Cameron went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk, a stolen base and two runs scored in Wednesday's 6-2 win over St. Louis.
Cameron put Detroit ahead with a solo shot in the fourth inning. In the eighth, he walked and stole second base before scoring on an Isaac Paredes sacrifice fly. Cameron was quiet when he first got called up, but he's now hit safely in his last five games, going 7-for-20 (.350) with two home runs, six RBI, four runs scored and a pair of stolen bases in that span. The 24-year-old is seeing a part-time role for now, but more success at the plate could earn him a larger share of the workload in center field.
Cameron went 2-for-5 with two RBI in Sunday's extra-innings win over the Angels.
Cameron struck out in his other three at-bats and also left five runners on base, so his effort showed the highs and lows that often come with young players. For the season, the 24-year-old is slashing .233/.258/.467 with seven RBI in eight games. He's also striking out 32.3 percent of the time.
Cameron went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Saturday's 8-3 loss to the Angels.
The 23-year-old outfielder got Detroit on the board with a solo shot in the fifth inning. He added an RBI single in the sixth, although Detroit's rally came up short in the end. Cameron has gone just 5-for-25 in his first seven major-league games, but three of those hits have gone for extra bases (two homers, one double). He figures to see the short side of a platoon with Akil Baddoo in center field.
Cameron is starting in center field and batting sixth in Sunday's game against the White Sox.
Cameron will start for the second straight time to wrap up the weekend series, and he also homered off the bench in Friday's game. The 24-year-old has a chance to carve out a bigger role in Detroit with Derek Hill (shoulder) on the injured list and JaCoby Jones optioned to Triple-A Toledo. Akil Baddoo will also be in the mix for outfield playing time, but he is out of the lineup Sunday.
Cameron went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run Friday against the White Sox that tied the game in the bottom of the ninth inning.
He took closer Liam Hendriks deep to the opposite field for his first career home run in the majors. Cameron has one home run and one steal in six plate appearances after putting up impressive numbers at Triple-A. Particularly noteworthy is the fact he logged a 17.6 percent strikeout rate while hitting .338/.400/.558 with two home runs and three steals in 18 games for the Mud Hens. If he continues to perform capably, there should be playing time available, and his combination of power and speed could move the needle in deeper roto leagues.
The Tigers recalled Cameron from Triple-A Toledo ahead of Thursday's game against the Mariners. He'll start in center field and bat sixth in his 2021 big-league debut, according to Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Cameron will join the active roster as a replacement for injured outfielder Derek Hill (shoulder) after contributing a .338/.400/.558 slash line with nine extra-base hits and three stolen bases in 85 plate appearances at Triple-A this season. In his first taste of the big leagues in 2020, Cameron struggled to make consistent contact (32.2 percent strikeout rate) and submitted a lowly .220 on-base average, but the Tigers are hoping his latest trip to the majors goes more smoothly. Though he'll draw into the lineup Thursday against Mariners lefty Justus Sheffield, the right-handed-hitting Cameron could have to settle for short-side platoon duty in center field with the lefty-hitting Akil Baddoo while Hill is on the mend.
Cameron (wrist) was activated from the injured list and started in center field Wednesday for Triple-A Toledo, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
The 24-year-old was sidelined for the start of the minor-league season by a fractured right wrist, but he's in the lineup for the Mud Hens on Wednesday. Cameron made his big-league debut with Detroit last season and had a .193/.220/.263 slash line in 17 games.
Cameron was placed on Triple-A Toledo's 7-day injured list Tuesday with a fractured right wrist, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Cameron may have picked up the injury while playing at the Tigers' alternate training site over the past few weeks after he failed to crack the Opening Day roster. A formal target date for Cameron's return to game action hasn't been established, but Jason Beck of MLB.com relays that the Tigers anticipate the outfielder will be ready to play in a couple of weeks.
Cameron was optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Friday.
The 24-year-old missed the first couple weeks of camp with an elbow injury and was unable to crack the Opening Day roster. Cameron made his big-league debut for the Tigers last season and posted a .193/.220/.263 slash line in 59 plate appearances, and he's a strong bet to return to the majors at some point in 2021.
