Justin Verlander turns in strong start Friday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander turned in a strong start Friday against the Royals.

Verlander allowed one run on seven hits over 7 1/3 innings. He struck out four and did not issue any walks during the appearance. Verlander was exceptional to start the game, going seven scoreless innings to start things off. After giving up a double to open the bottom of the eighth, Verlander was pulled from the game. The run wound up coming around to score after Verlander left. He was charged with the run.

With the win, Verlander improved to 14-12. He'll take on the Twins in his next start.

Justin Verlander dealing with blister
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Tigers starting pitcher Justin Verlander has a blister on his right thumb that may have contributed to him leaving Sunday's start against the Indians after only 5 2/3 innings, according to the Detroit Free Press. He did throw 109 pitches, though.

"It got a little worse today, but judging how it's been in the past, usually it takes getting a little worse before it heals properly," Verlander said. "After my last start, it wasn't too bad, but there's like a crack in there and it continues to pull and get deeper and deeper."

Verlander wasn't sure if the blister would heal in time for his next start Saturday at Kansas City, but he doesn't intend to skip a turn.

"We'll see," he said. "I'm going to pitch, whether it's enough or not. I'll figure it out."

He again made it through two scoreless frames before giving up three more runs in the seventh. One run came after Verlander had already been pulled from the game.

With the loss, Verlander dropped to 12-12. He’ll take on the Royals in his next start.
