What it Matters for Detroit Tigers

With the Tigers expected to call up Faedo to start Sunday's game against the Padres, the assumption is that they will roll with a six-man rotation until the Aug. 1 Major League Baseball Trade deadline. Faedo will join Tarik Skubal, Michael Lorenzen, Eduardo Rodriguez, Matt Manning, and Reese Olson. With that being said, the Tigers could also decide to send down Reese Olson, who struggled in his last start. Time will tell, but we should have more info following tonight's game.

Faedo by the Numbers

So far in 2023, Faedo is 1-4 with a 6.98 ERA in six starts with the Tigers. He has struck out 28 batters while walking just four in 29.2 innings of work.
