Ryan Carpenter: Let go by Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carpenter (elbow) was released by the Tigers on Tuesday.

Carpenter accrued a 9.30 ERA and 1.82 WHIP with a 25:13 K:BB over 40.2 innings this season in the big leagues. His release makes room on the 40-man roster for Troy Stokes, who was claimed off waivers by Detroit on Tuesday.

Tigers' Ryan Carpenter: Lands on 7-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carpenter was placed on Triple-A Toledo's 7-day injured list Aug. 2 due to a left elbow impingement.

Toledo shut Carpenter down one day after he surrendered six runs in five innings in his start against Indianapolis. Had he not succumbed to an injury of his own, Carpenter likely would have been an option to make a start for the big club Friday against the Royals. The Tigers, who are running a six-man rotation this week due to a doubleheader Tuesday versus the White Sox, have yet to decide on a spot starter.

Tigers' Ryan Carpenter: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carpenter was optioned to Triple-A Toledo following Tuesday's start versus the Indians, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Carpenter was handed the loss Tuesday after surrendering seven runs over three innings, so he'll make his way back to the minors. The 28-year-old has a 9.30 ERA, 1.82 WHIP and 25:13 K:BB in nine starts for the Tigers this season.

Tigers' Ryan Carpenter: Crushed by Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carpenter (1-6) allowed seven earned runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out none across three innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Indians.

Carpenter got through the first inning unscathed but was touched up for five earned runs in the second inning prior to allowing two more runners to cross the plate in the following frame. It was his ninth start for the big-league club this season. He's experienced little success, posting a 9.30 ERA and 1.82 WHIP with 25 strikeouts and 13 walks across 40.2 innings. If he sticks in the rotation for another turn, Carpenter will likely make his next start Sunday against Toronto.

Tigers' Ryan Carpenter: Confirmed as Tuesday's starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carpenter will be recalled from Triple-A Toledo to start Tuesday's game against the Indians, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Carpenter was rumored to be a favorite to make Tuesday's start, and the team confirmed their pitching plans Monday evening. He's made eight starts for the Tigers in 2019, accruing an 8.36 ERA and 1.75 WHIP with a 25:12 K:BB over 37.2 innings.

Tigers' Ryan Carpenter: Favorite to start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carpenter is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Toledo to start Tuesday's game against the Indians, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Since Carpenter's last start with Toledo came Thursday, he'll be available on his normal four days' rest and profiles as the most logical option on the 40-man roster to fill the opening in the Detroit rotation. While Carpenter has shown the ability to post solid strikeout rates in the high minors, his work at the major-league level has left much to be desired. Over 60 career innings with Detroit, Carpenter has posted a 7.95 ERA and 7.3 K-BB%.

Tigers' Ryan Carpenter: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carpenter was optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Friday.

Carpenter was called up for a spot start Friday against the Red Sox and got his job done capably enough, allowing three runs in five innings. He'll head back to the minors as he won't be needed again before the All-Star break. A corresponding move will come Saturday.

Tigers' Ryan Carpenter: Takes lost against Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carpenter (1-5) was charged with the loss Friday against the Red Sox after allowing three runs in five innings. He struck out four, walked one and allowed seven hits.

Carpenter was able to scatter the hits to avoid any big innings but was unable to complete a single frame without at least one runner reaching base. The outing was enough to lower Carpenter's ERA to a still-awful 8.36 through eight starts. He's walked just 14.0 percent of opposing batters, the exact same figure he posted last season.

July 5, 2019 05:40 PM
Tigers' Ryan Carpenter: Starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carpenter is now listed as the starter for Friday's game against Boston.

Carpenter was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Friday, though the Tigers didn't originally announce when he was expected to start. He'll square off against Eduardo Rodriguez on Friday, with Gregory Soto likely moving back to Sunday against David Price.

July 5, 2019 02:08 PM
Tigers' Ryan Carpenter: Returns to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carpenter was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Friday.

Carpenter's promotion comes as no surprise with him slated to start for the Tigers this weekend. The Tigers have yet to make an official announcement, but Gregory Soto is currently listed as Detroit's probable starter for Friday, which would mean Carpenter starts the final game before the All-Star break Sunday versus the Red Sox.

Tigers' Ryan Carpenter: On track to start for big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carpenter is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Toledo this weekend but the Tigers have yet to announce whether he'll start Friday or Sunday against the Red Sox, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

The Tigers have confirmed Jordan Zimmermann as their starting pitcher for Saturday's contest, but the team's plans for Friday and Sunday remain up in the air. Both Carpenter and Gregory Soto are expected to draw the other two starts, but manager Ron Gardenhire has yet to decide who will take the hill for the series opener and who will get the nod for the finale. Expect more clarity on the team's pitching plans to emerge later Friday, but no matter what day he takes the hill, Carpenter won't make for a dependable fantasy option. Over his 55 career innings in the big leagues, Carpenter has posted an 8.18 ERA and 1.75 WHIP.

