      Tigers' Steven Moya: Focus on hitting left-handed pitching in winter ball

      Moya hit .298/.350/.466 with four home runs and 27 RBI in 131 at bats with Toros del Este in the Dominican League this winter. Moya played winter ball ostensibly to work on his game against left-handed pitching after hitting .213 with 56 strikeouts in 164 at bats against lefties for Toledo (AAA) in 2015. There seems to be some progress -- Moya went 24-for 77 (.312) against lefties with two home runs, 19 RBI and 23 strikeouts. His future is tied to his ability to offset those Ks.

      Bad spring doesn't sour Tigers on OF prospect Steven Moya

      Tigers outfielder Steven Moya was optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Sunday following a rough spring at the plate. The 23-year-old prospect hit just .125 (4 for 32) with one home run, 12 strikeouts and no walks. Despite the poor performance, the Tigers still have high hopes for Moya, who hit .276 with 33 doubles, 35 home runs and 105 RBI in 133 games at Double-A last season. "He scuffled a little bit and he knows he's been scuffling with his swing," manager Brad Ausmus said, per the Detroit Free Press. "But this was only roughly a month's worth of Steven Moya's resume. "He's going to be a good player. He wasn't sent out just because he was struggling. We have other outfielders that are kind of locked in at this point but he's a good kid, he's as hard a worker as I've come across and he will get through this. "I'm not concerned about it at all but it's tough for a guy to go through it, a hitting funk like this. It's hard on you mentally but he'll be fine."

      Tigers' Steven Moya unlikely to make opening day roster

      Tigers outfielder Steven Moya is unlikely to make the team's opening day roster, according to mlive.com. Moya will get a chance to open the year with the club during spring training, but even that seems like a long shot at this point. "At this point, it would probably be tough," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. Assistant general manager Al Avila agreed, saying it would be more beneficial for the 23-year-old Moya to receive consistent at-bats. "With a guy like Moya, you don't want to bring him in and have him on the bench to play once in a while," Avila said. "You want him to be playing every single day." Ausmus added that he believes the team's outfield is set, and Moya likely wouldn't receive significant playing time early unless an injury struck. Moya hit .276/.306/.555 over 515 at-bats at Double-A last season. Moya is rated as the team's second-best prospect coming into the year, according to Baseball America.

      Tigers' Dombrowski: Steven Moya 'relatively close' to making impact

      Tigers outfield prospect Steven Moya, who was the MVP of the Eastern League (Double-A) in 2014, is expected to open the season at Triple-A Toledo, per the Detroit Free Press. "I don't know if I'd say we're buying time for Moya," Tigers president and general manager Dave Dombrowski said last week. "Probably when a guy as talented as Moya is ready, he'll make his way onto a team. I don't think we could absolutely say, trying to win a pennant, trying to win a world championship, you can count on him being 100 percent ready." The 23-year-old Moya hit .276 with a .555 slugging percentage, .861 OPS, 33 doubles, 35 home runs and 105 RBI in 133 games last season at Double-A. He has a career .251/.444/.739 slash line over six minor-league seasons. Moya also made a brief appearance in the majors last season, batting .375 (3 for 8) in 11 games. "I think the development time will be good for him" Dombrowski said. "Could he come up and produce at some time during the year? Yes. He's relatively close."
