Tigers' Gregory Soto: Likely to earn bullpen role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto will likely earn a spot in the Tigers' bullpen when the regular season is able to start, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

It is generally expected that MLB teams will be allowed to have up to 30 players when the season begins, which only helps Soto's chances as teams will likely deepen their bullpens. The southpaw struggled as a starter in 2019 but showed flashes as a reliever, and he could end up as Detroit's main lefty out of the bullpen in 2020 if he pitches well.

Tigers' Gregory Soto: Looks sharp early in spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto hit 98 mph on the radar gun Tuesday and has looked impressive to begin camp, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

After a strong showing in the Dominican winter league, where he allowed just one run and struck out 16 across 11 innings of work, Soto seems to be carrying over some momentum. The 25-year-old lefty showed flashes last year out of the bullpen, posting a 3.93 ERA in 34 innings of relief, and he could earn more high-leverage work this season.

Tigers' Gregory Soto: Pitches well in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto pitched three scoreless innings of relief in Wednesday's 4-0 loss to the Phillies. He allowed two hits and a walk while recording two strikeouts.

Soto, who was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Saturday, has made seven starts for the Tigers this season, but he's operating out of the bullpen for now. The 24-year-old lefty has an unsightly 7.88 ERA, though Wednesday's long-relief effort was a step in the right direction. With Detroit sitting at 30-67, Soto should continue to get opportunities as the team assesses young players for 2020 and beyond.

Tigers' Gregory Soto: Returns to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto was recalled by the Tigers on Saturday.

Soto has seven starts and two relief appearances for the Tigers this season, stumbling to a 7.24 ERA while striking out just 15.6 percent of opposing batters. Starter Spencer Turnbull (back) landed on the injured list in a corresponding move, but Soto will pitch out of the bullpen for now, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Tigers' Gregory Soto: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers optioned Soto to Triple-A Toledo following Sunday's 12-8 win over the Royals.

After Soto closed out the first half as a member of the rotation, the Tigers shifted him to the bullpen coming out of the All-Star break. He was stellar in his lone appearance in long relief over the weekend in Kansas City, striking out three and allowing one hit and no walks over three scoreless frames in Friday's loss. Detroit may have chosen to send Soto back to Toledo so he can continue his development as a starter.

Tigers' Gregory Soto: Moves to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto has moved to the Tigers' bullpen for the time being, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

While McCosky says Soto has been moved to the bullpen "for now", it is unclear who the Tigers' fifth starter will be. If Soto is not used in any of Detroit's first four games of the second half, he could still theoretically start July 16 in Cleveland. Regardless of his role, Soto is pretty unappealing in all formats. Ryan Carpenter, who has been pitching fairly well recently at Triple-A, would line up to make that start if Detroit opts to call upon a minor-league starter.

Tigers' Gregory Soto: Drops to 0-3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto (0-3) took the loss Sunday against the Red Sox, allowing two runs on three hits across two innings of work. He struck out one and did not issue a walk.

Soto threw 24 pitches out of the bullpen Friday, so the lefty wasn't asked to go long in this one, and he departed after throwing just 41 pitches. The 24-year-old has had a rough first half with an 8.14 ERA and 1.85 WHIP across 24.1 innings, but the rebuilding Tigers will likely continue to see what they have in Soto.

Tigers' Gregory Soto: Opening for bullpen day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto will serve as the opener Sunday against the Red Sox, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Soto threw 24 pitches out of the bullpen Friday and won't be asked to deliver a starter's workload in Sunday's series finale. The Tigers likely have a flexible pitching plan as they finish the season's first half with a bullpen day.

Tigers' Gregory Soto: No longer starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto is no longer listed as the starter for Friday's game against the Red Sox.

Soto had previously been reported as the starter for both Friday and Saturday's contests. Ryan Carpenter will start Friday, with the Tigers not listing a projected pitcher for Saturday and Sunday, one of which will likely go to Soto.

Tigers' Gregory Soto: Set to start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto is listed as the starting pitcher for Friday's game against the Red Sox.

Soto originally lined up to start Saturday but the Tigers shuffled their rotation a bit in advance of the All-Star break. The 24-year-old has a 8.44 ERA, 1.88 WHIP and 15:12 K:BB over 21.1 innings and has yet to complete five frames in any of his six starts.

Tigers' Gregory Soto: Next starting coming Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto is scheduled to make his next start with the Tigers on Saturday against the Red Sox, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Manager Ron Gardenhire confirmed over the weekend that Soto would receive another turn through the rotation, despite having posted an 8.44 ERA, 1.88 WHIP and 15:12 K:BB in 21.1 innings over his prior six starts this season. Soto initially appeared in line to start Thursday's series finale with the White Sox, but he'll now be pushed back two days after Tuesday's contest was postponed. While he'll have the luxury of pitching at home rather than on the road, Soto will draw a tougher matchup in the Red Sox, the majors' sixth-best offense in terms of wRC+ (108).

