Blue Jays | Russell Martin sitting against Tigers

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 12:38:13 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 28. C Josh Thole is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Detroit Tigers SP Matt Boyd Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Russell ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is playing through a nagging hamstring injury, and he has stopped catching R.A. Dickey of late. Seasonal owners wouldn't be out of the question to consider an upgrade, as Martin is batting .111 with just three runs, three RBI and no extra-base hits in August. Thole ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) has a .216/.292/.266 slash line through 122 games with the Blue Jays over the past three seasons, and he is nothing but a desperation flier at FantasyScore Friday.

Blue Jays | Chris Colabello in vs. Tigers

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 12:28:57 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Chris Colabello is starting at first base and batting fifth against Detroit Tigers SP Matt Boyd Friday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Colabello ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) has been drawing into the lineup against lefties with Justin Smoak ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) relegating to the bench. While Colabello stands as a solid FantayScore option Friday, he isn't cheap, so he carries a little more risk than your typical platoon player. He owns a .324/.377/.563 slash line against lefties this season.

Tigers | Shane Greene undergoes surgery

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 17:57:00 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Shane Greene (shoulder) underwent season-ending surgery Thursday, Aug. 27, in Dallas, to repair a weakened blood vessel in his right shoulder which caused numbness in his pitching hand by pressing against a nerve.

Fantasy Tip: Greene is expected to be able to do his normal offseason conditioning program and should be ready for spring training. You can drop him in all fantasy formats.

Tigers | Randy Wolf suffers loss Thursday

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 17:31:47 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Randy Wolf (0-2) allowed one run on five hits over seven innings in a loss to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Thursday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Wolf ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has pitched well enough to win in both of his starts but has no victories to show for it. He will make his next start against the Kansas City Royals Wednesday, Sept. 2.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera back in a groove

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 21:26:29 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run Wednesday, Aug. 26, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) kills left-handed pitching, and he has a monster average and power numbers at home in cavernous Comerica Park. He has hit safely in 11 straight games going 17-for-46 (.370) with two homers, 10 RBIs and 12 runs scored.

Tigers | J.D. Martinez smacks 34th homer

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 21:25:27 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF J.D. Martinez went 2-for-4 with a double and a two-run homer Wednesday, Aug. 26, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. His 34 homers are the most by a Tigers player, other than 1B Miguel Cabrera, since the team moved to Comerica Park in 2000.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) has emerged as a quality FantasyScore option this season due to his power potential. He has three straight multi-hit games, posting at least one double in each of the outings while hitting two homers with six RBIs.

Tigers | Vintage Justin Verlander in victory

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 21:24:55 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander lost a bid for his third no-hitter in the ninth inning Wednesday, Aug. 26, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. He settled for a one-hit shutout.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander's ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) outing was, by far, his best of the season. He faced just one batter over the minimum. It was his seventh shutout, and first in over three years. FantasyScore players should be encouraged by Verlander's performance, especially against a quality offense, but give him at least one more start to prove he has turned it around before trusting him again.

Tigers | Nick Castellanos reaches the seats

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 21:24:25 -0700

Detroit Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Wednesday, Aug. 26, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: Castellanos ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) strikes again, at least against left-handed pitching. He has four homers and 12 RBIs over his past nine games. He entered the game hitting .351 (33-for-94) with three doubles, two triples, four homers and 19 RBIs with a .963 OPS against southpaws, so keep that in mind when setting FantasyScore lineups in future games.

Tigers | Anibal Sanchez expected back this year

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 16:16:19 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez (shoulder) is expected to return to the starting rotation at some point in September.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) has had a disappointing season and projects to take the hill for just a couple more starts, at best. He is worth holding in the majority of leagues, but if needed, you can feel free to cut the currently dead weight to stay competitive.

Tigers | Jose Iglesias batting second

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 13:34:13 -0700

Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias is hitting second against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver Tuesday, Aug. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Iglesias ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has cooled down a bit in August, although he's still hitting over .300 on the season. Weaver has been surprisingly good since returning from the DL, too, and Iglesias doesn't have much offensive upside. The second hole is better for his daily value, but don't expect too much from Iglesias on FantasyScore tonight.

Tigers | Ian Kinsler sitting Tuesday

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 13:32:55 -0700

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25. SS Andrew Romine is starting at second base and hitting ninth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver.

Fantasy Tip: Don't automatically assume Romine ($2,300, 4.6% of cap), a light-hitting backup infielder, will suddenly find success against the soft-tossing Weaver. Weaver has actually been very solid since his return from a hip injury. Romine remains a low-end desperation deep sleeper pick.

Tigers | Michael Fulmer a starting option?

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 12:13:20 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Michael Fulmer may be a target for a Sept. 1 callup, according to sources inside the team. Fulmer has a 1.59 ERA and 0.88 WHIP with 21 strikeouts in 22 2/3 innings at Class AA Erie.

Fantasy Tip: Fulmer was a vital cog of the trade that sent OF Yoenis Cespedes to the New York Mets, and manager Brad Ausmus said there was mention of Fulmer in starting talks but that he was not a viable option. Keep an eye on the callup date, because Fulmer could be a sleeper if he earns a start.

Tigers | Tyler Collins on track for LF job

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 12:08:17 -0700

Detroit Free Press OF Tyler Collins is being given a chance to win the starting left field job outright now that OF Yoenis Cespedes has been traded. Entering this week, Collins was hitting .280 in 14 games since the Cespedes trade. Collins has hit safely in nine of 12 starts this month.

Fantasy Tip: Collins ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) can be a decent low-cost source of hits and batting average if he works through some of the shortcomings in his game. He has the backing of manager Brad Ausmus and seems to be a regular since Cespedes was dealt at the deadline.

Tigers | Alex Avila starting behind the plate

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 12:25:23 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Alex Avila is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against Cincinnati Reds SP Keyvius Sampson Monday, Aug. 24. C James McCann is not in the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Avila ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) owns a .160/.299/.222 slash line over 97 plate appearances since he returned from the disabled list Friday, July 3. There is no reason to target him at FantasyScore, but if the salary fits in the endgame of lineup assembly, he has some upside hitting in a strong lineup. McCann ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has proven to be the better catcher for Detroit this season, and he is worth a look in two-catcher, AL-only and cavernous mixed formats.

Tigers | Buck Farmer starting against Cincy

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 11:37:58 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Buck Farmer is making the start against the Cincinnati Reds Monday, Aug. 24.

Fantasy Tip: With injuries to Anibal Sanchez and Daniel Norris, the Tigers were forced to go back to Farmer ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) against the Reds. He has an ugly 8.39 ERA and 1.87 WHIP in eight outings (three starts) for Detroit this year. Avoid him everywhere. Cincinnati hitters are attractive at FantasyScore today.
