Top Alex Faedo News

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Undergoes minor procedure

    Faedo had a procedure Tuesday which involved a portion of his right middle fingernail being removed, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Faedo had visited a finger specialist, who recommended and performed the minor operation. The right-hander is receiving treatment and will resume a throwing program as symptoms allow. Faedo is eligible to return from the injured list next week, but a timetable for his return is unclear at the moment.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Visiting with specialist

    Faedo will consult with a finger specialist in Philadelphia on Tuesday, Evan Woodbery of reports.

    Both Faedo and Eduardo Rodriguez are visiting the specialist as they recover from their respective finger injuries. In Faedo's case, he landed on the injured list over the weekend with discomfort around his right middle fingernail. There's no timetable for his return.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Placed on 15-day IL

    Faedo was placed on the 15-day injured list Saturday with right middle finger discomfort.

    Faedo reported some tenderness in his right middle fingernail following his last turn in the Tigers' rotation Tuesday versus the Rangers. It doesn't sound like an overly serious injury, but he'll be sidelined for a little while. It's not clear how Detroit plans to fill the rotation vacancy, though Tyler Alexander could perhaps be elevated from the long-relief role that he's currently occupying.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Battling fingernail tenderness

    Faedo reported tenderness in his right middle fingernail after his start Tuesday, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Faedo has been getting daily treatment on his finger, and it is unknown whether or not he will be able to make his next scheduled start Monday against Philadelphia. His injury could help explain his struggles Tuesday, as he allowed six runs on seven hits and a walk over 4.1 frames.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Falls to Texas

    Faedo (1-3) took the loss Tuesday, allowing six runs on seven hits and a walk over 4.1 innings in a 10-6 loss against the Rangers. He struck out four.

    It was a tough outing for Faedo after he punched out 10 over six innings in his previous outing against the White Sox. His ERA is now up to 5.54 despite a solid 0.92 WHIP and 26:2 K:BB across his first five starts (26 innings). It won't get much easier for Faedo in his next outing -- he's tentatively lined up to face the Phillies on the road.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Strikes out 10 in first win

    Faedo (1-2) allowed two runs on three hits across six innings to earn the win Thursday against the White Sox. He struck out 10.

    Faedo's first win of the season was a surprising performance, as he came into the game with just 12 strikeouts in three previous starts this year. The righty entered the rotation in early May following the demotion of Spencer Turnbull (neck), and he's done pretty well with a 4.15 ERA and 0.74 WHIP across 21.2 innings. Faedo figures to stick as the team's No. 5 starter and take the hill again early next week against the Rangers.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Remains winless

    Faedo (0-2) took the loss Saturday, giving up three runs on five hits over five innings as the Tigers were tamed 5-2 by the Nationals. He struck out four without walking a batter.

    Detroit gave the right-hander a 2-0 lead after the first inning, but Faedo couldn't make it stick, and the Tigers' offense went cold the rest of the way. He tossed 53 of 72 pitches for strikes before exiting but generated only four swinging strikes, and his return to the big-league rotation continues to be a mixed bag. Through three starts and 15.2 innings, Faedo has served up five homers to help inflate his 4.60 ERA, but impressive control has led to a 12:1 K:BB and a 0.83 WHIP. He'll look for his first win in his next outing, likely to come at home next week against the White Sox.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Takes loss despite quality start

    Faedo (0-1) took the loss Saturday, allowing three runs on four hits and one walk over six innings during a 5-0 loss to Seattle. He struck out seven.

    Faedo allowed a two-run home run to Jarred Kelenic in the third and a solo shot to Teoscar Hernandez in the fourth, but he still submitted a quality start and tied his career high with seven strikeouts. However, the right-hander took the loss as Seattle's pitching staff combined for a shutout. It was certainly a better outing that his 2023 debut, and Faedo figures to remain in the rotation while Detroit has numerous starting pitchers unavailable due to injuries.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Getting another start

    Faedo will start for the Tigers on Saturday versus the Mariners, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Faedo permitted three runs (two earned) over 4.2 innings against the Cardinals on Sunday in his first start in the majors this season. The right-hander will get another opportunity against a struggling Mariners lineup but will be a risky streaming option.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Unspectacular in 2023 debut

    Faedo did not factor into the decision Sunday against the Cardinals, allowing three runs (two earned) on three hits and no walks over 4.2 innings. He struck out one.

