Bad spring doesn't sour Tigers on OF prospect Steven Moya


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) Tigers outfielder Steven Moya was optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Sunday following a rough spring at the plate. The 23-year-old prospect hit just .125 (4 for 32) with one home run, 12 strikeouts and no walks.

Despite the poor performance, the Tigers still have high hopes for Moya, who hit .276 with 33 doubles, 35 home runs and 105 RBI in 133 games at Double-A last season.

"He scuffled a little bit and he knows he's been scuffling with his swing," manager Brad Ausmus said, per the Detroit Free Press. "But this was only roughly a month's worth of Steven Moya's resume.

"He's going to be a good player. He wasn't sent out just because he was struggling. We have other outfielders that are kind of locked in at this point but he's a good kid, he's as hard a worker as I've come across and he will get through this.

"I'm not concerned about it at all but it's tough for a guy to go through it, a hitting funk like this. It's hard on you mentally but he'll be fine."


Tigers send Steven Moya to Triple-A


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/22/2015) The Tigers sent Steven Moya to Triple-A Toledo after Sunday's game. Despite not making the MLB club, it still represents a promotion for the outfielder, who played last season in Double-A. 

Moya hit .125 for the Tigers this spring, striking out 12 times in 32 at bats. 


Tigers OF Steven Moya (back) cleared to play Wednesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said outfielder Steven Moya will be available off the bench for Wednesday's spring game against the Orioles after sitting out Tuesday due to back spasms.

Tigers OF Steven Moya held out Tuesday due to back spasms


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) 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


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/2/2015) 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
(1/30/2015) 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
(9/2/2014) 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
(3/14/2014) 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.

Tigers add seven to 40-man roster


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/20/2013) The Tigers added first baseman Jordan Lennerton, shortstop Eugenio Suarez, outfielders Daniel Fields and Steven Moya and pitchers Kyle Lobstein, Jose Valdez and Justin Miller to the 40-man roster Wednesday.

Lennerton hit .278/.382/.430 with 17 home runs and 57 RBI in 514 at-bats with Triple-A Toledo. Suarez hit .264/.347/.396 with 10 home runs, 57 RBI and 11 stolen bases in 545 at-bats between high Class A Lakeland and Double-A Erie.

Fields hit .284/.356/.435 with 10 home runs, 58 RBI and 24 stolen bases in 457 at-bats with Double-A Erie. Moya hit .255/.296/.433 with 12 home runs and 55 RBI in 365 at-bats with high Class A Lakeland.

Lobstein went 13-7 with a 3.27 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 148:52 K:BB ratio in 167 2/3 innings over 28 starts between Double-A Erie and Triple-A Toledo. Valdez went 2-2 with a 2.74 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, 67:34 K:BB ratio and 33 saves in 49 1/3 innings between Class A West Michigan and high Class-A Lakeland.

Miller was signed in September and has missed most of the last two seasons after undergoing Tommy John surgery in April 2012.


Moya no longer overlooked


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2013) MLive.com reports Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski has high praise for outfield prospect Steven Moya. Dombrowski was talking Wednesday about the outfield prospects in the lower level of the team's farm system. "Moya might be better than all of them," Dombrowski said. Moya then went out and dominated against Florida Southern College in an exhibition game. Moya went 3 for 3 with one double, one triple, two RBI and three runs. "He's a prospect -- and a good one," Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. "That's where he stands right now. He's an impressive young man."

Moya back from Tommy John


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(2/9/2013) Tigers hitting prospect Steven Moya is barely seven months recovered from ligament-replacement surgery last June, reports the Detroit News. That said, the 21-year-old is almost ready for the season. "I'm almost there," Moya said Friday as he dressed inside the minor league clubhouse at Tigertown, where Tigers pitchers and catchers will formally begin 2013 workouts Tuesday. "Throwing 150 feet. Yessir, just about there."
