Detroit placed Brieske on the 15-day injured list to start the season due to what was described as right arm discomfort, and now the specifics of his injury have been revealed. The Tigers don't have a timetable in place for the 25-year-old righty to make his season debut, and even though he's set to resume throwing soon, he'll still likely need multiple weeks to complete his progression....

Brieske (arm) continues to receive further medical evaluation, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Brieske is on the injured list to begin the year with right upper arm discomfort, and there's still no word as to when the right-hander will be ready to return.

Tigers' Beau Brieske: Lands on 15-day injured list
Brieske was placed on the 15-day injured list by the Tigers on Thursday with right upper arm discomfort.

Tigers' Beau Brieske: Likely headed to injured list
Brieske (undisclosed) will likely start the year on the injured list, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.
It's not yet known what will cause Brieske to miss time. The right-hander was considered a potential starter to begin the year for the Tigers, but that obviously won't take place now. The 24-year-old held his own in 15 starts with Detroit in 2022 with a 4.19 ERA and 54:25 K:BB over 81.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Beau Brieske: Managing arm discomfort
The Tigers announced Wednesday that Brieske is experiencing right upper arm discomfort following his most recent Grapefruit League outing last Friday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Brieske is slated to undergo further medical evaluation before the Tigers provide a more precise diagnosis of his injury, but Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press already reported earlier Wednesday that the 24-year-old right-hander is set to begin the season on the 15-day injured list. Expect Detroit to make that transaction official shortly before Thursday's season opener versus the Rays. With Brieske out of contention for a spot on the Opening Day roster, Garrett Hill will make the team as a long reliever and potential spot-starting option if Matthew Boyd (undisclosed) is forced to miss his first turn through the rotation this weekend in Tampa Bay....

Tigers' Beau Brieske: Option to fill in as starter?
With Michael Lorenzen (groin) uncertain to make his final Grapefruit League start, per Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press, Brieske could be an option to fill the fifth rotation spot to begin the regular season.
Lorenzen is projected to be the team's regular No. 5 starter, but his groin strain has his status up in the air heading into the regular season. The Tigers are lined up to use their fifth starter April 4 against Houston, so Brieske or Joey Wentz may be needed if Lorenzen can't go. Brieske made 15 starts for Detroit last year and compiled a 4.19 ERA across 81.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Beau Brieske: Struggling this spring
Brieske, who allowed two runs across two innings in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals, has a 9.35 ERA this spring.
Brieske has allowed nine earned runs across 8.2 innings this spring, and home runs have been an issue, as he's allowed four of them so far. The righty had a decent 4.19 ERA across 15 starts for the Tigers as a rookie last year, though he's ticketed for a long-relief role this season. He'll be off the fantasy radar unless he picks up some starts down the road, and he'll need to pitch better than he has this spring to be effective.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Beau Brieske: Possible bullpen option
Brieske may begin the year in Detroit's bullpen after working exclusively as a starter in 2022, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Brieske made 15 starts for the Tigers last year and compiled a decent 4.19 ERA to go with a 1.20 WHIP. However, Detroit was decimated by injuries, and the likes of Eduardo Rodriguez, Matthew Boyd and Spencer Turnbull appear to now be healthy heading into camp. That trio, along with Matt Manning and Michael Lorenzen, seem like favorites for rotation spots. That would push Brieske into a relief role, though he could definitely push to start again at some point during the year.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Beau Brieske: Back to throwing
Detroit announced Tuesday that Brieske (forearm) is fully healthy and participating in his normal offseason program, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.
Brieske went down with forearm soreness in July and experienced biceps tendinitis while going through his rehab program, but he's now healthy after he missed the final three months of 2022. The young right-hander had a 4.19 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 54:25 K:BB across 81.2 innings during his rookie campaign last year, and he should be in the mix for a rotation spot at spring training....

Tigers' Beau Brieske: Done for season
Brieske (right forearm soreness) will not return this season, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
His rehab is nearly done, but he's run out of time to make a responsible return to the big-league rotation. Brieske, 24, had a 4.19 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 54 strikeouts in 81.2 innings over 15 starts in the majors this year as a rookie.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Beau Brieske: Completes bullpen session
Brieske (biceps) threw a bullpen session Friday with no issues, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
The right-hander has been sidelined by forearm soreness and biceps tendinitis since late July, but it appears he's now fully past the injuries. The Tigers must now decide whether to continue ramping up Brieske's workload so he can either take the mound over the final couple weeks of the season or transition straight to his offseason program. The 24-year-old had a 4.19 ERA in 15 starts for Detroit prior to the injuries, but even if he returns this year, he won't be built up enough to reclaim that role.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Beau Brieske: Playing catch
Brieske (forearm/biceps) is playing catch and doing well, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.
Brieske has been out since mid-July, first with forearm soreness and then with biceps tendinitis. He'll have the chance to return in September if he continues to trend in the right direction.... See More ... See Less
