Detroit Tigers call up Alex Faedo, Daz Cameron; place Austin Meadows, Victor Reyes on IL

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Makes return to majors

The Tigers recalled Cameron from Triple-A Toledo on Monday. With both Austin Meadows (illness) and Victor Reyes (quadriceps) heading to the injured list Monday, Cameron will rejoin the big club to provide an additional body in the outfield. Cameron isn't expected to contend for an everyday role while he's up with the big club, as the Tigers are likely to deploy Robbie Grossman, Willi Castro and Derek Hill as their regular outfielders until one of Meadows or Reyes is ready to come off the IL.

Cameron was returned to Triple-A Toledo on Saturday. Cameron served as the Tigers 29th man for Saturday's doubleheader against the Rockies. He started the second game, going 0-for-2 with a strikeout.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: 29th man Saturday

Cameron joined the Tigers as the 29th man for Saturday's doubleheader against the Rockies, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports. He has 12 strikeouts in seven games at Triple-A, so Cameron may be up for his glove more than his bat. He is not in the lineup for Game 1 of the twin bill.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Sent to Triple-A

Cameron was optioned to Triple-A Toledo following Wednesday's loss to the Yankees. Cameron has been with the big-league club the past five days but appeared in only one game, going 0-for-3 with a walk, a run and two strikeouts. He'll return to Toledo, where he went 4-for-24 with 10 strikeouts over the first six games of the season.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Swipes bag in Saturday's loss

Cameron went 0-for-3 with a walk, a run scored and a stolen base in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Royals. He accounted for Detroit's only run of the day, coming home on a Dustin Garneau double after drawing a free pass and swiping second with two outs in the second inning. Cameron was getting the start in center field with southpaw Kris Bubic on the mound for Kansas City, and he could serve on the short side of a platoon with Akil Baddoo for the time being. Some time over the summer, however, top prospect Riley Greene (foot) will claim center for himself once he's healthy and the Tigers decide he's ready for his big-league debut.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Joins active roster

Cameron was recalled by the Tigers on Friday. Cameron will replace starting pitcher Casey Mize, who landed on the injured list with a sprained right elbow. His stay on the roster may be a brief one, as Derek Hill (hamstring) could return soon. Cameron has hit just .194/.259/.325 through 52 career major-league games.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Starting in center Saturday

Cameron is starting in center field and batting seventh in Saturday's game against the Royals. Kansas City is starting lefty Kris Bubic, so the Tigers will shift Akil Baddoo and Austin Meadows to the bench, opening up a spot for Cameron in center. The 25-year-old just joined the MLB roster Friday and hasn't recorded an at-bat yet this season.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Won't make Opening Day club

The Tigers optioned Cameron to Triple-A Toledo on Monday. Cameron turned in an .820 OPS over his eight spring games heading into Monday, but that solid showing over a small sample wasn't enough to override what's been a rather unremarkable body of work at the MLB level over parts of the past two seasons. In 174 career MLB plate appearances, Cameron has produced a .194/.259/.325 slash line with a 32.8 percent strikeout rate. The Tigers will let him play on an everyday basis at Toledo to begin the 2022 campaign, but he should be near the top of the list for a promotion if the big club needs another outfielder at any point.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Has big game Saturday

Cameron went 3-for-3 with a solo home run and two RBI in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Pirates. Cameron is likely looking at a reserve outfield role at best to begin the season, as the Tigers have the likes of Robbie Grossman, Akil Baddoo and top prospect Riley Greene as potential starters. Cameron didn't do much to earn more playing time in 2021, posting a .194/.278/.359 slash line across 35 games, so a good spring would help his standing in the organization.

The expectations have settled for Daz Cameron

It is not entirely fair to place the burden of trades gone wrong on acquired prospects, but it is impossible for Detroit Tigers fans to hear the names Daz Cameron, Jake Rogers, and Franklin Pérez and not shake their heads in disappointment. Trading Justin Verlander became an inevitability back in 2017, but to have none of the returning pieces looking anything close to even a regular starter makes it that much harder to accept. We’ll continue our series on the Tigers depth pieces for 2022 with a look at Cameron’s chances of finally making an impact.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Homers in season finale

Cameron went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and two strikeouts in Sunday's 5-2 win over the White Sox. Cameron split time between Triple-A Toledo and the major-league club this year, but he started each of the final three games of the regular season and recorded hits in each of those appearances. The 24-year-old played in 35 big-league games during the 2021 campaign and hit .194 with four homers, 16 runs, 13 RBI and six stolen bases.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Out of lineup

Cameron is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Royals, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports. Cameron started a pair of games in right field but will now retreat to the bench despite the fact that he went 3-for-5 with two walks and a steal in those games. Akil Baddoo, Victor Reyes and Robbie Grossman will be the outfielders for the Tigers.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Records three hits Tuesday

Cameron went 3-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the White Sox. Cameron was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Sunday, and Tuesday's hits were his first at the MLB level since the end of August. The 24-year-old outfielder could see some semi-regular playing time down the stretch with Derek Hill (knee) on the injured list, though Victor Reyes, who recorded four hits himself Tuesday, could also see a larger role.

Tigers' Daz Cameron: Draws second straight start

Cameron will start in right field and bat seventh Tuesday against the White Sox. Cameron will pick up a second straight start after going 0-for-2 with a walk in Monday's 4-3 win, which marked the 24-year-old's first appearance for the big club since Aug. 28. With Derek Hill sent to miss the remainder of the season with a sprained knee, Cameron and Victor Reyes are expected to work in a timeshare for the remaining spot in Detroit's everyday outfield alongside regulars Akil Baddoo and Robbie Grossman.
