Tigers | Andrew Romine in at short

Tue, 26 May 2015 16:22:05 -0700

Detroit Tigers SS Andrew Romine will start at shortstop and bat eighth in the order Tuesday, May 26, against the Oakland Athletics. SS Jose Iglesias is out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Romine ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) went 2-for-4 Saturday, May 24, and he scored a run for the second time in three games. With Romine's price at the minimum, and the top of the batting order batting behind him, Romine can be considered in GPP contests.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler resting Tuesday

Tue, 26 May 2015 16:10:36 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler will rest Tuesday, May 26, against the Oakland Athletics. 2B Hernan Perez will start at second in his place and bat ninth in the order. OF Rajai Davis will serve as the designated hitter and move into the two-spot in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Perez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has just two hits in 27 plate appearances this year, and he shouldn't garner any consideration on FantasyScore. Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has 11 stolen bases on the season, and he can be considered for play in GPP tournaments despite his low .262 average against right-handed pitchers.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera owns A's

Tue, 26 May 2015 10:14:38 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera is batting .337 with 17 home runs and 54 RBI in 55 career games against the Oakland Athletics, who he faces Tuesday, May 26. He leads all active players with a .438 on-base percentage and a .663 slugging percentage against Oakland.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) should consistently be a daily FantasyScore option for your lineups.

Tigers | Nick Castellanos hitting well

Tue, 26 May 2015 10:09:05 -0700

Detroit Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos has hit safely in 15 of his last 19 games after riding a nine-game hitting streak in early April.

Fantasy Tip: Castellanos ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is still only hitting .247 (22-for-89) in the month of May with two home runs and 12 RBI. Facing a right-handed pitcher tonight, Castellanos is a mediocre FantasyScore option. He's hitting .227 (32-for-141 against righties in 2015.

Tigers | Jose Iglesias remains out

Mon, 25 May 2015 11:15:03 -0700

Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias (knee) is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 25. SS Dixon Machado will take his place in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Iglesias ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is considered day-to-day at this point, so he could return soon. Machado will receive his first start of the season but should not be an option for fantasy owners at this point.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera not playing

Mon, 25 May 2015 10:32:44 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera (ankle) is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 25. INF Hernan Perez will start at first base. Manager Brad Ausmus said Cabrera has been dealing with a minor ankle injury but should be in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) could miss a day or two, but it does not appear like he is dealing with a serious injury. Perez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has recorded only two hits in 24 at-bats this season and should be avoided on FantasyScore.

Tigers | Anibal Sanchez gives up 11th homer

Sun, 24 May 2015 15:26:37 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez has given up 11 home runs through the first two months of this season. Sanchez gave up 13 in the previous two seasons combined.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) has not been himself this season, as most of his owners have realized. The club says there is no injury, but clearly something isn't right. Until he figures out what is up, you may want to leave Sanchez on your bench.

Tigers | Kyle Lobstein placed on DL

Sun, 24 May 2015 11:17:46 -0700

The Detroit Tigers have placed SP Kyle Lobstein (shoulder) on the 15-day disabled list because of left shoulder soreness. He is scheduled to undergo an MRI exam Sunday, May 24. In a corresponding move, INF Dixon Machado was promoted from Class AAA Toledo. SP Buck Farmer will be recalled from Toledo to start in Lobstein's place against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Thursday, April 28.

Fantasy Tip: Farmer struggled during a brief stint in the majors last season but he has gotten off to a strong start at Toledo this year, posting a 5-1 record with a 2.98 ERA. His high strikeout totals could make him intriguing to owners in AL-only leagues.

Tigers | Bryan Holaday starting

Sun, 24 May 2015 07:28:40 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Bryan Holaday is starting behind the plate Sunday, May 24, against the Houston Astros. Holaday will bat eighth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Holaday ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is going for just above the minimum price on FantasyScore and he's an option for owners wanting to punt the catcher position.

Tigers | Jose Iglesias has off day

Sun, 24 May 2015 07:24:12 -0700

Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias isn't in the starting lineup Sunday, May 24, against the Houston Astros. SS Andrew Romine will start at shortstop and bat ninth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Romine ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is benefiting from a .375 BABIP and he is hitting for a .310 batting average through 32 plate appearances. Romine has also stolen four bases already this season and he's a worthy flier on FantasyScore while going for the minimum price.

Tigers | Rajai Davis starting in right field

Sun, 24 May 2015 07:23:18 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Rajai Davis will start in right field and bat seventh in the order Sunday, May 24, against the Houston Astros.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has struggled against right-handed pitchers this season, hitting just .263 compared to .303 against left-handers. Astros RHP Roberto Hernandez certainly isn't someone to be scared of, but FantasyScore owners should temper expectations of Davis.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera hit streak at 11 games

Sat, 23 May 2015 15:41:45 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera extended his hitting streak to 11 games Saturday, May 23, with a single against the Houston Astros.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) is a no-brainer to put in your lineup as he remains red hot at this point.

Tigers | Jose Iglesias injured

Sat, 23 May 2015 15:02:17 -0700

Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias (knee) left the game Saturday, May 23, against the Houston Astros with a left knee contusion.

Fantasy Tip: Iglesias ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has had numerous small injuries affecting him in the past few weeks, but there hasn't been anything too serious. Watch and see what happens before you put him back in your lineup.

Tigers | Tyler Collins in lineup Saturday

Sat, 23 May 2015 11:54:10 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Tyler Collins will serve as the designated hitter and bat seventh against the Houston Astros Saturday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Collins is expected to see increased playing time over the next few weeks as the designated hitter in the absence of Victor Martinez (knee). It is the third time in the last four games he has started at the position.

Tigers | Victor Martinez starting rehab

Fri, 22 May 2015 13:32:04 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez (knee) will begin his rehab in Florida Friday, May 22, according to manager Brad Ausmus.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) doesn't have a timeline for his return, and it could be a while longer than the normal 15-day DL stint. Rajai Davis ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) should benefit the most with more playing time in the DH spot, and he's been hot of late, making him a value play mainly for his speed at FantasyScore.
