Tigers' Beau Brieske: No-decision in quality start
Brieske didn't factor into the decision during Saturday's 4-3 victory over Kansas City, allowing three runs on six hits and three walks with three strikeouts in six innings.
Brieske rebounded nicely from a two-run first-inning to permit only one more run while pitching at least six innings for the fourth time in 13 turns. He could've gone deeper with an efficient 82 pitches through the six frames, but manager A.J. Hinch opted to turn to the bullpen with his team behind and the top of Kansas City's order due up. The performance was a nice rebound from nine total runs allowed during his previous two starts, and Brieske will look to keep it going with a start projected for midweek against the White Sox....

Tigers' Beau Brieske: Chased in fourth inning
Brieske allowed five runs on five hits and three walks with two strikeouts in 3.2 innings in a no-decision versus the Diamondbacks on Sunday.
Brieske had trouble in the third inning with a solo home run from Carson Kelly and a Christian Walker sacrifice fly. The struggles continued into the fourth, as Arizona scraped together three more runs, all of which went onto Brieske's line after reliever Alex Lange allowed two inherited runners to score. The Tigers' offense bounced back to get the rookie starter off the hook, but that was the only silver lining from another ugly start. Brieske has allowed at least four runs in three of his last six outings, and he now owns a 4.55 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 43:20 K:BB through 63.1 innings in 12 starts. With two off days next week, he should have an extra day to regroup before a projected home start against the Royals.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Beau Brieske: Falls at Fenway Park
Brieske (1-6) allowed four runs on six hits across five innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Red Sox. He had no walks and struck out four.
Fenway Park is a tough place to pitch for rookies, though Brieske looked OK through three innings with just one run allowed. Things were a bit more dicey in the fourth, when he allowed two singles followed by a three-run home run by Trevor Story. Despite the setback and the rough win-loss record, Brieske has still pitched decently overall with a 4.07 ERA and 1.21 WHIP across 59.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Beau Brieske: Throws seven shutout innings
Brieske allowed three runs and two walks with six strikeouts across seven shutout innings in a no-decision versus the Rangers on Thursday.
Brieske pitched his third quality start in 10 games this year, and it was his most dominant performance yet. He's now gone 12.2 innings in his last two starts without allowing a run, though Gregory Soto's blown save Thursday denied Brieske a second straight win. In 54.2 innings overall, the rookie has a 3.79 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 37:17 K:BB. He's lined up for a road start in Boston next week.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Beau Brieske: Picks up first win
Brieske (1-5) earned a win against Toronto on Saturday, allowing no runs on seven hits while striking out two and walking none in 5.2 innings.
Brieske earned his first win of the year Saturday, throwing 56 of 89 pitches for strikes. It was his first game of the season in which he did not allow either a walk or an earned run. The young righty has steadily improved his ERA over the last three games, as it now sits at 4.34 thanks to a 1.54 ERA in two June appearances. He'll look to keep things going in the right direction in his next appearance.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Beau Brieske: Best start of MLB career
Brieske (0-5) gave up two earned runs on three hits and one walk while striking out seven over six innings Saturday against the Yankees. He took the loss.
This was a very good performance by Brieske, especially considering the offense he was up against, but he got no run support. Saturday was Brieske's best statistical start of his big-league career, and the average velocity on all of his pitches spiked compared to his season averages. He sat 94.6 mph with his fastball (94.2 mph season average) and touched 96 mph. Similarly, his changeup averaged a firmer 83.5 mph (81.1 mph season average). His next chance projects to come next weekend at home against the Blue Jays.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Beau Brieske: Records no-decision Monday
Brieske allowed four runs on six hits across 5.2 innings and did not factor into the decision in Monday's win over the Twins. He walked two and struck out four.
Brieske is still searching for his first MLB win, as he's now 0-4 with three no-decisions across his first seven starts. The righty was done in by home runs, as he served up three long balls that accounted for all the runs against him. It was the fourth time he's allowed multiple homers in a start, which is a trend Brieske will need to stop if he hopes to lower his 5.25 ERA. The rookie will again seek his first career win in his next scheduled start, which is slated to be a tough matchup with the Yankees on the road Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Beau Brieske: Loses again Tuesday
Brieske (0-4) allowed two runs on six hits across four innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Twins. He walked one and struck out three.
Brieske pitched OK, though he needed 90 pitches to get through four innings, so he wasn't able to go very deep in the contest. He was also outdueled by Sonny Gray, who tossed seven shutout innings, and the Tigers fell 2-0 with just five hits as a team. Brieske at least bounced back after allowing two long balls and six runs in his last start, but his first MLB win remains elusive. The rookie will carry a 5.04 ERA into his next start, which tentatively lines up for Sunday against the Guardians.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Beau Brieske: Has first rough outing
Brieske (0-3) allowed six runs on nine hits across 5.1 innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Rays. He walked one and struck out four.
Coming into Tuesday, Brieske had allowed no more than three runs in any of his four starts while going five or more innings each time. He reached the five-inning mark again in his fifth start, but the righty was hit around a bit for the first time in his young MLB career. Home runs continue to be a bit of an issue for Brieske, as he allowed multiple long balls for the third time already in his rookie campaign. The 24-year-old may have more tough outings ahead if he can't keep the ball in the park. Brieske will carry a 5.13 ERA into his next scheduled start Sunday against the Guardians.... See More ...

