  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Shut down for season

    Faedo will miss the rest of the season after undergoing a procedure Wednesday to repair his right middle fingernail, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Faedo underwent a procedure to remove a portion of the same fingernail earlier this season. He landed on the injured list last Tuesday due to a blister on his finger and had a slim chance of returning for the final game of the year, but he will now shift his focus to getting ready for the start of next season. Faedo finishes 2023 with a 4.45 ERA and 1.05 WHIP alongside a 58:20 K:BB through 64.2 innings.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Shines in pair of relief outings

    Faedo has worked out of the Detroit bullpen in his last two appearances Sept. 9 against the White Sox and Wednesday against the Reds, covering five scoreless innings while striking out six and allowing just one hit and two walks.

    Faedo has made just one of his four appearances in September as a starter, though the Tigers aren't yet dropping the right-hander from the rotation. Though he excelled in long relief of Tarik Skubal and Eduardo Rodriguez his last two times out, Faedo will likely end up serving as more of a bulk reliever Tuesday against the Dodgers. Miguel Diaz is slated to open the game and pitch an inning or two, and since he'll be available on five days' rest, Faedo looks like the most logical choice to serve as a primary pitcher out of the bullpen.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Lands on IL

    The Tigers placed Faedo on the 15-day injured list Tuesday with a right finger blister.

    Faedo's move to the injured list is retroactive to Sunday, which leaves just enough room for him to return for the final game of the season Oct. 1. In the meantime, Brendan White will come up from Triple-A Toledo to fill Faedo's roster spot.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Doesn't last long in start

    Faedo allowed one run on three hits across 2.2 innings and didn't factor into the decision Tuesday against the Yankees. He walked one and struck out four.

    Faedo was actually fairly effective after allowing a leadoff home run to DJ LeMahieu, but the righty was limited to 40 pitches in his first start in nine days. The Tigers had said Faedo was slated for a multi-inning relief role down the stretch, but he's apparently still in the mix for some spot starts, with his next one potentially set for Sunday against the White Sox. Due to his middling performance so far and lack of a definitive rotation role, the 27-year-old can probably be avoided in most fantasy formats for now.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Starting on Tuesday

    Faedo will start for the Tigers on Tuesday against the Yankees, Evan Woodbery of reports.

    We're less than a week removed from the Tigers saying Faedo would be used in a multi-inning relief role for a while, but they've evidently already reversed course. Faedo has put up a 4.89 ERA over 12 appearances (11 starts) for Detroit this season. With Faedo getting the start, it could be Joey Wentz shifting to relief.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Slated for multi-inning relief role

    Faedo will be used in a multi-inning relief role with the Tigers for the time being, Evan Woodbery of reports.

    It's possible Faedo will get a start or two in September if the situation dictates it, but for now the Tigers will see how he fares in a multi-inning bullpen role. He and Joey Wentz could piggyback for some outings in the coming weeks. Faedo holds a 4.98 ERA over 11 starts for Detroit this season.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Shaky command in loss

    Faedo (2-5) took the loss Sunday against the Astros after allowing three runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out two in 4.2 innings.

    Faedo actually pitched well in comparison to who followed him as the Tigers wound up losing 17-4 with 14 of those runs coming in the final three innings. The 27-year-old surrendered a two-run blast to Kyle Tucker in the third and two singles and two walks plated another run for the Astros in the fourth. Faedo was unable to secure a win in any of his four outings in August and only lasted five innings twice, but he's topped 90 pitches in each of his last two starts and will look to bounce back in a matchup with the White Sox his next time out.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Pitches well in no-decision

    Faedo tossed five scoreless innings but settled for a no-decision Tuesday against the Twins. He allowed just one hit, a walk and a hit batter while striking out six.

    Making his second straight start against Minnesota since getting recalled from Triple-A Toledo, Faedo was very sharp, though the Tigers didn't push him too hard as they limited the righty to 81 pitches. Faedo still left with a chance to earn his third win of the year, but the Detroit bullpen allowed five runs in the eventual 5-3 loss. The 27-year-old should stick in the rotation moving forward, and he will look to build on this promising outing and continue to chip away at his 5.16 ERA. Faedo is tentatively set to start again Sunday against the Guardians.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Goes 4.2 innings in return

    Faedo did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing three runs on four hits and two walks over 4.2 innings against the Twins. He struck out five.

    All the damage against Faedo came in the third inning on homers by Carlos Correa and Joey Gallo. The 27-year-old right-hander was solid otherwise, though he'd depart in the fifth inning after throwing 85 pitches. Overall, Faedo is 2-4 this season with a 5.80 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 35:10 K:BB across eight starts (40.1 innings). He figures to stay in the rotation following Michael Lorenzen's trade to Philadelphia. Faedo's next start is tentatively lined up as a rematch with the Twins on the road.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Recalled, likely starting Wednesday

    Detroit recalled Faedo from Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday.

