      Tigers' Steven Moya: Added to Tuesday's lineup

      Moya was added to the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Phillies. Moya was not originally slated to start Tuesday, but manager Brad Ausmus moved Mike Aviles from left field to second base after Ian Kinsler (illness) was scratched, and that opened up a spot for Moya in left field. Moya will hit sixth against Phillies starter Jeremy Hellickson.

      Tigers' Steven Moya: Will start Monday

      Moya will start and bat sixth for Monday's game against the Phillies after Justin Upton was scratched with right quad tightness, Katie Strang of reports. The 24-year-old is hitting .318 in limited playing time with the Tigers but will likely receive more starts should Upton's injury cause him to miss significant time.

      Tigers' Steven Moya: Strong play keeps him in majors

      Moya went 3-for-4 with a double and triple Sunday in a 6-5 win over the Orioles. Moya has gone 6-for-15 (.400) since his call-up and that's been good enough that the Tigers sent Anthony Gose to Triple-A. Moya will get some at bats even when Cameron Maybin arrives back from the disabled list, so he may be a worthy addition to your roster.

      Tigers' Steven Moya: Will make fourth straight start

      Moya will start in left field and bat seventh Sunday against the Orioles. For at least a little bit, manager Brad Ausmus seems content to experiment with Moya as his everyday left fielder, as this will mark the 24-year-old's fourth start in a row. The Tigers have made room for Moya by moving Justin Upton to center field, relegating Anthony Gose to a bench role.

      Tigers' Steven Moya: In lineup Thursday, batting seventh

      Moya is in the lineup Thursday against Baltimore. He'll bat seventh in the order and start in left field. Moya immediately joins the lineup after being promoted from Triple-A Toledo earlier Thursday. The 24-year-old outfielder clubbed nine home runs and 11 doubles in 126 at-bats at Triple-A Toledo prior to being called up Thursday. He provides a rare left-handed bat in the Tigers lineup as they prepare to face right-hander Ubaldo Jiminez in the series opener.

      Tigers' Steven Moya: May start in place of Justin Upton on Thursday

      Moya was recalled and could start Thursday in place of the struggling Justin Upton, reports Moya has been tearing the stitches out of the ball in Triple-A, leading the Mud Hens in just about every offensive category (.310 with 11 doubles, nine home runs, 24 RBI, a .627 slugging percentage and a .968 OPS). And he's lowered his strikeout rate from 32.4 per cent (2015) to below 25 this season. Upton has struggled to start the season and leads the league in strikeouts (53 in 131 at bats). Moya will need to make the most of his opportunity in order to stick in the majors.

      Tigers' Steven Moya: Called up from Triple-A

      Moya will be recalled from Triple-A Toledo, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports. After optioning Tyler Collins to Toledo on Wednesday, the Tigers will now turn to Moya as a reserve outfielder and pinch-hit option off the bench. The lefty certainly has the minor league numbers to merit a promotion, slashing .310/.341/.627 with nine home runs over 126 at-bats this season. If he can work his way into the lineup while with the team, Moya could provide sneaky value as a minimum-priced option in daily formats.

      Tigers' Steven Moya: Slugs two home runs in season premiere

      Moya went 3-for-5 with two home runs and five RBI in Thursday's season debut for Triple-A Toledo. One of the top hitting prospects for the Tigers, Moya has struggled with strikeouts during his time in the minors, though the 24-year-old certainly has some pop. He hit 58 home runs between 2014 and 2015, though also fanned a staggering 338 times over that span. He will attempt to prove that he can hit for average and make more consistent contact at the higher levels.

      Tigers' Steven Moya: Will begin regular season in the minors

      The Tigers optioned Moya to Triple-A Toledo on Saturday. Moya made a big impression this spring by going 11-for-30 (.367) with four home runs and eight RBI. However, he just reached the Double-A level for the first time last season and would not have seen regular playing time with the big club had he made the cut, so the Tigers decided to send him to Triple-A for more seasoning. Maya did see action with the Tigers each of the last two seasons, so there is a good chance he is called up again at some point in 2016.

      Tigers' Steven Moya: Leads Tigers in HR this preseason

      Moya became the Tigers' team leader in home runs this spring Sunday. He's also cut back on his strikeouts, a trait that has kept him in the minors so far in his career. The 6-foot-7, 260-pound outfielder has bashed four homers in just 19 plate appearances; he's hitting .444 with eight hits and eight RBI. Moya has prodigious power, but his knock has always been plate discipline. However, he's using a new approach and has struck out just three times this spring. Moya could crack the team's 40-man roster coming out of spring, but will likely start the season at Triple-A to make sure that changed approach becomes habit.
