  • Tigers' Garrett Hill: Pitches well in relief Friday

    Hill pitched three scoreless innings of relief in Friday's loss to the Rangers. He allowed two hits and a walk while striking out four.

    Detroit starter Tyler Alexander allowed seven runs across three innings, but Hill came in and pitched much better. The righty recently shifted to the bullpen with Eduardo Rodriguez (personal) rejoining the rotation, though the likes of Alexander and Drew Hutchison aren't the most well-established starters toward the back of the staff. That leaves open the possibility of Hill picking up more starts at some point, though Bryan Garcia could also get recalled from Triple-A Toledo if the Tigers need another starter. As a starter this season, Hill has logged a 4.22 ERA and 1.31 WHIP across 42.2 innings (eight starts).

  • Tigers' Garrett Hill: Moving to bullpen

    Hill is moving to the Tigers bullpen, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

    All eight of his MLB appearances have come as a starter, with Hill logging a 4.22 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, 21 strikeouts and 18 walks in 42.2 innings. Eduardo Rodriguez (personal) is joining the rotation Sunday and the Tigers can work with a four-man rotation through the end of the month. Daniel Norris is also moving to the bullpen and Bryan Garcia is a candidate to take the ball the next time the Tigers need a fifth starter.

  • Tigers' Garrett Hill: Looks sharp in win

    Hill (3-3) allowed one run on four hits across six innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Guardians. He walked two and struck out three.

    Hill turned in his best effort since his MLB debut back on July 4, when he also allowed just one run across six innings. The righty hasn't been a big strikeout pitcher so far, with only 21 of them across 42.2 innings, so he'll have a smaller margin for error than most moving forward. However, Hill should stick in the rotation for the injury-riddled Tigers, who are missing all of Casey Mize, (elbow) Tarik Skubal (elbow), Beau Brieske (biceps), Michael Pineda (triceps) and Eduardo Rodriguez (personal), though Rodriguez could return soon. Hill is lined up to make his next start next week against the Giants.

  • Tigers' Garrett Hill: Survives against Guardians

    Hill allowed three runs (one earned) on four hits and two walks while striking out one across five innings Thursday against the Guardians. He did not factor into the decision.

    Hill wasn't particularly sharp, but the Tigers' defense made two separate errors behind him that led directly to runs. He's allowed three or fewer earned runs in five of his seven starts this season but has only a 17:14 K:BB across 31.2 frames. Hill's 4.66 ERA on the campaign is currently being held up by tenuous skills, and he may be out of a spot in the rotation once either Michael Pineda (triceps) or Eduardo Rodriguez (personal) --both are currently on rehab assignments -- is able to return.

  • Tigers' Garrett Hill: Strikes out six for win

    Hill (2-3) gave up one earned run on six hits and three walks while striking out six to earn the win in a 9-1 victory over the Rays on Saturday.

    Hill put together the second-best start of his young career, outdueling Shane McClanahan for his second win in six starts this season. Hill doesn't have overpowering stuff, but he kept hitters off balance with a five-pitch mix that included a highly effective knuckle curve that the Rays never made contact with. However, walks are a concern for the 26-year-old right-hander. His K:BB is now 17:14 over 31.2 innings this season. Hill will look to pick up his third win in his next start, which is expected to be at the White Sox.

  • Tigers' Garrett Hill: Fans one in loss

    Hill (1-3) took the loss Sunday in Toronto, allowing four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out one in five innings.

    Hill allowed a two-out, two-run homer to Matt Chapman in the second and run-scoring doubles to Vladimir Guerrero and Bo Bichette in the fifth. He was able to induce two double-play groundballs to limit the damage. The 26-year-old made five starts for the Tigers in July despite bouncing back-and-forth between Detroit and Triple-A Toledo for roster reasons. Should he continue on the big-league roster, it's likely he will start again next weekend against Tampa Bay.

