  • Matt Vierling Resting Against Pirates

    Headshot for Matt Vierling

    Detroit Tigers outfielder Matt Vierling is taking a day off on Tuesday against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Vierling has earned a spot on the Tigers bench by going 4-for-42 (.095) with a homer, two RBI and seven strikeouts in 11 games played so far in the month of May. The slump has dropped his season line to .220/.273/.317 with two home runs, 10 RBI and 10 runs scored in 132 plate appearances. Fantasy managers in AL-only leagues may want to follow the Tigers' lead and bench him. Zach McKinstry is getting the start in right field on Tuesday and is hitting leadoff against Pirates right-hander Luis L. Ortiz. In 33 games in his first year in Detroit, McKinstry is hitting .273 (24-for-88) with five doubles, two home runs, six RBI and five stolen bases.

  • Matt Vierling Hitting Leadoff Tuesday

    Headshot for Matt Vierling

    Detroit Tigers outfielder Matt Vierling is hitting leadoff Tuesday against the Milwaukee Brewers and left-hander Eric Lauer. Vierling didn't start Monday's contest but did make a pinch-hitting appearance that resulted in a strikeout. As has consistently been the case to this point in the season, Vierling will start and leadoff against a left-handed starter as he's a .293 career hitter with a .731 OPS against lefties while hitting just .232 with a .634 OPS against same-handed pitching. Vierling doesn't offer a ton of power but does have a pair of steals in 18 appearances after swiping 15 bags across 138 contests between the minors and majors with the Phillies organization in 2022.

  • Matt Vierling Sitting Against Red Sox

    Headshot for Matt Vierling

    Detroit Tigers outfielder Matt Vierling is not in Sunday's starting lineup against the Boston Red Sox. Vierling has surprisingly already played in seven games for the Tigers in the early going with the team facing a lot of lefties early on, and he's gone 8-for-28 (.286) with a double, home run, three RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base in 30 plate appearances in his first year in Detroit. The 26-year-old should continue to see regular playing time with Austin Meadows going on the injured list with anxiety. With Vierling out in the series finale against Boston, Akil Baddoo will start in left field and bat leadoff against right-hander Kutter Crawford. Baddoo was just called up with Meadows going on the IL and will have a chance to make an impact right away.

  • Matt Vierling Leading Off Thursday Against Boston

    Headshot for Matt Vierling

    Detroit Tigers outfielder Matt Vierling is starting in right field and leading off in Thursday's game against the Boston Red Sox. He has now led off in four of Detroit's six games in 2023. The 26-year-old is off to a hot start this season, slashing .350/.381/.550 with a home run, three RBI, two runs, and a stolen base over five games. Vierling has collected a hit in three straight games and will look to extend his hitting streak to four against Boston Thursday. Fantasy managers can use Vierling as a streamer while he's wielding a hot bat.

  • Matt Vierling Leading Off In Tigers Debut

    Headshot for Matt Vierling

    Detroit Tigers utility player Matt Vierling is leading off for the Tigers on Opening Day in what marks his debut with his new club. Acquired in an off-season trade with the Phillies that sent Tigers closer Gregory Soto to Philadelphia, Vierling hit .246 with six home runs, seven stolen bases, and a .648 OPS across 117 games with the Phillies last season. However, Vierling has displayed a solid combination of pop and speed in his minor-league career and has just 151 career MLB appearances under his belt approaching his age-26 season. As the lone right-handed hitting option the Tigers broke camp with, expect Vierling to regularly hit leadoff against left-handed pitching beginning Thursday against Rays southpaw Shane McClanahan.

  • Matt Vierling Playing Monday Against Blue Jays

    Headshot for Matt Vierling

    Detroit Tigers outfielder Matt Vierling (knee) is back in the Grapefruit League lineup on Monday against the Toronto Blue Jays and right-hander Kevin Gausman. Vierling is starting in left field and is batting leadoff in his return. A knee strain costed Vierling the last 10 days in spring training, but he is back and ready to go. The former Philadelphia Phillie will be hoping to pick up where he left off in spring action, as he'll take a .467 batting average (7-for-15) with two home runs, four RBI, four runs scored and a stolen base into Monday's contest. In his first year in Detroit, the 26-year-old outfielder figures to once again be on the short side of an outfield platoon, which limits his fantasy appeal to AL-only formats.

  • Matt Vierling Dealing With Knee Strain

    Headshot for Matt Vierling

    Detroit Tigers outfielder Matt Vierling (knee) suffered a right knee strain in spring training earlier this week. Vierling will return to baseball activities over the weekend, but there isn't a concrete timetable for his return to Grapefruit League games. The 26-year-old seems unlikely to miss significant time this spring. He was officially diagnosed with a mild posterior knee muscle strain. Vierling is hitting a strong .467 (7-for-15) with two home runs, a walk and a strikeout in six games to this point. If healthy, the former Phillie projects to have a starting spot in Detroit's outfield in 2023. He's more effective in a platoon role while sitting against right-handed pitchers, so Vierling should only be valuable in deep mixed and AL-only leagues.
