Daz Cameron will be back taking live BP at Tigers camp today, and will be featured in games this weekend as a DH. Cameron has not begun taking outfield reps yet.
Cameron will get at-bats as a DH on Friday, and is slated to make his first start of the season at DH on Saturday. Cameron has been hampered by an elbow injury that he suffered in the Puerto Rican league over the winter. The 24-year-old will be looking to break out and prove he can be an impact player in the outfield for the Tigers, after struggling in 2020.
Daz Cameron (elbow) was tracking pitches on Wednesday, but not taking swings. Manager AJ Hinch hopes to have Cameron take batting practice in the coming days.
Cameron injured his right elbow this winter in the Puerto Rican league. He was shut down briefly but appears to be slated to return to action shortly. The 2015 1st round pick made his major league debut in 2020, but struggled with a .193 batting average and .483 OPS.
The Tigers recalled OF prospect Daz Cameron from their alternate training site.
Cameron is a former first-round pick and a former top-100 prospect. His shine has faded in recent season but the 23-year-old still has plenty of tools that could eventually contribute to big league success. Cameron spent the 2019 season in Triple-A, hitting .214 with a .707 OPS in 120 games.
