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

Farmer (1-1) was charged with the loss Wednesday against the Pirates, as he allowed one run on three hits and a walk, while retiring just two batters.

Farmer started off the top of the 10th inning by allowing a double and two singles. He was able to minimize the damage some by inducing a double play, but the 28-year-old still took the loss when the Tigers failed to score in the bottom half of the inning. Despite the hiccup, Farmer still has a solid 1.69 ERA across his first 5.1 innings of work this season.

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

Farmer (1-0) retired two batters, both by strikeout, and earned the win in Wednesday's game against the Yankees.

Detroit starter Matthew Boyd was brilliant, striking out 13 and allowing just one run through 6.1 innings, but the Tigers turned to Farmer to finish off the seventh inning with the score tied 1-1. He vultured the win when Detroit pulled ahead in the top of the eighth. After flopping as a starter at the MLB level in 2017, Farmer worked almost entirely out of relief last season, posting a 4.15 ERA and 57 strikeouts across 69.1 innings. The 28-year-old should continue working in middle relief for the Tigers, which gives him limited fantasy utility.

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.
