Kyle Lobstein moves to 2-1 for Tigers
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/26/15) Tigers starter Kyle Lobstein earned the win on Sunday, moving to 2-1 on the season.
Lobstein allowed three runs in seven innings, giving up six hits and walking two. Lobstein struck out four and threw 57 strikes in 86 pitches.
"The last time I faced these guys, I didn't have fastball command," he said. "It felt better today, and I think I was able to keep them off balance with it."
Lobstein's ERA is now 3.50. He's next scheduled to pitch on Friday, at Kansas City.
Tigers starter Kyle Lobstein takes loss after one-run, six-inning outing
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(4/21/15) Tigers starter Kyle Lobstein (1-1) allowed just one run on three hits Tuesday but did not get any run support in his six innings of work, taking the loss against the Yankees.|
The only blemish for Lobstein was a first-inning RBI double he allowed to Mark Teixeira.
"I would like to throw more strikes than that, try and get deeper in the game, Lobstein said. "But overall I was able to make some pitches to get out of some jams."
Lobstein walked four and struck out three in the defeat.
Lobstein's next scheduled start has not been announced as of Tuesday night.
Tigers' Verlander won't return Tuesday, Lobstein gets second start
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/17/15) Tigers starting pitcher Justin Verlander (triceps) will not be returning from the disabled list to start Tuesday against the Yankees, manager Brad Ausmus said Friday, per MLive.com. Kyle Lobstein will make his second start in Verlander's absence.
Verlander was unable to complete his simulated game Wednesday due to shoulder fatigue. He also said his triceps were a bit "achy."
Tigers' Kyle Lobstein allows three runs in win vs. Indians
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/12/15) Tigers pitcher Kyle Lobstein picked up a win in his season debut Sunday, surrendering three earned runs on eight hits and two walks in five innings while striking out three in his team's 8-5 victory over the Indians.
Lobstein (1-0) was the recipient of plenty of run support, as the Tigers were able to put six runs on the board by the middle of the second inning. He allowed his first run on a single in the first inning, and two more came across on another single in the third.
The Tigers have an off-day looming Thursday, and with Justin Verlander (triceps) only expected to miss one start, it's possible Lobstein will be making his next appearance in the minors.
Tigers' Kyle Lobstein primed for season debut this weekend
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(4/9/15) Tigers pitcher Kyle Lobstein is ready for his season debut this weekend, per MLB.com. Lobstein was recently recalled from Triple-A Toledo after pitcher Justin Verlander was placed on the disabled list.
"I was ready to get the season started anyway," Lobstein said. "I was ready for spring to be over with, just start playing games that really mattered."
Lobstein spent a good deal of time during spring training working to improve the pitches in his arsenal. But he doesn't plan on changing much about his game.
"Not much change," Lobstein said. "Definitely, my curveball is a lot better. As far as the other pitches, everything is pretty much the same. At this point, it's just trying to build up arm strength and get used to pitching every five days."
The left-hander finished spring training with an ERA of 3.60 in 10 innings pitched with seven strikeouts and six walks.
|2014 summary: The aptly-named Kyle Lobstein, a soft-tossing lefty, made his big league debut for the Tigers in August, and he wound up serving as a member of the rotation down the stretch. Lobstein filled in admirably for Anibal Sanchez after prospects Robbie Ray and Buck Farmer faltered, going 1-1 with a 3.10 ERA in his first five starts before turning in a clunker in his final start against the Twins. His final line for the season was a 1-2 record, 4.35 ERA and 1.25 WHIP over six starts and one relief appearance.
Playing time status: With Shane Greene and Alfredo Simon acquired this offseason to bolster the back of the Tigers' rotation, Lobstein will most likely be used as a "sixth starter," coming up for spot starts and emergencies.
2015 outlook: When the Tigers turned to Lobstein late last season, they were nearly out of starting pitching options, and to his credit, he performed as well or better than many analysts expected. Even in the off chance that Lobstein winds up in the rotation again this season, he's not likely to put up numbers that would be helpful outside of AL-only leagues.
