Player Outlook
Jason Foley relied on his sinker more than ever in 2023 (69.3% pitch usage) after adding a tick of velocity (97.2 mph average) on the pitch. 45 of Foley's 55 total strikeouts came via his sinker, which also yielded a 57.1% groundball percentage that was 14th-highest among qualified relievers. The 28-year-old also set career-best marks in games played (70), innings (69.0), WHIP (1.16) and holds (28) while leading Tigers relievers with a 2.82 WPA. Foley briefly took over closing duties in August and finished the year with 7 saves despite lacking whiffs (17.9%) and strikeouts (19.9%). The right-hander has been one of Detroit's most reliable relief pitchers over the past two seasons and should reprise his high-leverage role again in 2024. Even more save chances could be in his future, especially if Alex Lange's control issues persist.

  • Tigers' Jason Foley: Blows save, takes loss Friday

    Foley (2-3) blew a save and took the loss against the Dodgers on Friday, allowing one run on two hits with no walks and no strikeouts over 0.2 innings. Foley was called upon for a possible multi-inning save with a 3-2 lead in the eighth but was instead charged with a blown save and the loss while recording just two outs. The closer has been shaky in July despite securing two saves, yielding four earned runs in 2.1 innings with just one strikeout. On the year, he is 15-for-18 in save chances with a 3.62 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 24:10 K:BB over 32.1 innings.

  • Tigers' Jason Foley: Earns 15th save

    Foley earned a save in Wednesday's win over the Guardians, walking one and recording the final two outs in the ninth inning. Foley was summoned to protect a 5-4 lead with one out in the ninth inning and stranded a runner on third to secure his 15th save in 17 attempts. It was a gutsy effort, as he entered Wednesday having yielded four earned runs over his previous four appearances. On the season, the 28-year-old owns a 3.41 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 24:10 K:BB over 31.2 innings.

  • Tigers' Jason Foley: Shaky but records save

    Foley allowed two runs on four hits but managed to secure the save in Friday's 5-4 win over the Reds. Foley started the ninth inning with a 5-2 lead but was generally ineffective as he allowed Cincinnati back into the game before eventually escaping. Despite the blip, the righty has been mostly reliable this year, compiling a 3.26 ERA across 30.1 innings and recording 14 saves in 16 chances. Foley isn't the most exciting option, but as long as he remains the closer in Detroit, he'll maintain fantasy value.

  • Tigers' Jason Foley: Earns 13th save

    Foley struck out one over 1.1 innings to earn the save in a 2-1 win over the White Sox on Friday. Foley was summoned to protect a 2-1 lead with two outs in the eighth inning and induced a groundout from Andrew Vaughn. He hit Paul DeJong with a pitch in the ninth but ended the game with a double play to earn his 13th save of the season. Foley has not allowed an earned run in seven June appearances and is now 13-for-15 in save chances with a 2.67 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 22:9 K:BB over 27 innings in 2024.

  • Tigers' Jason Foley: Blows save, takes first loss Friday

    Foley (2-1) allowed two runs on four hits without recording an out to blow the save and take the loss Friday against the Yankees. Foley came on in the ninth inning to protect a 1-0 Detroit lead, but the righty struggled and blew his first save of the season in 10 chances. He's still sitting with a solid 2.63 ERA overall and should remain the team's closer for now, though it's a fluid situation with Alex Lange, Shelby Miller and Andrew Chafin all potentially waiting in the wings if Foley stumbles again. Lange led the Tigers with 26 saves last year and has been sharp with a 0.75 ERA in 2024, so he may be the next man up in this bullpen.

  • Tigers' Jason Foley: Earns league-leading ninth save

    Foley allowed one hit and one walk over one scoreless frame to earn the save Sunday against the Royals. He struck out two. Foley kept things interesting by allowing the first two batters he faced to reach but induced a groundout followed by two strikeouts to join four other relievers with his league-leading ninth save in as many opportunities. The Tigers' closer lowered his ERA to 1.38 with a 1.23 WHIP and 13 strikeouts across 13 innings.

  • Tigers' Jason Foley: Holds on for eighth save

    Foley allowed two runs on three hits and no walks during the ninth inning to earn the save in Saturday's 6-5 win against the Royals. The right-hander was staked to a three-run lead and needed all of it as he surrendered his first earned runs of the campaign Saturday. Foley remains perfect in eight save chances this season and has a 1.50 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 11:6 K:BB across 12 innings.

  • Tigers' Jason Foley: Picks up fifth save

    Foley earned his fifth save of the season Tuesday against the Rangers after he allowed a hit and a walk over a scoreless two-thirds of an inning. Foley entered with a 4-2 advantage and needed just the final two outs, though he made things interesting by giving up a single and a walk to the first two batters he faced. The right-hander battled back quickly and retired the next two hitters on three pitches, and he's now a perfect 5-for-5 in save chances. Foley has surrendered just one unearned run through nine outings this season, and he appears to have a decent hold on the closer role as the only Detroit reliever with multiple saves.

  • Tigers' Jason Foley: Picks up win

    Foley (1-0) allowed one hit in a scoreless inning Monday, striking out two and earning a win over the Mets. The Tigers won in the 10th inning after Foley quickly worked through the ninth. The 28-year-old has already converted two saves and earned a win this season as he's seemingly locked himself into Detroit's ninth-inning role. Foley has four punchouts through 2.1 innings so far.

