Tigers' Brandon Dixon: Sitting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dixon is not in the lineup Thursday against Cleveland.

Dixon was supposed to get the day off Wednesday but was added to the lineup when Niko Goodrum was scratched with a bruised finger. Goodrum is back and starting at first base Thursday.

Tigers' Brandon Dixon: Joins lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dixon is starting at first base and hitting seventh Wednesday against the Indians, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Dixon was originally slated to get the day off, but an injury to Niko Goodrum (finger) during batting practice forced the first baseman into action. Through nine games this month, Dixon is slashing .207/.303/.379 with one home run and five RBI.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tigers' Brandon Dixon: Bows out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Dixon started all three of the Tigers' games in Kansas City over the weekend, going 3-for-10 with a pair of doubles, a walk, three RBI and two runs. The 27-year-old looks locked in as Detroit's primary first baseman, but he'll take a seat in the series opener in Cleveland while Niko Goodrum mans the position.

Tigers' Brandon Dixon: Launches 12th home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dixon went 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run home run in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Red Sox.

Dixon hit his 12th home run of the season in the eighth inning off Boston reliever Ryan Brasier. The 27-year-old also struck out two more times, and his K rate is sitting at 31 percent heading into the All-Star break. Dixon should continue to offer decent power the rest of the way, but he could struggle with his batting average due to all the swings and misses.

Tigers' Brandon Dixon: Bounces back with two hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dixon went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in Friday's 9-6 loss to the Red Sox.

Dixon sat out Thursday after a rough 0-for-9 performance across both games of Wednesday's doubleheader. He responded from the quick breather by posting his first multi-hit game since June 13. Dixon is now slashing .240/.269/.459 this season but just .103/.167/.256 over his past 10 games.

Tigers' Brandon Dixon: Sitting after rough doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dixon is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the White Sox, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Manager Ron Gardenhire will give Dixon a day to clear his head after the 27-year-old started both ends of Wednesday's doubleheader, going 0-for-9 with three strikeouts. Dixon still remains locked in as the Tigers' everyday first baseman, but he'll cede those duties to Niko Goodrum in the series finale.

Tigers' Brandon Dixon: Struggles in doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dixon went 0-or-9 with three strikeouts across both games of a doubleheader Wednesday against the White Sox.

A small silver lining is that Dixon scored a run in both games, but 0-for-9 is still a tough day at the ballpark. It continues a tough stretch for the 27-year-old, who is slashing .079/.167/.316 across his past 10 games. Some regression was expected for Dixon, as his hot start with the Tigers was fueled by a BABIP that approached .400.

June 27, 2019 10:28 PM
Tigers' Brandon Dixon: Records 10th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dixon allowed 1-for-4 with a solo home run Wednesday against the Rangers.

Dixon accounted for the Tigers' only offense on the evening, taking Mike Minor deep in the fourth inning. It was his 10th homer of the season, and third in his past 10 games. Though he's striking out at a 31 percent clip, Dixon has managed a solid .488 slugging percentage and .231 ISO through 167 plate appearances.

Tigers' Brandon Dixon: Pops ninth home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dixon went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Friday's 7-6 loss to Cleveland.

Dixon hit his ninth home run of the season off Trevor Bauer in the second inning. The 27-year-old has been a nice find for Detroit, as he's posting a solid .812 OPS through 144 at-bats and has settled into an everyday role.

Tigers' Brandon Dixon: Goes deep in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dixon went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 8-7 loss to the Pirates.

Dixon smacked his eighth home run of the season as part of a five-run third inning. The 27-year-old continues to excel, though his .352 BABIP coming into Wednesday suggests that his current .277 batting average could regress.

Tigers' Brandon Dixon: Blasts seventh home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dixon went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 13-4 loss to Cleveland.

Miguel Cabrera and Dixon went back-to-back in the second inning to make it 2-2, but Detroit's offense couldn't keep up from there. Dixon has been a pleasant surprise for the Tigers so far this season, as he's slashing .288/.305/.512 with seven home runs in 40 games. He slashed .178/.218/.356 with five home runs in 74 games with the Reds last year.

Tigers' Brandon Dixon: Goes deep in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dixon went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Royals.

Dixon also struck out twice, and he's now whiffing 33.9 percent of the time this season. While the 27-year-old does have a nice .289/.305/.509 slash line with six home runs, his high strikeout rate combined with a high BABIP (.397 entering Tuesday) suggest that some regression could be coming.

June 6, 2019 10:40 PM
Tigers' Brandon Dixon: Records two hits in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dixon went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Thursday's 6-1 loss to the Rays.

Dixon entered the game on a mini 1-for-13 slump over his past three contests, but he snapped out of the funk and raised his batting average to .296 with the two hits. A high BABIP is fueling a lot of Dixon's success, so some regression is likely coming, but he figures to hold onto a regular role with the Tigers as long as he keeps hitting.

Tigers' Brandon Dixon: Keeps hitting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dixon went 2-for-4 with a double, a run scored and an RBI in Saturday's 10-5 loss to the Braves.

Dixon has taken his opportunity with the Tigers and run with it, as he's now slashing a robust .321/.345/.593 across 81 at-bats and has started the past six games. However, his 38.1 percent strikeout rate and .477 BABIP suggest that some regression could be in order for the 27-year-old, who slashed just .178/.218/.356 in 118 at-bats last season.

Tigers' Brandon Dixon: Provides game-winning homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dixon went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run Wednesday against the Orioles.

Dixon took Branden Kline deep in the ninth inning to give the Tigers a 4-2 victory. It was his fifth home run of the season and second in his past five games. He's also put together a seven-game hitting streak, raising his average to a solid .306 mark across 75 plate appearances. Dixon has appeared mostly at first base this season, though the Tigers have recently given him playing time in left field and third base, indicating that they want to find Dixon more consistent playing time.

Tigers' Brandon Dixon: Scores twice in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dixon went 1-for-3 with a walk, a double and two runs scored in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Orioles.

Making his first start of the season at third base, Dixon continued to produce at the plate. The 27-year-old is now slashing .313/.343/.578 through 64 at-bats, and his solid play should lead to more playing time on a Detroit team that has been struggling to score runs consistently.

May 27, 2019 12:00 PM
Tigers' Brandon Dixon: Picks up start Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dixon is starting at third base and batting sixth in Monday's game against the Orioles.

Dixon will be making his first start of the season at third base, as he's primarily played on the other side of the diamond. The 27-year-old is slashing a solid .311/.333/.574 with four home runs and 14 RBI through 24 games.

Tigers' Brandon Dixon: Two extra-base hits in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dixon went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a double and an additional run Sunday in the Tigers' 5-3 win over the Twins.

Dixon made the most of the three straight starts he collected over the weekend, rapping out three extra-base hits (including a pair of home runs) and driving in three. While his positional versatility gives him multiple avenues to at-bats in Detroit, Dixon doesn't have a line on a full-time role just yet and is probably only worthy of consideration in AL-only formats at this time.

May 11, 2019 08:00 PM
Tigers' Brandon Dixon: Homers in afternoon game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dixon went 2-for-4 with a homer in the afternoon portion of Saturday's doubleheader against the Twins.

Dixon's homer, his second of the season, was a two-out solo shot in the second inning off Michael Pineda. He's now hitting .294/.314/.529 in 35 plate appearances but is striking out 42.9 percent of the time.
