    • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Sent to Triple-A
      By RotoWire Staff

      Candelario was optioned to Triple-A Toledo following Wednesday's loss to the Astros, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. Candelario went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts Wednesday, bringing his current slump to 2-for-35. The 25-year-old has only two home runs and nine RBI while slashing .192/.285/.288 with 46 strikeouts in 165 plate appearances this season, but it's still somewhat surprising to see him demoted after starting 139 games last season. The Tigers have yet to announce a corresponding move.

    • Candelario isn't starting Tuesday's game against the Astros, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. Candelario is just 2-for-31 over his last eight games, so he'll get a night off to regroup. In his absence, Gordon Beckham will draw the start at the hot corner and hit seventh.

    • Candelario will start at third base and bat seventh Sunday against the Twins, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. Candelario served as the Tigers' leadoff man for every game between April 23 and May 9, but he appears to have surrendered that gig after managing a weak .192/.323/.288 slash line over that stretch. He'll now hit in the bottom half of the lineup for his third start in a row as manager Ron Gardenhire experiments with Niko Goodrum atop the order.

    • Candelario is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Twins, according to Chris McCosky of The Detroit News. Candelario went hitless in 19 at-bats over his last five games, so manager Ron Gardenhire decided to hold him out of the lineup for the first time since April 10. Given how frequently Candelario has been playing, it seems likely he will be back in the lineup for Saturday's second game.

      By RotoWire Staff

      Candelario went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer in a 15-3 loss to the Royals on Saturday. Saturday's game proved to be a lost cause for the Tigers, but Candelario was finally able to hit his first home run of the season. The 25-year-old is slashing .234/.336/.393 and has 15 runs scored and seven RBI over 29 games and has recently taken over as the Tigers' leadoff hitter.
