Lobstein in the mix for Tigers' bullpen role

DETROIT -- If there's one thing the Tigers learned about Kyle Lobstein last year, it's you can never count him out. Lobstein, 25, wasn't exactly having a standout season with the Toledo (AAA) Mud Hens last year when the Tigers called him up because of Anibal Sanchez's injury. He was 9-11 with a 4.07 ERA and 1.48 WHIP with the Mud Hens. So naturally, in Lobstein's first four starts...

Game 2014.148: Indians at Tigers

Ah, back in first again, it feels nice. Kyle Lobstein will try to keep it that way. So far the Tigers have won all 3 of The Lobster’s starts, although Lobstein only got 1 W out of the deal (the other 2 were poached by Phil Coke after the bullpen blew the lead). Lobstein has been more than one could ask for for a fill-in starter, with a 2.78 ERA and a 1.191 WHIP. (Speaking of which...

Lobstein continues to be pleasant surprise for Tigers

Kyle Lobstein has had a rather unusual first few weeks in the majors. First, he nearly missed his successful major-league debut because of a series of mishaps while traveling to the Aug. 23 game from Indianapolis. Then, in his first major-league start five days later against the Yankees, Lobstein allowed only two runs over six solid innings, earning an "outstanding" grade from manager...

VIDEO: Kyle Lobstein Strikes Out 10 in Detroit Tigers’ Comeback Win Over Cleveland

J.D. Martinez was the Detroit Tigers’ hero on Tuesday night — his three-run bomb in the ninth inning turned a 2-1 deficit into a 4-2 win. But it was rookie starter Kyle Lobstein who gave the Tigers a chance for that dramatic victory. With the Tigers’ offense faltering early, Lobstein turned in another impressive start. This time, he lasted 5 1/3 innings, striking out 10 Indians...

Tigers send down Robbie Ray and recall Kyle Lobstein among 4 roster moves

After the Tigers’ pitching staff wet the bed last night to the tune of 20 runs against the Minnesota Twins, Detroit made some moves to relieve a once again taxed bullpen ahead of today’s double-header. Going to Toledo is lefty Robbie Ray who was good for an inning and a third while letting up 6 runs showing once again tremendous value from that Doug Fister trade over the winter...

Kyle Lobstein pitching his way into a future with Tigers

LAKELAND, Fla. -- Might Kyle Lobstein become this year's version of Drew Smyly? If Lobstein continues pitching as he did Saturday, when he tossed three no-hit innings against the Houston Astros, he could force his way onto the Detroit Tigers' pitching staff. Like Smyly, Lobstein is a cool left-handed starter who could temporarily switch to relief. That option could be a bit of a...

Lobstein enjoying his time in Tigers camp

LAKELAND, Fla. --  There's a reason the Detroit Tigers put Kyle Lobstein on their 40-man roster -- he has a chance to contribute at some point this season. The New York Mets originally selected Lobstein in the Rule 5 draft from the Tampa Bay Rays in 2012, and then sent him to the Tigers for cash considerations. Lobstein was one of seven players who agreed to terms Monday. The others...
