Replay system distresses Ausmus in Tigers' loss to Reds
JUN 16, 10:42p ET | DANA WAKIJI
Rotowire: Jul 27 / 8:08a ET
News: Alburquerque has 42 strikeouts in 42.1 innings of work this season.
Impact: The strikeouts are great, but his 1.42 WHIP is a bit high for our liking and his K:BB rate (42:22) doesn't instill confidence either. Like most of the Tigers' bullpen, Alburquerque is struggling to keep runners from getting on base and scoring. Right now, he doesn't even offer much value to those in leagues that count holds.
Rotowire: Jun 2 / 9:29a ET
News: Alburquerque has allowed just one run and has posted a 13:4 K:BB in his last 11 appearances.
Impact: He started slowly this season, but has pitched well of late. He does have an option remaining, so he could still be demoted if the Tigers need to make a roster move, but that appears unlikely at this point given his improved play.
