Reds' Buck Farmer: Re-signs on MiLB deal
Farmer elected free agency after being outrighted to Triple-A Louisville on Monday and re-signed with the Reds on a minor-league deal, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
After going unclaimed off waivers when he was recently designated for assignment, Farmer had the option of refusing the assignment to the minors since he's accrued just over five years of big-league service time. He quickly re-signed with the Reds and will report to Triple-A, as he presumably recognizes that the Cincinnati organization might be able to offer him a clearer path to returning to the big leagues than another one. Before being dropped from the 40-man roster, Farmer turned in a 6.75 ERA and 1.83 WHIP in 12 innings out of the Cincinnati bullpen this season.... See More ... See Less

Reds' Buck Farmer: Reaches deal with Reds
Farmer agreed Wednesday with the Reds on a minor-league contract, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
Farmer has spent parts of each of the past eight seasons in the majors with the Tigers, logging a collective 5.33 ERA and 1.52 WHIP across 241 appearances (21 starts). He's working exclusively as a reliever at this stage of his career, and his limited success at the big-league level in 2021 resulted in the Tigers designating him for assignment on two occasions before releasing him last August. He then caught on with the Rangers on a minor-league deal, turning in a 3.60 ERA over 15 innings with Triple-A Round Rock before electing free agency earlier in the offseason. The Reds will likely give Farmer the chance to compete for a spot in their Opening Day bullpen, but the prevailing expectation is that he'll head to Triple-A Louisville to begin the season....

Buck Farmer: Jettisoned by Tigers
Farmer was released by the Tigers on Tuesday.
Farmer passed through waivers unclaimed and will now have to search for a new suitor on his own, likely on a minor-league deal. The 30-year-old struggled to a 6.37 ERA this season while walking 12.3 percent of opposing batters. He now owns a career 5.33 ERA in parts of eight seasons at the highest level.... See More ...

Farmer was designated for assignment Saturday, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.
This marks the second time this season that the Tigers designated Farmer for assignment, and it seems probable that he will once again remain in the organization. He has a 6.37 ERA, 1.73 WHIP and 37 strikeouts in 35.1 innings this season.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Buck Farmer: Back in big leagues
The Tigers selected Farmer's contract from Triple-A Toledo on Sunday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
He'll be joining the bullpen as a replacement for Beau Burrows, who was optioned to Triple-A after Saturday's 15-2 loss to the White Sox. Farmer owns an unremarkable 3.97 ERA and 1.35 WHIP at Triple-A this season, but he's been excellent over his last four outings, allowing no runs on three hits and no walks over 6.1 innings....

Farmer cleared waivers Tuesday and was outrighted to Triple-A Toledo.
Farmer was designated for assignment Friday. It's no surprise he passed through waivers unclaimed, as he owns a 12.66 ERA and 2.25 WHIP through 10.2 innings this season.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Buck Farmer: Designated for assignment
Farmer was designated for assignment by the Tigers on Friday.
Farmer had been with the team since Opening Day but struggled through 12 relief appearances. He owns a 12.66 ERA and 2.25 WHIP through 10.2 innings, walking 16.1 percent of opposing batters while striking out just 17.9 percent. As a 30-year-old with a career 5.47 ERA, there's seemingly a good chance he passes through waivers and remains a part of the Tigers' organization.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Buck Farmer: Hit hard again Monday
Farmer allowed three runs on a hit and three walks across 1.2 innings in Monday's 15-6 loss to the Twins. He struck out one.
No Detroit pitcher had much luck in the blowout loss, and Farmer served up a solo home run to Nelson Cruz as part of his rough outing. Through two appearances this season, the righty has allowed five earned runs in just 2.2 innings of work. Farmer should ultimately settle in as one of the Tigers' more reliable relief options, but he's unlikely to have a ton of fantasy appeal in his role.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Buck Farmer: Hit hard again Wednesday
Farmer allowed four runs on three hits and a walk while retiring just two batters in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Phillies. He struck out one.
Farmer allowed two home runs, and he now has a 30.86 ERA across 2.1 innings this spring. The righty is potentially in the mix to close, though he likely projects as more of a setup option. A sluggish performance in the Grapefruit League won't help him move up the bullpen pecking order.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Buck Farmer: Could be a closer option
Farmer is one of several options to close out games for the Tigers to begin the season, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Farmer has been a steady if not spectacular bullpen option for the Tigers, recording a 3.74 ERA across the past two seasons. He's ostensibly a potential closer for new manager A.J. Hinch, but the more likely scenario is that he settles into a more familiar setup role in front of someone like Gregory Soto or Bryan Garcia.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Buck Farmer: Signs one-year contract
Farmer and the Tigers agreed to terms on a one-year, $1.85 million deal Friday, avoiding arbitration, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Farmer posted his second straight season of competent relief work in 2020, following up his 3.72 ERA from the previous season with a 3.80 mark over 21.1 innings. A big drop in his strikeout rate from 25.3 percent to 15.7 percent casts some doubt on his ability to repeat that number in 2021, however.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Buck Farmer: Struggles but wraps up win
Farmer allowed three earned runs on four hits in the ninth inning of Wednesday's 7-6 win over the Cubs.
Farmer entered in a non-save situation with the Tigers up 7-3, but he quickly got into trouble, starting the frame by allowing four straight hits. He almost gave up a go-ahead home run on a fifth straight hit, but Anthony Rizzo's deep fly was caught right in front of the center field wall. Farmer wiggled out of the jam from there, retiring Javier Baez and Kyle Schwarber to end the game. Manager Ron Gardenhire said after the game that Joe Jimenez is no longer the closer, and Farmer, Gregory Soto and Jose Cisnero are expected to split save chances going forward based on matchups, per Chris McCosky of The Detroit News....
