  • Tigers' Will Vest: Earns win in wild game

    Vest (2-3) tossed a scoreless inning of relief to earn the win in Saturday's 11-9, 10-inning victory over the Dodgers. He walked one and struck out one.

    Vest was the last of six Detroit pitchers to appear in the contest, and he calmly navigated the top of the 10th inning on 12 pitches before Gio Urshela ended the game with a walk-off homer in the bottom half. The veteran righty has been solid once again this season with a 3.27 ERA and 36 strikeouts across 41.1 innings. Vest should continue to work in a high-leverage setup role for the Tigers ahead of Jason Foley, though it's a fairly fluid bullpen, and Vest could see some save opportunities down the stretch if Foley stumbles.

  • Tigers' Will Vest: Takes loss Tuesday

    Vest (1-3) allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits over 1.1 innings of relief to take the extra-inning Tuesday against the Guardians. He walked one and struck out one.

    Vest got the final out of the ninth inning but ran into some trouble in the 10th to take his third loss of the season and second this month. Despite the hiccup, the righty has been solid this year with a 3.43 ERA across 39.1 innings out of Detroit's bullpen. Vest should continue to work in a high-leverage role for the Tigers, though he's been clearly behind Jason Foley for save opportunities thus far.

  • Tigers' Will Vest: Struggles in first loss

    Vest (1-1) allowed three runs on three hits across an inning of work to take the loss Wednesday against the Rays. He struck out one.

    Vest has been mostly good so far this season, though his ERA climbed from 1.64 to 3.75 with this clunker. The righty turned in a 2.98 ERA across 48 games last year, so this poor performance will likely just be a blip on the radar. Vest should remain locked into a high-leverage setup role for the Tigers, but his fantasy value is somewhat limited because he's not seeing save opportunities at the moment.

  • Tigers' Will Vest: Pitching well so far

    Vest has logged 4.1 scoreless innings across four appearances to start the season. He's struck out four.

    The veteran righty has picked up where he left off last season. Vest recorded a 2.98 ERA and 1.10 WHIP while striking out 56 batters across 48.1 innings in 2023. It looks like he'll once again post good ratios with a decent amount of strikeouts if he keeps up his current form. Vest could also see some save opportunities in a fluid Detroit bullpen, though he's likely behind Alex Lange, Jason Foley and Shelby Miller in the pecking order.

  • Tigers' Will Vest: Rounding into form

    Vest logged a scoreless inning of relief with two strikeouts in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Pirates, lowering his spring ERA to 4.91.

    Vest allowed two runs while retiring just two batters in his second spring appearance back on Feb. 29, but he's otherwise logged three scoreless outings with four strikeouts. The righty was a strong asset for the Tigers in 2023, recording a 2.98 ERA and 56 strikeouts across 48.1 innings of relief. Vest should once again work in a high-leverage role in front of closer Alex Lange, and he's a candidate for save chances if Lange struggles, though Jason Foley and Shelby Miller would also likely be in the mix.

  • Tigers' Will Vest: Opening for bullpen game

    Vest will serve as the Tigers' opening pitcher Saturday against the Guardians, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    The Tigers are treating their penultimate game of the regular season as a bullpen day, with Vest unlikely to work more than an inning or two before giving way to a slew of relievers. Vest will be serving as an opener for the fourth time this season.

  • Tigers' Will Vest: Struggles in first loss

    Vest (2-1) allowed three runs (two earned) on two hits while retiring just a single batter to take the loss Friday against the Athletics.

    Starter Sawyer Gipson-Long allowed just one run across five innings, but Vest couldn't keep it up in the sixth, and he ended up taking his first loss of the year out of the bullpen. Part of the damage was a home run by Brent Rooker, which was just the third long ball allowed by Vest this season across 45.1 innings. The righty has been solid overall with a 3.18 ERA and 1.15 WHIP, and he should get a few more opportunities to pitch before the schedule wraps up.

  • Tigers' Will Vest: Secures five-out save

    Vest allowed a hit and struck out two over 1.2 innings to earn the save in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Dodgers.

    Regular closer Alex Lange blew a save Tuesday and had pitched three of the last four days, while Vest was fresher. Vest threw 23 pitches (15 strikes) to get the last five outs of this contest for his second save this season. He's added 10 holds and two blown saves, and he's on an 11.2-inning scoreless streak. For the year, Vest has a 2.80 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 52:13 K:BB across 45 innings.

  • Tigers' Will Vest: Snags extra-inning save

    Vest allowed a hit and struck out two in a scoreless inning to earn the save in Saturday's 5-4 extra-inning win over the Angels.

