The Tigers are expected to activate Buck Farmer (groin) from the 10-day injured list Thursday when eligible.
Farmer was placed on the 10-day injured list on August 10th with a strained left groin. He is expected to be activated from the injured list Wednesday or Thursday. Farmer owns a 2.84 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 1:3 K:BB across six 1/3 innings this season.
Buck Farmer (groin) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Saturday.
Farmer is eligible to return on August 20th. He likely won't need much longer than that to rejoin Detroit's bullpen.
Buck Farmer was tabbed for a spot start against the Twins on Sunday. He allowed two runs on two hits, walked one, and struck out two batters over 2 1/3 frames.
Farmer will likely slide back into the bullpen for Detroit. He doesn't hold any fantasy value at this time.
Buck Farmer exited Monday's game against the Indians after experiencing a left hip spasm. At this point in time, the severity of Farmer's injury is unclear.
For now, Farmer should be considered day to day. The 27-year-old reliever does not provide much for fantasy owners and if he is owned he can be dropped for someone on the waiver wire.
Buck Farmer (4-5) suffered the loss on Sunday allowing five runs (four earned) on seven hits over five innings. He walked three and struck out five Twins during the Tigers' 10-4 loss.
Farmer has allowed four earned runs in each of his last three starts to balloon his season ERA up to 7.12 in 10 starts. He carries a good 9.63 K/9 rate but is allowing 3.35 BB/9 and 1.88 HR/9. He is scheduled to get one final start against the same Twins' team on Saturday in Minnesota. He is not worth fantasy consideration.
