Tigers | Shane Greene close to return

Tue, 31 May 2016 07:28:42 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Shane Greene (finger), who has been on the disabled list for more than a month with a blister on his middle finger, is expected to make his final rehab start for Class AAA Toledo Tuesday, May 31. However, it's not clear if Green will be used as a starter or reliever when he comes off the DL.

Fantasy Tip: Greene was sporting a 6.28 ERA with only 11 strikeouts in 14 1/3 innings over three starts before his injury, so he was hardly on the fantasy radar to begin with. There's a good chance he'll return as a reliever, too, so he shouldn't be coveted by many once he's fully healthy.

Tigers | Jordan Zimmermann on track for Friday

Mon, 30 May 2016 15:32:27 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Jordan Zimmermann (groin) participated in fielding drills Monday, May 30, and he will throw a bullpen session Tuesday, May 31, and remains on track to start against the Chicago White Sox Friday, June 3.

Fantasy Tip: Zimmermann has been a solid mid-rotation option for fantasy owners this season, as he sits with seven wins and a 2.52 ERA thus far. Stay tuned for updates, but Zimmermann looks like he'll avoid the disabled list and return to the mound Friday.

Tigers | Jordan Zimmermann throws bullpen session

Mon, 30 May 2016 06:14:55 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Jordan Zimmermann (groin) threw a bullpen session Sunday, May 29, and said he felt good during the session. He is scheduled to throw another bullpen session Tuesday, May 31.

Fantasy Tip: Zimmermann has avoided the disabled list for now, but it is not known when his next start will be. He could start in the near future if his next bullpen session goes well. He has seven wins and a 2.52 ERA so far this season and should be used in all fantasy leagues when he is healthy.

Tigers | James McCann returns to lineup

Sun, 29 May 2016 09:42:24 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann will bat eighth against Oakland Athletics SP Rich Hill Sunday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: McCann is batting just .155 with one home run and eight RBI through 71 at-bats. He should be avoided in all fantasy formats for now.

Tigers | Victor Martinez drives in two more

Sat, 28 May 2016 17:33:32 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and a run scored in a 12-3 loss to the Oakland Athletics Saturday, May 28, and he has seven RBI in his last six games.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez is healthy and currently hitting .341. He has limited position eligibility, but he is still worth owning in all formats.

Tigers | Jarrod Saltalamacchia catching Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 10:05:52 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Jarrod Saltalamacchia will bat eighth and start behind the plate against Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Hahn Saturday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: Saltalamacchia is batting .294 with six home runs and 17 RBI in 51 at-bats on the road in 2016 but most of this damage was done during the first few weeks of the season, so fantasy owners shouldn't be fooled. He's hitting just .171 (6-for-35) with one home run and four RBI during the month of May and should be avoided in all formats Saturday.

Tigers | Steven Moya sent down

Sat, 28 May 2016 07:49:35 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Steven Moya was sent to the minors Friday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Moya has a promising future with elite power for the Tigers, but he wasn't seeing enough playing time after Cameron Maybin had returned from the DL. There's a good chance we see Moya back in the bigs later this year when rosters expand, and he should fight for a roster spot in spring training in 2017. Keep him stashed in dynasty leagues, but you can cut him loose for now everywhere else.

Tigers | Michael Fulmer has terrific start

Sat, 28 May 2016 06:01:52 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Michael Fulmer pitched 7 2/3 scoreless innings against the Oakland Athletics Friday, May 27, to pick up his fourth win of the season. He allowed three hits during the game, while striking out three batters and walking one.

Fantasy Tip: Fulmer has pitched at least seven innings in his last two starts and has allowed only one run during that span. He is scheduled to face the New York Yankees in his next start and could be a sleeper option in some daily fantasy leagues.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler productive at plate

Sat, 28 May 2016 05:45:44 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler went 3-for-5 against the Oakland Athletics Friday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Kinsler has recorded at least one hit in 10 of his last 11 games with five multi-hit games during that span. He should be in the starting lineup most days and is a solid starting option in all leagues.

Tigers | Shane Greene's role is up in the air

Fri, 27 May 2016 16:18:17 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Shane Greene (finger) will "ideally" have another rehab start with Class AAA Toledo, but the organization is also considering whether Greene is better suited to start or pitch out of the bullpen, bench coach Gene Lamont said Friday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Greene has a 6.80 ERA and 5.6 K/9 through 98 innings over the past two seasons. At this point, he is a desperation own and start in cavernous mixed and AL-only formats.

Tigers | Jordan Zimmermann throws from flat ground

Fri, 27 May 2016 16:05:27 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Jordan Zimmermann (groin) threw from flat ground on the field Friday, May 27, and he will throw a bullpen session Sunday, May 29, before the organization will determine if a stint on the disabled list is required.

Fantasy Tip: Zimmermann is 7-2 with a 2.52 ERA and 1.13 WHIP over nine starts, but like it has been for most of his career, he isn't striking out many batters with just 40 punchouts through 60 2/3 innings. If he avoids the DL, you shouldn't fret starting him in yearly leagues, but he is probably a little too risky for daily contests. Check back for the official word on what's next for Zimmermann.

Tigers | Justin Upton playing Friday

Fri, 27 May 2016 16:00:11 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Justin Upton (quadriceps) is back in the starting lineup and is hitting sixth against Oakland Athletics SP Sean Manaea Friday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Upton has picked things up a bit from his dismal April, but he's still only hitting .225 (16-for-71) this month with no home runs and 28 strikeouts. We wouldn't blame you if you continue to bench him until he breaks out of this extended slump.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler back from illness

Fri, 27 May 2016 15:56:43 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler (illness) is back in the lineup in his customary leadoff spot against Oakland Athletics SP Sean Manaea Friday, May 27. As a result, OF Cameron Maybin moves down to seventh in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Kinsler should immediately thrown back into all starting lineups. The leadoff man has excelled this year with a .306/.354/.519 slash line with 10 home runs, 24 RBI and four steals. Maybin takes a bit of a daily hit but has been remarkable since he returned from the DL. Keep him in your lineups.

Tigers | Matt Boyd starting vs. Oakland Saturday

Fri, 27 May 2016 13:34:48 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Matt Boyd will be officially recalled from Class AAA Toledo before starting the against the Oakland Athletics Saturday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: Through 12 career starts, Boyd has a 7.46 ERA and 6.8 K/9. Those numbers don't play in any fantasy format, and he should be considered a desperation add in deep mixed and AL-only leagues. He has pitched well for Toledo, though, and boasts a 2.06 ERA with 41 punchouts through 48 innings, so there is some upside.

Tigers | Anibal Sanchez struggles again Wednesday

Wed, 25 May 2016 17:07:34 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez (3-6) allowed six runs (three earned) on eight hits over six innings in a loss to the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday, May 25, with one walk and five strikeouts. It marked the fifth consecutive start where he has given up at least four runs.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez should be avoided in all formats due to his recent struggles, although his ERA actually dropped from 6.23 to 6.04 because three of the runs he allowed Wednesday were unearned. He is slated to make his next start against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Tuesday, May 31.
