Tigers | Jordan Zimmermann improves to 5-0

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 16:09:52 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Jordan Zimmermann allowed a run on six hits and struck out seven over seven innings to beat the Minnesota Twins Saturday, April 30.

Fantasy Tip: Zimmermann's ERA actually rose to 0.55 to close out a brilliant April. He's pitching like an SP1 now and is a daily consideration whenever his turn comes up.

Tigers | James McCann could return Tuesday

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 09:36:13 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann (ankle) is expected to play in two more rehab games with Class AAA Toledo before rejoining the parent club Tuesday, May 3, for the series against the Cleveland Indians.

Fantasy Tip: McCann is just 2-for-15 with two RBI through his first four rehab games and may not receive as much playing time after he returns due to the performance of C Jarrod Saltalamacchia in his absence. Owners in all fantasy formats should avoid using McCann until he can demonstrate that he is completely healthy.

Tigers | Jose Iglesias returns to lineup

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 09:06:57 -0700

Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias is back in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tyler Duffey Saturday, April 30, batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Although Iglesias is hitting .284 through his first 67 at-bats this year, he's only worth using in AL-only fantasy leagues because he's not much of a contributor for counting stats.

Tigers | Jarrod Saltalamacchia in lineup

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 09:06:02 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is back in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tyler Duffey Saturday, April 30, batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: After a strong start to the 2016 season, Saltalamacchia has cooled off recently, with just one hit in 13 at-bats over the past week. That being said, his six home runs and 15 RBI are nothing to sneeze at, so he's worth a flier in daily fantasy games.

Tigers | Jordan Zimmermann looks to stay hot

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 23:56:39 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Jordan Zimmermann is scheduled to start Saturday, April 30, against the Minnesota Twins. He has allowed just one run in four starts, including 24 1/3 innings to begin the year.

Fantasy Tip: Zimmermann is enjoying his crossover to the American League. He is a must-start in all fantasy formats and a solid option in DFS play, too.

Tigers | James McCann hitless in rehab game

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 23:54:31 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann (ankle) was hitless in four at-bats with a run scored and strikeout in a minor-league rehab game with Class AAA Toledo Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: McCann is having a difficult time at the dish in his rehab stint, hitting just .133 overall. Avoid him in all fantasy leagues and DFS play until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.

Tigers | Cameron Maybin continues rehab

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 23:54:02 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Cameron Maybin (wrist) served as the designated hitter Friday, April 29, in a minor-league rehab game with Class AAA Toledo. He finished 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles, three walks and four runs scored.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin looked tremendous in this one, and is looking like he is close to a return. Wait to see him officially return and knock off the rust before trusting him in AL-only leagues and DFS play.

Tigers | Victor Martinez is on fire

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 23:53:22 -0700

Detroit Tigers DH Victor Martinez collected four hits in five at-bats Friday, April 29, against the Minnesota Twins. He posted a double, solo home run, three runs scored and two RBIs.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez has posted multi-hit efforts in four of his past six, and he has hit safely in 11 of the past 13 games. He is hitting .353 (18-for-53) with eight runs scored, six doubles, three homers and 11 RBIs during the 13-game span. Needless to say he has re-emerged as a must-start fantasy option in all formats and DFS play.

Tigers | Michael Fulmer wins MLB debut

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 23:52:53 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Michael Fulmer allowed two earned runs, seven hits and a walk over five innings to win his major league debut Friday, April 29, against the Minnesota Twins. He struck out four batters while throwing 61 of his 93 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: Fulmer is worth using in AL-only fantasy leagues and DFS, and he is a must-have in long-term keeper formats.

Tigers | Bobby Wilson starting against Twins

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 12:53:52 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Bobby Wilson is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes Friday, April 29. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Saltalamacchia has eight runs, six home runs and 15 RBI to start the year, but his fantasy value is likely about to shrink with James McCann close to returning from injury. Wilson hasn't registered a hit through 10 plate appearances this season, and he owns a .201/.265/.298 slash line for his career. Avoid Wilson in all fantasy formats.

Tigers | Mike Aviles starting vs. Twins

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 12:41:57 -0700

Detroit Tigers INF/OF Mike Aviles is starting at shortstop and batting seventh against Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes Friday, April 29. SS Jose Iglesias is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Aviles hasn't played much this season and is just 3-for-16 without an extra-base hit. He is nothing more than a desperation flier in all fantasy formats Friday. Iglesias is a respectable contact hitter with a .298/.349/.360 slash line dating back to last season, but you can't rely on him for counting stats, and he should be left to cavernous mixed and AL-only formats.

Tigers | Cameron Maybin to begin rehab assignment

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 11:30:00 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Cameron Maybin (shoulder) will start his rehab assignment with Class AAA Toledo Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin is expected to platoon in center field with Anthony Gose once he's ready to return. The former Atlanta Brave has a moderate mix of power and speed, but his limited playing time should keep his ownership to cavernous mixed and AL-only setups.

Tigers | James McCann could rejoin team

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 15:22:30 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann (ankle) might rejoin the team for their series in Minnesota against the Twins over the weekend. In three rehab games for Class AAA Toledo, he's hitting .182.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately for McCann, his backup, Jarrod Saltalamacchia has been flourishing while he's been out. In fact, despite a .231 batting average, Salty now has six home runs and 15 RBI. As a result, McCann's stock isn't too high right now, as he does not look like a dependable option in leagues that start one catcher. Owners should wait to see how much playing time he gets once he returns.

Tigers | Anibal Sanchez tweaks delivery again

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 14:58:07 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez tweaked his delivery for the second time this season in his outing Thursday, April 28, opposite the Oakland Athletics. He brought back the rotation that sees him turn his back on the batter.

Fantasy Tip: While he now has three wins on the year after defeating the A's, Sanchez is doing it in ugly fashion, as he currently holds a 6.08 ERA. And after yielding 10 baserunners, including a disastrous seven walks, on Thursday, Sanchez now has a 1.86 WHIP through his first five starts. He's a risky player to start in most leagues, and at this point, owners should only be deploying him if he has an advantageous matchup.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler stays hot

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 13:30:16 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler went 2-for-4 with two runs, a double, an RBI and a walk during the Tigers' 7-3 win over the Oakland Athletics Thursday, April 28.

Fantasy Tip: Kinsler has now registered a hit in 18 of 20 games this season and sits with a .345/.376/.529 slash line. He has also padded the counting stats by collecting 20 runs, four home runs, 13 RBI and a stolen base. At 33, Kinsler doesn't offer the power-speed combo he did in his prime, but his strong start has him among the best fantasy options at the keystone.
