Reyes will sit Saturday in Kansas City.
Reyes will hit the bench for the first time in over a month. Derek Hill will start in center field in his absence.
Reyes went 2-for-4 with an RBI, a walk and a stolen base in a 5-2 win over the Indians on Saturday.
In addition to his stolen base, he was also caught stealing once. Reyes is hitting .290 through 176 at-bats in 2020.
Reyes went a combined 4-for-7 with a run scored over both games of Thursday's doubleheader against the Cardinals.
Hitting leadoff and playing center field in both contests, Reyes went 3-for-4 in the nightcap and scored the tying run as part of a five-run comeback in the seventh inning during a 6-3 win. The 25-year-old is slashing .315/.346/.473 through 42 games with four homers, six steals, 13 RBI and 26 runs.
Reyes went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Twins.
Reyes started the game off with a home run against Kenta Maeda, and it was one of just two hits the Tigers recorded against Minnesota's starter across six innings. The 25-year-old outfielder has been swinging a hot bat, as Saturday's two-hit performance raised his average to a robust .312 to go along with an .834 OPS.
Reyes went a combined 3-for-7 with a run scored in Friday's doubleheader against the Twins.
Reyes boosted his average above .300 with the productive day, as the 25-year-old outfielder is now batting .306 this season. He had a bit of a breakout last year when he batted .304 across 69 games, and Reyes is following that up with another strong campaign so far. Reyes should also be locked into regular playing time moving forward with JaCoby Jones (hand) likely out for the rest of the season and Cameron Maybin now playing for the Cubs.
Reyes went 4-for-6 with a double, a home run, five RBI and two runs scored Tuesday against the Brewers.
Reyes powered the Tigers' offense, delivering his third home run of the season in the sixth inning. Two frames later, he added a two-RBI double, and he's now driven in 11 runs to this point in the campaign. With the performance, Reyes now has at least one hit in nine of his last 10 starts, also chipping in nine runs scored in that span. Overall, he's hitting .303/.333/.477 across 114 plate appearances.
Reyes went 4-for-8 with a run scored between both ends of Saturday's doubleheader sweep of the Twins.
Since all four of Reyes' base knocks came in the early contest, he saw his hit streak end at seven after his 0-for-4 showing in the nightcap. Even so, with Reyes now slashing .308/.325/.462 over his last 10 games, he's seemingly solidified himself as the Tigers' leadoff man against both right- and left-handed pitching. He'll man right field and slot in at the top of the order in Sunday's series finale.
Reyes is starting in left field and batting first in Sunday's game against Cleveland.
Reyes has been batting near the top of the order recently, and this will be his second straight game leading off. His .312 on-base percentage is nothing incredible, but with Detroit lacking other options, he could get more opportunities in the spot. Reyes does offer a little speed on the bases, as he has five steals so far in 2020 and had nine in 69 games a season ago.
Reyes went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Friday's 10-5 win over Cleveland.
Reyes was one of three Detroit players to go deep in the big win, which snapped a 20-game losing streak to Cleveland. The 25-year-old outfielder is now slashing a respectable .275/.315/.420 with two home runs in 23 games, and with Christin Stewart and Cameron Maybin both struggling, Reyes could earn more playing time in the corner outfield spots for the Tigers.
Reyes is starting in left field and batting second in Friday's game against Cleveland.
Christin Stewart heads to the bench, with Reyes, JaCoby Jones and Jorge Bonifacio starting across the Detroit outfield. Reyes is slashing .266/.309/.375 so far this season
Reyes is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the White Sox.
Cameron Maybin will swap in for Reyes after the latter started in two of the first three games of the series. Reyes is a perfect 5-for-5 on stolen-base attempts this season, but he's largely been a non-entity at the plate with a .684 OPS in 68 plate appearances.
Reyes went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and three strikeouts in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the White Sox.
