Tigers' Alex Lange: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers placed Lange (shoulder) on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a right shoulder strain.

Lange exited Monday's game after suffering the injury. The righty has been an oft-used yet unreliable relief option for the Tigers, posting a 7.31 ERA and allowing five home runs in 16 innings this season.

Tigers' Alex Lange: Likely headed to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lange will likely require a stint on the 10-day injured list after leaving Monday's game against Kansas City due to shoulder discomfort, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

The Tigers have yet to make the move official, but skipper A.J. Hinch stated after the game that there's a good chance Lange will need a trip to the injured list.

Tigers' Alex Lange: Nursing shoulder issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lange will be considered day-to-day until further notice. He's appeared in three contests since being recalled Thursday, allowing three runs over 2.2 innings.

Tigers' Alex Lange: Exits due to injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lange was visited by the team trainer in the fifth inning and ultimately had to leave the contest. Details on the injury have yet to surface.

Tigers' Alex Lange: Called up to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers recalled Lange from Triple-A Toledo on Thursday.

Derek Holland (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. With Detroit turning to Tyler Alexander to lead off a bullpen game in Thursday's series finale with the Mariners, Lange could get a chance to cover an inning or two in relief behind the lefty. Lange has previously made 15 appearances out of the Detroit bullpen this season, posting a 7.43 ERA, 1.73 WHIP and 16:4 K:BB in 13.1 innings.

Tigers' Alex Lange: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lange was optioned to Triple-A Toledo after Sunday's loss to the Cubs.

Lange delivered a scoreless inning Sunday but has mostly struggled with a 7.43 ERA this season. The 25-year-old will attempt to get back on track at Triple-A.

Tigers' Alex Lange: Recalled Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lange was recalled from the taxi squad prior to Saturday's game in Cleveland.

Julio Teheran landed on the injured list with a right shoulder strain, so Lange joins the bullpen in a corresponding move. It may be a short stay with the big club, as Lange could be sent to the alternate site whenever the Tigers promote Teheran's replacement in the rotation.

Tigers' Alex Lange: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers optioned Lange to Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday.

Lange held opposing hitters to a .167 average and struck out three over 3.1 innings this spring, but it wasn't enough for him to remain in the competition for a spot in Detroit's Opening Day bullpen. The 25-year-old will be a candidate to make his MLB debut later in 2021.

Tigers' Alex Lange: Will compete for bullpen spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lange will be competing for a bullpen spot with the Tigers this spring, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Lange is one of several young Detroit arms who will be vying for one of the final bullpen spots. The 25-year-old, who came to the Tigers in the Nicholas Castellanos trade, has yet to appear above the Double-A level. He will likely begin the 2021 campaign with Triple-A Toledo and could get a shot in the majors at some point during the season.

Tigers' Alex Lange: Added to 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lange was added to the Tigers' 40-man roster Friday.

The move protects Lange from the Rule 5 draft. The 25-year-old righty was a member of the Tigers' player pool this season but did not get the chance to make his big-league debut. In 54.2 innings at the Double-A level in 2019, Lange recorded a 3.79 ERA, though that came with an unimpressive combination of an 18.8 percent strikeout rate and an 11.8 percent walk rate.

Tigers' Alex Lange: Added to 60-man pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lange was added to the Tigers' 60-man player pool Wednesday, Emily Waldon of The Athletic reports.

The Tigers still had a few open spots on their summer camp roster, so they added Lange, who came to the organization last year as part of the Nicholas Castellanos trade. The 24-year-old worked at Double-A Erie after the trade, posting a 3.45 ERA and 15 strikeouts across 15.2 innings. He should serve as organizational depth and likely won't appear in the majors this season.

Tigers' Alex Lange: Traded to Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lange was traded along with Paul Richan from the Cubs to the Tigers on Wednesday in exchange for Nicholas Castellanos, Craig Mish of FNTSY Sports Radio reports.

Lange was taken with the 30th-overall pick by the Cubs back in 2017. He doesn't look like much more than a back-end starter or reliever as neither his repertoire nor command are particularly impressive. In 216.1 innings as a professional, he owns a 4.62 ERA, a 20.7 percent strikeout rate and a 9.2 percent walk rate.

Cubs' Alex Lange: Pitching well this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Through 14 starts with High-A Myrtle Beach this year, Lange is 5-5 with a 3.39 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 66 strikeouts in 74.1 innings.

After a brief stint with short-season Eugene last year, the Cubs' 2017 first-round pick has looked good in his first full professional season. As a 22-year-old who spent three seasons at LSU, Lange could be ready to move up to Double-A later this year if he keeps pitching well. He profiles as a low-ceiling, high-floor prospect who could be a solid piece toward the back of an MLB rotation.
