Mikie Mahtook hit his ninth home run of the season in the eighth inning of Saturday's game against the Royals. The two-run shot put the Tigers up for good.
Mahtook has done well with his limited playing time since being called back up from the minors in August. All nine of his home runs since, but his .217 batting average needs some improvement before he can be considered a fantasy asset.
