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.

Out of lineup for season finale
3BDetroit Tigers
September 29, 2019
Lugo is not starting in Sunday's game against the White Sox.
Lugo has taken over as the team's primary third baseman, and he's batted .297 over his past 10 games, but he'll take a seat for the 2019 finale with Ronny Rodriguez starting at the hot corner. Heading into 2020, Lugo looks like he'll be an Opening Day starter, though that depends on what the Tigers do in the offseason to replenish their roster.

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.
