  • Tigers' Tyler Alexander: Gets outdueled Tuesday

    Alexander (2-6) allowed just two runs on seven hits across seven innings but took the loss Tuesday against the Guardians. He had no walks and struck out two. Alexander pitched well, but his teammates offered no run support against Cleveland ace Shane Bieber. Over three starts since rejoining the rotation in late July, Alexander has a strong 3.38 ERA, but the lefty has an 0-3 record to show for it. The Detroit offense limits the upside of any starter because wins are hard to come by, though Alexander may at least be able to help with ratios if he keeps pitching like this. He's currently scheduled to start again Sunday against the White Sox and will hope for a little more offense behind him.

  • Tigers' Tyler Alexander: Takes tough-luck loss

    Alexander (2-5) allowed just two runs on two hits across five innings but took the loss Wednesday against the Twins. He walked one and struck out five. Alexander probably deserved a better fate, but Detroit's bats were stymied by Joe Ryan and four Minnesota relievers. Alexander has now made consecutive appearances as a starter, allowing four earned runs across nine innings. The lefty worked as a long reliever earlier in the season, but with Detroit dealing with several injuries in the rotation, he'll likely stick as a starter. His next outing is tentatively set for Tuesday against the Guardians.

  • Tigers' Tyler Alexander: Takes loss as starter

    Alexander (2-4) allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits across four innings to take the loss Thursday against the Blue Jays. He walked one and struck out one. Alexander was making his fifth start of the season and first since April 29. The lefty pitched decently against a strong Toronto lineup, but he was limited to just 69 pitches across four innings of work. With Michael Pineda (triceps) hitting the injured list last weekend, Alexander will likely stick in the rotation for the time being and might be able to build up his pitch count moving forward. He's tentatively lines up to take the mound again Wednesday against the Twins.

  • Tigers' Tyler Alexander: Receives another start

    Alexander is slated to start Thursday's series opener in Toronto, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports. When Alexander was reinstated from the 15-day injured list in mid-June, the Tigers initially used him in a relief role, but an assortment of injuries to other starting pitchers has prompted manager A.J. Hinch to move the lefty back into the bullpen. Alexander made his fourth start of the season coming out of the All-Star break and acquitted himself well last Thursday against the Blue Jays, tossing three scoreless frames and allowing one baserunner before turning the game over to the bullpen. Since he's not yet fully stretched back out, Alexander could be on a limited pitch count in his rematch Thursday with Toronto.

  • Tigers' Tyler Alexander: Set to return to rotation

    Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said Alexander is expected to start Thursday's contest against the Blue Jays, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports. Alexander will join the rotation as a replacement for Michael Pineda (triceps), who went on the 15-day injured list Sunday. The 28-year-old Alexander has produced a 4.05 ERA and 1.29 WHIP with 18 strikeouts over 33.1 innings in 14 appearances, including four starts with the Tigers this season. Hinch said that the team is taking it start-by-start with Alexander for now, making it possible that the lefty only makes one turn through the rotation before returning to the bullpen.

  • Tigers' Tyler Alexander: Pitches well Saturday

    Alexander pitched three scoreless innings of relief in Saturday's loss to the Twins. He allowed one hit and had no walks or strikeouts. Detroit starter Michael Pineda left the game after three innings due to a triceps issue, so Alexander was needed to cover the middle part of the game. The lefty did his job, notching his seventh scoreless appearance over his last 10 games. During that stretch, Alexander has a 1.29 ERA and 1.00 WHIP across 21 innings. Depending on Pineda's status moving forward, Alexander could find himself shifting into the rotation.

  • Tigers' Tyler Alexander: Detroit-Cleveland postponed Sunday

    Alexander and the Tigers won't face the Guardians on Sunday after the game was postponed due to inclement weather in Cleveland. Alexander had been scheduled to make his fifth start of the season Sunday in what would have been a bullpen day for the Tigers, but the postponement ends up thwarting those plans. The two teams are scheduled to make up the postponed contest Aug. 15 in a traditional doubleheader.

  • Tigers' Tyler Alexander: Starting bullpen game

    Alexander will be the first pitcher on the mound in what's expected to be a bullpen game Sunday against the Guardians, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports. Alexander does have starting experience, as he's started 29 games at the big-league level in his career, but he's not expeced to pitch too deep into Sunday's contest. He's topped out at 3.2 innings over his last 12 appearances, and the Tigers should be able to use plenty of relievers with a three-day break coming up after Sunday's game.

  • Tigers' Tyler Alexander: Continues to pitch well

    Alexander, who allowed one run across 3.1 innings of relief in Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against the Royals, has a 1.06 ERA across his last eight appearances. The run actually snapped a streak of six straight scoreless outings for Alexander. The lefty has allowed just two runs across 17 innings since returning from the injured list June 13. He's still working in a long-relief role for the time being, but the Tigers could give Alexander a shot in the rotation at some point, as he made 15 starts a season ago. The team currently has Tarik Skubal, Beau Brieske, Michael Pineda and Drew Hutchison as healthy starters on the roster, with Alex Faedo optioned to Triple-A following his start in Monday's nightcap.

  • Tigers' Tyler Alexander: Earns win in relief Monday

    Alexander (2-3) worked around two hits to toss 3.1 scoreless innings and earn the win in Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against the Guardians. He had no walks or strikeouts. Alexander came on in the fourth inning when starter Alex Faedo departed with right hip soreness. The lefty reliever did a nice job, and he earned his second win of the season after the Tigers rallied for the 5-3 win. Alexander has a 4.56 ERA this season, but he's been much better since returning from the injured list last month. Across 13.1 innings following his return, he has a miniscule 0.68 ERA.

