Tigers' Buck Farmer: Bounces back with victory Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farmer (5-5) claimed the victory against the Twins on Saturday, allowing just one run on four hits and four walks across five innings of work. He struck out three.

It wasn't a spectacular outing, but the right-hander managed to limit the damage to just one run notched in the bottom of the first -- a bases-loaded walk, no less. All in all, 2017 was a shaky season for Farmer, as his ERA and WHIP now sit at 6.75 and 1.56, respectively. Given the dearth of options ready for the majors heading into next season, however, the 26-year-old will likely get a fair shake at landing one of the final spots in Detroit's 2018 rotation if he can show improvement during spring training.

Tigers' Buck Farmer: Struggles continue Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farmer (4-5) took the loss in Sunday's game against the Twins. He allowed five runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out five over five innings.

Following Sunday's ugly performance, Farmer has now allowed 13 earned runs over his previous three starts. The 26-year-old got off to a strong start with the Tigers this season -- tossing 13 scoreless innings in his first two outings -- but has now failed to record a quality start in each of his past eight appearances. He lines up for another start against the Twins on Saturday, but should be kept out of fantasy lineups for the remainder of the season.

Tigers' Buck Farmer: Cleared for Sunday start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farmer (shoulder) has been cleared to make his next scheduled start Sunday against the Twins, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Farmer was battered for five runs (four earned) over 2.2 innings to take the loss in Monday's start to the Athletics and exited the contest with tightness in his trapezius muscle. The injury looked like it could prevent Farmer from completing a two-start week, but he's apparently resumed throwing without pain, prompting manager Brad Ausmus to call upon the right-hander to take the hill for the series finale. Even if he proves to be 100 percent healthy for Sunday's turn, Farmer is probably worth avoiding in most settings, as he's been lit up for 19 runs (17 earned) over 20.1 innings in his five starts since rejoining the Tigers' rotation.

Tigers' Buck Farmer: Dealt with trap tightness Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farmer dealt with tightness in his trapezius muscle during Monday's start against the A's, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

He allowed five runs (four earned) over just 2.2 innings, but this back/shoulder injury could have contributed to is ineffectiveness. It is unclear if he will be able to make his next start. Farmer has a 7.11 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 41 strikeouts in 38 innings in the majors this season.

Tigers' Buck Farmer: Lasts just 2.2 frames in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farmer (4-4) allowed five runs -- four earned -- on six hits while striking out three batters through just 2.2 innings to take the loss against Oakland on Monday.

This checked out as a favorable matchup, so Farmer's early exit was disappointing. He's now allowed 32 runs through 25 innings over his past seven starts, so with his final two starts projected to be against Minnesota, Farmer is probably best viewed as a desperation fantasy option in most settings.
