Vierling Homers, But Tigers Fall to Nationals

by Jesse Garcia | Tigers Correspondent | Wed, Jun 12th 11:29pm EDT

Matt Vierling went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in the Tigers' 7-5 loss to the Nationals.

Fantasy Impact:

While the long ball was a bright spot, the rest of his day at the plate left much to be desired with two strikeouts and no additional hits. Vierling's season has been decent, maintaining a .268 average with modest power, as evidenced by his eight home runs. His limited walk rate and higher strikeout rate continue to cap his on-base potential, making him a fringe fantasy option in most formats. His power surge can provide occasional value, but fantasy managers should temper expectations given his overall hitting profile and lack of stolen bases.
