Tarik Skubal News
Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Tarik Skubal (shin) said he has a bruise on his left shin but feels good otherwise and expects to be able to make his next start in the rotation. He was diagnosed with a left leg contusion after being hit by a comebacker in his start on Friday against the Cleveland Guardians. The 25-year-old is scheduled to make his next start on Wednesday on the road against the Minnesota Twins, and for now, fantasy managers should expect to have him available to pitch. The left-hander has been excellent so far in 2022, going 3-2 with a 2.22 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, eight walks and 50 strikeouts in 44 2/3 innings over his first eight starts.
Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Tarik Skubal (shin) was hit in his left shin by a comebacker off the bat of Cleveland Guardians outfielder Ernie Clement on Friday. He exited the game after the incident. Following the game, Skubal told reporters that he didn't think the injury was anything significant. He said that he was hopeful he would make his next start, which is scheduled for next Wednesday against the Minnesota Twins. His shin was swollen after the game and because of the swelling, he hadn't yet received any diagnostic tests. The team will certainly be running tests on him and monitoring him closely over the coming days, but it appears at this point as if he's likely to avoid the injured list.
Detroit Tigers left-hander Tarik Skubal left his Friday night start against the Cleveland Guardians after he was hit on the shin by a line drive. Cleveland outfielder Ernie Clement sent a liner back up the middle to end the bottom of the fifth inning. Skubal limped off of the field following the play and was replaced on the mound by Jacob Barnes for the sixth. The lefty was dealing before departing, tossing five scoreless innings with five strikeouts. Expect the Tigers to update Skubal's status at the end of Friday's game.
On a team full of promising rookie performances in fantasy, Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Tarik Skubal's 2021 season was perhaps the most encouraging of all. The 25-year-old set a Tigers rookie record with 164 strikeouts in 149.1 innings while also pitching to a 4.34 ERA and a 5.09 FIP. His biggest issue was the long ball. The left-hander surrendered 2.11 home runs per nine innings last season, hardly a sustainable number. One of the game's top pitching prospects prior to making his Major League debut, Skubal was limited to three and four-inning starts during the stretch run as the Tigers looked to limit his innings total. With a slightly more regular innings workload this next season, Skubal should be able to rack up more strikeouts. His bat-missing ability and velocity as a left-hander give him immense upside. Plus, the fact that Detroit should be competitive and pushing for a playoff spot next season with an improved lineup only boosts the left-hander's value as it could lead to more pitcher wins. His ADP, per NFBC, is currently 188. If you're looking for a pitcher to draft with significant potential late in drafts, similar to Trevor Rogers last season, Skubal is the pitcher for you.
