Alex Faedo misses Detroit Tigers Opening Day Roster
Despite starting 12 games for the Tigers' pitching staff in 2022, Faedo faced a difficult road to securing a spot in Detroit's rotation for the start of the upcoming season. This was due to the team's signing of free agent starters Matthew Boyd and Michael Lorenzen, as well as the return of Spencer Turnbull from Tommy John surgery. Faedo's chances were not improved by his performance in spring training, during which he allowed seven runs on 11 hits and three walks in just 5.1 innings. As a result, the 27-year-old right-hander has been optioned to Toledo, but he remains a strong candidate for a call-up should the Tigers require a spot starter during the 2023 season.
Bottom Line: Expect to see Faedo at some point in 2023
In preparation for the upcoming Major League Baseball season, the Detroit Tigers have made several roster moves, including optioning Alex Faedo and Edwin Uceta to Toledo and reassigning several players to Minor League camp. With the season set to begin on March 30th, the Tigers will start on the road against the Tampa Bay Rays before playing their home opener against the Boston Red Sox on April 6th. While Faedo faced a difficult road to securing a spot in the rotation due to the team's signing of free agent starters and the return of a player from surgery, he remains a strong candidate for a call-up if the Tigers require a spot starter during the season. The roster now stands at 41 players as the team prepares to take the field for Opening Day.
