Joey Wentz To Be Shut Down For 10 Days

Detroit Tigers general manager Al Avila said that an MRI exam on pitcher Joey Wentz (forearm) showed no structural damage to his arm, but he'll be shut down for around 10 days. The 22-year-old left-hander was traded from the Braves last season. He was much better for Double-A Erie in five starts to finish the year, posting a 2.10 ERA and 0.94 WHIP with a 13.0 K/9. Ranked as the team's No. 10 prospect to close out 2019, Wentz could be a mid-rotation starter for the Tigers by in a year or two because of his size and feel for pitching. For now, he's just one to watch in dynasty/keeper leagues.

Tigers Nearing A Deal With Cameron Maybin

Free-agent outfielderCameron Maybin is reportedly nearing a deal with the Detroit Tigers. Maybin previously spent the 2007 and 2016 seasons with the Tigers. In his limited action with the Yankees last season, Maybin was a solid all-around producer. He had 11 home runs, 32 RBI and nine stolen bases with .285 batting average and a .364 on-base percentage across 82 games. He is an immediate upgrade on a Tigers roster that lacks offensive firepower. He could be a solid late-round addition if you are looking for some depth at outfielder.

Cameron Maybin Returns To Tigers

The Detroit Tigers agreed to a one-year major league deal with outfielder Cameron Maybin on Wednesday. The deal is for $1.5 million with the chance to make extra in incentives. Maybin played for Detroit in 2007 and 2016 and was the team's first-round pick in 2005. He'll turn 33 in April and hit .285 with 11 home runs and 32 RBI in 239 plate appearances in a platoon role for the Yankees last year. With the rebuilding Tigers, Maybin has a good chance for playing time, although he still might be more of a platoon corner outfielder. Consider the veteran as outfield depth with some speed and power in deep mixed and AL-only leagues.

Jordy Mercer Re-Signs With Tigers

The Detroit Tigers re-signed shortstop Jordy Mercer to a minor league deal on Thursday. He'll receive an invite to spring training. Mercer played in only 74 games for Detroit in 2019 due to injury, but he did hit a respectable .270/.310/.438 with nine home runs and 22 RBI. Still, he's a glove-first player that won't offer fantasy owners much with his bat, and he's not even guaranteed to see regular playing time with a rebuilding club if he makes the major league roster. At best, Mercer is bench depth in AL-only leagues at middle infield.

Michael Fulmer Throwing From 90 Feet

Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Michael Fulmer (elbow), who had Tommy John surgery last spring, has lost around 20 pounds and said he's throwing from 90 feet on flat ground. Fulmer will progress to 120 feet next week. The right-hander is making good progress, but he's unlikely to be an option for Detroit's rotation until the second half of the 2020 season. For that reason, he won't be much of an option for those in redraft leagues. The 26-year-old (27 in March) won the American League Rookie of the Year in 2016 but has disappointed since, culminating with a 4.69 ERA and 1.32 WHIP with a 7.5 K/9 in 24 starts in 2018. Fulmer missed all of last season.
