Tigers' Mikie Mahtook: Returns from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mahtook (undisclosed) went 3-for-4 with a home run and two RBI for Triple-A Toledo on Wednesday.

Mahtook suffered an unspecified injury last week and was briefly sidelined for the Mud Hens, but he is 5-for-8 in his first two games back in the lineup. The 29-year-old has a .265/.361/.485 slash line in 74 games at Toledo this season.

Tigers' Mikie Mahtook: Dealing with undisclosed injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mahtook was removed from Tuesday's game at Triple-A Toledo with an unspecified injury, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Mahtook has been with Toledo since being removed from the 40-man roster in April and has an .823 OPS in 72 games with the Mud Hens. It's currently unclear if the 29-year-old is expected to require a trip to the injured list.

Tigers' Mikie Mahtook: Clears waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mahtook cleared waivers Saturday and was outrighted to Triple-A Toledo.

Mahtook showed promise in 2017, but his production fell off in 2018 and continued into this season. After starting 0-for-23 at the plate, his designation was no surprise. His spot will be filled by JaCoby Jones, who is returning from the injured list after a shoulder sprain held him out to begin the season.

Tigers' Mikie Mahtook: Removed from roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers designated Mahtook for assignment Thursday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

After opening the season with a 0-for-23 slump at the plate, Mahtook will lose his spot on the 40-man and active roster with JaCoby Jones (shoulder) due to return from the 10-day injured list. Since Mahtook has no minor-league options remaining, the Tigers will have to expose him to waivers before outrighting him to Triple-A Toledo.

Tigers' Mikie Mahtook: Sitting again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mahtook is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Indians, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

A two-day break wasn't enough for Mahtook to break his cold streak to begin the season, as he returned to action for Tuesday's series opener and went 0-for-4, leaving him hitless through 23 at-bats. Mahtook should see semi-regular action through the end of the week but will likely be the top choice for a demotion when JaCoby Jones (shoulder) is activated from the injured list.

Tigers' Mikie Mahtook: Sitting in third straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mahtook is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Royals.

Mahtook opened the season as the Tigers' presumptive top center fielder with JaCoby Jones (shoulder) on the injured list, but Mahtook's hold on the No. 1 job now looks tenuous at best. He'll be on the bench for a third straight game while Niko Goodrum gets a spin in center.

Tigers' Mikie Mahtook: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mahtook is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Yankees.

Mahtook is hitless through his first five appearances this season (16 at-bats), so he'll head to the bench to clear his head. Niko Goodrum will cover center field in his stead, pushing Jeimer Candelario to DH duties while opening up a spot in the lineup for Gordon Beckham to start at the hot corner.

Tigers' Mikie Mahtook: Sitting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mahtook is not in Saturday's lineup against the Blue Jays.

He went 0-for-7 with four strikeouts in the first two games of the season. Dustin Peterson gets the nod in left field while Niko Goodrum slides to center field.

Tigers' Mikie Mahtook: Pops third spring home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mahtook went 1-for-2 with a walk, a two-run home run and two runs scored in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Blue Jays.

Mahtook has had a decent spring, as he now has an .850 OPS to go along with three home runs, eight RBI and two stolen bases. The 29-year-old regressed in 2018, as he posted a .635 OPS after registering a .787 mark a season earlier. Mahtook could begin the season as the Tigers' starting center fielder with JaCoby Jones (shoulder) slated to open the year on the injured list. Jones isn't expected to be out very long, so Mahtook could return to the bench unless he gets off to a hot start and forces his way into more playing time.

Tigers' Mikie Mahtook: Goes deep twice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mahtook went 2-for-3 with two solo home runs in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals.

Mahtook's first two spring home runs helped push his Grapefruit League OPS to 1.298. After a relatively successful 2017, the 29-year-old regressed significantly last season with a .202/.276/.359 slash line. A strong spring could help Mahtook earn a little more playing time to begin the season, though he is likely going to break camp as a reserve outfielder.

