This actually is good news for Farnsworth owners. He'll no doubt appeal the suspension and might even get it reduced a game or two but even at 6 games that's just a one week gap that you'll have to do without him. I was expecting much worse with Farnsworth's history so this gets a big
As for his fill-in most reports have it as German but we'll find out for sure when Trammel trots the guy out there the first time. It's only 6 games though so it doesn't really matter all that much...with the kind of ball the Tigers have been playing that will most likely be about 2 save opp's at best.
