    Tigers' Dustin Garneau: Retreats to bench

    Dustin Garneau is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the White Sox.Garneau caught each of the Detroit Tigers' last three games and five of the last six, going 3-for-15 with three home runs and a walk. The 34-year-old journeyman's recent power spike looks like it will afford him at least a part-time role for the Tigers, even though he's behind Eric Haase on the depth chart. The Tigers' willingness to deploy Haase in left field and at designated hitter will open up more work behind the dish for Garneau compared to most backup catchers.

    Dustin Garneau went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Brewers.Garneau and Eric Haase each went deep, powering the Detroit Tigers to the 2-0 win. Haase played left field in this one, which allowed Garneau to start behind the plate. Haase is likely to see more time at catcher down the stretch, though Garneau may be earning more playing time with six home runs in just 15 games this season, including three long balls in his last four appearances.

    Tigers' Dustin Garneau: Goes deep twice Friday

    Dustin Garneau went 2-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI in Friday's 15-5 win over the Reds.Whatever magic was fueling Eric Haase's surprising power surge in 2021 may have rubbed off on Garneau. The veteran catcher has homered three times in his last two starts, and the three long balls tie his prior big-league season high in only eight games for the Detroit Tigers. It's not likely he'll keep it up given his .207/.289/.363 slash line through 450 MLB plate appearances, but much like with Haase before him, Detroit has little to lose by giving the 34-year-old a chance.

    Dustin Garneau went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Athletics.Garneau went deep in the fifth inning for his first home run of the season. He's now played in seven games for the Detroit Tigers and has a .263/.263/.526 slash line. Eric Haase has established himself as the team's primary catcher, so Garneau will have limited fantasy value moving forward in a reserve role, though that could change if anything happens to Haase.

    Tigers' Dustin Garneau: Sinks to second on depth chart

    Dustin Garneau will start at catcher and bat eighth Sunday against the Blue Jays.Heading into the weekend, Garneau had started at catcher in three of the Detroit Tigers' prior four contests, but he'll serve as the No. 2 option moving forward after Eric Haase returned from the injured list Friday. After he was behind the plate for the first two games of the series with Toronto, Haase will get a routine maintenance day Sunday, affording Garneau a turn in the lineup.

    Dustin Garneau will start at catcher and bat eighth Sunday against the Blue Jays.Since being acquired from the Rockies on Wednesday and having his contract selected by the Detroit Tigers, Garneau has picked up three starts in four games.

    Tigers' Dustin Garneau: Dealt to Tigers

    The Detroit Tigers acquired Dustin Garneau from the Rockies in exchange for cash considerations Wednesday, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports. Detroit will select his contract and add him to the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster.Since joining the Rockies on a minor-league deal in late July, Garneau played 11 games for Triple-A Albuquerque and hit .229 with one home run and six RBI. With No. 1 catcher Eric Haase (back) nursing an injury, Garneau will provide the Tigers with another healthy option at the position beyond Grayson Greiner. The 33-year-old Garneau, who hit .158 in 17 games with Houston last season, likely won't make more than a couple starts per week in place of Greiner if Haase requires a stint on the injured list.
