Tigers | Justin Verlander beginning rehab assignment

Wed, 27 May 2015 10:51:32 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) will start his rehab assignment for Class AAA Toledo Sunday, May 31, according to manager Brad Ausmus. Verlander will throw 80 to 85 pitches in the outing.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) felt great during his simulated game yesterday, and he's getting closer to making his 2015 debut with the Tigers. However, he'll likely need several rehab games before the team is comfortable adding him back to the rotation. If Verlander is still available in your league, you should consider stashing him. He could be a serviceable matchup play, in both traditional leagues and at FantasyScore, when he's back.

Tigers | Justin Verlander to throw Friday

Tue, 19 May 2015 13:54:54 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) will throw another bullpen session Friday, May 22, and he will get up and down during the workout, according to manager Brad Ausmus.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) could move to a simulated game if everything goes well Friday, and he'll likely need a rehab start or two before coming off the DL. The Tigers aren't rushing him back, and you shouldn't feel compelled to rush him into your FantasyScore lineups when he's back in the bigs, either.

Tigers | Justin Verlander throws 'pen

Mon, 18 May 2015 15:50:01 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) threw a 45-pitch bullpen session Monday, May 18, and he said he'll likely need a simulated game and at least one rehab start before making his season debut for the Tigers. Manager Brad Ausmus said Verlander will likely throw another bullpen session before throwing a simulated game.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is likely at least several weeks from coming off the DL to make his season debut. You should be very skeptical of him at FantasyScore upon his return. Kyle Lobstein's ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) rotation spot is probably the most in jeopardy when Verlander is ready to come back.

Tigers | Justin Verlander could throw sim game

Mon, 18 May 2015 04:56:00 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) is slated for a 45-pitch bullpen session Monday, May 18, and he could throw a simulated game if all goes well.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander is making progress slowly from his injury, and the team is trying hard not to rush Verlander back. Shane Greene and Alfredo Simon have held the fort down to a mixed degree, and Kyle Lobstein has not been terrible replacing Verlander. It is looking like we may see the veteran by mid-June if this keeps up.

Tigers | Justin Verlander throws bullpen session

Fri, 15 May 2015 15:11:08 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander threw a bullpen session Friday, May 15.

Fantasy Tip: The Tigers will be cautious with Verlander ($5,200, 10.4% of cap), and there is currently no timetable for his return. He is worth stashing in deep mixed and AL-only leagues. Continue to check back for updates on his progress and a more concrete return timeline.

Tigers | Justin Verlander to throw 'pen Friday

Thu, 14 May 2015 09:59:23 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) will throw a 35-pitch bullpen session Friday, May 15, according to manager Brad Ausmus.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is being brought along slowly, and there is no timetable for his return. Kyle Lobstein figures to be in most danger of losing his rotation spot whenever Verlander is ready to return. In shallow mixed leagues, Verlander is best left to the waiver wire until he's closer to becoming a factor for Detroit's rotation.

Tigers | Justin Verlander may throw again soon

Wed, 13 May 2015 12:28:09 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) could throw a bullpen session in the near future, but it will depend on how he feels after he threw 25 pitches Tuesday, May 12.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is trying to work his way back from a triceps injury but there is no timetable for his return. Owners should continue to monitor the situation, but they should not expect Verlander returning for several more weeks.

Tigers | Justin Verlander throws bullpen

Tue, 12 May 2015 11:12:55 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) threw a 20-pitch bullpen session Tuesday, May 12, including fastballs and changeups. Pitching coach Jeff Jones said he was "very pleased" with Verlander's session.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is slowly building his arm strength back up, and it'll be a slow process for him to return to game action in the majors. Expect him to go out on a minor league rehab assignment eventually, too, before returning. A return to Detroit's rotation before June seems unlikely. You'll want to hold off from using him at FantasyScore for at least his first start back in the bigs, too.

Tigers | Justin Verlander threw Sunday

Mon, 11 May 2015 09:04:48 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) threw off flat ground Sunday, May 10, and he might be ready to do a light bullpen session Tuesday, May 12.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has yet to make his season debut, and the Tigers aren't rushing him back. It might not be until June until we see him back in the big leagues, but he might be worth stashing in deep mixed leagues if you have a free DL spot available.

Tigers | Justin Verlander cleared to throw

Wed, 06 May 2015 10:56:50 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) has been given clearance to resume his throwing program after his MRI exam results were evaluated. He will eventually return to full competition.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) hasn't pitched at all this season after injuring his triceps late in spring training. He'll need to rebuild the strength in his arm, so he isn't a realistic option to return to the rotation probably for at least another couple of weeks. He's not worth holding in the meantime in shallow mixed leagues, but he could be stashed in deep mixed and AL-only leagues with hope that he can eventually return and be serviceable to fantasy owners.
