Tigers' Buck Farmer: Works 2.1 innings in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farmer started Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Twins and did not factor into the decision, as he allowed two runs on two hits and a walk over 2.1 innings. He struck out two.

It was originally believed that Triple-A call-up Jacob Turner would start for the Tigers, but manager Ron Gardenhire mixed things up and went with Farmer to begin the game. The 27-year-old hadn't thrown more than three innings or 49 pitches in a game this season, so he wasn't expected to go too long. Farmer departed with two runners on base after tossing 41 pitches, and he figures to slide back into a middle relief role moving forward.

Tigers' Buck Farmer: Takes loss Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farmer (3-4) took the loss in Friday's 1-0 decision against the Athletics, allowing an earned run on two hits and a walk over 1.2 innings.

Farmer had zero margin for error when he entered a 0-0 game in the bottom of the 12th inning. He made quick work of things there, but the 13th proved unlucky. Farmer allowed a leadoff walk before retiring the next two hitters. However, the third out proved elusive, as he gave up back-to-back singles, with the second one bringing home the winning run. Farmer has a mediocre 4.88 ERA this season, but he will likely continue working in long relief for the rebuilding Tigers.

Tigers' Buck Farmer: Picks up win Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farmer (3-3) was the winning pitcher Saturday against the White Sox, working around a hit and two walks to toss a scoreless inning of relief.

Farmer made the seventh inning interesting, walking two batters with two outs to load the bases before getting the dangerous Jose Abreu to ground out. The 27-year-old now has a 5.51 ERA and 1.81 WHIP, and has simply been allowing too many baserunners to be a consistent option for the Tigers.

Tigers' Buck Farmer: Picks up first win Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farmer (1-3) grabbed the win Friday against the White Sox by tossing a scoreless inning of relief with two strikeouts.

Farmer needed just nine pitches to retire Chicago in order in the top of the eighth inning, then became the pitcher of record when the Tigers went ahead in the bottom of the inning with three runs. The 27-year-old has been struggling lately, so it was nice to see him rebound, though he still has an unsightly 5.32 ERA for the season and will need to string together more outings like this one to show he's turned a corner.

Tigers' Buck Farmer: Struggles again in relief Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farmer pitched two innings of relief in Tuesday's loss to the Twins, allowing three earned runs on four hits. He struck out four.

Farmer exhibited his swing-and-miss stuff with the four strikeouts, though he also showed once again that he's often prone to giving up hits and runs in bunches. The 27-year-old has 27 strikeouts in 22.2 innings this season, but he's also allowed runs in three straight appearances and has a 5.56 ERA, which has him mostly off the fantasy radar at the moment.
