Kansas City2-12-1
Tigers' Anibal Sanchez: Unsatisfied with poor spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Sanchez said he was disappointed with how he pitched in his Cactus League debut Monday, but remained confident that he'll bounce back, Evan Woodbery of MLive Media Group reports.

The veteran right-hander's frustration with how he pitched seemed justified considering that he allowed three earned runs and four hits in just one inning of work. However, Sanchez did not sound overly concerned about being able to straighten things out prior to the start of the regular season. While it's tough to take much away from a poor outing this early in spring training, Sanchez will obviously need to improve his effectiveness in future appearances this March in order to have a shot at cracking Detroit's starting rotation.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Healthy in first spring appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmerman struck out one and allowed one run on two hits in 2.0 innings during his spring debut Monday.

This is a big first step for Zimmerman, who was only able to pitch 105.1 innings in 2016 due to neck issues. He received two neck injections over the offseason and reportedly came into spring training feeling 100 percent. The 30-year-old is looking to rebound after posting a 4.87 ERA last season, and staying healthy will be the key for him in 2017.

Tigers' Dixon Machado: Plays third base Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Machado started at third base in Sunday's spring training game, his first time appearing at the position since 2015, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Machado is primarily a shortstop who also played a little second base last season. Machado, who is out of options, is battling for a bench spot this spring. "Versatility will help, for sure," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "Versatility always helps when it comes to guys that could potentially be coming off the bench." Machado could be a useful defensive option for the Tigers, but he probably won't play often enough to offer much from a fantasy perspective.

Tigers' Chad Bell: Impresses in Tigers debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell retired three batters on five pitches in an inning of work in Sunday's spring training loss to the Mets. He struck out one.

Bell was traded to the Tigers in May and he spent the rest of the season with Triple-A Toledo. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus has said he's intrigued by the lefty, who can hit 93-94 mph on the gun. Bell will likely start the year at Toledo again, but he could work his way into the mix at the MLB level.

Tigers' J.D. Martinez: Back in lineup Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (pectoral) will man right field and bat in the cleanup spot in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Braves.

Martinez was only sidelined a couple of days with pectoral tightness, and his reentry into the lineup indicates he's fully recovered from the issue. Even though an injury-plagued 2016 season dinged his final numbers, Martinez still profiles as one of the game's top power bats. His .908 OPS last season was actually superior to what he provided in 2015, when he smacked a career-high 38 homers.
