Tigers | Miguel Cabrera out six weeks

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 07:29:48 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera (calf) will miss around six weeks because of a Grade 3 calf strain, according to manager Brad Ausmus.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to monitor Cabrera's ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) progress to see when he will be able to return to the lineup. Alex Avila ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) will receive the first chance to start at first base, but it is not known who will fill the role on a regular basis. Owners on FantasyScore probably should pass on Avila for the time being.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera officially placed on DL

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 06:24:57 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera (calf) was placed on the disabled list with a left calf strain Saturday, July 4.

Fantasy Tip: This was expected, and Cabrera ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) leaves a big hole in the heart of the Tigers' lineup and fantasy rosters. Seasonal owners will want to check back for updates on his recovery timeline and be thankful, in terms of replacement value, first base is arguably the deepest position in most formats. Victor Martinez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is likely to receive the majority of starts at first base while Cabrera is sidelined. Andrew Romine ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Bryan Holaday ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) could also work into the mix occasionally.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera could land on DL

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 19:51:42 -0700

Updating previous reports, Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera (calf) will not play against the Toronto Blue Jays Saturday, July 4. Manager Brad Ausmus said he could land on the 15-day disabled list but the team is awaiting a doctor's opinion.

Fantasy Tip: The team will know more about Cabrera's ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) status once the results of the MRI exam are revealed. If he is placed on the disabled list, he would be ineligible to return to action until after the All-Star break. DH/1B Victor Martinez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) appears to be in line to see most of the action at first base while Cabrera is sidelined, although Andrew Romine ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Bryan Holaday ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) have also seen playing time there this season.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera to undergo MRI exam

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 18:05:36 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera (calf) suffered a strained left calf while running the bases against the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, July 3. He is scheduled to undergo an MRI exam.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) went 2-for-2 Friday before injuring himself on the basepaths during an apparent hit-and-run in the fourth inning. INF Andrew Romine ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) replaced Cabrera at first base, although DH/1B Victor Martinez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is more likely to start at the position if he is forced to miss multiple games. Keep checking back for further updates on Cabrera's status.

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 17:17:26 -0700

Cabrera came up limping during an apparent hit-and-run attempt in the bottom of the fourth inning. He was replaced in the game by INF Andrew Romine.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) was batting .345 with 15 home runs and 53 RBIs through 76 games entering play Friday, July 3. If he is sidelined for an extended period of time, DH/1B Victor Martinez would probably see regular playing time in the field. Check back for updates on Cabrera's status.

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 06:41:31 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera is out of the lineup Wednesday, June 24, with SS Andrew Romine in at first base.

Fantasy Tip: Romine ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is 5-for-12 with two homers in his last three games. They're finding ways to keep him in the lineup. Maybe you should find a spot for him on FantasyScore today against Carlos Carrasco.

Tigers | Miggy torches Indians pitching

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 21:47:47 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-5 Tuesday, June 23, against the Cleveland Indians, and he is now hitting .619 (26-for-42) with five home runs and 16 RBIs in the season series against the Indians. He is also 15-for-22 in five games at Progressive Field.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($6,000; or 12.0% of cap) is obviously a strong FantasyScore play, but even more so when facing Cleveland pitching. He and his Tigers teammates just eat up the Indians.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera has two homers off Gray

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 10:07:41 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera is 4-for-8 with two home runs in his career against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray. The two will face off Wednesday, June 3.

Fantasy Tip: Paying up for Cabrera ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) isn't appealing with him going up against Gray, which is why it could be a nice contrarian play on FantasyScore today.
