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.

Tigers | Detroit making impending FAs available

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 13:25:41 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Alex Avila, SP Alfredo Simon and OF Rajai Davis could be moved before the trade deadline since they will become free agents after the season.

Fantasy Tip: Avila ($3,300, 6.6% of cap), Simon ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) and Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has been regulars for the Tigers this season but could be moved for the right offer. Their fantasy value will be determined by which team they play for and the role on the team.

Tigers | Joakim Soria could be moved

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 13:16:46 -0700

Detroit Tigers RP Joakim Soria may be a player the Tigers are willing to trade before the trade deadline since he will be a free agent this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Soria has been a solid closer for the Tigers this season, but he could lose his fantasy value if he is traded to a team that is looking for a setup man. Owners should monitor the situation over the next few days.

Tigers | Justin Verlander earns first win

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 12:42:34 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander allowed one run on four hits in eight innings against the Tampa Bay Rays Wednesday, July 29, to record his first win of the season. He struck out 10 batters and did not walk any batters during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has allowed one run or fewer in three of his last four starts. He is scheduled to face the Kansas City Royals in his next start and may not be the best option for owners on FantasyScore.

Tigers | David Price, Yoenis Cespedes available

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 12:25:49 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP David Price and OF Yoenis Cespedes are players the Tigers are now willing to listen to trade offers for leading up to the trade deadline.

Fantasy Tip: Price ($9,100, 18.2% of cap) likely will be an attractive option for several contending teams and could be moved before the deadline if the Tigers receive a good return. Price should be a great pitcher no matter who he plays for and could be an option on FantasyScore whenever he pitches. Cespedes ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) could also be a popular trade option for teams and probably will be a solid option on FantasyScore since he should remain a starter if he is traded.

Tigers | Jose Iglesias bumped up to No. 2

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 07:33:28 -0700

Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias was bumped up to second in the order Wednesday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Iglesias ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has a tough matchup against Chris Archer but is at a nice price on FantasyScore.

Tigers | Yoenis Cespedes hitting third

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 07:28:07 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes is hitting third Wednesday, July 29, against Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) has a .277-7-16 line this month but a tough matchup in front of him. He's 2-for-3 lifetime against Archer and is an everyday option on FantasyScore.

Tigers | Alex Avila starting at 1B

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 15:06:32 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Alex Avila is starting at first base and hitting seventh against Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi Tuesday, July 28. That allows C James McCann to start behind the plate. McCann is hitting sixth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Avila ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) and McCann ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) don't really move the FantasyScore needle very much. Avila is hitting only .188 (21-for-112) with three home runs on the year. McCann has swung the bat a bit better (.289-4-24) and is probably the more intriguing value play at catcher at a slightly more expensive price.

Tigers | Detroit interested in Mike Leake?

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 10:56:19 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake could draw interest from the Detroit Tigers if they determine this week that they have a realistic shot at the American League Wild Card race.

Fantasy Tip: A trade of Leake ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) to the American League Central is unlikely to change his fantasy value all that much. If you're in an AL-only league and in need of upgrades, you should definitely be looking to save your FAAB money for players that cross over in trades later this week.

Tigers | Buck Farmer starting Friday

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 15:43:45 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Buck Farmer will be the starting pitcher against the Baltimore Orioles Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Farmer ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has made a few appearances for the Tigers this season and has struggled in each appearance. Owners on FantasyScore should avoid Farmer until he is able to record a few solid outings.

Tigers | Shane Greene loses rotation spot

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 15:30:38 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Shane Greene will be moved to the bullpen, according to manager Brad Ausmus.

Fantasy Tip: Greene ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has allowed 17 earned runs in 13 2/3 innings this month with more walks (seven) than strikeouts (four) during that span. Greene does not much fantasy value as a relief pitcher, so he could be dropped in leagues.

Tigers | Andrew Romine in the lineup

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 14:35:03 -0700

Detroit Tigers SS Andrew Romine will start in first base against Tampa Bay Rays SP Nathan Karns Monday, July 27, and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Romine ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is hitting .273 with three RBI in limited playing time this month but is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Tigers | David Price may become available

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 13:59:16 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP David Price could become available in a trade if the team struggles in their series against the Tampa Bay Rays this week, according to sources. The team is currently looking to acquire players at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Price ($9,100, 18.2% of cap) likely would become a popular trade target for contending teams if he becomes available before the trade market. He has gone 9-3 with a 2.31 ERA and 134 strikeouts in 20 starts. Price should be a solid starting option against most teams.

Tigers | Alfredo Simon to work on bike

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 09:33:54 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon (groin), who left his start Saturday, July 25, with a slight groin injury, will work on a bike instead of jogging as he prepares for his next start.

Fantasy Tip: Simon ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) allowed at least four earned runs in all but his latest start over the weekend in the month of July. That means he's a bad option on FantasyScore his next time out, especially coming off an injury.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera to take BP

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 09:27:25 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera (calf) ran on an anti-gravity treadmill before the game Sunday, July 26, and he will take batting practice with the team before their series against the Tampa Bay Rays starts Monday, July 27, according to manager Brad Ausmus.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) could be back in the middle of August if everything goes according to plan. As one of the best hitter's in the game, he can still make a pretty big impact for the remaining month and a half of the season as long as he doesn't have any recurrence of calf problems.
