Tigers' Steven Moya: Could get a look in right field to begin year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With J.D. Martinez out for 3-4 weeks and set to begin the season on the DL, Steven Moya is a candidate to play in right field, Chris McCosky of the Detroit News reports.

Moya filled in for Martinez for a long stretch last season, but he struggled at the plate and in the field. The 25-year-old is not doing anything to earn the role this spring, as he's slashing just .186/.205/.233 with no home runs. The Tigers could decide to use Mikie Mahtook and Tyler Collins in right, and give prospect JaCoby Jones a shot in center. Moya is out of options, so if the Tigers try to send him down after spring training, he will have to pass through waivers.

Tigers' Anthony Gose: May convert to pitcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gose will play the outfield and do some throwing on the side Sunday with the possibility of converting to a pitcher, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Gose was primarily a pitcher during high school and reportedly featured a mid-90s fastball. He approached the Tigers about the potential position change, so it seems that it's something he is serious about. The 26-year-old was reassigned to minor league camp Sunday.

Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Back in lineup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera (back) will man first base and bat third in the order during Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Blue Jays, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Cabrera was able to take batting practice Saturday, which was good enough for the Tigers to sign off on his return to the lineup after back tightness had troubled him since he suited up for Venezuela in the World Baseball Classic. He's only expected to get two at-bats Sunday, as manager Brad Ausmus wants to keep Cabrera off his feet as much as possible.

Tigers' Mikie Mahtook: Could get time in right
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With J.D. Martinez out 3-4 weeks, Mahtook is a candidate to play some in right field, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Mahtook was penciled into a center field platoon with Tyler Collins to begin spring training, but both are options to play in right. Mahtook played 18 games in right for Tampa Bay in 2016 and 23 in center. Mahtook got off to a terrible start this spring, as he was hitting just .074 through his first 12 games. Since then, he's been able to get the average up to .213, which should give the club at least some confidence that Mahtook can be a regular player. But he might not have the longest leash, especially with Martinez due back and prospect JaCoby Jones waiting in the wings.

Tigers' JaCoby Jones: Continues to make case for MLB role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is having a strong spring, and the injury to J.D. Martinez could open the door to the 25-year-old making the roster out of spring training, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Jones is not a candidate to replace Martinez in right field, but the Tigers could use Mikie Mahtook and Tyler Collins there. Both Mahtook and Collins were penciled into a center field platoon, so if they see some time in right, that could open the door to Jones in center. Jones, the No. 10 prospect in the Tigers' system, is slashing .324/.390/.568 through 18 spring training games. The organization wants to make sure he gets regular playing time, so if he does begin the year in the majors, expect him to get plenty of at-bats. He's someone to keep an eye on late in fantasy drafts or on the waiver wire.
