Detroit Tigers news, rumors and injuries
Thu, 30 Jul 2015 10:02:17 -0700
Fantasy Tip: With Price gone, Norris is the likely candidate to enter the Tigers' rotation. Norris, a left-hander, has intriguing stuff and went 1-1 with a 3.86 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in five starts (23 1/3 innings) for the Blue Jays earlier this year. He should be immediately added in at least AL-only leagues to get the jump on your league mates if he indeed enters the Detroit rotation.

Fantasy Tip: If you're a Soria owner, it might be a good time to start looking for alternative save routes, since he might not end up in a closing role if he's dealt. Neftali Feliz may be Detroit's next best option for ninth-inning duties if Soria leaves town. Stash him now if you're desperate for saves in any league.

Fantasy Tip: Simon ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has been very inconsistent this year with a 4.46 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in 19 starts, and he's allowed at least four earned runs in six of his last seven starts. Coming off an abbreviated outing due to injury, he's a very poor choice as one of your FantasyScore pitchers tomorrow.

Fantasy Tip: Avila ($3,300, 6.6% of cap), Simon ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) and Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has been regulars for the Tigers this season but could be moved for the right offer. Their fantasy value will be determined by which team they play for and the role on the team.

Fantasy Tip: Soria has been a solid closer for the Tigers this season, but he could lose his fantasy value if he is traded to a team that is looking for a setup man. Owners should monitor the situation over the next few days.

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander allowed one run on four hits in eight innings against the Tampa Bay Rays Wednesday, July 29, to record his first win of the season. He struck out 10 batters and did not walk any batters during the game.
Fantasy Tip: Verlander ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has allowed one run or fewer in three of his last four starts. He is scheduled to face the Kansas City Royals in his next start and may not be the best option for owners on FantasyScore.
Wed, 29 Jul 2015 12:25:49 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Price ($9,100, 18.2% of cap) likely will be an attractive option for several contending teams and could be moved before the deadline if the Tigers receive a good return. Price should be a great pitcher no matter who he plays for and could be an option on FantasyScore whenever he pitches. Cespedes ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) could also be a popular trade option for teams and probably will be a solid option on FantasyScore since he should remain a starter if he is traded.

Fantasy Tip: Iglesias ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has a tough matchup against Chris Archer but is at a nice price on FantasyScore.
Wed, 29 Jul 2015 07:28:07 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cespedes ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) has a .277-7-16 line this month but a tough matchup in front of him. He's 2-for-3 lifetime against Archer and is an everyday option on FantasyScore.

Detroit Tigers C Alex Avila is starting at first base and hitting seventh against Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi Tuesday, July 28. That allows C James McCann to start behind the plate. McCann is hitting sixth in the batting order.
Fantasy Tip: Avila ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) and McCann ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) don't really move the FantasyScore needle very much. Avila is hitting only .188 (21-for-112) with three home runs on the year. McCann has swung the bat a bit better (.289-4-24) and is probably the more intriguing value play at catcher at a slightly more expensive price.

Fantasy Tip: A trade of Leake ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) to the American League Central is unlikely to change his fantasy value all that much. If you're in an AL-only league and in need of upgrades, you should definitely be looking to save your FAAB money for players that cross over in trades later this week.
Mon, 27 Jul 2015 15:43:45 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Farmer ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has made a few appearances for the Tigers this season and has struggled in each appearance. Owners on FantasyScore should avoid Farmer until he is able to record a few solid outings.
Mon, 27 Jul 2015 15:30:38 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Greene ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has allowed 17 earned runs in 13 2/3 innings this month with more walks (seven) than strikeouts (four) during that span. Greene does not much fantasy value as a relief pitcher, so he could be dropped in leagues.
Mon, 27 Jul 2015 14:35:03 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Romine ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is hitting .273 with three RBI in limited playing time this month but is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.
Mon, 27 Jul 2015 13:59:16 -0700
Detroit Tigers SP David Price could become available in a trade if the team struggles in their series against the Tampa Bay Rays this week, according to sources. The team is currently looking to acquire players at this point.
Fantasy Tip: Price ($9,100, 18.2% of cap) likely would become a popular trade target for contending teams if he becomes available before the trade market. He has gone 9-3 with a 2.31 ERA and 134 strikeouts in 20 starts. Price should be a solid starting option against most teams.
