Tigers' Daniel Stumpf: Returns from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers recalled Stumpf from Triple-A Toledo on Sunday.

With righty reliever Buck Farmer moving into the rotation to make a spot start Sunday against the Twins, Stumpf will move up to the big club to give the Tigers another southpaw out of the bullpen. Over 41 appearances with Detroit this season, Stumpf has submitted a 7.11 ERA and 2.01 WHIP across 25.1 innings and will likely see his usage limited mainly to lefty-on-lefty matchups.

Tigers' Daniel Stumpf: Sent down to Toledo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stumpf was optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Wednesday, Jason Beck of reports.

Artie Lewicki will take Stumpf's place on the active roster after the latter was cast off the 25-man prior to Wednesday's game. Across 41 relief appearances with the Tigers this year, Stumpf has logged an abysmal 7.11 ERA and 2.01 WHIP with a 5.3 BB/9.

Tigers' Daniel Stumpf: Headed to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stumpf (elbow) has returned to health and will be recalled from Triple-A Toledo, John Wagner of The Toledo Blade reports.

Stumpf has appeared in 28 games for Detroit this season, accruing a 5.71 ERA and 1.90 WHIP with 14 strikeouts over 17.1 innings. He'll likely be used in low-leverage situations out of the bullpen, given his alarming ERA.

Tigers' Daniel Stumpf: Cleared for rehab stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stumpf (elbow) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday.

Stumpf has been on the disabled list since May 30 with ulnar nerve irritation, but he's been cleared to return to game action after getting through a bullpen session with no issues over the weekend. He's expected to need at least two rehab appearances before rejoining the Tigers.

Tigers' Daniel Stumpf: Rehab assignment looming
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stumpf (elbow) is set to embark on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo in the next couple days, Jason Beck of reports.

Stumpf recently threw his first bullpen session since landing on the DL with left ulnar irritation in late May and could see time in the minors as soon as this weekend if everything goes according to plan. It's expected that he will require multiple outings with the Mud Hens before returning to Detroit.

Tigers' Daniel Stumpf: Cleared for bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stumpf (elbow) will throw a bullpen session this week, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Stumpf is having no issues throwing all of his pitches from flat ground, so he'll progress to mound work for the first time since landing on the disabled list near the end of May. The lefty will eventually need to face live hitters before returning, leaving his possible return date up in the air.

Tigers' Daniel Stumpf: Throwing from flat ground
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stumpf (elbow) threw from flat ground Thursday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Stumpf landed on the disabled list at the end of May with an elbow injury, but he's already resumed throwing a program after an MRI cleared him of any structural damage. He'll continue to ramp up his throwing intensity before eventually being cleared to head out on a minor-league rehab stint.

Tigers' Daniel Stumpf: Avoids structural damage to elbow
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stumpf was cleared of any structural damage to his left elbow after undergoing an MRI on Wednesday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Stumpf was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday after experiencing irritation in the ulnar nerve of his elbow, but follow-up examinations revealed that the ligament is still intact. The 27-year-old is expected to rest up for a few days to allow the inflammation in the elbow to subside before resuming a throwing program.

Tigers' Daniel Stumpf: Placed on DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stumpf was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday with left ulnar irritation, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Stumpf last pitched on Monday, walking the only batter he faced. He is apparently dealing with some swelling in his elbow which has caused tingling in his fingers. He was seen by a specialist who suggested that he take some time off. Johnny Barbato was recalled from Triple-A Toledo to fill Stumpf's spot in the bullpen.

Tigers' Daniel Stumpf: Charged with another loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stumpf (1-2) was tagged with the loss and a blown save Monday against the Rangers. He retired just one of the three hitters he faced, allowing an earned run on two hits.

Stumpf came on in the seventh inning with a runner on base and two outs, and he promptly allowed a single to Shin-Soo Choo to bring home the inherited runner to tie the game. He then gave up a triple to Jurickson Profar that plated the go-ahead run. Stumpf has taken the loss in two of his last three appearances, and he's allowed three earned runs over an inning of work in that time to bump his season ERA up to 3.55.

Tigers' Daniel Stumpf: Takes loss Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stumpf (1-1) was charged with the loss Friday against the Royals, allowing two earned runs on two hits while retiring just a single batter.

Stumpf relieved starter Francisco Liriano with no outs and one on in the eighth, and he gave up singles to Jon Jay and Alex Gordon before getting the hook. Both runners would come around to score against Joe Jimenez. The subpar performance bumped Stumpf's season ERA from 1.54 up to 3.00.

Tigers' Daniel Stumpf: Records first win Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stumpf (1-0) recorded his first win of the season in Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Pirates by tossing 1.1 scoreless innings of relief while striking out one.