    Faedo looks poised to slot into the Tigers' starting rotation Wednesday against the Twins. The 27-year-old right-hander has struggled to a 5.80 ERA in 35.2 innings (seven starts) this season at the major-league level and makes for a risky fantasy streaming option.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Sent back to Triple-A

    The Tigers optioned Faedo to Triple-A Toledo on Monday.

    Though he was called up from Toledo on Sunday to make what amounted to a spot start versus the Padres, Faedo continued to make a case for a more permanent place in the Detroit rotation. Faedo blanked the Padres over six innings while issuing four walks and allowing one hit, lowering his WHIP to 1.04 through seven starts in the big leagues this season. While the stellar performance wasn't enough for Faedo to stick around in Detroit, he'll likely be first in line for a promotion if the Tigers lose another starter to the injured list or if rookie Reese Olson's struggles in his most recent start carry over to his upcoming outings.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Blanks San Diego in return

    Faedo (2-4) earned the win Sunday, allowing one hit and four walks over six scoreless innings against San Diego. He struck out two.

    It was an impressive performance from Faedo, who allowed seven runs over just 3.2 innings in his last major-league outing against Toronto earlier this month. The 27-year-old right-hander struggled with command a bit Sunday, walking four, though he was able to keep the Padres off the board, allowing just one hit while inducing three double plays. Faedo has shown some promise this season, though he still sports a 5.80 ERA despite an impressive 1.04 WHIP and 30:8 K:BB. While he was called up to make a spot start Sunday, the Tigers could elect to give Faedo another look in the rotation following his strong outing.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Scheduled for Sunday's start

    Faedo will be recalled to start Sunday's game against San Diego, Evan Woodbery of reports.

    Faedo has struggled to a 6.98 ERA in six big-league starts this season, though his ERA estimators -- in particular his 3.92 SIERA -- tell a different story. His combination of an average strikeout rate (23.0 percent) and an excellent walk rate (3.3 percent) should in theory lead to better results in the future, though it's unclear whether he'll get the chance to remain in the rotation for more than one start.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Called up ahead of start

    The Tigers recalled Faedo from Triple-A Toledo ahead of his scheduled start Sunday versus the Padres at Comerica Park.

    Detroit optioned reliever Brendan White to Triple-A to clear a spot on the 26-man active roster for Faedo, who has had issues with run prevention (6.98 ERA) in six starts in the majors this season despite solid underlying ratios (3.93 SIERA, 19.7 K-BB%). He'll be stepping into the Detroit rotation as a temporary sixth starter while the Tigers look to give Tarik Skubal an additional day of rest before his next scheduled outing Monday versus San Francisco. If Faedo fares well in his return to the big leagues, however, it's possible that he sticks around in the rotation as a potential replacement for rookie Reese Olson, who was blasted for five earned runs in five innings Friday versus the Padres.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Optioned to Toledo

    Faedo was optioned to Triple-A Toledo following his start against the Blue Jays on Friday.

    Faedo wasn't going to pitch again before the break after struggling through 3.2 innings on Friday, so the Tigers didn't need to keep him on the roster. He might not get the chance to reclaim his rotation spot at the start of the second half, however, as his 6.98 ERA through six starts trails Reese Olson's 4.02 ERA by a significant margin. Olson has seemingly secured the Tigers' fifth starter spot, with Faedo likely stuck waiting for an injury to open up another chance.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Reinstated from IL

    Faedo (finger) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list Friday.

    Faedo will be back in Detroit's rotation for the first time since suffering a right middle fingernail injury in late May. The right-hander has made five starts in 2023, posting a 5.54 ERA and 0.92 WHIP with 26 strikeouts over 26 innings. If he can control the long ball -- he's served up six homers this year -- positive regression should be in store for Faedo's ERA.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Struggles in return

    Faedo (1-4) took the loss Friday, allowing seven runs on six hits and two walks over 3.2 innings against the Blue Jays. He struck out two.

    Faedo was reinstated from the 15-day injured list Friday and made his first start at the big-league level since May 30, but it didn't go well. He allowed a season-high seven runs and couldn't complete the fourth inning, which ballooned his ERA to 6.98 through six appearances (29.2 innings). While Faedo's ERA is ugly, his 1.08 WHIP and 28:4 K:BB are solid, so he may be able to turn things around moving forward. The right-hander isn't scheduled to pitch again until after the All-Star break.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Rejoining rotation Friday

    Faedo (finger) will be activated from the 15-day injured list to start Friday against the Blue Jays, Jason Beck of reports.

    Faedo has been sidelined since late May following a procedure to remove his right middle fingernail but is ready to roll after one rehab start. He didn't pitch well in that rehab outing, yielding four runs on six hits and a walk over 3.1 innings. He also threw only 57 pitches and that, combined with his lengthy absence, likely means a truncated workload Friday.
