Tigers' Alex Avila, Yoenis Cespedes return to lineup Monday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/16/15) Tigers catcher Alex Avila and Yoenis Cespedes are in the starting lineup for Monday's spring game against the Cardinals.
Avila was pulled from Wednesday's game with lower back stiffness. He was initially scheduled to return Friday before being crossed off the team's travel roster. Cespedes came out of Thursday's game with quad tightness and was not expected to appear Sunday or Monday, but he'll make his return to action in Jupiter against the Cardinals.
Tigers' Yoenis Cespedes not in travel roster for Sunday, Monday
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/14/15) Tigers outfielder Yoenis Cespedes is set to take batting practice on Saturday, but isn't on the team's travel roster to go to Jupiter on Sunday and Monday, per MLive.com.
Cespedes left Thursday's Grapefruit League game with tightness in his left quad, and has not been able to return since. He did reveal that his left quad is feeling better on Saturday. He is hitting .313 with one double, one home run and five RBI in six spring games.
Barring a last-minute trip to join his teammates in Jupiter, the next opportunity for him to return to the lineup will come against Washington in Lakeland.
Tigers' Ausmus: Cespedes penciled in to play Sat., surprised if he does
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/13/15) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Friday outfielder Yoenis Cespedes is feeling "so-so" after leaving Thursday's spring game due to tightness in his left quad, per MLB.com. Ausmus said Cespedes is penciled into the lineup for a split-squad game Saturday, but he would be surprised if Cespedes plays.
Cespedes, who was acquired in an offseason trade with Boston, is batting .313 (5 for 16) with one double, one home run and five RBI in six spring games. He also has five runs, one walk and one stolen base.
Cespedes is entering the final year of his contract. He is slated to make $10.5 million in 2015.
Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes leaves game with tight quad
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(3/12/15) Tigers outfielder Yoenis Cespedes left Thursday's game with tightness in his left quad, per MLB.com and is day-to-day.
Cespedes already has missed time due to back soreness this spring, his first with the Tigers after being acquired from the Red Sox in the offseason.
Tigers' Yoenis Cespedes returns to starting lineup Saturday
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/7/15) Tigers outfielder Yoenis Cespedes, who was scratched from the lineup Thursday against Atlanta due to lower back tightness, returned to the lineup Saturday, starting in left field and hitting cleanup against the Braves, the Detroit Free Press reports.
|2014 summary: Coming into 2014, Yoenis Cespedes had established his value as a top 30 outfielder with two seasons with at least 20 home runs, 80 RBI and 70 runs, even having missed time with injuries. The only question was whether he would be a high-strikeout hitter with a low batting average or a moderate strikeout hitter with a decent batting average. Cespedes' 2014 season didn't answer that question, as he found the middle ground of his first two seasons with a .260 average, even though he cut his strikeout per at-bat rate from 26 to 21 percent. Slight declines in his infield hit and home run rates contributed to Cespedes falling well short of his .292 batting average from 2012, though most of his power decline occurred after his July trade from the Athletics to the Red Sox. Still, career highs in RBI (100) and runs (89) lifted Cespedes into the top 20 among outfielders in Fantasy value. With an offseason deal sending him to the Tigers, Cespedes will contend with another change of scenery this spring.
Playing time status: Cespedes appeared in 152 games last season, but as in past years, he battled a variety of nagging injuries. He just may never be a player who regularly plays 150-plus games a year.
2015 outlook: Cespedes' declines in power and speed are slightly concerning, and he may have trouble matching his run production totals from 2014, but over three seasons, he has established himself as a consistent -- but not quite elite -- producer. It's reasonable to draft Cespedes among the top 30 outfielders.
