  • Tigers' Parker Meadows: Sitting down for Game 2

    Meadows isn't in the Tigers' lineup for the second game of Saturday's twin bill against Minnesota.

    Meadows went 0-for-2 during the Tigers' first game on Saturday before being pinch hit for in the seventh inning. Wenceel Perez will replace Meadows in center field for the nightcap and bat seventh.

  • Tigers' Carson Kelly: Sitting out nightcap

    Kelly isn't in the Tigers' lineup for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Twins.

    After going 0-for-4 with a walk and a run scored during Game 1, Kelly will get a breather in the nightcap. Jake Rogers will take his place behind the plate and bat ninth.

  • Tigers' Kerry Carpenter: Hits second home run

    Carpenter went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Twins.

    Carpenter got the scoring started for Detroit, hitting his second home run of the season in the first inning against Minnesota starter Joe Ryan with a runner on. Carpenter continues to crush righties to the tune of a .911 OPS this year, while he's only had two hitless at-bats against southpaws. Expect him to start most days moving forward except when a lefty is on the mound for the opponent.

  • Tigers' Alex Lange: Control issues persist in loss

    Lange (0-1) allowed five unearned runs to take the loss in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Twins. He walked two and retired two batters via strikeout.

    Lange didn't allow any hits or earned runs, but it still wasn't a great performance. Coming on in the top of the 12th inning with a runner on second, the righty walked the first hitter he faced. Later in the frame, Lange walked in a run with the bases loaded. The big blow came a few batters later, when a Zach McKinstry fielding error with the bases loaded led to three more runs. While Lange sits with a solid 2.08 ERA, free passes continue to be a big problem, as he now has seven of them this year in just 4.1 innings. Lange will need to cut down on the walks if he wants to earn trust in high-leverage spots. He also tossed a whopping 36 pitches in the uneven appearance, so he likely won't be available for the nightcap.

  • Tigers' Kenta Maeda: Allows one earned run

    Maeda didn't factor in the decision during Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Twins after he gave up two runs (one earned) on five hits and no walks over six innings. He struck out five.

    Maeda surrendered four homers in his first two outings, but he kept the ball in the yard Saturday and delivered his first quality start of the campaign. The right-hander wasn't exactly dominant as he generated just six swinging strikeouts on 87 pitches, but he was able to hold Minnesota at bay despite giving up three doubles. Through three starts Maeda now has a 6.00 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 10:5: K:BB across 14 innings.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Reaches, scores twice in win

    Greene went 1-for-3 with a walk, a double, an RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 8-2 win over the Twins.

    Greene moved up to the leadoff spot for the first time this season and responded with a strong game. Perhaps the lineup shuffle will jump start the 23-year-old, as he's still batting just .214. However, Greene does have a solid .829 OPS, and if he continues to make consistent contact, huge numbers could be right around the corner, particularly as Detroit's table-setter.

  • Tigers' Javier Baez: Sitting for Game 1

    Baez isn't in the Tigers' lineup for the first game of Saturday's twin bill versus Minnesota.

    After striking out three times and failing to record a hit during Friday's contest, Baez will take a seat to kick off Saturday's activities. Zach McKinstry will get the nod instead at shortstop and bat seventh.

  • Tigers' Gio Urshela: Sitting to begin twin bill

    Urshela isn't in the Tigers' lineup for the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Twins.

    Urshela will get a breather to begin Saturday after going 0-for-3 with a walk and an RBI during Friday's win. His absence will allow Matt Vierling to pick up a start at third base while batting sixth.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Continues to pitch well

    Faedo logged two scoreless innings of relief in Friday's 8-2 win over the Twins. He walked one and struck out two.

    Faedo now has a strong 2.16 ERA across five appearances (8.1 innings). The righty has covered two full innings in three of his five outings, which has given the Tigers a nice boost out of the bullpen. Faedo may not have a ton of fantasy value in his current long-relief role, though he could move up the bullpen pecking order if he continues to pitch well.

  • Tigers' Spencer Torkelson: Drives in two Friday

    Torkelson went 2-for-4 with a walk, a run scored and two RBI in Friday's 8-2 win over the Twins.

    Torkelson is now riding a modest three-game hitting streak, and during that time he's posted a .955 OPS and driven in three. The power still hasn't shown up for the 24-year-old, as he has no home runs through 12 contests after going deep 31 times last season. However, Torkelson has shown in the past that he can launch long balls in bunches, so fantasy managers should remain patient.

  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Homers in victory

    Canha went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI, two runs scored and a walk during Friday's 8-2 victory over the Twins.

    The 35-year-old outfielder put the Tigers in front early with a solo home run in the bottom of the first inning. He later walked and came around to score on a Matt Vierling single during the fifth frame before driving in Jake Rogers on an RBI single of his own in the sixth. Canha is now slashing .243/.404/.541 with three homers and six RBI across his first 47 plate appearances with the Tigers.

  • Tigers' Tarik Skubal: Throws five scoreless in win

    Skubal (2-0) earned the win Friday against Minnesota, striking out five batters over five scoreless frames while giving up two hits and two walks.

    After throwing two perfect innings to begin the game, Skubal ran into a bit of trouble by allowing two runners to reach base during the third and fourth innings, but both times the left-hander was able to secure the final out and prevent any runs from coming across the plate. He now owns an impressive 2.08 ERA and 0.75 WHIP through 17.1 frames across his first three outings with a 20:4 K:BB. Skubal is tentatively scheduled to make his next start Wednesday against the Rangers, who currently own an AL-best .769 team OPS.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Confirmed for Saturday start

    Tigers manager A.J. Hinch announced Manning will be recalled from Triple-A Toledo to start the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Twins, Jason Beck of reports.

    The announcement is hardly a surprise, as Manning was scratched from his scheduled start with Toledo on Wednesday in preparation of a postponement. The right-hander made his season debut April 4 against the Mets and didn't allow a hit with four walks and three strikeouts over 5.2 scoreless frames.

  • Tigers' Andy Ibanez: Hitting, doing agility drills

    Ibanez (hamstring) has begun hitting and going through light agility drills, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

    Ibanez is on the injured list with a left hamstring strain which he suffered last weekend, but he's feeling well enough to start incorporating some baseball activities. There's no timeline for his return yet, but he would seem to have a good shot to be back before the end of April.

  • Tigers' Parker Meadows: Hitting seventh Friday

    Meadows is starting in center field and batting seventh Friday against the Twins.

    The 24-year-old had hit out of the leadoff spot in all seven of Detroit's games against a right-handed starter this season, but he's begun the campaign in a 2-for-25 slump and is being dropped down the order. It appears Meadows will retain the starting job in center field for now, but he'll likely need to get his bat on track soon in order to keep the role. Riley Greene will move atop the lineup Friday for Detroit.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Moves up to leadoff spot

    Greene is starting at shortstop and batting leadoff Friday against the Twins.

    The 23-year-old has primarily hit out of the cleanup spot this season but has also hit second and third, and he'll now make his way to the top of the lineup. Parker Meadows had served as Detroit's leadoff man against right-handed pitching to this point, but it appears his 2-for-25 start is getting him bumped down the order. Greene should see a boost in runs atop the order, though that'll likely be at the expense of RBI.