  • Tigers' Garrett Hill: Remains in rotation

    Hill is scheduled to make his next start Sunday in Toronto, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Hill was returned to Triple-A Toledo after he served as the Tigers' 27th man and starting pitcher in the second game of their doubleheader last Thursday with the Athletics, but Detroit brought him back from the minors this week after fellow starter Rony Garcia (biceps) was moved to the injured list in a corresponding move. The rookie was shaky in a no-decision Tuesday against the Padres, working five innings while allowing three earned runs on five hits and four walks. In spite of his unremarkable results through his first four big-league starts -- he sports a 5.57 ERA and 1.29 WHIP over 21 innings -- Hill looks like he'll keep holding down a rotation spot while Detroit's starting pitching depth continues to be thinned by injuries.

  • Tigers' Garrett Hill: Walks four in return

    Hill allowed three runs on five hits and four walks while striking out two in five innings of a 6-4 extra-inning loss against San Diego. He did not factor into the decision.

    All the damage against Hill came with two outs in the second inning. After retiring the first two batters, the next five Padres reached safely and three came around to score. The rookie was recalled before the game, replacing Rony Garcia (biceps) in the rotation. Hill has been a strikeout machine in the minors, fanning 10.9 batters per nine innings, but has yet to miss many bats in the majors, striking out just 10 batters in 21 innings across four starts. Should he receive another start with Detroit, it would likely be over the weekend in Toronto.

  • Tigers' Garrett Hill: Officially called up

    Hill was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Monday.

    Hill was optioned to Toledo on Thursday but will rejoin the Tigers' rotation as the starter for Tuesday's game against the Padres after Rony Garcia (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day injured list Monday. Hill has made three starts for the Tigers this year, posting a 5.63 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 16 innings.

  • Tigers' Garrett Hill: Rejoining rotation

    Hill will be called up from Triple-A Toledo to start Tuesday's game against the Padres, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    The Tigers may wait until Tuesday to make the transaction official, but the rookie will be rejoining the rotation as a replacement for Rony Garcia (biceps), who will be placed on the 15-day injured list within the next two days. Hill has previously made three starts for the Tigers, with his most recent outing coming in a doubleheader against the White Sox last week when Detroit kicked off its second-half schedule. Over 16 big-league innings, Hill has recorded a 5.63 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 8:5 K:BB.

  • Tigers' Garrett Hill: Suffers second loss

    Hill (1-2) allowed three runs on five hits across five innings to take the loss in Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Athletics. He walked two and struck out four.

    Hill cruised through five scoreless innings, but he ran into trouble in the sixth by allowing two singles and a three-run home run by Sean Murphy before getting the hook. This was Hill's third start of the year, and outside of allowing six runs his last time out, he's allowed just four runs over his other 11 innings of action, leaving the righty with a 5.63 ERA overall. Hill was the 27th man for Thursday's doubleheader and could return to the minors soon, though with Detroit's rotation thinned by injuries, he figures to see more MLB starts this year.

  • Tigers' Garrett Hill: Optioned to Triple-A

    Hill was returned to Triple-A Toldeo after the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Athletics.

    Hill served as the 27th man for Detroit's doubleheader and started the second game. He allowed three runs on five hits across five innings while walking two and striking out four to take the loss. Hill has maintained a 4.06 ERA and 1.24 WHIP across 37.2 innings with Toledo this season and will likely remain a candidate for spot starts in the second half of the season.

  • Tigers' Garrett Hill: Called up for start Thursday

    Hill was promoted from Triple-A Toledo to start Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Athletics.

    The Tigers are designating Hill as their 27th man for the twin bill, so he'll presumably be moved off the 26-man active roster after making his third start of the season with the big club. The right-hander owns a 5.73 ERA and 1.00 WHIP with four strikeouts over 11 innings across his two outings in the big leagues.

  • Tigers' Garrett Hill: Getting spot start Thursday

    The Tigers will promote Hill from Triple-A Toledo to start the second game of Thursday's doubleheader with the Athletics in Oakland.

    A matchup with one of MLB's worst offenses in a favorable venue for pitchers looks like a good spot for Hill, but he'll have the misfortune of going head to head with the Athletics' staff ace, Frankie Montas (shoulder), who will take the mound for the first time since July 3. Before he was demoted to Toledo shortly before the All-Star break, Hill picked up two starts for Detroit and allowed seven earned runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out four over 11 innings.

