Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baddoo is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs.

Baddoo has managed four hits and five walks in his last four games after a brutal 2-for-33 stretch, indicating he's starting to make the necessary adjustments after the league adjusted to him. Robbie Grossman, JaCoby Jones and Nomar Mazara will start in the outfield from left to right.

Tigers' Akil Baddoo: On base four times Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baddoo went 2-for-3 with two walks, a run scored and a stolen base in Saturday's 9-8 extra-inning win over the Cubs.

The early season sensation may be heating up again. Over his last seven games, Baddoo is slashing .294/.458/.353 with three runs, three RBI and his third steal of the season, and his 6:4 BB:K over that stretch is a vast improvement on the 3:33 ratio he managed in his first 23 MLB contests.

Tigers' Akil Baddoo: On bench Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baddoo is not in the lineup Friday against the Cubs.

Baddoo will head to the bench Friday with righty Jake Arrieta taking the mound for Chicago. Robbie Grossman, JaCoby Jones and Nomar Mazara will start from left to right in the outfield Friday for Detroit.

Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Sitting versus lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baddoo is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Royals, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Unsurprisingly, the left-handed Baddoo will take a seat with southpaw Danny Duffy on the bump for Kansas City. JaCoby Jones will fill in for Baddoo in center field.

Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Returns to lineup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baddoo is starting in center field and batting eighth in Sunday's game against the Twins.

Baddoo will return to the lineup after starting Saturday's game on the bench. The 22-year-old got off to a hot start this season but he's fallen into an extended slump the past few weeks. Over his last 15 games, Baddoo is batting just .116 while striking out nearly 46 percent of the time.

Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Takes seat Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baddoo isn't starting Saturday against the Twins.

Baddoo had started in each of the last two games and went 1-for-8 with a double, an RBI, a walk and two strikeouts during that time. Harold Castro will start in center field and bat second.

Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Not starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baddoo isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Red Sox, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Baddoo will be out of the lineup for a second straight game with left-hander Martin Perez starting for Boston. JaCoby Jones will start in center field and bat seventh.

Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Sits amid slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baddoo is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Red Sox.

Most of his recent off days have come against same-handed pitchers, but Baddoo will head to the bench with a righty (Nick Pivetta) on the hill for the opposition. He is hitting .095 with a 56.8 percent strikeout rate over his last 42 at-bats, so the days of him occupying the strong side of a platoon may be coming to an end.

Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Sits against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baddoo isn't starting the first game of Thursday's doubleheader against the White Sox, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Left-hander Carlos Rodon will take the mound for the White Sox in Thursday's matinee, so Baddoo will retreat to the bench. JaCoby Jones will take over in center field and bat ninth.

April 28, 2021 05:28 PM
Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Out against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baddoo is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the White Sox.

The lefty-hitting Baddoo will take a seat against a tough southpaw in Carlos Rodon. JaCoby Jones will spell Baddoo in center field and bat ninth.

Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Takes seat against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baddoo is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Royals, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

After starting in each of the Tigers' last three games, the lefty-hitting Baddoo will take a seat with southpaw Danny Duffy on the hill for Kansas City. Detroit will roll out a starting outfield of Robbie Grossman, JaCoby Jones and Victor Reyes on Sunday.

Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Batting second Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baddoo is starting in left field and batting second in Saturday's game against the Royals.

Baddoo has batted lower in the order so far, but the Tigers will look to jumpstart their offense by moving the 22-year-old up. Baddoo has a strong 1.023 OPS through 15 games, but he's also striking out nearly 41 percent of the time, which isn't too surprising considering he hadn't appeared above the High-A level before this season. He has the talent to produce good games, though there will be frustrating days at the park, too.

Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Records two extra-base hits in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baddoo went 2-for-4 with a double, a triple and an RBI in Thursday's loss to the Pirates.

It was the first multi-hit performance for Baddoo since April 14, and while he did strike out two more times in the contest, he was able to show off his skills with the two extra-base hits. The 22-year-old has struck out a whopping 16 times in his last 33 at-bats, so the growing pains are evident, but Baddoo should continue to provide some fantasy value as long as he's receiving regular playing time.

Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Sitting front end of twin bill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baddoo is out of the lineup for the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Pirates, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Lefty Tyler Anderson is on the bump for Pittsburgh in the first game of the twin bill, so the lefty-hitting Baddoo will cede left field to JaCoby Jones. After Baddoo enjoyed a red-hot start to his big-league career, regression reared its head in Oakland over the weekend. He went 0-for-11 with eight strikeouts in the series against the Athletics, dropping his season average to .263.

Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Not starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baddoo is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Pirates.

Baddoo hit .370 with four homers and 11 RBI in his first nine big-league games, but he's now gone 0-for-11 with eight strikeouts in his last three contests. Victor Reyes starts in center field Tuesday.

Tigers' Akil Baddoo: In a slump after hot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baddoo is just 3-for-19 with 12 strikeouts in his last five games.

In his first seven games of the season, Baddoo went 7-for-19 with three home runs, nine RBI and just four strikeouts. However, the 22-year-old outfielder has struggled to make consistent contact lately, as evidenced by the 12 strikeouts in his last 19 at-bats. Notably, Baddoo has only drawn one walk all season. It's not surprising to see a rookie fall into a slump, and while Baddoo should continue to make some plays with his power and speed, his batting average could continue to lag if he doesn't make some adjustments at the plate.

Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Gets day off Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baddoo isn't starting Saturday's game against the Athletics.

Baddoo will take a seat after he went 0-for-7 with six strikeouts in the last two games. Victor Reyes will shift to center field while JaCoby Jones plays left field Saturday.

Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Homers again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baddoo went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Astros.

Baddoo now has home runs in consecutive games and is up to four long balls this season in just eight games. The 22-year-old has carried over his success from spring training, quickly earning a full-time role with the Tigers. There may be some growing pains ahead for Baddoo, who hadn't appeared in a game above the High-A level before this season, but it certainly looks like Detroit found a keeper with the Rule 5 pick. He should continue to play regularly while he remains hot, and fantasy managers should enjoy the ride.

Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Homers off Greinke
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baddoo went 2-for-3 with a double, a home run and an additional RBI in Monday's win over the Astros.

Make it three homers in seven games for the Rule 5 pick. The latest was a no-doubt, 450-foot shot off Zack Greinke. Baddoo, who also has a steal already this season, has been in the lineup for four of the Tigers' last five games between left field and center.

Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Sitting versus lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baddoo is out of the lineup for Sunday's game in Cleveland.

With southpaw Logan Allen on the bump for Cleveland, the lefty-hitting Baddoo will cede his spot in the outfield to JaCoby Jones in the series finale. Baddoo had started in each of the Tigers' previous three games, going 1-for-8 with a triple, a walk and an RBI.
