Spring is here and Eric Karabell misses baseball, so he is going to write about all 30 MLB teams over the next few months, covering myriad player values and his general thoughts for what he hopes will ultimately be a fruitful 2020 season.
Next up, the Detroit Tigers!
Top fantasy storyline: This club lost 114 games in 2019, and with precious few fantasy storylines. Left-hander Matthew Boyd struck out 238 hitters. That is fantastic. However, no Tiger hit more than 15 home runs and you would never guess that fellow was Brandon Dixon. Nobody stole more than 12 bases. Nobody, including Boyd, won double-digit games. Chances are that beyond Boyd (and with Nicholas Castellanos and Shane Greene mercifully gone to contenders), there were no other Tigers rostered in your fantasy league.
