Player Outlook
Ryan Kreidler dealt with injuries in 2023 and could never really get going for the Tigers. He started the year on the MLB roster but was optioned to Triple-A Toledo in April. He then went on the injured list due to knee soreness and ultimately missed extended time following core-muscle surgery. When he finally got healthy later in the summer, Kreidler returned to action for Toledo, where he ended up playing 49 games. The utility player only appeared in 11 games for Detroit, recording two hits in 18 at-bats. Kreidler saw a bit more MLB run in 2022, playing in 26 games with the Tigers, but he had similar struggles at the plate, slashing just .178/.244/.233 in those contests. Unless the 26-year-old starts to show more offensive upside, he likely will remain off the fantasy radar. Heading into 2024, Kreidler will compete with the likes of Nick Maton, Andy Ibanez and others for a utility role in Detroit. Given his ineffective and injury-marred 2023 campaign, Kreidler will probably once again spend a good chunk of time in the minors this season.

  • Tigers' Ryan Kreidler: Returns to Triple-A

    The Tigers optioned Kreidler to Triple-A Toledo on Monday. Javier Baez (back) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list, so Kreidler will head back to Triple-A since his playing time was about to dry up. Kreidler should receive everyday reps at a variety of positions at Toledo. He hit .125 with one home run and two stolen bases over 40 at-bats with the Tigers following his June 11 promotion.

  • Tigers' Ryan Kreidler: Hitting bench Sunday

    Kreidler is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds. Kreidler had started at shortstop in both of the past two games and four of the previous six games overall, but he'll give way to Zach McKinstry in the series finale. Since getting called up from Triple-A Toledo on June 11, Kreidler has produced a weak .405 OPS over 18 games, so he won't have much of a case for seeing regular playing time once Javier Baez (spine) likely returns from the injured list during the upcoming week.

  • Tigers' Ryan Kreidler: Hits first 2024 home run

    Kreidler went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Twins. It was a rare display of power for Kreidler, who hit his first home run since the 2022 season. The utility man has been seeing more time at shortstop recently with Javier Baez (back) on the injured list, though Zach McKinstry has the slight edge in playing time at the moment. Neither player is a great offensive option, and fantasy managers can mostly look elsewhere, particularly with Baez beginning a rehab assignment Tuesday and likely back soon.

  • Tigers' Ryan Kreidler: Swipes two bases Tuesday

    Kreidler went 2-for-2 with a walk, a run and two stolen bases in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Phillies. Kreidler stole the first two bases of his MLB career in the seventh inning. The 26-year-old has mostly been a bench player in the majors, so while Tuesday's effort was promising, it looks to be an outlier. Zach McKinstry should get most of the playing time at shortstop in the near future with Javier Baez (back) still on the injured list, pushing Kreidler to a reserve role most days.

  • Tigers' Ryan Kreidler: Back in big leagues

    The Tigers recalled Kreidler from Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports. Kreidler has missed a large chunk of the minor-league season with a fractured finger, but he had recently rejoined the roster at Toledo, where he's gone 4-for-25 at the plate in nine games. He's starting at shortstop Tuesday versus the Nationals and is expected to form the short side of a platoon at the position while Javier Baez (back) is out, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

  • Tigers' Ryan Kreidler: Taken off IL

    Kreidler (finger) was activated off the 7-day injured list Monday and will rejoin Triple-A Toledo, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Kreidler was placed on the injured list April 7 due to a fractured right index finger. He began his rehab assignment with Single-A Lakeland on May 22, going 2-for-20 with 11 strikeouts over seven games.

  • Tigers' Ryan Kreidler: Rehabbing at Single-A

    Kreidler (finger) began a rehab assignment with Single-A Lakeland on Wednesday and has gone 0-for-6 with one walk and four strikeouts through his first two games. Kreidler has been on Triple-A Toledo's 7-day injured list since early April while recovering from surgery to repair a fractured right index finger. Once he regains his timing at the plate during the rehab assignment, Kreidler should settle back into an everyday role in the Toledo infield.

  • Tigers' Ryan Kreidler: Recovering from finger surgery

    The Tigers announced that Kreidler underwent surgery April 11 to address a fractured right index finger, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports. Kreidler has been taking part in daily rehab since getting surgery but is without a clear timeline to return to action for Triple-A Toledo. The 26-year-old infielder possesses a spot on the Tigers' 40-man roster but will remain on Toledo's injured list for the time being.

  • Tigers' Ryan Kreidler: Diagnosed with fractured finger

    Kreidler has been diagnosed with a fractured right index finger, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. Kreidler had already been placed on the 7-day injured list at Triple-A Toledo and subsequent testing has revealed the fracture. He's still being evaluated, so it's not clear how long he might be out, but certainly he won't be an option for the Tigers for quite a while.

  • Tigers' Ryan Kreidler: Moves to injured list

    Kreidler (hand) was placed on the 7-day injured list at Triple-A Toledo on Sunday, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports. Kreidler was unavailable the past few days due to the injury and will now be sidelined for at least the next week. He was sent for medical testing Sunday, the results of which remain unclear.

