  • Sawyer Gipson-Long Going For More Evaluation

    Headshot for Sawyer Gipson-Long

    Detroit Tigers right-handed pitching prospect Sawyer Gipson-Long (forearm) is getting further evaluation for forearm tightness, which usually doesn't bode well. The 26-year-old is also battling a left-groin strain, so he's not going to return to minor-league action for a while. The Tigers' No. 10 prospect, per MLB Pipeline, left a rehab start with Single-A Lakeland when he experienced right-forearm tightness. Gipson-Long made four starts for the Tigers in his major-league debut in 2023 and impressed by going 1-0 with a 2.70 ERA and 1.10 WHIP with eight walks and 26 strikeouts in 20 innings pitched. With Detroit having more rotation depth this year, there's no way they are going to rush Gipson-Long back to the big leagues if his forearm injury doesn't require surgery.

  • Sawyer Gipson-Long Dealing With Forearm Tightness

    Headshot for Sawyer Gipson-Long

    Detroit Tigers right-hander Sawyer Gipson-Long (groin, forearm), who made a minor-league rehab start for Single-A Lakeland after opening the year on the injured list with a left-groin strain, is now undergoing evaluation for right-forearm tightness, according to the team. It's a concerning development for the club's No. 10 prospect, per MLB Pipeline. The 26-year-old former sixth-round pick of the Minnesota Twins in 2019 out of Mercer University made his big-league debut in 2023 and impressed by posting a 2.70 ERA (3.16 FIP) and 1.10 WHIP with eight walks and 26 strikeouts in his first 20 innings over four starts. Gipson-Long is worth stashing only in dynasty/keeper leagues right now, but he could be looking at an extended absence, depending on the severity of his forearm injury.

  • Sawyer Gipson-Long Throws Live Batting Practice

    Headshot for Sawyer Gipson-Long

    Detroit Tigers right-handed rookie Sawyer Gipson-Long (groin), who has been dealing with a left-groin strain since the start of spring training, was scheduled to throw a live batting practice session in camp on Wednesday in Lakeland, Florida. Gipson-Long's groin injury has prevented him from competing for a starting spot to begin the 2024 regular season, but as long as he doesn't have any further setbacks, he should be ready to go shortly after the minor-league season kicks off. Per MLB Pipeline, the 26-year-old is the team's No. 11 prospect. He had 26 strikeouts in 20 innings over his first four MLB starts in 2023 despite having an ERA over 5.00 at Triple-A Toledo before his call-up. Gipson-Long could use some more minor-league seasoning before becoming an option for Detroit's rotation once again at some point down the road in 2024.

  • Offseason In Review: Detroit Tigers

    Headshot for Drew Anderson

  • Brendan White, Sawyer Gipson-Long Injured

    Headshot for Sawyer Gipson-Long

    Detroit Tigers right-hander Brendan White (elbow) has been experiencing posterior right-elbow soreness in camp and will complete a short period of rest before re-starting his throwing program. Fellow right-hander Sawyer Gipson-Long (groin) reported left-groin discomfort after throwing a bullpen session last week in which imaging confirmed a left-groin strain. White's injury could hurt his chances of winning a roster spot in Detroit's bullpen to start the year. The 25-year-old had a 5.09 ERA and 1.35 WHIP with 44 K's and 15 walks in 40 2/3 innings over 33 outings (two starts) in his rookie year in 2023. Gipson-Long, 26, is probably unlikely to win a starting-rotation spot out of spring training this year, especially now that he's hurt.