  • Tigers' Jason Foley: Earns second save

    Foley was perfect in two-thirds of an inning Sunday against the White Sox to earn his second save of the season. Foley appears to have won the closer role in Detroit, closing out his second game of the series sweep over the White Sox. While presumed closer Alex Lange struggled with his command in his first appearance Saturday, allowing three walks while earning one out, Foley has retired all four batters he's faced to seemingly solidify his hold on the job.

  • Tigers' Jason Foley: Held out Sunday

    Manager A.J. Hinch said that Foley (undisclosed) wasn't used in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Mets due to "mid-camp fatigue," Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. Foley doesn't look to be dealing with a legitimate injury, but he could be dealing with a case of "dead arm" after allowing three runs on three hits and two walks over 2.2 innings in three appearances so far this spring. He presumably isn't in any real danger of opening the season on the injured list but may rest for a few days before making his next Grapefruit League appearance.

  • Tigers' Jason Foley: Uneven start to spring

    Foley tossed a scoreless inning Thursday in Grapefruit League action against the Blue Jays and now has a 10.13 ERA this spring. Foley has allowed three runs across 2.2 innings this spring, so it's a very small sample size. The righty was effective for the Tigers last season, posting a 2.61 ERA and 1.16 WHIP across 69 innings, and he should be able to shake off this relatively slow start. Foley figures to slot in as a setup option ahead of Alex Lange, though he could see save opportunities if Lange struggles with command like he did in 2023.

  • Tigers' Jason Foley: Records another save Saturday

    Foley pitched a scoreless ninth inning with two strikeouts to record the save in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Guardians. Foley now has seven saves this season, with three of them coming in his last four appearances as he's taken over as Detroit's primary closer, displacing Alex Lange. Foley has a strong 2.63 ERA overall, though his ERA in August sits at 4.32, in part due to allowing three earned runs in an outing Wednesday. As long as the righty displays better command than Lange and avoids blowups, he should stick as the team's top option for saves.

  • Tigers' Jason Foley: Escapes with sixth save

    Foley recorded his sixth save of the season in the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Guardians, giving up a run on two hits while striking out one in the ninth inning. Steven Kwan led off the final frame with a triple, but Foley had a three-run cushion to work with and was able to minimize the damage. Alex Lange continues to deal with control issues, posting an 8:10 K:BB through 4.1 innings in August, but Foley is facing his own struggles as the next man up in the closer role. Foley has been tagged for four runs on six hits, including two homers, in his last two appearances.

  • Tigers' Jason Foley: Goes two innings for save

    Foley picked up the save in Sunday's 6-4 win over the Twins. He allowed one hit while striking out four over two scoreless innings. Foley got the Tigers out of a jam in the eighth inning, then tossed a perfect ninth to pick up his third save of the campaign and his first since April 25. Though Foley has operated in high-leverage situations all year as a setup man for closer Alex Lange, he has struggled when given the opportunity to pick up saves, blowing two of his five chances this season.

  • Tigers' Jason Foley: Takes second loss

    Foley (2-2) blew the save and took the loss in Sunday's 7-5 loss against the Diamondbacks. He allowed four runs on four hits and a walk over one inning. Foley had a chance to earn his first save since April 25 as he was called upon to protect a two-run lead in the ninth inning. After recording the first out, he allowed the next three Diamondbacks to reach safely before Christian Walker roped a two-out double, putting the Tigers behind 6-5 and ultimately handing Foley the loss. The 27-year-old Foley had allowed just one earned run in his last 11.2 innings prior to Sunday's outing. He still sports a solid 2.63 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 22:6 K:BB through 27.1 innings this season. With Alex Lange struggling, the Tigers may give Foley another shot in the ninth.

  • Tigers' Jason Foley: Secures second save

    Foley fired 1.1 scoreless innings and recorded two strikeouts to earn the save Tuesday in Milwaukee. The 27-year-old recorded the final out of the eighth inning and retired the side in order during the ninth with ease, taking advantage of the fact Alex Lange was apparently unavailable after he pitched each of the previous two days. Foley and Lange now have two saves apiece this season, though Lange should still be considered the favorite to close since he's dominated work in the ninth inning (seven appearances).

  • Tigers' Jason Foley: Takes first loss Friday

    Foley (0-1) allowed a run on two hits while not retiring a batter to take the loss Friday against the Orioles. Foley worked the bottom of the ninth inning in a 1-1 game and promptly allowed singles to Ryan Mountcastle and Anthony Santander. With runners on first and third, a fielder's choice by Adam Frazier ended the game. Foley has still been solid this year with a 2.25 ERA and a save across nine appearances, though the struggling Detroit offense generally makes the margin of error fairly slim for the pitching staff.

  • Tigers' Jason Foley: Figures to have prominent role

    Foley figures to have a prominent relief role for the Tigers this season with several key members of last year's bullpen departing in the offseason, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports. Gregory Soto is the most significant departure, as the lefty led the Tigers in saves last year. However, Joe Jimenez, Michael Fulmer and Andrew Chafin are also gone. That leaves the likes of Foley, Alex Lange and Jose Cisnero in a position to take on more prominent roles, though it's unclear who might emerge as the closer. Foley recorded a 3.88 ERA and 1.38 WHIP across 60.1 innings in 2022. However, he only tallied 43 strikeouts in that time, so the righty doesn't profile as an overpowering pitcher, which could make him more of a setup option.

  • Tigers' Jason Foley: Brought up from Toledo

    The Tigers recalled Foley from Triple-A Toledo on Thursday. He'll assume the 26-man active roster spot of Joey Wentz, who was optioned to Toledo following his first MLB start in Wednesday's 9-0 loss to the Athletics. Foley will give the Tigers a fresh arm in the bullpen for Thursday's series finale.
