Tigers' Reese Olson: Narrowly misses quality start
Olson did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks over 5.2 innings against Kansas City. He struck out seven.
The 24-year-old allowed just one unearned run, courtesy of his own throwing error, through the first five frames Tuesday. He surrendered his only earned run on back-to-back hits to start the sixth, and despite punching out the next two batters, Olson was lifted after 5.2 innings and 92 pitches, much to the dismay of fantasy managers in leagues that reward quality starts. After surrendering six earned runs to the Cubs on Aug. 22, Olson has held opponents to fewer than three tallies in six consecutive outings, posting a 1.51 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 35:13 K:BB across 35.2 innings. During that same stretch, the right-handed rookie has lowered his season-long ERA from 5.29 to 3.99, considerably increasing his fantasy draft stock for the 2024 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Reese Olson: Keeps rolling Wednesday
Olson (5-7) earned the win Wednesday over the Dodgers, allowing one run on two hits and two walks while striking out five over six innings.
Olson was sharp, keeping the Dodgers off the board until Max Muncy's solo home run in the sixth inning. Through four outings in September, Olson has allowed four runs across 25.2 innings, posting quality starts in each appearance. He's now at a 4.13 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 96:31 K:BB through 98 innings over 20 outings (17 starts) this season. He's projected for a favorable home start versus the Royals next week.... See More ...

Tigers' Reese Olson: Another strong outing
Olson (4-7) earned the win Thursday, allowing one run on two hits and four walks over six innings against the Reds. He struck out seven.
Olson didn't allow a hit until the sixth inning, when Jake Fraley singled to open the frame. The right-hander then surrendered a solo homer to Spencer Steer two batters later but was still able to get through the inning and earn his fourth win of the season. Olson has now allowed two earned runs or fewer in three consecutive starts to open the month, going at least six innings on each occasion. He's also recorded at least seven strikeouts in three of his last five outings.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Reese Olson: Quality start ends in defeat
Olson (3-7) took the loss Friday, allowing two runs on two hits and one walk over 6.2 innings against the White Sox. He struck out five.
Olson was locked in a 0-0 pitcher's duel with White Sox starter Mike Clevinger through six innings but blinked in the seventh when a two-out, two-run homer by Yoan Moncada chased him from the game. After struggling to the tune of a 5.29 ERA over his first 68 big-league innings, Olson has begun to put things together with a 1.50 ERA in his last three starts spanning 18 innings. He'll look to continue this momentum in his next start, currently scheduled for a home matchup against the Reds.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Reese Olson: Seven scoreless in win
Olson improved to 3-6 Saturday, allowing four hits over seven scoreless innings in a 10-0 victory over the White Sox. He struck out one and didn't issue any walks.
Olson needed just 79 pitches to cruise through seven innings unscathed Saturday, scattering just four singles in a blowout victory. Detroit handed him a 4-0 lead before he took the hill, and the 24-year-old clearly pitched to contact, as he managed only one strikeout in the outing. In the rookie's two starts following his rough outing against the Cubs on Aug. 22, Olson has allowed just one run and posted a 0.97 WHIP and 11:4 K:BB across 11.1 innings. He is currently slated for a rematch with the White Sox at the end of the upcoming week.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Reese Olson: Strikes out 10 but takes loss
Olson (2-6) allowed one run on three hits across 4.1 innings and took the loss Monday against the Yankees. He walked four and struck out 10.
It was a mixed bag for Olson, who needed 100 pitches to retire only 13 batters. However, the rookie also recorded a career-high 10 strikeouts and limited New York to just the one run, which kept the Tigers in the game until the bullpen faltered. Despite not completing five innings, it was a step in the right direction for Olson after allowing 10 runs over his last two starts (7.1 innings). The righty will look to keep this up and go a bit deeper in the contest during his next outing, which is currently penciled in for Saturday against the White Sox.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Reese Olson: Six earned runs in no-decision
Olson did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing six runs on four hits and three walks over 4.2 innings against the Cubs. He struck out seven.
The rookie right-hander stymied Chicago's offense through the first three innings, but the floodgates opened in the fourth when Dansby Swanson and Jeimer Candelario both launched two-run homers. Two more runs were charged to Olson after he was removed with two outs in the fifth, and Olson's failure to complete five innings prevented him from earning the victory. The 24-year-old tossed a gem against Minnesota on Aug. 10, but has allowed 10 earned runs across 7.1 innings in his two starts since then.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Reese Olson: Struggles but takes no-decision
Olson allowed four runs on eight hits across 2.2 innings and did not factor into the decision Wednesday against the Twins. He walked one and struck out three.
After holding Minnesota scoreless over six innings in his last start, it was a different story for Olson on Wednesday. The rookie labored, as he needed 67 pitches to retire eight batters and allowed way too many baserunners. However, his offense bailed him out in an eventual 8-7 Detroit win. Olson has shown some promise in his debut season, but inconsistency has left him with a 4.83 ERA overall. The righty should stick in the rotation, and he lines up to start again Monday against the Cubs.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Reese Olson: Dominant in win
Olson (2-5) earned the win Thursday, allowing two hits and three walks over six scoreless innings against Minnesota. He struck out eight.
