Tigers | Jose Iglesias hitting second vs. Boston

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 08:07:46 -0700

Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias is batting second against Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez Wednesday, July 27.

Fantasy Tip: Iglesias often climbs up the batting order against southpaws, and he's a viable flier in daily contests hitting second Wednesday. In seasonal settings, Iglesias is nothing more than a middling starter in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues.

Tigers | No Cameron Maybin vs. Boston

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 08:02:42 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Cameron Maybin (back) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 27. OF Mike Aviles draws into the lineup and is batting seventh against Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin hasn't been able to kick the injury bug this season, but when on the field, he's been solid. He has 36 runs, 26 RBI and 12 stolen bases with a .325 batting average over 58 games. Aviles owns a .518 OPS this season and is nothing more than a desperation flier in daily contests and a depth piece in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues.

Tigers | Mike Pelfrey shaky in no-decision

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 20:04:22 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Mike Pelfrey allowed five earned runs, six hits and two walks with just one strikeout over five innings in a no-decision Tuesday, July 26, against the Boston Red Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Pelfrey has been slightly better lately, but he is still nothing more than a fantasy option in the deepest of NL-only formats and as a salary saver in DFS.

Tigers | Salty collects three hits in win

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 20:03:39 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Jarrod Saltalamacchia went 3-for-4 with a pair of RBIs and a walk Tuesday, July 26, against the Boston Red Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the big game Salty is still hitting just .206 on the season. He is a decent source of power in deeper AL-only leagues, but he hurts those in rotisserie formats with his poor average.

Tigers | Cameron Maybin, James McCann out

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 13:43:48 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Cameron Maybin (back) and C James McCann are not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright Tuesday, July 26. OF Tyler Collins will start in center field, while 3B Mike Aviles will start in right field and is batting seventh. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Aviles is hitting only .180 this month and has received solid playing time during that span. Owners probably should avoid him in their leagues. Saltalamacchia has only three hits in his last 12 games and should only be a starting option in two-catcher leagues.

Tigers | J.D. Martinez begins rehab stint

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 06:04:49 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF J.D. Martinez (elbow) will begin a rehab stint at Class AAA Toledo Tuesday, July 26, where he's serve as the designated hitter. Martinez said he's comfortable throwing from 150 feet and can hit the cutoff man. He said he's more worried about the stress on his elbow from hitting than throwing.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez is expected back in the next couple of weeks, and he could provide a decent power boost the final couple of months. Keep him stashed everywhere.

Tigers | Justin Verlander picks up 10th win

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 21:24:40 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander allowed one earned run, five hits and two walks with five strikeouts over six innings with a win Monday, July 25, against the Boston Red Sox for his 10th victory of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander has quality starts in four of his five July outings, going 3-0 with a 1.60 ERA during the span. He has re-emerged as a must-start in all fantasy formats.

Tigers | Twos wild for Jose Iglesias

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 21:24:06 -0700

Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias went 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored and a two-run home run Monday, July 25, against the Boston Red Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Iglesias has taken a step backward in the month of July after 10 extra-base hits and 10 RBIs in June. He is still a decent AL-only fantasy option and DFS play as a mid-tier option.

Tigers | Daniel Norris set for next rehab start

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 17:13:40 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Daniel Norris (oblique) has another rehab start scheduled for Class AA Erie.

Fantasy Tip: Norris has been out for the past few weeks with his oblique issue, but apparently needs to get more rehab work in before rejoining the Tigers. In a start for Class AAA Toledo on Saturday, July 23, Norris was tagged for five runs on five hits in just 4 2/3 innings. He'll have potential to make useful contributions to teams in deep fantasy leagues the rest of the way.

Tigers | Cameron Maybin sitting out

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 13:41:33 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Cameron Maybin is out of the starting lineup again Monday, July 25. SS Andrew Romine is starting in center field and batting ninth against Boston Red Sox SP Drew Pomeranz. Also, SS Jose Iglesias is hitting second for the second straight day.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin could be dealing with an injury since he's been out two days in a row. Check back for an update. Romine and Iglesias are both light-hitting middle infielders, but if you must take a flier on a deep sleeper in daily leagues it should be Iglesias since he's hitting in the heart of a powerful lineup. He's hitting just .255 on the year, though, with three homers and 21 RBI, so don't expect much.

Tigers | Detroit resting two starters

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 11:38:22 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Tyler Collins and OF Cameron Maybin are not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Sunday, July 24. 3B Mike Aviles will start in right field and is batting seventh. SS Andrew Romine will start in center field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Aviles is hitting .250 over the last seven days but has not recorded an RBI in his last 19 games. Owners should be able to find better options to use. Romine is hitting only .227 in limited playing time this season and is not a strong fantasy option.

Tigers | Early August return for J.D. Martinez

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 23:42:06 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF J.D. Martinez (elbow) might be back in early August, general manager Al Avila said Saturday, July 23. Martinez is making his way back from a broken elbow.

Fantasy Tip: When healthy Martinez is a stud for fantasy owners, but it remains to be seen how effective he'll be early on in his return. A broken elbow is a serious injury and he might have quite a bit of rust.

Tigers | Jordan Zimmermann to rehab Sunday

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 23:41:40 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Jordan Zimmermann (neck) remains on track to make a minor-league rehab start Sunday, July 24, for Class AAA Toledo. General manager Al Avila said Zimmermann might need a second rehab start.

Fantasy Tip: Avoid Zimmermann in all fantasy leagues until he can officially return and prove his health in a full start or two without any setbacks.

Tigers | Daniel Norris roughed up in rehab

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 23:41:11 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Daniel Norris (oblique) allowed five earned runs and five hits over 4 2/3 innings in a minor-league rehab start for Class AAA Toledo Saturday, July 23. General manager Al Avila said if there are no setbacks Norris would join the team Monday, July 25, in Boston.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain what role Norris will fill, as he could move into the rotation spot of Anibal Sanchez or work in middle relief. Avoid him in all fantasy leagues until his role becomes clear.
