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.
Tigers SP Justin Verlander goes on DL for first time in career
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/8/15) The Tigers announced Wednesday starting pitcher Justin Verlander was placed on the 15-day disabled list due to a right triceps strain. The move is retroactive to March 29.
Verlander was placed on the DL for the first time in his 11-year career. The Tigers also announced Wednesday they recalled Kyle Lobstein from Triple-A Toledo. He is tentatively listed as Verlander's replacement for Sunday's start against the Indians. Lobstein made seven appearances, including six starts, for Detroit in 2014. He went 1-2 with a 4.35 ERA.
The six-time All-Star and 2011 AL Cy Young award winner has been sidelined since leaving a March 27 spring training start against the Blue Jays. He appeared to be progressing toward making his first start of the season Sunday before Wednesday's announcement.
"Early on it was kind of grabby, I guess. Right now it's more just kind of achy. It gets tired quickly," Verlander said.
Manager Brad Ausmus said Verlander felt good throwing long toss Tuesday and is "extremely optimistic" Verlander will only miss one start, per the Detroit Free Press.
|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.