The rookie right-hander turned in the best start of his young career, outdueling opposing starter Kenta Maeda to earn the victory. Olson had been mired in mediocrity in his previous four starts since rejoining Detroit's rotation July 16, going 0-3 with a 6.33 ERA and 1.45 WHIP across 21.1 innings during that stretch. The 24-year-old currently lines up for a rematch versus Minnesota next week.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Reese Olson: Takes fifth loss
Olson (1-5) took the loss Friday, allowing four runs on five hits and three walks over five innings against Tampa Bay. He struck out three.
Isaac Paredes drove in a pair with his double off Olson in the first inning, and Jose Siri followed up with a long ball in the second. That would prove to be more than enough offense for the Rays in this one as the Tigers were shut out. Olson remains with just one win in 12 appearances (nine starts) this season, but that's not all his fault. The 24-year-old righty has a 1.17 WHIP and 50:13 K:BB over 54.2 innings -- numbers that suggest there will be better days ahead.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Reese Olson: Gives up four runs in six innings
Olson did not factor into the decision Friday, allowing four runs on eight hits over six innings against the Marlins. He struck out two and did not record a walk.
Olson made his third straight start following the All-Star break and completed at least six innings for the first time this season. However, the right-hander continues to struggle with the long ball, having now allowed four over his past three starts and eight across 11 total appearances. Olson has been able to eat up innings at the big-league level, but overall, his results have been subpar and his role remains in flux.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Reese Olson: Falters early versus San Diego
Olson (1-4) took the loss Friday, allowing five runs on seven hits and two walks over five innings in a 5-4 loss against San Diego. He struck out five.
Three of the five runs Olson allowed were the result of Juan Soto home runs, but the right-hander was able to settle down and toss two scoreless frames before getting replaced. The lack of run support has been a trend for Olson, who's made back-to-back starts following the All-Star break. During those outings, he's allowed seven runs on 13 hits and two walks while posting 10 strikeouts over 10.1 innings, but the Tigers haven't scored with him on the mound in either of those contests. Olson's spot at the back of Detroit's rotation is far from secure, but he figures to get at least one more look with Alex Faedo still at Triple-A Toledo.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Reese Olson: Allows only two runs in loss
Olson (1-3) allowed two runs on six hits across 5.1 innings to take the loss Sunday against the Mariners. He had no walks and struck out five.
Olson pitched pretty well but got no run support in the 2-0 defeat. The rookie was limited to just 75 pitches after working in long relief his last two appearances, though he may be able to build that number up if he sticks in the rotation moving forward. Olson has looked good lately, compiling a 2.33 ERA over his last five games (19.1 innings), lowering his season ERA to a solid 3.96. He's tentatively set to take the mound again Friday against the Padres.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Reese Olson: Plugged back into rotation
Olson is scheduled to start Sunday's game in Seattle.
Prior to the All-Star break, Olson had made his last two appearances in relief, piggybacking starter Tarik Skubal for five innings and two innings on July 4 and July 9, respectively. With the Tigers optioning Alex Faedo to Triple-A Toledo last weekend, the team now has spots available in the rotation for both Skubal and Olson. The latter will take the hill for the series finale in Seattle, while Skubal will presumably start either Monday or Tuesday in Kansas City.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Reese Olson: Tosses five scoreless innings
Olson (knee) pitched five scoreless innings of relief and did not factor into the decision in Tuesday's extra-inning loss to the Athletics. He allowed a hit and walk while striking out five.
The Tigers welcomed back Tarik Skubal, who returned from flexor tendon surgery to start and pitch four scoreless innings of his own in his season debut. Olson left his last appearance early after taking a comebacker to the knee, but he didn't end up missing any time, and the rookie looked sharp Tuesday. With Skubal back, it remains to be seen how Olson will slot in moving forward, though with the Tigers missing several other starters due to injury, he has a good chance of sliding back into the rotation. Olson has held his own with a 4.02 ERA and 1.02 WHIP across 31.1 innings so far in his debut campaign.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Reese Olson: X-rays clean on knee
X-rays turned up negative Thursday on Olson's left knee, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.
Olson limped off the field after getting struck by a comebacker in the second inning of his start Thursday afternoon against the Rangers. He told reporters after the game that he expects to take his next scheduled turn in the Tigers' rotation, but the 23-year-old right-hander will be closely evaluated over the next few days before any decisions are made. Detroit's pitching staff has been brutalized by injuries in recent weeks.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Reese Olson: Dealing with knee contusion
Olson was diagnosed with a left knee contusion after being hit by a comebacker Thursday versus the Rangers, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports. He allowed one run with two strikeouts in 1.2 innings before exiting.
It's good news for an initial diagnosis, although it's not clear at this point whether Olson is set to undergo any additional testing. The right-hander's next turn is tentatively scheduled for early next week at home versus the Athletics, but it's too soon to say whether he'll be ready to take the ball that day.... See More ...
