Detroit Tigers
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Lugo didn't do much in his first taste of big-league action last season, hitting an unimpressive .213/.267/.309 with one homer in 101 plate appearances. Even on a rebuilding Tigers club, he's probably on the outside looking in to begin the 2019 campaign. His Triple-A numbers (.269/.283/.350 in 123 games for Toledo) don't offer much reason for excitement long term. Lugo did profile as a fringe starter as a prospect earlier in his career, with plus raw power but questions about his ability to stick at second base and his ability to get to that power in games. At age 24, it's too early to give up on him completely. The rebuilding Tigers have plenty of at-bats to go around, so it will only take a small improvement at Triple-A for Lugo to earn playing time.

Batting second again
2BDetroit Tigers
May 19, 2019
Lugo is starting at third base and batting second in Sunday's game against the Athletics.
ANALYSIS
Lugo batted seventh in his first two games after Thursday's promotion from Triple-A Toledo, but he will now be batting second for the second straight day. The Tigers are searching for answers on offense, so the 24-year-old could get an extended look as the No. 2 hitter, though he could also drop back down in the order if runs continue to be hard to come by and manager Ron Gardenhire decides to tinker.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Lugo came over to the Diamondbacks organization in 2015 from Toronto in exchange for Cliff Pennington. Considered a fringe prospect before the trade, Lugo has actually made a pretty good impression with his new team, and he's now among the top pieces in Arizona's below-average farm system. In his first full season with the organization, Lugo hit .311/.339/.492 in 488 at-bats across High-A Visalia and Double-A Mobile. He also surged to a combined 17 home runs, matching his total from his first four minor league seasons. At age 22, Lugo is still filling in his 6-foot frame, so the power production could continue to increase. Lugo primarily played third base last season, though he also saw some time at shortstop. Expect him to start the season at Double-A Jackson as the organization takes a longer look at what he can do at the level.
