Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias (hand) will not play Friday, Sept. 4, after suffering a hand injury during the game against the Kansas City Royals on Sept. 3. He is expected to miss at least a few days.
Fantasy Tip: Immediately take Iglesias ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) out of your lineup. As for Andrew Romine ($2,300, 4.6% of cap), his likely replacement, he does not carry enough fantasy value to put him on your roster.

Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias (hand) was removed from the game against the Kansas City Royals in the top of the third inning, after getting hit on his right hand by a pitched ball while attempting to bunt.
Fantasy Tip: If Iglesias ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is forced to miss a considerable amount of time, Andrew Romine ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) will see regular playing time at shortstop. However, he is not much more than a desperation source of FantasyScore cap relief.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is expected to return to make at least one start before the end of the season, but his fantasy impact could be minimal. He last pitched Tuesday, Aug. 18, and might only make a single start with the Tigers in late September. So really, you're looking at a desperation stash at this point. Temper your expectations and don't be worried about cutting bait.

Fantasy Tip: Lobstein ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) had a 4.34 ERA and 1.45 WHIP in eight starts (47 2/3 innings) for the Tigers earlier this year. He should definitely be avoided in daily games in his first start since May 23, and he could have his innings monitored down the stretch.

Fantasy Tip: Wait until Davis ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) can make it through a full game without any lingering effects of his injury before trusting him in FantasyScore again.
Wed, 02 Sep 2015 14:56:08 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) will likely platoon with Jarrod Dyson ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) in right field with Alex Rios (illness) on the shelf with chickenpox. Gomes has fared well against southpaws this season with a .453 slugging percentage. Still, he is more of a flier than a target at FantasyScore Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Gordon ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) Wednesday, and don't be surprised if he receives a few extra days of rest while working his way back from his groin injury. Orlando ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) checks out as a low-priced flier at FantasyScore Wednesday.

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 2. 3B Cheslor Cuthbert is starting at third base and batting eighth against Detroit Tigers SP Randy Wolf Wednesday.
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Moustakas ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. He is currently heating up with a .333/.387/.684 slash line, four home runs and 16 RBI over his past 15 games and is expected to return soon. Cuthbert is nothing more than a dice roll for daily contests Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Avila ($3,300,6.6% of cap) is having a disappointing season with a .178 batting average, and he is nothing more than a desperation option in AL-only, cavernous mixed and two-catcher formats. FantasyScore players can fade him without worry. McCann ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is currently struggling, too, as he has .194/.237/.292 slash line over his past 19 games.
Tue, 01 Sep 2015 13:52:55 -0700
Fantasy Tip: This is the second time in three days Gose ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is in the leadoff spot. The Tigers usually put him here for speed purposes. Gose does hit .273 against Cueto, however, so this is worth watching on FantasyScore.

Detroit Tigers OF J.D. Martinez is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison Saturday, Aug. 29. OF Rajai Davis will start in left field and is batting ninth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup for the next game. Davis ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is hitting only .157 this month and is not the best option for owners on FantasyScore.
Fri, 28 Aug 2015 12:38:13 -0700
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.
Fri, 28 Aug 2015 12:28:57 -0700
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.

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