Victor Reyes News
Detroit Tigers outfielder Victor Reyes is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Indians. Reyes struck out twice and scored a run on Opening Day- but finds himself on the bench in favor of right-fielder Nomar Mazara in the second game of the season. Miguel Cabrera will slot into the designated hitter role, with Jonathan Schoop sliding over to first base. This isn't the best news for Reyes' fantasy value, though he should still see some starts over the left-handed batting Mazara against southpaws. As of now, Mazara seems to have an everyday role in the lineup.
Detroit Tigers outfielder Victor Reyes went 2-for-3 with a run scored in Monday's 5-2 victory over the New York Yankees. Reyes is now 9-for-31 with four RBI and one stolen base this spring. While Reyes was leading off in this one, it seems likely he could split some time in the outfield since the Tigers elected to keep Akil Baddoo as they break camp and head back to Detroit later this week. If Reyes has the opportunity to start, it is likely he would provide value to many fantasy rosters as he provides a nice mixture of speed and average with a bit of power as noted by his 2020 season in which he hit .277 while stealing eight bags and hitting four home runs across 202 at-bats. He currently has an ADP of 270 and could make for a decent late-round flier if given the opportunity.
The Detroit Tigers called up outfielder Victor Reyes on Thursday to take the roster spot of fellow outfielder JaCoby Jones (low back strain), who was placed on the 10-day Injured List. Reyes appeared in five games for the Tigers earlier this year. Over his 65 games in Triple-A, he's had a slash line of .302/.326/.480 with nine home runs and 55 RBI. The Tigers are certainly in need of a boost to their offense and there should be a path towards relatively consistent playing time if Reyes can earn it. Keep him on your radar in AL-only and 14+ team leagues, but he can remain on waivers at least for now.
Detroit Tigers outfielderVictor Reyes enters the 2021 season as the Tigers likely leadoff hitter following a quietly impressive 2020 season. Reyes played in 57 games last year, hitting four homers with a .277/.315/.391 slash line and eight stolen bases. The steals provide the most fantasy value when drafting Reyes, but there is more to him than some late-round speed. In 2020, Reyes ranked in the 62nd percentile for hard-hit rate but hit too many ground balls to turn that into more power. Under the tutelage of analytics-led manager A.J. Hinch, Reyes should be better guided to elevate the ball more and turn some of that power into line drives and more home runs. On a losing team last year, Reyes scored 30 runs, which equates to 81 over a 162-game season, and the Tigers will need to utilize Reyes' speed on the bases to score runs as they try to compete in the AL Central.Reyes was tied 33rd in runs scored, tied for sixth in steals and 24th in batting average among qualified outfielders last year. Despite this, Reyes has a current ADP of 191, which is 52nd among outfield-eligible players. Reyes is an ideal stolen-base asset to take in the later rounds of drafts and carries some power upside. He won't drag down your other stats, either, with a good accumulation of runs and a solid batting average.
