  • Zach McKinstry Looking To Stay Hot Monday

    Headshot for Zach McKinstry

    Detroit Tigers utility man Zach McKinstry is leading off Monday's game against Nathan Eovaldi and the Texas Rangers. It's a tough matchup, but the 28-year-old has been superb with the bat over 44 games, slashing .295/.409/.451 with four home runs, 23 runs, 10 RBI, and 10 steals, and hit .391 over the last week. McKinstry's production came almost out of nowhere after he was drafted in the 33rd round back in 2016, and he owned a .208 average and .652 OPS across his previous three seasons in the big leagues. If he's still available on the waiver wire, fantasy managers should think about adding him to their roster.

    Headshot for Zach McKinstry

    Detroit Tigers utility man Zach McKinstry is leading off on Saturday to take on Bryce Miller and the Seattle Mariners. The 28-year-old has now led off 12 of the past 16 games, and rightfully so, as he's slashing .280/.362/.415 with two homers, 13 runs, six RBI, and five stolen bases over 31 games. McKinstry has never been a fantasy option in his previous three seasons at the big-league level, but if he continues producing at the top of the order, he can be a sneaky waiver-wire option for fantasy managers in deep leagues due to his speed, average, and run scoring.

  • Tigers Acquire Zach McKinstry Monday

    Headshot for Zach McKinstry

    The Detroit Tigers acquired utilityman Zach McKinstry Monday from the Chicago Cubs in exchange for relief pitcher Carlos Guzman. The 27-year-old is out of Minor League options, so the Tigers are expected to carry him on their Opening Day roster. Right-handed pitcher Freddy Pacheco (elbow) was recalled from Triple-A Toledo and placed on the 60-day injured list with a right elbow sprain in a corresponding move. McKinstry only slashed .199/.273/.361 in 185 plate appearances with the Dodgers and Cubs last season, but he played second, third, shortstop, and outfield. While he may serve a useful role for the Cubs, he can be avoided in fantasy leagues.
