Tigers | Anibal Sanchez throwing without pain

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 14:49:30 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez (shoulder) threw from 90 feet without pain Thursday, Sept. 3, but said he will take a cautious approach during his rehab.

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.

Tigers | Kyle Lobstein returning to start Friday

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 10:23:38 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Kyle Lobstein (shoulder) was activated from the 60-day disabled list Thursday, Sept. 3, and he will make the start against the Cleveland Indians Friday, Sept. 4.

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.

Tigers | Rajai Davis checks into game

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 21:48:20 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Rajai Davis (finger) did not start the game Wednesday, Sept. 2, against the Kansas City Royals, but he was able to check into the game in the ninth inning.

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.

Royals | Jonny Gomes batting sixth vs. Tigers

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 14:56:08 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Jonny Gomes is starting in right field and batting sixth against Detroit Tigers SP Randy Wolf Wednesday, Sept. 2. It is Gomes' first game with the Royals.

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.

Royals | Alex Gordon out against Tigers

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 14:05:08 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 2. OF Paulo Orlando is starting in left field and batting ninth against Detroit Tigers SP Randy Wolf 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.

Royals | Mike Moustakas remains out vs. Tigers

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 13:58:44 -0700

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.

Tigers | Alex Avila starting against Royals

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 13:53:14 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Alex Avila is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura Wednesday, Sept. 2. C James McCann is not in the starting lineup 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.

Tigers | Anthony Gose in leadoff spot Tuesday

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 13:52:55 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Anthony Gose will bat leadoff Tuesday, Sept. 1, against Kansas City Royals SP Johnny Cueto.

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.

Tigers | J.D. Martinez not in the lineup

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 08:15:32 -0700

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.

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.