  • Tigers' Ryan Kreidler: Tending to hand injury

    Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said Kreidler hasn't been available for Triple-A Toledo since Thursday after being hit in the hand by a pitch, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports. Hinch noted that Kreidler is undergo further testing as the Tigers look to learn more about the extent of the injury. The 26-year-old infielder went hitless in his first 10 at-bats of the season with Toledo before getting hit in the hand.

  • Tigers' Ryan Kreidler: Sent to Toledo

    The Tigers optioned Kreidler to Triple-A Toledo on Thursday. Kreidler was in the race for the final bench spot on Detroit's Opening Day roster and slashed .355/.500/.548 during Grapefruit League play, but he will ultimately miss the cut. Kreidler posted an .809 OPS across 209 Triple-A plate appearances last season, and a similar start in 2024 could earn him a promotion to the big leagues relatively quickly.

  • Tigers' Ryan Kreidler: Returns to action at Triple-A

    Kreidler (core) has gone 3-for-13 with a double and a stolen base in three games for Triple-A Toledo since being reinstated from the 7-day injured list Thursday. Kreidler rejoined the Toledo lineup Thursday for his first appearance with the affiliate since April 26 after a prolonged absence due to knee soreness and then core-muscle surgery. The 25-year-old infielder remains on the Tigers' 40-man roster and could be in the mix for a late-season call-up if he can stay healthy at Triple-A and produce well at the plate.

  • Tigers' Ryan Kreidler: Recovering from core-muscle surgery

    The Tigers announced Wednesday that Kreidler (knee) recently underwent core-muscle surgery, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports. Kreidler was placed on Triple-A Toledo's 7-day injured list April 28 due to knee soreness, but he was cleared to begin a rehab assignment with High-A West Michigan just under a month later. He played in five games in the Midwest League before being pulled off the assignment two weeks ago, presumably on account of the core-muscle injury. Kreidler is in the midst of daily treatment and is taking part in physical therapy following the recent procedure, but he's without a clear timeline to resume playing in games.

  • Tigers' Ryan Kreidler: Starting rehab assignment

    Kreidler (knee) is beginning a rehab assignment with High-A West Michigan on Friday, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports. Kreidler has been on the injured list at Triple-A Toledo all month because of a sore knee. He'll rejoin Toledo once he's deemed ready but could push to rejoin the major-league club later this season.

  • Tigers' Ryan Kreidler: Lands on Triple-A injured list

    Triple-A Toledo placed Kreidler on its 7-day injured list Friday due to knee soreness, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Kreidler likely would have been in consideration for a call-up to the big leagues after Kerry Carpenter (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday, but Kreidler's own knee issue explains why the Tigers opted to promote Zack Short from Triple-A to fill the vacancy on the 26-man active roster. Provided Kreider's knee injury isn't anything more than soreness, he should be ready to return to action with Toledo within the next two weeks. After being optioned to Triple-A on April 15, Kreidler had slashed .300/.382/.600 across 34 plate appearances in his first eight games with Toledo.

  • Tigers' Ryan Kreidler: Optioned to Triple-A

    Kreidler was optioned Saturday to Triple-A Toledo. Kreidler was just 2-for-18 (.111) with two singles and seven strikeouts through 11 games this season with Detroit.

  • Tigers' Ryan Kreidler: Seems likely to make team

    With the Tigers optioning Akil Baddoo and Zack Short to Triple-A Toledo on Monday, Kreidler has a clearer path to an Opening Day roster spot. Kreidler is versatile enough to play across the infield and in the outfield, and that appeared to give him the edge over Baddoo and Short. Even if he sticks on the roster into the regular season, Kreidler is unlikely to have a huge fantasy impact after recording a .477 OPS across 26 games with the Tigers last year.

  • Tigers' Ryan Kreidler: Productive Sunday

    Kreidler went 2-for-3 with a double, two runs scored and two RBI in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Twins. Batting second, Kreidler made his presence felt. The infielder is battling for a reserve role this spring, though he'd likely make the team based on his defensive versatility, as he batted just .178 in 26 games for the Tigers in 2022. However, Kreidler looked better in the box at the Triple-A level the last two seasons, so perhaps he can improve his offensive production in the majors. Even if that happens, Kreidler will remain off the fantasy radar unless he's able to secure regular playing time.

  • Tigers' Ryan Kreidler: Could earn reserve role

    Kreidler may make the Tigers' Opening Day roster in a reserve role, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports. The Tigers have some roster uncertainty, particularly with Nick Maton and Matt Vierling coming over in the trade for reliever Gregory Soto. Kreidler played in 26 games for Detroit last year and batted just .178, though his defensive versatility could help him carve out a utility role off the bench. The righty Kreidler could also settle into a platoon role at second or third, possibly with the left-handed-hitting Maton.
