Tigers SP Justin Verlander exits spring start with triceps cramping
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

With the start of the season getting closer and closer, the Tigers did not want to see starting pitcher Justin Verlander leave his spring start Friday against the Blue Jays early. Unfortunately, that is what happened.

The 32-year-old right-hander left Friday's start in the third inning due to injury after he was visited on the mound by manager Brad Ausmus, pitching coach Jeff Jones and the trainer.

The Tigers announced Verlander left the game with cramping in his right triceps. He will be re-evaluated Saturday, but the Tigers don't anticipate him missing his next spring start.

Verlander allowed one run on one hit and one walk in 2 2/3 innings. The Blue Jays got their lone run off Verlander on Dalton Pompey's solo home run in the second inning. He struck out two. Verlander has a 5.63 ERA through five spring starts.

Tigers' Justin Verlander gives up 3 homers in start
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander had a rocky start on Sunday. 

Verlander gave up three home runs in four and a third innings, allowing five runs on five hits. 

Michael Taylor homered off of Verlander to start the third and fifth innings. Ian Stewart added a home run to start the fourth inning. 

Verlander also struggled with his control, throwing just 48 strikes in 79 pitches and walking two. He has a 6.08 ERA this spring, with five home runs in 13 and a third innings. 

Despite the long balls, Verlander said his fastball was the best he's had since a start in Seattle on May 30 of last season, per Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press.

Tigers choose David Price over Justin Verlander for Opening Day
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus named David Price his Opening Day starter, ending Justin Verlander's streak of seven consecutive Opening Day starts, per the team's official website.

This will be Price's fourth Opening Day start, and his first with the Tigers. He has a 3.54 ERA through 20 1/3 innings pitched on Opening Day.

"Looking at it from a baseball perspective, I felt this was the (right) decision and it wasn't an easy decision," Ausmus said, per the Detroit News. "Justin Verlander has been an outstanding pitcher for a long time. He has done a lot for the Tigers and this organization. But, I have to make a decision based on baseball and what is best for the 2015 Tigers."

The 29-year-old spent his entire career with Tampa Bay before being traded to Detroit in July of 2014. Price is 86-51 with a 3.21 ERA over seven MLB seasons. The left-hander went 15-12 with a 3.26 ERA and league-leading 271 strikeouts last year.

Tigers' Justin Verlander struggles Tuesday, calls slider 'horrible'
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander surrendered four earned runs on five hits and one walk in four innings while striking out three and serving up two home runs in Tuesday's 6-4 loss to the Nationals.

Verlander said after the outing that he dealt issues with his slider in the loss, MLive.com reports.

"Besides the misplaced fastball, the only thing they really hit was my slider because it was horrible," Verlander said. "I just kept throwing it to get a feel for it."

Verlander hadn't been charged with a run in spring training since 2013. He had tossed five scoreless innings in two previous outings this spring before struggling Tuesday.

Tigers P Verlander surrenders one hit in three innings vs. Phillies
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander put in another solid performance in Wednesday's spring-training game against the Phillies, allowing just one hit in three innings of work in a 6-5 loss. 

Verlander pitched three innings and struck out one batter. Verlander only faced nine batters as Odubel Herrera was picked off at second after hitting a double. Verlander's fastball was hitting in the 91-93 mph range. 

"I was pretty pleased again," Verlander said, via MLB.com. "I didn't throw quite as many curveballs. I don't really know too much about that today. I know the ones I did throw, I had some pretty good success on it. Other than that, it went pretty well. Threw a couple good changeups again. Slider was horrible, so I have some work to do."

Twenty-one of Verlander's 28 pitches went for strikes.
