Top Beau Brieske News

  • Tigers' Beau Brieske: Makes season debut Wednesday

    Brieske tossed a scoreless inning of relief in Wednesday's 2-0 loss to the Marlins. He allowed a hit and a walk, while striking out one.

    Brieske was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Monday and made his 2024 debut for the Tigers in this one. The righty, who made 15 starts for Detroit back in 2022, worked exclusively in relief for Toledo, where he compiled a strong 2.95 ERA and 22:11 K:BB over 21.2 innings. However, as a former starter, Brieske may be able to give the Tigers some length from the bullpen for however long he sticks around.

  • Tigers' Beau Brieske: Recalled from Triple-A

    The Tigers recalled Brieske from Triple-A Toledo on Monday.

    Brieske has spent all of 2024 at Toledo, holding a 2.95 ERA and 22:11 K:BB over 21.2 frames. The right-hander has been used exclusively in relief for the first time this season but has gone multiple innings in eight of his 13 appearances, so he could offer some length to Detroit's bullpen.

  • Tigers' Beau Brieske: Optioned to Triple-A

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

    He was in the mix for one of the final spots in the Tigers' bullpen, but the team ultimately went with Joey Wentz and Alex Faedo. Brieske has experience both as a starter and a reliever, and it's not clear which role the club has planned for him at Toledo.

  • Tigers' Beau Brieske: Working with new slider grip

    Brieske has adjusted the grip on his slider over the offseason to give the pitch more spin, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

    Brieske said his previous slider acted more like a cutter at times, but he's adjusted his grip to hold the ball deeper in his hand and develop more spin. In his first spring appearance, the average spin rate of the pitch sat at 2,399 rpm, up 200 revolutions from last season, while the slider's speed was down a few ticks. He followed that performance with two more scoreless innings Saturday. Brieske had some success in a bullpen role last year, posting a 3.60 ERA across 35 innings, and he could take a step forward if his new slider is effective.

  • Tigers' Beau Brieske: Covers two scoreless innings

    Brieske tossed two scoreless innings of relief in Saturday's extra-inning win over the Angels. He didn't allow any hits or walks and struck out three.

    After Sawyer Gipson-Long pitched five effective innings to start the game, Brieske cruised through the seventh and eighth. The righty has worked almost exclusively as a reliever this year, with just one start in 22 appearances. Brieske has been fairly good in the role with a 3.99 ERA, and it's possible he rejoins the rotation mix in 2024 after making 15 starts last year for the Tigers.

  • Tigers' Beau Brieske: Takes loss Wednesday

    Brieske (1-3) allowed three runs on four hits across 1.2 innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Yankees. He walked three and had no strikeouts.

    Brieske was forced into action in the second inning after starter Matt Manning left early with what was later determined to be a fractured right foot. The former struggled, but it can be somewhat forgiven considering the tough circumstances. Brieske made 15 starts for the Tigers last season and could slot into the rotation with Manning out, though he's only made one start this season as he's shifted into more of a relief role. Joey Wentz, who's made 17 starts this year, will likely get the first opportunity. Wentz has a rough 6.65 ERA, however, so Brieske may at least be needed to cover some more innings out of the bullpen.

  • Tigers' Beau Brieske: Takes first loss Monday

    Brieske (0-1) allowed two runs on three hits across an inning of work to take the loss Monday against the Cubs.

    Brieske had been fairly sharp before Monday, as he entered the contest with a tidy 2.12 ERA over 17 innings of work. The righty had also only allowed one run this month, but the Cubs got to him in the ninth inning, pushing his ERA to 3.00 for the season. Brieske should stick in a high-leverage relief role for the Tigers despite the hiccup.

  • Tigers' Beau Brieske: Earns two-inning save

    Brieske fired two perfect innings to pick up the save Thursday against the Twins.

    Brieske was called upon in the eighth inning to preserve a 3-0 lead and delivered two perfect innings to secure the save. With two of the team's last three saves, the 25-year-old has added another layer of complexity to Detroit's bullpen hierarchy.

  • Tigers' Beau Brieske: Records first career save

    Brieske retired the final batter in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Rays via strikeout to record the save.

    Brieske came on for Alex Lange, who recorded the first two outs of the inning but also walked three batters and tossed 20 pitches. It's too early to say there's a change in the closer role for Detroit, as Lange leads the team with 17 saves and should have some job security. However, it seems that Brieske could be an option for the role if the Tigers decide to make a switch at some point.

  • Tigers' Beau Brieske: Hurls two scoreless frames

    Brieske did not factor into the decision Saturday, allowing three hits over two scoreless innings against the Marlins while striking out two.

