Tigers purchased the contract of OF Tyler Collins from Double-A Erie.

Collins earned an Opening Day roster spot by posting an .879 OPS in 59 plate appearances this spring. He made some noise last year at Double-A, but the 23-year-old is doubtful to be fantasy-relevant in 2014.

Tyler Collins currently projects to make the Tigers' Opening Day roster.

Collins has slowed down after getting off to a hot start this spring, but he's in position to make the Opening Day roster assuming the Tigers don't make a last-minute move. The 23-year-old has never played above Double-A.

Tyler Collins, who has been talked up as a left field possibility for the Tigers, went 0-for-4 on Sunday and is 1-for-11 in his last four games.

Collins is still slugging .692 in 39 at-bats for the spring, but if he keeps slumping, any possibility of him making the Tigers will evaporate. That'd be for the best anyway; Collins spent last year in high-A ball and needs to open this season in Double-A.
Mar 23 - 4:58 PM

Tyler Collins tripled and doubled in his two at-bats off the bench Friday to help the Tigers edge the Braves 2-1.

Collins, 22, hit .290/.371/.429 at Single-A Lakeland last season and is due to move up to Double-A. The 2011 sixth-round pick does a little bit of everything at the plate and is one of the Tigers' top position prospects. Still, he's going to need to turn some of last year's doubles into homers if he's going to make it as a regular in an outfield corner.
