Top Jeimer Candelario News

  • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Out of Sunday's lineup

    Candelario is not in Sunday's lineup against the Orioles.

    He is hitting .255/.283/.471 with two home runs in 14 games this month. Harold Castro will start at third base and hit seventh.

  • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Records three hits in Game 1

    Candelario went 3-for-5 with a double and three RBI in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Athletics.

    Candelario followed that up with an 0-for-4 effort in the second game, but fantasy managers will welcome the three hits in one day. It's in fact the first three-hit game of the season for the third baseman, who's struggled a bit with a .206 batting average for the year. Candelario is batting .289 this month, however.

  • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Hits key home run

    Candelario went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's loss to the Astros.

    Candelario delivered a huge hit in the top of the ninth inning, when his home run against Ryan Pressly with two outs and a runner on tied the game at 2-2. However, the Astros rallied for the win in the bottom of the frame. Candelario is starting to get going, as the third baseman is riding a five-game hitting streak. He's gone 8-for-18 in that span with two home runs, three RBI and six runs scored.

  • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Records three hits Wednesday

    Candelario went 3-for-7 with two doubles and two runs scored across both games of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Pirates.

    Still batting just .188 this season, Candelario is starting to show some signs of life. Factoring in Wednesday's production, the third baseman now has hits in four straight contests, including two multi-hit efforts. Candelario was much more productive at the plate the last two years than he has been so far in 2022, so fantasy managers will likely want to remain patient.

  • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Hits first home run

    Candelario went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Candelario had a two-hit game Saturday and followed that up with his first home run of the season Sunday, a solo shot in the top of the ninth inning. He's still scuffling overall with a .164 average and .485 OPS, though perhaps these last two games will get him going.

  • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Scores twice in win

    Candelario went 2-for-3 with two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Dodgers.

    Any good performance is welcome at this point for Candelario, who came into Saturday hitless over his previous four games. The third baseman is still batting just .159 this season, but after hitting .271 last year and .297 in 2020, it seems likely that he'll get his bat going eventually. Saturday's two-hit effort was just the second multi-hit game of the season for Candelario.

  • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Gets Thursday off

    Candelario is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Twins.

    He'll sit for the first time this season while he endures a prolonged slump at the plate. Harold Castro will fill it at the hot corner for Candelario, who went 0-for-10 over his last three starts to drop his season-long average to .143.

  • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Posts first multi-hit effort

    Candelario went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in Wednesday's loss to the Yankees.

    Candelario recorded his first multi-hit effort in 11 tries this season, as it's been a struggle in the early going for the 28-year-old. He's batting just .171 with a .488 OPS and is still seeking his first home run. Candelario batted .271 with a .794 OPS and 16 home runs in 2021, so the production will likely pick up at some point.

  • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Scores, drives in one Saturday

    Candelario went 1-for-4 with a double, a run scored and an RBI in Saturday's loss to the White Sox.

    The Tigers only mustered two runs in this one, and Candelario was right in the middle of all the scoring. The third baseman has batted cleanup in each of the team's first two games, so he should have plenty of opportunities to drive in runs this season if that holds up, especially with the likes of Austin Meadows and Javier Baez now ahead of him in the lineup.

  • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Hits first spring home run

    Candelario went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Yankees.

    Candelario also struck out twice white the homer was his first hit in 12 spring at-bats, so it's been a bit of a rocky start. In any case, he should be locked in as Detroit's starting third baseman after slashing .271/.351/.443 last season with 16 home runs. Candelario is on a one-year, $5.8 million deal with the Tigers after agreeing to terms Tuesday to avoid arbitration, per Robert Murray of FanSided.com.

  • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: No arbitration necessary

    Candelario and the Tigers agreed to a one-year, $5.8 million deal Tuesday to avoid arbitration, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    The agreement means the two sides won't have to go through arbitration. Candelario is coming off a season in which he hit .271/.351/.443 with 16 homers and figures to be a key part of an improving Tigers lineup this season.

  • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Not starting Sunday

    Candelario is on the bench for Sunday's season finale against the White Sox.

    Barring an appearance off the bench, Candelario finishes the season hitting .235 with a pair of doubles in his last 10 games. Isaac Paredes is starting at third base Sunday.

  • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Receives rare day off

    Candelario is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the White Sox.

    Candelario will exit the lineup for the first time since June 26, ending a streak of 73 consecutive starts. Though he doesn't stand out in any one counting-stats category except for doubles (41), Candelario's status as one of the game's top ironmen in 2021 has made him a useful compiler for fantasy managers. Across 588 plate appearances, Candelario has delivered a solid .273 average to go with 16 home runs, 72 runs and 65 RBI.

  • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Hits 15th home run

    Candelario went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Rays.

    Candelario hit his 15th home run of the season in the ninth inning, continuing a recent power surge for the 27-year-old. He now has five home runs in 14 games this month, including two in a game Sunday. Candelario is getting closer to his career-high mark of 19 long balls in a season, which he set back in 2018.
