Player Outlook
Justyn-Henry Malloy saw time at third base, left field and right field at Triple-A last season, but he is a below-average defender at all three spots and fits best at designated hitter. That's a problem on a roster that has a locked in everyday first baseman (Spencer Torkelson) and also projects to include foundational bat-first players like Kerry Carpenter and Colt Keith. Malloy, who turns 24 in February, slashed .277/.417/.474 with 23 home runs in 135 games at Triple-A. His 102.7 mph 90th percentile exit velocity, 109.9 mph maxEV, and 29.4 Hard% were not high-end marks for a potential designated hitter, but Malloy has had an OBP north of .400 at every stop above Single-A. Similarly to former Tigers DH Victor Martinez, he could potentially provide enough offensive value to DH even if he's not hitting more than 20 homers per season, but that involves Malloy essentially maxing out as a hitter. He doesn't need to be added to the 40-man roster until after the 2024 season for Rule 5 draft protection, so it will be up to him to improve enough defensively to force the issue this season.

  • Tigers' Justyn-Henry Malloy: Gets first day off since call-up

    Malloy is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nationals. Malloy had started at designated hitter or in left field in each of the Tigers' seven games since his June 3 call-up, going 3-for-19 with a home run and a 5:8 BB:K. Though his .636 OPS thus far in his MLB career isn't anything special, the Tigers likely aren't ready to pull the plug on Malloy as an everyday player just yet. With Malloy on the bench Wednesday, the Tigers will give Riley Greene a day off in the outfield and have him serve as the team's DH.

  • Tigers' Justyn-Henry Malloy: Records first MLB home run

    Malloy went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 9-1 loss to the Rangers. While it was an ugly night for the Tigers, it was a great night for Malloy. The rookie delivered his first MLB hit in the top of the sixth inning, and it also happened to be his first MLB home run. Malloy added a single a few innings later for good measure. The 24-year-old is a promising prospect with some power upside, and he figures to see regular playing time at least for the foreseeable future, giving him an opportunity to show what he can do.

  • Tigers' Justyn-Henry Malloy: Added to roster, in lineup Monday

    The Tigers selected Malloy's contract from Triple-A Toledo on Monday. He'll start at designated hitter and will bat sixth Monday against the Rangers in his MLB debut. The 24-year-old has slashed .253/.410/.473 with six home runs and three stolen bases over 195 plate appearances this season with Toledo. Malloy has made a full-time move to the outfield in 2024 after previously spending some time at the infield corners. The right-handed batter should receive at least semi-regular starts between the corner outfield and DH.

The 24-year-old will be set to make his major-league debut after producing a .253 average with six home runs, 27 RBI, 23 runs scored and three stolen bases over 45 games with Toledo this season.

  • Tigers' Justyn-Henry Malloy: Back in action Sunday

    Malloy (undisclosed) will start at designated hitter and bat third for Triple-A Toledo in Sunday's game against St. Paul. Malloy is back in action for Toledo for the first time since May 3 after missing more than a week with an undisclosed injury. The 24-year-old outfielder has maintained a .279/.424/.462 slash line over 132 plate appearances on the season.

  • Tigers' Justyn-Henry Malloy: Still banged up

    Malloy hasn't played at Triple-A Toledo since Friday due to an undisclosed injury, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reported Tuesday Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said Malloy is "banged up a little bit" but didn't disclose any specifics regarding the injury. The injury could have kept Malloy from a chance at the big-league roster, considering Ryan Vilade was called up by the Tigers on Tuesday to replace Parker Meadows, who will join Malloy down at Triple-A.

  • Tigers' Justyn-Henry Malloy: Reassigned to minor-league camp

    The Tigers reassigned Malloy to minor-league camp Thursday. Malloy will head to Triple-A Toledo for now as he continues a full-time move to the outfield. He has a shot to debut at some point in 2024.

  • Tigers' Justyn-Henry Malloy: Heating up again

    Malloy is hitting .329 with a .424 OBP, five home runs, two steals and a 20:14 K:BB over his last 20 games for Triple-A Toledo. He had a bit of a slump from the middle of May until the middle of June, but Malloy has now had multiple red-hot stretches as well. Malloy started the year playing third base for the Mud Hens, but he has been playing the outfield corners over the past few weeks, clearing a path for Colt Keith at third base.

  • Tigers' Justyn-Henry Malloy: On fire at Triple-A

    Malloy is hitting .391 with a .538 OBP and three home runs in 20 games for Triple-A Toledo. A bat-first masher, Malloy has split time this year between third base and designated hitter. He has more walks (20) than strikeouts (17) and while his .490 BABIP is a clear sign he is playing over his head, Malloy is undisputedly in complete control at the dish right now. The 23-year-old slugger ranks third in the International League with a 198 wRC+. Nick Maton (-0.2 fWAR) and Tyler Nevin (-0.3 fWAR) lead the Tigers in playing time at third base, so a big-league debut could come sooner than later for Malloy.
