Tigers OF Steven Moya held out Tuesday due to back spasms
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/3/15) Tigers outfielder Steven Moya was unable to play in Tuesday's spring opener against the Orioles due to back spasms, per MLB.com. He will be re-evaluated Wednesday.
The 23-year-old Moya is considered the Tigers' top prospect by Baseball America. However, he is expected to open the season in the minors.
Tigers' Steven Moya unlikely to make opening day roster

|(2/2/15) Tigers outfielder Steven Moya is unlikely to make the team's opening day roster, according to mlive.com.
Moya will get a chance to open the year with the club during spring training, but even that seems like a long shot at this point. "At this point, it would probably be tough," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said.
Assistant general manager Al Avila agreed, saying it would be more beneficial for the 23-year-old Moya to receive consistent at-bats. "With a guy like Moya, you don't want to bring him in and have him on the bench to play once in a while," Avila said. "You want him to be playing every single day."
Ausmus added that he believes the team's outfield is set, and Moya likely wouldn't receive significant playing time early unless an injury struck.
Moya hit .276/.306/.555 over 515 at-bats at Double-A last season. Moya is rated as the team's second-best prospect coming into the year, according to Baseball America.
Tigers' Dombrowski: Steven Moya 'relatively close' to making impact
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/30/15) Tigers outfield prospect Steven Moya, who was the MVP of the Eastern League (Double-A) in 2014, is expected to open the season at Triple-A Toledo, per the Detroit Free Press.
"I don't know if I'd say we're buying time for Moya," Tigers president and general manager Dave Dombrowski said last week. "Probably when a guy as talented as Moya is ready, he'll make his way onto a team. I don't think we could absolutely say, trying to win a pennant, trying to win a world championship, you can count on him being 100 percent ready."
The 23-year-old Moya hit .276 with a .555 slugging percentage, .861 OPS, 33 doubles, 35 home runs and 105 RBI in 133 games last season at Double-A. He has a career .251/.444/.739 slash line over six minor-league seasons.
Moya also made a brief appearance in the majors last season, batting .375 (3 for 8) in 11 games.
"I think the development time will be good for him" Dombrowski said. "Could he come up and produce at some time during the year? Yes. He's relatively close."
Tigers make additions to expanded roster
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(9/2/14) The Tigers recalled infielder Hernan Perez from Triple-A Toledo and outfielder Steven Moya from Double-A Erie Monday with the expansion of rosters.
Moya finished off a breakout age-22 season at Double-A, hitting .276/.306/.555 while slugging 35 home runs. Perez hit .287/.331/.404 in 133 games for Toledo.
Tigers option Steven Moya to Double-A
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/14/14) The Tigers optioned outfielder Steven Moya to Double-A Erie after Friday's 12-6 win over the Nationals. He went 0 for 1 in Friday's win and finishes major-league camp 7 for 21 with five RBI and one walk.
|2014 summary: Steven Moya solidified his position as one of the Tigers' top prospects among hitters, as the outfielder swatted 35 home runs, drove in 105 runs, stole 16 bases and batted .276 at Double-A Erie. He was a September callup for the Tigers, and he appeared in 11 games, going 3 for 8.|
Playing time status: Barring a scalding-hot spring, Moya's chances of breaking camp with the club are slim, as he is likely to begin the season at Triple-A Toledo. He should still see playing time at the major league level at some point during 2015.
2015 outlook: Moya clearly possesses power, but his plate discipline could hold him back. There is little reason to draft Moya in even the deepest of single-season leagues, but he needs to be owned in dynasty formats.
