Kyle Lobstein was tagged for five runs in three innings by the Blue Jays on Saturday.
Lobstein and Jose Alvarez were supposed to be the Tigers' primary rotation alternatives at the beginning of the year. Now that Alvarez is gone to Anaheim, it'll almost definitely fall to Lobstein to start if any of Detroit's starters get hurt. He has a 7.11 ERA this spring, though his 13/4 K/BB ratio in 12 2/3 innings is pretty good. Mar 22 - 5:10 PM

Kyle Lobstein pitched three hitless innings and struck out four Saturday against the Astros.

The Tigers have their five starters, but No. 6 is in doubt, with Jose Alvarez likely entering camp as the leader. Lobstein, a Rule 5 pick from the Rays a year ago whose rights were acquired after he failed to make the team, is another possibility to make some spot starts for the Tigers this year. He's not viewed as having much upside, but he had a 3.27 ERA and a 148/52 K/BB in 167 2/3 innings in Triple-A last year.

Tigers purchased the contract of LHP Kyle Lobstein from Triple-A Toledo.

Lobstein was removed from the Tigers' 40-man roster before the start of the season, but now he's back on. The 24-year-old put up a 3.27 ERA and 148/52 K/BB ratio over 167 2/3 innings between Double- and Triple-A this year.

Tigers sent LHP Kyle Lobstein outright to Double-A Erie.

The Tigers traded catcher Curt Casali to the Rays to retain the rights to Lobstein, who was acquired in December's Rule 5 Draft. Lobstein posted a 4.06 ERA and 129/69 K/BB ratio in 144 innings last season at the Double-A level. He has some promise.

Mets selected LHP Kyle Lobstein from the Rays with the 10th pick in Thursday's Rule 5 Draft.

Lobstein was then shipped to the Tigers for cash. The 23-year-old southpaw posted a 4.06 ERA and 129/69 K/BB ratio in 144 frames this summer at Double-A Montgomery.
