  • Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Out with oblique injury

    Baddoo is on the 7-day injured list at Triple-A Toledo with an oblique strain, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

    The 23-year-old hasn't seen game action with Toledo since May 13 and is unavailable due to the injury. It's unclear exactly how long Baddoo is expected to be sidelined.

  • Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Starting in Toledo on Friday

    Baddoo (illness) is starting Friday's game at Triple-A Toledo.

    Baddoo missed the last two games due to a non-COVID illness, but he'll start in center field and bat second Friday. The 23-year-old went 0-for-5 with a strikeout during Tuesday's game in Toledo.

  • Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Dealing with non-COVID illness

    Baddoo hasn't played at Triple-A Toledo since Tuesday due to a non-COVID illness, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Baddoo was optioned to Triple-A on Sunday, but he's played in just one game since reporting to the minors. The 23-year-old should be considered day-to-day and will likely be able to return to the lineup in Toledo following a relatively brief absence.

  • Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Sent to Triple-A

    The Tigers optioned Baddoo to Triple-A Toledo on Sunday.

    One of the standouts during Detroit's surprise 77-win campaign in 2021, Baddoo's steep regression at the plate has been a factor in the Tigers limping to an 8-19 start to the 2022 season. The 23-year-old recently started losing work in center field to Derek Hill, and he'll now be moved off the 26-man active roster entirely in order to play regularly at Toledo and perhaps regain some confidence at the dish. Through his first 55 plate appearances of the season, Baddoo produced a .140/.218/.220 slash line (34 wRC+) while striking out 27.3 percent of the time.

  • Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Back in lineup Sunday

    Baddoo is starting in left field and batting ninth in Sunday's game against the Astros.

    Baddoo was out of the lineup Saturday, but he'll return Sunday for his third start in the last four games. Derek Hill is also starting Sunday, getting center field and the leadoff spot, with Austin Meadows (illness) out for the third straight day. Baddoo and Hill will continue to split time in center most days, with Baddoo typically out of the lineup against southpaws.

  • Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Takes seat Saturday

    Baddoo isn't starting Saturday against the Astros.

    Baddoo started in the last two games and went 1-for-6 with a walk and three strikeouts. Derek Hill is starting in center field and leading off Saturday.

  • Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Starting again Friday

    Baddoo is starting in center field and batting ninth Friday against the Astros, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    The 23-year-old appeared to lose his hold on the large-side platoon role in center field earlier this week, but he's now making his fourth start in the past five games. Baddoo has showed some life offensively over the past three games, going 3-for-8 with two walks, a run and a stolen base.

  • Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Out against righty again

    Baddoo is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Pirates.

    The lefty-hitting Baddoo finds himself on the bench for the second time in the Tigers' last three matchups with a right-handed starting pitcher, as Bryse Wilson takes the hill for Pittsburgh in the series opener. At this stage, Baddoo appears to have lost hold of his large-side platoon role in center field and looks like more of a fourth outfielder. Derek Hill will pick up another start at Baddoo's expense and should enjoy steady playing time in center.

  • Tigers' Akil Baddoo: On bench again

    Baddoo is not in Friday's lineup against the Dodgers.

    He will sit for a second straight day, with Thursday's benching coming against a righty and Friday's benching coming against a lefty. Derek Hill has started in center field both days.

  • Tigers' Akil Baddoo: On bench Thursday

    Baddoo isn't starting Thursday against the Twins.

  • Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Out of lineup

    Baddoo will sit Tuesday against the Twins.

    Baddoo hits the bench even with a righty (Chris Paddack) on the mound for the Twins. The second-year outfielder has struggled to get going this season, slashing .118/.189/.235 in 37 plate appearances, though a .125 BABIP likely accounts for at least some of his poor performance. Derek Hill will get the nod in center field.

  • Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Back in center Sunday

    Baddoo is starting in center field and batting ninth in Sunday's game against the Rockies.

    Baddoo sat in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader with Colorado starting lefty Austin Gomber, but he'll return Sunday. The 23-year-old outfielder is off to a slow start with a .129/.182/.258 slash line through 10 games, and he'll likely continue to sit against southpaws.

  • Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Sits for night game

    Baddoo will sit for the second half of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rockies, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

    Baddoo went 1-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored in the first game of the day. He'll sit for the nightcap, with Derek Hill starting in center field.

  • Tigers' Akil Baddoo: On bench again

    Baddoo is not in Thursday's lineup against the Yankees.

    He sat out Wednesday against righty Luis Severino and will head to the bench again against lefty Jordan Montgomery. Baddoo is hitting .115 with a .179 OBP and a 28.6 K% through 26 at-bats this season. Victor Reyes gets the start in center field.

  • Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Not starting Wednesday

    Baddoo isn't starting Wednesday against the Yankees.

    Baddoo will be out of the lineup for the second time in the last three games after going just 1-for-10 with a run, two walks and two strikeouts in his last four appearances. Victor Reyes will start in center field and bat sixth.

  • Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Out of Saturday's lineup

    Baddoo is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Royals.

    With Kansas City starting lefty Kris Bubic, Detroit will sit both Baddoo and Austin Meadows, giving way to Eric Haase and Daz Cameron in the outfield. Baddoo is off to a slow start, batting just .091 through seven games, so perhaps he gets going after the off day.

  • Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Hits first home run

    Baddoo went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Baddoo has been off to a slow start, as he's batting just .125 and has been slotted near the bottom of the Detroit lineup. He should be able to get going after a promising MLB debut last season, but with the Tigers adding Austin Meadows and Javier Baez, Baddoo may have a hard time moving up in the order.

  • Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Day off Sunday

    Baddoo is not in Sunday's lineup against the White Sox.

    Baddoo has started each of Detroit's first two games, though he has gone 0-for-7 with three strikeouts. Victor Reyes will enter the lineup in Baddoo's absence, starting in center field while hitting seventh.

  • Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Should slot in center

    Baddoo will likely begin the season as Detroit's primary center fielder, flanked by Austin Meadows and Robbie Grossman, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

    With Riley Greene (foot) out for a while, it seemed like Victor Reyes could play center with Baddoo in left most days. However, the team's trade for Meadows on Monday changed things a bit, as he'll likely fit into left and push Baddoo over to center. Reyes should fill a fourth outfielder role for now, while Baddoo should remain a starter, which is good news for his fantasy outlook. Plus, the addition of Meadows figures to boost the whole offense, which might enhance Baddoo's counting stats, though he could still sit against lefty starters on occasion.

  • Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Triples, scores Monday

    Baddoo went 1-for-2 with a triple and a run scored in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Blue Jays.

    Baddoo has now appeared in three spring training contests and he has a triple, a home run and two runs scored. The 23-year-old could put up some fun numbers near the top of the Tigers' lineup this season, though he'll need to show improvement against lefties to really break through. Baddoo had an .841 OPS against righties in 2021 but that figure dropped to just .523 against southpaws.
