    News

    Lugo is not starting Friday against the White Sox.

    Impact

    Lugo owns a poor .132/.190/.316 slash line over his last 10 games, though he does at least have two homers over that stretch. Ronny Rodriguez starts at third base Friday.

    News

    Lugo went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 7-2 loss against Cleveland.

    Impact

    Lugo hit his sixth home run of the season and third this month. The 24-year-old has mostly struggled this year with a .238/.268/.381 slash line, though the rebuilding Tigers have been patient with Lugo and given him plenty of playing time recently.

    News

    Lugo is not starting Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Yankees, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Impact

    Lugo will head to the bench for the second half of Thursday's twin bill after going 1-for-4 with a walk and a two-run homer in Game 1. Jeimer Candelario is covering third base in his place in Game 2.

    News

    Lugo went 3-for-5 with a two-RBI single and a run scored in Friday's 5-4 extra-innings win over the Athletics.

    Impact

    Lugo's two-run single in the eighth provided the Tigers with the tying run. In the 11th, Lugo got aboard with a single and came around to score the go-ahead run on a Willi Castro double. Lugo has hit safely in five of six games in September, going 8-for-24 with four RBI and five runs scored in that span. For the year, the third baseman is hitting .246/.271/.374 with four homers, 21 RBI and 20 runs scored across 203 at-bats.

    News

    Lugo went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored in Thursday's 6-4 win over the Royals.

    Impact

    Lugo is getting regular playing time at third base, and while his .237/.263/.369 slash line for the year is nothing impressive, the 24-year-old has been better lately. Over his past 14 games, Lugo is batting .321 with three home runs. He should continue to get a look with the rebuilding Tigers the rest of this season.
