Tigers' Daz Cameron: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cameron was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right toe sprain Wednesday, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Cameron sustained a toe injury prior to Monday's game against the Rangers, and the issue will keep him sidelined until after the All-Star break. Akil Baddoo should serve as the primary center fielder in Cameron's absence, while Niko Goodrum (finger) was reinstated from the 10-day IL in a corresponding move.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: May require time on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cameron (toe) will be unavailable Tuesday and Wednesday, and he may be placed on the injured list, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Even if Cameron's sprained toe, which he suffered pregame Monday, isn't too severe, he could move to the IL and return after the All-Star break. The 24-year-old has gone 5-for-28 in his last 10 games. If Cameron does end up on the IL, Akil Baddoo figures to start every game for the Tigers leading up to the break.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Scratched with sprained toe
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cameron was scratched from Monday's lineup against the Rangers with a sprained great right toe.

The 24-year-old was slated to start in center field and bat sixth, but he'll now be held out due to a toe sprain. According to Chris McCosky of The Detroit News, Cameron suffered the injury pregame when he collided with the outfield wall while tracking flyballs. He should be considered day-to-day as the injury is evaluated.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Posts fourth steal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cameron went 1-for-3 with a walk, a stolen base and a run scored in Sunday's 6-5 win over the White Sox.

Cameron was limited to a bench role Saturday, but he was able to snap an 0-for-12 skid in his return to the starting nine Sunday. The outfielder's recent slump has dropped his slash line to .207/.270/.397 through 63 plate appearances. He's a perfect 4-for-4 in stolen base attempts with three home runs, nine RBI and 10 runs scored in 18 games, but he'll need to be more consistent at the plate to avoid losing playing time in Detroit's outfield.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Hits bench Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cameron is not starting Saturday's game against the White Sox.

Despite Chicago starting southpaw Dallas Keuchel, Detroit will go with left-handed bat Akil Baddoo in center field, which pushes Cameron to the bench after two straight starts. Baddoo has five hits in his last 10 at-bats, so the team likely just wants to keep his hot bat in the lineup. Cameron should work his way back into the starting nine soon, potentially alongside Baddoo, as manager A.J. Hinch has been willing to play the two young outfielders together rather than in a strict platoon.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Starting again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cameron is starting in right field and batting sixth in Sunday's game against the Astros.

Akil Baddoo is starting in center field and batting first, but the Tigers seem to be getting more comfortable with starting both young outfielders after they worked in a platoon initially. That makes the Detroit outfield a bit more crowded, as Nomar Mazara, Robbie Grossman and Eric Haase are also jockeying for playing time. With the 33-44 Tigers looking more toward the future, the 24-year-old Cameron will likely continue to receive ample opportunities the rest of the season.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Starting against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cameron is starting in center field and batting fifth in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Astros.

With Framber Valdez on the bump for Houston, Cameron gets the nod in center with Akil Baddoo hitting the bench. The two outfielders have formed a platoon lately, though they did both start in the team's last game Thursday. Cameron should continue to see regular playing time for the Tigers, but Baddoo may force him out of the lineup against right-handed starters, unless Detroit continues to start them both.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Good effort in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cameron went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, an RBI and a run scored in Thursday's loss to the Astros.

Cameron has only appeared in 10 games for the Tigers but he's been good when given a chance, as he now has a .917 OPS and nine RBI. While the team has been platooning Cameron and Akil Baddoo in center field, they both started in Thursday's game. The 32-43 Tigers figure to give plenty of opportunities to young players the rest of the way, so Cameron should have the chance to build on his good start.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Homers, steals base in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Records two RBI in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Pops second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Starting again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Blasts first career HR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Gets call to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Back in action Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Out with fractured wrist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

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

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.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Making first start this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Taking swings Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Nearly ready to hit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
