Tigers' Tyler Holton: Handles bulk role
Holton allowed a run on two hits and struck out two without walking a batter over 3.1 innings in a no-decision versus the Dodgers on Tuesday.
Alex Faedo (finger) was initially lined up for bulk innings Tuesday, but he was placed on the injured list. Holton did a decent job in his longest outing of the season, limiting the damage to J.D. Martinez's fourth-inning solo home run. Holton has pitched well this year with a 2.13 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 70:17 K:BB through 80.1 innings over 55 appearances (one start). He could continue to be an option as a bulk reliever over the final two weeks of the season.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Tyler Holton: Notches first save
Holton picked up the save in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Pirates by striking out the only batter he faced.
Holton entered the game with two outs in the bottom of the ninth as the Pirates tried to mount a late comeback, down three with the bases loaded. After getting down to a full count, the lefty then managed to strike out Ke'Bryan Hayes looking on a changeup to slam the door on Pittsburgh and record his first save of the season. It was a nice bounceback effort for Holton after blowing a save in his last appearance, and he's now recorded at least one strikeout in four straight outings.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Tyler Holton: Opening Thursday's game
Holton will serve as the Tigers' opening pitcher for Thursday's game in Philadelphia, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Reese Olson had been on tap to start Wednesday before the game was postponed due to air quality conditions. The Tigers haven't indicated that Olson won't pitch Thursday, so it's possible that he or Garrett Hill will function as a bulk reliever. The 26-year-old Holton has yet to make an MLB start, and he was used exclusively in relief over 21 appearances between the Tigers and Triple-A this season. He hasn't covered more than three innings in any of those outings, so Holton seems unlikely to work deep enough into his start Thursday to qualify for a win before he turns the game over to the bullpen....

Tigers' Tyler Holton: Delivers two scoreless innings
Holton allowed two hits while striking out two over two scoreless innings in Tuesday's 1-0 loss to the Phillies.

Tigers' Tyler Holton: Will miss out on Opening Day roster
The Tigers will option Holton to Triple-A Toledo on Thursday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Holton appeared to be in decent standing for a bullpen spot throughout most of camp, but he'll end up beginning the season in the minors with the Tigers opting to include non-roster invitees Trey Wingenter and Chasen Shreve in the Opening Day bullpen. The 26-year-old southpaw should be Detroit's top choice for a call-up if the team requires an extra lefty arm out of the bullpen at any point this season.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Tyler Holton: Roster spot looks more secure
With Will Vest optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Friday, Holton seems to stand a better chance of making Detroit's Opening Day roster.
Vest pitched in 59 games for the Tigers last season, but he'll begin the year with the Mud Hens, which could open up a spot in the majors for Holton. The lefty appeared in 10 games with Arizona in 2022, posting a 3.00 ERA and 1.11 WHIP across nine innings. He'll likely be a low-leverage option at best, though he could be useful against left-handed hitters.... See More ... See Less

As a result of the team officially signing Andrew Chafin, Holton was removed from the 40-man roster. The left-hander will now either get claimed by another team, be released outright or remain with Triple-A Reno, the last of which seems the most likely. Overall, Holton appeared in 10 games with the Diamondbacks in 2022, allowing three runs over nine innings while recording six strikeouts.... See More ... See Less