Cameron (elbow) is in the lineup for Saturday's spring game against the Phillies, according to Chris McCosky of The Detroit News.
Cameron has been brought along slowly this spring due to the elbow injury he suffered during Winter League, but he took his first two at-bats of the spring Friday and will be in the lineup for the first time a day later. Cameron will be eased into action as the designated hitter, but it should not be long before he is back in his customary spot in the outfield.
Cameron (elbow) will take live batting practice Wednesday, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.
Cameron has dealt with a right elbow issue since before camp, but he's nearing his spring debut. If all goes well during his live batting practice, he's scheduled to take at-bats as the designated hitter Friday before starting Saturday's game in that role. Although the 24-year-old hasn't been cleared for outfield work, he appears to be progressing well in his recovery.
Cameron (elbow) will take live batting practice next week and could get into a game as a designated hitter by the end of the week, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Cameron has been dealing with a right elbow issue since before camp began. While he's expected to start hitting soon, he's not yet cleared to play the outfield. Cameron was already facing a potentially difficult battle to claim an Opening Day roster spot after posting a .483 OPS in his 17-game debut last season, and the lost practice time this spring can't help his chances even if he's fully cleared to play soon.
Cameron (elbow) was tracking pitches but not swinging Wednesday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Cameron has been limited to begin spring training due to a right elbow injury he sustained while playing in Puerto Rico during the offseason. The 24-year-old hasn't yet resumed a full throwing program, but manager AJ Hinch was hopeful he'd be able to take batting practice within the coming days. Cameron will likely be back to full speed in time for Opening Day, but he could have to settle for a backup role in the outfield if he doesn't get enough opportunities during spring training.
Tigers manager AJ Hinch said Sunday that Cameron remains limited due to the right elbow injury he sustained while playing in Puerto Rico during the offseason, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Hinch noted that while Cameron is taking part in team meetings along with batting and running drills, the 24-year-old has not yet been cleared to resume a full throwing program. Cameron isn't believed to have experienced any setbacks in his recovery from the injury, so the Tigers are seemingly just ramping him up gradually in the early stages of spring training. Cameron should be back to full health by Opening Day, but the elbow injury may be enough to keep him from the outside looking in for the Tigers' starting center field job.
Cameron, who left the Puerto Rican Winter League with an arm injury, appears healthy and is expected to be ready for spring training, the Detroit Free Press reports.
He'll fight for at-bats in the Tigers outfield, and while he isn't guaranteed anything, it's not like JaCoby Jones, Victor Reyes and Robbie Grossman are insurmountable obstacles, either.
Cameron went to Florida to have his sore right arm examined Monday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Cameron had been playing in the Puerto Rican Winter League but had only appeared in two games (going hitless in both) before the arm troubles popped up. Whether or not the issue will affect him heading into the 2021 season remains to be seen.
Cameron went 2-for-4 with two doubles and a run scored in Tuesday's 5-4, 10-inning loss to the Twins.
Batting ninth, Cameron provided some punch from the bottom of the order. The 23-year-old rookie is still batting just .154, though he does now have two multi-hit performances across his last three starts, and he should continue to get regular playing time in the final week of the season.
Cameron went 2-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI in Saturday's 5-2 win over Cleveland.
Cameron came into the contest batting just .071 on the season, so it was nice to see the 23-year-old contribute two hits for the first time in his MLB career. He should continue to see playing time down the stretch as the Tigers' playoff chances fade and they look toward the 2021 season.
Cameron is starting in right field and batting ninth in Saturday's game against Cleveland.
Cameron was on the bench for two of the last three contests but will return to the lineup Saturday. The youngster is struggling in his first taste of the majors, as he's gone just 2-for-28 with 11 strikeouts through his first nine games, but the Tigers figure to be patient with the 23-year-old as they plan for 2021 and beyond.
Cameron is not in the lineup Friday against the Indians, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Cameron is 1-for-27 through his first eight big-league appearances and will head to the bench for the second time in the past three games. Harold Castro starts in right field for the Tigers.
