Tigers' Daz Cameron: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cameron was optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

This move was inevitable, as Cameron has been unable to master Triple-A over the past two seasons. The Tigers will hope he fares better in his age-23 season, and as a member of the 40-man roster, he will probably make his big-league debut this summer unless he is awful for the Mud Hens.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Added to 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cameron was added to the Tigers' 40-man roster Wednesday, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

The 22-year-old hit .214/.330/.377 with 13 home runs and 17 stolen bases over 120 games with Triple-A Toledo last season. While he's shown above-average speed ability, Cameron will likely have to improve his batting average and strikeout rate before he can become a viable major-league outfielder. His addition to the 40-man roster protects him from the Rule 5 draft.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Shakes off illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cameron (illness) started in center field and went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts Tuesday in Triple-A Toledo's 4-1 loss to Columbus.

Cameron's inclusion in the Toledo lineup suggests he's shaken the ailment that had kept him idle for the previous three days. The 22-year-old is slashing just .229/.320/.408 and has posted an 8-for-15 success rate on stolen-base attempts through 70 games at Triple-A this season, effectively shutting down any talk of an impending promotion to the big leagues.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Dealing with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cameron has been away from the team for two days due to illness and remains out of the starting lineup for Monday's Triple-A game, Brian Buckey of The Toledo Blade reports.

This doesn't appear to be a serious issue for Cameron, who returned to the team Monday despite being held out of the starting nine. He'll be considered day-to-day moving forward.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Off to hot start at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cameron is slashing .296/.412/.481 through his first 27 at-bats of the season at Triple-A Toledo with a home run and a stolen base.

Cameron had a nice spring training with a .357/.438/.786 line across 16 games in big-league camp, and he's carried over that success into the start of his Triple-A season. After advancing from High-A to Triple-A during a strong 2018 campaign, the 22-year-old outfielder could be ready to make his MLB debut sometime this summer if he keeps up this type of performance.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Launches grand slam Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cameron went 1-for-2 with a grand slam in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Blue Jays.

Cameron was reassigned to minor-league camp 10 days ago, but he continued to make a good impression Sunday and now has a .357/.438/.786 slash line through 28 spring at-bats. The 22-year-old advanced from High-A to Triple-A in a productive 2018 campaign, and he could make his MLB debut at some point this season, as current Detroit center field options JaCoby Jones and Mikie Mahtook aren't the most imposing roadblocks.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Time with big club ends
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers reassigned Cameron to their minor-league camp Thursday.

Cameron's long-shot bid for the Tigers' Opening Day roster thus comes to an end, though the highly regarded outfield prospect looks like a good bet to earn a callup to the big leagues at some point this summer. The 22-year-old tore it up at High-A Lakeland and Double-A Erie last season to earn a late promotion to Triple-A Toledo, where he only managed a .211/.246/.316 batting line across 62 plate appearances. He should be better equipped to find more success in his second taste of the International League.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Earns invite to spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cameron was invited to the Tigers' big-league camp Tuesday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Cameron, one of the team's top prospects, will get an opportunity to showcase his skills in front of the Tigers' brass during spring training. The 22-year-old climbed from High-A Lakeland to Triple-A Toledo in 2018, hitting a combined .264/.343/.406 with eight homers and 24 stolen bases in 126 games. While Cameron figures to open the 2019 campaign back at Triple-A, he should get the call sometime over the summer if he holds his own at the highest level of the minors.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Heads to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cameron was moved up to Triple-A Toledo on Friday.

The promotion is the second one of the season for the 21-year-old outfielder, acquired last season as part of the the Justin Verlander trade. The call-up was well-earned, as he hit .285/.367/.470 with five homers and 12 steals in 53 games for Double-A Erie, even better numbers than he posted for High-A Lakeland at the beginning of the year. He also cut his strikeout rate from 28.0 percent to 23.5 percent, while keeping a high walk rate (11.1 percent). He'll get the chance to keep the momentum going at the highest level of the minors and has a good shot to reach the big leagues at some point in 2019.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Records second four-hit outing of 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cameron went 4-for-6 with three doubles, four RBI and four runs for Double-A Erie in its 18-1 win over Portland on Wednesday.

The four-hit night was Cameron's second of the season and first since his June 18 promotion from High-A Lakeland. The 21-year-old earned the callup after posting a respectable enough 109 wRC+ at Erie, but he's bolstered his outlook in dynasty formats by developing into one of the best hitters in the Eastern League since arriving on the circuit. Through 46 games with Erie, the outfielder has slashed .316/.393/.523 with 21 extra-base hits while going 12-for-17 on stolen-base attempts. A .400 BABIP has certainly aided Cameron's success, but he has also created his own good fortune by reducing his strikeout rate from 28 percent in the Florida State League to 22.4 percent at Double-A.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Promoted to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cameron was promoted to Double-A Erie on Monday.

