Tigers | Matt Boyd to start Wednesday

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 11:34:44 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Matt Boyd will make the start against the Kansas City Royals Wednesday, Aug. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Boyd, a lefty, was 3-1 with a 2.77 ERA and 0.97 WHIP in six starts with Class AAA Buffalo in the Toronto Blue Jays organization this year before coming over in the trade involving David Price. He'll be making his debut against a Royals team that ranks 10th in OPS against lefties (.712). Ignore Boyd tomorrow on FantasyScore.

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 19:56:29 -0700

Tigers | Knee not an issue for J.D. Martinez

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 19:47:55 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF J.D. Martinez (knee) went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run in a 6-1 win over the Baltimore Orioles Sunday, Aug. 2, one day after leaving early after fouling a ball of his knee.

Fantasy Tip: It is pretty safe to say that his knee wasn't much of an issue, and moving forward, Martinez ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) should be safe to use at FantasyScore.

Tigers | Victor Martinez making changes

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 07:12:22 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) should be avoided on FantasyScore until he starts posting some positive results.

Tigers | J.D. Martinez injures knee

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 19:12:22 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF J.D. Martinez (knee) left in the third inning against the Baltimore Orioles after fouling a ball of his left knee Saturday, Aug. 1. X-rays were negative, and he is considered day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) has been one of the top sluggers in the league this season, but make sure to check his status in the coming days to make sure he is in the lineup before using him at FantasyScore.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler piling up hits

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 18:58:34 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler went 3-for-4 with a double in a 6-2 loss to the Baltimore Orioles Saturday, Aug. 1, and he has 10 hits in his last three games.

Fantasy Tip: Kinsler ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) hit .366 in July, and he shows no signs of slowing down. Don't hesitate to take advantage of his hot streak at FantasyScore.

Tigers | Alex Avila playing first base

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 12:31:21 -0700

Detroit Tigers C/1B Alex Avila will start at first base and bat eighth against Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman Saturday, Aug. 1. C James McCann will start behind the plate and bat sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Avila ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is just 1-for-14 over the past week and is hitting .143 on the road in 70 at-bats this season. Avoid him at all costs in FantasyScore. On the other hand, McCann ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is hitting .261 over the past week and is hitting .288 away from Comerica Park, making him worthy of consideration for your lineup tonight.

Tigers | Three OFs sharing time at two positions

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 18:04:01 -0700

Detroit Tigers OFs Tyler Collins, Rajai Davis and Anthony Gose are expected to share time in left field and center field for the remainder of the season, with OF J.D. Martinez serving as the full-time right fielder.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has played all three outfield positions in 2015, while Gose ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has exclusively played center field and Collins has manned the two corner outfield positions. Expect to see Gose and Collins in the lineup versus righties, with Davis getting playing time against lefties.

Tigers | DET wants reunion with Yoenis Cespedes

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 17:24:32 -0700

The Detroit Tigers traded OF Yoenis Cespedes to the New York Mets under the belief that he would return to Detroit as a free agent during the offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) was hitting .293 with 18 home runs and 63 RBIs in 102 games for the Tigers before winding up in the National League for the first time in his career. His stats may take a slight tumble because Citi Field is not as hitter-friendly as Comerica Park.

Tigers | Yoenis Cespedes dealt for prospects

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 13:39:25 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes was traded to the New York Mets at the trade deadline Friday, July 31, in exchange for Ps Michael Fulmer and Luis Cessa.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes' departure opens up an outfield spot in Detroit, and Rajai Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) and Anthony Gose ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) should benefit from more consistent playing time instead of being stuck in a platoon. Davis and Gose will receive a boost in value in traditional leagues, but at FantasyScore, they're both still midrange value plays for their speed. With Cespedes gone, using pitchers against Detroit is now much more palatable.

Tigers | Detroit close to trading Yoenis Cespedes

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 12:38:12 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes is close to being traded away by the Tigers. The Chicago White Sox are involved in talks for him but aren't considered to be favorites.

Fantasy Tip: The New York Mets have been pushing hard to land Cespedes after losing out on Carlos Gomez the other day. Cespedes' ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) is unlikely to lose a ton of fantasy value if he goes to the Mets or another National League club, but he will be leaving a nice hitter's park in Detroit.

Tigers | Yoenis Cespedes swinging hot bat

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 20:11:57 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes went 3-for-5 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored in a 9-8 win over the Baltimore Orioles Thursday, July 30, and he has four home runs in his last six games.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) has three homers in his last four games and has six RBI and three multi-hit games during the stretch. He makes a strong play at FantasyScore right now, especially against right-handed pitching.

Tigers | Bruce Rondon not ready to close?

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 16:19:24 -0700

Detroit Tigers RP Bruce Rondon may not be ready to close, according to general manager Dave Dombrowski Thursday, July 30. Dombrowski went on to say he thinks Rondon has the chance to close.

Fantasy Tip: Rondon has a 8.25 ERA through just 12.0 innings this season, but he does have a strikeout rate of 13.50. He's a risky option, but if he is named the closer, Rondon will be worth picking up in 12-team leagues.

Tigers | JaCoby Jones acquired by Detroit

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 16:12:38 -0700

The Detroit Tigers acquired SS JaCoby Jones from the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday, July 30, in exchange for RP Joakim Soria. The Tigers view Jones as an everyday player at the major-league level, but he will start off playing shortstop for Class AA Erie.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has played the bulk of his season at high-A Bradenton for the Pirates, and he hit .253 with 10 home runs and 14 stolen bases through 423 plate appearances. He could be someone to follow next spring training.

Tigers | Joakim Soria on his way to Bucs

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 15:33:53 -0700

The Detroit Tigers have traded RP Joakim Soria to the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday, July 30, pending physicals, per sources.

Fantasy Tip: RPs Bruce Rondon and Al Alburquerque are the players listed immediately below Soria on the Tigers' depth chart, while Neftali Feliz may also receive a shot. Rondon has the most upside, but Alburqueque and Feliz are the ones with previous closing experience. The Tigers haven't said who will take over the closer's job and a committee approach may be most likely.
