Top Alex Faedo News

  • 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 MLive.com 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.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Done for season

    Faedo will likely require hip surgery and is done for the season, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Hip surgery is no small feat for a starting pitcher, so it's unclear if he will be fully recovered in time for spring training, assuming he does end up getting an operation. Faedo finished with a 5.53 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 44:25 K:BB in 53.2 innings (12 starts) for the Tigers.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Slated to visit specialists

    Faedo (hip) won't pitch at Triple-A Toledo this weekend as originally planned due to continued discomfort, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Faedo has been dealing with a hip issue since last week but was initially slated to pitch in the minors this weekend. However, he'll visit specialists in the near future to help determine the nature and severity of the injury. Manager A.J. Hinch said Friday that he isn't sure how serious the issue is but said that it isn't a good sign that he'll need to visit specialists, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Hip issue resurfaces

    Faedo, who was optioned to Triple-A Toledo after starting Monday for the Tigers, may not pitch again prior to the All-Star break due to right hip soreness, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Faedo originally dealt with the hip issue last week but was cleared to start Monday, but he surrendered four runs over 1.2 innings and was demoted after the contest. The right-hander could make his way to the injured list if the Tigers opt to limited his workload for a week or two.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Returns to Triple-A after loss

    Faedo (1-5) allowed four runs on four hits and four walks across 1.2 innings to take the loss in Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against the Royals. He was optioned to Triple-A Toledo following the start.

    Faedo was ineffective in the outing, needing a whopping 60 pitches to retire five batters, with only 29 of those in the strike zone. The righty left his last start July 4 in the fourth inning with hip soreness, and it's possible that was still bothering him somewhat, though the team didn't note anything new on the injury front. Faedo will now look to get back on track in the minors. Across 12 starts in the majors, the 26-year-old has registered a 5.53 ERA. He'll likely get another shot at some point with the Tigers dealing with several injuries in the rotation.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Cleared to start Monday

    The Tigers will recall Faedo (hip) from Triple-A Toledo to start the second game of Monday's doubleheader with the Royals in Kansas City, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    As expected, the hip injury that forced Faedo out early in his most recent start for the Tigers on July 4 against the Guardians won't prevent him from rejoining the big club when a spot starter is needed once again for Monday's doubleheader. Expect Detroit to designate Faedo as the 27th man for the twin bill and option him back to Toledo immediately following his start.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Looks on track to start Monday

    Faedo (hip) will join Detroit's taxi squad for its upcoming 12-game road trip and appears on track to be called up from Triple-A Toledo to start one half of Monday's doubleheader in Kansas City, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Faedo was most recently called up to start the second game of a twin bill this past Monday against the Guardians, with the right-hander exiting the contest early due to right hip soreness. Since he was designated as the 27th man for the doubleheader, he was optioned to Triple-A following the outing, but Faedo looks like he'll avoid a stint on the injured list. According to Chris McCosky of The Detroit News, manager A.J. Hinch revealed Tuesday that initial tests on Faedo's hip revealed no structural damage and only inflammation, so the rookie should be ready to pitch in the upcoming doubleheader if he experiences no setbacks during a bullpen session later this week.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Diagnosed with hip soreness

    Faedo left the second game of Monday's doubleheader against the Guardians due to right hip soreness, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Faedo is up with the club as the 27th man for Monday's twin bill, so as Woodbery notes, he'll be sent back to Triple-A Toledo regardless of his health. He'll likely be re-evaluated in the coming days to determine whether he'll require a stint on the minor-league injured list.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Leaves game with trainer

    Faedo was removed from his start against the Guardians in Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader due to an undisclosed injury, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports. He allowed three runs on four hits and four walks while striking out three over 3.2 innings.

    The team evidently spotted something in Faedo's delivery that looked off, and after skipper A.J. Hinch watched him toss a few warmup pitches, he was lifted from the contest. The club should reveal more on his injury after further evaluation.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Starting second game of twin bill

    Faedo will be called up from Triple-A Toledo to start the second game of Monday's doubleheader with the Guardians in Detroit, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    The Tigers will turn to a pair of rookie right-handers for both ends of the twin bill, as Garrett Hill will make his MLB debut in Game 1 while Faedo gets the ball in the nightcap. Faedo turned in a 2.92 ERA in his first seven MLB starts, but he faltered badly over his most recent three outings (11.12 ERA, 2.29 WHIP, six walks in 11.1 innings) before being optioned to Triple-A on Friday.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Optioned, slated for doubleheader

    Faedo was optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Friday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    With Michael Pineda (finger) returning to start Friday, Faedo will lose his spot on the active roster. The expectation is that Faedo will return to start one game of the Tigers' twin bill against the Guardians on Monday, though likely as the 27th man. Faedo has allowed 14 earned runs in his last three starts spanning 11.1 innings.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Lasts four innings

    Faedo allowed three runs on three hits and three walks with four strikeouts across four innings in a no-decision versus the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

    After going at least five innings in his first seven starts, Faedo has taken a step backward with three consecutive outings falling short of that mark. The fourth inning was his problem Saturday, as he gave up a two-run home run to David Peralta and an RBI double to Daulton Varsho. Faedo now has a 4.84 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 39:17 K:BB across 48.1 innings. Two off days next week should help the Tigers' understaffed rotation, with the rookie expected to make his next start during the weekend series at home versus the Royals.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Struggles continue Monday

    Faedo (1-4) allowed five runs (four earned) on eight hits across 4.1 innings to take the loss Monday against the Red Sox. He walked two and struck out two.

    Pitching against this Boston lineup at Fenway Park is a tough task, and Faedo never really found his footing, as the Red Sox scored at least one run in the first, third, fourth and fifth innings. That's two rough outings in a row for the righty, who's allowed 11 earned runs across his past 7.1 innings. Faedo has seen his ERA rise from 2.92 to 4.67 in the process. He's lined up to start again Saturday against the Diamondbacks, and given his recent results, fantasy managers should probably look elsewhere until Faedo shows signs of turning things around.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Gets shelled for first time

    Faedo (1-3) allowed seven runs on nine hits across three innings to take the loss Wednesday against the White Sox. He walked one and struck out five.

    All good things come to an end. Faedo had allowed two runs or fewer in each of his first seven MLB starts, resulting in a 2.92 ERA. However, his eighth career start was a buzzsaw, and the 26-year-old saw his ERA climb to 4.28 as a result. His FIP sat at 3.92 before Wednesday, so some regression seemed likely, but this was still a very disappointing outing. Faedo will look to get back on track in his next scheduled start Monday against a tricky Boston lineup.
