  • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Not starting Wednesday

  • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Tallies three hits, two RBI

    Candelario went 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI in Wednesday's win over the Padres.

    Candelario has been locked in lately, as he's now batting .394 across his last 10 games with four home runs and 10 RBI. It looked like the 28-year-old was losing his grip on everyday duties at third base heading into the All-Star break, but he's started off the second half strongly and has likely enhanced his job security moving forward.

  • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Power surge continues

    Candelario went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run, a double and an additional RBI in Tuesday's 6-4 extra-inning loss to the Padres.

    Candelario has now left the yard three times in the past two days and on four occasions since the All-Star break, nearly matching his home-run total from the entire first half of the season (six). The 28--year-old's recent power surge has allowed him to reclaim everyday duties at third base after he appeared at risk of losing the job to Willi Castro heading into the break.

  • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Goes deep twice

    Candelario went 3-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI in Monday's 12-4 win over San Diego.

    Candelario knocked a solo shot off of Sean Manaea in the fourth inning followed by a two-run homer against MacKenzie Gore in the fifth. He's gone deep four times over his last 11 appearances after snapping a 20-game homerless drought. The 28-year-old is slashing .203/.269/.352 with nine home runs and 30 runs scored on the year.

  • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Gets breather Sunday

    Candelario is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Twins.

    Candelario started the second half with three straight starts at third base, but he'll get a break Sunday. It looks like the 28-year-old will be given the chance to start most days at the hot corner moving forward, though he was losing playing time to Willi Castro before the All Star break. Candelario has struggled this season with a .586 OPS, so he'll need to get the bat going to hold onto a regular role.

  • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Goes deep Thursday

    Candelario went 3-for-7 with a solo home run and two runs scored across both games of Thursday's doubleheader against the Athletics.

    The home run in Game 1 was Candelario's seventh of the year and second this month. The 28-year-old has seen a dip in playing time recently, though he did start both contests Thursday at third base. Candelario will continue to jockey with Willi Castro and Harold Castro for playing time, and the former will need to improve his .198 average and .590 OPS if he wants to hold off his challengers down the stretch.

    Candelario is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Guardians.

    Candelario will be on the bench for the third game in a row as the Tigers play their final contest before the All-Star break. Willi Castro, who appears to have overtaken Candelario on the depth chart at third base, will start at the hot corner and bat eighth in the series finale.

  • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Sitting out Sunday

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

    With four hits -- including a home run -- to go with two walks, four RBI and four runs over his last four starts, Candelario's dormant bat is beginning to warm up. He'll give way at third base to Harold Castro in Sunday's series finale, but Candelario still looks like the top option on the depth chart.

  • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Drives in three runs

    Candelario went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 7-5 win over the White Sox.

    Candelario belted a two-run homer off Lucas Giolito in the sixth inning before hitting an RBI single and scoring in the seventh. It was his sixth home run of the year and first since May 29. The 28-year-old registered a brutal .483 OPS during his 20-game homerless drought and he's now slashing .191/.257/.320 through 65 games this season.

  • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Sitting for series finale

    Candelario is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Guardians.

    He'll sit for the second time in the four-game series, after he previously headed to the bench for the second contest of Monday's doubleheader. Though Candelario was productive in Tuesday's 11-4 win by going 1-for-4 with a walk, two runs and an RBI, he's still cobbled together an unremarkable .222/.333/.250 in 11 games since coming off the 10-day injured list June 20. Kody Clemens will pick up the start at third base Wednesday, and he and Harold Castro could continue to encroach on Candelario's playing time until the 28-year-old starts to get going at the plate.

  • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Catches breather Monday night

    Candelario is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against the Guardians.

  • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Retreats to bench

    Candelario is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks.

    In his first four games since returning from the injured list Monday, Candelario went 4-for-16 with four strikeouts. He still appears to have a hold on the Tigers' everyday third-base job, but he'll give way to Harold Castro in the series finale.

  • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Back from injured list

    Candelario (shoulder) was activated off the injured list as expected Monday.

    Candelario wound up missing two weeks with a left shoulder subluxation, but he's good to go after grabbing six hits (including two doubles and a homer) across four rehab games. The Tigers will hope to see more performances like that going forward and fewer of the games which saw him slump to a .181/.236/.319 line prior to the injury.

  • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Should return Monday

    Candelario (shoulder) is expected to be activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Monday's game at Boston, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Candelario has been sidelined with a left shoulder subluxation since June 5, but he's ready to rejoin the Tigers after going 6-for-16 with a home run and two doubles during a four-game rehab stint with Triple-A Toledo. The 28-year-old has an awful .555 OPS through 52 games this season, but perhaps he'll reward patient fantasy managers and continue the strong performance from the rehab assignment upon his return to the big-league club.

  • Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Starts rehab assignment Wednesday

    Candelario (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Toledo on Wednesday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

    Candelario was cleared to head out on the minor-league assignment after he checked out fine when he completed agility drills Tuesday at Comerica Park. He'll most likely stay with Toledo through the weekend, but if all goes well, Candelario could be ready to return from the 10-day injured list and reclaim everyday duties at third base when the Tigers begin a series in Boston on Monday.
