  • Javier Baez Good To Go For Monday's Game

    Detroit Tigers shortstop Javier Baez (arm) is back in the starting lineup for Monday's game against left-hander Sean Manaea and the San Diego Padres. Baez was hit on his upper left arm by a pitch during Sunday's game. He initially remained in the game, but wound up being removed a few innings after the incident. The 29-year-old has slashed just .217/.260/.374 in his first year in a Tigers jersey while adding nine homers, 36 RBI and 34 runs.

  • Javier Baez Removed During Sunday's Game

    Detroit Tigers shortstop Javier Baez (arm) was lifted for a pinch hitter during the sixth inning of Sunday's game against the Minnesota Twins. It has been revealed the Baez is dealing with a left upper arm contusion. That makes sense considering Baez was hit on the arm by a pitch in the fourth inning of Sunday's contest. This doesn't sound like that type of injury that is going to require a stint on the injured list. Right now, fantasy managers should consider Baez day-to-day until further notice.

  • Javier Baez Riding Seven-Game Hitting Streak

    Detroit Tigers shortstop Javier Baez has been showing some signs of coming around at the plate lately. He's currently riding a seven-game hitting streak and he's notched multi-hit efforts in each of his last three games. He's also been providing a lot of power in this recent streak of his. Over the seven-game stretch, he's compiled three home runs, three doubles and a triple. Baez has been a massive disappointment for fantasy managers this year, slashing .216/.259/.367 with just six home runs, 21 RBI and 18 runs on the year. However, his long track record of success suggests that he'll wind up coming around at some point, and we may be looking at that point right now. If he's on the waiver wire in your league, now's the time to jump on him before it's too late.

  • Javier Baez Taking A Seat On Wednesday

    Detroit Tigers shortstop Javier Baez is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Chicago White Sox. Harold Castro will be covering shortstop and batting second in the game. Baez has continued to struggle at the plate in his first year in a Tigers uniform. He's slashing just .167/.235/.233 with 10 strikeouts over 30 at-bats in June. Across 50 total games this year, he has a .188/.232/.288 slash line to go along with three home runs, 16 RBI and 13 runs. His hard-hit rate has plummeted from 45.2% last year to 34.5% this year while his average exit velocity has taken a similar dip, dropping from 90.1 mph last year to 87.8 mph this year. With shortstop being such a deep position, Baez is someone who can be dropped in standard sized fantasy leagues. In AL-only leagues and deep leagues, however, he should remain on rosters and ideally just be benched until he heats up.

  • Javier Baez Receiving Another Day Off

    Detroit Tigers shortstop Javier Baez is out of the starting lineup for the second straight game on Thursday against the Minnesota Twins. Baez's second straight absence is reportedly part of a planned mental break for the struggling slugger. The 29-year-old hit .165/.209/.239 with one home run, two RBI, four walks and 29 strikeouts in 115 plate appearances in the month of May to drop his season slash line to .197/.236/.306 in 165 plate appearances. His OPS sits at a career-worst .542 as we head into June. Things should only get better, but fantasy managers may want to keep Baez benched until he figures things out at the plate. Harold Castro is getting another start at the 6 and is hitting second on Thursday against Twins right-hander Chris Archer.

  • Javier Baez Sitting On Wednesday

    Detroit Tigers shortstop Javier Baez is not in the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Minnesota Twins. Baez continues to struggle at the plate and is now hitting .197/.236/.306 with three home runs, 13 RBI and 10 runs scored in 165 plate appearances over 40 games in his first year in Detroit. In the month of May, the 29-year-old went 18-for-113 (.159) with 30 strikeouts, one home run and two RBI in 29 games played. We're not sure how much uglier it can get. Harold Castro is playing shortstop and batting second on Wednesday against Twins right-hander Bailey Ober. Castro has been much more reliable with the bat, as he's hitting .303 with four home runs and nine RBI in 29 games in 2022.

  • Javier Baez Hits His Third Home Run On Sunday

    Detroit Tigers shortstop Javier Baez helped the team defeat the Cleveland Guardians 4-2 on Sunday. He went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and a pair of strikeouts in the game. The home run was his third of the year and his first since April 26. Baez has been really struggling at the plate thus far in May. He has a .156/.198/.234 slash line this month with 22 strikeouts and only three walks. The 29-year-old maintained a hard-hit rate of over 40% in each of his last four seasons, topping out at 45.2% last year. So far this year, his hard-hit rate is sitting at just 35.2%. The venue change could certainly be hampering Baez, but his long track record of elite production encourages us to remain patient with him for a bit longer.
