Nationals' Jeimer Candelario: Replaces Guerrero on WBC roster
Candelario has replaced Vladimir Guerrero on the Dominican Republic's roster for the World Baseball Classic.
Candelario will join the Dominican Republic team after Guerrero had to withdraw from the roster due to knee trouble. The 29-year-old joined the Nationals after a disappointing 2022 season with the Tigers that saw him register a .633 OPS, 13 homers and a 129:28 K:BB over 467 plate appearances. He'll likely be a bench bat for the loaded DR lineup during the tournament.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Jeimer Candelario: Signs with Nationals
Candelario and the Nationals agreed to a one-year, $5 million deal Tuesday, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Candelario was non-tendered by the Tigers after a down season in 2022, which saw him hit just .217/.272/.361 with 13 homers. He's found himself in a great spot to try to launch a bounceback campaign, as his primary competition for playing time at third base will be Carter Kieboom, a career .197/304/.285 hitter who missed most of last season due to Tommy John surgery. A better 2023 for Candelario isn't too tough to envision, as he hit a strong .278/.356/.458 across the 2020 and 2021 seasons.... See More ... See Less
Jeimer Candelario: Becomes free agent
The Tigers declined to tender Candelario a contract for 2023.
Candelario finally enjoyed some success against big-league pitching in 2021, smacking 42 doubles with a .794 OPS, but it all came crashing back down for him in 2022.

Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Sits again Saturday
Candelario remains on the bench for Saturday's game against the Twins.
Candelario's age-28 season has been a disappointing one, as his .210/.267/.360 slash line (78 wRC+) represents a significant drop from the .278/.356/.458 line (125 wRC+) he managed over the previous two years. He'll sit for the second straight game, with Brendon Davis getting the nod at third base.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Heads to bench
Candelario will sit Thursday against the Twins.

Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Perfect day at plate
Candelario went 4-for-4 with two doubles and one run scored in Tuesday's victory over Baltimore.
Candelario was perfect at the dish Tuesday as he recorded a hit in all four at-bats, two of which went for extra bases.

He's slashing .209/.266/.359 on the season.... See More ... See Less

Candelario is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Royals.
Candelario gets Sunday off after starting at the hot corner Saturday, with Ryan Kreidler taking over.
