Detroit Tigers Starting Lineup 12/10/18 Tigers Lineup

64-98, 3rd in AL Central

green-check Confirmed Conf

DET 0 @ MIL 11

Final

Updated:

The Tigers are another rebuilding A.L. Central team, and they lost Miguel Cabrera for the season. While he is up in age, it is still hard to lose a player of his caliber. Detroit is also riding out the Victor Martinez years, and using him as a DH is pretty unwise, but there is not anyone to take his place just yet. When looking at catcher, Detroit have James McCann who mashes lefties. John Hicks will occasionally find himself behind the dish, but has taken over at first base with Cabrera on the DL. Niko Goodrum and Jeimer Candelario are two names that you might not be familiar with, but are actually the better fantasy options from this Detroit team.

Analysis

Nick Castellanos is the name you likely know, and is the big bat in the middle of the lineup. This team doesn’t have a bad front four when Leonys Martin is healthy, but he has been on the DL twice this season. Mikie Mahtook is the bat that fills in, but against right-handers he has a tough time. Jacoby Jones will also work his way into the lineup, but neither have really been fantasy relevant this season. After these names, Jose Iglesias is more known for his defense than offense. The Tigers can beat up on bad pitchers, but will struggle against average and above average pitching. With the number of names on the DL, Detroit finds it hard to have some consistent depth. Jim Adduci has been recently brought up, and will play the utility role when players need off-days. Victor Reyes is another outfield option for Detroit, but he hardly finds himself in the lineup. The Tigers have brought themselves into a tough situation with the Cabrera deal, making it harder for them to build outside of their farm system.
