Tigers | Kyle Lobstein suffers loss Friday

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 19:09:00 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Kyle Lobstein (3-6) allowed six runs on eight hits over 4 1/3 innings in a loss to the Cleveland Indians Friday, Sept. 4, with two walks and two strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Lobstein ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) was making his first start since May after being sidelined with a shoulder injury. He is expected to make his next start against the Tampa Bay Rays Wednesday, Sept. 9, but he should be avoided in FantasyScore until he strings together a few solid starts.

Tigers | Kyle Lobstein returning to start Friday

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 10:23:38 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Kyle Lobstein (shoulder) was activated from the 60-day disabled list Thursday, Sept. 3, and he will make the start against the Cleveland Indians Friday, Sept. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Lobstein ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) had a 4.34 ERA and 1.45 WHIP in eight starts (47 2/3 innings) for the Tigers earlier this year. He should definitely be avoided in daily games in his first start since May 23, and he could have his innings monitored down the stretch.

Tigers | Kyle Lobstein rehab update

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 19:16:13 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Kyle Lobstein (shoulder) allowed two runs in three innings in a rehab appearance for Class A Lakeland Wednesday, Aug. 5. It was his first outing since landing on the disabled list in May.

Fantasy Tip: It would be surprising to see Lobstein ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) return to the majors before rosters expand in September. Owners in AL-only leagues may want to keep tabs on his progress but he can probably be ignored in other fantasy formats.

Tigers | Kyle Lobstein placed on DL

Sun, 24 May 2015 11:17:46 -0700

The Detroit Tigers have placed SP Kyle Lobstein (shoulder) on the 15-day disabled list because of left shoulder soreness. He is scheduled to undergo an MRI exam Sunday, May 24. In a corresponding move, INF Dixon Machado was promoted from Class AAA Toledo. SP Buck Farmer will be recalled from Toledo to start in Lobstein's place against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Thursday, April 28.

Fantasy Tip: Farmer struggled during a brief stint in the majors last season but he has gotten off to a strong start at Toledo this year, posting a 5-1 record with a 2.98 ERA. His high strikeout totals could make him intriguing to owners in AL-only leagues.

Tigers | Kyle Lobstein set for Tuesday

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 22:38:18 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Kyle Lobstein is the probable starter for Tuesday, April 21, against the New York Yankees. He remains in the rotation with SP Justin Verlander (triceps) sidelined.

Fantasy Tip: Lobstein beat the Indians in his first start, and is worth a flier in FantasyScore at just $3,000 (or 6.0% of cap) if you want to save money and load up on high-end hitters.

Tigers | Justin Verlander won't start Tuesday

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 10:00:22 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) won't make his season debut Tuesday, April 21, instead SP Kyle Lobstein will make his second start of the season. Verlander cut short his simulated game Wednesday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has really come along slowly in his recovery from a strained triceps in his right arm. After such a long layoff from spring training, it isn't advised to use him in his season debut, whenever that may be. Lobstein ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) will be a midrange starting pitcher option on Tuesday against the New York Yankees at FantasyScore.

Tigers | Kyle Lobstein to start Sunday

Tue, 07 Apr 2015 20:31:20 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Kyle Lobstein is likely to be recalled from Triple-A Toledo to start Sunday, April 12, against the Cleveland Indians in place of SP Justin Verlander (triceps).

Fantasy Tip: Lobstein could be a cheap FantasyScore option if you want to save salary to load up on stud hitters, especially since Lobstein will be facing a Cleveland team which was blanked in its opener.

Tigers | Looking for left-handed relief help

Sun, 30 Nov 2014 10:55:06 -0800

One of the Detroit Tigers' top priorities this offseason is to acquire a left-handed reliever, although they are unlikely to pursue free-agent RP Andrew Miller (Orioles). According to general manager Dave Dombrowski, they could convert one of their young left-handed starters (such as Kyle Lobstein, Robbie Ray or Kyle Ryan) into a reliever or look within the organization for help, although it is more likely that they will sign a free agent.
