  • Tigers' Matt Vierling: Favorite to start at third base

    Vierling is the favorite to serve as the Tigers' starting third baseman to begin the 2024 season, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports. Vierling was traded from Philadelphia to Detroit last offseason, and he played at third base in 35 of his 134 games during the 2023 campaign. Overall, he slashed .261/.329/.388 with 10 homers, 63 runs, 44 RBI and six steals and should have a chance to earn regular playing time at the hot corner early in 2024. If Vierling struggles as the starting third baseman, the Tigers could turn to Zach McKinstry, Colt Keith, Tyler Nevin or Andy Ibanez at some point.

  • Tigers' Matt Vierling: Posts big line in season finale

    Vierling went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a two-run home run and two runs scored in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Guardians. Vierling finished his first season in Detroit on a positive note, blasting his 10th home run and recording his 20th and 21st doubles. The versatile 26-year-old ended up playing in 134 games, seeing his most regular run in right field, though he also played in left, center and at third base. Vierling figures to have a similar role in 2024, with his versatility carrying more value for his MLB team than for fantasy managers, though he could be an option in deeper leagues if the playing time is there.

  • Tigers' Matt Vierling: Two hits, two RBI in win

    Vierling went 2-for-5 with a triple, two RBI and one run scored in Thursday's 7-3 victory over the Royals. Vierling struck out in two of his first three trips to the plate before driving in two runs with a single in the bottom of the seventh, tying the game at 3-3. He later added a triple but was left stranded, giving him his fifth multi-hit game this month. Even with the two-hit performance, the right fielder is still batting just .247 (20-for-81) in September with two homers, 11 RBI and 18 runs scored.

  • Tigers' Matt Vierling: Hits first career grand slam

    Vierling went 1-for-3 with a grand slam, a walk, a second run scored and a stolen base in Thursday's 8-2 win over the Reds. Vierling was hit by a pitch in his first at-bat and ended up coming around to score Detroit's first run of the game after stealing second. He later homered with the bases full in the bottom of the eighth to extend the Tigers' lead to seven runs, marking the first grand slam of his major-league career. He is up to nine home runs this season, which is one more than his total across his first two years in the league with the Phillies. He's batting .375 in September with two homers, seven RBI and 12 runs scored, while the stolen base was his first since July 4.

  • Tigers' Matt Vierling: Hits grand slam Thursday

    Vierling went 1-for-3 with a walk, a grand slam and a second run scored in Thursday's win over the Reds. Vierling waited for the eighth inning to hit his grand slam, but it broke open what had been a 4-1 game. The utility player is up to nine home runs this season, which is one more than his total across his first two years in the league with the Phillies. Vierling hasn't been a great fantasy asset this season, though he should continue to see regular playing time down the stretch.

The 26-year-old Vierling has seen regular playing time with the Tigers this season, and he's been making the most of it. His slash line is up to .272/.330/.394 with seven homers, 37 runs scored, 27 RBI and five steals across 348 plate appearances this season.

  • Tigers' Matt Vierling: Taking seat Tuesday

    Vierling is absent from the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Twins. The Tigers are opting to use Kerry Carpenter in right field and Miguel Cabrera at designated hitter versus right-hander Sonny Gray. Vierling has actually hit righties better than lefties this season, but nearly all his days off have come when Detroit has faced a right-handed starting pitcher.

  • Tigers' Matt Vierling: Takes seat Monday

    Vierling is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Giants.

  • Tigers' Matt Vierling: Not starting Sunday

  • Tigers' Matt Vierling: Back in action Wednesday

    Vierling (back) will start in center field and bat seventh in Wednesday's game against the Royals. Vierling will check back into the Detroit outfield after a bout with back spasms kept him on the bench each of the past three games. Now that Vierling is ostensibly healthy again, Jake Marisnick will likely move back into a fourth-outfielder role.

  • Tigers' Matt Vierling: Leading off Saturday

    Vierling is starting in right field and batting first in Saturday's game against the Twins. With Zach McKinstry on the bench, the Tigers will turn to Vierling in the leadoff spot. The latter has consecutive three-hit games, pushing his season batting average to .268, and he could see more opportunities at the top of the order if he stays hot at the plate. Vierling has also chipped in four stolen bases this season, though he has been caught stealing five times.

  • Tigers' Matt Vierling: Tallies three hits Thursday

    Vierling went 3-for-3 with a walk, an RBI and a run scored in Thursday's win over the Twins. Vierling also got picked off when he left too early trying to steal second base, but it was a positive night overall. He started in center field before shifting over to right when Jake Marisnick entered as a defensive replacement. With Riley Greene (fibula) out, Vierling should remain a lineup staple most days. Even when Greene eventually returns, Vierling figures to be the top option in right.

  • Tigers' Matt Vierling: Activated, starting in CF

    The Tigers activated Vierling (back) from the 10-day injured list Monday. He'll start in center field and bat sixth in Detroit's series opener with Atlanta. Vierling has been sidelined since late May with a back issue but is ready to roll following a short rehab assignment. He's seen most of his action in right field this season, but he could end up settling into a regular role in center for the time being while Riley Greene (lower leg) is likely multiple weeks away from a return from the IL.

  • Tigers' Matt Vierling: Could be activated Monday

    Vierling (back) returned to Detroit on Sunday and could be reinstated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Monday's series opener with Atlanta, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. Vierling met with team trainers and manager A.J. Hinch in what appeared to be a final checkup after he completed a two-game rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo on Friday and Saturday. Assuming Vierling's back issue is no longer causing him problems, he should immediately step into a near-everyday role in the Detroit outfield once activated.

  • Tigers' Matt Vierling: Begins workouts at Triple-A

    Vierling (back) began workouts at Triple-A Toledo on Thursday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

The 26-year-old outfielder has been on the 10-day injured list since May 30 due to lower-back soreness.
