Faedo is rehabbing in Lakeland after undergoing Tommy John surgery, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Faedo suffered what was originally called a slight forearm strain at the Tigers' secondary site over the summer, but the injury wound up being serious enough to require major surgery. A typical recovery timeline would wipe out his entire 2021 season but give him a chance to be back on the mound by Opening Day in 2022.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
The Tigers have quietly assembled some promising arms on the farm, led by Casey Mize and Matt Manning. However, don't sleep on Faedo, especially those in deep keeper and dynasty leagues. The 18th overall pick in the 2017 draft put himself back on the radar, fanning 134 with just 24 walks in 115.1 innings for Double-A Erie. The 24-year-old righty features an average fastball with a plus slider and workable changeup, all thrown with a bit of deception from a lanky 6-foot-5 frame. Faedo's chief deficiency is consistency with his fastball, resulting in 17 homers allowed. He also struggles against left-handed batters. Look for Faedo to get a chance to hone his skills with the Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens to open the 2020 campaign. A callup is unlikely, at least before September, but Faedo should be on your watch list.
The Tigers' first-round pick in 2017, Faedo sat out the rest of his draft year due to workload concerns. He made his professional debut last season, starting 12 times for High-A Lakeland and 12 times for Double-A Erie. He didn't look overmatched at High-A, recording a 3.10 ERA at that level, though his ERA slipped to 4.95 with Erie. Combined, he recorded a 4.02 ERA, with a 22.0 K% and 7.0 BB%. His main problem was an inability to keep the ball in the park (15 homers in 60 innings at Double-A). Faedo projects as a back-end starter, with a good slider, a questionable changeup and a mediocre fastball to go along with decent control. There's not much blocking his path to the majors, but the Tigers will want to see better results against Double-A and Triple-A hitters before inserting him into the big-league rotation.
