Moya, Marte, Krol, Wilson expected to join Tigers Tuesday (updated with Fields DFA)

The next round of Tigers September call-ups appears to be set at four players from Triple-A Toledo. Slugging outfielder Steven Moya, corner infielder Jefry Marte, left-hander Ian Krol and infielder Josh Wilson are expected to be called up Tuesday now that the Mud Hens season is over, a source told MLB.com.

Chris Iott of MLive.com first reported the expected moves among the four players Monday evening.

Meanwhile, neither right-hander Michael Fulmer nor outfielder Wynton Bernard are expected to be called up from Double-A Erie, according to sources.

Moya, Marte and Krol are all on the 40-man roster. Josh Wilson is not. To open a spot, the Tigers designated outfielder Daniel Fields for assignment, a source confirmed Tuesday morning.

Of the four expected call-ups, Moya is the only one who hasn’t been up yet this season. The top prospect in the Tigers system according to MLBPipeline.com rankings, Moya salvaged a difficult season at Triple-A Toledo by showing progress down the stretch. The big left-handed hitter batted .265 (39-for-147) from Aug. 1 on with 12 doubles, five home runs and 19 RBIs.

For the season, Moya batted .240 (120-for-500) at Toledo with 30 doubles, 20 homers, 74 RBIs, 27 walks and 162 strikeouts. He played almost exclusively right field for the Mud Hens until the final week, when he shifted over to left in a move that opens up the possibility of him competing for playing time there if the Tigers look internally this offseason to fill the corner spot opposite J.D. Martinez. For the next few weeks, he could serve as a left-handed power bat off the bench while getting some starts in left.

Marte filled in surprisingly well for an injured Miguel Cabrera in July and August, batting .250 (13-for-52) with four doubles, three home runs and seven RBIs. He batted .275 at Toledo with 25 doubles, 15 homers and 75 RBIs.

Krol has shuttled between Detroit and Toledo three times, mastering Triple-A hitters but struggling at times to attack opponents in the big leagues. He has allowed 16 earned runs on 30 hits over 21 1/3 innings, walking 13 and striking out 22.

The surprise would be Wilson, whose call would restore infield depth lost when Iglesias went on the DL. He went 8-for-21 in Detroit earlier this year, and batted .252 with three homers, 30 RBIs and 10 stolen bases for Toledo.

Was looking forward to seeing Wynton. Kinda figured he would not get the call though.

Matt Boyd is not Chris Young. I think the Tigers are misguided in thinking he can pitch up in the zone.
Lobstein is probably going to solidfy himself into the 2016 Toledo rotation in his next couple of starts.

Someone will have to explain the Daniel Fields move to me.

Giving up on Daniel Fields?
I don’t understand the rationale of removing him from the 40 man roster just to put another middle infielder on for 25 games. They got by with Romine for 137 games why the need for this move?
Fields may have had his troubles and perhaps would be unlikely to make the bigs but they have now devalued him as a trade chip.
Does this also likely mean Iggy is done for the season.

Wow–sorry Rich, I didn’t realize you were posting that too.

Giving up. They could have moved Greene to the 60 days DL , instead they are risking Fields on waivers. His time is past.

Generally speaking, the September call-ups are not very promising. And now they have given up on Fields. The other day I read the article about the top 100 prospects. I don’t recall seeing any future Tigers. Is this what it has come to? I am NOT a Cubs fan but have you noticed all of the presently successful players they have been calling up all season? It seems the Tigers don’t even have one. I hope someone can brighten this picture up and prove me wrong. Go ahead, do it!

Fields 228 .335 .367 .701 146 SO with just 7 HR
No, just conffirm,there were two Tigers prospects…with another team: Thompson and Adames
Norris was 18th but he is no longer a prospect. So , no one of the big haul is a top 100 for MLB
But prospect list does not cover players developing in Latin America in the Academies or even in Minor leagues in the States. Scout reports tend to undervalue them. Al Avila thinks Moya is underated becuase his career began in Puerto Rico.

Fields has played himself into being more suspect than prospect. injury issues last season bought him some time. for him to land on another 40 man, other teams’ scouts will have to see something fixable in his hitting approach that Tigers haven’t. Josh Wilson will get bumped from the 40 man when Tigers add young players they want to protect from Rule 5 draft

Miguel Cabrera wins the batting title.

I would have said Wynton Bernard. Apparently Josh Wilson, is too important in management’s eyes.
Individual stuff to look forward to:
I figure Ian Kinsler needs 14 or 15 more multi-hit games to reach 200 hits this season.
Another nice milestone would be 5 more dingers for JD. It is possible.
Nick hits the magic number .250 and keeps his errors to single digits.
McCann finishes over .270
Moya
Miggy hits another home-run.
Victor gets another double.
Gose steals a base.
Ausmus decides to pitch a kid instead of a Wolf (I did not say dog).
Alex Avila rediscovers his stroke by becoming a switch-hitter and ends up hitting his weight (my guess would be about .260 by now).
Jeff Jones actually “runs” back from the mound, just once.
Ian Krol gets a LHB out.

There is a lot to look forward to.

every sarcastic note was struck…well done

I’m looking forward to losing games so they can qualify for the draft. That’s how it’s done these days, right?

Sorry–it’s just been one of those years.
Interesting, what you say about the Rule 5. Do we know who some of our possible Rule 5 players are?

Fullmer for sure is one.

The draft is such a crap shoot then a long development. I’d rather see them win, but I feel your pain.

LT–if so does that mean he actually needs to be put on the 40 man to avoid being lost to a Rule 5?

Yes. he has the service time in Minor League. Ausmus talked about that a couple of weeks ago

A virtual symphony of sarcastic notes. It was moving Dan.

It started out good Marty.
Of course, then again, so did the team this year.

Who is going to be the next manager? I think they need to pick someone who has a lot of experience with small ball. That’s how you win games

Who do you guys think will be the new manager next year? They need an experienced manager that know how to play small ball
