Detroit Tigers Player News: All Positions

News: Cabrera went 2-for-2 with a home run, a walk, two RBI and two runs scored in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Giants.
Impact: Cabrera keeps rolling along this spring, as he now has a strong .324/.422/.622 slash line along with three home runs and 10 RBI across 37 at-bats. The 35-year-old looks like he's fully recovered from the ruptured biceps that cut his 2018 campaign short, and while it'd be unfair to expect Cabrera to return to his MVP-level production from a few years ago, he could still be a solid fantasy asset in 2019 if he stays healthy.
News: After pitching 1.2 scoreless innings in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros, Hardy now has a 5.00 ERA this spring through nine innings.
Impact: It's a pretty small sample for Hardy, who turned in a solid 3.56 ERA for the Tigers across 86 innings in 2018 while working as both a reliever and a starter. The veteran lefty should once again fill a bullpen role to begin 2019.
News: Candelario went 2-for-3 with two home runs and three RBI in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros.
Impact: Candelario hit a two-run bomb in the first inning, then followed that up with a solo shot two innings later. The power outburst boosted the 25-year-old's OPS to .954 this spring. Candelario should get plenty of playing time for the rebuilding Tigers, and fantasy owners would certainly like to see him build on the 19 home runs he hit in 2018.
