Tigers | Justin Verlander ready for first start

Mon, 03 Mar 2014 08:56:37 -0800

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (groin) is expected to make his spring debut Thursday, March 6, after going through a 30-pitch bullpen Sunday, March 2. "I think the feeling from the get-go was that, because of the type of shape he kept himself in, this was a guy that might have the ability to be back in time to start the regular season," manager Brad Ausmus said. "It seems like he's on track for that right now."

Fantasy Tip: We had a feeling that Verlander would be fine for the start of the regular season. If he can avoid any setbacks, he should be just fine. Verlander remains a fantasy ace and shouldn't be dropped on your draft boards.

Tigers | Justin Verlander not worried

Tue, 11 Feb 2014 13:21:16 -0800

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (abdominal) said he expects to make five spring training starts and be ready for Opening Day after having surgery on his core muscle this offseason. He called his injury "a blessing in disguise." "My goal now is the start of the season. Whether that's Game 1, I don't know. But I intend on being ready," he said. Verlander injured himself doing squats in December, and he likely would have missed two months if it had happened during the season.