  • Tigers' Tyler Alexander: Scoops up first win

    Alexander (1-3) tossed two scoreless innings of relief to earn the win Saturday against the Diamondbacks. He allowed a hit and a walk while striking out one. Following four innings from starter Alex Faedo, Alexander navigated the fifth and sixth. The lefty pitched well, and he's starting to look better after a rough start to the season. Alexander had an 8.76 ERA across 12.1 innings before landing on the injured list in early May with a left elbow sprain. Since returning June 13, he has a 1.13 ERA and 0.88 WHIP over eight innings of work. Alexander was a valuable pitcher for the Tigers in 2021, registering a 3.81 ERA across 41 appearances (15 starts), and he may be returning to that form in 2022.

  • Tigers' Tyler Alexander: Activated from IL

    Alexander (elbow) was activated from the 15-day injured list following Monday's game against the White Sox, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports. Alexander remains a candidate to start Tuesday's matchup, though the club has yet to announce official pitching plans. Drew Hutchison's contract was selected from Triple-A Toledo, so he may also be in the mix for a start. Alexander last toed the rubber April 29 against the Dodgers, giving up four runs on three hits and two walks while fanning one over 2.1 frames.

  • Tigers' Tyler Alexander: Could start Tuesday

    Alexander (elbow) could come off the injured list to make a spot start Tuesday against the White Sox, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. Tuesday will amount to a bullpen game for the Tigers either way, and it's unclear if Alexander will be a part of that or if he will head to Triple-A Toledo for a rehab assignment.

  • Tigers' Tyler Alexander: Slated for more rehab appearances

    Alexander (elbow) will make rehab appearances at Triple-A Toledo on Friday and Saturday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Alexander struck out one in two perfect relief innings Tuesday, and his pair of rehab appearances as a reliever this weekend will likely be the final step in his recovery prior to rejoining the major-league club. The southpaw will serve as a multi-inning bridge reliever once he's reinstated from the injured list, and it seems likely that he'll be back with the Tigers early next week.

  • Tigers' Tyler Alexander: Returning from IL as reliever

    Manager A.J. Hinch said Thursday that Alexander (elbow) will serve as a multi-inning bridge reliever once he's deemed ready to return from the 15-day injured list, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports. Even though Alexander looks on track to beat each of the other five starting pitchers sidelined with injuries back from the IL, the Tigers are apparently content to have younger arms like Alex Faedo, Beau Brieske and Elvin Rodriguez fill out the back end of the rotation. After Alexander gave up five runs over three innings in his first rehab start for Triple-A Toledo last weekend, Hinch said the lefty is scheduled to throw another two innings Saturday for Toledo. The Tigers then plan to have Alexander make another two-inning appearance for Toledo early next week before bringing him back from the IL.

  • Tigers' Tyler Alexander: Works three frames in rehab game

    Alexander (elbow) was charged with five earned runs on six hits and a walk while striking out two over three innings in his first rehab start Monday at Triple-A Toledo. Pitching in a game for the first time since April 29 after being sidelined with a left elbow sprain, Alexander wasn't particularly sharp, with Tigers manager A.J. Hinch noting that the southpaw had "a couple bad changeups," per Evan Petzold of The Detroit Free Press. Alexander at least displayed decent control during the outing, pumping in 36 of his 51 pitches for strikes. He's scheduled to make his second rehab start with Toledo on Saturday, and Hinch said that he wants Alexander to get stretched out to around 90 pitches before he's activated from the 15-day injured list and reinstalled in the big-league rotation. With that in mind, Alexander could need a third rehab start prior to being reinstated.

  • Tigers' Tyler Alexander: Nearing rehab assignment

    Alexander (elbow) is expected to make a rehab start at Triple-A Toledo on Monday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Alexander had been limited to throwing off flat ground recently, but he's made good progress over the last week and threw two innings against live hitters Tuesday. The southpaw has been on the injured list since May 2, and it's not yet clear how many rehab starts he'll require prior to rejoining the Tigers.

  • Tigers' Tyler Alexander: Not yet throwing off mound

    Alexander (elbow) has been limited to throwing on flat ground since landing on the 15-day injured list May 2, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. Alexander is one of five Tigers starting pitchers currently on the IL, and Eduardo Rodriguez (side) will make it six when the team deactivates him at some point before Friday's game in Cleveland. Though Alexander didn't enter the season as a major rotation piece for Detroit, his absence due to the left elbow sprain looms large with so many other key arms also on the mend. Since he has yet to graduate to throwing off a mound since being shelved more than two weeks ago, Alexander appears unlikely to return until June at the soonest.

  • Tigers' Tyler Alexander: MRI comes back clean

    Alexander (elbow) recently underwent an MRI that came back clean, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports. Alexander landed on the 15-day injured list Monday due to a left elbow sprain, but it's encouraging that he doesn't appear to be dealing with any structural damage. The southpaw had been pitching through pain for about a month, and it impacted his mechanics and may have contributed to his 8.76 ERA and 1.78 WHIP in 12.1 innings over his first four starts of the year. Although the results of his MRI brought good news, a timetable for Alexander's return isn't yet known.

  • Tigers' Tyler Alexander: Goes on IL with elbow sprain

    The Tigers placed Alexander on the 15-day injured list Monday with a left elbow sprain, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports. The move was made retroactive to Saturday, the day Alexander last pitched. He surrendered four runs over 2.1 innings in a loss to the Dodgers that day, giving up two home runs while walking two and striking out one. The 27-year-old has posted a 8.76 ERA and 1.78 WHIP over 12.1 innings this season. The Tigers have yet to announce a replacement for Alexander in the rotation, though they won't have much flexibility with Casey Mize (elbow) and Matt Manning (shoulder) already on the IL.