Tigers' Gregory Soto: Set to get another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Ron Gardenhire said that Soto would receive another turn in Detroit's rotation before the All-Star break, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. "He's going to be here," Gardenhire said of the left-hander. "He'll get another start [probably Thursday in Chicago]. We've got a lot of games coming up here."

Soto was called up from Triple-A Toledo to start Sunday's series finale with the Nationals and didn't do much to impress, lasting only 3.2 innings and giving up three runs on four hits and one walk. Gardenhire noted that he came away from the outing happy with Soto's fastball -- he was clocked in the 96-to-98 mile-per-hour range in the first inning -- so that looks like it'll be enough for the southpaw to pick up his seventh big-league start. Even though Soto sports an 8.44 ERA and 1.88 WHIP thus far with the Tigers, the organization doesn't really have many appealing alternatives for the back end of the rotation unless it's willing to start top prospect Matt Manning's MLB service clock.

Tigers' Gregory Soto: Yields three runs in 3.2 innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto allowed three runs on four hits with a walk and strikeout across 3.2 innings in a no-decision against the Nationals on Saturday.

Both starters in this one made it through the first three frames unscathed, but Soto couldn't finish the fourth. Three Nationals reached base in that frame and knocked Soto out of the game. Detroit came back to tie, though, so Soto avoided a loss. Still, this performance erases all the good feelings he gave the organization after he threw four scoreless innings in his last outing two weeks ago. He is 0-2 with a 8.83 ERA, 1.96 WHIP and 12 strikeouts in 17.1 MLB innings this season. If Soto sticks around the big club for one more start before the All-Star break, his turn in the rotation will come up again Thursday on the road against the White Sox.

Tigers' Gregory Soto: To start Saturday against Nats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto will be recalled to start Saturday's game against the Nationals, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

The 24-year-old lefty has a 7.52 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 25:12 K:BB in 20.1 innings (five appearances) at Triple-A. He should be able to stick in the big-league rotation for one more turn before the All-Star break, but he is a low-end fantasy option regardless of the format.

June 16, 2019 04:32 PM
Tigers' Gregory Soto: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers optioned Soto to Triple-A Toledo on Sunday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Soto turned in the best outing of his young MLB career after receiving the callup from Triple-A Toledo to start Saturday's game against the Indians. He worked four scoreless frames in the contest and should rank near the top of the list for another start when the Tigers next require a fifth man in the rotation, but a pair of off days during the upcoming weekend will allow Detroit to get by with a short-handed staff for the time being.

Tigers' Gregory Soto: Tosses four shutout frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto pitched four scoreless innings, allowing two hits with four walks and three strikeouts in a no-decision against the Indians on Saturday.

The 24-year-old left in a scoreless game after four innings, so he's still waiting for his first major-league win, but the good news is Soto pitched a lot better in this outing. Even with the four shutout frames, he owns a 9.22 ERA, 2.12 WHIP and .339 batting average against, which really just indicates how poorly he performed in his first four appearances this season. If Soto has earned another start with the Tigers, his next turn in the rotation will come in Cleveland next Saturday.

Tigers' Gregory Soto: Promoted to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto will be recalled from Triple-A Toledo prior to Saturday's game against the Indians. He's expected to start that contest.

Soto made four starts earlier this season while with Detroit, but he struggled to an 11.20 ERA with an 11:7 K:BB over 13.2 innings. He'll get another shot after Ryan Carpenter was demoted to the minors following a disastrous outing Friday night.

May 25, 2019 11:20 PM
Tigers' Gregory Soto: Returns to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto was optioned to Triple-A Toledo following Saturday's loss to the Mets.

Soto had a rough start Friday when he allowed five runs on six hits across 3.2 innings. The 24-year-old has an 11.20 ERA, 2.12 WHIP and 11:7 K:BB over his first four major-league starts.

Tigers' Gregory Soto: Roughed up by Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto yielded five runs on six hits and a walk while striking out four over 3.2 innings Friday night in a no-decision against the Mets.

Soto was handed an early 4-0 lead heading into the third inning, but he gave up a solo homer in the bottom of the third followed by four more runs in the fourth prior to being removed. Luckily, his offense bailed him out by scoring nine runs on the way to victory. The 24-year-old southpaw has struggled so far this season in the majors, accruing a 13.03 ERA and 2.38 WHIP with eight strikeouts across 9.2 frames.

Tigers' Gregory Soto: Takes second loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto (0-2) allowed two runs on three hits across two innings of work Wednesday against the Astros to take the loss. He walked two and struck out three

Soto was only expected to go a few innings after firing 88 pitches in his big-league debut Saturday, and the Tigers were true to their word, limiting the 24-year-old to just two innings and 47 pitches. The lefty is expected to stick in the rotation moving forward with Ryan Carpenter getting optioned to Triple-A Toledo. Soto figures to face a limited pitch count again in his next scheduled start Sunday against the Athletics.
