Tigers | Miguel Cabrera wins another batting title

Mon, 05 Oct 2015 09:08:21 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera did not play Sunday, Oct. 4, but finished with a .338 average to win the American League batting title over Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts (.320).

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera continues to be one of the best pure hitters in the game, but at age 32 his skills are certainly starting to decline and he's a much bigger injury risk. No longer will he be a lock as a top-five fantasy baseball pick in 2016, but there's still plenty of reason to consider him later in the first round.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera out of lineup Sunday

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 11:27:40 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Frankie Montas Sunday, Oct. 4. INF Jefry Marte will play first base and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Marte ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is batting just .221 with four home runs and 11 RBIs through 77 at-bats. He is not a great first base option in FantasyScore.

Tigers | Another big night for Miguel Cabrera

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 06:42:57 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera went 3-for-4 with a home run and two RBI during the Tigers' 4-3 loss to the Chicago White Sox Saturday, Oct. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera's ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) .338 batting average will win him his fourth American League batting title in five years, as he continues to be one of the best pure hitters in baseball. He has seen his power numbers drop off the past two years, though, as he has posted his two lowest slugging percentages since 2004 the past two seasons. Cabrera remains in the Round 1 conversation for drafts next spring.

Tigers | No Miguel Cabrera Friday

Fri, 02 Oct 2015 16:16:17 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera is not in the starting lineup Friday, Oct. 2. SS Andrew Romine is starting at first base and batting second against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale.

Fantasy Tip: The Tigers are limiting Cabrera ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) down the stretch as he chases yet another batting title. Make sure he's in the lineup first this weekend before picking him on FantasyScore. Romine ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) should be avoided against Sale this evening.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera sitting vs. Rangers

Wed, 30 Sep 2015 14:23:24 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 30. C Alex Avila is starting at first base and batting seventh against Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Season owners chasing counting stats are faced with a tough call over the final days of the season with Cabrera ($6,200, 12.4% of cap). He isn't going to play every day, so you may want to surf your waiver wire for upgrades. FantasyScore players have no reason to be excited about Avila ($3,300, 6.6% of cap). He owns a .192 batting average and .291 slugging percentage for the season, after all.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera will be limited

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 22:09:32 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera will have his starts limited for the remainder of the regular season. He is already qualified for the batting title in the American League.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) is not a recommended play in FantasyScore, as he could start and be pulled early, or might just be used off the bench. His outlook for the remainder of the season is not good.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera returns vs. Twins

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 15:05:46 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera (back) is starting at first base and batting third against Minnesota Twins SP Mike Pelfrey Friday, Sept. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera's ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) .437 on-base percentage paces the American League, and he remains one of the highest-floor options at FantasyScore. However, his .444 slugging percentage and two home runs through 36 games since returning from his calf injury Friday, Aug. 14, highlight a lower ceiling for the star. Don't fret him sitting out Wednesday, Sept. 23, and the matchup is ripe against Pelfrey ($4,900, 9.8% of cap). Cabrera is worth a look at FantasyScore Friday.

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 07:32:17 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera (back) is out of the lineup Wednesday, Sept. 23, because his back has bothered him for a couple of days.

Fantasy Tip: The team is off Thursday, and Miggy ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) could be back Friday against the Minnesota Twins. Cabrera is a daily consideration on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Kinsler ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has a .263-2-10 line this month and faces a solid matchup against youngster Frankie Montas. He is a solid FantasyScore option.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) is 4-for-19 (.211) against Jeff Samardzija and is having a .254-3-9 month. He's an expensive option on FantasyScore today.
