Tigers' Buck Farmer: Working as starter this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farmer will stretch out as a starter in spring training, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Farmer made 20 starts at Triple-A Toledo last season, but he was primarily used as a reliever with the MLB club. The Detroit rotation will likely consist of Justin Verlander, Michael Fulmer, Jordan Zimmermann, Daniel Norris and Matt Boyd when camp breaks, meaning Farmer could start the year in Toledo again. He provides depth should other starters struggle or go down to injury.

Tigers' Buck Farmer: Goes five innings in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Farmer (0-1) went five innings allowing four runs on four hits, four walks, and two strikeouts in a spot start against the Indians on Monday. He took the loss.

Farmer threw just 51 of 91 pitches for strikes Monday, walking four in his first official start of the season. Farmer threw 2.2 innings in a start last Wednesday, but the game was wiped out by extended rain, and was completely restarted the next day. Control has been an issue for Farmer out of the bullpen as well, as he entered Monday with a 5.9 BB/9. His ERA climbed to 4.60 with the start, and his WHIP is now 1.53.

Tigers' Buck Farmer: Confirmed as Monday's starter
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Farmer will start Monday's series opener against the Indians, Matthew Mowery of the Oakland Press reports.

This was fully expected after Farmer's last outing was shortened by rain after just 2.2 innings and wiped from the books. Farmer has a 3.96 ERA and 93:28 K:BB over 20 Triple-A starts (100 innings) this year, but has been solely used out of the bullpen in the big leagues. He will make the start on normal rest, but is not guaranteed another start before the season ends. It's possible that he could start Saturday against the Braves, but if Jordan Zimmermann gets his mechanics straightened out in time, that would be his start.

Tigers' Buck Farmer: Start shortened by rain, stats wiped
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farmer's outing lasted just 2.2 innings Wednesday against the Twins due to rain, allowing just one hit.

Unfortunately, the stats will be wiped from the books, meaning owners won't reap any benefits from the shortened outing. Anibal Sanchez will receive the start for the Tigers in Game 1 of a doubleheader against the Twins.

Tigers' Buck Farmer: Starting Wednesday vs. Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farmer will start Wednesday's game in Minnesota, MLive's Evan Woodberry reports.

His move to the rotation will send Anibal Sanchez and Mike Pelfrey to the bullpen, at least for now. Farmer has a 4.32 ERA and 10:7 K:BB in 8.1 innings of relief since being recalled at the start of September, and his career 10.09 ERA in 30.1 innings as a big league starter make it awfully tough to trust him, even in a solid matchup Wednesday.