    Faedo did a good job not issuing any free passes and did give up only three hits; however, two of those hits were home runs to Paul Goldschmidt. He was pulled in the fifth at 72 pitches despite not facing any threats on the bases. His performance was likely enough to earn him another go in the rotation should manager AJ Hinch elect to stick with a five-man rotation for the coming week. Faedo's next start would line up for a home matchup against the Mariners.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Called up ahead of start

    The Tigers recalled Faedo from Triple-A Toledo ahead of his scheduled start Sunday in St. Louis.

    Detroit optioned Spencer Turnbull to Triple-A in a corresponding move, potentially setting Faedo up to make multiple turns through the rotation as the Tigers' fifth starter. Whether he gets any starts beyond Sunday, however, will likely hinge on how he performs against the Cardinals, as Detroit could elect to get by with a four-man rotation thanks to three well-timed off days during the upcoming two weeks. Faedo has pitched effectively through his first five starts with Toledo this season, logging a 2.50 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 19:4 K:BB in 18 innings.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Set for spot start

    Faedo will be called up from Triple-A Toledo to start Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    The Tigers need to turn to a spot starter after a rainout forced a doubleheader Wednesday against the Mets. Detroit gets three off days in the 11 days following Faedo's start on Sunday, so Faedo might not get the chance to stick around. The 27-year-old's 5.53 ERA in 12 starts as a rookie last year doesn't inspire confidence, though he owns a 2.50 ERA in five Triple-A starts this season.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Misses Opening Day roster

    The Tigers optioned Faedo to Triple-A Toledo on Monday, Jason Beck of reports.

    Though he made 12 starts in 2022 for a Tigers pitching staff that was decimated by injuries, Faedo faced a tough path to a spot in the season-opening rotation with Detroit adding starters Matthew Boyd and Michael Lorenzen in free agency and getting Spencer Turnbull (elbow) back from Tommy John surgery. Faedo didn't help his case for a spot on the Opening Day roster by allowing seven runs on 11 hits and three walks over 5.1 innings. The 27-year-old right-hander will now head to Toledo but should be on the top candidates for a call-up whenever Detroit is need of a spot starter in 2023.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Struggles Sunday

    Faedo allowed three runs on four hits while retiring only two batters in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Twins.

    Faedo underwent hip surgery in July, which ended his rookie season. He entered camp healthy and has now had one good performance followed by this rough one. The righty is likely on the outside looking in at the rotation, with Spencer Turnbull back in action, and Matthew Boyd and Michael Lorenzen added in free agency. Faedo could settle in as a long-relief option for the Tigers, which would limit his fantasy value in the short term, though the former first-round pick still has some upside if he starts down the road.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Ready to compete for rotation

    Faedo (hip) told Evan Woodbery of on Tuesday that he feels great and is ready to compete for an Opening Day roster spot.

    Faedo pitched brilliantly over his first seven major-league starts last season and then got hammered in the next five. He ultimately posted a 5.53 ERA in 53.2 innings (12 starts) with the Tigers before undergoing surgery in late July to repair a torn labrum and torn capsule in his right hip. The 27-year-old is hoping to challenge for a starting job this spring, but he might wind up in long relief or in the rotation at Triple-A Toledo.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Beginning throwing soon

    Faedo (hip) is expected to begin his throwing progression by mid-November and is tracking toward a return to 100 percent health in advance of spring training, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Faedo looks as though he's ready to start building back up again after he underwent surgery in late July on his right hip. The right-hander, who is currently focused on range-of-motion work, turned in a 5.53 ERA and 1.64 WHIP in 12 big-league starts before being shut down with the hip injury.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Headed for season-ending surgery

    Tigers manager A.J. Hinch confirmed Faedo will require season-ending surgery on his right hip, Evan Woodbery of reports.

    The rookie right-hander will be undergoing his second major surgery of his professional career, as he previously had a Tommy John procedure in December 2020. After missing the entire 2020 and 2021 campaigns, Faedo bounced back effectively early on in 2022 to earn his first promotion to the big leagues, but he labored over his last few starts with the Tigers prior to being optioned to Triple-A Toledo shortly before the All-Star break. He was diagnosed with the right hip injury shortly thereafter and will wrap up his first year in the majors with a 5.53 ERA and 1.64 WHIP across 53.2 innings. Hinch said he expects Faedo to be fully cleared for spring training, which should allow the 26-year-old right-hander to compete for a rotation spot.
