Alex Faedo has a right forearm strain and has been shut down for the season.
Faedo, a top pitching prospect for the Tigers, had a chance to make his MLB debut later this season. GM Al Avila stated that in a normal season, Faedo could have gone through rehab and been promoted, but it wasn't worth it in this shortened season. Look for him to debut sometime in 2021.
Alex Faedo has been placed on the ten-day IL. The reason has not been disclosed.
Faedo is a top pitching prospect for the Tigers, and is expected to make his major league debut in some form this year. Faedo is a flyball pitcher with a great slider, but doesn't profile to have as much fantasy value as Casey Mize, Matt Manning, or the also-injured Tarik Skubal. Check back over the next few days for updates on his injury status.