In a game that featured 23 total runs and 34 hits, Stumpf was one of the few pitchers who performed effectively. The lefty now has a solid 2.16 ERA for the season. His fantasy value is limited due to his middle-relief role, but he should continue to be one of Detroit's most reliable bullpen options.

Tigers' Daniel Stumpf: Pitching well this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

After a scoreless outing in Thursday's Grapefruit League loss to the Braves, Stumpf has his spring training ERA down to 2.57 across seven innings.

Stumpf is likely going to be the team's top left-handed option this season, and he's looking the part in spring training. Stumpf profiles as a true LOOGY for the Tigers, as righties posted an .873 OPS against him last season. That makes him valuable in Detroit, but limits his fantasy appeal outside of leagues that count holds.

Tigers' Daniel Stumpf: Considered top lefty in bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tigers pitching coach Chris Bosio suggested Wednesday that Stumpf will enter the season as the team's top left-hander out of the bullpen, Chris McCosky of reports. "Big stuff, great stuff," Bosio said of Stumpf. "This guy knows what he's doing. We are trying some things with him and he's got the aptitude to do it, as well. We've got a special left-handed reliever right there in Daniel."

So far in spring training, Stumpf has picked up where he left off in 2017, when he finished the season as the Tigers' undisputed top southpaw reliever. Considering the lack of impact arms in the Detroit bullpen, however, that distinction doesn't mean a whole lot for Stumpf, who remains best suited for a true LOOGY role rather than one that requires him to record three-plus outs against hitters from either side of the dish. Opposing righties torched Stumpf last season to the tune of an .873 OPS, a 261-point difference from his mark against lefties.

Tigers' Daniel Stumpf: Trying out new changeup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stumpf threw a new, slower changeup in his spring outing against the Blue Jays on Saturday, The Detroit News reports.

Stumpf had an upper-80s changeup last year, though he only threw it 6.7 percent of the time. Saturday's changeups were clocked in the lower 80s. A more effective changeup would give Stumpf a potential weapon against right-handed hitters, who hit .293 against him last season. The 27-year-old hasn't been a particularly fantasy-relevant pitcher thus far in his career, putting up a 4.34 ERA in 42.2 innings. Relievers can develop seemingly out of nowhere though, so if Stumpf shows positive results early in the season, it may be due to a new pitch and not a total fluke, making him a potential deep-league option.

Tigers' Daniel Stumpf: Records a hold Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stumpf recorded his eighth hold of the season in Thursday's win over the Royals. He pitched a scoreless inning with no hits or walks allowed.

Stumpf has been one of the few Detroit relievers to post decent numbers this season, as he now has a 3.89 ERA for the year. However, he'll have to get that 1.41 WHIP down in 2018 if he wants to sustain success out of the bullpen.

Tigers' Daniel Stumpf: Takes loss Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stumpf (0-1) was tagged with the loss and his second blown save of the season in Saturday's game against the Twins. He allowed three runs on three hits without retiring a batter.

Stumpf has been pitching reasonably well for the Tigers, but he struggled in this one. Stumpf came on after Alex Wilson took a comebacker off the leg and left with a fractured leg in the eighth inning, and Stumpf proceeded to allow three straight singles before getting the hook. All three runners came around to score as the Twins plated eight runs in the inning.

Tigers' Daniel Stumpf: Showing improvement from last season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stumpf has pitched 18.0 innings this season with 16 strikeouts and an ERA of 2.50.

In his second taste of the big leagues, Stumpf is showing improvement from his short stint he had last season with Philadelphia. With the better results, Stumpf might be in line for a bigger role if closer Justin Wilson is traded in the coming days.

Tigers' Daniel Stumpf: Struggling as left-handed specialist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stumpf has five strikeouts and has allowed four runs in 5.1 innings this season.

Stumpf's role this season has been as a left-handed specialist, as he's only pitched a full inning or more in three of his nine appearances this year. He's struggled in his role as hitters have gotten to him, roughing him up to the tune of a .381 batting average. Because of his limited role and poor results, it doesn't appear as if the southpaw retains much fantasy value in any format at the moment.

Tigers' Daniel Stumpf: Recalled by Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stumpf was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Friday.

Stumpf has pitched decently at Triple-A this season, compiling a 3.38 ERA and a 26:5 K:BB over 21.1 innings in relief. He'll provide much-needed depth in a bullpen which only has one other left-handed arm in Blaine Hardy, but Stumpf will likely be used exclusively in low-leverage situations after posting a 10.80 ERA over seven appearances with the Phillies last year.
