Skubal (6-9) allowed five runs across five innings to take the loss Sunday against the Royals. He gave up five hits and no walks while striking out four.
Home runs did in Skubal in this one, as the lefty allowed three long balls, including a three-run bomb to Salvador Perez just three batters into the game. Skubal has had some good moments in his second MLB season, and his ERA sits at a respectable 4.42, but he's still seeking more consistency. He's allowed exactly five earned runs in two of his last four starts, but he gave up just four earned runs combined across 12 innings in the other two outings. Skubal will look for better results in his next scheduled start Friday against the Orioles.
Skubal (6-8) allowed one run on four hits while striking out four over six innings, getting the win in Detroit's 4-1 victory over Texas on Tuesday night.
Skubal looked like he was headed for a rough night after allowing a double and a single in the first inning, however the Tigers were able to nab Rangers left fielder Eli White on an attempted steal of home to get the young left-hander out of the inning. From that point forward, Skubal allowed just two more hits over the course of a stellar six-inning outing. While the four strikeouts are a little disappointing, the Seattle University product didn't walk a batter for the first time since April 25. His next start will likely come Sunday against the Royals.
Skubal (5-8) lost Thursday's 5-3 game at the hands of the Twins, allowing five runs (three earned) on six hits and a walk with five strikeouts in six innings.
Skubal had only surrendered two runs through six innings but permitted a game-tying Miguel Sano home run to begin the seventh, then he gave up a single and error before departing. The latter two runners eventually scored and Skubal was saddled with the loss despite the quality start, his first in eight turns.
Skubal (5-7) earned the win Saturday against the White Sox despite allowing five runs on eight hits and a walk while fanning six across five innings.
Skubal left the game before the beginning of the sixth after tossing 94 pitches (65 strikes). While his numbers were not impressive, the offense backed him up enough to give him his fifth win of the campaign. This outing ended a streak of eight appearances in which Skubal allowed three or fewer runs, and he logged four quality starts in that stretch. His ERA stands at 4.35 for the season. He's scheduled to pitch again next week on the road against Minnesota.
Skubal allowed a run on one hit and three walks while striking out nine in seven innings Sunday versus Houston. He did not factor in the decision.
Were it not for an RBI single from Akil Baddoo in the bottom of the seventh, Skubal could have ended up with a hard-luck loss. Instead, he'll settle for a quality start in his longest outing of the year, during which he threw 102 pitches (62 strikes). The southpaw has a 4.06 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 94:36 K:BB across 77.2 innings. Across his last 10 starts, he's allowed more than three runs only twice as he settles into his second major-league campaign. He projects to make his next start versus the AL Central-leading White Sox next weekend.
Skubal allowed two runs across 4.2 innings and did not factor into the decision in Tuesday's win over the Cardinals. He gave up four hits and two walks while striking out four.
Skubal needed just one more out to qualify for his fifth win of the season, but the lefty tossed 97 pitches to retire 14 batters, so manager A.J. Hinch decided not to push him any further. The 24-year-old came into Tuesday's start having gone five innings or more in eight straight outings, and even though he was less efficient in this one, he still put the Tigers in a position to grab the victory. Skubal now has a 4.33 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 85 strikeouts across 70.2 innings this season. He lines up to face the Astros in his next scheduled start Sunday.
Skubal (4-7) allowed three runs on six hits and two walks with seven strikeouts in six innings to earn the win versus Kansas City on Wednesday.
The southpaw gave up a solo home run to Adalberto Mondesi and a two-run shot to Salvador Perez. Skubal has had some trouble with the long ball this year, as he's now allowed six homers in 14 appearances (12 starts). The 24-year-old has a 4.36 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 81:31 K:BB across 66 innings. All four of his wins have come within his last six starts, and he hasn't given up more than three earned runs in any outing in that span. Skubal lines up for a home start versus St. Louis next week.
Skubal didn't factor into the decision Friday against the White Sox after giving up four runs (three earned) on seven hits and three walks while fanning six across six innings.
Skubal posted his second quality start of the season, and both have come over his last three outings. The left-hander has been pitching well of late and has allowed three or fewer runs in each of his last five outings, posting a 2.67 ERA and an excellent 14.3 K/9 in that span (27 innings).
Skubal (3-7) earned the win Saturday against the White Sox, allowing one run on four hits and three walks while punching out 11 across five innings.
Skubal entered Saturday's start coming off a dominant outing in which he struck out eight across six scoreless innings against the Yankees. Although he wasn't especially efficient Saturday, his swing-and-miss stuff was very present against a dangerous White Sox lineup. Following the strong outing, Skubal now has a 4.33 ERA to go along with a 68:26 K:BB through 54 innings this season. He lines up to take the hill again Friday in a rematch with the White Sox.
Skubal (2-7) earned the win Sunday against the Yankees after tossing six scoreless innings, giving up three hits and three walks while striking out eight.
Skubal clinched his second win of the campaign in dominant fashion, as he recorded his first quality start of the season while also fanning at least eight for the fourth time over his last five appearances. Skubal owns a 39:9 K:BB over that five-game stretch during the current month and will try to keep things going in his next start, scheduled for next week against the White Sox on the road.
