantasyScore.

Tigers | Alex Avila to resume catching

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 17:47:45 -0700

Detroit Tigers C/1B Alex Avila will see most of his playing time behind the plate, as a result of 1B Miguel Cabrera returning from the disabled list. However, manager Brad Ausmus said C James McCann will continue to serve as the team's primary backstop.

Fantasy Tip: Entering play Friday, Aug. 14, McCann ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) was batting .281 with five home runs and 26 RBIs through 79 contests. Avila ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is only batting .178 through 49 games this season and is not a great option in FantasyScore.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera could rest Saturday

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 17:34:41 -0700

Detroit Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said 1B Miguel Cabrera is expected to either serve as the designated hitter or get the day off against the Houston Astros Saturday, Aug. 15, in order to limit the amount of wear and tear on his calf.

Fantasy Tip: With the Tigers out of the playoff hunt, there isn't much urgency for the team to have Cabrera ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) playing on an everyday basis. Expect Detroit to continue giving Cabrera frequent days off for the remainder of the season.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera activated, batting third

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 15:43:45 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera (calf) is starting at first base and batting third against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Friday, Aug. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Look for Cabrera ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) to have a few tough games after a length absence, but it isn't a guarantee, either. He is an elite hitter, and you can return him to your seasonal lineups immediately. Giving him a game or two to shake off the rust isn't out of the question, though, especially at FantasyScore.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera nearing a return

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 14:16:57 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera (calf) will run the bases before the game Wednesday, Aug. 12, and if all goes well, there is a good chance he will be activated Friday, Aug. 14, for the weekend series against the Houston Astros. Manager Brad Ausmus said Cabrera could see time as the designated hitter and will likely only play the games Friday and Sunday, Aug. 16.

Fantasy Tip: There could be a lull in production initially, but Cabrera ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) is a top-tier hitter, and it shouldn't be long before it is business as usual for the star. After all, he still leads the American League in batting average (.350) and on-base percentage (.456). Continue to check back for updates on Cabrera.

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera (calf) took batting practice Tuesday, Aug. 11, and he could return from the disabled list as soon as this weekend, according to manager Brad Ausmus.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) should immediately be returned to all starting lineups when he returns, even though he hasn't played since July 3.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera does light running

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 18:37:31 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera (calf) did some light running around the bases during batting practice Monday, Aug. 10. The big test is expected to be Tuesday, Aug. 11, when he takes live batting practice.

Fantasy Tip: Miggy ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) could head out on a minor-league rehab assignment sometime soon, and barring any setbacks he might return to the big club before the end of the month. FantasyScore players will want to avoid him until he can officially return and prove his health. Also, give him a game or two to knock off the rust.

Sun, 09 Aug 2015 11:18:57 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera (calf) is expected to take live batting practice Tuesday, Aug. 11, in addition to running the bases.

Fantasy Tip: It is uncertain if Cabrera ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) will need to go on a minor league rehab assignment before returning to action. Manager Brad Ausmus believes he could be activated from the disabled list near the end of the club's upcoming eight-game road trip or at the beginning of a homestand against the Texas Rangers Aug. 20. Continue to stash Cabrera in all fantasy formats.

Sun, 09 Aug 2015 07:21:55 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Continue to stash Cabrera ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) in all seasonal formats. He won't be rushed back to the lineup with the Tigers packing it in this season, though. Check back for updates as the slugger works his way back to health.
