The Tigers optioned Burrows to their alternate training site Friday.
Detroit made the transaction after Burrows had served as the 29th man for its doubleheader Thursday in St. Louis. Burrows made his fifth appearance of the season out of the bullpen in Game 1 of the twin bill, giving up a run on five hits while recording four outs.
Burrows will serve as the 29th man for Thursday's doubleheader in St. Louis.
After the Tigers got tagged for 19 runs and used five pitchers (plus a position player) against the Brewers on Wednesday, they could definitely use a fresh arm in Burrows for this twin bill. He has logged three straight scoreless appearances after giving up three earned runs in his first appearance of the year.
Burrows was sent to Detroit's alternate training site after Saturday's doubleheader against the Twins.
Burrows served as the 29th man for the twin bill but didn't appear in either contest. He has allowed three runs on three hits with two strikeouts and one walk over 5.1 innings this season.
Burrows was named the 29th man for Saturday's doubleheader against the Twins.
Burrows will provide a fresh arm in the bullpen, but he'll likely return to the team's alternate training site following Saturday's twin bill. The right-hander allowed three runs over 5.1 innings during three relief appearances earlier this season.
Burrows was optioned to the alternate training site after Tuesday's loss to the White Sox, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
The 23-year-old was recalled by the Tigers last week and fired three scoreless innings during his time with the team. Burrows has allowed three runs over 5.1 innings this season and could rejoin the big-league club when it needs some bullpen depth.
Burrows was recalled by the Tigers on Monday.
Burrows made one appearance for the Tigers early in the season, and it wasn't a good one, as he allowed three runs in 2.1 innings of work against the Royals. That's his lone big-league outing thus far, and he's yet to have success at the Triple-A level, either, struggling to a 5.51 ERA in 15 starts for Toledo last season.
Burrows was optioned to the Tigers' alternate training site after Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Reds.
The 23-year-old made the Opening Day roster but struggled in his lone appearance, giving up three runes on three hits with one walk and zero strikeouts over 2.1 innings. Burrows should remain a relief option later in the season if Detroit needs additional bullpen arms.
Burrows will open the year in the Tigers' bullpen.
While the 23-year-old righty was already on the 40-man roster, this move will allow him to make his big-league debut in 2020. He has worked exclusively as a starter in the minors, but lacks the command and stuff to have success in that role in the majors. However, his low-90s fastball could sit in the mid-90s in shorter stints. He lacks a hammer offspeed pitch, so Burrows will likely be limited to mid-leverage work as a rookie.
Burrows will be a part of the Tigers' 60-man player pool this season.
Burrows was optioned to Triple-A Toledo back in March, but with MLB rosters expanded, the 23-year-old will now get a shot in the majors. He may simply be around for depth, however, and is not a lock to earn significant playing time this season.
The Tigers optioned Burrows to Triple-A Toledo on March 6.
Burrows wasn't under consideration for a back-end spot in the Detroit rotation, making him an easy early cut as the Tigers trimmed down their camp roster. After posting a 5.51 ERA and 1.54 WHIP over 15 starts at Toledo in 2019, Burrows will need to find more success in the International League before the big club gives him a look.
Burrows (oblique) is listed as an available option out of the Tigers' bullpen for Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Mets, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Burrows' inclusion on the lineup card isn't necessarily an indication that he'll be used in relief Tuesday, but it appears safe to conclude that the 23-year-old has moved past the left oblique strain that resulted in him being shut down last August. After wrapping up the 2019 campaign with a 4.84 ERA in 74.1 innings between three affiliates, Burrows is expected to fill a full-time role in the Triple-A Toledo rotation in 2020.
Burrows (oblique) was added to the Tigers' 40-man roster Wednesday, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Burrows advanced to Triple-A Toledo last season, where he recorded a 5.51 ERA with a 61:32 K:BB over 65.1 innings. It's encouraging to see him reach the Triple-A level, but he'll likely have to show more consistency in limiting run production before he is considered for a major-league role. Burrows' addition to the 40-man roster protects him from the Rule 5 draft.
Burrows will be shut down for the rest of 2019 due to a left oblique strain, Emily Waldon of The Athletic reports.
Burrows started 15 games for Triple-A Toledo prior to suffering the injury, posting a 5.51 ERA and 1.54 WHIP with a 61:32 K:BB over 65.1 innings. He's expected to be healthy for the start of spring training, per Waldon.
Burrows was promoted to Triple-A Toledo on Thursday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Burrows missed a month and a half due to shoulder inflammation, but he's back with Toledo after making a pair of rehab start, one with High-A Lakeland and the other with Double-A Erie. Prior to getting hurt, Burrows compiled a 5.32 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 26:11 K:BB in 23.2 innings with the Mud Hens.
Burrows was promoted to Double-A Erie on Friday, Emily Waldon of The Athletic reports.
Burrows missed a month and a half due to shoulder inflammation. He returned for one start at High-A Lakeland and should now spend a brief period of time with Erie before returning to Triple-A Toledo, where he started the season.
Burrows was activated from the 7-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Monday for High-A Lakeland, Emily Waldon of The Athletic reports.
Burrows has been sidelined since April 27 with right shoulder inflammation, but he proved his health last weekend by completing a three-inning simulated game. He'll likely take on a larger workload while he returns to minor-league action Monday for what will be a de facto rehab outing. Assuming Burrows escapes his turn with Lakeland without any setbacks, he'll likely move up to Triple-A Toledo for his subsequent start.
Burrows (shoulder) pitched at High-A Lakeland on Sunday and is scheduled for a simulated game (three innings) Wednesday, Emily Waldon of The Athletic reports.
This is positive news for Burrows, who landed on the 7-day injured list May 2 with shoulder inflammation. Following Wednesday's sim game, he'll be re-evaluated to determine the next step in his rehab process.
Burrows was placed on the minor-league injured list due to shoulder inflammation, Brian Buckey of The Toledo Blade reports.
Manager Doug Mientkiewicz downplayed the severity of the injury, noting that Burrows underwent an MRI that revealed no "major" or "structural" damage. The skipper expects Burrows to be back in action in about a week. Prior to landing on the shelf, Burrows posted a 5.32 ERA and 26:11 K:BB in five starts (23.2 innings).
Burrows tossed 6.1 scoreless innings in a no-decision Thursday for Triple-A Toledo. He allowed three hits and struck out five.
Burrows has not allowed an earned run through his first 10.1 innings of the season, and he has 12 strikeouts versus just two walks. The 22-year-old struggled with command last season, posting a 3.8 BB/9 in 134 innings with Double-A Erie, so he could be ready to take a step forward as a prospect if he continues to limit the walks.
Burrows has a 4.2 BB/9 this season in 108.1 innings with Double-A Erie, which is the highest mark of his four-year professional career.
Last season, Burrows started with High-A Lakeland and posted a 1.7 BB/9 across 58.2 innings, but that figure jumped to 3.9 when he finished the year with 76.1 innings at Double-A. Erie manager Andrew Graham said the 21-year-old hasn't been able to dominate as much with just his fastball, which could be behind some of the control issues as he's had to rely on secondary stuff more often, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports. Burrows still has a solid 3.99 ERA, and if he can iron out his control a bit, he could advance to Triple-A before the season is over.
