Tigers | Nick Castellanos struggling

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 15:27:07 -0700

Detroit Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos is hitting .230 this season with four home runs and 21 RBI, and he has struck out 51 times and only has 13 walks. Manager Brad Ausmus said Castellanos is putting in the work, but sometimes it takes time to translate to the field.

Fantasy Tip: Castellanos ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has been scuffling, but he is attached to a high-powered lineup and carries the pedigree to breakout of the funk. In deep mixed leagues, a speculative grab isn't out of the question. Still, he is a low-end to ill-advised start in all but AL-only formats at this point, and in FantasyScore contests, Castellanos is nothing more than a low-priced flier.

Tigers | James McCann impresses Angels manager

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 00:06:21 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann impressed Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim manager Mike Scioscia, himself a former catcher. "It looks like he's got all the tools and you never know where it leads for a career but, yeah, he's impressive," Scioscia said.

Fantasy Tip: McCann ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is turning a lot of heads with his decision-making and his .286 batting average and two home runs. You may want to see what the Tigers do when Alex Avila is healthy and returns to the active roster, as speculation has McCann making the leap to No. 1.

Tigers | Justin Verlander struggling with command

Sun, 31 May 2015 20:53:21 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander struggled with his command in a rehab start for Class AAA Toledo Sunday, May 31, allowing six hits and two walks in 2 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: When Verlander ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) does finally return, there is no need to rush him back into lineups at FantasyScore.

Tigers | Nick Castellanos not in lineup Sunday

Sun, 31 May 2015 14:07:01 -0700

Detroit Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 31, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. 3B Andrew Romine is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Castellanos ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is taking a bench seat for tonight, so leave him out of your starting lineup. Romine ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 4-for-8 in his last four games, so he is worth activating at this low price.

Tigers | Still no timetable for Victor Martinez

Fri, 29 May 2015 18:37:25 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez (knee) is working out in Florida Friday, May 29, and he will return to the team next week. There is no indication if he will be ready to play upon his return.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) appears to be inching closer to a return, but until he is back in the lineup and swing the bat well, he can remain on the backburner at FantasyScore.

Tigers | Hernan Perez draws into lineup

Fri, 29 May 2015 16:06:26 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Hernan Perez is starting at third base and hitting eighth in the batting order against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago Friday, May 29. 3B Nick Castellanos is serving as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Perez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has only two hits in 30 at-bats in 2015, and he should be avoided for FantasyScore lineups.

Tigers | Anthony Gose to face lefty

Thu, 28 May 2015 16:11:58 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Anthony Gose will start in center field and bat ninth in the order Thursday, May 28, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and left-handed SP C.J. Wilson.

Fantasy Tip: Gose ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) owns a .338 batting average on the season, but he is hitting just .200 against left-handed pitchers. While Wilson isn't the most dominant of opponents, Gose should be avoided on FantasyScore.

Tigers | Jose Iglesias returns to lineup

Thu, 28 May 2015 16:11:07 -0700

Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias (knee) returns to the lineup Thursday, May 28, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: Most of Iglesias' ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) FantasyScore potential comes from the runs scored and stolen base statistics. With Iglesias hitting eighth in the order and potentially still hampered by his knee, FantasyScore owners should give him some time to heat back up before reinvesting.

Tigers | Joakim Soria gets 15th save

Wed, 27 May 2015 17:49:36 -0700

Detroit Tigers RP Joakim Soria picked up his 15th save of the season Wednesday, May 27, against the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Soria allowed one walk and one hit, but he struck out two hitters in one scoreless inning. Soria's strikeout rate and opponent BABIP are both well below their career averages, and season-long owners should try to sell-high, if they have other sources of saves.

Tigers | Alex Wilson pitched three hitless innings

Wed, 27 May 2015 17:43:26 -0700

Detroit Tigers RP Alex Wilson pitched three hitless innings with one strikeout and one walk in his first career start Wednesday, May 27, against the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson is unlikely to make any further starts and he'll possess almost no fantasy value even if he does, if he's going to be limited to three innings at a time.

Tigers | Yoenis Cespedes homers in Oakland

Wed, 27 May 2015 17:42:25 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes hit a three-run home run off Oakland Athletics RP Dan Otero Wednesday, May 27. It was Cespedes' sixth home run of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is hitting .285 on the season with 24 runs and 27 RBI. Cespedes is a regular option on FantasyScore as he hits in the heart of the Tigers' lineup. Cespedes should be regularly deployed against right-handed starters.

Tigers | Anthony Gose in ninth spot

Wed, 27 May 2015 11:37:36 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Anthony Gose is starting in center field and hitting ninth in the batting order against Oakland Athletics SP Scott Kazmir Wednesday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Gose ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is having a fine season (.338/.374/.475) with eight stolen bases, but a move to the bottom of the order against a left-handed pitcher really makes him less appetizing at FantasyScore tonight. Gose is only hitting .231 (3-for-13) against lefties this season. It'd be wise to avoid him.

Tigers | Jose Iglesias remains out

Wed, 27 May 2015 11:27:55 -0700

Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias (knee) remains out of the starting lineup Wednesday, May 27. SS Dixon Machado is starting at shortstop and hitting eighth in the batting order against Oakland Athletics SP Scott Kazmir.

Fantasy Tip: Machado ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a light-hitting infielder that shouldn't be on your radar at FantasyScore.

Tigers | Alex Wilson starting Wednesday

Wed, 27 May 2015 11:26:18 -0700

Detroit Tigers RP Alex Wilson will make the spot start against the Oakland Athletics Wednesday, May 27, in place of SP Alfredo Simon.

Fantasy Tip: Simon was placed on the bereavement list Wednesday. Simon is a relief pitcher, so he won't be available at FantasyScore. You wouldn't want to start him in your lineups anyway. With Detroit playing a bullpen game today, you may want to consider stacking Oakland hitters in your daily lineups.

Tigers | Alex Avila close to baseball activities

Wed, 27 May 2015 11:11:41 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Alex Avila (knee) could be close to starting baseball activities, in the opinion of manager Brad Ausmus.

Fantasy Tip: That doesn't really sound like Avila ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is close to making a return or going on a rehab assignment, for that matter. James McCann ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) continues to do most of the catching the meantime, and he's not a bad sleeper pick at the catcher position, based on matchups. McCann is hitting .281 (27-for-96) with two home runs and 10 RBI.
