Tigers | Kyle Lobstein set for Tuesday

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 22:38:18 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Kyle Lobstein is the probable starter for Tuesday, April 21, against the New York Yankees. He remains in the rotation with SP Justin Verlander (triceps) sidelined.

Fantasy Tip: Lobstein beat the Indians in his first start, and is worth a flier in FantasyScore at just $3,000 (or 6.0% of cap) if you want to save money and load up on high-end hitters.

Tigers | Justin Verlander receives MRI results

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 13:37:14 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) had an MRI exam Thursday, April 16, and the results confirmed he has a triceps strain, according to head athletic trainer Kevin Rand.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander is quickly losing his mixed league appeal, and in a lot of formats there might be better arms available on the waiver wire, at least in the short term. In deeper formats, owners should continue to stash and hope. Check back for updates on what is next for Verlander and for announcements on when he'll return to the mound.

Tigers | Justin Verlander suffers setback

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 11:41:05 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) continued to be bothered by soreness Friday, April 17, two days after he had cut a simulated game short due to fatigue. However, if his condition improves, he could resume throwing as soon as Sunday, April 19.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has already been ruled out for the start against the New York Yankees Tuesday, April 21, and SP Kyle Lobstein ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) will start in his place. He should not be considered as a FantasyScore option until he has demonstrated that he is both healthy and effective.

Tigers | Justin Verlander won't start Tuesday

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 10:00:22 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) won't make his season debut Tuesday, April 21, instead SP Kyle Lobstein will make his second start of the season. Verlander cut short his simulated game Wednesday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has really come along slowly in his recovery from a strained triceps in his right arm. After such a long layoff from spring training, it isn't advised to use him in his season debut, whenever that may be. Lobstein ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) will be a midrange starting pitcher option on Tuesday against the New York Yankees at FantasyScore.

Tigers | Justin Verlander's sim game cut short

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 13:28:11 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) said his simulated game was cut short Wednesday, April 15, because of fatigue. He did not feel any pain or grabbing in his right shoulder and threw all his pitches, however he did cut back on throwing curve balls in the third inning.

Fantasy Tip: It is likely wise to avoid any temptation of starting Verlander in FantasyScore contests until he can return and pitch without restrictions. Plus, the jury is still out on whether Verlander can return to being a reliable starter. Taking a wait-and-see approach is likely best in all formats.

Tigers | Justin Verlander might return soon

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 21:31:47 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) will throw at least four innings in a simulated game Wednesday, April 15. It might be the final hurdle before the team recalls him from the 15-day disabled list. The simulated innings will last about 15 pitches each. It will be the first time he faces hitters since March 27.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander is rounding the corner and heading for home in his rehab, but FantasyScore owners will want to avoid him until he can officially return and make it through one full start without any restrictions.

Tigers | Justin Verlander to throw sim game

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 14:19:45 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) is scheduled to throw at least four innings in a simulated game against live hitters Wednesday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander's ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) next step will likely be determined after he takes part in his simulated game tomorrow. The Tigers continue to say that Verlander's injury is not serious, but they are being very cautious with him. It'd be smart to stay away from him at FantasyScore whenever he makes his 2015 season debut.

Tigers | Justin Verlander to pitch simulated game

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 04:49:26 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) will throw a simulated game Wednesday, April 15, in Pittsburgh.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) won't be rushed back, although he is important to the team, as the Tigers are off to a 6-0 start and can afford to take their time. As a previous post suggested, wait until Verlander gets the kinks worked out before sinking money into him.

Tigers | Justin Verlander to throw Sunday

Sat, 11 Apr 2015 12:42:15 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) threw 30 pitches off a mound Friday, April 10, although none of the pitches were curveballs. He is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Sunday, April 12.

Fantasy Tip: Although Verlander's ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) injury is not considered serious, it would be wise to avoid using him in FantasyScore in his first start after being activated. Wait until he has proven that he can be effective before considering him as a viable option.

Tigers | Justin Verlander feels good

Thu, 09 Apr 2015 17:07:56 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) "felt great" after throwing Thursday, April 9. He could throw a light bullpen session in the near future depending on how he feels Friday, April 10.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) is currently on the disabled list with a right triceps strain. Although he'll miss another start, Verlander's condition isn't considered serious, and the Tigers are being ultra-cautious with the righty. Still, it'd be wise to skip Verlander in at least his first start of 2015 at FantasyScore.
