Tigers' Justin Verlander: Serves up yet another home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Justin Verlander was done after five innings Tuesday night against Cleveland, allowing eight hits, seven runs (seven earned), three walks and two strikeouts. He took the loss and is now 2-3 on the season.

He was knocked around in the first inning to the tune of 38 pitches, 28 of which were fastballs, and Cleveland went up 3-0 early. Verlander also allowed a home run, his seventh of the season, in just his sixth start -- that's a queasy pace for sure. He allowed just 13 in 20 starts last season and 18 in 32 starts in 2014. Verlander's propensity to serve up taters has us concerned. There's always a point in a pitcher's career where his velocity drops a bit and he's forced to rely on his secondary stuff. But we thought Verlander had already gone through that. This could be the next drop in his game, but we're not prepared to declare that at this point.

Tigers' Justin Verlander: Strikes out six in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Justin Verlander (2-2) had six strikeouts, two walks, and allowed three runs in 6.1 innings of work in Wednesday's 9-4 win over Oakland.

It's been a struggle for the right-hander, but he's leveled his record for the season and lowered his ERA to a still mediocre 5.46. Verlander does have 24 strikeouts in his last three starts, but he's already allowed 18 earned runs in five starts. He's definitely not the same pitcher he was a few years ago, so use caution when inserting him as a starting pitcher in all fantasy formats.

Tigers' Justin Verlander: Fans 10 in loss against Indians
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Justin Verlander allowed two runs on four hits, walking two and striking out 10 over seven innings of a 2-1 loss against the Indians on Friday night.

Verlander (1-2) who has struggled to a 5.79 ERA to start the season was impressive in defeat. He made just two mistakes - solo home runs by Carlos Santana and Marlon Byrd - but that was enough to saddle him with the loss. He'll look to build on this effort as he faces Oakland at home in his next scheduled outing.

Tigers' Justin Verlander: Earns first victory of 2016
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Justin Verlander (1-1) allowed three runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out eight over six innings, and earned the win Saturday at the Astros.

Verlander gave up a pair of first-inning homers before settling down and not allowing another run to score in his remaining five innings of work. Although he got bombed in his last outing, he now has posted quality starts in two of his three appearances, though he's yet to give up fewer than three runs in any game. He'll make his next start Friday against the Indians.

Tigers' Justin Verlander: Coughs up seven runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Verlander (0-1) got eviscerated by the Pirates on Monday afternoon, allowing seven runs on 10 hits in 4.1 innings. He struck out two and walked two in the losing effort.

Verlander was supposed to start Sunday, but had his date pushed back after the rainout. The change in schedule could have had a bearing on the result, as Verlander was very strong in his first start of the season. The righty posted a 2.80 ERA after the All-Star break a season ago and should right the ship shortly. He gets his next shot this Saturday against the Astros.
