Weinhardt has had a rough go at it recently, giving up at least two earned runs in every other appearance since the beginning of the month. He gave up three earned runs against the Yankees on Thursday, bringing his ERA in 18 games to 9.17.

Figaro's only appearance with the Tigers this year came against the Yankees back on May 12. He gave up two earned runs in only two-thirds of an inning, which is why his ERA is currently at 27.00.
