Tigers' Zac Reininger: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reininger was outrighted to Triple-A Toledo on Thursday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Reininger made 25 appearances with the major-league club this season, but recorded an 8.68 ERA with a 17:16 K:BB over 28 innings pitched. The 26-year-old likely won't garner much confidence from a major-league team unless he can turn things around in the minors due to his 8.08 ERA and 1.95 WHIP over three partial seasons in the majors.

Tigers' Zac Reininger: Headed back to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reininger is in line to work out of the bullpen moving forward with Matthew Boyd (personal) expected to rejoin the Tigers over the weekend and start Sunday against the White Sox, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Reininger drew his first big-league start in Tuesday's 7-2 loss to Cleveland, covering two innings and giving up four runs in what essentially amounted to a bullpen game. The 26-year-old should be available in relief within the next couple of days and will likely see most of his usage in mop-up situations the rest of the season.

Tigers' Zac Reininger: Allows four runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reininger (0-3) allowed four runs over two innings to take the loss Tuesday against Cleveland. He gave up five hits and a walk while striking out two.

Reininger wasn't expected to pitch more than three innings anyway, but he only made it through two as Cleveland batters got to him early and often. This was the first MLB start for the righty, who filled in for Matt Boyd (personal). Reininger now has a 9.00 ERA this season in 26 innings of work.

Tigers' Zac Reininger: Aiming for three innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reininger isn't expected to pitch more than three innings Tuesday against Cleveland, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

The report isn't particularly surprising, as Reininger hasn't recorded more than seven outs in any of his 22 relief outings this season. He has posted an 8.25 ERA and 12:15 K:BB in 24 innings with the major-league team.

September 18, 2019 12:36 PM
Tigers' Zac Reininger: Set for spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reininger will start Tuesday against Cleveland, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Reininger gets an opportunity with Matt Boyd away on personal leave. Reininger hasn't given much reason for optimism over 55 career major-league innings (all in relief), recording a 7.85 ERA and 35:27 K:BB.

Tigers' Zac Reininger: Given September callup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reininger was recalled by the Tigers on Monday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Reininger endured a rough time in 20.1 innings for the Tigers earlier in the year, posting an 8.85 ERA and a 2.11 WHIP. He owns a respectable but unimpressive 4.08 ERA and 1.59 WHIP in 57.1 innings for Triple-A Toledo.

Tigers' Zac Reininger: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reininger was optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Saturday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Reininger was recalled to the big-league club Wednesday and made two appearances in which he combined to allow four earned runs across 2.1 innings. Tyler Alexander will take his place on the roster and is slated to start Sunday's contest against the Blue Jays.

Tigers' Zac Reininger: Summoned to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reininger was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Wednesday.

Reininger will provide the Tigers with a fresh bullpen arm after Tuesday's starter, Ryan Carpenter, lasted just three innings. In 17 appearances with the big club this season, Reininger owns an 8.00 ERA, 2.06 WHIP and 6:9 K:BB across 18 innings.

Tigers' Zac Reininger: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reininger was optioned to Triple-A Toledo after Saturday's game against the Twins, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Reininger was called up by the Tigers on May 13 and pitched well during his latest major-league stint with a 2.61 ERA and 1.35 WHIP over 10.1 innings. The 26-year-old was demoted to make room on the 25-man roster for veteran reliever Carlos Torres.

May 13, 2019 02:08 PM
Tigers' Zac Reininger: Recalled by Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reininger was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Monday.

Reininger will be up for the third time this season. He has an ugly 14.85 ERA in 6.2 frames at the big-league level so far. Tyson Ross (elbow) landed on the injured list in a corresponding move.

Tigers' Zac Reininger: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reininger was optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Thursday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports

This comes after Reininger was tagged for three runs on four hits -- two homers -- and a walk while striking out one across 1.2 innings of relief Thursday against the Angels. The righty now owns a 14.40 ERA, 2.80 WHIP and 3:1 K:BB in five innings of big-league work this season. The Tigers are expected to announce a corresponding roster move prior to Friday's series opener against the Twins.

Tigers' Zac Reininger: Back in big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reininger was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Friday.

Reininger spent a day with the Tigers on Tuesday as the 26th man for that day's doubleheader against the Red Sox. He's up to replace Jordan Zimmerman (elbow) for now, but he could end up back in the minors when the Tigers need another starter.

April 24, 2019 01:24 PM
Tigers' Zac Reininger: Returns to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reininger was optioned to Triple-A Toledo following Tuesday's doubleheader against the Red Sox.

Reininger was called up earlier Tuesday to serve as the 26th man for the doubleheader. The 26-year-old faced only one batter during his day in the majors, but that batter was Mookie Betts, and Reininger retired him on two pitches with the tying run on base to finish the eighth inning.

Tigers' Zac Reininger: Brought up as 26th man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reininger will be brought up from Triple-A Toledo as the 26th man for the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Red Sox, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Reininger owns a sparkling 0.90 ERA with nine punchouts over 10 innings with Triple-A Toledo this season and will be available out of the bullpen for the Tigers if needed. He'll head back to the minors at the conclusion of the nightcap.

March 18, 2019 12:44 PM
Tigers' Zac Reininger: Shipped to Toledo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers optioned Reininger to Triple-A Toledo on Monday, Emily Waldon of The Athletic reports.

Reininger has covered 31 innings at the big-league level the past two seasons, accruing a 7.55 ERA and 1.81 WHIP. The right-hander will likely be limited to lower-leverage work out of the bullpen whenever he's up with the big club in 2019.

September 9, 2018 08:21 PM
Tigers' Zac Reininger: Returns to big leagues Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reininger was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Sunday.

Reininger shuttled between the majors and minors all season, but he'll be up for good now that rosters expanded for the month of September. His performance in Detroit has left much to be desired, though, as he allowed 10 runs in just 12 innings pitched in the big leagues this year. He'll likely work in low-leverage situations for the remainder of the season.

August 23, 2018 04:32 PM
Tigers' Zac Reininger: Sent back down to Toledo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reininger was optioned to Triple-A Toledo following Thursday's game.

Reininger pitched the ninth inning during Thursday's victory over the White Sox, allowing just one baserunner on a walk while recording one strikeout. In a corresponding move, the club is set to reinstated Michael Fulmer (oblique) from the DL prior to Friday's start. Reininger is a strong candidate to return to the big-league club when rosters expand in September.

August 16, 2018 12:05 PM
Tigers' Zac Reininger: Recalled from Toledo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reininger was called up from Triple-A Toledo on Wednesday.

Reininger has appeared in seven games for the Tigers this season, allowing eight earned runs on 10 hits and five walks with four strikeouts across seven innings of relief. He's fared much better with Toledo, logging a 2.89 ERA and 9.4 K/9. Expect to see him utilized in low-leverage spots while with the big-league club. In a corresponding move, the Tigers put Artie Lewicki (elbow) on the DL.

Tigers' Zac Reininger: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Ron Gardenhire said Reininger was optioned to Triple-A Toledo following the Tigers' 9-2 loss to the Indians on Sunday, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Reininger was roughed up while working the eighth inning of the blowout loss, surrendering three runs on four hits. His demotion could pave the way for the Tigers to add another catcher to the active roster with James McCann (illness) still recovering from a nasty bout of the flu, according to Fenech.

Tigers' Zac Reininger: Rejoins big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reininger was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Friday, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

The right-hander will return to fortify a bullpen that was forced to cover five innings in relief of Ryan Carpenter (oblique) on Thursday. Reininger has struggled in a major way in his first 12 career appearances at the big-league level and he will likely be sent back down when a need arises elsewhere on the roster.