  • Tigers' Garrett Hill: Heads back to minors

    The Tigers optioned Hill to Triple-A Toledo on Sunday.

    Prior to Hill's July 3 call-up from Toledo, manager A.J. Hinch said the rookie would receive three turns through the rotation prior to the All-Star break. However, Hill looks like he'll end up getting just two starts, as he was sent back to the minors after getting crushed by the White Sox for six earned runs on six hits and two walks over five innings in a losing effort in his second career big-league outing. The Tigers now have an opening in the rotation for Thursday's game in Cleveland, and while Hill could still be a candidate to fill the void, Detroit would have to place another player on the injured list in a corresponding move to facilitate the 26-year-old's return to the 26-man active roster.

  • Tigers' Garrett Hill: Crushed by White Sox

    Hill (1-1) allowed six earned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out one across five innings to take the loss Saturday against the White Sox.

    Hill was hit hard early, highlighted by a three-run home run off the bat of Gavin Sheets in the first inning. While he managed to settle in after allowing three additional runs in the second frame, the damage was already done. Saturday's start was Hill's second in the major leagues, and he earned an opportunity after performing well in the upper levels of the minors. However, with both Rony Garcia (shoulder) and Matt Manning (shoulder) nearing a return, Hill may not have the opportunity to stick in Detroit's rotation for much longer.

  • Tigers' Garrett Hill: Wins MLB debut Monday

    Hill (1-0) allowed a run on two hits across six innings to earn the win in Game 1 of Monday's doubleheader against the Guardians. He walked one and struck out three.

    Making his MLB debut, Hill was sharp, with a Josh Naylor solo home run accounting for the only damage. Detroit manager A.J. Hinch previously said that Hill would make three turns through the rotation leading up to the All-Star break. The next opportunity for the 26-year-old is slated for Saturday against the White Sox. If Hill continues to impress before the break, he could stick in the rotation heading into the second half of the season, especially if the Tigers move veteran starter Michael Pineda before the trade deadline.

  • Tigers' Garrett Hill: Added to 40-man roster

    The Tigers selected Hill's contract from Triple-A Toledo on Sunday.

    Though he'll be joining the Tigers ahead of Sunday's series finale with the Royals, Hill is slated to start the first game of Monday's doubleheader against the Guardians, according to Evan Woodbery of MLive.com. The 26-year-old right-hander received his first MLB call-up after turning in a 4.06 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 46:15 K:BB in 37.2 innings at Toledo following his late-May promotion from Double-A Erie.

  • Tigers' Garrett Hill: Getting extended rotation look

    Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said Hill, who will start the first game of Monday's doubleheader with the Guardians, will make three turns through the rotation leading up to the All-Star break, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Detroit called up Hill from Triple-A Toledo on Sunday and will officially bring Alex Faedo aboard from Toledo on Monday, when the two pitchers are expected to start the two doubleheader contests. Though Faedo has previously made 10 starts for the big club while Hill will be making his MLB debut Monday, the latter looks like he'll be sticking in the rotation over the former following the twin bill. Detroit could get one or both of Rony Garcia (shoulder) or Matt Manning (biceps/shoulder) back from the injured list shortly after the break, so Hill may need to prove serviceable while eating innings over his three starts to ensure he remains in the rotation when the second half of the season begins. Over his eight outings with Toledo prior to his promotion, the 26-year-old Hill turned in a 4.06 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 46:15 K:BB across 37.2 innings.

  • Tigers' Garrett Hill: Slated for MLB debut

    Hill will be called up to start the first game of Monday's doubleheader against the Guardians, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

    A sore shoulder has sidelined Rony Garcia and opened the door for Hill to make his major-league debut. Hill is 26 years old and was a 26th-round pick in 2018, so he's not a player with a lot of pedigree. The right-hander has posted a respectable 4.06 ERA and 46:15 K:BB in eight starts for Triple-A Toledo this season, but expectations should be kept in check.