    Vest extended his scoreless streak to 8.2 innings with this effort, which came after Alex Lange blew a save chance in the ninth inning. This was Vest's first save of the season and the second of his career. He's added 10 holds, a 3.00 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 48:13 K:BB through 42 innings this season, operating in a somewhat high-leverage setup role at times.

  • Tigers' Will Vest: Reinstated Friday

    Vest (leg) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list Friday.

    Vest returns to the majors after four rehab appearances with Triple-A Toledo. In four innings he allowed four earned runs, but he fired a perfect inning in his last game. Before his leg injury, the reliever had a 2.53 ERA in the month of June. In a corresponding move, Chasen Shreve was designated for assignment.

  • Tigers' Will Vest: Begins rehab assignment

    Vest (leg) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday.

    A strained right leg has kept Vest on the shelf since late June, and he appears to be approaching a return to Detroit's bullpen. The 28-year-old righty holds a 2.73 ERA and 1.08 WHIP through 29.2 innings and figures to return within a week.

  • Tigers' Will Vest: Lands on IL with leg strain

    Detroit placed Vest on the 15-day injured list Tuesday with a right lower leg strain.

    Vest suffered the injury in Monday's series opener against the Rangers and will be sidelined through the All-Star break. He leaves behind a 2.73 ERA and 32:9 K:BB through 29.2 innings of work this season with the Tigers.

  • Tigers' Will Vest: Dealing with knee discomfort

    Vest was lifted from Monday's game against the Rangers due to right knee discomfort, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Vest is likely headed for further evaluation after exiting in the second inning of Monday's clash. The right-hander will be considered day-to-day until the Tigers provide an update on his status.

  • Tigers' Will Vest: Exits with apparent injury

    Vest was removed from Monday's game against the Rangers due to an undisclosed injury, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    McCosky notes that Vest appeared to be favoring his calf or leg, though the team has yet to confirm the extent of the injury. He'll be considered day-to-day until further notice.

  • Tigers' Will Vest: Opening again Sunday

    Vest will start Sunday's game against the Twins, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    The 28-year-old delivered a scoreless frame as the opener Friday and will receive another start in Sunday's series finale. Vest hasn't recorded more than six outs in any of his 23 appearances this year, so he should turn things over to the bullpen after an inning or two.

  • Tigers' Will Vest: Serving as opener Friday

    Vest will serve as the Tigers' opener Friday against the Twins, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Vest took his first opener turn of the year last Sunday against the Diamondbacks and worked a scoreless first frame. He'll look to repeat that Friday versus Minnesota, with Tyler Alexander likely slated for bulk relief.

  • Tigers' Will Vest: Opening Sunday's contest

    Vest will serve as the Tigers' opening pitcher for Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Vest hasn't recorded more than six outs in any of his 20 appearances on the season, so he's unlikely to work more than once through the order before giving way to Joey Wentz, who will work as a bulk reliever in his normal turn through the rotation. The 28-year-old Vest will be making his first start of the season and the third of his MLB career.

  • Tigers' Will Vest: Earns second win

    Vest (2-0) pitched 1.2 scoreless innings of relief to earn the win Wednesday against the Rangers. He struck out one.

    Starter Joey Wentz covered 4.1 innings before giving way to Vest. The latter has been a strong relief option this year, as he now has a 2.84 ERA and has struck out 20 batters in 19 innings. Alex Lange has locked down the closer job with his own stellar play, but Vest has carved out an important role in the Detroit bullpen.

  • Tigers' Will Vest: Continues strong play

    Vest tossed two scoreless innings of relief with three strikeouts in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Pirates.

    Vest cruised through the seventh and eighth innings on 17 pitches, with 15 of those strikes. The righty lowered his ERA to 1.42 in the process, and while Alex Lange appears to be locked in as the team's closer, Vest has been a great reliever so far. He has some fantasy value as long as he's contributing elite ratios and good strikeout numbers.

  • Tigers' Will Vest: Looks good in 2023 debut

    Vest tossed two scoreless innings of relief with four strikeouts in Saturday's loss to the Orioles.

    Vest was recalled from Triple-A Toledo earlier in the day and immediately looked comfortable in the MLB bullpen. The righty posted a 4.00 ERA with a 63:22 K:BB over 63 innings last season for the Tigers, so it was a bit of a surprise that he didn't make the Opening Day roster despite some struggles in spring training. He could stick around now, however, with Detroit lacking in established bullpen options.
