Flexen allowed three runs on six hits and a walk with three strikeouts in six innings versus Detroit on Wednesday. He did not factor in the decision.
The right-hander earned a quality start, his fourth in 11 outings this year. Flexen has bee adequate as a No. 5 starter with a 4.68 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 36:12 K:BB across 59.2 innings this season, although inconsistency has been an issue for the 26-year-old at times. He lines up for a favorable matchup at home against Minnesota next week.