Tigers' Mikie Mahtook: Picks up start in left Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mahtook is starting in left field and batting fifth in Saturday's game against the Brewers, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

With Christin Stewart (abdomen) being held out for the second straight day, Mahtook gets another chance to start in left. After a solid 2017 campaign, the 28-year-old has regressed this season with a .208/.281/.370 slash line. It's unclear what his 2019 role might be with the rebuilding Tigers, as Stewart and Nick Castellanos seem to have the corner-outfield spots locked down, leaving Mahtook, JaCoby Jones and Victor Reyes as the existing members of the roster who could be jockeying for the job in center.

Tigers' Mikie Mahtook: Clubs go-ahead homer Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mahtook went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer Saturday in the eighth inning that proved to be the game-winner against the Royals.

Mahtook deposited a Jason Hammel pitch into the left-field seats with a runner on for his ninth home run of the year, putting the Tigers ahead for good. One member of the Tigers' outfield glut being evaluated for 2019, Mahtook, who turns 29 in November, has also taken reps at first base, hoping to enhance his candidacy for a long-term role as Detroit rebuilds. His lackluster .217/.289/.389 slash line, however, doesn't do him many favors.

Tigers' Mikie Mahtook: Working out at first base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mahtook took fielding practice at first base Friday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

With Victor Martinez set to retire, Miguel Cabrera could be a full-time designated hitter next season, opening up at-bats at first base. Mahtook would be an unusual candidate for those at-bats, however, as his .216/.290/.377 line already plays poorly in the outfield and wouldn't be close to good enough at first base. The added defensive flexibility could at least help him stick around in a bench capacity.

Tigers' Mikie Mahtook: Likely to lose playing time down stretch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mahtook may see a reduced role following the promotion of Christin Stewart to the big leagues, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Manager Ron Gardenhire said Stewart will be the team's starting left fielder for the remainder of the season, effectively leaving center field as the only open position in the outfield. Mahtook will battle JaCoby Jones and Victor Reyes for playing time, which doesn't bode well for Mahtook given his recent struggles and the fact that his two competitors are younger than him.

Tigers' Mikie Mahtook: Blasts home run, swipes base in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mahtook went 2-for-3 with a walk, a two-run home run, two runs scored and a stolen base in Tuesday's 8-3 win over the White Sox.

Mahtook did a little bit of everything in this one, hitting his sixth home run of the year and stealing his third base. While it's generally been a disappointing season for the 28-year-old outfielder, he did show a pulse in 2017 with a .276/.330/.457 slash line and 12 home runs in 109 games, so perhaps he could be in line for a decent finish to 2018.

September 3, 2018 11:32 AM
Tigers' Mikie Mahtook: On bench Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mahtook is not starting Monday against the White Sox.

Mahtook started 14 straight games in late August but has now sat for two of the last four. He's hitting a disappointing .213/.288/.341 in 49 games for the Tigers this season. Victor Reyes will get the start in left field in his absence.

September 1, 2018 02:32 PM
Tigers' Mikie Mahtook: Out of lineup Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mahtook is not in the lineup against the Yankees on Friday.

Mahtook will receive a day off after starting the past 14 games, including a rough 0-for-5 showing with a pair of strikeouts during Thursday's series opener. Niko Goodrum will man left field while Dawel Lugo gets another a start in the infield.

Tigers' Mikie Mahtook: Goes deep in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mahtook went 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Royals.

Mahtook drove in both runs for the Tigers in their 9-2 loss, putting the team up 1-0 in the first inning with a single before adding a solo homer in the ninth inning. He's now in the midst of a six-game hitting streak, going 9-for-20 with three homers over that stretch while raising his batting average from .185 to .220.

August 25, 2018 10:36 PM
Tigers' Mikie Mahtook: Homers again Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mahtook went 1-for-3 with a solo homer in Saturday's loss to the White Sox.

Mahtook's solo homer in the second inning accounted for the Tigers' only run of the night. The homer -- his second in three games -- extended Mahtook's hitting streak to a modest three games and raised his batting average to .200 for the first time since July 13.

August 23, 2018 08:00 PM
Tigers' Mikie Mahtook: Homers, scores twice in win over White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mahtook went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the White Sox.

The home run, a sixth-inning blast off of James Shields, was just the third of the season for Mahtook. After slashing .276/.330/.457 with 12 home runs in 2017, 2018 has been a forgettable encore for the 28-year-old outfielder. Mahtook has bounced between Triple-A and the majors, and he's slashing just .195/.273/.308 at the MLB level.