June 14, 2019 10:56 PM
Tigers' Ryan Carpenter: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carpenter (1-4) took the loss and allowed eight runs (six earned) on eight hits and four walks while striking out two over three innings Friday against the Indians. He was optioned to Triple-A Toledo following the contest.

Carpenter has been lit up for 14 runs over his last two starts, so the Tigers have elected to demote the lefty. Gregory Soto will be recalled from Triple-A prior to Saturday's matchup in a corresponding move.

Tigers' Ryan Carpenter: Gives up eight runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carpenter (1-3) gave up eight runs on 10 hits and one walk while striking out one through 3.2 innings to take the loss against the Twins on Sunday.

Carpenter gave up three runs in the first inning, and things didn't improve much as he was chased from the game in the fourth inning after giving up another five runs. After two shaky starts, the 28-year-old had only allowed five runs through three starts before this shelling. He has a 1-3 record with a 7.89 ERA through six starts this season. Carpenter will try for better results in his next start Saturday against the Indians.

Tigers' Ryan Carpenter: Delivers seven strong innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carpenter (1-2) earned the win with two runs allowed on seven hits over seven innings Tuesday against the Rays. He struck out three and did not issue a walk.

Carpenter finished the evening at 84 pitches, and had to watch as the bullpen nearly blow the game by allowing a grand slam. It's the first time the 28-year-old has worked more than five innings this season. Carpenter has a 6.23 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 18:6 K:BB through 19 innings and should take the mound Sunday versus the Twins.

Tigers' Ryan Carpenter: Works five innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carpenter allowed two earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out three across five innings Wednesday against the Tigers. He did not factor into the decision.

Carpenter worked relatively efficiently against the poor Orioles lineup, needing only 79 pitches to generate 15 outs. He surrendered runs in the first and fourth frames, one of which came on a solo home run by Keon Broxton. Even after this relatively productive outing, Carpenter has a 7.58 ERA and 1.47 WHIP across 19 innings and four starts. He'll draw a tougher matchup in his next outing, as he's currently slated to face Tampa Bay at home on Tuesday.

Tigers' Ryan Carpenter: Returning on short rest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carpenter will pitch on short rest Wednesday against the Orioles, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Carpenter threw just 56 pitches in his previous outing Saturday against the Mets, so it's possible he won't be too affected by the quick turnaround. Whether he'll be an interesting fantasy option even if unaffected by the short rest is another question; he's allowed 16 runs (14 earned) in 14 innings so far this season.

Tigers' Ryan Carpenter: Yields two hits in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carpenter allowed two runs (one earned) on two hits with five strikeouts and no walks across five innings in a no-decision against the Mets on Saturday.

The 28-year-old retired nine of the first 10 batters he faced, but unfortunately, the one he didn't hit a home run. Carpenter then yielded an unearned run in the fourth. The Tigers took their first lead before Carpenter departed in the fifth, but the Detroit bullpen gave it up in the next inning, costing Carpenter a chance at a victory. He's still looking for his first win, but this was certainly his best outing of the year. It was Carpenter's first MLB start since May 14, and in his two previous outings, he allowed 13 earned runs in nine innings. Overall, Carpenter is 0-2 with a 9.00 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 12 strikeouts in 14 innings this season.

Tigers' Ryan Carpenter: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carpenter will start Saturday's game against the Mets, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Carpenter was demoted to the minors following a disastrous start against the Astros in mid-May, but the Tigers will give him another shot to toe the rubber. He's surrendered 13 runs and struck out seven over nine innings (two starts) this year in the big leagues.

May 15, 2019 06:08 PM
Tigers' Ryan Carpenter: Demoted after poor start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carpenter was optioned to Triple-A Toledo following Tuesday's start against the Astros, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Carpenter had another rough outing Tuesday, giving up eight runs (seven earned) over four innings, and now owns a 13.00 ERA, 2.33 WHIP and 7:4 K:BB through two starts this season. The 28-year-old also struggled in six starts last year for the Tigers, and has allowed 12 home runs across only 31.1 big-league innings.

Tigers' Ryan Carpenter: Gets rocked again in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carpenter (0-2) allowed eight runs (seven earned) across four innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Astros. He gave up nine hits and three walks while striking out five.

The five strikeouts were about the only positive for Carpenter, who was hit around for the second straight start. Through nine innings of work this season, the lefty has allowed 17 hits and 14 runs (13 earned). With the Tigers currently missing Jordan Zimmermann (elbow) and Tyson Ross (elbow), and Matt Moore (knee) and Michael Fulmer (elbow) out for the season, Carpenter figures to stick in the rotation for the time being. However, his recent results make him very hard to trust in fantasy. Carpenter is currently lined up to face the Athletics on Sunday for his next start.
