Buck Farmer (groin) will throw a bullpen on Saturday

Buck Farmer (groin) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Farmer is eligible to return on August 20th. He likely won't need much longer than that to rejoin Detroit's bullpen.

Buck Farmer gets start in Minnesota

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.

Fantasy Impact

Farmer will likely slide back into the bullpen for Detroit. He doesn't hold any fantasy value at this time.

Buck Farmer leaves game on Monday with hip spasms

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.

Fantasy Impact

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 strikes out five in loss on Sunday

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.

Fantasy Impact

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.
