Player Outlook
Tyler Holton didn't make Detroit's Opening Day roster, but he was recalled early in the season despite opening with a few rough outings for Triple-A Toledo (4 HR allowed over 7.2 innings). The southpaw ended up being one of the league's most pleasant surprises, leading qualified relievers with 85.1 innings while ranking 2nd with a 0.87 WHIP. The bulk reliever mixed six pitches effectively, including a new slider (.135 BA) that he threw almost exclusively to left-handed batters. Holton's 91.5 mph 4-seamer didn't blow away hitters and his 22.8% strikeout rate was below average, but he didn't issue many free passes either. In fact, his 5.3% walk rate was T-10th among qualified relievers. However, some ratio regression should be expected in 2024, as Holton's 2.11 ERA didn't sync up with his 3.55 FIP or 3.60 SIERA. Expect the Tigers to deploy the left-hander in a similar capacity this season.

  • Tigers' Tyler Holton: Earns third win

    Holton (3-0) tossed three scoreless innings of relief to earn the win Tuesday against the Guardians. He allowed two hits and struck out three. Detroit starter Kenta Maeda struggled in this one, allowing seven runs across only two innings of work, which forced Holton into the game in the third. The lefty pitched much better, however, and he managed to snag his third win as the Tigers poured on the offense in the 11-7 victory. Holton has been mostly good this season outside of allowing five runs while retiring just one batter back on April 26. He'll continue to serve as a long-relief option out of Detroit's bullpen.

  • Tigers' Tyler Holton: Snags second win

    Holton (2-0) allowed a run on a hit and a walk but managed to earn the win in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals. Spot starter Matt Manning only covered 4.2 innings, so Holton walked into a win by coming out of the bullpen first in the 11-6 victory. While the 2-0 record is nice, the lefty has been uneven with a 5.40 ERA so far, and he's already allowed three home runs across 13.1 innings after surrendering only nine long balls in 85.1 innings last season. Holton posted a strong 2.11 ERA and 0.87 WHIP in 2023 as well, so if he can keep the ball in the yard moving forward, he figures to find a bit more success.

  • Tigers' Tyler Holton: Struggles in Friday's loss

    Holton allowed five earned runs while retiring just a single batter in Friday's 8-0 loss to the Royals. He gave up two hits and a walk. Holton was ineffective in this one, and his ERA jumped from 1.50 to 5.11 in the process. The lefty was good for the Tigers last season, posting a 2.11 ERA and 0.87 WHIP across 85.1 innings, so this was likely just a blip on the radar. He'll have to string together a few strong performances to get his ERA back down to a more acceptable number, however.

  • Tigers' Tyler Holton: Continues to pitch well

    Holton pitched two scoreless innings of relief in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Mets. He allowed a hit and struck out one. Holton has now logged 4.1 scoreless innings with six strikeouts across three appearances to begin the season. The lefty doesn't seem like a top option for save chances at the moment, but it is a fluid Detroit bullpen, with Alex Lange, Jason Foley, Shelby Miller and Andrew Chafin all seemingly in the mix to close out games. For now, Holton looks like a strong setup option who could be a decent source of holds.

  • Tigers' Tyler Holton: Looks better Saturday

    Holton pitched a scoreless inning of relief with a strikeout in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Pirates, lowering his spring ERA to 4.50. Holton had allowed runs in each of his last two spring appearances, but he was sharper Saturday. The lefty now has four strikeouts across four Grapefruit League innings to go along with a 0.75 WHIP. Holton emerged as a key weapon for the Tigers in 2023, posting a 2.11 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 74 strikeouts across 85.1 innings, working primarily as a long reliever. The southpaw will likely serve in a similar capacity this year, and while he may vulture a few wins, his fantasy value figures to be inconsistent coming out of the bullpen.

  • Tigers' Tyler Holton: Handles bulk role

    Holton allowed a run on two hits and struck out two without walking a batter over 3.1 innings in a no-decision versus the Dodgers on Tuesday. Alex Faedo (finger) was initially lined up for bulk innings Tuesday, but he was placed on the injured list. Holton did a decent job in his longest outing of the season, limiting the damage to J.D. Martinez's fourth-inning solo home run. Holton has pitched well this year with a 2.13 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 70:17 K:BB through 80.1 innings over 55 appearances (one start). He could continue to be an option as a bulk reliever over the final two weeks of the season.

  • Tigers' Tyler Holton: Opening Thursday's game

    Holton will serve as the Tigers' opening pitcher for Thursday's game in Philadelphia, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. Reese Olson had been on tap to start Wednesday before the game was postponed due to air quality conditions. The Tigers haven't indicated that Olson won't pitch Thursday, so it's possible that he or Garrett Hill will function as a bulk reliever. The 26-year-old Holton has yet to make an MLB start, and he was used exclusively in relief over 21 appearances between the Tigers and Triple-A this season. He hasn't covered more than three innings in any of those outings, so Holton seems unlikely to work deep enough into his start Thursday to qualify for a win before he turns the game over to the bullpen.

  • Tigers' Tyler Holton: Delivers two scoreless innings

    Holton allowed two hits while striking out two over two scoreless innings in Tuesday's 1-0 loss to the Phillies. Horton has been solid of late for the Tigers, pitching to a 1.76 ERA over his last eight appearances (15.1 innings). The rookie left-hander lowered his ERA to 2.32 with a 0.94 WHIP and 23:8 K:BB through 31 innings this season while earning more high-leverage work in Detroit.

  • Tigers' Tyler Holton: Recalled from Triple-A

    Holton was recalled Saturday from Triple-A Toledo. Holton will join the Tigers' bullpen ahead of Saturday's game against the Giants. He figures to operate in middle relief. He's struggled through 7.2 innings with Toledo so far, allowing four home runs and posting a 7:3 K:BB.

  • Tigers' Tyler Holton: Claimed by Detroit

    The Tigers claimed Holton off waivers from Arizona on Friday After being DFA'd by Arizona to free a spot for Andrew Chafin, Holton will now compete for a spot in the Tigers' bullpen. The 26-year-old lefty made 10 appearances for the D-backs last season, posting a 3.00 ERA and 1.11 WHIP through nine frames. Casey Mize (elbow/back) was placed on the 60-day IL to make room for Holton on the 40-man roster.

  • Diamondbacks' Tyler Holton: Removed from 40-man roster

    Holton was designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks on Wednesday. As a result of the team officially signing Andrew Chafin, Holton was removed from the 40-man roster. The left-hander will now either get claimed by another team, be released outright or remain with Triple-A Reno, the last of which seems the most likely. Overall, Holton appeared in 10 games with the Diamondbacks in 2022, allowing three runs over nine innings while recording six strikeouts.

  • Diamondbacks' Tyler Holton: Back in majors

    Holton was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Wednesday. The 26-year-old was sent to Reno in late August but will rejoin the big club Wednesday with Ryne Nelson (shoulder) headed to the injured list. Holton has pitched in 10 games for Arizona this year and has allowed three earned runs with a 6:2 K:BB over nine innings.

    Holton was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Monday. Holton was called up by the Diamondbacks at the end of July and posted a 4.50 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in six innings over eight relief appearances during his month in the major-league bullpen. However, he'll lose his spot on the active roster after Caleb Smith (finger) was reinstated from the injured list.

  • Diamondbacks' Tyler Holton: Recalled Saturday

    Holton was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Saturday. Holton has spent most of the season in Reno and has recorded a 3.29 ERA and 1.25 WHIP in 27.1 innings over 18 relief appearances in the minors. The southpaw should pitch mainly in low-leverage situations but will be able to handle multi-inning outings if needed.
