Tigers' Beau Brieske: Covers two scoreless innings
Brieske tossed two scoreless innings of relief in Saturday's extra-inning win over the Angels. He didn't allow any hits or walks and struck out three.
After Sawyer Gipson-Long pitched five effective innings to start the game, Brieske cruised through the seventh and eighth. The righty has worked almost exclusively as a reliever this year, with just one start in 22 appearances. Brieske has been fairly good in the role with a 3.99 ERA, and it's possible he rejoins the rotation mix in 2024 after making 15 starts last year for the Tigers.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Beau Brieske: Takes loss Wednesday
Brieske (1-3) allowed three runs on four hits across 1.2 innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Yankees. He walked three and had no strikeouts.
Brieske was forced into action in the second inning after starter Matt Manning left early with what was later determined to be a fractured right foot. The former struggled, but it can be somewhat forgiven considering the tough circumstances. Brieske made 15 starts for the Tigers last season and could slot into the rotation with Manning out, though he's only made one start this season as he's shifted into more of a relief role. Joey Wentz, who's made 17 starts this year, will likely get the first opportunity. Wentz has a rough 6.65 ERA, however, so Brieske may at least be needed to cover some more innings out of the bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Beau Brieske: Takes first loss Monday
Brieske (0-1) allowed two runs on three hits across an inning of work to take the loss Monday against the Cubs.
Brieske had been fairly sharp before Monday, as he entered the contest with a tidy 2.12 ERA over 17 innings of work. The righty had also only allowed one run this month, but the Cubs got to him in the ninth inning, pushing his ERA to 3.00 for the season. Brieske should stick in a high-leverage relief role for the Tigers despite the hiccup.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Beau Brieske: Earns two-inning save
Brieske fired two perfect innings to pick up the save Thursday against the Twins.
Brieske was called upon in the eighth inning to preserve a 3-0 lead and delivered two perfect innings to secure the save. With two of the team's last three saves, the 25-year-old has added another layer of complexity to Detroit's bullpen hierarchy.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Beau Brieske: Records first career save
Brieske retired the final batter in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Rays via strikeout to record the save.
Brieske came on for Alex Lange, who recorded the first two outs of the inning but also walked three batters and tossed 20 pitches. It's too early to say there's a change in the closer role for Detroit, as Lange leads the team with 17 saves and should have some job security. However, it seems that Brieske could be an option for the role if the Tigers decide to make a switch at some point.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Beau Brieske: Hurls two scoreless frames
Brieske did not factor into the decision Saturday, allowing three hits over two scoreless innings against the Marlins while striking out two.
Brieske allowed a leadoff single to Luis Arraez to open the bottom of the first but managed to retire the next three batters, two by way of strikeout. The right-hander would come back out to pitch a scoreless second inning before being relieved by Joey Wentz to open the third. Brieske has not allowed a run in four of his six appearances this month and has issued just one walk over that six-game stretch while notching seven strikeouts.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Beau Brieske: Set for opener duty
Brieske will serve as the opener for Saturday's game against the Marlins, Paige Leckie of MLB.com reports.
Brieske debuted as a starter but has pitched exclusively in relief in the majors this season, maxing out at 20 pitches in an appearance. It's uncertain who will follow Brieske in Saturday's contest. The Tigers could make a roster move to add an arm like Joey Wentz, or they could go with more of a bullpen game instead of an opener-bulk reliever arrangement.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Beau Brieske: Returns from injured list
Brieske (elbow) was activated off the 60-day injured list Saturday.
Brieske has been out all year due to elbow troubles but is ready to go after posting a 2.70 ERA across 11 rehab appearances. He pitched exclusively as a starter as a rookie last season, posting a 4.19 ERA in 15 starts, but he's now working as a reliever since the Tigers elected not to build him up to a starter's workload during his rehab assignment....

Tigers' Beau Brieske: Works in relief in rehab outing
Brieske (elbow) tossed a no-hit scoreless inning out of the bullpen in his most recent rehab outing Saturday with High-A West Michigan, issuing one walk in a 17-pitch appearance.
Though he was a full-time starter in the minors and majors in 2021 and 2022, Brieske has now made a pair of one-inning appearances in both of his first two rehab outings as he works his way back from the hydrodissection procedure he underwent in April to treat a nerve issue in his right elbow. The Tigers haven't clarified that they intend to bring Brieske back from the 60-day injured list as a reliever, but with rehabbing starters Tarik Skubal (elbow) and Matt Manning (foot) both on similar timelines for activation, Detroit might not have room in the rotation for Brieske anyway....

Tigers' Beau Brieske: Beginning rehab assignment
Brieske (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment Wednesday with High-A West Michigan, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Brieske has been on the injured list all season, so he will likely require a handful of starts in the minors before he's ready to make his season debut. The 25-year-old righty posted a 4.19 ERA and 1.20 WHIP through 81.2 innings across 15 starts last season.... See More ... See Less