Reyes got aboard with a two-out single in the fourth and quickly stole second base, but he didn't come around to score. It was his fifth steal of the season. The outfielder is slashing .266/.309/.375 with a homer, five RBI and 11 runs scored through 21 games.
Reyes is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Indians, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Reyes will head to the bench after making 11 consecutive starts, during which he slashed .250/.302/.350 with eight runs, two RBI and three stolen bases. With JaCoby Jones locked in as Detroit's everyday center fielder and Christin Stewart's lineup spot against right-handed pitching at least temporarily secure, Reyes will likely have to battle recently-activated Cameron Maybin (quadriceps) for the final starting spot in the outfield in most games. Both Reyes and Maybin will take a seat in the series finale, however, as Harold Castro gets a rare start in right field.
Reyes went 2-for-4 with a double in Tuesday's 8-4 loss to the White Sox.
With a southpaw (Gio Gonzalez) on the hill for Chicago, Reyes moved from the bottom half of the lineup to the No. 2 spot in the order while the lefty-hitting Christin Stewart received the day off. Reyes should continue to benefit from more favorable lineup assignments versus lefties, but he'll at least remain a fixture in the starting nine versus righties. He'll man right field and hit sixth Wednesday in the series finale, marking Reyes' ninth consecutive start.
Reyes went 1-for-4 with two runs scored and a stolen base in Friday's 7-2 win over the Reds.
Reyes singled and scored in the seventh inning and swiped his second bag after reaching on an error in the ninth. The 25-year-old appears primed for increased run in the Tigers' outfield with Cameron Maybin (quad) landing on the injured list. Reyes already has a homer in addition to the two steals and has struck out just once in 17 plate appearances.
Reyes went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Monday's loss to the Royals.
Reyes was set to start in center field Monday, but he shifted over to left when Christin Stewart was a late scratch, with JaCoby Jones entering the fold in center. It's unclear if Stewart is injured, but if he does miss any time, Reyes would be in line for increased playing time. The 25-year-old slashed .304/.336/.431 with nine stolen bases in 69 games last year, so there's some reason for optimism with Reyes if he nabs an everyday role.
Reyes is starting in right field and batting seventh in Sunday's game against the Reds.
It will be the first start of the season for Reyes, who appeared as a pinch hitter Saturday. Through three games, Cameron Maybin has two starts in right field versus one for Reyes, though the latter is the younger player and could earn more playing time later in the season if the rebuilding Tigers fall out of contention.
Tigers hitting coach Joe Vavra said that Reyes will join the team for Thursday's summer-camp workout, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Reyes had missed the Tigers' first six workouts of camp due to an unspecified reason, but he's apparently arrived in Detroit now. He'll look to lock down an everyday role heading into Opening Day, though he'll continue to face competition from Christin Stewart, who had been pushing him for the top job in left field during spring training. Should Reyes find himself atop the depth chart to begin the season, he could have some sneaky value after batting .304 and stealing nine bases in just under 300 plate appearances in 2019.
Reyes and Christin Stewart will likely compete for playing time in left field when the regular season is able to begin, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Fenech projects that JaCoby Jones will start in center and offseason acquisition Cameron Maybin will likely start in right. That leaves Reyes and Stewart to jockey for playing time in left. Reyes outperformed Stewart last season and in spring training, so he might have the leg up at this point, though playing time could be fluid for both players all season unless one of them runs away with the role.
Reyes slashed an impressive .357/.367/.464 in 12 Grapefruit League games before MLB suspended play.
Reyes looked good in 69 games with the Tigers last season, slashing .304/.336/.431 and stealing nine bases. The 25-year-old's MLB roster spot is secure heading into 2020, but he is likely to compete with Christin Stewart, JaCoby Jones and Cameron Maybin for playing time. At this point, it looks like Reyes will start in right while Maybin will serve as a veteran fourth outfielder and possibly spell Stewart in left field against left-handed starters. If Reyes ends up starting most games, he could be a decent fantasy outfielder who offers a mix of power and speed.