Tigers' Beau Brieske: Logs quality start Thursday
Brieske allowed three runs (two earned) across six innings and did not factor into the decision Thursday against the Athletics. He walked three and struck out two.
Brieske pitched reasonably well for the fourth straight time to begin his rookie campaign, though he has two losses and two no-decisions to show for it. The righty went exactly five innings in each of his previous three starts, so this was a new high-water mark for innings. Brieske has also allowed three earned runs or fewer in each of his four outings, which has propelled him to a solid 3.86 ERA for the season. The 24-year-old remains in search of his first MLB win in his next scheduled start Tuesday against the Rays.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Beau Brieske: Handed loss in Houston
Brieske (0-2) allowed three runs on five hits and three walks over five innings Friday, striking out three and taking a loss against the Astros.
All three runs against Brieske came in the second inning when he coughed up back-to-back homers to Chas McCormick and Martin Maldonado. He's now tossed exactly five innings in each of his first three career MLB starts. The 24-year-old rookie saw his ERA climb to 4.20 with a 9:7 K:BB. Brieske is currently in line to face the Athletics at home next week.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Beau Brieske: Quiets Dodgers over five innings
Brieske did not factor into the decision in Saturday's win over the Dodgers. He allowed one run on three hits and two walks while striking out three over five innings.
It wasn't the most dominant effort -- Brieske had only three swinging strikes on 90 pitches -- but five innings of one-run ball against this team (in Los Angeles no less) is impressive for a 24-year-old rookie. The right-hander now has a 3.60 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in his first 10 innings. Brieske has allowed a homer both times out so far and has served up three homers total, and he will need to get the long ball in check in a hurry to enjoy similar results moving forward....

Tigers' Beau Brieske: Starting Saturday
Brieske is starting Saturday's game against the Dodgers, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Brieske's first major-league game start came in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rockies, and he allowed three runs on three hits and two walks while striking out three in five innings to take the loss. The right-hander will make another turn through the rotation since Casey Mize (elbow) and Matt Manning (shoulder) remain on the injured list, but Brieske has a tough matchup against one of the top lineups in baseball....

Tigers' Beau Brieske: Takes loss in debut
Brieske (0-1) suffered the loss against Colorado in Game 2 of a doubleheader Saturday, tossing five innings and allowing three runs on three hits and two walks while striking out three.
Brieske didn't pitch terribly in his first big-league start, but a pair of Colorado homers accounted for three runs against him, which was enough to tag him with a loss. The right-hander yielded only one hit aside from the long balls but didn't miss many bats with only three punchouts. Brieske's opportunity to start was partly due to the Tigers playing a doubleheader, so it's unclear what his role will be moving forward.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Beau Brieske: Called up for big-league debut
Brieske's contract was selected from Triple-A Toledo on Saturday.
It was reported Thursday that Brieske would be called up this weekend, and the Tigers made the move official Saturday. He will make his big-league debut the same night, as he has been announced as the starter for the second game of Detroit's twin bill against Colorado.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Beau Brieske: Slated to debut Saturday
Brieske will have his contract selected by the Tigers on Saturday and start at home against the Rockies, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Brieske has made two appearances at Triple-A Toledo this year and has struck out nine while giving up five runs in 10 innings. The right-hander will make his major-league debut as Saturday's starter, but his status on the big-league roster following the outing will likely depend on when Matt Manning (shoulder) and Casey Mize (elbow) are cleared to return from the injured list....
