Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Busts out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Candelario went 3-for-6 with two runs scored and three RBI in Friday's 17-13 extra-innings win over the Pirates.

The RBI were his first of the season. Candelario began the season by digging an 0-for-17 hole with nine strikeouts, but he appears to be finding a groove -- Friday's outburst was his second multi-hit performance in the last three games.

Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Not starting Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Candelario is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader versus the Reds.

The Tigers managed only four hits during the first game, with Candelario going 2-for-3 with a triple. He entered Sunday's twin bill hitless in 19 plate appearances. Dawel Lugo will start Game 2 at the hot corner.

Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Not starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Candelario is not in the lineup Friday against the Reds.

Candelario sits for the third time in the season's first eight games. He's gone hitless in 17 at-bats so far, striking out nine times, hardly helping his case for an everyday role. Harold Castro gets the nod at third base in his absence.

Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Struggles continue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Candelario went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts against the Royals Wednesday and is hitless in 13 at-bats this season.

This wasn't the start Candelario was looking for, especially with Dawel Lugo, Harold Castro and Jordy Mercer all options to play at third base. The Tigers will likely show some patience with the 26-year-old, but Candelario could really use a hot streak to make sure he doesn't shift to more of a bench role moving forward.

Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: On bench again Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Candelario is not in the lineup Monday against the Royals.

Candelario started at third base in both of the first two games of the season, but he'll now sit for the second straight contest. Jordy Mercer starts at third base in his absence.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Ahead of Lugo in competition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Ron Gardenhire suggested Monday that Candelario is the current leader in the competition for the Tigers' top third-base job, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports. "[Candelario] and [Lugo] are gonna continue the battle right here. We haven't made the final decision on that one yet. "Candy," I think, was probably doing a little bit better than [Lugo], but I like [Lugo] a lot."

Isaac Paredes and No. 1 overall draft pick Spencer Torkelson are also expected to be included in the competition, but since neither player has any prior MLB experience, Candelario and Lugo stand out as the clear frontrunners for the job. Candelario opened the 2019 campaign as the Tigers' top option at the position, but he largely struggled in his second full season with the club, slashing .203/.306/.337 with eight home runs in 386 plate appearances. Lugo received some work at third base when Candelario disappointed, but the former was marginally worse at the dish, posting a 65 wRC+ to Candelario's 72 wRC+.

Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Expected to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Candelario will likely be the Tigers' starting third baseman to begin the 2020 season, but he's facing pressure from prospects Isaac Paredes and Spencer Torkelson in camp, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

Candelario and Dawel Lugo were battling for the third base job before play was suspended, and the belief was that Candelario had separated himself. However, Paredes and Torkelson are expected to be big parts of the team's future, and both were added to the summer camp roster. Lugo is also still in the mix at camp. While the organization likely won't rush Paredes or Torkelson into action, Candelario is going to need to perform well to earn any type of job security.

Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Could benefit from expanded rosters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Candelario and fellow third baseman Dawel Lugo could both make the Tigers' Opening Day roster if teams get to keep more than 26 players, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

It is expected that teams will be able to start the year with as many as 30 players. This could allow both Candelario and Lugo to make the final cut, when previously it was thought that one of the two might get waived, as both are out of options. Candelario was thought to be leading the battle for the starting third base job, but a few extra roster spots would likely remove any doubt about him having a role on the team.

Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Homers Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Candelario went 1-for-2 with a home run in Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Pirates.

The home run was the second of the spring for Candelario, who has mostly struggled with a .143 average and .536 OPS. Dawel Lugo finished last season as the Tigers' primary third baseman, and the two are competing for the role in camp, though Candelario could also potentially snag some playing time at first.

Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Competing for third-base gig
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Candelario is expected to compete with Dawel Lugo for the starting job at third base, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

Candelario broke camp as the Tigers' starting third baseman last season, though he spent most of the year shuttling between the majors and minors due to his struggles with the big club (.203/.306/.337 slash line in 386 plate appearances). Unless Candelario shows a marked improvement against big-league pitching, he seems more likely to open the season as a reserve option at the corner infield spots.

Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Out of lineup for season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Candelario is not starting in Sunday's game against the White Sox.

Candelario takes a seat with Ronny Rodriguez starting at third base and John Hicks manning first. Candelario has gotten regular playing time at first with Dawel Lugo taking over the primary role at third, though neither young player has broken out in 2019. The Tigers will be looking for the 25-year-old Candelario to take a big step forward in 2020 to warrant staying in a prominent role.

Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Out of Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Candelario is not in Thursday's lineup against the Twins.

He is 5-for-27 (.185) with one home run over his last 10 games. John Hicks will start at first base and hit sixth.

Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Blasts two-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Candelario went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk Sunday in the Tigers' 6-3 win over the White Sox.

A third baseman for most of his career, Candelario has moved across the diamond late in the season in preparation for a potential full-time role at the position in 2020. Any chance Candelario has at holding down an everyday gig for the entirety of next season will hinge of his performance at the plate, where he's steadily declined the past two years. Though he turned in a solid series against the White Sox, Candelario is slashing just .201/.304/.333 over 372 plate appearances in 2019.

Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Back in Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Candelario (triceps) is starting at first base and hitting fifth Thursday against the Indians.

He appeared off the bench as a defensive replacement Wednesday but did not get an at-bat. Candelario is 7-for-37 (.189) with zero home runs in 12 games this month.

Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Remains out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Candelario (triceps) will sit Wednesday against Cleveland.

Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Scratched from Tuesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Candelario was scratched from the lineup Tuesday against Cleveland after getting hit in the triceps Monday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

The severity of the injury is not yet clear, but he'll miss at least one start. Ronny Rodriguez enters the lineup at first base.

Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Remains on becnch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Candelario will sit again Sunday against the Orioles, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Collects three hits Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Candelario went 3-for-5 with a run scored and three RBI in Tuesday's 12-11 win over the Yankees.

Everyone was hitting for Detroit in this one, as the Tigers rattled off 16 hits as a team. Candelario is batting just .202 this season, but the rebuilding Tigers figure to give the 25-year-old plenty of opportunities down the stretch as they turn their attention to 2020. Candelario has recently picked up more starts at first base with Dawel Lugo emerging as the primary option at third.
