Fantasy Team Preview: Detroit Tigers

0

Nick Shlain

Victor Martinez is back, Miguel Cabrera is still there, and those are two reasons why you shouldn't sleep on the fantasy options in Motown.

Even when the general manager is Dave Dombrowski, losing Jhonny Peralta, Omar Infante, Doug Fister, and Prince Fielder in one offseason is a bit much. The Tigers overcame their subtractions and, led by Victor Martinez, Miguel Cabrera, and Ian Kinsler, went on to win 90 games and a fourth consecutive American League Central division title, but they also had the worst Pythagorean win total (86) of the last four versions of this team.

At the trade deadline, the Tigers acquired David Price, almost acknowledging that Max Scherzer’s exit is inevitable. Early offseason moves like re-upping with Victor Martinez and the Devon Travis for Anthony Gose swap show that the Tigers will continue to be in win-now mode for the next few years. Before they address a few key areas of need, let’s take a look at the fantasy relevant players still under team control.

Even if Max Scherzer leaves this offseason, the Tigers will have a dominant top four. A big part of that is Rick Porcello's emergence. Here's how it happened.

Six years and $144 million. That was the contract that Max Scherzer reportedly turned down before the 2014 season. Instead, Scherzer took his $15.5 million to pitch this season, famously taking out a sizeable insurance policy on his ability to obtain a large contract this offseason. It’s probably safe to chalk this one up as a win for the insurer, given that Scherzer is in line to receive a huge contract as a free agent this winter.

Losing Scherzer will inevitably hurt, but the Tigers will still have David Price, Justin Verlander, an underrated Anibal Sanchez, and Rick Porcello in their rotation next season. Taking that a step further, Porcello’s “emergence” this season could play a role in the club’s willingness to part ways with one of their former Cy Young winners. If Porcello’s 2015 season resembles the one just past, the club will be in good shape.

Toronto makes way in center for a top prospect; the Tigers trade from a shallow system; and the Pirates get a new pitch-framer.

The Tigers keep playing for now; it hasn't burned them yet. Also: Dean Anna gets a big-league deal, Rob Scahill is on the move, and San Diego is rid of Roach.

Evaluations of the top 50 free agents available in the 2014-2015 offseason, with near-worthless predictions about where they'll land.

Another year, another top-50 list. Here are three things to remember while reading through the rankings: 1) international free agents were excluded on the principle that if I haven't seen them in some manner or another, then I don't feel comfortable ranking them; 2) "Randy" is a random number generator whose predictions were made by pairing integers with teams (e.g. the number 1 and the Angels); and 3) the list is ordered based on expected AAV with some other considerations (learned from past lists) factored in:

What makes a moment slow-motionable? What makes a moment made for soft focus and sepia? What will make you cry this month? It's complicated.

Throughout the playoffs, sportswritin' fella Miles Wray will be writing for us about the production of postseason baseball. What Miles takes that vague phrase to mean will be as much of a surprise to me as it will be to you. Here’s his first piece.

Allow me to propose a new term for the baseball lexicon: Octoberness. Noun. Used in a sentence: “Derek Jeter joyously dogpiling with Mariano Rivera, Jorge Posada, and Bernie Williams sure is peak Octoberness.

Octoberness, along with all of playoff baseball, is something just slightly separate from regular baseball; not necessarily better or worse so much as easier to recall, easier to retell, easier to manipulate. Regular baseball is feeling your arms sunburn as the losing manager slowly strolls out to pull another reliever in an 8-2 game. Octoberness is David Ortiz launching a ball over the Monstah at midnight, his breath misting in the air as he rounds the bases. Regular baseball is Aramis Ramirez. Octoberness is David Freese.

The Orioles pulled off an unexpected take-down of the Tigers in three games and the finale had numerous big moments.

Of all the possible outcomes in the Orioles-Tigers series, none seemed less likely than an O's sweep. Baltimore faced unfavorable match-ups at every turn, as would most teams pitted against three consecutive former Cy Young winners. But reality often defies expectations, so why would this series be any different? Three eventful games later, the surprising O's are headed for the ALCS.

Playoff Prospectus: ALDS Game Two Recap: Orioles 7, Tigers 6

4

Jeff Quinton

Once again, the Tigers suspect bullpen loomed large in a loss to the Orioles, but did their manager put them in the best position to succeed?

Game Two of the 2014 ALDS featured a lot of starting pitchers, at least as defined by their regular season roles. Wie-Yin Chen and Justin Verlander only pitched 3 2/3 and 5 innings respectively. As a result, each team went with a starting pitcher as their first pitcher out of the bullpen. All four pitchers (Chen, Verlander, Kevin Gausman, and Anibal Sanchez) pitched excellently their first time through the order. While Sanchez was pulled after facing six hitters, the other three all got to take a shot at their opponent’s lineup a second time and, in Verlander’s case, a thirds time. Those results were bad.