The 21-year-old outfielder, who was acquired in the Justin Verlander trade with Houston, posted a .259/.346/.370 slash line with 10 steals in 58 games with High-A Lakeland this season. Cameron will now get his first taste of Double-A competition as he continues his way up the ladder for a Tigers organization in need of some dynamic outfielders. Leonys Martin has been solid in center field, but he's 30 years old and probably not a long-term piece, while JaCoby Jones (.228/.274/.388) hasn't provided much from left field.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Slugs two homers Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cameron went 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs for High-A Lakeland in its 8-4 win over Palm Beach on Wednesday.

Cameron displayed decent pop with 51 extra-base hits over stints with two different Low-A affiliates in 2017, but his power contributions have been more rare as he has made the transition to the Florida State League. Prior to his two-homer outburst Wednesday, the 21-year-old went deep just once in his first 162 plate appearances of the season. On a more encouraging note, Cameron has at least continued to draw walks at a steady rate (12.2 BB%), keeping his on-base percentage at a respectable .373 for the campaign.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Hits in five straight games to begin season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cameron has a single hit in each of his five games so far this season with High-A Lakeland, to go along with three walks, two runs, an RBI and a steal.

The 21-year-old is still looking for his first multi-hit performance, but it's nice to see him hit consistently. Cameron, the son of former MLB player Mike Cameron and part of the Tigers' return in last summer's Justin Verlander trade, is in his first year at the High-A level. The team will likely want to see him perform well at Lakeland for a while before moving him up the organizational ladder.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Will start season at High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cameron will begin his season at High-A Lakeland, Jonathan Mayo of MLB.com reports.

A part of the return for Justin Verlander, Cameron reported to Low-A West Michigan last summer after the trade. He only got in 11 plate appearances before the end of year, but he'll now have a full season in the organization. Cameron isn't an elite prospect, but he could be a solid MLB contributor in a few seasons if he continues to develop as expected.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Adjusting quickly to new organization
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cameron said the adjustment to his new Low-A West Michigan team has been "smooth," Peter J. Wallner of MLive.com reports.

Cameron was part of the package Houston sent the Tigers for Justin Verlander. The 20-year-old stayed at the same level he was at in the Houston organization, but he did join West Michigan right as the playoffs were starting. "He's been just fine," West Michigan manager Mike Rabelo said of Cameron's adjustment. "He can play baseball anywhere. Midwest League, South Atlantic League, Quad Cities, West Michigan. This kid is going to be a player." Cameron went 2-for-8 in three regular season games with the Whitecaps, and he's collected a hit in each of their two playoff games.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Heading to Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cameron was traded to the Tigers on Thursday along with Franklin Perez and Jake Rogers in exchange for Justin Verlander, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Cameron, 20, spent the season at Low-A Quad Cities where he slashed .217/.347/.467 with 14 home runs and 73 RBI along with 32 steals. He's an intriguing prospect who bolsters a Tigers farm system that was in need of retooling.

Astros' Daz Cameron: Scorching of late at Low-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cameron, 20, is hitting .474 with two home runs, eight RBI and four steals over his last 10 games for Low-A Quad Cities.

Cameron's recent surge brings his slash line up to .266/.339/.462. The toolsy outfielder has 13 home runs and 27 steals this season, and he has also cut down on his strikeout rate in 2017. He's still a few years away from making an impact in the big leagues, but Cameron is certainly showing some promise in the Astros organization.

Astros' Daz Cameron: Smacks two doubles Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cameron went 2-for-4 with a run scored and two doubles for Low-A Quad Cities on Tuesday.

Cameron is healthy again after missing a signficant portion of the 2016 season due to a broken finger. He's leading off for the River Bandits and doing some damage atop the order, stroking four extra-base hits (two homers) with three stolen bases in six games.

Astros' Daz Cameron: Will miss rest of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cameron (finger) will miss the rest of the season after breaking his left pointer finger during Wednesday's game with short-season Tri City, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Cameron was hit by a pitch in the first inning of Wednesday's game and immediately exited the contest. The 19-year-old was the 37th overall pick in the 2015 draft, and had been batting .278/.352/.418 during 19 games with Tri-City after struggling during an initial assignment with Low-A Quad Cities. Cameron will be ready for spring training next year after spending the rest of this season recovering from this injury.

Astros' Daz Cameron: Sent to extended spring training to work on swing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cameron, 19, was recently sent to extended spring training to work on his swing after hitting just .143 with 33 strikeouts in 21 games with Low-A Quad Cities, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Cameron, the 37th overall pick of the 2015 draft, will likely continue to work in Florida until after the upcoming draft in June. He's then likely to report to a short-season affiliate once their seasons open.
