  1. Victor Martinez flashing surprising power

    Eric Karabell

    Detroit Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez is quickly becoming one of the more valuable players in fantasy, but my favorite stat on him is this: In an era of ridiculous strikeout totals by hitters, Martinez has actually homered more times than ...

  2. May a defining month for Domonic Brown

    Eric Karabell

    Last May three hitters slugged their way to double-digit home runs, and two of them were MVP candidates Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers and Chris Davis of the Baltimore Orioles. The other was Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Domonic Brown, whose...

  3. Peralta among most unlucky hitters so far

    Eric Karabell

    Perhaps no hitter illustrates how wildly unpredictable Batting Average on Balls in Play (BABIP) can be more than St. Louis Cardinals shortstop Jhonny Peralta. A year ago with the Detroit Tigers, Peralta hit .303 with a .374 BABIP, including a ridicul...

  4. Nick Castellanos nearing eligibility at 3B

    Eric Karabell

    Detroit Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos isn't quite a third baseman in ESPN standard fantasy formats yet, but it should happen soon. For those who keep wondering about the ESPN rules of eligibility, it takes 10 games in-season to add it, 20 fro...

  5. Bits: Iwakuma fantasy MVP among pitchers

    Eric Karabell

    It's tough to argue against Detroit Tigers right-hander Max Scherzer winning the AL Cy Young award. After all, he's the one with the bright and shiny 21-3 record after Wednesday, when he struck out 10 over seven shutout innings against the lowly Minn...

  6. Bits: Cubs' Murphy continues to surprise

    Eric Karabell

    Five players enter Friday having hit eight home runs in August. Chances are, even the most casual baseball fans are well aware of four of them: Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera, Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis, Atlanta Braves o...

  7. Tigers' Torii Hunter caps off torrid July

    Eric Karabell

    Let's hear it for the old guys! Detroit Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter hit his 11th home run Wednesday and doubled twice in a rout of the Washington Nationals, raising his batting average to .316. Hunter, 38, completed a stellar July in which he hit ...

  8. AL Central midpoint report

    Eric Karabell

    We're nearly halfway through the 2013 baseball season, and obviously, we've seen some good, some bad and some Josh Hamilton. This week in the KaraBlog, we'll take a look at each team at the midpoint of the season and discuss what has happened and wha...

  9. Tigers' Hunter, A-Jax are buy-low options

    Eric Karabell

    Before Sunday, the last time once-productive Detroit Tigers outfielders Austin Jackson and Torii Hunter each had multiple hits in the same game was back on May 4. Perhaps that's a bit misleading and unfair, since Jackson came off his month-long disab...

  10. Don't fret over Matt Moore's implosion

    Eric Karabell

    Tampa Bay Rays left-hander Matt Moore entered Tuesday night's game against the scary Detroit Tigers lineup with a pristine 8-0 record and 2.18 ERA, but there was clearly cause for concern with his elevated walk rate, plus the fact won-loss record emp...

  11. Projecting HRs: Who will hit the most?

    Eric Karabell

    It might seem crazy to bet against Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera leading the majors in pretty much whatever he wants to, but when predicting the final home run leaders for 2013, based on what we know so far and what I think will happen, I'm g...

  12. How to replace the injured Austin Jackson

    Eric Karabell

    Detroit Tigers center fielder Austin Jackson had been struggling at the plate for a few weeks, probably because of the sore left hamstring that eventually landed him on the 15-day disabled list Monday afternoon. Of course, that was a few hours too la...

  13. Bits: Jose Valverde set to close for Tigers

    Eric Karabell

    The Detroit Tigers were rained out at home against the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday night, but Jim Leyland's crew still made arguably the biggest news of the fantasy day: by not only signing established but recycled closer Jose Valverde to a on...

    Eric Karabell

    Eric Karabell looks at the fantasy-relevant notes from Tuesday, including the news that recently signed veteran Jose Valverde will be called up to be the Detroit Tigers' closer.

  15. Despite demotion, don't give up on Rondon

    Eric Karabell

    Believe it or not, and after his demotion to Triple-A Toledo late Wednesday it might be a bit hard to believe, but I still think young Detroit Tigers fireballer Bruce Rondon can lead the Tigers in saves. Rondon throws hard but tends to not know where...