    Brieske allowed a leadoff single to Luis Arraez to open the bottom of the first but managed to retire the next three batters, two by way of strikeout. The right-hander would come back out to pitch a scoreless second inning before being relieved by Joey Wentz to open the third. Brieske has not allowed a run in four of his six appearances this month and has issued just one walk over that six-game stretch while notching seven strikeouts.

  • Tigers' Beau Brieske: Set for opener duty

    Brieske will serve as the opener for Saturday's game against the Marlins, Paige Leckie of MLB.com reports.

    Brieske debuted as a starter but has pitched exclusively in relief in the majors this season, maxing out at 20 pitches in an appearance. It's uncertain who will follow Brieske in Saturday's contest. The Tigers could make a roster move to add an arm like Joey Wentz, or they could go with more of a bullpen game instead of an opener-bulk reliever arrangement.

  • Tigers' Beau Brieske: Returns from injured list

    Brieske (elbow) was activated off the 60-day injured list Saturday.

    Brieske has been out all year due to elbow troubles but is ready to go after posting a 2.70 ERA across 11 rehab appearances. He pitched exclusively as a starter as a rookie last season, posting a 4.19 ERA in 15 starts, but he's now working as a reliever since the Tigers elected not to build him up to a starter's workload during his rehab assignment.

  • Tigers' Beau Brieske: Rehab moved to Triple-A

    Brieske's (elbow) rehab assignment was transferred to Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

    Brieske fared well in his two appearances with High-A West Michigan, throwing two scoreless innings while striking out two batters and walking one. He'll pitch an inning during Toledo's game Tuesday and will likely make a few additional rehab appearances before rejoining the Tigers.

  • Tigers' Beau Brieske: Works in relief in rehab outing

    Brieske (elbow) tossed a no-hit scoreless inning out of the bullpen in his most recent rehab outing Saturday with High-A West Michigan, issuing one walk in a 17-pitch appearance.

    Though he was a full-time starter in the minors and majors in 2021 and 2022, Brieske has now made a pair of one-inning appearances in both of his first two rehab outings as he works his way back from the hydrodissection procedure he underwent in April to treat a nerve issue in his right elbow. The Tigers haven't clarified that they intend to bring Brieske back from the 60-day injured list as a reliever, but with rehabbing starters Tarik Skubal (elbow) and Matt Manning (foot) both on similar timelines for activation, Detroit might not have room in the rotation for Brieske anyway.

  • Tigers' Beau Brieske: Beginning rehab assignment

    Brieske (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment Wednesday with High-A West Michigan, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Brieske has been on the injured list all season, so he will likely require a handful of starts in the minors before he's ready to make his season debut. The 25-year-old righty posted a 4.19 ERA and 1.20 WHIP through 81.2 innings across 15 starts last season.

  • Tigers' Beau Brieske: Throws live batting practice

    Brieske (elbow) threw a live batting practice session earlier this week, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Brieske came out of it well and is slated for another live BP on Saturday. He's been out all season following a nerve hydrodissection procedure on his right elbow in April but would seem to be nearing a rehab assignment.

  • Tigers' Beau Brieske: Transferred to 60-day IL

    The Tigers transferred Brieske (elbow) from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day injured list Tuesday.

    Seth Elledge, claimed off waivers from the Mets, will fill the vacant 40-man roster spot. Brieske resumed throwing last week but remains out indefinitely with lingering elbow trouble. He had a nerve hydrodissection procedure in April.

  • Tigers' Beau Brieske: Resumes throwing program

    Brieske (elbow) resumed throwing Monday, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

    Briekse has already experiencing a couple of setbacks, but he's on the right track again and will begin building up toward mound work. The 25-year-old has been out all season due to upper-arm trouble that was eventually diagnosed as ulnar nerve entrapment.

  • Tigers' Beau Brieske: To resume throwing soon

    Brieske (elbow) will resume a throwing program in one week, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Brieske recently had to be shut down due to a setback with his right elbow, but it evidently wasn't a major bump in the road. He's been out all season with a ulnar nerve entrapment, which required a hydrodissection procedure.

  • Tigers' Beau Brieske: Shut down with elbow issue

    Brieske (arm) halted his throwing progression Saturday after experiencing discomfort in his right elbow, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Brieske had recently advanced to throwing live batting practice, about four weeks after being shut down with what was eventually diagnosed as right ulnar nerve entrapment. Now there is again no timetable for when he might be ready to make his season debut for Detroit.
