RAJAI DAVIS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Find Value in Speed by Exploiting ESPN ADP

Speed is the easiest 5x5 category to find late in the draft.  In most drafts last year, Rajai Davis was an afterthought.  A guy to pick up in the late rounds of 12-team drafts and a guy who probably went undrafted in many 10-team drafts.  Last year I played in one Razzball Commenter League, and in that league I took Davis at pick #240.  He ended up finishing #111 on Rudy's Player...

Gene Lamont looked a lot like Rajai Davis on Saturday (PHOTO)

The jersey of Tigers third base coach Gene Lamont got some game action Saturday in spring training.  No, Brad Ausmus didn’t need to run Lamont out there to pinch run (I’m guessing Lamont can’t run).  Lamont didn’t need to mop up a split squad game. But rather, Tigers left fielder Rajai Davis forgot his jersey in Lakeland despite making the trip to Tampa to play the Yankees...

Detroit Tigers rumors: Rusney Castillo edition

The Detroit Tigers might finally dip their hand into the waters and pull a Cuban ballplayer to the Motor City. Recent and prolific successes gained by defectors Yoenis Cespedes, Yasiel Puig, and Jose Abreu have drawn attention to one man – Rusney Castillo. Castillo last played in Cuba in 2012. He’s a 27-year old, stocky outfielder, standing just 5’9’’ but weighing a shade...

But those aren’t the numbers I find most intriguing. As we near the halfway point of the MLB season, here are some digits to chew on: From 2009 through Jim Leyland’s last season in ’14, the Tigers were a consistently dominant...

With Dirks injury Rajai Davis in line for extra playing time, steals

With news that slated platoon partner Andy Dirks is going to miss the next three months, or more, Rajai Davis is due for an increase in playing time. He may not play every day, but certainly more than he would have as the platoon partner who hits well against left handed pitchers. With a handful of names that can fill in in Detroit’s outfield he may not see 25 at bats a week but...

Detroit Tigers 2014 outfield preview

Despite the wholesale changes in the Detroit Tigers infield from 2013 to this year, the outfield returns relatively intact. The only change of note is that Matt Tuiasasopo is out and speedy Rajai Davis is in. As I did with the infield (click here) I will break down the five man outfield and outline what we should expect from this group in ’14. Austin Jackson Austin Jackson As much...
