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.

Tigers | Daniel Norris starting Sunday

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 13:47:05 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Daniel Norris will start against the Baltimore Orioles Sunday, Aug. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Norris made five starts for the Toronto Blue Jays this season and returned a 3.86 ERA, but he proved he wasn't ready for the big leagues with a 5.00 FIP and a 1.50 WHIP. He is worth considering for a speculative add in deep mixed leagues, but he stands as a risky start Sunday, especially for FantasyScore owners.

Tigers | Anthony Gose taking day off

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 13:11:02 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Anthony Gose is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 30. OF Rajai Davis is starting in center field and hitting ninth against Baltimore Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez.

Fantasy Tip: Both Gose and Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) have fizzled out at the plate lately, and Davis has only six hits in 43 at-bats (.140) in July with no homers or RBI. He typically is only attractive to daily gamers when he's facing left-handers, too, so he should be considered a weak option on FantasyScore tonight, especially while hitting ninth.

Tigers | Alex Avila out Thursday

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 13:09:10 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Alex Avila is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 30. C James McCann is behind the plate and is hitting seventh against Baltimore Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez.

Fantasy Tip: McCann ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is rather expensive for a backup catcher, but he is batting .280 (63-for-225) with four home runs and 24 RBI on the season. He remains more of a low-end catching commodity for daily gamers, though.

Tigers | Tigers get Daniel Norris

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 10:02:17 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP David Price was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays Thursday, July 30, in exchange for Ps Daniel Norris, Matt Boyd and Jairo Labourt.

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.

Tigers | Joakim Soria about to be dealt?

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 09:48:39 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Tigers RP Joakim Soria is a trade candidate, and the Tigers are working to trade him before the deadline Friday, July 31.

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.

Tigers | Alfredo Simon set to start Thursday

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 16:40:56 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon (groin) is set to face the Baltimore Orioles Thursday, July 30, after leaving his last start over the weekend early with a groin strain.

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.
