Player Outlook
A bat-first infielder without a natural position, Colt Keith is a career .303 hitter in the minors and established himself as one of the best offensive-minded prospects in the game while splitting time between Double-A and Triple-A. He slashed .306/.380/.552 with 27 home runs and a 21.0 K% in 126 games across the top two levels of the minors but never got the call to the majors in his age-21 season. Generally a pull hitter who has steadily cut his groundball rate (below 35% at Double-A and Triple-A), Keith logged an excellent 34 percent hard-hit rate in the minors and should be able to produce enough at the plate to make up for his shaky defense. He saw 35 starts at second base and 20 starts at third base while at Triple-A, but he played more total games at third base when factoring in his Double-A usage, so he should enter the year eligible at third base with a chance to add second-base eligibility in season. The fact he didn't get the call last season led to some uncertainty about whether he would open 2024 on the big-league roster, but the six-year extension he signed with Detroit in January means he'll likely be in the big leagues Opening Day.

  • Tigers' Colt Keith: Homers in win

  • Tigers' Colt Keith: Idle versus lefty

    Keith isn't in the Tigers' lineup for Saturday's game against the Blue Jays. Left-hander Yusei Kikuchi will toe the slab for Toronto on Saturday, meaning the lefty-hitting Keith will begin the game on the bench. Andy Ibanez will get the nod at second base while batting leadoff.

  • Tigers' Colt Keith: Huge performance in win

    Keith went 3-for-4 with a home run and four RBI in Saturday's 11-9 extra-inning win over the Dodgers. Keith hit a two-run double in the second inning, singled in the sixth and then tied the game on a two-run home run in the ninth. The rookie might not be looking forward to the All-Star break, as he is scorching in July with six multi-hit efforts, five long balls, 13 RBI and 13 runs scored. On the year, he is hitting .253 with nine homers, 37 RBI, 35 runs scored and five steals across 313 plate appearances.

  • Tigers' Colt Keith: Not starting vs. lefty

    Keith is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Dodgers. Keith has a .351/.442/.784 slash line with two triples and four homers through his first 10 games in July, but he'll sit Friday as lefty James Paxton takes the mound for Los Angeles. Andy Ibanez will man the keystone and bat leadoff in the series opener.

  • Tigers' Colt Keith: Triples, scores twice in win

    Keith went 1-for-2 with a walk, a triple, an RBI and two runs scored in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Guardians. Keith continues to chug along as he extended his hitting streak to eight games. During that stretch, the rookie has batted .419 with six extra-base hits. After looking shaky to start the season, Keith now appears to be a solid fantasy contributor, and fantasy mangers should jump on the 22-year-old if he's still available in their leagues given his recent performance and considerable upside.

  • Tigers' Colt Keith: Goes deep again Tuesday

    Keith 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and two additional runs scored in Tuesday's 9-8, 10-inning loss to the Guardians. It's hard to believe that Keith was batting just .154 with no home runs at the end of April, as the rookie has turned it on since then. In 55 games from May onward, Keith is batting .294 with eight long balls and 27 RBI, and he has four homers and seven RBI over the last six contests alone. The 22-year-old was a high-upside prospect in the minors and he's starting to deliver on that promise in the majors, much to the delight of fantasy managers.

  • Tigers' Colt Keith: Tallies two hits, swipes base

    Keith went 2-for-4 with a walk and an RBI in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Reds. He also stole a base. Keith extended his hitting streak to five games, and he's gone 9-for-21 during the stretch with three home runs and a stolen base. The 22-year-old is starting to settle in at the MLB level offensively, plus he's running a bit more than anticipated, as he never stole more than four bases in a season during his time in the minors. Keith is still known more for his power than his speed, but any contribution in the steals category is a welcome bonus.

  • Tigers' Colt Keith: Goes deep twice Friday

    Keith went 2-for-5 with two home runs and three total RBI in Friday's 5-4 win over the Reds. Keith hit a solo blast in the third inning, then followed that up with a two-run shot in the fifth. The 22-year-old now has seven home runs this season, with four of them coming in the last 10 games. During that stretch, he's batting .286 with a .945 OPS. Keith seems to be delivering on his prospect potential after a slow start to the year, and he could be a difference maker in fantasy leagues the rest of the way if he keeps this up.

  • Tigers' Colt Keith: Goes deep in blowout loss

    Keith went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's 12-3 loss to the Twins, which was called after seven innings due to rain. Keith was a bright spot for the Tigers on an ugly afternoon in Minneapolis. The young second baseman now has consecutive multi-hit efforts, and he's tripled and gone deep during the stretch. Overall, Keith has been so-so this year with a .236 average and .620 OPS, though he's been better from May onward after a rough first month in the majors. There's still potential for a big finish from the 22-year-old rookie.

    Keith went 4-for-6 with a solo home run and a double in Saturday's 13-5 win over the Astros. Keith tacked on the final run of the game with a homer in the ninth inning. The infielder had struggled early in June, going 4-for-30 over his previous 10 games, though he's racked up seven hits across his last three contests. He's rarely been a source of power in 2024 -- Keith has just three homers, seven doubles and a .315 slugging percentage while batting .235 over 61 games.

  • Tigers' Colt Keith: Making return to lineup

    Keith (knee) will start at second base and bat fifth in Wednesday's game against the Nationals. Keith will slot back in at the keystone after he was excluded from the starting nine in both of the past two games, though he appeared off the bench and went hitless in his lone at-bat in Tuesday's 5-4 extra-inning loss. The rookie got off to a rough start to the season but seems to have turned the corner since mid-May, as he's slashing .286/.324/.414 over a stretch of 22 games.

  • Tigers' Colt Keith: Removed from game after collision

    Keith was removed from Saturday's game against the Brewers in the third inning after colliding with Akil Baddoo while tracking down a flyball, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Keith was running full speed toward the foul line in right field and collided with Akil Baddoo as the ball dropped. The second baseman looked to be grabbing at his left leg before walking back to the dugout unassisted. Zach McKinstry replaced Keith at second base.

  • Tigers' Colt Keith: Goes deep Friday

    Keith went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's 7-3 loss to the Red Sox. Keith connected for his second home run of the season in the eighth inning against Boston reliever Greg Weissert. After a slow start to the year, the rookie had a torrid May, slashing .342/.388/.493 with both of his home runs and 14 RBI across 24 games. If Keith keeps up this level of performance in June and beyond, he'll be a huge fantasy asset down the stretch.
