Player Notes
Buck Farmer was knocked around in Saturday's loss to the Blue Jays, allowing five runs on eight hits over his four innings of work.

Advice: Farmer walked two and struck out two on the afternoon. The big blow against him came on a three-run blast off the bat of Edwin Encarnacion in the first inning. The fact that Farmer continues to occupy a spot in the Tigers rotation despite his 8.27 ERA and 1.81 WHIP speaks volumes about how their season has gone. He'll strive for better results when he takes on the Indians on Friday.

Buck Farmer was on the hook for three runs in 5 1/3 innings, taking a no-decision in Monday's 12-5 loss to the Reds.

Advice: Farmer had shut out the Reds over his first five innings, but allowed a solo home run to Eugenio Suarez and a two-run home run to Brandon Phillips before departing in what turned out to be a 10-run outburst by the Reds' offense. The right-hander gave up three hits and three walks while striking out three. Farmer has operated as a swingman for the Tigers but hasn't been much help, holding a 7.80 ERA with a 1.73 WHIP and a 18/13 K/BB ratio over 30 innings. With the Tigers' rotation hurt by injuries, Farmer could draw another start over the weekend in Toronto against the Blue Jays, which just spells trouble.