Skubal (1-7) was charged with the loss Tuesday against Cleveland after allowing two runs on six hits and a walk while striking out nine over five innings.
For the second straight start, Skubal whiffed a season-high-tying nine batters, throwing 55 of 93 pitches for strikes this time around. After giving up a leadoff solo homer to Cesar Hernandez in the first inning, the 24-year-old straightened things out until faltering slightly in the fourth inning when he gave up a single, a double and a run-scoring groundout. Per usual, Skubal did not receive enough run support from his teammates, saddling him with his seventh loss of the year, tied for the most in the majors. Still, his 5.23 ERA and 1.51 WHIP aren't doing the southpaw any favors. Skubal has a tough battle ahead in his next projected start Sunday against the Yankees.
Skubal (1-6) earned the win over Seattle on Wednesday, allowing two runs on four hits and two walks over five innings. He struck out nine.
The southpaw got off the schneid after losing his first six decisions of the campaign. Skubal notched a season-high nine strikeouts in the contest and was in control after yielding two runs in the first inning. He induced an impressive 18 swinging strikes and lowered his season ERA to 5.45. Skubal has shown marked improvement over his past three appearances, logging a 4.50 ERA and a 22:5 K:BB across 16 innings. His next start is expected to take place at home against Cleveland early next week.
Skubal (0-6) took the loss Friday as the Tigers fell 4-2 to the Cubs, giving up four runs on eight hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out five.
The young southpaw continues to come up short in his quest for his first win of 2021, but he did toss 64 of 95 pitches for strikes in what was his longest outing of the season to date. Skubal will carry a 5.73 ERA and 31:17 K:BB through 33 innings into his next start.
Skubal (0-5) took the loss Friday versus Minnesota. He allowed two runs on four hits and two walks with eight strikeouts in five innings.
Skubal gave up solo home runs to Kyle Garlick and Jorge Polanco, which accounted for all the runs against the 24-year-old starter. Through 27 innings, Skubal has a 5.67 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 26:16 K:BB in seven appearances. He's now surrendered 10 home runs -- cutting his walk rate and keeping the ball in the yard will be key factors in the southpaw's development this season. Skubal projects to make his next start at home versus Kansas City next week.
Skubal (0-4) allowed four runs on five hits and two walks while striking out one in three innings to take the loss against the Yankees on Friday.
Skubal had been piggybacking with Michael Fulmer recently, but he started Friday's contest. However, he was hit hard early in the contest and gave up runs in each of the first three innings prior to his removal. As a result, Skubal was forced to settle for his fourth loss in his last five appearances. The southpaw now carries a 6.14 ERA and 1.68 WHIP in 22 innings this season. He could make his next appearance on the road against Boston on Thursday.
Skubal will start Friday against the Yankees, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Skubal was expected to pitch in some capacity in this game, but he had been piggybacking with Michael Fulmer recently. Instead of continuing with that arrangement, Fulmer will be available out of the bullpen Wednesday and Thursday. Skubal has not thrown more than four innings in an outing since his first appearance of the year, when he went 5.1 innings against Cleveland on April 4.
Skubal (0-3) allowed two runs on four hits and no walks while striking out three in 2.2 innings to take the loss against the Royals on Sunday.
Skubal pitched in a piggyback role behind Michael Fulmer once again Sunday. He tossed 61 pitches across his 2.2 innings, but he was charged with his third loss of the year since the Tigers' offense failed to record any runs. Skubal has now posted a 5.21 ERA and 1.58 WHIP in 19 innings this season.
Skubal is slated to work in relief Sunday against the Royals after Michael Fulmer makes an abbreviated start, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.
Detroit manager A.J. Hinch didn't specify how long Fulmer would go and didn't say Skubal will follow him immediately, but the lefty should work at least a handful of innings in Sunday's game. Skubal last appeared Wednesday, when he pitched three scoreless innings in relief following a four-inning start by Fulmer, so that could give some idea of how things will break down as long as the two pitchers are working in a tandem, though Fulmer is on short rest Sunday and may be pulled earlier than usual.
Skubal pitched three scoreless innings in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader versus the Pirates, allowing three hits and three walks while striking out two. He did not factor into the decision.
Skubal piggybacked with Michael Fulmer, and the two pitchers were able to preserve the Tigers' bullpen for the nightcap. Skubal was the more effective of the two, although he allowed more baserunners than Fulmer. The 24-year-old Skubal is 0-2 with a 4.96 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 14:12 K:BB through 16.1 innings this year. For now, the southpaw is expected to work as a multi-inning reliever as the Tigers manage his innings this season.
Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said Skubal will serve as a piggyback starter behind Michael Fulmer in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Pirates, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.
Hinch initially planned for Skubal to piggyback Spencer Turnbull (COVID-19 injured list) in the latter's season debut, but the team elected to alter its pitching schedule following Tuesday's postponement. The skipper noted that Fulmer will work about 2-to-3 innings before turning the game over to Skubal, who will likely face a similar limitation with his workload.
