Detroit Tigers news, rumors and injuries
Sat, 23 May 2015 15:41:45 -0700
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.
Sat, 23 May 2015 15:02:17 -0700
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.

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.

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.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has picked up a hit in four of his last five games and also has recorded a stolen base in each of his last two games. Owners on FantasyScore could consider using Davis as a cheaper option for their lineups.

Detroit Tigers RP Joakim Soria blew his first save of the season against the Houston Astros Thursday, May 21. He allowed one hit and an earned run while throwing 13 pitches. His ERA now stands at 1.42 on the year.
Fantasy Tip: Soria still remains one of the most valuable closers in the game despite his first blown save of the year. He's not striking out a ton, but he has a firm grasp on the ninth-inning job with Joe Nathan done for the year.

Detroit Tigers SP David Price gave up three runs (two earned) and struck out 12 in 6 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Houston Astros Thursday, May 21. He allowed five hits in the outing and walked just one hitter while throwing 69 of his 100 pitches for strikes.
Fantasy Tip: Price ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) was certainly worth his cost at FantasyScore against the Astros, who came into the game ranked second in the league in strikeouts. The veteran left-hander has had some shaky outings this year, but he should be fine in the long run, and this start today confirms that.

Fantasy Tip: Castro ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has struggled mightily this season, but he has hit three home runs over his past seven games, so maybe an uptick in production is coming. Make sure to avoid him in all fantasy formats Thursday. Conger ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) doesn't warrant attention in any fantasy formats, as he is just 5-for-32 this season.
Thu, 21 May 2015 07:12:05 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is an upside source of cap relief for FantasyScore players. His speed helps him stretch out extra-base hits and swipe bases. He has performed well when given the opportunity this season, too, as he sports a .275 average with 18 runs, eight extra-base hits and nine stolen bases over 80 at-bats.
Thu, 21 May 2015 07:06:53 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Iglesias ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. It is likely a routine day off on getaway day, as Igelsias missed time earlier in the month with a groin injury. Romine ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation flier for FantasyScore contests Thursday.
Wed, 20 May 2015 19:29:57 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Castellanos ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has picked up at least one hit in seven of his last nine games and has picked up six RBI in that span. Castellanos could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider, but owners should be able to find a better option most nights.
Wed, 20 May 2015 11:19:11 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Collins will be a bottom-of-the-barrel option at FantasyScore for the time being, and he could see occasional starts in the outfield and DH with Victor Martinez (knee) on the DL.
Tue, 19 May 2015 20:31:23 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Sanchez ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) has struggled at times this season and currently has a 5.60 ERA. Sanchez will face the Houston Astros in his next start and could be a risky option for owners on FantasyScore.
Tue, 19 May 2015 13:54:54 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Verlander ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) could move to a simulated game if everything goes well Friday, and he'll likely need a rehab start or two before coming off the DL. The Tigers aren't rushing him back, and you shouldn't feel compelled to rush him into your FantasyScore lineups when he's back in the bigs, either.
Tue, 19 May 2015 13:33:50 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has no timetable for a return, and it's likely he'll need more than the allotted 15 days on the DL. You should be hesitant in using him at FantasyScore when he returns until we see signs that his swing and health are back to 100%.
